I just pre-ordered my copy from amazon. I can't wait till it get here
getting mines on gog! I hope they sell more than the witcher 1! If u don't have the witcher 1 yet it's 5 bucks this week on there site! Cd Projekt , Dice & Deus EX get my money for Making PC the way it's meant to be!
^^^whatever you're downloading from isohunt is fake brah
sack_boi lol don't forget its useless unless your Russian. it was claimed to be English but is not. well I pre order my copy along time ago can't wait.
i dont have a problem with that, as long as you buy it later if you like it.
There's absolutely no reason you shouldn't get it from GoG.com if you buy digitally. No DRM Free bonus game Cheapest price Tons of bonus material No middleman (GoG.com owned by the devs)
I haven't checked out the GoG site to see what deals they have. I figured since I own the hard copy of the first one which is linked to my steam account I'd get the second one hardcopy. I love these D2D site for pc games it's just it's hard sometimes just to buy one game.i also ways end up buying more than i was suppose to. I'm such a sucker for a good deal lol
I haven't beat the 1st so I won't buy the second.
I just bought the first, and pre-ordered the second on Steam yesterday. I was blown away with what I saw coming from Witcher 2, that I felt obligated to play the first one as well. Loving it so far.
I just wish my computer could run it :(
I have a hunch you're not alone in those feelings :)
I really hope they eventually release all the preorder DLC for sale...
I am sure they will and for free :)
Yeah, I'm kinda fussy with my DLC and games. I hate when developers "forget" about releasing them.
I'm playing The first one right now I like some of what they did but the pacing can really slow down sometimes. you get lost doing a lot of fetch quests most of the time. The combat is somewhat annoying and the story takes a while to pick up after hours of playing, but if you're looking for a open, mature rpg. You should definitely buy "The Witcher Enhanced Edition". Can't wait to play part 2 they seem to have improved on all the problems mentioned above.
Yeah I guess some people had quite a few issues with the game which led to the Enhanced Edition's development (which is something awesome, they improved their successful game for free. The only other time I have ever seen such a thing was when Hydrophobia received its Pure patch). This shows CD Projekt cares about players' feedback and The Witcher 2, after 3 years of development, is certainly going to be an almost flawless amazing experience. I can't believe I'm saying all that without having played the first one (it's a shame really, and according to the demo, which isn't that representative of the game, it would be hard for me to get used to the game's gameplay). I think, if my 1 week old laptop can handle The Witcher 2, I'll probably buy the first one before. The only thing that bothers me is that I'm having a lot of framerate issues with The Witcher's demo while Mass Effect, which I've only discovered 2 days ago, plays perfectly on max settings. I really don't want to end up not being able to play it comfortably. What also bothers me is that, according to what CD Projekt said, I have all the requirements to run The Witcher 2 (not necesarily on max settings). I do hope it's only an Aurora engine issue (not being optimized?) and that CD's new engine will work better. Eh. I'm a console gamer (well I had no other choice), I've had a stupid laptop for 4 years and now I finally find myself able to play great PC games like Crysis which I've owned for 3 years (not sure why). This is all new to me and I don't quite understand why I can't get some games to run properly.
Yea man don't worry about the low frame rate in The Witcher. I have a pretty good computer that can run most modern games maxed, but the first withcer absolutely killed my computer in some parts. It was a horribly optimized game and the new engine is suppose to be incredibly optimized from what I've read and heard.
Then this is going to be awesome. I think I'll still try to play the first one though, even if I have to lower the settings, at least to get to know the characters (It's not like it is expensive anymore). But I need to do that before playing TW2, as it will probably feel like playing a bad game should I start TW1 after TW2. Now even though it isn't important anymore to me, I hope CDP will be able to port their engine to consoles. They've done an amazing job so far, if they can keep that level of quality and bring it to a wider audience, they'd surprise everyone.
At bellcross don't worry there is not that much fetch quests in witcher 2 due to your exact same problem. Witcher 1 is also a hard game to get into (not in difficulty but just the feel of it)it took me 3 times to finish it because I never got past the first section, but one day I forced myself to finish it, and once you have passed a certain part you will suddenly click and realize "aaah so that's why it is a classic game". The witcher 2 looks like it is going way beyond my expectations for it, the preorders are pretty good and I am sure sales will be good especially when the scores come in, so far two scores 95% Pc gamer and 93%CD action. Sure there are more where those came from.
