The Witcher 2 Hands On Preview - The Average Gamer

Brett played the opening of The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360.

Players new to the series will miss out on some references to the game’s backstory, but these are relatively minor. The first flashback begins with Geralt in bed with a red-headed woman before being summoned by the king to fight in war over a ‘lover’s tiff’ with the queen. It was surprising to see such well written, mature and multi-layered narratives, something so rare in videogames, particularly character-driven RPGs.

the pc version didnt have a steep learning curve... it was just kind of hard at the start pre patch. After reading the first paragraph I knew the writer was an idiot.

Wow man, you can't even be glad that other have the opritunity to play the game. Its sad to see a PC snob be the first to comment about how someones an idiot because their choice of system. If this was about graphics you might have room to talk, but this is about enjoying the expereince that the game provides. Also, steep learning curve pretty much = kind of hard.

Yeah, there really wan't a tutorial at launch, and it a lot of people a good amount of time to figure out how to play the game properly. I wouldn't say it was all that difficult; the tools were there to make you able to succeed, but they just didn't really tell you about them =\

what are you talking about? Hes an idiot because of what he wrote not his choice of system. What if someone wrote an article about a game coming to pc and started off by with false information about why consoles suck? And there wasnt much learning curve at the start of the game, it was easy to figure out what to do but you died really easily. I would hate to see people with a game with an actual steep learning curve, like they used to be years ago both on console and pc.

He didn't say PCs suck. He said he could not afford buying or maintaining a gaming PC that in his opinion would have a decent enough level of power to have a worthwhile focus on gaming. There was no false info stated.

I'm a PC gamer to I know its expensive to maintain that higher level of fidelity, not to mention all the issues that can randomly pop up.

Are you kidding, playing on hard pre-patch, I died twice in the first quater of the game. The first time I just wasn't sure what was properly effective, the other time was a glitch that was later patched.
