Oh look, 'tis that Witcher again.

 

"State of the art graphics!"

 

*footage of a nude woman*

 

YES

 

 

About the Unlimited detail-thingie, i am very sceptical before there's an SDK or anything that other could be considered as useful.

You know, This story sounds almost to sensational to be true. A guy is turned from a productive person into a coke addict with a gaming habit by ONE set of games? *Shrugs*

The Witcher 2 : Assassins of Kings first preview.

 

Revamped dialogue system vaguely similar to AP's, 'companions' more integral to the experience, more action-y combat system, no loading times for area transitions, 'romance system' (it's actually a gameplay element? never noticed) etc..

 

Mostly sounds good, not sure about the new dialogue system.

Considering that the "romance-system" in the previous installment was collecting cards of your, eh "lays", i bet that it will be more refined in this one. Like a game of poker, perhaps?

 

I wonder who the "Queen of diamonds" will be? and gays would be able to collect all four "kings", or so to speak :biggrin:

That was a really nothing trailer. Basically just a pimp piece aimed at people who've never heard of the game before.

Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

But apparently, it seems there was a subliminal message from the developers hidden in that trailer.

 

This message is for our biggest fans. Analyzing our stuff pixel by pixel, bit by bit. It's good to see you again! :sweat:

BTW: Simple minded people think that nobody is reading those days, dear reader of this, we think that we can agree that it is bull****, huh?

Same as the fact that single player RPGs are dead, or PCs?

We sold 1.5 mln units game from dying genre on dying platform - so we somehow cannot agree;-)

 

Before we start talking about TW2:) please let us thank you for your great support and appreciation. It always motivate us and make us happy.

 

We started working on TW2 right after release of TW. Our goal was to create all the things which made TW so great in TW2 even better.

We are very proud of TW but let be honest it was our debut. We never made any game before, and we practically learnt as we worked.

So there were many things which could be done better, you know it as good as we :)

But the vision, the main concept remain the same: game with mature, captivating and unliniear story, and full of spectacular combat.

A game created by a team of independent thinkers immune to corporate priorities, who don't care what's trendy at a given moment.

 

The core vision of the game hasn't changed. What has changed is the quality and the maturity we can deliver.

That's largely because, we're more experienced and also due the fact that, we've created our own technology.

Do you remember how we made significant improvements with the Aurora Engine in the original game, but it still had its limitations?

Now we've created technology designed specifically to create non-linear games with extensive plotlines and a living world... well, there's no point in expanding on that too much - you have to check our tech yourselves!

Nevertheless, we have many reasons to believe that you will like The Witcher 2!

See you soon and stay tuned :blink:

Get naked through magic?

I think it was more that they were reviving what was generally considered a dead genre.

Basically, they did exactly what the main part of the whole advertising was. They proclaimed how awesome they are, blah blah blah. Why use a secret message to say the exact same thing you said the normal way? Does not compute.

DWARVES IN PROJECT ETERNITY = VOLOURN HAS PLEDGED $250.

Wow, apparently World of Warcraft is quite the tool for examining how to manage people in a business like atmosphere (and also is a good place to find for the social dynamics of gangs (re:guilds))

I'd probably spring for it, I admit... mostly because i love the discussions with the devs.
