The Witcher 2

Recommended Posts

The first two screens look like they came from a dev diary. Hopefully we'll get a new one soon.

They were sent by play testers apparently. Not sure how hat's supposed to work. :verymad:

Is that Turkish?

I'd go with Hungarian, but the two look really similar to me.

Remember where I'm from? Hint: not Turkey.

 

 

Chicken??!?

I am sorry.

Well your avatar is romanian but you strike me as someone from a little more to the west.


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

The screenshots say "Those who did this are not among the living any more." "They're going to gut, skin and hang you." "What a beautiful day for battle! Fear not my lord, we are outside the reach of their crossbows." respectively, in case anyone was wondering.

Ok and what language is it?

I've no idea how its going to play, but there's no denying that Witcher 2 is visually awesome. DA2 looks pathetic by comparison.

 

They really need to cut down on the cocaine buckets at Bio and siphon some of the budget into the actual game.

Then what the hell are they going to use for the fried chicken?

Looks pretty. The quote about the crossbows is followed by the speaker getting shot with a crossbow, I hope.

Thanks, Oner!

 

The game does look very graphically impressive. Given what they got out of the Aurora engine, I can't say I'm too surprised. They have some seriously talented people over at CDP.

Watched the

and a newer gameplay video, still too much pirouetting and rolling around for my tastes, but the swords look less generic over exaggerated fantasy and closer to Albion's next generation line. Win some, lose some, I guess.

 

Improved inventory system is good, though I wonder whether they still limit you to one steel sword, one silver sword and armour dependent slots for heavy and light weapons in the inventory.

Igni and Aard look to have been changed from arcs to on-hits, Yrden is now a one use trap, Axii requires a channeled cast to convert the enemy, but I didn't see Quen in either video, I assume it's not much changed from the Witcher.

Also not seeing the group style or some of the more exaggerated strong and fast style moves in either gameplay demonstration, hopefully the devs realized how ridiculous they looked.

I'm a bit wary of the combat since that targeting system looks suspiciously similar to the one used in DA2 for consoles.

 

One thing though, I don't understand why everyone and their mother decided to go for a minimalist UI. I saw it in ME2, DA2 and now the Witcher 2's been bitten by the same bug?

Eh, I'm looking forward to it as most things seemed improved on, even if some are just somewhat so, and the engine looks great. I just wish the voice acting were one of those things improved on. It just feels cheap and fake, and so I guess I'm going to have to get the game for PC and hope that they release the language packs(or dunno if they'll do that for consoles as well).

I have this nagging feeling that consoles are related. The combat gameplay vid we saw a month or two ago had an UI that looked like it had been pulled from console DAO. We'll see.

It's a surprise that CD Projekt's Howardian promises of the game having 60+ endings hasn't been scrutinized at all.

Thought it was 16 or so.
