The Witcher 2

Recommended Posts

Except you can run Portal 2 and Starcraft 2 on my 5 year old pc on max settings.

 

I'm not complaining I'm just saying I'd have to throw down a couple of hundred euros to play the Witcher, Crysis 2 and not much else.

Yeah...PC used to be pushing the tech at every turn, and if your system weren't powerful enough, then you could tweak a multitude of settings and get it looking how you want with the best FPS.

Why is Foltest going into combat with a robe :lol: ? That guy wore full plate the last time he went onto the front line, did he suffer brain damage at the end of The Witcher?

Stop this Oner, my mind is too fragile to endure anime crap.

No worries Morgoth, this was originally a card game. :lol:

I like having good graphics just like any other guy, but seriously, I'm glad the times where you had to upgrade your Mainboard, CPU etc every 18 months are over.

 

Not sure why people are always complaining about consoles holding back PC games. I think current games like Crysis 2, Portal 2, Starcraft 2 etc. look amazing.

 

I mostly agree, it's just the amount of bad ports that get me down about PC gaming.

Maybe his plate armour got wrecked and he's stuck with maille, brigandine etc.?

Maybe he fears the English longbows.

Or maybe he isn't dumb and realises that he's better off with chainmail while prancing around the battlefield on foot.

Eurogamer preview

 

1) Looks like a lot of people are going to be happy

2) QTEs confirmed =]

Apparently so, dev mentioned that on the forums. Looks good though.

There's also another article at Eurogamer, where they are a bit less coy about console versions. Ie. say that they are coming (and after that x360 controller reveal, it's 0 surprise), but not when, how or if somebody's actually already working on it.

 

And now I realise that it would have been less typing, if I'd just bothered to go back and copy the link. Oh, well...

GT must have been running TW2 on a crappy PC because there are some frame rate issues.

DAT ATMOSPHERE. DAT GRAPHICS. DAT EVERYTHING.

 

The Eurogamer preview is pretty interesting since Alec Meer did not at all like The Witcher, if I recall. To see a very positive preview from him bodes well.

That the second one is different enough from the first to please those who didn't like the first one is a two edged sword.

He mainly got upset at the immaturity of teh bewbie cards, didn't he- and then spectacularly threw a gear about a captured/ tortured woman not wearing a top in the early TW2 preview?

Possible, but you might notice that 95 % of gameplay videos generally have "framerate issues" due to being played back as a low fps video. :lol:

Well that's one way of putting it. In the original footage the woman with the big fake pornstar boobs asks Geralt to turn around so she can cover herself despite the fact that she was just standing topless in front of him without a care in the world, but then the real reason she asks him to turn around is so the game can swap out the topless model with the clothed model. In the footage altered as a result of RPS gear throwing, the woman covers her more natural looking breasts after Geralt releases her before telling him to turn around.

But wasn't it the case that the said lady had hideously large mammaries because the dwarf was telling the story?

Stop confusing DA2 with TW2.
