I have to say that after seeing those screenshots the game is hard to pass. I'm new at RPG's, just played ME2 and DA2 and I enjoyed both of them. The first play-through for each lasted about a week for me which is pretty good in my book.

Never played the first Witcher, but I'm probably going for the second. I'm tired of 4-6 hours FPS games and the 50-60$ price tag slapped on them.

16GB of hard drive space? Is this thing going to ship in 2 DVDs? That's beast or magical compression.

Well my amd 4400 and nvidia 8800 GT my finally find a game that kills me.

But I sure as heck am not upgrading just for one game. And as much as I am excited about it, recent RPGS are such a disapointment. It is really getting repetitive. More dialogue options to click through doesn't make a good rpg alone.

I loved the first Witcher however and confident this game will not totally suck like DA2 at least.

You should definitely get and play through the first one. If nothing else, the Witcher is a "different" game, lots of people love or hate it, not too many in the middle. Buying the first might tell you you hate the style and save a few bucks.

Also, the first one was AMAZING, as long as you have a real attention span. As for length, I think I spent about 80 hours in my first Witcher runthrough, and I definitely missed a lot.

Can't be worst then DA2,I'm looking foward to this game, however I just hope my PC can run it ,if not then I have to wait for BullDozer before I decide on CPU/Board for my new PC :) .
Can't be harder to run than DA2 either; Crysis is easier to run in comparison.

I'm looking forward to this, although I want to finish the first one before I do. About half way through at the moment but my desire to continue has sort of left as of late.

Does anyone know if the US version will be censored like the first?

I'd be a bit sour if they did it like the first game, where they release patches many months down the line to uncensor the game.

Where is everyone pre-ordering from?
I pre-ordered through Steam, just for the sake of having it on Steam and because I'm not a DRM stickler. However, the other best place to pre-order it would be through GOG.com, where it comes with absolutely no DRM whatsoever. Every other version, like on Steam, or boxed, will have some form of DRM.

GOG.com said:
Is The Witcher 2 really going to be completely DRM free? It's a brand-new game!
Yes. We will never sell our customers games with DRM and GOG.com is the one and only place to get The Witcher 2 without any form of DRM.

Thank God this releases soon. There is fuck-all to play right now, especially with modern FPS's taking less time to complete than a rough bowel movement.

What bizarre parallel universe do you live in where there is "fuck-all to play right now"?
The one where the last decent RPG released was Dragon Age 2, which lacked replay value. Go back 12 months and it's pretty much Dragon Age 2 and a handful of MMO's and DLC's.

The only thing else out right now that I'd pay full price for is Portal 2 and maybe Crysis 2. I guess if you're into strategy, Indie games and mediocre shooters you've got tons of selection.

Well, I'm excited. The downside is when Witcher2 comes out I won't have time anymore for World of Tanks! :)

D2D is having a 25% off promo on pre-order now so I can get Witcher 2 for 33.71. I wanted to get the DRM-free version from gog, but at this price it is really tempting. Decision decision....

Looks awesome! I'm kind of looking forward to getting done with TW1 so I can get on to TW2, although I wonder if I should do a vid card upgrade.

personally, i'm gonna go with gog.com so there's no DRM and CDProjekt gets as much $$ as possible, so they can keep making awesome games.
