    Yeah, I was kinda lamed out by the insta-kill ability not working. I was already used to it not working on the bosses themselves, but their helpers? C'mon now.

    That Operator was actually fairly easy as a mage build. Could just spam fireballs to fill up adrenaline, and those Gargoyles were a piece of cake in slowdown mode.

    Lame-oid quen spammer!

    The boss fights really seem to depend on your build. The final story bosses were hilariously easy.

    Those were easy regardless of the build. Especially Letho, I was completely lamed out by the fact that he didn't change AT ALL compared to the previous boss fight. In fact, it was easier because there was so much space, I just ran back and set traps in his way, hilarious way to beat him.

    Then again, at least you do get the feeling that you get significantly stronger as you gain levels and better equipment. Could've been handled better, though.

    A porn knock off from popular media. Its relativ common and Evan Stone is in a lot of them. (Worked in a store with adult section where we had a lot of em)

    Dude is a hard worker. Looking up wikipedia he is in 1181 adult films.

    I'd suggest everyone who's already finished the game once and liked it to do so again, but doing things differently this time, especially at the end of chapter 1.
    Much changes.

    Yeah, I was gonna comment on that sometime. Beat the game twice (mostly for the sake of different skills, you COULD restart from mid-Chapter 1, technically). The second playthrough had 60~80% new content. Quite an interesting way to do a non-linear game - not exactly what I have in mind when someone says c&c, but definitely a welcome change from the usual railroad story games. This one's basically telling the same story twice from opposite angles.

    So, pretty much safe to say that most reviews of the game didn't do it justice, since it's too much to expect of reviewers to play though once all the way, let alone twice. Except in TW2 if you play through once, you've only seen half the game.

    Yeah :D Sasha Grey is pretty nice looking lass actually. I bet I would enjoy watching her ass pounded more.

    But on the side note - You should check original series OST. The only thing which was made very good. I even used some of these tracks on my PnP sessions because it fits so amazing into low fantasy settings.

    There is a whole soundtrack on this dudes channel.

    Any idea who made music for The Witcher games? Some tracks sounds similiar. Too bad G. Ciechowski is dead :(

    Soundtrack of The Witcher was composed by Adam Skorupa and Paweł Błaszczak.
    Soundtrack for the second one was composed by Adam Skorupa and Krzysztof Wierzynkiewicz. You have all that on The Witcher wiki.
    Amazing soundtracks.

    BWAHAHAHAHA :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    That trailer... So CONSOLETASTIC! For reference, compare with PC trailer.

    Not a surprise about the release, BTW, since they've said long ago that they're planning to try a console release after the PC version is done. I don't think it'll do too well on XBOX cause the game has too much reading and talking, and too little "press A to win". I also wonder whether the console will be able to run the engine smoothly without murdering the good visuals.

    I would not say TW2 has that much talking, probably not as much as New Vegas or recent Bioware games and they all sold very well on consoles (barring ''Dragon Age''2 but that's another issue entirely). I do agree that I see no way for a console to compete even with the low-end visuals, it's just too pretty.

    Also, it'll go head to head with Skyrim, and it'll lose.

    I've got to agree... the emphasis on violence, action and "epicness"... you have to wonder if some console players are going to be disappointed by all the time spent walking around and talking to people, because in practice I'd say less than 5% of The Witcher 2 is spend in combat.
