Finished Witcher 1 - interesting story.  I've now begun Witcher 2.  Is it me or is that game's interface extraordinarily non intuitive?  I'm constantly on pause to look for which button does what.  The movements are erratic, there's hardly any hovering so I'm missing a lot of loot...  And relying on keyboard commands is annoying as hell!

Got a copy of it with my new graphics card, but I only got halfway through the first one and haven't even launched the second one sitting in my steam inventory.   :hmm:

Found what the problem is, to quote a reviewer:

"This isn't a PC game, this a console game with PC graphics."

When I'm told in a silly fist fight to press A - and I get smashed when I press A - there's a problem.  Needless to say, I won't be wasting money on Witcher 3.  Thank the Gods the 1st & 2nd games were only 5$ altogether.

You are such a bitter drama queen some time. You never merely dislike a game or say a game is not your cup of tea - you hate it with the intensity of a million stars. If you approach all things in your life that way, no wonder you are so miserable.

I'm excited. Reportedly, the i-3 3220 does a great job, particularly when paired with a good graphics card, which I have. It's been preloaded for a week. Cannot wait to try it today.

Pretty good so far. A lot more intuitive than Witcher 2.

I gots it. Another work colleague got it at 11 p.m. last night. The thing is a big deal in Poland. Apparently it sold one million copies in pre-order, which means the developer already got double return on all the money invested in the game (including the promotion).

Make it 1.5 million in pre-order. And some people, like me, simply bought it off a shop stall.

Wait you can buy games on shop stalls? I guess this is a console version?

I experienced one crash; the game autosaves after most game events and area transitions (but no loading times), so it wasn't devastating.

My specs: i-3 3220 Ivy Bridge with nvidia 760 GTX, 16 GB RAM. Medium detail on everything, LOD off, 1080. No appreciable slowdown. Very fluid gameplay (camera/mouse sensitivity is a little high).

Yes, although Poland also has PC version being sold on shop stalls. I guess we are a bit behind plus it's a Polish game so you can buy it everywhere here.

It's downloading now. Heh, hope I can get through the tutorial this time without getting fried over and over by a dragon. What's it this time?  :lol:

I'm loving it so far. I really like the world building - very atmospheric. Especially the forests. Combat and the RPG elements are also very well done IMO. So far it's giving me the same vibe I got when playing Skyrim for the first time.

Riding around on my horse in the beautiful countryside also reminds me of Red Dead Redemption.
