The Witcher 2 explains itself

Even though the console release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is getting more and more unlikely, we cannot resist showing you this new dev diary of what will certainly be one of the best RPG to come in 2011.

Couldn't finish first one despite fantastic graphics and great atmosphere overall, hopefully they'll change gameplay in next one so it didn't resemble original a slightest bit.
Also wish devs learned to friggin' make characters eye pupils move finally plzkkthxbye.

Looks great; here is hoping the combat does not suck as bad as the first.

I don't think I could be more excited for this game. I would love to see more about the gameplay. The graphics and animations are clearly superb, but I wanna know how they've improved the actual game.

Have i missed something, why is it more unlikely on consoles. They've never said they're not doing it, just not developing it alongside the PC version. I imagine, someone like Gearbox will port from the PC to the consoles.

Yeah, this game looks to turn out pretty damn cool. I just hope it delivers. Seeing as how the first game was pretty damn sweet i think this will be as well. Cool engine, based on good written material and developers that seemingly know how to make a fairly engaging RPG.

I think at this point it will all game down to sales. If it does extremely well on PC it will most likely be ported to consoles. Thankfully, it's being published by a bigger and more well funded company like Bandai Namco.

haha its going to bomb on PC 100%. The first one wasn't that big of a seller anyway and its going to be pirated to hell and back cause its a single player game. And Namco's marketing sucks! They could even get Tekken 6 to appear on the top 10 charts and more recently they did a poor job marketing Enslaved.

Personally I am looking forward to Dragon Age 2 instead of this, the first Witcher had way too much back tracking IMO and it was very poorly paced. Not sure if want :/

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but i don't see him as THE drake. and so i'd rather they get someone else to do that. (28 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog you don't need to see the same actor take on the role and grow up and age with it. in fact i'd rather they not do that. i can see tom holland as origins, U3 street urchin drake (29 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: depends entirely how they tackled it. i could totally see a movie situation where a young drake is being played by holland and an older drake being played by fillion. (32 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: He's a bit too old to start a possible movie franchise. I'd rather see a fairly young and good actor. On the other hand, game movies.... (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: His character in P&R was too unbelievable? So Nic'sk, Aubrey's, Aziz's,...characters were believable in comparison? (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog He really should have been Drake in movies back when firefly went down the drain. He was a good age and fitness level at that point. I'm interested to see how Tom Holland does in the role. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think Fillion is like a perfect Drake. But he'd need some serious training to do it full justice. Right now he's a bit too out of shape. But personality wise he nails it. (10 Hours ago)
