I can't think of a single thing they could include in the pack that my girlfriend wouldn't mock me for.

I'm embarrassingly excited about the game though. A dark, gritty single player game that focuses on story rather than bland open ended nonsense? Seems like years since I've played anything like that.

I would like a sword replica.

I'd like a sword, minus the replica bit.

Edit: What's the last option?

There are plenty of adventure games out there...

I added a T-shirt vote, but it's not looking good for the home team! :-/

How about a better sounding name?

I mentioned it in my App Programming class at University when explaining that the NWN Engine was used to make it. It got laughs.

I await the sequel announcement: The Warlocker.

Well me too... As long as the mature rating is not awarded because of any
silly seduce-a-wench minigames that is...

Story by Andrzej Sapkowski
...


Does that mean a new story included as a bonus or (more realistically) is it
simply mentioning that the series are based on Sapkowski's works ?

Just got my copy of the Last Wish btw (finally !).

Certainly it means its a bonus story (I dont know will it be in Witchers universe or not or will it be a new one or one of already available). All information I have posted is relevelat to CD Projects distribution. Will it be similar to Atari's i do not know. :(

About "Last Wish" dont hesitate to post your feelings about it, I am curious how it will be received in english speaking countries.

Sure thing, It (Last wish) will have to wait for a while though(untill I am done
with the 400+ remaining pages of Steven Erikson's Bonehunters).

The only thing I've read from Sapkowski thus far was "The maladie" which
I've found translated on the Net and his style (what I could see through
that translation that is) seems right up my alley so to speak...

Erikson...One of my favourite writers. He is only second to G.R.R. Martin. But still I have to get my hands on Bakker. Supposodly he is better than Erikson( or so I have heard).

JonNik
June 25th, 2007, 22:58
Cant say about Bakker (haven't tried him yet myself) but I can recommend Keyes
(Particularly the kingdoms of thorn and bone series) I think someone liking
the aforementioned 2 gentlemen (Erikson and Martin) will like that one too.
(perhaps because if you add Tad Williams you have my four favorite male
contemporary fantasy writers...)

Ok, back on Topic now :) That collectors edition should please all of you t-shirt
and amulet lovers... Its the Sapkowski story that interests me (Normal edition)...
although that artbook and bestiary sound nice too...

Another new informations concerning system requirements:
Pentium 4 2,8 GHz or equivalent AMD
1 GB RAM
nVidia GeForce 6600 128MB RAM or equivalent ATI

According to developers this spec should allow you to run game on medium details. Furthermore game code is undergoing optimisation so system requirements can and probably will change.

Also they have uneveiled price for Standard Edition(99PLN = 26 Euro) and Collectioners Edition(199PLN=around 53 Euro).

PS.
JonNik: Everything from Normal Edition is also included in Collectioners Edition.
