Can't dispute that reading… except that IMO it doesn't mesh with the themes and philosophical underpinnings of the game as well, and it is… well, unsatisfying.

Neither and both. Or, perhaps, that's the wrong question.

In traditional Buddhism, there's nothing particularly special about death. The thing you call "you" has no intrinsic existence; it's just…

Yo. Been a while.

Of course I don't know how MCA intended it, but I experienced the meaning of the ending rather differently.

Dropping in for a bit. Glad to see the Watch is maintaining its tradition of addressing issues of pressing importance in a spirit of free debate, diversity of viewpoints, and well-argued positions.

Did I miss the party? I missed the party. Oh well.

Judging by the debris, this one was better than the last one.

@dte: I don't think the nanny states are in much danger of implosion. The Danes just voted in a government that ran on a platform of higher taxes and better services, for example, and I don't see any…

Am I being paged?

I just took a quick peek here, and was surprised to see I and my big mouth are being discussed. Since the thread(s) are already a bit tangled and Zakhal specifically mentioned a new thread, here it…

Okay, delurk (again).

I finished it too. The game aspects were pretty good and faithful to the original, although, I thought, a bit monotonous. There wasn't as much variety as in the original, and…

I just finished my second play-through. I had previously started to replay The Witcher, but gave up in Chapter IV. I had entirely forgotten how much fetch-and-carry and relatively…

Original D&D: simple, workable, but lethal and limiting, and balanced by brute force (level caps for nonhumans etc). Good for straightforward hack-and-slash, not so good for long campaigns, or…

Right, final first impressions. Just finished the game. Not much to add to the previous. Unlike some here, I liked Chapter 3, and the nice, symmetrical way it tied up the themes that had come up…

More running commentary.

Nearing the end of Chapter 2 here. This one is weaker than Chapter 1, and there are definite problems with game balance. Too much awesome button. I'm developing Geralt on…

More live commentary. I just got out of Flotsam and did the prologue of the next bit. Still loving the hell out of it; just like TW1 only more so.

Which doesn't mean it's perfect. At this…

A bit LTTP, but hey, here are my first impressions — just through the prologue.

It's definitely The Witcher. While the combat is different, it's still close enough that it feels like the same…

Oh, it was howling like a banshee before I enabled that. Now it only does it when I'm playing The Witcher 2. Lovin' it so far; just out of the dungeon.

It's not as hard as I expected from the…

The 560Ti OC to 900 MHz.

Hit a weird and slightly scary snag updating my Windows, though. Intermittently, Windows seems to think it's pirated; I get that nasty "Unauthorized change to Windows"…
