Default Geralt's Face & Other misc Observations…

August 29th, 2011, 06:57
I followed the news releases for this game pretty avidly as it was being developed, and even up until the few weeks before release I remember seeing screenshots of Geralt and remarking how different he looked compared to TW1. Now that I'm playing the game, however, apart from the better graphics, his facial features are almost identical to the original. That's a good thing IMO, but for curiosity's sake, does anyone know the story behind what seemed to be a last minute retrofit?

Secondly, I also noticed that the voices for Iorveth and the Kingslayer are totally different from how they sounded in the pre-release trailers. I'm speaking of the trailer that shows the two characters meeting in the cave, and one memorable line from Iorveth "King or beggar, what's the difference?"
Now the Kingslayer sounds like a country bumpkin from the middle of America… the first time I heard him speak I almost laughed! Iorveth isn't quite as bad, but compared to the trailer it's not good.
Anyone notice the same thing, and/or know the reasons behind it? Or am I just high on Fisstech?
