Default RPGWatch Feature: Inside The Witcher, Part 1

The combat system is why the game looks a lot to me like a top-down Gothic. Good role-playing nuts and bolts with somewhat twitchy combat. Beats the hell out of mindless boring clicking.

Thats good news then. The game sounds really great in all other aspects too. This sure is getting to be a good year for gaming. Ive bought a metric ton of good PC/PS2 games and they still keep coming. I really need to raise my standards again soon if this doesnt stop.

Nicely done, Dhruin!

Aurora Engine looks great with their work, it's too bad about the NO jumping and forced paths/trails but honestly I don't see how they could have gotten around that, so it's not totally unexpected.
Certainly glad to hear the translation better than average and still think they could reach a broader audience by including a choice of Auto Chaining for those not interested in Hack & Slash, style fighting.

It will be nice to play a new RPG IP, with real world consequences and not some bethesda hack job.

So far I think CD Projekt's biggest mistake was tying long term quest and consequences to some sort of stand against Saving and Loading.
It's a no win for them, since there is nothing that requires the use of Saving and Loading other than Personal Need, Buggy States and Poor Designs.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

I guess they wanted simply make your choices more important This is the point, not saving the game. It is just supposed to be more like in real life.

What's the deal on an English language CE? It seems pretty clear there won't be an NA one, but less clear on the UK and Aussie front. Does anyone have definitive info on if there will be one and, if so, where we can get it and what will be in it?

Thanks, woges.

Hmmm… looks like they took out half the cool stuff from the Polish version. Does anyone know for sure if the map will be in the regular version? If so, I'll just go with that. International, of course, as I hate the idea that the game's being altered for the puritanical NA market…
