Default TW2 - New gameplay footage of combat (among other things)

March 2nd, 2011, 06:28
At least it's new to me.

Didn't like the heavy metal inspired combat music though. I hope that's not in the final release of the game. Maybe it was just for the video. Hope so.

Looks very good, though I suppose I should consider playing The Witcher and completing it before this one releases…lol Been busy with other titles and just hadn't gotten around to it yet!

Saw this a little while ago over at GameGuru, it's definitely new footage afaik.

The music starting at 2:50 in the video is indeed horrible, but I'm pretty sure that was just for demo purposes. Other than the BGM, I thought the vid was great.

There´s also a set of new-ish videos on Gametrailers ("Questing Developer Walkthrough"), which shows similar things, but with some commentary and it shows combat with a lot less rolling and there are some blocks even.
The combat starts around 2:00 into the second part.
Some dialogue choices are rather spartan, hopefully a pre-beta thing.

And yeah, that metal track is dreadful and needs to be taken out.

Lol yes the "metal" track is plain boring, but quote the music and game aren't synchronized, it's music past over the game movie. Witcher 1 have been one of the very very rare game I play all along and let the music even if at lower level. Cut the music in game is fine for me, in general I felt it badly done even if the music if cool.

Just watched a trailer of the first boss fight and saw the qte's are part of the game. What happened to them being optional. I despise qte's if you miss one button you have to start all over again.

I'm amazed. This looks downright AWFUL. There's no way I'll be getting this.

I haven't finished the first - which I only bought due to it being SO cheap on one of those sales, but even after the super-extended-developer's cut-supremo-platinum edition, it just didn't grab me. I never found the combat to be very good and the UI was still so rough after so much time. Meh.

I'm currently playing Divinity 2: DKS and it looks miles better than this, IM(nsh)O.

Liked most of what i saw but the controls and qte's looked quite console like. We'll see I played the first one mostly for the choice and consequences anyway , but enjoyed many other aspects of it as well.
