    My guess is the discussion will consist of: you won't be able to do it. I don't see how it would work given the overhaul of the abilities system.

    It'll probably just be story flags based on decisions you made in the first game.

    Yeah. Just reading the story flags from the save would not be hard to do. I hope there are some C&C if you do import your save. Would be awesome.

    Yeah, I have to prepare save. If inventory will be at least partialy imported, I need to gather some stuff. Diamonds, rubies, golden rings... Quality alkohol. What weapons? Hmm...
    To grind or not to grind.
    I have a bad feelings about that. I really do.

    What choices are there which would have an effect in Witcher 2? It has been a while since I played the first one, but from what I recall most of the choices were to do with minor characters. I suppose the ending might be quite important but I can't see much else.

    Mostly, shitload of characters being dead or alive. What consequences it can bring, it is up to an imagination of the authors. It can be fun, or bullshit. Or not there at all. We'll see.
    The entire blues eyes quest had no real consequences in the first game. Will they follow it?
    I remember, when trying to cure the werewolf, I half expected that he'll kill his whorish girlfriend one day, so I'll have to hunt him down anyway. It still can happen, in the sequel. Or, if you killed him, the girl can seek revenge.

    Is it recommended that you play the first game to get a better understanding of the second?

    This. Although, can anyone think of a game that has done C&C from save game imports in a satisfying way?

    Mass Effect 2, with things like Wrex being alive and the Liara romance (Shadow Broker DLC). It was also funnyhaving aliens being all pissy with me for letting the Council die.

    Hard to say, but I imagine the second one will stand on it's own regardless of bringing in savegames. If you want a better understanding of the game world, sure, give it a go. TW is a good game. Not a great RPG, but still a good game. There's also a wiki that gives all sorts of background info on Sapkowski's works, the games, the TV show, etc.

    This is one game I'll gladly replay. Felt like a goddamn chore with DA.

    Sarcasm? Really don't see the point in hording items for the sequel. Not as if stuff was scarce in the first game.

    Larping. Really, I'm at the end of ch.2 anyway. I was dinking my fifth beer, when it occured to me, that it can be fun, to assume that only my moving inventory will be imported, not the inkeeper's one, and figure out what should I hoard. They are bound to somehow reduce your money... Even if it will be ignored by the next game, it can be somewhat amusing in it's own right.

    Hopefully they'll allow you to pick some things at the beginning of TW2. If not, a save game editor won't take long to appear. It's what I used for Mass Effect 2.

    Maybe they'll implemet Q&A method from KOTOR2. Anyway if the story about war between Redania and Temeria being central plot is true all those imports will be cosmetic ala DA2. BTW playing ME2 without savegame from first part was most grimdarkish. I was too soft to kill Wrex or place this dichead ambassador into human council in my playthrou so darksideending becoming cannon was :incline: :smug:
