    Yes, it's new, made by CD-Projekt specifically for TW2 (expect buggs). It doesn't really matter for the graphics since TW wasn't using Aurora for visual effects, it had a different rendering engine. It was similar with NWN2 so I think KOTOR's level of detail is about maximum Aurora can handle on its own.

    Why do you lie? The engine was made for the Witcher 3, while TW2 would be a quick sequel made on Aurora again. They shitcanned 3, and ported all the work from TW2 on 3's engine.

    Does anyone like the blur in the background? I can't think of any reason to have such an effect turned on. (Simply put: all depth of field effects I've seen look really, really bad to me.)

    So basically it is a new engine, just not specifically made for TW2. Well, the shit looks great, that much is for sure. And I usually don't praise a game for looking good, unless it has that 'je ne sais quoi' factor. That village in the forest shot is fucking superb. I'd live there.

    Yes.

    Multi-platform too!

    (and yes it does look good, 't was a good move to step away from Aurora)

    It does look great, i don't know about the new Gerald style though. He looks a lot younger in this game, is this supposed to be a prequel?

    Nope. It's a direct sequel. I remember reading somewhere that the Geralt character model was subject to change. Hope they make him more like the old one. I agree that he looks a bit younger here.

    I prefer to have that on during cinematics or other dialog sequences. Outcast allowed that and it looked pretty good then. It was certainly annoying in Crysis when you tried to aim but the game insisted to leave your target blurred and the background all neat.

    EDIT: BLOBERT trolling not intended. Just trying to emphasize the blood and gore, sex, and racial tension that CDP:R is trying to jam down our throats. Fuck Off.

    Your ignore list.
    Did Geralt take a potion of rejuvenation or the game happens before TW1 or what?

    They removed some polish from his face. At least the easiness of the carding minigame will be justified with more than magic pheromones.

    Oddly enough, I've gone from hating the stereotypical "good guy" that saves the world, from wanting nothing more then having a clean cut good guy to replace these poor attempts at edgy, bad asses that don't care about anything yet save the world anyway. And now, here we have our character sporting some weeaboo haircut that shines too much.

    "Ultimately, however, you are no saint and you do not care to save the world" which is exactly why you're going to save the world! AGAIN!

    In the novels he dont want save the world or anything, he just want protect his people. The problem is that protect his people mean that have to get involved in political shit and lot of fights in a war...
