It might change history. We really pride ourselves on the moral ambiguity and choices you make. We don’t put them in the game because we have to have ten choices per chapter, we just think that they naturally fit in the story that we’ve created. And the difference in The Witcher 2 is that the world is going to change a lot more in the second part depending on your choices. Places will look really, really different due to your actions in previous chapters.”

    The first game had little moral ambiguity for me, slaughtering those fucking hippy quasi-alquaeda elves was satisfying.

    Your ignore list.
    Like I said previously, any villain from TW2 would make Commander Shepard piss his pants by just glaring at him.

    Among TW2's system requirements, I'm betting it will also include Player Requirements:

    -Testosterone Levels > X;
    -A beard;
    -Having taken the virginity of at least 5 women;
    -TW2 also requires the player to be sweaty while playing, no shirts;

    Typical RPG Player:

    I remember TW videos where they were talking about how 4 choices that you'll get at once will lead to 4 different outcomes that will affect the world deeply. And the final result was all about choosing the armour colour on the guys fighting alongside you (and what was shown into the video never made it into the actual game lol)
    You gotta believe these guys now

    And as I take it the shitty QTE combat is in again?

    Yes and it will become even more prominent in the gameplay. I don't have the press release at hand atm, but afaik they have stated somewhere that bossfights will be entirely done by QTEs.

    What's worse is that CDP:R actually released a video demonstration of something that took place at Caer Morwen (sp?) with everything programmed and set. Then - it never showed up. Now we're supposed to trust merely their word? Right.

    There's a game called Facebook, but it's kind of hard. There is another one called MySpace, with the catchy, "MySpace to My Place" phrase. ;)

    Hope they actually deliver it this time as opposed to a couple of hand drawn cut scene stills.
