Twitter posting by ATI about Witcher 2 hotfix driver including crossfire support:
http://twitter.com/#!/CatalystCreator

ATI needs to be on the ball more with developers. However, Witcher 2 has the Nvidia's "The way it's meant to be played" logo. But still.

Agreed, I'm super disappointed with these cards, the drivers are junk (every new game i've tried on them i've had issues) and they are so damn loud, gaming with headphones is a must.

I should have went with SLi'ed 570's instead. Live and learn I guess.
I don't agree with you. I'm not disappointed with my single 5850 at all. I don't have any issues in Witcher 2 that I can see. I don't think the drivers are junk and my card is not loud at all.

They don't have true 16:10 support. There are black bars. They don't have true 4:3 support either. They let you select 16:10 and 4:3 resolutions, but those resolutios aren't really taking up the entire screen like they are supposed to. Everything is really geared toward 16:9.

Also the fact that the control and graphics configuration is all outside of the game and the lack of a quickload function, kind of leave a bad console taste in my mouth. That's how console ports do things. It simply is a lot quicker to create an external program that just edits ini files quick and dirty, rather incorporating it into the game with nice graphics and nice menus.

The other quibble is that you have to be angled just right a lot of the time to search something or put out a torch or light a torch and it's needlessly difficult sometimes.

However these are pretty minor quibbles. But still should be mentioned in fairness. Otherwise the game is the cream of the crop.

P.S. Why the hell did they change Kingslayers voice from the videos that were released? The voice in the videos fit his look a lot better than this voice in the US version.

I think we are reminded that it's best to wait before playing a game until there are patches so you don't have to deal with frustration. Play something else in the meantime.

I'm apparently old school; I just CAN'T play an FPS view game without mouse inversion. I guess it's whatever you get used to. The standard a long time ago was what is now inverted, so newer gamers prefer the non-"flight control" style.
I used to be an inverted FPS player. But after a few years I realized that I had to switch and unlearn that because it's a bad habit to get into I realized. I don't use inverted mouse on the desktop, why should I use it for fps?

It was HELL trying to unlearn the inverted mouse controls it took a while but I did it. It's the gaming of equivalent of kicking a bad habit like smoking. Well okay, I might be overstating it a bit.

BTW, I have to admire the courage of all of you who have come out in this thread...
You can't even imagine the idea that heterosexuals would defend homosexuals and their rights, that is why you think people who defend them are "coming out." Unbelievable.

I really don't understand the drama over this. I have yet to read an article stating that Bioware is going to be forcing anyone to have a homosexual relationship. If such a relationship bothers you, offends you, sickens you, or whatever, just don't choose to have one. Problem solved.

For the rest of us, it gives us more options in a game genre that is all about personal choices. So it seems like a win-win.

Unless you are just looking for something to bitch about.
Or you are an ignorant bigot and evidence and reason cannot reach you.

Bah. You can't hotkey specific weapons and spells. I knew the radial menu would result in fewer hotkeys.
In video and language settings in the launcher you can set hotkeys for specific spells and other hotkeys.

In today’s politically correct society most heterosexuals are afraid to offer their honest opinion without being branded a homophobe.
The truth is, most straight men, even those who have gay friends or family, are physically sickened by the thought of gay sex. We see it as a perversion similar to bestiality or S&M. Personally, I have no problem with it unless it is in my face, whether that be on TV, videogames, or in those raunchy gay pride parades (many of whom would be arrested if they were straight). BTW, I used to live near San Francisco, and you’d be surprised how many closet conservatives there are there.

You don't understand. Just because you find something disgusting or the majority of people do, does not mean that it should be outlawed or hindered or whatever. Just because I find your opinion disgusting and ignorant does not mean that you should be barred from expressing it. You see how that's a two way street?

Sorry but "marriage" is between a man and a woman. Not two perverts. Guess next we will be seeing pedophiles parade for rights.



At any rate, not supporting Bioware anymore with my hard earned cash if they are going to cater to the lowest common denominator of society (though I admit there were reasons to ditch Bioware previously that have nothing to do with "gays").
Sex between two consenting adults is exactly like sex between an adult and child. Obviously. Great false equivocation you've got there.

Will anyone outside San Francisco buy Mass Effect 3 because of gay characters? Really? Ok, maybe a few wingnuts.

However, will the hype over gay characters turn off many heterosexuals? Possibly... probably not worth the risk.

While I'm not a homophobe, I almost skipped the wonderful GTA4 Gay Tony expansion because of the name.

You kind of sound like one though.

were i come from gay people have fought for there right to get married , now they can , but nono , : Its not good enough , now they demand to get married in a church , and so they just keep going on
Oh please. Who wants to be married at a church who teaches that gay people are going to hell to be tortured forever? Yeah gay people really want to be married somewhere they are despised. Think about it for 5 seconds. Do you want to go somewhere you are despised? Didn't think so. Why would you think that gay people do? Rational thought isn't your forte.

I guess I'm confused.

Can someone please explain to me what all the hullabaloo is about?

I was kind of wondering the same thing, especially since every Bioware game in recent memory has allowed for this, but it seems like aside from a couple of people everyone is just talking at length and mostly agreeing that there's not much reason to argue anyway

In a market place of ideas, people can spout their bigotry. And bigotry can be opposed by others, even on the Internet on forums like this one.

That was easy. To show how irrational your viewpoint is, I substituted the word "gay" for the word "straight". I think my point has been made.

The highly narcissistic "gay" social agenda has completely ruined so many other forms of entertainment--I pray it not be allowed to ruin gaming as well. I favor putting them all back into the closet inside games and lead-lining the doors. The truth is guy, or gal, I don't care if you dig men or you dig women--just stay out of my game! If I want some of that agenda there are plenty of places on the Internet I can go to have my head dunked in that sort of propagandist drivel. I play games for the fun factor--if want lessons in politically correct sexual etiquette circa ~2011 I will certainly look elsewhere. Stay out of my games! Thanks.
But it's perfectly okay to have a heterosexual relationship in the game right? And of course it's even better if two hot girls go at it? Am I right?

The Duke is well known for his tolerance after all.
Duke is a walking bafoon stereotype. Also I never liked the word "tolerance." Tolerance implies superiority or belief one is right. I like coexistence.

How would you know how fun someone is to play with unless you use past games as a metric? Well my questions assumes you don't charge them for playing games, as in software as a service.
