Care to elaborate? I haven't been following this game much though I know it's supposed to be multiplatform.
First, the devs want to "enhance" bossfights with Quick Time Events.
Second, they want to "streamline" the combat and make it faster, less tactical, more simple button smashing.
Third, on the latest preview event, the devs showed parts of the game using a 360 controller, which is the main reason, why the interface and the gameplay has to be simplified and dumbed down. Not that console owners are dumb, but devs are too lazy to build two versions of the game, publishers to greedy to invest building two versions of the game.

TW2 will become "Invisible War 2" all over again!

Am i pissed? Hell, yes i am!

I really can not wait for this game. The first one was the most refreshing PC game I have played in years with the loads of watered down console ports pouring on the PC gaming scene.
Then you would like to know, that The Witcher 2 is probably to become a watered down console port. There are several previews, which indicate nothing good for the PC crowd.

Why? Because it does not interest me, right now?

No, really. It might be a nice game, but i am STUFFED with games i bought and want to play. There is no need for new games for months ahead. Perhaps even until the end of the year.

Yes, I understand what you mean. I consider a comfortable game a boring one. I like to feel suspense and fear in a game.
As you wish. But i wish for a simple button in the games options menu: Savepoints [On/Off]

Everybody is happy!

It's human nature to take the easy path.
A free save system doesnt make a game easier. Only more comfortable

A well developed check point or infrequent save system is good for a challenge.
Modern video game myths. Today: Savepoints make a game more challenging.

No. They don't. Savepoints have their origin in the sparse and expensive memory storage of early console generations. The games had to be build around that restriction. "Challenge" comes only from the obstacles, the player has to overcome, like a hard boss monster or a tricky jump combination.

Today, savepoints serve only one point. Extend play time, because the game itself is a) too easy because of features like auto-heal or b) its too short, because there was not enough budget for proper content.

Quicksave or free saving is nothing more than a courtesy to the player: "Here, play as YOU like it. Save, when you like and where you like. Or don't. Its YOUR choice!"

I feel with you, brother!

"Overall, the team wants the player to stay in the events surrounding him and experience the tension indefinitely."

When i wanted to do that, i typed in a cheat code and made myself invincible. Nowadays, i do not need cheat codes anymore. I just sit back and let the game play itself, myself being half drunk and half asleep and suddenly, the end credits are rolling and i finally can go to bed. Oh yes, i already can experience the tension indefininetly ...

Horray to modern games!! No more need for watching crappy TV! Just sit back and watch some crappy game!

One can hope, anyway.
Hope alone does not bring gaming fun on MY table

And i quit "hoping". There is no hope concerning games. This is an industry, where games are being build according to target group analysis and feature comparison charts. Love and compassion has left this industry for good. There is a reason, why stupid, cheap, primitive, little indie games slowly gain more interest: They may not look pretty, but they are fun!

Agreed. They are hardly a small company anymore and Steam has grown into the biggest part of their business so TWO patch guys wouldnt be too much to ask
TWO??? Are you out of your mind? Whats next? Free beer delivery for every fifth Steam purchase?

We don't know why Steam is taking so long to update its version of the game
But we do. The patch guy at Valve is on vacation or ill.

That's why you're supposed to kill the Hunters *before* launching a ball at a Stalker
Which is good strategy for the first two attack waves, but the third one has way too many hunters and striders for my liking. Wasted too much time killing them (and aquiring new mines from the last undestroyed mine dispenser), the last surviving strider every time walked unharmed to the main base. But console commands can solve that mission design problem easily

If by wide-open you mean "there are three places where they will attack", and by fending off attacks you mean "Use a stupid carnival mechanism to attach bombs to a strider with your gravity gun, with its aim being so fucked you'll hardly ever hit anything, and while 877 billion Seekers (IIRC) are continuously destroying that ball the very fucking MILLISECOND it's attached to the strider without somehow miraculously blowing it up, AND being able to carry one ball at a time on your buggy, where you have to go into a house, grab it, put it on the buggy, release it, get into the buggy, drive somewhere, get out, grab the ball, shoot it at the strider, watch it get blown up by the seekers, swear, get back in the buggy, go back to the house, get another ball, repeat ad nauseum", then yes. It was an awesome set piece.
Oh, and do not forget, that you have to drive all over the map to an undestroyed house with an intact mine dispenser, making the time limit even more frustrating. Oh, oh, and one more thing: Why are there dozens of complete idiots aka resistance fighters, if they do NOTHING but run around and get killed by hunters or striders?

For the most part i enjoyed Episode 2, played it about three or four times. But this final fight is horrible, horrible, horrible. Skipped it every time. Enjoyed the pathetic ending and since then i am waiting for the conclusion of the story line in my patented Valve Time Capsule.

Easily one of the best set pieces of the entire HL series.
That i dont deny. But playing it was a pain in the ass. After six or seven failed attemps in stopping the last strider in time, i just opened the console and loaded the final "cut-scene" map. And looking at the achievement stats for Episode 2, i was not the only one having major difficulties with the final fight.

auto-cover.
auto-move
auto-play! Just sit back on your couch and watch a movie ... that'll attract the masses! The Modern Warfare SP campaign proves that people do not want to play anymore. They just want to watch nice scripting events.

Those times are long gone. The hardware race has slowed down considerably, because all major titles are multiplattform, the limiting factor being the 360 hardware.

Except Fallout 3, Oblivion and ME2 are more like action adventure games than actual RPGs.
ME2 an action adventure with some heavy RPG elements? Yes.

Fallout 3/Oblivion? No, these are RPGs. Like Baldurs Gate or the Gothic series or Might&Magic. Not very good RPGs in my opinion (too much boring open world with too little consequences, not enough straight story and quest advancement) but Bethesda does make RPGs
