Supposedly the combat in this game is actually kind of difficult for all of those concerned about consolitis or whatever.

Same here, and after you choose your game it sits on your "shelf" same as any other games you've bought so I imagine you can download it straight away.

You get the free game (and more goodies (6$ and 10$ coupon) if you pay in €) as soon as the pre-order payment is processed (with paypal = instantly)

You get an email with the various goodies listed there, and you can preload W2 too

I haven't. I plan on getting it now. I wasn't much in to RPGs back in the day so I missed out on a lot of good games.

Edit: Is the other game thing active now after paying, or does it become available when the game releases? I don't see a way to get Gothic 2 even though I paid for Witcher 2.

I chose Beyond Divinity as well - for some reason i completed Divine Divinity but never Beyond Divinity.. weirdness.

Mass Effect, especially the sequel... is way more action-adventure than RPG. IMO the gameplay makes a game an RPG, not fancy cutscenes and dialog trees.

BTW. Not sure if it's for all regions but along with pre-order I've been given a free game as well. You can choose from:
Beyond Divinity
Divine Divinity
Gothic 2: Gold Edition,
Realms of Arkania 1 + 2
Realms of Arkania 3

I finished Divine Divinity long ago and loved it so opted for Beyond Divinity. Great free gift I can used when traveling and want to play a bit on my laptop

Thats your problem. You think Mass Effect is a RPG. DA:O is a closer comparison to Witcher than Mass Effect is by a long shot.

I wasn't comparing any games to Witcher. I was just saying I am not a huge fan of the time frame this game takes place. I much prefer the futuristic settings like Mass Effect had for an RPG game.

I don't care how good or bad Mass Effect is in comparison to Witcher when it comes to RPG games, I was talking about space opera vs medieval times.

Still on the fence about this game. I never really got into RPG games other than the Mass Effect series. This one looks great but the medieval time frame just never managed to hold my attention long enough in previous games.

If you like mature/dark fantasy than don't hesitate a second.

There was first review published in a polish magazine (CD Action) and it got 9+/10. Apparently it's much better than the first one, which already was one of the best RPGs in the last few years.

Already pre-ordered via GOG and downloaded all I could
Another week to go...

So excited for this game. You can't beat DRM free and awesome all in one package. I really hope it's as good as the first one.

The Witcher made me interested in the English translated books which I have now read an eagerly anticipate more.

Everything CD Projekt has done has been PC gaming friendly. I don't feel bad about buying from them. They have created a lot of goodwill.

I created an account on GOG and preloaded the game. CD Projekt makes the most money when you buy it on GOG. And it's DRM free and you get a bunch of goodies.


The one thing I wish they allowed is the manual and guide and the other stuff was available right after paying. I would like to read the manual and maybe look at that extra stuff but unfortunately it unlocks at the same day as the game.
