All Witchers are male. There are no female witchers in the fiction.

Then we wouldn't be forced to play a predetermined character whom already has a personality set in stone, where we are given the illusion we are making decisions.
There are no illusions of making decisions. You are making decisions that affect the plot. Did you see how in the movie the female with the red hair Triss and the dwarf Zoltan tell the story of Geralt escaping from the dungeon differently and it plays out in the video? That's not an illusion.

Indeed. Besides, I'm completely cool with playing Geralt. Did you even play the first game? Geralt has amnesia, so it's basically a fresh start anyway.

I haven't read the books... but is there a reason that most girls he shares a bed (or alley) with are redheads?

Illusion of choice about decisions since we are deciding for Geralt and not Role Playing our created toon. Who is say, wondering in this game world as a starting Witcher on an adventure looking for or to aid Geralt OR even just as a Witcher in the World.

All they were doing in the video, she was giving her description of escape if you leave from main exit and he was giving description if you leave through the dungeon. Just because you can choose to go path A or path B doesn't take away the fact your playing a predetermined character not one you created.

q[All Witchers are male. There are no female witchers in the fiction. Well, too bad for the narrow minded fiction, if purists (the reason this world is so limited and crippled) can't take pain of having female Witchers then Witches. Wow, that was damn hard overcome.

No choice about Gender, looks, personality or to define your toon outside Geralt.

Defiantly getting this on day one and sure it will be a good game, it's just there's a much better game possible here.

Hrm, that looks inordinately awesome. I need to get around to finishing the first Witcher still, the combat in the first game just got too boring after awhile.

Also, yeah, what exactly is up with the huge delay translating the novels? They were written(original polish) like 15 years ago. Come on, whoever is in charge of that!

PS. Novels > The Witcher 1, discuss.

Works are generally translated because of demand. My guess is that there was no English demand for the Geralt books prior to the publication of the game.

You would be wrong. The book deals have already been done (for the first three books in the trilogy) in advance. So there is no justifiable reason for the wait. The company I work for does publishing and distribution (among other things) in my country and these books sell like hotcakes. No one has any idea why Gollancz is releasing these books so far apart, least of all the people at Gollancz. I think the translation would be at least part of the reason.

It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)

The original Witcher is hardly an RPG, its basically an action adventure game with RPG elements.

You play a predetermined character, with a predetermined class. Like someone already mentioned the combat is pretty much set in stone. Im not saying its a bad game, but a cRPG it is not.

All Witchers are male. There are no female witchers in the fiction.

Hey man, the second (and last for now) English translated book gives the impression that Ciri might become a Witcher still. Don't you spoil it for me!

There's a great world and setting within The Witcher, my biggest disappointment is we are FORCED to play Geralt. I would much rather RP a Witcher from scratch, whom was seeking Geralt.

If that were the case all these stories would still matter and be relevant BUT we could play OUR Witcher male OR female who sought Geralt for some specific purpose, wouldn't really matter. To seek his add, bring him back to life Ala pre The Witcher, it would be a parallel story. Then we wouldn't be forced to play a predetermined character whom already has a personality set in stone, where we are given the illusion we are making decisions.

THEN WE COULD.

Despite my disappointment over the lost opportunity of really RPing in the Wither World, looking forward seeing what's new with all the Characters, other than Geralt.

After reading the first 2 translated books (after not reading any books for a long time) I'm finding myself more excited for the next translation but that's not until April 2011!

I really like this trailer. Good story, great atmosphere and characterization, visceral swordplay. Excellent ad for the game, really makes me want to buy it.
