The Witcher: Enhanced Edition in September

The Official Witcher Website has word that the release of the Enhanced Edition of CD Projekt's action/RPG is due in September. When a delay was announced in April (story) a new date was promised within days, but while that did not come to pass, the date has now been revealed:

CD Projekt RED would like to announce that the release date of The Witcher Enhanced Edition has been finally set. Consequently, the vastly improved edition of the acclaimed CD Projekt RED’s magnum opus has been set for the first half of September 2008. Setting the release date for September results from the requirement of polishing all ten language versions and releasing The Witcher Enhanced Edition in all languages at the same time. The Enhanced Edition by itself will be a deluxe one, containing a lot of additional content not available in the basic version of the game.

The exclusive edition of The Witcher apart from the game dvd will also consist of a video dvd, a bonus materials dvd (among all D’jinni the adventure editor and 2 official adventures “The price of neutrality” and “Side effect”), the game soundtrack as well as a music cd with music inspired by the game. The new content and improvements will be available to registered users of the game free-of-charge.

I hear good things about this one, but I just cannot bring myself to buy it.

The initial bug reports and some of the more lukewarm reviews turned me off of it originally (I wasn't in the mood to find the diamond in the rough.) However, noting some patches and the generally positive comments from people, I downloaded and installed the demo about a month ago.

But there were still too many rough edges for me to care. And I don't know if it was a particularly terrible demo build, but it did not make me care about the game at all. It really felt like cutscene and cutscene with little moments of banal "clickfest" combat. I'm hoping they really screwed up the demo and tried to shove too many things into it, but I did not really feel like I was playing a game, much less a RPG.

There were lots of other polish or low budget moments, too, but the initial impression of not controlling my character just turned me off.
Blah blah combat click combat...blah blah blah...
Dont' ask me why, but I've been going back through all my sh*t games and working on finishing them. That's why I recently beat S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and I'm actually working on that joke Gothic 3. With the crap I'm currently putting up with, I just don't have the drive to put up with another "rough" game (though I concede, from general opinions, there is probably more of a game to be had here than with the others.)

Having three loading screens while positing this :o,

I'm looking for some alien toilet to park my bricks; who's first?
I love you, mom.
