[QUOTE=CabooseRvB;31790162]Insane? So no saves when you die?[/QUOTE] Insane difficulty in The Witcher 2 is what people these days call Ironman mode. One single death means you have to start from the very beginning. Dark Mode, which is coming with 2.0, will be as difficult as Insane but will allow you to resume your saves and some of the weapons, armours and (I think) locations/characters will be redesigned to fit the Dark Mode theme. :dance: That's what you call post-release support!

Can't wait though, I know I'll be replaying the Witcher 2 a few more times now.
Ugh, finally made it to Chapter 3 in TW1. ...do I ever leave Vizima?

Does anyone recommend reading the books ([url=http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Elves-Witcher-Andrzej-Sapkowski/dp/031602919X]this[/url] and [url=http://www.amazon.com/Last-Wish-Andrzej-Sapkowski/dp/0316029181]this[/url])? Coming from someone who liked TW2 and never played TW1.

Coming from someone who liked TW2 and never played TW1.[/QUOTE] Haven't read Blood of Elves, but The Last Wish is incredible.
Just finished the second game. Thinking about it, there are so many different ways that could go, and I don't see how they are going to be able to do a sequel. [sp]It worked out pretty well where all three endings of the first game pretty much had the same effect in the second, but I can't see this happening in the third unless they do some crazy stuff. I have only gotten one ending, but there are too many major plot points to work from.[/sp]
[QUOTE=Pepin;32242471][sp]I have only gotten one ending, but there are too many major plot points to work from.[/sp][/QUOTE] All the endings are pretty much presented the same with minor details changed.
[QUOTE=postmanX3;31852147]Haven't read Blood of Elves, but The Last Wish is incredible.[/QUOTE] Agreed, I fucking LOVED Last Wish. Blood of Elves is kinda underwhelming in comparison, though. Most of the focus is on Ciri. Also, I finally played through TW1. Took the neutral path and ported my save into TW2. I like how I even start out with the armor and weapons I had in the first game.

Looking awesome.
I wish the other novels were translated more quickly. Or I understood Polish.

If I read correctly there's meant to be a new CGI intro done by the guy who did the intro and end of credits clip for the Witcher 1. As I don't really intend on playing it again so soon and therefore don't intend on downloading the update would anyone be willing to upload the clip so I can see it? I would appreciate it and I'm sure many others would too.
Haven't played Witcher 2 since June. I really need to finish my first playthrough. :v: Amazing game. Glad I bought it. I just have to hone my skills in the arena once the patching finishes.

2.0 update is out on Steam now.
Does Dark Mode seem easier than Hard to anyone else?
Depends on how good at the game you are.
[QUOTE=PotatoArmada;32550269]Does Dark Mode seem easier than Hard to anyone else?[/QUOTE] dark mode makes the enemies more difficult but on the side it makes geralt much more lethal. i'm loving it atm and i'm especially loving the arena
