Thanks! Well, the ending wasn't great, but atleast it paves the way for more games in the series.

Yeah, but I'm sick of cliffhangers.  Just finish your stories, jesus.

But they did. The Witcher 2's story is finished - you finish the main plot and resolve any business involving Iorweth/Roche.

The amnesia plot is the series' driving pointt, the ending of 2 set everything up in such a way the third game will focus purely on that. It's understandable. You can't expect they'll just throw in the big guns for no reasons.

Jeez spoiler warnings! I figured I'd comment before the thread gets locked as YouTube spam.

But they did. The Witcher 2's story is finished - you find the Kingslayer, you resolve the Temerian crisis and the deal with Saskia.

The search for Yennefer and Ciri is the series' driving plot, the ending of 2 set everything up in such a way the third game will focus purely on that and Nilfgaard. It's understandable. You can't expect they'll just throw in the big guns for no reasons.

Jesus fuck! Use the hidden text feature before you ruin the game for other people!

I'll throw in a spoiler warning here which you clearly failed in doing.

This video shows the potion drinking animation. I thought they took that out for the 360 version?

Yeah they did, but I used that footage from the PC version since I needed relevant footage when talking about the "potion" aspect of the game.

I've rephrased them, but they aren't even spoilers.

Of course it's not complete. It's a game in a series that's at least a trilogy. It's normal plot progression. I'll explain, because you clearly fail to "get" it.
Not to mention that they are considering an expansion pack.

Right, whatever you say -- but they could have handled the ending a bit better nonetheless.

Sure, it's kind of abrupt, but I can't really figure out any other way than needless exposition and stating the obvious.

Right, maybe that's true.
 
At any rate, great game.

It still sucks, though that a new Witcher game probably isn't due for another four or more years..
