I'd totally play through The Witcher again for better stability, achievement points, and new content. F-yeah!

Posted by SaucySala

The Witcher was definitely an ambitious project, all though I wish it were more polished on the PC. All though I heard the re-release fixed a bunch of the bugs.

Posted by cluto

That was special.

Not coming to the wii?  What?!?!?!

Posted by Weltal

New adventure or a re-release of the previous one?

Posted by Bertmasta

i always wanted to play this, my laptop could not run it, now i can play it

Posted by Terrellism

My computer cost around $800 and it can barely run Halo 1 PC, even with all the specs turned down low which is ridiculous. So I'm glad my $300 Xbox 360 will allow me to play this game. I was interested in the other ones. Now I can finally play it.

I'm not here to say PC gaming is a dying breed like all the other forum trolls, but come on, If I purchase a $800 PC by now and it can't run a 7 year old game then actually yes, I would say PC Gaming is slowly dying.

It's just way too expensive, and with the economy as it is, it's really not an option any more. Look, find me a $500 PC that can run a game such as Call of Duty 4 and you may have me and all the other gamers that have jumped the PC's ship. Because until then, I'll be playing the same triple A games that you play with a smooth frame rate and for a sweet-sweet price of $300.

Some of you hardcore PC players will say that console game play is too slow. Well what if Microsoft were to allow you to use a keyboard and mouse in-game. Would you still feel so passionately about PC gaming?

Yeah, they would announce this the day I go and pick it up for the PC.

i didnt get the pc version because i dont want fucking drm on my machine. so this is cool. better have the naked porno titty cards though.

The trailer looks more like a LARPer camping.

On a serious note, I've been hoping a port of the game would happen.  While the date is a bit far off, and will most likely be delayed, I can now enjoy the game without the inane controls and sys reqs the PC had.

I'll give that a try

Woah, man i got a computer like 5 years ago, for 500$, and even i can play halo 1 with the specs all the way up. I dont know who you bought that 800$ computer from but,,,you got jacked to hell on the price.
Posted by IncredibleBulk92

I'd love to play the witcher actually.  It wasn't really worth playing on my low-spec PC with all the bugs and stuff.

That trailer was pretty cool as far as trailers go these days, I'm pretty sure it has zero correlation with the actual gameplay but the video was good
Posted by Scooper

I was interested in the PC version when it came out but after I heard how buggy and all that it was I passed, I'd be willing to give it another go.

Posted by insanejedi

Wow that CG trailer looks better than even Blizzard's CG.

Posted by JackiJinx

Well, that's great, especially since I just bought it for PC =/

Posted by BinaryDragon

I know I shouldn't judge a game by it's cover, but that totally rocked.

Also anyone else recognize the body movement of the guy they motion captured? I think it might be Richard Ryan ( the guy on one of the Fable videos, the fight expert who came in to demonstrate ). I think it's him.

I got it from a guy called Wal-Mart. The sad thing is I should be able to walk into store and every computer there above $500 should be able to run a game that can be played on PS3 or Xbox 360, im sorry but that's the way it should be. Im all for PC gaming but its a f-ing scam

I'm just here to echo the sentiment of everyone else with a shitty PC that couldn't play the game, despite wanting to, and how I'm excited at the idea of playing it on a console.

DUDE MY COMPUTER COST AROUND 450 AND GUESS WHAT I CAN PLAY CALL OF DUTY WORLD AT WAR AND CRYSIS AND ALL THE LATEST GAMES SO I HONESTLY THINK YOU GOT RIPPED OFF (I'M A PC GAMING FAN )

The Witcher rocks!  The book isn't bad either.

Edited by Rio

Definitely a buy for me, The Witcher is a fantastic RPG.  

Edit: a computer does a lot more than play games, some of you seem to take pc pricing out of context.
a computer that costs near the same as a gaming console does not NEED to be able to run the same games, that makes no sense.

Posted by breton

@Trojan_Impala - Because you're a dumbass who bought an overpriced PC from Wal-Mart (of all fucking places) means it's dying or a scam? Research what you're purchasing next time.. that goes for all products.

Posted by Oni

If you buy a 800 dollar PC that can't run Halo you are doing it WRONG. 800$ will get you a PC that will run Crysis on high settings easily. I don't know what to tell you, you should research what you buy.

Ugh...I've barely started Witcher Enhanced and this comes out.  =(

Posted by TekZero

This just convinced me to pick up the PC version.

Posted by Jimbo

I'd put The Witcher in my Top 5 games of all time, no question.  Excellent story, excellent universe and solid combat (for an rpg). 

Will it be well received by your mass-market console gamer?  I'm not convinced it will be.  This leads me to worry that they may do something rash like turn it into a sub-par hack n' slash mess that loosely keeps the story of the PC version.  Please tell me this won't happen.

"The animation looked weird on his body type. Old dudes with white hair don't move like that."

AHAHAHAH! Oh my god..That was hilarious.. You really don't know what you talking about do you?

But now i have to install my Enhanced Edition and play it again.. Dam you Giant Bomb..Dam you...

Posted by Media_Master

Heard nothing but good things about the original, look forward to this!

Posted by sublime90

awesome, now i can finally play this game!

Posted by ElectricHaggis

Awesome news.  I really wanted to play the original when it came out on PC but my computer had no hope of running it.

Posted by thomasonfa

That was sweet. However, the dude had some strange nips.

Posted by ch3burashka

Looks cool, but the CG is quite misleading. Gives me a feeling that the actual gameplay isn't quite good enough to be shown in the trailer.

Edited by Shadowsquire

@Trojan_Impala - Maybe instead of being an idiot and buying a computer from WalMart, you could be like the rest of us that play PC games and either be smart and go somewhere where the employees actually know how to use a computer or be even smarter by going somewhere like NCIX.com and buy the parts seperately. For about $800 i could build myself a computer that could play crysis on high settings. PC gaming isn't dying. It's just people don't know where to get a decent computer without getting ripped off like you.

LOL, you should know better than to assume that white hair on a fantasy character doesn't make them old
Geralt is like 30 and no longer ages

@Trojan_Impala
Why should every PC in a store priced for $500 be able to run a game that can be played on the PS3/360? That makes absolutely no sense, not to mention how can you expect a store like Walmart, the cheap bin of merchandise, to carry a decent $500 PC?

Here is your $500 PC that can run COD4, yes you have to put it together. I'm sorry if this bothers you, but with an industry that is comprised of an unimaginable number of parts to expect one company to be able to build an entire PC that can compete on a level with companies that specialize in individual pieces is less than realistic.

yea. you shouldn't ever buy anything like that  from walmart man. atleast now you know.
Posted by TekZero

I'll be getting this for the PC.  Right after I finish NWN.. or even sometime before.

I got a thing about getting collector's (enhanced) editions.  And the enhanced edition is so affordable.  I'm hoping I'm getting decent money for Christmas..  Although I'll prolly just get gift cards.
