Even at 720 this game really looks fantastic. This will actually slow time for me for the next 13 days.

Alchemy interview.  c'mon, CD Projekt, you're my only hope.  BiowarEA crapped all over Dragon Age 2 and seems to be chowing down on the ex-lax for Mass Effect 3, so Geralt-ichu, I choose you!

I just paid for my pre-order. Which free game should I pick?

I'm tempted to go for divine divinity, I already have gothic 2.

Given a choice between one of the divine divinty games or realms of arkania 2 or 3 which is best?

been thinking and I don't think I'm going to touch this until Friday evening, cause at that point I'll have 3 whole uninterrupted days to play and won't have to deal with looking at the clock at work wondering why time won't speed up so I can see what's next.

I tried to preorder the game at GoG, but my credit card keeps getting denied.  Has anyone else had this problem?  I've ordered several things from GoG before and never had any problems.  I even bought Return To Krondor from them about ten minutes before trying to buy TW2 and it worked fine.  The only thing I can think of is that the order is going directly through the publisher and not GoG, and the fact that they're located in Cyprus is causing my bank to deny the transaction.  It looks like I'll be getting the game on Steam instead frown

Never played the first as I've been pretty xbox focused the last few years... But this thread has convinced me to pick it up. Looking forward to it!

I thought you could pre-install games... no? It doesn't give me an option in Steam.

Steam isn't doing a pre-install for this one yet.  as for the original, it's only 5 bucks at GOG right now...

I imagine so.  It holds up pretty well plus even if you don't get to it before playing the sequel you'll probably want to see more of Geralt's adventures.  if you like the sequel that is.

Luckily the sale is on until the 23rd or 24th, so you'll have some time to decide.  still, I bet Morgul's slightly used soul that it'll be the best 5 bucks you spend this year.

Fortunately, no - You can get it off GoG's website, and even select your region yourself, thus saving the money you'd have to buy extra if you are outside the US.

Patching is done via launcher, so no need to worry about that, either.

Honestly, and I'm sure you know this, so I'm not sure why you are being this weird, but if you know where to look, every game the last 6 months has been available for pirates on the day, and often 2-3 days before release. The only thing this does, is removing the hassle that certain DRM can bring to the table.

I'm unsure how CD project can be hurt this, or are you just being a wiseguy and trying to be funny?

I'm being serious in hoping this doesn't turn out like World of Goo.  I'd rather them put DRM on the product and have it not work as an example to the bigger companies than not put DRM and give them an example to point to when coming up with wonderful new protection methods.  I know it sounds weird but it's the way I feel.

Play.com has it for 31 instead of GoG's and Steam's 45. I'd like to support the developers, but not THAT much. Also you get some extra in-game content if you buy through Play.

the pirates wouldn't have bought the game anyways. so, projected profits+0=?

this is a stupid argument. you don't cater to the pirates, you cater to your CUSTOMERS. any game can and will be cracked anyways. what's the difference between a day cracking and none? protip:there is no difference.

this didn't cost hundreds of millions to make, remember they are a Polish company. Plus they probably didn't blow half their budget on marketing like some other publishers do.
