Welcome to Librarium Online!
Anyone play it yet? I want to get it but I doubt my laptop can run it.....
I think I'm kind of in the same boat as you - most of my computing is done on a laptop that, while reasonable, isn't quite up to many modern games.
I only recently (well, a couple of months back) finished the first Witcher game, and while the end of that one certainly had me looking forward to the second, I don't think it's something I'll start any time soon.
Also, I stumbled across this, though I'm not sure how accurate it is;
Minimum System Requirements
* OS: Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
* CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or similar AMD
* RAM: 1 GB (XP) / 2 GB (Vista/7)
* HDD: 8 GB free disk space
* Graphics: 512 MB Graphics Memory
* Sound Card: DirectX 9 Compatible
* DirectX: Version 9.0c
Supported Graphics: Nvidia GF 8800 or similar ATI card
EDIT: Hey, how about that? I might just be able to squeeze it on, maybe...
The only that is lagging behind for me is my video card. My laptop is 2ish years old and it has a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650. Everything else is up to specs but that.
I don't have a problem running any of the games I play but the most technically taxing games I run are Star Craft 2 or Dawn of War 2: Retribution. No problems running Starcraft 2 but the occasional hiccup on DoW. I don't have the money to upgrade my laptop right now so I'm stuck for the moment.
Hmmmmmmmm. Actually I could see if my dad has spare computer parts lying around the house and make a desk top out of it. That could work.
I have played this game and i am enjoying it very much so it is fun to play it and i am really amazed about this game so you should also
checked it out.
The grapics aren't that demanding (as long as it doesn't rain), if you're willing to take some slight performance issues even a 2-3 year old machine can handle it. There's however the question why you'd want to - Witcher 2 is easily the worst big-budget rpg of 2011 - spare yourself the hassle, and go get Dragon Age2 (or wait for Skyrim).
The Silver Knights of Tor Adrac (He): 26/2/4
The Spears of Slaanesh (Woc): 7/2/5
Battlegroup Chalybso (GK): 7/3/3
Care to elaborate how its bad? It does the best story telling i've seen and not one side quest seemed to be meaningless. The combat ain't that bad either.
Look at the dates please...this thread has been resurrected twice already now, let it rest easy in its grave...
Definitely. I don't need this year old thread clogging up my view of all the other year old threads on this section of the forum.
But since we're on the subject, going to rent it this weekend (the xbox: enhanced edition one) as I've heard some good things about it as a Fantasy RPG with the only real negative comments being a little bit of clunkiness in combat and minor texture/animation problems both of which are solved simply by installing the game beforehand.
Hope you enjoy it as much as i am :]
It was alright, though I stopped early and moved on to my next game rental, Tales of Grace F, after a few days.
Having not played the first one, I was a bit upset when it turned out the bald guy in the intro turned out to be the bad guy and not the main character, but for the most part the game seemed pretty good, just didn't end up being not quite what I was looking for. I just really would have rather been that bald guy killing kings than Geralt.
That said, they did a real good job with the decision/consequence part of the game, with thing's possibly coming back to bite you down the road. And the combat system is fairly smart with the requirement of tactics and variety of skills to avoid getting overwhelmed.
...Also, the king seemed pretty nice to me (like remembering a common soldier from 4 years before, and giving him a long overdue promotion; or telling his kids he forgave their mother and they'd be a family again), why does everyone else insist he was an asshole? Even all my options on expressing my personal opinion of him weren't good options.
