You get the special edition at no extra cost if you pre-order the game.  I can't really complain about that.

Well that would do it.  I find it interesting that we keep getting conflicting information about this game it's scheduled for release in Japan three months from now.  It's something we talk about on the E3 podcast (shameless plug, I know).

Where did you read that the strategy guide was download only?  I thought the soundtrack was the only thing that had to be downloaded.

And holy shit IA!  How long did that platinum take you?

I'll be picking it up for sure.  Really looking forward to this title.

I didn't have too many problems with the PC controls, but it is a little awkward at first.  The game is more defense focused than I figured, so I think the controls have been built with that in mind.  This isn't Diablo where you just rend armies asunder with powerful spells and attacks.  This is more deliberate and paced.  Honestly, I was surprised by the demo and enjoyed it quite a bit.  Whether or not that gameplay can hold up for twenty hours is another story.

I think Stephen and I would talk Demon's Souls to death.  It will be fun to compare the two games once we hit the release of Dark Souls.

All great points, infernalism.  Women play a significant role in Witcher 2, so I don't really see where the misogyny argument is coming from.  I really want to read the books, but only two of them have been published in English.  It's a real bummer.

I think we were really careful to avoid spoilers, but I totally respect that some people don't want to know anything about the game going in.  I would say beat the game once and then listen to the podcast.

I gave the misogyny thing a lot of thought, and I don't think it's really an issue in the game.  I find it very similar to Game of Thrones, actually.  This is a world that is steeped in medieval lore, but the women aren't actively pushed aside in favor of the male characters.  The female characters in Witcher 2 that have an actual point in the story are well fleshed out and strong.  Sure, there are prostitutes and whores wandering around, and one character is a bit too eager to get in Geralt's pants, but I found the game to be much more progressive in its attitude towards women than the first game.  Nothing made me uncomfortable or came across as cheap and tawdry.  I don't see any serious misogyny going on, but I'm sure others would disagree. 

In other news, we will be recording the E3 podcast this evening, so we should have it up sometime this weekend.

Thanks for the input, infernalism.  I've looked into a couple of those mods that you've pointed out, and they do seem to improve the game quite a bit.  It will be interesting to see if CD Projekt actually implements them at some point.  It's also pretty exciting to see a fan of the show from Poland!  We're international, baby!!

Sorry for the double post, but our Witcher 2 podcast is up on the RSS feed and iTunes.  Hope y'all enjoy!

Christmas may be coming early...

We'll see, John.  I doubt this series still has a core following, but I'm okay with being surprised.

The $250 price point is almost insane.  I think Sony is willing to take a hit on each Vita in order to bridge the gap with 3DS.  At least they aren't making the same mistakes twice.  I will be picking one of those suckers up for sure!

Tomb Raider looked interesting, though they need to go back and cut down on Lara's screams and yelps.  It just sounded excessive and awkward. 
389  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2011 on: June 06, 2011, 01:45:43 PM
Jesus, are they going to announce any games of merit besides Halo 4?  At least Mass Effect 3 with Kinect voice was kinda cool.  I mean, it's not like games were doing that back in 2001 or anything.  Oh wait...
390  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2011 on: June 06, 2011, 01:40:32 PM
I missed the Tomb Raider opening video, and that seems to be the only thing of any interest to me.  Microsoft may have switched places with Nintendo this E3.  Are these Kinect games even selling?  What is this on-rails shit?!
