I am dying to get my hands on this game. Its been so long since I've played an RPG that really sucked me in.

Requirements/recommendations seems to be where I would expect.

Im not seeing anything hig from the recommended specs... 2GB should always be the recommended. Other then that the GPU and CPU requiremends are pretty normal.

Meh, GPU is a bit high. 7900GTX was the uber not too long ago.

Pretty steep, but I'm sure it'll be worth it.

I have to buy the game either from UK or Poland, don't want the censored US released.

I think the specs are low actually. Any decent rig should be able to run the game with no problems. I'm looking forward to playing this one, but I'm disappointed that they did not choose to use DX10 for at least some new effects. This game will look like Oblivions younger brother...not bad at all, but not new either.

you can't compare Oblivion to Witcher.

If you want to compare Witcher to other games then you have to compare it to NWN, NWW2 and KOTOR series.

Witcher is pure RPG, not like Oblivion.

oh snap...I totally forgot about the US version being censored. Thank god for gogamer selling euro pc games. I have high hopes for this game. Looks great and the adult material will hit the spot nicely. I wonder how much of the game will be censored. I'll wait for a thorough review.

Gogamer.com and Gamestop.com has an Oct 30th release date for the US. Not sure if the euro version will come out earlier.

The only difference I have heard so far is that the north american version is censored a bit. I do not know to what extent but its probably your standard "no nudity, but lots of violence and mature themes are ok."

Nudity and the seduction quests were removed from the US version.

Everyone else even the Germans got the full unedited versions and in most cases with the same age rating that the game got in the US.

Those requirements aren't anything out of the ordinary.

If anything, 7900GTX probably won't be good enough to run at any decent res... 8800GTS 320/640 should be the recommended.

most recommended specs should be for med graphics and med resolution, not high settings.

i bet you do :p


:D

in regards to system specifications, the higher the better :)

2gb is a must for games and for a game to recommend less puts it down in my eyes

If this game runs smooth on a 7900gtx...i am gonna be in for a shock -.-. No way its gonna run smooth..maybe in 640x480 res..with max settings..

Any idea if there will be an unedited English version? For the UK maybe?

I hate getting stripped down games, even if they just removed a bit of pr0n...
