Mine puts 'em chronological. Maybe there's a sort option somewhere?

Why does the game play in letterbox format? I run it at 1920x1200 and I get the black bars.

Yes, big time. Your CPU is surely bottlenecking that 6870 of yours.

Going to get this, looks polished as well and no console port fail.

Dragon Age 2 looks complete fail compared to Witcher 2.

I've gotten really good at the combat now . . . it was really daunting to learn initially, but once you figure it out you're a total badass. just learn to use your signs (defensive, offensive, crowd-control) as well as your bombs and traps, and learn when to dodge or parry. I won't get into too much detail (believe me, I could) but suffice it to say the combat in this game is incredibly deep.

as for the other aspects, game is absolutely gorgeous. haven't run into any issues stability/performance wise. story/writing/voiceacting are all top-notch so far. cdproject really brought their A game with this one.

Bioware/EA, take notes. THIS is how you do an RPG properly.

ok, I'm having some fun just running through the campaign, but theres still alot of, well, crap in the game, and most none online rpg's seem to fail in this.

#1 a questing system that is easy to follow and easy to navigate. tell me if I am, in the area to complete said quest! And for christe sake if I am about to LEAVE an area and it will cause me to fail a quest, prompt me first.

#2. Outer lying zones being linier. The best thing about mmos, everquest, wow, is they made it seem like you could run anywhere any time any day. You could just run in all directions and you wold run over huts, other roads, encampments, lakes, ect. GET RID OF THIS SPIDERY PATH BS. If I cant jump the fence and slide down the small hill, you had better give me a good reason or I am docking you points!

#3 no jump button... see above. Getting stuck on pebbels has never been so stupid.

#4 crappy gear. Why am I 4 hours into the game and my gear has only cycled like twice? in WoW I would be in greens and gone through at least 4 sets. I also would have had my CHOICE in gear to get. not random drops. This has actually been a problem in many MMOs too, generally once you've killed everything at least once, theres not much reason to keep playing unless there is loot to obtain still.

#5 trade skills. 5 years and WoW is still the only one to get it right the first time? Just give me a clear cut window, vendors, recipes I can right click to learn. I have no idea how the tailoring works in the game.

left-clicking does a quick, light damage attack while right-clicking does just the opposite. you have to learn to time your attacks properly so there are no pauses in between (just like witcher 1).

as for 1-shot kills, you just have to get a stun to successfully proc off an enemy. the arda sign can do that, as well as samum bombs (those are the ones I know of, so far). once their stunned, just attack them (left or right click, doesn't matter) and their done.

knowing how to use the targeting system helps too. alt locks onto a target so you're not accidentally jumping around attacking different targets.

use dodge a lot. parry only when necessary (completely surrounded, for example) or when you're vs. one enemy.

there's probably more, but I need to sleep. have fun and good luck

yeah i've been switching between L/R attacks... but on some i do some power move that just kills guys even w/o using a sign... it's some combo.
