It talks about the game's engine which, in my opinion, is very impressive.

Looks like they updated the UI a bit. Still, it's the same prison escape level we saw earlier.

Sweet, only 6 more months until release......Those requirements are quite low, but remember, they are requirements, not recommended. Still surprising considering I just watched the video yesterday of them saying they do not know the requirements for the game, and that video was uploaded only like a week ago. Guess they were a lot close to being done than they let on in that video.

Either way, can't wait for this. I love games that ignore the stigma that nudity has (granted it will likely have a higher rating), not only for the nudity, but its sort of refreshing to see how much more realistic a game can be when things like nudity are used correctly (like the women being held in the dungeon and what not, in that day and age that is how you would expect a female prisoner to be treated).

Hm, seems like an interesting game. I never played the first one, is it worth a play through or does it feel "out of date"?

Would be better if they gave you a free witcher sword rather than a weird sculpture. :whistle:

The graphics are tolerable (and I find older games usually too ugly to pick up again) and gameplay is really good, you should read some reviews too see what were the biggest gripes with it, but I liked it, if I had more time I'd probably start playing it again.

Now THAT's how you do a collectors edition, not all this other crap with in game items and stuff and a piddly artbook they're doing nowadays.

Hmm iirc wasnt the first game some wierd turn based style point and click?

Is this going to be a direct control action rpg in the likes of Gothic and Two Worlds?

The original was a proper semi turn based on, you coudl do either or, in the style of the original Baldurs Gate games.

and I certainly hope they stick to the isometric third person RPG style, I don't care overly much if it's turn based or not, but at times it's nice to be able to pause to set up your strategy.
