:/ Steam makes it look like it is released already


I noticed this as well. Really odd, it doesn't have a release date on it but the page looks like any other for a game that is out and it's not listed under the "coming soon" tab, but in the "specials" tab. Odd. On top of that the digital premium edition is $44.99 right now, too.

Amazon has it for $47.99 and with your order you get the Ultimate Swordsman suit DLC.

Gamestop has it for $49.99 and you get the merchant pack as a bonus dlc which is the following:
  • Unlocks a special character within each chapter of the game, offering for sale only items obtainable through side-quests.
  • Valuable items, ingredients and schematics, randomly available in Merchant's offering

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 I never played the first one, is it worth a play through or does it feel "out of date"?

Definitely worth it, graphics are a bit dated but it is a really good game once you get into it. Definitely play through the starter area and into the next area a bit before you decide to play it through to the end or not. First time I played it I quit during the starter area, came back to it a year or two later, played farther, then ended up playing it every day until I had beaten it.

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

Agreed, but I am a bit of a sword collector so a free sword with a game would be a definite buy for me, assuming the sword looks nice and has a decent price on it, no matter what the game is. :p

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?

Not really......it wasn't really turn based, it was just combo based. You could click M1 as fast as you could and get lots of small hits in, but to really do damage you had to time your clicks to increase the combo. Essentially you had to use combos to be effective with sword attacks, it wasn't your typical aim-shoot or click-hold on an enemy to kill it.

Anyone know if this will have censored/uncensored versions like the original game?

GR: Different parts of the world have different censorship guidelines, whether it’s more sensitive in America or in Europe, is there a chance that, say, if you’re selling it in America, you may need to block out boobs or make it less violent? For example, the original No More Heroes, in America it had blood shooting out of the enemies, but when it came over to the UK, it was placed with sprites, and there was no blood. Are there going to be any censorship differences between the territories? Or will it be the same game everywhere you buy it?

TG: Well, we’re aiming for the same game everywhere. But, we were aiming the same with The Witcher, so you never know until you actually submit the game. I mean, we have to get ready to potentially censor stuff; it was the same case with our recent trailer, the Prison Break trailer that we released on the net, it had to be censored in the United States. We had to blur out the breasts… but somehow Gametrailers uploaded the wrong one, without censorship, which was really funny! *Laughs* And nobody even noticed!

Pre-ordered from Steam. Was gonna get it from GOG mainly cause they have some extra goodies but I don't want to end up forgetting to download the game when it comes out lol. At least with Steam it'll download automatically.

For anyone considering playing the first, do it. It still looks better than most new RPG's coming to PC and the gameplay, especially the storyline is great. Definitely worth a pick up.

Interesting. Unfortunately, the collector's edition is out of my price range. I'll be happy with the regular version.

Press F3 to change views. This should change the controls so you can use the traditional WASD and use the mouse for combat.

Dev Diary 2, about the game engine. They confirm the system requirements I posted on the second page.
