Why Velt? (The Witcher)

It wasnt long ago that I stopped playing The Witcher Enchanced Edition, it was sudden and I said to myself "is ok, we have been playing this game with all its sidequests and having a great time, now is the time for casual gaming and more study". The study is over for now but I have found that the idea of going back to The Witcher and its complicated chapter 2 is... welll, quite too much for my brain right now.

This is one of the reasons of why you must play this game.

Anyway, is interesting to say that it is a great game and it deserves the console port is going to get, I hope it does work out well since I want more of The Witcher in my PC (I really have to read the books btw).
I remember at the time before its release on the PC, some editor here said that the videos of the Witcher were uninteresting and too much blah blah blah, well is an RPG with lots of action. The first release was buggy, that killed my relationship with the game, but then the Enchanced Edition come a year after with some extra content, so i started playing again.
This time they are fixes everywhere, load times, crashes, etc...

I have been writing a review of this game, but I want to finish it before I post it. But if you dont want to wait for my final opinion, I have a lot of hours into the game as it is and I can say for sure that it deserves a try even if you are not that much into RPG�s (like me). The story is everything in this game and some ideas like the creation of potions (as complicated it may seem at the start), are very cool indeed and very good implemented once you get how to do it you will know what to use and when.

Well, this is only a heads up for those waiting or not waiting the console "port" (I know most of the people here are console gamers), for those with a capable PC, maybe you should check the specs and buy The Witcher Enchanced Edition. Is a shame that is not on STEAM, it should be.

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
