A touching moment all but ruined. (Spoiler)

Another thing regarding animals. The quest where Geralt gets hammered with the Blue Stripes and wakes up semi-naked in the mud ... why were there no pigs there? Would have been awesome if he was awakened by a pig about to eat him or taking a dump on him or something like that

And he's an elf. He loves Bambi.

For the first part, you can make the argument both ways. I thought it was quite fitting and beautiful in its own right. No shame in having sensitive creatures bidding Cedric farewell.

It's not just Disney-esque, I was convinced I was seeing that event through Geralt's pragmatic and cynical world view. There is nothing there, in his eyes. But he has enough humanity to set that aside and bid a noble man farewell. It was so perfect.
In short, this was one of my favorite moments in the game.

Slim - putting you in with the previous posts about Bambi. I hope you don't mind
(And it gets rid of that spoiler thread title. Killing two little fluttery birds with one stone here).

But I really agree with Slim, that the pre-enhanced version scene was much better. Even if you are not sure of whats really happening in the scene, leaving the interpretation open for the viewer, so he/she can fill in the blanks, is soo much better than rubbing bambis on our noses...

Are you sure? I'd be interested to see a source or link saying this was their intention. Anyway, I can't see anything but Disney about it and I loved the ambiguity in the previous scene. Did Geralt feel spiritual at that moment? Or was he just being reverential? It's up to the viewer.

Not without the toolkit, AFAIK.
When the toolkit comes out, I'd like to add a couple of endregas.

Add in ghastly Kayran, waving its gooey spectral tentacles around the forest and weeping for the fallen warriors~
Not sure if weather in that scene is set, but I usually saw it during rainy nights. This time it was a bright, sunny afternoon. Took all seriousness out of it, not to mention the animals (that did not exist in the forest until that very moment...)
