31.07.2012 @ 08:20If you do decide to play through TW1 again, it will make you feel fresh and ready for TW2. On the plus side, you will also get to see how your actions affect your TW2 experience.
I really should find my TW1 copy and play through it again.
31.07.2012 @ 07:55I like the fact you don't get your weapons carried over. It adds challenge and makes you think about what you are doing in combat; making it more enjoyable overall.
As for the arena, you progree as you kill enemies and you gradually level up. Did you play more than one round?

I have a 2 and a half year old notebook which cost me about $1300 back in 2009 and it was considered a 'multimedia laptop'. It was not designed for games, and it about on the last of it's legs I will admit, but it can still run games at a playable frame rate(Sort of). I may have to turn the TW2 down to 1024x768 just to be able to experience this masterpiece, but it still works(To a degree)
Saying that you should only run games on 'gaming laptops' is just ridiculous. Most gaming notebook are WAY overpriced and a decent notebook will see you through for about 18months or so. As far as I am concerned, if you want outright power and a silky smooth gaming experience, go for a desktop. I used to think that all notebooks bar the expensive brands, which have all the hype about them, were the only option to go for if you wanted to game till your eyes bled; but being a poor uni student changes this outlook...
As for saying that you cannot expect a game to run smoothly on a mac. As much as it pains me to say it, the new Mac Book Pro's have some decent hardware which can handle demanding games. Despite them being over priced by the hipsters that built them, they have come A LONG way and it is no surprise they are giving windows a run for their money.
Sucks to hear you cannot run it on medium setting mate, but the story makes up for that anyway. I myself play on the lowest settings possible and I have just finished my second play through without really caring about how beautiful the game looks. I have yet to play this game on settings above low, si my opinions may change in the future.
If you are going to get into running all games on super uber graphics, then get a decent desktop and expect to have to upgrade every year or so.
+1 to PC's being superior to Mac's in customisation.
27.07.2012 @ 15:14I remember when I first had to deal with the Kayran. It was the most intense fight I ever had in the Witcher Series.
Staying to the sides is the easiest way I found. Left two first, then move over to the right and get it over with in seconds by using the Kayran Trap. Quen was my friend during that bout and I avoided the breath of detest whenever possible.
When the Kayran goes aggro, I found that running towards the ledge where you entered was the most effective avoidance method.
The second time I tried (Difficulty:Hard), I did it in one go. Made my day.
That awkward moment when you realise after 10+ attempts that only the Mutated (Red glowing) tentacles can be trapped by Yrden..

Peetz said:For organization, I suggest that you make a separate folder to hold your saves. As mentioned above, you can keep the lag time when saving and loading to a minimum if your witcher2\gamesaves folder is kept fairly clean. You can make an organization like: Act1; Act2; etc - and even keep important point saves that you can go back to later (Roche Path; Iorveth Path) . Because there are so many different branching playthroughs, you could end up with a LOT of savegames. ›››
That is genius! Why didn't I think of that!!?!?!
I better get organised toot sweet, as I have way too many saves at the moment.
