Hi, all. First of all I'm sorry for my English. Then I have a question for you guys. I'd like to buy the witcher 1 and 2 both. I decided to buy them on gog to support CDP. Now, I'm from Europe, on gog there is written: "We'll bill the equivalent in USD: $37.49 Since the EU price is almost $10 more than the price in USD, we’re giving you a $10 USD credit to spend on GOG.com." My question is: if I buy the witcher 2, will I get $10 and so will I able to buy the first witcher ($10) for free? Thank you.
This question / problem has been solved by Namurimage
You buy The Witcher 2 you get 10$ worth of credit store which you can then use as you see fit, which includes spending it on The Witcher 1 if that's what you wish.
Thanks, do the give to you a redeem code or something?
But why they do this? Isn't 38 dollars yet 30 euros?
The game costs 30 US dollars for non Europeans and 30 € for Europeans - around 38 US dollars, which means Europeans pay around 8 US dollars more. The store credit is to compensate European customers for that difference.

They will either give you a code-coupon of sorts to use on a purchase or a code to redeem a 9,99 game, i'm not sure how they're doing it now but they explain what you have to do to use the store credit on the email they send you regarding The Witcher 2 purchase.

Looking at the sale currently on GOG, I am tempted to buy W2
I have a pc with an AMD E1-1200 + processsor HD 6300 series Discrete class graphics and 4 gb ram.
think I can run the game on Low?
diableo 3 works well as does Torchlight
Thanks

I am debating this one too, but not out of concern over computer specs. I had difficulty dealing with the gratuitous BS in the first one and it seems like these elements are amplified in the second. Porn in the extras is not encouraging, nor are all the explosions in the trailer. They really drive home that I am not the game's intended audience, which presumably is a narrow spectrum of heterosexual males of limited intelligence and attention span and a fondness for unnecessary violence. Is there enough of a decent RPG mechanic operating here or vast, detailed, beautiful world to explore to make up for the more repellant aspects of the game or am I better off getting some of the classics on my wishlist that while priced at less of a discount are still considerably less expensive? I suppose I'm looking to hear from a fan to pitch the game to me.

Hm, probably not. The second digit is usually the important one as far as graphic cards are concerned, so that seems to be well under the minimum requirements.

Ha, a lot of fans at the official forums argued that extras such as that would have this exact reaction. Always nice to be proven right. Anyway, the RPG mechanics are pretty straightforward—as you level up, you branch out into skill trees, either focusing on magic, potions, or swordplay, or a mixture of all three (though you aren't able to get the higher-level skills if you don't focus heavily on one tree over the others). The game is more action-oriented than the first one and requires some reflexes, but it's also very stat-based and those who can work the numbers will always find a way to succeed.

The game world is semi-open, with smaller areas that you're free to explore depending on which chapter you're in. For example, there's a forest in Chapter 1 that you can run around and do quests in, and it's really detailed (all the areas are, really). Once you move on to Chapter 2, your character is in a different place and no longer able to go back to that forest.

Part of the reason for that is that the game is very focused on the story, which is far more detailed and present than in the first game. There's some nudity (including right at the beginning), but this isn't something that define the game or that it even relies on; compared to the first game, there's comparatively less sex and no focus on "collect them all" gameplay since the sex cards from the first game have been removed. The story is the main pull, and it's complex and intriguing in a way that the trailer and extras don't really convey; the whole "explosions and sex equals good game" mindset irritates me, yet I very much like this game because it's not about either of those things. To be fair, the (relatively short) prologue makes it seem like it's about bang-bang-action-all-the-time, and I remember being disappointed the first time I tried to play through the game because of that, but once you get into Chapter 1 you begin to see that the whole thing was only setting up the story that the rest of the game focuses on.

There are some QTEs, though. That's the only thing that I would argue is aimed at the narrow spectrum you mentioned. Only two or three of them in the entire game, to be fair, but the fact that they're present at all is annoying. I'd argue that the story is well worth it, however.

Thanks, that was kind of my suspicion, as it is consistent with the first game.
