On the one hand I think TW3 should never be on sale. Because it's worth every bloody cent of the original price.
On the other hand I know (and first hand, believe me, from my own past) that there are people out there with not much money to make ends meet, a family to feed, who don't just have the money to spend - and who I wish should also be able to enjoy this amazing piece of software (and read the books! preferably first!!).
So I'm really on the fence here...
I failed at Witcher 1. I just couldn't do it. I'm toward the end of chapter 2 in Witcher 2 and asked for the books for Christmas. I am seeing why the books are important. There are so many characters and locations and empires and kingdoms that it can be hard to follow the game.
