The Witcher Promo On GOG.com
By on May 10th, 2011

I have sufficiently managed to create a large amount of hatred (from my Twitter followers) for The Witcher 2 just by tweeting about it every single day. I cannot help it. The closer the game gets to release day, the more my intensity for the game grows. It is looking fantastic and promises to be the best role playing game this year (and I am making this statement knowing full well that Bethesda is developing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim).

There are quite a number of reasons why this sequel promises to be the best RPG this year. For one where other developers pushed into the limelight after a cracking introductory game try to make the sequel more presentable and less controversial, CD Projekt Red have made sure that there is no dilution to The Witcher. The world of The Witcher is still in many shades of gray with racism, sexism and controversial quests with no correctsolutions as well as strange characters who tread way beyond our moral upbringing (such as the King who has an incestuous relationship with his daughter, but is an extremely just and kind-hearted father otherwise). The main character himself gets laid way too many times throughout the original game (and perhaps this one as well).

In celebration of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings‘ release on GOG.com (CD Projekt Red’s sister company), the site has launched a two-week sale of the original game for the mind-numbingly low price of $5. Pre-ordering The Witcher 2 costs $44.99, so both the games together cost about $50. Not bad, considering you will be getting to know about a real dark-fantasy world full of parallels to our own world.

In case you did not know both the prices are for the digital download version of the DRM-free games. Yes, even The Witcher 2 is available DRM-free only on GOG.com, and it releases on the 17th of May. Go buy!
