    Who exactly is moaning on the forums? The game isn't out yet, ergo, the only footage people have seen is compressed streams or youtube videos.

    How can they be facing backlash for something that people can't see yet? As far as I remember the E3 footage only looked excellent when you downloaded the 4gig video of gameplay.

    That is exactly what I wrote to those bashing new images from game. As images were jpegs with 75~85% quality settings.

    I wanted the 100% DRM free version but its selling for $14.99 higher than steam so I went with steam this time. Hopefully the steam versions DRM will not cripple the game performance.

    $32 riiiight.

    $41.49 as a preorder $49.99 full price.

    Not saying it's not worth that etc but they shouldn't bull**** all the same.

    Just because it's being sold on Steam does not mean is has Steamworks integration. Most non-Steamworks games launch even without Steam open.

    Both Witcher games are on there, you even have the option to get the GoG installer for Witcher 2 if you got it on Steam.

    Hmmm I was able to retrieve my Witcher EE retail key, but not my Witcher 2 steam key. Any hints on that? Maybe contact support by email?

    i got it for around $24 which is a good bargain price and it feels good to buy a game from hard earning money and giving it to hard earning developers. Cant wait for their next game cyberpunk 2077

    I will certainly be looking at GOG for future games.... especially when the companies attitude is like that.

    I just headed to gog.com, and W3 seems to be 49.79€, far far away from 32$....

    Pirated boats will be dragged by water current and will capsize due to windstorms...

    Pirated AI companions will stab player in back.

    Pirated NPC spawn strategy will make Witcher pray day and night till he dies.

    Pirated UI will not properly show how much intoxicated Witcher is, nor will show correctly his health level.

    (That is what I would call fair pirate play. You pirate, you play on pirate difficulty.)

    $32, umm nope try $71.99 Australian dollars.
    Not that I pirated the game, I bought it early from a CDKEY site for like $35 (Which even being a RU key it was bought before Steam changed it's policy so I was able to pre-load).
