Video Links: Witcher 2 Video Leaked: It’s that Witching Time Again
Posted by deckard47 on November 18, 2009
Oh, Geralt. You and your ponytail. Killing Krakens. What will you get up to next [Youtube link]? Maybe you’ll get rid of those childishly stupid “collection” cards with pictures of kind of naked women with whom you have had sex? For me? It doesn’t seem like too much to ask. The above video is apparently a leaked one, although now CD Projekt is moving to turn this “mistake” into a good thing. I’m sure that I’m ignorant when it comes to these kinds of things, but is this really that hard to spin this well? Let me try: our game, which isn’t coming out for a year, looks fucking amazing. Despite the fact that a diagonally slanted camera phone was used to leak this video, the village, people, and environments (especially that grassy field) all look quite beautiful. Also, Geralt, the easiest Witcher in all the land, fights a giant Earth Kraken, drops a giant building on its many-tentacled head, and then kills it in an awesome little sequence. The end.
See? Great press.
