    The Witcher 2

    19 May 2011


    The Witcher 2 is a newly-released RPG generating a lot of excitement because it's one of the few major titles to be PC-exclusive upon release. I can vouch for the fact that it has excellent graphics and depth of gameplay, and isn't watered down for console compatibility. To give those of you wondering what all the fuss is about a taste, I've prepared an HD YouTube Video of some gameplay at maximum possible settings, minus the Ubersampling (Supersampling) setting which no current single GPU can run smoothly. Nvidia has asked me to write a tweak guide for The Witcher 2, and it should hopefully be up on GeForce.com in the near future. One indispensible tip for those of you who, like me, prefer inverted mouse control: go to the \My Documents\Witcher 2\Config directory, open User.ini with a text editor like Notepad, and add a minus sign in front of the numerical value for the MouseSensitivityY variable (e.g. MouseSensitivityY=-0.163462).
