Anyway, I'm tempted to retry it with new choices and a higher difficulty, but I heard my decisions can carry over to Witcher 2, so I've got to see how that works out.
So, I'm back after a while
and I can see I missed a lot - for example, you finishing the game at least once
I also finished it once again, just recently, and I'm thinking of playing the Witcher 2 again. Surprisingly, I played the original game on non-humans side and I made the same choices the second time (damn, I'm starting to notice an idiotic pattern here), doubt it'll be anything different with part 2. The same is with Skyrim, I never seem to be able to be with on the Stormcloaks' side until the very end, I simply love and support the idea of the Empire (and for the Emperor!), although, looking from the political perspective (which is, actually, the only important perspective) - I can also support the Stormcloaks. Nevermind, I've wondered off the topic here.
Don't know if anyone mentioned it before me, but there is a TV show, as well as a movie: http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/The_Hexer_%28TV_series%29
. I've never watched them, but I plan to, even though I've read the comments, even the comment of Mr. Sapkowski himself, that the movie is horrible!
Anyhow, have you read the books? I'm finishing book 4 of the Witcher saga - The Swallow's Tower and it's an understatement to say that I'm simply fascinated with all books (I've also read two books with storylines preceding the Witcher saga: The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny). There are a lot of elements I recognize from other epic fantasy novels, fairytales, legends, and of course, mostly from Slavic mythology, but it doesn't make the plot any less interesting - on the contrary. I am very sad to be coming to an end of the Witcher era (got two more books left and that's it, for now)
Btw. one advice (if it's not too late): re-visit all locations with monster as many times as you can, because it will give you experience necessary for advancement and building of your character!
