there is no telling if this game will be bug-less or not b/c of the later release date. its not up to the developers to set the release date, its really up to the accountants. they're the ones that say they can't spend anymore money developing the game without selling it, then using that money to make patches, etc....i suppose i am going to continue to be concerned about this game working properly b/c i had such a hard time with neverwinter nights 2, another atari release that i had to quit playing 1/2 way in, it was just that bad. hope and pray the witcher will be a great satisfying game. i've enjoyed keeping up wiht all of the updated info as it comes. screenshots look absolutely wonderful.
