The Witcher Preview

Shacknews is next in line with a preview of CD Projekt's The Witcher, after seeing the CRPG firsthand at the Leipzig Games Convention.
Madej also ran me through a few mini-games at a bar located in a bad part of town--I could tell because of all the prostitutes on the street as he approached. Among the activities at a bar available at bars are the requisite drunken brawling and a drinking game similar to blackjack, in that you have to drink more than your opponents but not drink too much. The more he had Geralt consume, the blurrier the game screen got and the more difficulty he had walking. If you get too drunk, he cautioned, you'll pass out and wake up in a different location, possibly sans some clothing, items, and money.
