The Witcher 2

Before I begin, a video:

The Witcher 2 is definitely the best game I've played in a long time. First off, a bit of a digression: why don't games come with amazing game manuals anymore? I remember every time I drove home with my mom from the mall and she bought me a game, I would sit beaming reading the box and the manual over and over again. Now, most games come in crappy DVD boxes with no manual (just a .pdf if you're lucky). Game manuals help immersion immensely, putting you in the story of the game before you even play the game.

I bring this up because The Witcher 2 has the best game manual and box additions I have seen in years.

The Witcher 2's immersion is unmatched nowadays, with beautiful graphics and an extremely compelling storyline, with action combat that is great (albeit a bit clunky at times), and plenty of content to keep you playing.

Overall, The Witcher 2 is an amazing game and a must buy for any PC gamer.

APB: Reloaded Comments

Basically, I have two questions:

1) Why are people so awful at this game? I don't find myself to be particularly good, but the other team was god awful. Granted, their rankings weren't good at all, but it was a 3v1.
2) Sitting ready in a full district for some time by myself (5-10 minutes, no friends online) with multiple like-ranked people (gold 1-8ish), and I get a 3v1. Why?

Now, in this screenshot, 2 deaths from from hitting Notoriety 5 in a mission while being the only one on my team that's worth anything (besides the other gold 1), hence going 24-4 and still losing the mission. Please remove the ability to kill people out of your mission. I understand the point of Notoriety 5 (and it is quite fun being hunted as Notoriety 5), but being killed while you're carrying the team and losing because of it is just frustrating.
