Honestly, this game is really, really mature. I actually found some of the non-sexual scenes to be the most disturbing (e.g. torture, mutilation, public execution, certain obscenities, ect.) I think that it is possible to avoid all nudity, and I'll give you a guide to do so, but first I would like to say that the game is SO much better when you just play the game, rather than play it while trying to avoid mature content. I'd reccomend waiting another two or three years, but here goes..

First, there are two non-avoidable nude scenes, both near the end of the game. One utilizes a wierd, comic-book style art that you will have seen on occasion by then, and onother is in the epilogue, that featuress some half-naked women in a still shot with rotating camera.(you will also have seen this used twice by then) niether of these scenes is sensual at all, and merely serve as background while geralt and dandelion narrate, respectively.

Don't pick "That morning, the king summoned me" during the interrogation in the beginning of the game.(not that bad actually, just close your eyes and count to ten after geral turns to the girl in bed with him.

In the prologue, let Aryan LaValette live. If you don't a brief but very non-sexual bit of nudity comes up at the end of the prologue.

In chapter one, don't go to the whorehouse beneath the inn(obviously).

In chapter one, in elven ruins, don't pick the "You could use a bath" option.

At the end of chapter one, you are given a choice between siding with two different factions (Scoi'atael and Blue Stripes) Choose to side with Vernon Roche, and the Blue stripes.

In chapter two, don't go to the brothel. one quest involving square coins requires you to, and that one's okay, but just don't employ the prostitutes. I think that part is obvious.

Other than that, don't get into a romance with Ves.

In chapter 3, don't flirt with Cynthia.

Mostly, just use your head. If someone offers you a "fun time" or to "repay you for helping me", say no. It's generally obvious when sex is about to happen.

Okay, I think that's it, but remember, this is a choice-based game, so there are hundreds of different ways that the story could play out, so this guide is by no means fool-proof.

As for alternative games, Try Dragon Age series if you're okay with old graphics and meh combat. Mass Effect trilogy is fantastic if you like sci-fie or cover shooters.

Sorry that a "quick question" got such a long answer, but I wanted to be thorough. Hope this helps!

Also, try the Mass Effect series for a really personal and emotional journey.

Yes. Buggy and glitchy, to be sure, but the darkest, most interesting RPG to date. Also, the combat and graphics are epic too.

I'd reccomend playing through on normal or hard first, but if you already have, then yes, dark difficulty is a lot of fun, actually I found it easier than normal, since I was used to the combat by then. If you do all of the side quests to level up geralt before going on through the story, then you should be okay, although the end boss for chapter 2 is really cheap, and 3's boss is not terribly difficult after you memorize the attack pattern, but is unreasonably long(takes ages to whittle down it's health).

But yeah, dark difficulty is usually a blast.

When I beat the game on Dark, I put most of my skill points into leveling up magic, but especially the Quen sign. Put two points into Synthesis from the alchemy tree, and grab the riposte and footwork upgrades from swordsmanship. Make sure to upgrade Hardiness, Vigor Regen, and Fortitude. And really, do all of the side quests you possibly can, because you will need every skill point possible. also would suggest going for the blasphemer/oathbreaker/kinslayer armors if you don't mind a bit of a grind for money.

Nah, you can store and retrieve them from any chest, like they are all interconnected.

Nah, AC2 was the best, because it fixed every single flaw in the original and made everything so much deeper and more fun. The addition of a currency sysytem was perfect, the cities were much better and more colorful, the setting was more interesting, and the combat was much better. Also, dual hidden blades are awesome, though the entire game was just a bit too easy. But AC1 was definetly second best, it made you feel like an assassin, it had more interesting and likeable characters than the others, and it was presented in a masterful fashion that gave you just enough information to be interested, never explaining the goings-on too clearly, so the player was left scavenging info from e-mails and overheard conversations. So the first one had the player most interested, but the second game was the most fun.

Try looking into the witcher 2, dragon's dogma, mass effect, dragon age, kingdoms of amalur...

Just find whatever rune you want to use, select it, and it should ask you which sword you want to enhance.
