yes, the US version was cesored apparently...for only sex and nutidy...however I have heard that some quest with heavy emphasis on these scences may have been removed altogether.

To my understanding (and I've been reading everything and anything I can on The Witcher) there have been some elements removed in the sense of references to things like rape and what not but not any actual footage of anything. If there has...then *shrug*. I find it amusing though that, once again, in America no f***ing less, violence is perfectly ok, just so long as there arent any naked people. lmao. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go to a strip club, rent a prostitute, then get a massage from an asian parlour down a dark alleyway *scampers off*

When are people going to realize that video games ARENT FOR LITTLE KIDS ANYMORE?!?!?!

Sure, Dakota Fanning can be in a movie where she gets raped by a pedophile but we cant have alittle nudity in a rated-M video game. Comeon people this is getting out of hand.

Infact there is no such thing as a "Canadian version", we always get the US version, why can't they call it the "north american version"?

BTW cant edit for some reason, says " You do not have access to create msgs on this board."

I just dont understand the point of a rating system when everything is censored anyway. Thats like, on the US system, making an R-rated movie, leaving it rated R, but pulling all the bad stuff out and making it PG13.

Oh, and its OK to hack people's heads off but god forbid we see a boobie or two!

That really sucks that it's being censored, though as far as I know we shouldn't be blaming America at large for this. It was probably the publishers call. If it turns out that the censorship is significant then maybe I'll try to get a hold of an english/european copy. I just hope this game pans out.

If there has...then *shrug*. I find it amusing though that, once again, in America no f***ing less, violence is perfectly ok, just so long as there arent any naked people. lmao. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go to a strip club, rent a prostitute, then get a massage from an asian parlour down a dark alleyway *scampers off*dysguised22

Well at least they don't take out the violence or ban the game unlike some other countries.

I'm pretty sure someone is going to put up something that unlocks or re-adds the stuff that got censored...

Ah the beauty of the PC!

Agreed, mang. There were boobs in God of War. How much worse can the nudity be in The Witcher? It's rated M so keep in the boobs for Herrick's sake!

On the bright side, I've heard it said in The Witcher Forum here, that modding the game to bring forth The Boobs should be a simple task. I hope that is true. All of us adults who are buying the game should be able to have it as The Developers intended it to be. I know we can get the UK import but we shouldn't have to do that. I can easily buy porn in The States but I can't buy a game in the states that has boobs? WTF?

Well seeing as PC games never have region controls like consoles you can simply order it overseas and have it shipped here. I have a couple of European versions of games because I didn't want to wait for a North American release.

Ya, every time you manage to bang a girl in the game - which actually takes gameplay to do - you get a nude card of her that sits in your journal. The cards is a 2d portrait. I don't know if you use it later, I just figured its for people to uhmm... help reimagine the expriance to, err... you know... workout the left hand.

It will be modded back in...

People are already working on it...

Anything that was hardwired into the game and then removedcan be replaced..

I don't understand the double standard either....

It is rated M...right?

Thats because, according the old men in charge (aka white protestant politicians) games and cartoons are still for kids.

When, oh whenI say! will our generation finally take over politics? I hope soon.

I think it's funny that freedom of speech/first amendment is such a central part of american legislation, still games get censored for idiotic reasons. Any M-rated game should be allowed to have a boob in it or a sexual act if you ask me... It's a natural thing to do, for God's sake. I'll never understand american (as in US) censorship of mass media. Hypocrisy all over the place...
