The Witcher 2‘s release on console seemed an appropriate enough reason for the Moving Pixels podcast crew to have a look at last year’s well regarded PC RPG.

We are of differing opinions regarding the success that CDProjekt has had in doing this, though, and in their presentation of the politics and pathos in the game’s narrative.
