All great sword and sorcery epics have an element of romance to them. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings gets the romancing underway within the first ten minutes of starting a new game. Be warned: I've misplaced my censor bars.

How soon you get to this scene in CD Projekt's latest PC role-playing game depends on the choices you make. As the game opens the game's hero, Geralt of Riva, finds himself forced to recall a series of events leading up to a most heinous crime. There are four sequences to play through in any order. I just happened to stumble upon this one first.

Be on the lookout for more exciting tidbits from The Witcher 2 as I work my way out of bed and into the epic adventure.
