    I installed the witcher 2 from my original discs 3 days ago, because I fancied playing it, it starts up, and needs to download a patch.... 10gb of patch!!!

    It didn't seem that I could play the game without patching, If I cut the internet it would say that the patch failed and to retry.

    I left it overnight, and the server failed, and told me to retry.
    I left it al day while I was in work, and the server failed and told me to retry.

    2 days later of observation I have downloaded it, and now it is taking 40 mins to intall.

    I wanted to play this game 3 days ago.

    This is ridiculous, we PC gamers are treated like $h!t!!!

    oh, you know what, its installed that, and its got more fcuking patches, 6gb so far!!

    Yeah, at least with Steam, you download the game and all the patches at the same time.
