A Sexy, Superb RPG Experience

GIN
4 July 2011
  • Excerpt: When the original Witcher RPG released a few years ago, it took the world by storm, and stirred up quite a bit of controversy. Geralt of Rivia was based on a series of graphic novels, and while a lot of sexy stuff can occur between the pages in that format, computer games are still kind of prudes...
