Buying the Witcher 2 Second Hand
Hey, if I were to buy The Witcher 2: Subtitle second hand, would I be faced with any DRM issues, and are there any DLC codes that I would lack? Thanks

If you were to buy the Witcher 2 second hand, you'd have most of this site sneer at you.
I don't remember the game coming with a code, and all DLC was included in a recent patch, and the game has no DRM. But you should buy it new, just to support CDProjekt RED. I mean, if you're going to support any dev, they deserve it more than most.

All DLC is free and you can install on as many computers as you like, I believe this is true.

While I do think the used-game-as-a-business-model approach (a la Gamestop) is a bit slimy, there's no reason why people shouldn't be allowed to trade things between each other (unless its dishonest i.e. you could both continue to play the game at the same time). Devs do deserve to be paid, of course, but I can resell anything else I own (including movies and CDs) without feeling morally wrong.

All the DRM was removed, and also I am fairly sure that all the DLC (GOG stuff, preorder exclusives etc) are included in patches, or available as small downloads. So no, you shouldn't have any issues buying a second hand copy.
Edit: The only thing you might miss out on, would be some of the physical extras, unless they are included in the purchase. Things like the map, the pamphlet, the paper craft stuff. I assume it's a physical copy.

Nothing wrong with buying second-hand. Do people around here sneer at folks who frequent used bookstores as well?
Anyway, sorry I couldn't be more help.
