I'm still playing. I would agree that mechanically it's absolute turd, plus it's Game of Thrones wannabee bawdiness is incredibly cheesy and forced. But, it's world building, story and most of the acting is keeping me playing. Once you get immersed in its world most of its flaws are surmountable. I do have a feeling its going to be much too long though, I'd like to get any game I play finished in a few weeks at absolute most.

anyone tried the enhanced edition 4.0 mod? worth a reinstall?

"good"/soulsesque combat sounds pretty appealing but the other features (overhauled crafting system) sound a bit bloaty. (like yer ma)

word of advice; take a long breather after the main game's done before jumping into the dlcs (they add like another 100 hours or so easily, if you're thorough). they're set like years after the main campaign anyway and very separate distinct stories.

Just one of those games that didn't work for me. I can quite happily get involved in a lengthy RPG romp (Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fallout) but this was just torture. Part of me wonders if my lack of patience was due to being thrown an already developed character I had no stakes with. Maybe one day I'll give it another crack, but I'd have to be pretty bored to do so.

Nah.

Don't do this for Hearts of Stone. It's a nice way to break up the main game (after you get to Novigrad, perhaps?), is set in the same area (Velen/Oxenfurt), and is set during the war.

Yeah Blood and Wine is the major expansion, but Hearts of Stone is the best self-contained story, and it's fun and gives you something different to do.

I’d say go for both - hearts of stone is shorter but has an ace story - the real value for money is in blood and wine though

I had to drop back to an earlier save on this because the bit with the pirates on the ship was impossible so I presume I have to spend ages levelling up before I should carry on?

Switch off levelling - you've been told.

I know you're playing it on a PS4 - you need to fix that too.

The switch is most likely located next to your electric meter and/or fuse box.

Go and do all the side quests at your level before progressing the story is basically the thing to do

I really should have been doing this instead of just accumulating quests by the bucket-load and saying to myself that I'll come back to them 'at some point'. Vastly over levelled for a fair few at this point, so there's no incentive to do them beyond the intrigue and promise of an interesting story.

Just arrived in Skellige so probably at a similar point to you biggy.

Still find the way Geralt controls and interacts with the environment to be absolutely atrocious. Makes controlling Arthur Morgan seem like the epitome of precision and slick movement by comparison.

Yeah his controls have cheap eurojank game written all over them, so jittery and clunky. He runs like he's shit himself too, which he may have for all I know but I couldn't see it in his stats.

I'm still playing this but only just realised how you level up, so have been playing with all of my skill tree at the lowest level. It's Dark Souls all over again.

The thing where you have to 'find dandelion' is so long i'm not sure i'll ever complete it in my lifetime.

That's alright, mate.  I've been upon this earth for 37 years and I still don't know how to level up.

i didn't like it because it was so windy all the time. felt like it was bugged or something. if it was just a bit windy i probably would have liked it. life's too short to spend my time in a windy fantasy.

Yeah it is underwhelming. Apart the combat which is average the sell was that your story/character options were uncompromising/unsentimental. They were but the characters and story were largely without charm or empathy. Except the whole baby episode.

OK, about a third maybe. I assumed I was halfway but no. I finished around level 40 or something and did almost no side content. You could honestly be about ten percent if you did all the side stuff.
