My memories of the Witcher 1 are shrouded in anticipation for the second game, due to which I forced myself to play through the first one. They're mostly positive memories, but I did have to use a walkthrough quite a lot. I guess the game did have some sort of replayability once, but these days anyone can be glad if they crossed it off their backlog ;)

Loved the game though, although it would have been nice if it were a bit harder.

I started a chaotic evil playthrough of Planescape: Torment today and have had to briefly walk away from my PC twice already.

I'm on hard, using potions liberally (ie. as and when needed). I'm also completing every side quest I come across. I couldn't find any way of lowering the difficulty manually, but I did find a mod that allowed you to buy potions that changed the difficulty. Even though they're sold by every merchant, unfortunately for me I've, as far as I'm aware, spoken to all the ones available at the moment. If someone has another way, I wouldn't mind knowing.

Some more Might & Magic 8. My party consists now of Lady Anthile, a vampire (kind of a paladin, it's weird), a necromancer (basically just a normal mage), a cleric and a minotaur (also kind of a paladin, it's even weirder). Having solved "the dire wolf problem" which involved killing literally dozens of wolves in what took me about an in-game month of hit and run because they would attack me with about 10-15 at a time and all of them capable of killing my weaker characters in 2-3 hits. Oh, and that was before going into the actual dire wolf dungeon. It's one of the most difficult early quests in any game I have ever played.
Well, it gets a bit easier afterwards and I was able to buy some proper gear and training. The quest after that is a bit difficult to describe in mere words. I was told to clear out a nearby smuggler cave but I wasn't quite prepared for what followed...

Love the minotaur's face on the second shot. He looks so happy.

Anyway, now that I've gotten into the Trade Quarter I decided to upgrade my silver sword, which went unmodified for the entirety of chapter 1 and 2 because I didn't realise I needed special runes for them. Two blue runes, one red. Hopefully that'll make some difference.

And that's Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy done!
Played it back in the day, and wanted to relive it. Got a taste for it when me and my fiancée started watching all the Star Wars movies together a couple of weeks back.
The lightsabre in that game is fantastic, but there are really too many lightsabre duels in the end game.
Now, maybe time to return to The Witcher or try Miasmata...

I don't remember having much trouble with anything in Witcher 1. Are you reading all the notes and stuff about the monsters? They help.
And that is not to say I'm the überplayer and you suck, I pretty much got destroyed on the first fight when I tried to play Witcher 2 on normal.

Got involved as an arbiter between two Brahmin Farmers having a beef (snarf) in New Vegas, both of whom are wearing more or less the same clothes and are voiced by the same person doing the same accent which also happens to be the voice of Duncan from Dragon Age. It's Immersive stuff.

I think your build also makes a big difference in the Witcher. My first play was pretty hard. My second play was trivial because I pumped points into aard and quen fast. Stun with force push and use shield to drastically increase survivability.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

After having a gaming binge of over 3 weeks on my PSVita (God DAMN Persona 4 Golden is ridiculously good) I have finally started Brutal Legend, and more or less what I expected, I adore the setting, characters and soundtrack, but the gameplay is meh-ish. Still quite enjoying it, though.

Just got s the narrative of driver San Francisco, I'll be back to playing it, I'm far from finished but some of the (completely optional) dare objectives feel impossible at times.I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
