  1. depends what you class as complex. BotW sacrifices realism for gameplay purposes. Witcher is a more realistic world. Both are great games. BotW does mapping and general exploration better IMO but in such a way that would maybe feel odd if it was ‘realistic’.
  2. Matt Lees did a great wee youtube on game design for a review of BotW... his whole thing was 'where does the game reside'... where do you spend a lot of your time looking. The minimap is a good example of this. You've got a massive screen and you spend a lot of time looking at the top right corner. I love the game, but it's a fair point.
  3. it's *definitely* worth seeing that story line through to the conclusion... just.... be prepared
  4. I'm continually amazed at how they got this going on the switch - and going so well.
  5. Finally decided to go to Skellige (or Space Norway), really just for a change of scenery as I'm no rush... I'm playing it like I'm Cain from Kung Fu - cuttin aboot, rocking up into town and seeing what's happening and heading off on wee adventures. I usually manage a self contained quest end to end on a single train journey. Like wee telly episodes. Great stuff. I got to Skellige when I last played on PS4 but I was just mainlining the story and not really stopping to take it in properly. It's very very nice.

    I'm having some trouble with my right joycon... while it works attached or detached, I can't get it to synch as a second controller horizontally for playing Mario Kart. I detached both joycons, hold sl+sr on the left one and it works fine and the wee light comes on... try the same with the right joycon and nothing happens. It's still active, for example, I can use 'b' to cancel... but just can't get it to recognise the sl+sr presses anyone else had this problem?
  7. The boardgame is fucking brilliant btw... where else can you play cards called Jupiters Cock and My Cock Rages on. It also benefits from being a *genuinely* excellent game.
  8. First two series are best... every screen moment of John Hannah is fucking joy.
  9. and finally - I wish they'd release programmes weekly rather than for bingeing - I know people love to binge but a weekly release keeps the hype going longer and the wait between series shorter. See also The Expanse.
  10. to add - episode 3 and 4 were the highlights. 1-4 were all awesome. 5 was "important' lore wise. 6 had a real fucking Golden Dragon in it and 7 and 8 were effectively a single episode which I really enjoyed (although sadface at lack of Geralt at the end but, again, LORE). I thought the entire series had very little flab in it - to the point where it seemed *ultra dense*. Definitely warrants a rewatch and short enough to make it feasible.
  11. If I had a dissapointment with the finale it was that there wasn't enough Witchering going on... but I really liked the visions Geralt had of his early life and thought MAGE WARS was awesome.
  12. Am I the only person who loved the proper Mage Wars at the end? None of your pishy lord of light fireworks here. Yennefer would fucking torch Melisandre’s arse.
  13. The game keep telling me to go to Skellige... BUT I DONT WANT TO YET...
  14. That’s me done. That was cracking. Loved the whole series - just a shame there’s no more till 2021
  15. that's exactly how I'm playing it now on the switch... actually walking through Novigrad rather than bolting everywhere and looking for fast travel. Some of the citizens random background chat can be really funny.

    tell you something - stoating about Novigrad on the train is *the best thing*
  17. exactly - I didn't appreciate they were not parallel timelines until we saw the Yennefer point out the brother and sister. I thought that was really cool.
  18. There’s no nice ending to the BB quest. It’s part of the Witcher lesson...
  19. The reason they did the timeline they way they did was to ensure they could introduce Ciri from the start
