I have to say, I'm trying to get into the mindset of a Witcher but it's too easy to be nice and decline payment. I gotta snap out of that nonsense, there's no Light Side/Paragon counter that I know of in this game. I fear I'm playing me, not a Witcher.

I was in the Blood and Wine DLC before I even bothered to try the haggling option for my payment. I must've missed out on a potential fortune. Oops. :ph34r: Still, I had more cash than I knew what to do with by the end, just from selling the weapons and armour from everyone I brutally killed.

Can’t you wangle much more coin out of them if you use the Jedi mind tricks first?

 

I’m using the Ghostmode overhaul which balances out the economy somewhat (as well as loads of other stuff), so hopefully I don’t end up too rich with nothing left to buy. So far the income has been quite tough. Even after rinsing absolutely everything I could find I had to carry back loads of rusty swords from that battlefield in White Orchard to pay for the final piece of my Temerian armour set.

Knowing how KOTOR worked, I did put all 3 points in the magic sign that influences conversations as soon as I could, I'm hoping that unlocks some interesting options.

 

Yeah, not really wanting for money yet, just trying to get into character as it were. I enjoy these games more if I can do that.

On what planet is that even remotely fun? :lol:

I thought it worked out alright. Everything done and everything worthwhile purchased with a few coins left to spare. I was there to blow up a monster nest anyway. I could have sold off a big chunky amethyst and a couple of my other semi-valuable finds, but I'm noticing I'm getting stiffed by vendors and only ending up with a small percentage of the item value for some reason. I want to keep them until I can sell them for more.

 

I dislike ending up being power rich in games to the point where the currency ends up being trivial. Limited cash means purchasing decisions have to be made much more carefully.

I’ll tell you what else I like about these balancing changes. She’s removed any chance of finding nice stuff in generic loot spots, so no more finding a lush new sword in some random sack beside a peasant’s house - and thus no more hours wasted frantically checking absolutely every looting spot for fear of missing anything. I’m only looting specifically in and around places of interest, such as boss or quest locations.

 

I’m just done with my introduction to the Brummie Baron. Got some interesting new quests on my radar now.

I've got this on my backlog list for pc, but have been playing other stuff while waiting for news on the next-gen update to come out, so that'll be interesting.

Only other game I can think of to do similar is Metro, so I'm assuming it'll be something like that. Depends on the performance hit tbh.

Christ, the state of CDPR.:blink:

 

I've said this before... the current version of the Witcher 3 is awesome on Xbox Series X. 

It runs at 60 fps, all the time and I think it 4K? It looks amazing, and it a well functioning and mature peice of software. 

 

With the "smart delivery" system, I'm not sure I want CDPR deploying a broken early access version of the "next-gen" game over the top of it!

I'm a good way through this on NG+ having just made a start on a couple of quests from HoS, I'm at level 88 and I'm sad to say I've finally had to retire my Toussaint Knight's Steel Sword. It's done me proudly for so long with it's amazing buffs but the DPS is just too damn weak now and it's taking ages to kill stupid bandits. Sigh.

 

Also I'm not sure if the feline armour was the way to go (currently wearing Superior Legendary) as I seem to die with about three hits, meaning most fights with multiple enemies is an endless case of dodging and Quenning. One the plus side it makes attacks pretty damn strong, so who knows.

 

RIP trusty sword. You shall have pride of place in my Toussaint vineyard.... right at the very very end of the whole damn thing.

I just bought this on Xbox (£6.99 in the sale and will get the next gen upgrade, whenever that comes).

 

Is it confirmed to be 4K in performance mode? I think it uses DRS, and I can’t tell a difference between 4K and performance modes, apart from the frame rate. 
 

I’m tempted to hold off and see if the next gen update lets you import PC saves, but I’ve never completed Blood and Wine and am thinking about doing a standalone run of that. 
 

Funny how a game that I thought was the pinnacle of game graphics is starting to show its age!

For some reason I too double-dipped on this one and picked up the Xbox version too (I'm a strange fellow, as I seem to do this all the time!), but it certainly does look like it's 4k all the way through on a Series X, plus it's effectively locked at 60fps too.

I also bought this for 7 quid on the Xbox. Played through all the base game and the first expansion on PS4.

 

Currently deep in the Bloody Baron quest which is surprisingly early on in the game.

 

Looking forward to the free upgrade when it comes but the loading time difference is already insane.

Maybe, but they’ve been pretty light on detail for what’s in the patch - I’m expecting it to be pretty thin, myself, given how they’ve probably been working flat out on CyberPoo for the last year, but I’d still like to see the updates. It’s been nearly four years - I might as well wait a little longer!
