Novigrad still blows me away almost three years after the game's release. I quite often hear people say that they felt the game gets tedious in Novigrad but I couldn't disagree more, the underworld plots and addition of more light-hearted content made it such a welcome change from the famine and relentless oppressiveness of Velen.

The effortless tonal shifts are what set Witcher 3 apart from most other RPGs, and stop a several hundred hour game from becoming stale.

Just hit 41 hours play time and I swear 20 of that has been in the city of novigrad alone and I'm STILL questing there :lol:

*find a boat bound for Skelliage* Ok I'll finally do tha tonight and move on and oh, oh what, a smell of rotting human flesh, *another quest* Right. That one is done. Back to what I was doing. *find a boat bound for Skelliage* Nearly at the dock now, I'll go and sell some crap in this book shop. What, someone has left a book for me? Who would do that? *another quest*. Right now I'm DEFINITELY going to the dock. *find a boat bound for Skelliage* What's that, a play? You want me to help write it? *aaaaanooooothereerrrrrrr queeeeeest*

Give it another 20 and I might get out of this city :wub:

I actually got city fatigue in Novigrad and had to get back out into the woods. I don't think that's ever happened to me in a videogame before.

I thought that section was better than all of Skyrim.

I think my eyeballs were so impressed my ears didn’t process the music. Skellige is one of the most impressive areas in modern gaming sans the norn Iron accents.

After getting a little tired of the Sunny DLC area I started a New Game +. I’m really enjoying it with the new graphical fidelity coupled with the smooth framerate. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Just killed the Griffin, it’s good to be back. :datass:

Just finished the base game and started hearts of stone. strawberry floating loved everything in the main game. The end sequence was suitably epic feeling. HoS starts off great so far too.

HoS has my favourite mission in the entire game, and possibly of any RPG ever. It's strawberry floating brill.

See, I missed that as I told her to have a drink and she threw up on Geralt as they were getting down to it.
