Lovely shots, Ad.

This feels like it could be the start of another mission... something similar to your Demon's Souls adventure... another journey to mend a broken world :datass: .

I'm really enjoying the world. Only in the second area, looking for ciri and I've had a fist fight with the blood baron.

Third area Skellige is my favourite, stunning vistas and snow in some parts.

What a stunning game this was. Who’s going to replay this before the generation is up? The 4k update on the ps4 pro definitely makes me want to!

I fancy returning to this and playing the DLC (finished The Wild Hunt about 18 months ago), But i know it will pop up in a sale the day after i purchase it..... Maybe i should boot it up and mop up a few side quests to refamiliarise myself with the controls (and more importantly, Gwent).

I'm currently a ways into Blood and Wine and as lovely as Tussaint is I keep pining for Skellige. I haven't explored half the islands yet, and the music in that whole map is just lovely.

X1X update apparently up now with a performance mode which puts it at 60fps.

I finished a long quest line last night, the one to find the bloody baron's family and it had a really dark outcome (in the end you find him hanging from a tree having topped himself). The game then told me all the decisions i'd made up to then which lead to that moment :dread: It's great that it does that and was really unexpected as i'm used to bethesda games having no meaningful consequence to anything, but it does mean i've got to actually start thinking my actions through.

Yeah sure, unleash this evil tree thing in to a horse to murder everyone, what could go wrong? :lol:

Walking into that city is one of my favourite moments in any game.

Yeah Novigrad is a stunning achievement, as are most of the towns and villages in the game.

It's kind of embarrassing what other games think they can get away with for their populated areas in a post-Witcher 3 world, some of the smallest villages in this game put the main "cities" in a Bethesda RPG to shame.

The Witcher 3 is one of the few games where I will enter a city or town and choose to make my character walk or my horse trot rather than run just to soak in the experience.

Not a bad video and some genuinely funny descriptions but you picked on Andromeda for cut scenes and animation, Unity on bugs and Shadow of Wars loot system....I mean, most games compared to those are going to come out on top in those situations.

Lots of quests in Fallout 4 have different endings depending on choices but not main quest lines I suppose... still a little misleading.

Do you think 2 is better than Witcher 3?
