Yup, quicksave is your friend. Though if I recall right Witcher has kind of a shitty quicksave system that just makes a new one every time.

Edit: Huh, they got Charles Dance(Tywin Lannister) as the Emperor of Nilfgaard.

This. I was unaware of it until I got a fuckton of quicksaves and every time I set to load it took forever.

Yeah, the loading of a quicksave takes ages as well. The death screens are innately frustrating.

I enjoyed the story and the pace, but these little things kept making it a bore in some parts. Thankfully you could change the difficulty from the Esc menu. Except if you're playing Dark Mode, then you can't revert back to it anymore.

Just delete them. Works wonders.

Eh, I actually like the fact that quicksaves don't overwrite each other.
Also, I got to Flotsam and restarted on Normal difficulty. This combat system just isn't good enough to support the Dark Mode difficulty.
I don't see you complaining about Mount and Blade.
He is super-witty.
Sleeping just for the sake of sleep isn't sufficient to warrant sleeping.

I think the combat is fine, though I start lagging in certain areas due to the massive specs of the game. What they can do about it is smoothen these rough spots that have been noticed in the game.

As others have said, it's only around Flotsam that the combat is actually anywhere near challenging. After that it's a cakewalk.

So that's why I struggled a tonne to do anything. >.>

Screaming bloody murder, with their heads on fire.
There just may be a chance for me.
My sweet insanity.

Yeah. My first playthrough was on Normal. I spent the first half of Flotsam pretty much just shitting myself and running away from everything. During the latter half of chapter 2 I was just casually swatting hordes of enemies like I was attacked by a horde of angry wereballoons.

The fact that it's challenging isn't the problem, it's that it's clunky. I already talked about being unable to hit anything if a target indicator isn't present on the screen. Another problem I discovered since then is that Geralt has different moves that he does apparently at random. Sometimes the weak attack button makes him do a nice quick lunge that's perfect for striking from a distance before rolling away to safety again. Other times it makes him do a ******** pirouette that takes forever and during which he's very easy to hit. And it's apparently random which one he does. I absolutely detest that. If being hit once takes me down to 5% HP, I need to be sure what my character's going to do when I press a particular button.

Hmm yeah, Geralt's dance moves sometimes do get rather annoying.

True. At least you could perfectly predict what you were going to do in the first Witcher. Before you unlocked new parts of the attack chains it could look a little weird, though. :lol: Repeating the same move but faster is kind of comical.

Since I started reading the books I feel that I definitely saw a few inspirations for things featured in the two games. But oh boy do I wish for them to include this lovely bit in some form:
So Dandelion frees a djinn, Geralt gets the to have the wishes, unbeknownst to them. And thus he unwittingly wishes for the Djinn to "piss off and **** yourself", which leaves the poor thing with no choice but to obey :lol:
Was laughing way too hard about that when it became clear in the story, heh.

Oh, the second wish, unwittingly still, is "I hope you explode/burst you son of a bitch" said to a guard.
Did I mention that technically it's a love story? :lol:

Emperor of Nilfgaard is an intriguing fellow as a character, Charles Dance might give him the nobility, albeit I don't know if he'd be that old as Geralt.
