Is The Witcher 1 worth playing? - Page 5

Am I the only one who felt that fallout new Vegas fell kinda short and was not that good. Even the DLC is decent.

If you're only playing the storyline quests, you're doing it wrong. Fallout is a massive world that's meant to be explored; the storyline only covers a small part of it.

Back on topic about The Witcher, I bought the "Enhanced Edition" for a mere $12 on May 16th, a day before The Witcher 2 came out. I heard of it before, but was never really interested in it until I saw trailers for The Witcher 2.

I just finished my first playthrough of it on May 25th and I thought it was a fantastic game. There's a lot of story to the game, but combat is still important. You could certainly focus on completing the main quests, but you can get so much more out of the story if you do the side quests that are available (and there are many). I put in about 60 hours into the game in the week and a half that I have had the game.

As for the combat, I've read many opinions on it. Some think it's too simple and others find it so complicated that they give up on the game. I think the combat system is simple to pick up and one could easily go through the entire game with just the basics. Even if you are leveled enough, it is still very possible to die if you think you can run into a large group of enemies, even if you can usually handle them with ease one-on-one.

If it weren't for the fact that The Witcher 2 already came out, I would likely play through this again. I placed my order for The Witcher 2 through Amazon the day I finished the first one and it's due to arrive today (May 27th).

Worth it? Yeah.

Eh, I the game is good as far as I know from the demo, but the combat system really sucks. Pretty much click on enemy and it auto attacks and you right click when the cursor is on fire for combo, it's really boring. I hear Witcher 2's combat system is more fast paced though.

You simply buy from GoG, download and thats it. No DRM, no GoG launcher, nothing.

Its a fantastic service and how I bought TW2. Will definitely be using it again. GoG > Steam
what will i dl? i mean, can i transfer the files that i downloaded from gog to an another computer to play?
i want to benefit from my company connection rather then download from home connection...

Hehe, half joking. I've probably spent more time installing mods and getting the damn thing to work, but when it does work, it's a thing of beauty.

No, most people feel the same way, but you're all doing it wrong. If you play New Vegas the "right" way, i.e. wander in random directions without a quest and just run into things, it's much more fun than FO3. In FO3 you just run into subway stations and radio towers, whereas NV has actual settlements with cool stuff to do.
