This is where you can read any of my irregular wafflings about computer gaming. The whole point of this blog is to help motivate me to properly finish games, whether they be recent ones or older ones I played when I was younger that I never managed to beat.
3rd December 2013 - Scratching A Witch
I just got done with the Witcher after a three day marathon, and I have to say I'm very glad it's over. The game was a drag and a half. I continued to get plagued by all the problems I stated in my last blog entry, with one very big addition: the amount of times the fighting would be interrupted by a cutscene, only to then put me back into the action completely surrounded by enemies and without my sword being ready. Damn you, game!
Story wise the game was pretty cool, but does take a twist that really annoys me in games. You spend the whole game chasing the big bad who is called Javed, but then when he's dead the game springs a new big bad on you out of nowhere. This kind of thing has always cheesed me off since I played Final Fantasy IX with the weird appearance of Necron. Frustrating, but at least it's done.
I think it will take me a while to summon up the interest to play the 2nd game, which I hope will be much better than this tosh. The 3rd one is on the way, and I really want a reason to support the developers for their no DRM policy. But if the 2nd one is as poor as this one I doubt I'll be buying any more in the series, which will be a shame.

The start and end cinematics are by far the best things about this game
