  1. One of my favourites of the last few years and have been meaning to dip back in.
  2. Thee's definitely no microtransactions, but maybe they're hoping to lure some people in to Gwent? I'm on my fourth run, managed to beat the first boss on my third. I like it, but then I'm familiar with Gwent mechanics from the standalone game so there wasn't too much learning curve. It probably won't keep me as interested as Thronebreaker did, the story in that was superb and I enjoyed the exploration asepcts.
  3. Another standalone Gwent game has luanched today - Gwent: Rogue Mage. If you enjoyed Thronebreaker you should enjoy this. It has Slay The Spire-style progression, moving from node to node battling, making decisions in encounters and upgrading your units / deck en-route to the final boss. It's £7.50 on GoG (£15 for the deluxe), also avaible on Steam. Maybe this warrants it's own topic? I'm not sure. I know standalone Gwent wasn't a big hit around here but I know plenty enjoyed Thronebreaker.
  4. I remember being particularly excited about us signing Anthony Le Tallac and Florent Sinama Pongolle, I must have been into Football Manager at the time
  5. It's 5 in game hours, not 5 hours of it on your system.

  7. I usually don't game too much over Christmas but this year I'll be doing some Goose Game co-op with the missus. HONK!
  8. It's most definitely a book adaptation, and there's an incredible amount of stories to tell before we get near the events of the Witcher 3.
  9. I'm a little confused at some of the deviations from the books, but I'm sure there's a larger plan and some good reason for them. Despite that, I found season 2 to be great and it's all set up nicely for a lot of exciting events now. I thought Triss was a revelation in this and a big turnaround from season 1, lifted straight out of the books. Sooo many great characters still to come... I really hope they get to see the saga through to it's conclsuion.
  10. I'm amazed there's no option to turn off / limit the combat dialogue, if there's one thing that's going to stop me playing, it is that.
  11. There's some incredibly exotic monsties to use in this, but my go to is Barry the Jade Barroth, whose kinship skill is to turn into a massive show shovel and fling a giant snowball at the monster you're fighting I don't need any others.
  12. Been playing this a lot over the last few days... it's pretty good! I had some reservations initially, I found the contrast in the presentation a bit jarring (amazing cut scenes, character models and battle animation and effects, but poor environments), but I've grown used to it. The repetitive areas and dens were also concerning but I'm hooked enough on the combat and monstie nurturing that that barely bothers me anymore either (I use a stealthy monstie and sneak through a lot of them). I thought I'd struggle not being a big Monster Hunter fan (I enjoyed World and played Rise briefly) and therefore not knowing many of the monsters but that hasn't been a problem, I'd imagine series fans will get more out of that aspect than I have still. The battle system is great, the weapon type and rock-paper-scissors attack type systems work really well in an RPG, and there is plenty of variety in monsters and their shifting attack patterns to keep it interesting. Breaking a monster part and knocking them down will never get boring, and the attack animations are absoloutely gorgeous
