The Bloedzuiger‘s habit of releasing a toxic cloud of acid upon demise that not only wounds the Witcher, but every other monster within range, is not a particularly strong Darwinian survival tactic – particularly since it will wound other Bloedzuigers. You’d think that these things would be able to handle their own stomach reagents.
Also: The Witcher is fun, but it’s also kind of messed up in the head in some ways. How’s the sequel? – Not that I’m probably not going to buy it anyway.
…which is thankfully getting a whole lot less pound-my-head-against-a-wall, now that I understand a little better how to do combat. Overall, pretty fun: the Central/Eastern Europe 17th century vibe is very good, but there are issues with combat being sticky. Also, I’m already lost in the plot and it’s only Act 2. Bottom line: having fun, will play the sequel if they’ve really fixed the quirks in this one, but I wish that Mass Effect 3 hadn’t been delayed three months.
Did it suck? It seems to have gotten strong reactions, both pro and con.
Hey, I figure that Dragon Age 2 won’t last me until Mass Effect 3* comes out.
