I kind of want to play this....but I know I would never complete a game where the speed run is considered 25 hours and the whole game is 100+ hours. I would play like an hour a week

You would like it. It plays like Farcry in an open world fashion. Do it.

I started this last night, only played about 45 minutes and then I started messing with visuals and spent an hour working on that because i want it to look the best it can on the big tv. I still need to install the mod and I ordered a different 50ft HDMI cable because the one I ordered last month isn't giving me the results I'm expecting.

I went though I think 2 tutorials in my 45 minutes. There is so much stuff on the HUD, it is a lot to talk in at first.

I'm glad I waited to play this until I saw the show, because I would have no idea who anyone is. I still don't know what is going on, but it seems Ciri is missing and I am not with Yennefer, but I have been.

Played some more tonight and messed with settings more. Console gaming is almost better for me because I can't spent so much time twerking. Ended up just doing 1080p on ultra instead of 4K Soni could get 60fps vs 30

The game is so deep. Story. Side quests. Combat. Magic. Skills. Food. Health. Shopping. Selling. Blacksmiths skill trees. Leveling. A card game within the game. It's all very overwhelming. I hope they explain things multiple times.

For magic I've been sticking to the force power the most. Can clear debris and go into more buildings.

Sarah would be the one to discuss this game with. She has around 100+ hours in it. I lasted about 15

I did my first side quest and had to look it up online. I didn't realize some events were triggered based on the time of day and had to learn how to mediate.

Also, I can't stress enough how complex this game is compared to what I usually play. Every 30 minutes I'm exposed to a new tutorial and mechanic that I instsntly forget.

I used my first skill point so my food recharges health for 20 minutes instead of 5 seconds. My boss told me to do that. I haven't used my other points yet because I'm scared to spend them wrong.

There is a potion (clearance) that lets you respec if you mess it up.

Yeah I bought Wild Hunt when it was on sale last week or whenever. Played just a little bit the other night, so not very far. Just picked up a contract to kill a griffin. I ended up stopping when I randomly died while walking around and apparently bees were attacking me or something. It's fun so far but like you said, there are a lot of game mechanics and tutorials.

I just killed the Griffin, but I did 3 or 4 side quests before I did that main story part.
