Damn what a ride. I picked Roche's path through the story. Really makes me want to play through again to see how the story unfolds going the other route.

But yeah.. LIKE A BOSS! When I play through again, it will NOT be on Dark mode. There's a 2nd MUCH more powerful set of armor/swords in Chapter 3 but aside from the main armor piece, the rest aren't much better than the other stuff you can get. The swords are a tad stronger but only by a couple points more than the sword you get on the gargoyle contract and Caerme which is readily available to craft.

I enjoyed the Iorveth path the best. There was more to do.

Some screenshots I took during the adventure. I'll post the link only for the ones that I feel give away plot.

Fantastic screens FRPC!

I have to get off my tail and play 2.0. There are at least 2 screens I don't recognize at all, and I played through twice.

The one I posted above and Gerault standing overlooking the circle with the pillar in the middle. I can't for the life of me remember either.

It could be a senior moment too

I just finished the tutorial and I'm starting this one over, 2.0 is very nice. This game has great graphics and amazing textures.

EDIT: For those late to the party, try it with the 360 controller. So much better.

The one with the pillar was towards the end of "the curse" in chapter 2. The one with the dead chick by the water was from one of the side quests in chapter 2 as well with the 3 sisters. It's easy to miss as you have to talk to a specific solider in the camp to get it. If you pick the right actions later into that quest, you eventually can end up with arguably the best steel sword in the game.

Nice, thanks for the tips! Looking forward to playing this again now.

A few things I don't like are the LOD and drawn distance in this game. Foliage popup and some object distance, like the store objects have terrible draw distance. Clearly it was going to be ported to consoles but a DX11 patch would have been nice for deferred AA and such, not MLAA.

At least they did a great job on the PC version first and it just shows what PC game should look like, rather than the low quality graphics we get with console ports.
