Re: What are you playing right now?

Started playing The Witcher 2 and it's a incredibly pretty game. It's also very cinematic and so far way better than the first part. The combat is a bit weird. I heard the comparison with Demon's Souls but it didn't remind me at DS at all due to the lack of a shield. What almost stopped me playing right away was the tutorial or lack thereof. I died multiple times because the game didn't feel it necessary to show/tell me how to fight, brew potions, craft items or anything else. I think I died more in the first hour of Witcher than I did in the first 3 hours of demon's souls. Now that I figured out how the combat works and that the way to go is run like a german sheperd dog around a herd of sheep, making hit-and-run attacks it's pretty easy.
