I don't mind difficult, I just hate repetitive. I've had a whole week to do what I Iike and the temptation to repeat the same level 20 times didn't arise for one second. I think the Witcher will be much more enjoyable as an open world adventure. I reckon I'll happily get used to the levelling menus if I don't have to spend hours repeating the gameplay. I reckon you must have ranked up to national health glasses and a tank top by now.
Anyway, I can't remember the last time anyone else had my contraption in their hand, so needs must and all that.
