I haven't played the first game. Only had a go at the second installment. I didn't use much of alchemy which made battles more challenging but also more fun. To be perfectly honest though, the only reason i didn't use it was because i kept forgetting! If they go with the same balance in the game, I would say you won't have to worry too much about it. The new big feature in Witcher 3 is the open world system which is new to the series and which I am quite excited about. Hopefully they will find a good balance for quests and loot- especially loot variety which i usually find very lacking in most games in this category. Usually too much focus is geared towards questing which gets old quite quickly if there isn't some great treasure at the end of it.
Dark Souls had a really awful PC port if you wanted to use mouse and keyboard. I used my ps3 controller so it was all good.
But yes, its successor is being treated with much more care on all platforms.
Ya, no release date confirmed as yet. However all interviews I have watched as of now regarding the game and the developers point to a 2014 release date. I'm not too bothered if it gets delayed to be honest. Dark souls 2 is the one I am really looking forward to.
I thought at the very least Diablo himself would do the honor. But alas, it was that stupid butterfly woman who i can't even remember the name of.....given the story line was that lowbrow.
Regardless of my bias I think you will find most sport scientists agree with me.
I know it's popular and widely accepted but I can't write a paper on based on the popularity of said exercise. I was looking for evidence for and against to consider.
I understand the rationale behind and I do quite a bit of core workout as well but subjective experiences can only get you so far on an assignment.
As for D3, i canceled my pre-order. Will play the game sometime in July/August after I complete my summer internship(like a boss). I know one of my friends who opted out of applying for the internship just so they can focus on playing the game. lol. I've waited for so long already and intentionally skipped beta, so a few more months should be no biggie.
I'm still going to be ecstatic on the 15th- because most importantly the wait is officially over and I can get the game whenever I want.
