Planning on grabbing a game this weekend. My 1st option is the witcher 3, and my 2nd is Pokemon. Let me say first, I havent played a game in either series yet.

For TW3: I really need some help on information regarding this game. I REALLY want to try it out, but I've read some mixed information online regarding the difficulty. When a game is so brutally difficult, I tend to get too frustrated and end up quitting the game( dark souls was this game for me). Dark souls was so relentless to me that after 8-10 hours of playing and only feeling like i moved inches, it was a huge turn off. I dont mind hard games, as long as they're fair. Heck, I've beaten zelda 2 multiple times and even a couple times not using save states at all ūüėú. Cuphead is hard, but fair and I've persevered. My question is.. is the difficulty unfair, relentless, punishing, and do you waste time after dying trekking thru what you just accomplished to get back to that point where you died? Or are you able to save often? Really hoping you can save often as it makes dying, much more manageable. Please let me know as this is my first choice on my next game.

Then there's pokemon sw/sh. I read theres not really a tutorial. As a newbee, will i be completely be lost as what to do or where to go? Or is it pretty basic and easy to understand? Thanks in advance for anyone's thoughts and responses.

@NintendoByNature You can select your difficulty in The Witcher 3. I'm playing on the second or third difficulty setting, I think, and I almost never die. It's not challenging unless you deliberately choose an extreme level of difficulty to play on.

Also, you should be able to save almost anywhere in The Witcher 3, so there's no reason to ever lose significant amounts of progress.

It's a fantastic game.

As to Pokemon, there are tutorials. You just have the option to skip them if you show that you know what you're doing. For example, if you choose to use an attack that your enemy's Pokemon is elementally weak to in the first battle, it'll skip the lecture about type advantage.

I'm enjoying Pokemon so far, but TW3 is better, so I'd recommend that.

@Ralizah I'm on the second level and I've died like, 20 times in the 2 hours I've played. It's not quite as easy as you make it sound. Those ghoul things are tough and chunk out over half your health if you take a single hit.

@link3710 If you're finding the game difficult, I recommend investing skill points into the Quen sign. Especially the Exploding Shield and Active Shield skills, which trivialize most encounters in the game, I've found.

Anyway, I've had almost no trouble with the game. It's certainly not even in the same ballpark as Dark Souls. If he can best brutal games like Cuphead and Zelda 2, I can't imagine Witcher 3 posing much of an issue for him.

@Ralizah thanks. At least that's reassuring. I may start out at a Lower difficulty honestly to get the hang of it. Think the purchase might have to wait til December 1st though. Just checked the funds for next two weeks ūüė£.
@Anti-Matter thanks for the video. I think witcher 3 might be a little more my style. But maybe ill give Pokemon a try down the road.

@Ralizah Good to know! I haven't earned a single skill point yet honestly, but I'm sure I'll manage sooner or later. And yeah, I have zero trouble with Cuphead myself, I think I'm just missing something still in this game.

What do you mean, 2nd level of Witcher 3, @link3710 .... ? You apparently haven't levelled up yet & can't have found any points of power
Where, exactly, are you?

Once you learn the passive that lets you deflect arrow bolts and you learn the spell that absorbs one physical attack from an enemy, TW3 combat becomes boringly easy. No more difficult than combat in the Batman Arkham series or Assassin's Creed. Attack, dodge, attack, counter, attack, dodge, attack, counter....

@Magician very good. I actually love the combat in ac and arkham games. Guess I'll catch on pretty easily( im hoping)

@NintendoByNature
Yea, I would sum up at the combat as...fun, but personally I'm done with it at like the 40-hour mark lol But yea, it's that typical attack/roll/map spells to buttons kind of combat.

@rallydefault I hear ya. I'm usually done with every game by the 40 hr Mark anyway haha. That's my only concern getting into this game, is that it'll be a real time sink.

I enjoy the combat, personally. It's very simple, but forces you to pay attention to enemy movement patterns.

Like Monster Hunter or Souls, but very streamlined and not nearly as challenging.

@BruceCM okay, so you know where you start off and get to ride your horse? This ghoul attacks you as you run along the path. I've come close to killing it twice now (it takes like, 20 hits), just gotta dive back in and I should manage it.

I didn‚Äôt find the ‚Äúblock crossbow arrows‚ÄĚ skill very useful. Rarely am I involved in fights where I‚Äôm getting shot at with arrows. And when I am I very easily dodge them or kill the person soon after. Decided to go for more weighty skills like undying so your adrenaline refills your life if you ‚Äúdie‚ÄĚ and the food one, where any food item refills your life for 30 minutes.

Started Pokémon. It’s fantastic so far, game looks so crisp and clean. Man it feels good to upgrade from the 3DS. Basically feels like how Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate felt after playing 1,000 hrs on the 3DS.

Interesting insight about AC3, thanks guys. Also speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder why Watch_Dogs hasn’t been ported over yet, it was on the WIIU. I, for one enjoyed that title unlike many, but I always enjoy a solid title on the go.

The 1st monsters I remember are about 5 ghouls, @link3710 ... They each die in 3 or 4 hits & Vesemmir is helping you
Maybe adjust difficulty down? You can readjust it later, when you're more familiar with the game Otherwise, Axii basically stuns enemies for a few seconds, which should help. Or learn to avoid it's attacks?

@SuperSpaghetti
I liked Watch Dogs, too. I played it on... my Xbox, I think? I don't even remember, but it was a solid game. Had a slightly different twist on all the open-world stuff. Haven't played the second one, though.

Anybody here watch Worth a Buy on YouTube? He mostly does PC games, but I like him. He can brutal, though, but his preferences seem to match up with mine: a bit jaded against open-world, climb-the-tower type games. Anyway, when Witcher III came out, he railed against the combat. Had some funny clips of him just rolling around constantly and the enemy AI acting pretty dumb trying to hit him. Said it was on the hardest difficulty, too lol
