Finished Witcher 3 main story a while back now and subsequently bought the two main DLC's Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. Played through HoS straight after finishing Wild Hunt and for the extra bits of story and opening up of the map a little it was well worth the discounted price i paid for it. Blood and Wine however, is like a full game in itself and well worth the full £20 it retailed for, and an absolute steal for the £10 i got for on the PSN store Deals.
I really took my time playing through it all, all the side quests (apart from many of the Skelige sunken ship treasure hunts, ain't nobody got time for them. And most of the Gwent quests, which few people have time for) all the armour plans, all the question mark map location quests etc, just soaking it all in and immersing myself in that world.
Knowing that Blood and Wine would be the last i could squeeze out of the game i took my time even more with that. Unfortunately, CD Projekt Red in their infinite wisdom decided that the middle of December would be a good time to patch and fix several glitches that stopped many players from finishing certain quests - only seven years after it's initial release even though fans have been waiting all that time for the fixes. This was all well and good, but coincided with me embarking on the final boss fight grand finale and not allowing me to save at any point between starting the quest and actually fighting the boss, which is a good half hour of mid-quests, highly constrained fighting sections and cut scenes. Oh so many cut scenes.....! Because this bit is so scripted, there are few oppotunities to save progress. When i have saved to come back to later, it takes me back to the very start of that main quest, even though i had saved it just before the final fight. It is a very tough fight too, even with a fully levelled up Geralt.
This patch seems to have ballsed the game up. Everytime i load it up it's like i've loaded it for the first time. It makes me re-set the screen boundaries and adjust the contrast level. I really want to finish it but have run out of patience having to do the whole final quest from the start every time. Thanks, CD Projekt Red!
