It just keeps going and going and going! I had to put it down after ~150 hours in, and then do something else. In the preceding months I went back and platinum-ed Sleeping Dogs: The Definitive Edition. We've spilled a lot of electrons praising this game, and if you haven't opted in yet then there's not a whole lot more we can do for you.

Also a pleasant surprise: Ratchet & Clank on the PS4! I came late to their intergalactic adventures (being a Sly Cooper fan), but their games were some of my favorites on the PS2 & PS3. The blend of platforming and action is superb, but it's the tongue in cheek humor is where they really shine.

At 40 bucks it's well worth the money and not quite the time sink that The Witcher is. You can probably beat the main campaign in around five hours.

You can avoid the movie though. It wasn't very good. What could have been a great introduction for the general populace was, instead, very middling.

Most recently? Rise of the Tomb Raider. Is it still a terrible title? Yes. Absolutely. But there are some great ideas contained therein. The Syria level was great -- much better than Drake's Deception -- but they really, really need to get a handle on the narrative aspect of the game. It's cringe worthy at times. I just made it to the... third area. Will be interested in seeing how everything plays out this time around.

Currently occupied with Gwent: The Witcher Card Game.

I was accepted into the beta a couple of weeks back and have been playing nightly. Until Nilfgaard comes online I've been running a slightly modified Northern Realms starter deck. I manage to win about half the time, but I think I could manage to do better with some further adjustments.
