    I did medium with no disasters just so I could learn the game. I also had a lot of people (mostly kids) die in winter 3 or 4 after my initial food ran out. I started with a lot of farming which didn't provide enough food. I should of focused on gathering and hunting. Also gotta learn how to herd, built a pen but never got any animals.

    Hard doesn't start with seeds or animals, so I still haven't been able to get crops or herds going. The only way you can get seeds is to trade for them, but the merchants haven't brought any to sell yet. My mistake was making too many houses and a store house before building the fishery. The fishery is great once it gets going. I've now got a hunting lodge that easily supplements the fishery. Gathering is nice too. You can start a brewery one a gathering hut is made since they bring back berries.

    I never played the Witcher series or Dragon Age. Are they worth picking up? It looks like Witcher 2 and Dragon Age origins are on sale still?

    Both Witcher games are awesome. Can't recommend them enough. DA:O was pretty good too, I'd give it a thumbs-up as well.

    I never beat the first Witcher, but the second one was great although a little linear. The story was decent if not a bit generic. I'd think you'd get more play time out of DA especially if you get Awakening too. IMO the Awakening expansion was better than the proper game. Get them both and you'll get a ton of great RPG gaming for cheap.

    Linear? You need to stop dropping tabs before playing games bro because you're tripping. By selective saving I was able to have around 8 different ending to the Witcher 2, linear it is not.

    Both Witcher games and indeed both Dragon Age games are worthy of your time, regardless of what all the DA2 haters like to spew...



    Varric made the game a treat to play.

    I played Witcher 1. It was good but my biggest complaint is the complete lack of items. There are no weapons and you don't get armor until the very end of the game.
    I have Witcher 2 but have not played it yet. I wouldn't bother getting any of the Witcher games from Steam. Both 1 and 2 and the upcoming 3 are all available on GOG.com
    DRM free.

    You didn't need more than those, witcher is NOT a loot based game. It is a story driven game.

    Don't forget the potions! I found a big part of The Witcher was planning out what potions to use to give you a tactical advantage.
