Oooh, that actually sounds interesting! After I replay Witcher III (and actually finish it this time) I want to read some more of the books.

I thought it was set even before Witcher 1, I have had my eye on it but just waiting for a sale and when I've not a got a lot to play.

You might be right. I just know it's based a time span outside of my knowledge. The only real beef I have with the game is that the map doesn't have any text on it. So, characters will say - oh this is in Ratsburg - but you can't just see a Ratsburg on the map, nor is there a symbol for it. This isn't a problem when you're going through the story until you reach the end of a chapter. At that point the game says, "Yo you've found X/10 chests, X/3 unique cards found" etc. And it's like the game is letting you know you missed a load of stuff, but you going back is a bit disorientating.

That said, there is an upgrade you can build for your warcamp that marks locations on the map. I feel like it just means loot by this, but maybe once I buy that upgrade it'll help me out.

I feel like it will run just fine on your laptop whenever you get it back so feel free to access it via Steamshare. The game sometimes runs slow when the AI is having a think about what card to play next, but otherwise I think it should run on well on most devices. You move around the map by doing a point and click, but I'm sure you could plug in a ps4 pad and it'd take to it just fine.

Digimon Cyber Sleuth.

A little over 8 hours into it and it's seeming like the Digimon title I've always wanted, and its gone places I didn't expect. There's a sidequest where you meet a straight-up non-binary person and they criticise how the game's online world funnels them into choosing either boy or girl. Also the casual gay representation/acknowledgement, not making it out like it's a joke or some kink - a pleasant surprise from a Japanese anime-tropey game (although of course, not the only one of its kind).

Moving on though, as while all that's nice, what I mainly like about the game is how functional it is as a game while having the Digimon trappings. I know Digimon World has its fans but I really didn't find it fun training them (crappy training and battle mechanics) only to have them die after some time because of some mistakes I didn't foresee. And even if I raised them well they wouldn't live for that long anyway. That's the formula for World and games later on in the series which ape its style. The games that aren't World-style generally aren't great either.

Here they swap that out for admittedly standard JRPG turn-based mechanics and level-up structure but it's not bad at all. It's really satisfying collecting the Digimon and then evolving them, with multiple routes that are mapped out with listed requirements. As well as the human characters, the digimon look great and all the cool ones are here from the shows you watched way back when (as well as the others probably). This game isn't exactly graphically impressive for the PS4 which is what it was made for, but the aesthetic is nice and you can crank it all the way up to 4K here and it looks rather good.

I've tempered my enthusiasm a bit though, as I'm not sure how I'll feel about this game in the long haul. Have been enjoying the look of the game, as well as the music and generally the story and writing, but did feel that so far I've been retreading the same ground a lot and a fair bit of it did just seem like busywork. Getting the sense that the rest of the game may be a bit like that as well. But I've not begun to tire of the gameplay, and story developments/sidequests are keeping me interested, so we'll see.

Cyber Sleuth is great, but Hard mode is super imbalanced and it killed my playthrough when I refused to drop the difficulty down after hitting a brick wall of a boss. Don't repeat my mistakes!

I started off on Normal but it did seem a tad easy so I switched to Hard and it does make the boss battles a good amount engaging. It's nice that you can toggle the difficulty and that Hard is incentivised by giving your more/better rewards, but yeah I'm okay with lowering it if I have to.
