So I'm expecting The Witcher 2 to appear sometime tomorrow as LoveFilm claims to be dispatching today. Pretty much every source I've read extols the fact that the game can be really challenging if you don't know what you're doing and the upgrade system is massively complicated.
I expect a lot of people are in the same situation as I am, experiencing the game for the first time when it comes to the Xbox. As such, we could do with a primer to prepare us. What sort of upgrades should we look at in the early going? What sort of crafting items should we be picking up and using? Is it advisable to play on easy or would this significantly detract from the experience.
I understand that there probably isn't one set way to play The Witcher, and that everyone probably has their own way of doing things but any advice that might avoid unnecessary frustration would be much appreciated.
