@wigg I went through exactly the same problem, and I am glad I powered through to the end. The sense of closure is great and the story takes a great turn at the end - I would carry on...

Thanks for the replies! Yes I think I am impatient to start the sequel. I have decided to stick with the first game, but a couple of crashes have severely tested this decision! Also, Fez, Trials Evolution and Steam sales are getting in the way!

Ok, I am currently at the end of chapter 3 of the witcher 1 (via steam). Loving the lore and the world, but am starting to find it a bit of a grind. The quests are sending me back and forth across the map, and the performance is suffering on my machine. I have the second game sat here on the 360 and am wondering if I just move on? Any advice would be appreciated. Gaming time is valuable and at premium so I can't spend hours on end just to see endgame. Shall I just stick to main quest? And so forth... Thank you please!

Just found this thread : Education on your side of the pond (I am an English High School teacher in a British HIgh School) seems both more liberating in terms of choice and approach and also more rigourous and advanced in terms of theory and concepts. High School teaching over here is highly prescribed and results focused, with a huge emphasis on progress via assessment data, schools being garaded via league tables and the dreaded visit of inspectors. An approach that is I and many of my colleagues believe, is detrimental to the actual experience and learning of the students. What you have described in your posts has been almost the complete opposite of my highly pressured and unsatisfyng experience of high school teaching over here in the UK. I am seriously considering leaving the profession; to do what I don't know, but your descriptions give me hope that teaching is'nt like this everywhere. I have some hope...

Found a free Portal soundboard on Android, so my ringtone is 'Still Alive' and text notification is the turret's 'Are you still there?' vocals.

So, just finished the game, and I'm already really looking forward to the usual quality Rockstar DLC. And whilst the case structure of the game lends itself perfectly to a regular drip-feed of bite-sized detective work, I can't help think that the success of Red Dead Undead Nightmare might cause the development team to want to try something similarly off-kilter.  Am I the only one that thinks the 40's setting lends itself perfectly to an alien invasion scenario a la Invasion of the Body Snatchers or similar commy-baiting sci-fi stories? Just a thought, and interested to think what others think about interesting and unusual places this game might be taken...
