Well i’m one of those people that plays all their games on the hardest difficulty, starting from the first time they get em. I’m currently making Let’s play videos of a Fallout 4 survival playthrough (No deaths so far.) But I have been having an urge to play witcher 3
One thing about witcher 3 is that it has long horse rides, and extensive conversations. I can theoretically cut the horse rides out, and only show the exciting parts. But what about the conversations? Would it be the perfect let’s play viewing experience. Or would watching someone pick dialogue options with live dialogue be obnoxious? Should I cut out the cinematics too, and only show the action?
I know that an uncut live commentary video would have long dull spots and that worries me. But I really want to show people that this game is totally beatable, even on the highest difficulty. And that by playing on the highest difficulty you get the most out of the game, in that it forces you to use all of the options to maximize and optimize your character. I never experience witcher 3 until I played it on the hardest difficulty.
Just like I thought fallout 4 was bloated until I played it on survival. After playing it on survival the whole game makes sense. All those random bethesda items that never had any use; they all get churned into resources through scrapping. All that random food that healed you; well you have to not starve. It even adds dynamics like filling water bottles with water!.
Sorry I got on a rant. Just having a battle between the video game escapism me. And the me that feels compelled to record and upload everything that I play. BTW the ideal situation would be just to stream it, but my peasant internet won’t allow me to upload a smooth stream. And i’m buying the highest tear of internet available for non-corporations in my area.
