They said they're working on it but it may not be ready for the next patch.

I am really enjoying this game and I haven't been bothered by the fonts at all. The game is BRUTALLY hard on the hardest difficulty, but I am really enjoying it. You have to work hard to use the proper magic and attack strategy, or you will die quickly and repeatedly.

I decided to play on Hard and see if I can tackle the hardest difficulty later. Haven't really gotten a great feel for the combat, enemy attack patterns can be unpredictable and Geralt's movements throw me off.

You have to get used to locking onto enemies and dodging. I have found that you can't really parry monster attacks, so it is best to dodge. You can parry against humans and sometimes get a quick retaliation, but the monsters still hurt you. If you can lock onto the enemy and spin behind them, you can get extra damage from an attack from behind.

Quen helps quite a lot, and it is a great combination with Yrden. Still, it is incredibly difficult at times... I have even been killed by wolf packs that are 5 levels lower than my character. They surround you and attack from the rear.

Anyone actually play Gwent in this? I've been picking up cards but other then the tutorial games I'm finding it impossible to win even though I've been buying every card I can find. The last guy I played in Novigard had a deck that basically let him pull every single card of a certain type out of his deck if he played one card and it was beyond retarded.

I messed around with it a bit, since I love card games in general. I've found that counter-play works better for me than trying to be aggressive. Also, I like to set up the AI to over-play the first round and then I concede, which gives me an advantage in the next two rounds, since I typically have a better reserve of cards at that point.
