I'm curious as to how much Michael Moorcook would make in royalties.

I've been playing GWENT this week. The interface and the cards are all really beautiful.

Orb of Lightning

I still get hung up on the pretense that Gwent is an ancient dwarven card game. It holds absolutely zero waters in the context of its cards, and the fact that there's a new deck being developed in Frenchy Land. It suspends my disbelief a tad too far.

Still, a good bit of fun. I do prefer the interface and graphics of the one in-game to the one on GOG, though.

RE: Witcher 2

Does it bother anyone else that the path that makes the most narrative sense (going with Roche to find the kingslayer) is kind of a miserable drag with nothing really interesting going on, while the one that makes remarkably little narrative sense (going with the elf terrorist to... make a political point? Is this even the real Geralt?) actually turns out not only to be more interesting and rewarding but also to reveal more of the story's more important points and elements?
