According to yesterday’s story at Eurogamer, CD Projekt’s Senior Producer on Witcher 2, Tomasz Gop, has said they’re looking at easing up on the difficulty curve for the 360 version of the game (with some of those tweaks also being made available on PC). I’m good with that. On Normal the game is certainly playable, but it can be a real bear, even punitive at times, especially where some of the boss battles are concerned. A few weeks ago, on Jumping the Shark, I even noted that I’d like to see a difficulty mode put in between Normal and Easy because Easy is simple to the point of mindlessness. So what did Gop have to say?
“Definitely we are thinking about the easy mode. It should be easy.”
Guys, I applaud the thought, but if you made Easy mode any less difficult my cat could play the game and she’s been dead for three years.
