I am really enjoying this, it checks all the boxes for me:

Exploring
Loot
Enough side quests, but not overwhelming
Decent companions

I am a level 16 fighter now, but have been hoarding all my points. I would say definitely take at least 1 in Charisma, then get a cape with +1 ASAP. This gives you a 75% chance of success on most dialogues. I hate to miss out on chests, but so far have only seen one with good loot. I have 2 talent points in reserve, so if I come upon a +3 lockpick chest, I save then put 2 points in lockpick in order to examine the contents. So far I have seen nothing that makes me want to spend the points. And the loot remains static after repeated loads.

I also love upgrading my equipment, especially since the blacksmith sells components you are lacking for relatively cheap. I also like how you start out as nobility with some clout instead of a gutter snipe.

I plan on exploring every square inch of the map which should put me over 100 hours.

So I picked this up last month and have just gotten around to starting it.
Holy cripes.....it's hard. Lots of exploring and quests.
The battles you're given off the bat are not easy.
Lots of ways to play. I've rerolled a couple of times trying to find a good balance.
No bugs so far.
Scratching the rpg itch, for sure.

I got to the 25 hour mark in this one and quit. The game was just way to bland for me. I literally felt like I was doing the same things over and over again.

The combat is ridiculously easy except for the occasional boss fight. Most of my time is spent running from point to point talking to NPCs. A typical quest is traveling to 10 different points to talk to NPCs and watch dialogue cut scenes. Level progression doesn't seem fast enough - it seems to take eons to get points to unlock a new attribute or trait. I'm not particularly captivated by the story, and all the towns look the same.

Yet I can't.....stop.... playing. :D

Unless I'm seriously uninformed there don't seem to be a lot of third person RPGs coming out these days, so this one's definitely on my radar. Not at £43 though; I'll wait for a sale.

And I still have Kingdom Come: Deliverance waiting for me, completely untouched. :roll:

So after multiple tries and reloads, I finally kill one of the creatures necessary to move a plot branch along.
And what's my reward for this epic battle? 5 gold coins...….. :doh:
