Another thing about this game that needs to be said, IMO, is to SAVE OFTEN. Don't rely on auto save as it can sometimes be quite a ways off depending on your current situation. I can't tell you how many times already that I yelled "Ahhhhhh fuck!" after getting back-stabbed to death in the blink of an eye and then restarting 10 to 15 minutes in the past. The "positioning" perk can aleviate that particular insta-death annoyance though.:) That being said, I really enjoy the challenging combat overall.
