I've been having an absolute blast this so far. I think that having a large break in between my original playthrough and now has made me more greatly appreciate what an incredible game it is. I'm still yet to really make a start on the DLC as I've been happily turtling through all of the areas in detail (including the challices which I didn't get very far into last time round). One of the benefits of not using a walkthrough is that I've come across a number of new things this time that I didn't experience my first playthrough. A key example of this is the Upper Cathedral that I never realised existed.
