Having waited a long time to play TW I have to say, just put it at the top of your list, it's really, really good. The wikia can take care of any questions if you're the anal sort (like me) that doesn't want to miss anything, they even have a checklist page with things to do every chapter if you want to use it. There's a lot of meat to TW and it's of the delicious steak variety.
I tried it when it first came out but got bored within the first hour due to the sucky combat and very slow gameplay. You were arbitrarily running around in this castle as your destination was really far for no apparent reason. Took forever to move from one room to another. From what I've heard from others, it also has a lot of long-distance fedex.
The EE has naturally since come out and I've heard that it fixes a lot of these issues, but I'm not terribly interested in fantasy settings. Actually, I got as far as the intro video about a month ago and just thought - meh, yet another uber cool magic tough guy dishing out an ass-whopping all around. Yawn.
I will definitely play it and I hope it will be during this summer, but I will have to get into the mood for it.
Come on, it was at least 72!
edit: Oh noes, you're right. My memory is VERY BROKEN.
Skipping 24+1 is very, very vivid in my memory still :P
