Bloody Baron: I'll never know what bloom would've been the favorite of my miscarried daughter, and the fault lies with me.
Geralt: Wanna play Gwent?

Not sure I'm actually enjoying this now (level 14), might need to take a break.

Don't care for these characters much TBH.

I think that Geralt's general lack of affect may be why I'm connecting to him, but that doesn't explain why I'm not connecting with other, more colorful/expressive characters.

Is the story supposed to be good or merely good for an open-world RPG? I haven't been impressed, and I'm in Act II now.

the overall story did not strike me as a strength at the time and i can barely remember anything about it now. i don't think that the main storyline/plot is ever done well in open world games, and the smaller stories you discover (or sometimes create) as you go about the world are where narrative elements can actually shine.

What prompted me was actually a secondary quest, the one where you help the Irish viking princess help free a local chieftain from a demon tormenting him by...


... throwing his newborn infant into an oven -- basically, the demon needs to find a new host who genuinely has intense feelings of guilt, but the outlines of the plan were already described by Geralt so why would he feel real remorse?

Gwent Stefani (Leee), Monday, 20 August 2018 19:55 (one year ago) link

yeah people mostly like it for all the weirdo side stories and world building. i never finished the main quest, same as all open world games

I finished it on accident

i find the story more amusing than necessarily good but it still has some sense of character to it and a consistency within its own world. some of the skeillige scenes were hilarious, as an irish person. the acting and the diff accents from diff parts of ireland.

it's weird reading the diff reactions to it. i never played a single hand of gwent after the first 10-minute foray, and i was a magic the gathering nerd in my teens. just couldn't get into it.

prob be surprised if i ever enjoy a game as much as this tho i am already looking forward to their cyberpunk game.

I just started this today ! I mean III. I hate starting games though and this one seems massive but I will try.

One butt cheek is for human enemies, the other butt cheek is for monsters.

that explains the unbalanced tingling when the witcher walks through the woods

henry cavill sucks and is bad, therefore this show will suck and be bad


Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 21 July 2019 23:06 (three months ago) link

Also the game is bad.

All three instalments are worth playing. 1-2 do certain things better than 3.

“One of the things that probably shifted the most once we cast Henry is that Geralt speaks a lot less than I initially intended. In the books, Geralt’s actually quite chatty. He talks a lot. What I found, though, is that on-screen—especially with Henry portraying him—a lot can be done in looks and in grunts. Henry’s a big grunter. I mean that in the best way possible,” she said.

Coelacanth Green (Leee), Monday, 22 July 2019 22:05 (three months ago) link

oh he’s a big grunter alright

three months pass...

this game really wants me to get into Gwent. I don't understand it at all, which is typical of me because I find most card games perplexing at the best of times

YOU CALL THIS JOURNALSIM? (dog latin), Friday, 8 November 2019 11:34 (six days ago) link

I've been playing this for a good few weeks but I'm still LV5. Seem to be trying to defeat the first Wild Hunt demon with the help of a high maintenance hippie witch who reminds me of my ex girlfriend's housemate

YOU CALL THIS JOURNALSIM? (dog latin), Friday, 8 November 2019 11:39 (six days ago) link

I only seem to be able to apply ability points to one ability (fast action swordplay or something). How does this work?

YOU CALL THIS JOURNALSIM? (dog latin), Friday, 8 November 2019 15:00 (six days ago) link

can't remember how the ability system works, do remember it fucking sucks

devvvine, Friday, 8 November 2019 15:13 (six days ago) link

you don't have to play gwent at all beyond that one time where they make you learn it. i certainly never played it again after that.

na (NA), Friday, 8 November 2019 15:27 (six days ago) link

i'mstarting to wonder why i haven't leveled up more than I have. It's making it rather hard to defeat this Nithral character

YOU CALL THIS JOURNALSIM? (dog latin), Friday, 8 November 2019 15:46 (six days ago) link

i recall that one being a tricky one. any guide online could tell you more but use the roll away movement as much as possible. i also think i was able to back out of it or get a previous save and go back and load up on healing potions

global tetrahedron, Saturday, 9 November 2019 02:24 (five days ago) link

smashed it! although afterwards I seemed to end up on the other side of the map with a bunch of tasks to do way way away
