The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, no, don’t exchange the H for a C.
I’m so happy I gave this game a try. I mean, it looked amazing from the trailers and stuff, plus with the overwhelming reviews, it was hard to pass it up. But like I said, I’m glad I didn’t pass it up, because the characters were amazing. The voice acting is great. It’s a game with its humor as well as more serious and somber tones depending on the questline you’re on.
There’s so much to explore and so much to find in the environment.
Is there a Patreon playthrough of this game?
No, most of all my Patreon gameplay focuses on anything within the NSFW genre.
Who is this game for?
- Achievement hunters
- Cutscene fanatics
- Roamers of the world
- Story-driven gamers
When did my interest get piqued?
The moment I saw Geralt soaking naked in the bath and heard his voice.
Does The Witcher 3’s ending explain everything?
There are multiple endings that you can acquire and each one has settled everything to a proper end.
Do you have guides for the game?
Not as of yet.
Explanation to Negative Feedback
I mean, I had to look for something negative to say about this game, as no game is absolutely perfect. No game. Do you hear me? Not even The Witcher 3.
That’s not to say the bugs are game-breaking. Though I ran into some obnoxious ones–with one being super long load times that I’d have to quit the game and go back into it. Another bug was Geralt being in a horse-riding position without being on his horse. So he’s this scrunched up man levitating around the place.
It was more funny than not and corrected itself after a cutscene.
Combat is difficult to master
I’ll admit I struggled with the combat a lot during my time playing this game, but that’s not to say it’s hard to do, it’s just hard to master.
You’ve got different signs to use that are better used against specific enemies. You’ve got two swords–one for humans and another for monsters. Not only that but there’s a crossbow if you want to use it, bombs to be made, potions to give you extra boosts in some areas, and then the talents that you can choose with each new level gained.
It’s all about choosing the right way to defeat what’s in front of you, and not be a kamikaze witcher in the process.
Explanation to Positive Feedback
And amazing voice actors that gave them all a voice of their own, (not just Geralt, fanboys and girls).
No two “main” NPCs are alike, though you can’t really say the same for the soldiers that wander around or guard camps. It’s hard to make every single one of them different and unique when they’re just there for filler content and to beat your ass if you steal something.
Beautiful open world environments
Not everything is made the same, with environmental replicas being copy and pasted everywhere. The different areas you visit in the game really feel like they’re different from one another and have beautiful scenery to go with them…sometimes. I mean if you’re in a swampy location then it’s probably not going to be beautiful, but you get what I mean.
I’m not a huge fan of open worlds because I get so lost when I run off the beaten path, but in The Witcher, we’re urged to explore the areas around us.
Guarantee you’re not going to find nothing if you veer off the main questline’s pathway. You’ll run into interesting monsters, find treasures, meet up with another quest-giver, or whatever.
Soundtrack is on point
I won’t spoil it for you, but so many people have added The Witcher soundtracks to their Spotify albums for that great feeling of a great game.
You’ll be gunning for 78 total achievements.
As war rages on throughout the Northern Realms, you take on the greatest contract of your life — tracking down the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world.
Definitely over 100+ hours.
You can come back to do a NG+ or just play again because it’s an immersive experience with tons to do.
There’s so much action to be had, because you’ll be fighting a variety of enemies, and not only that, but each specific enemy has their strengths and weaknesses, so choosing the right signs is crucial. As well as the right potions.
Lord knows you go on tons of adventures as Geralt, and even Ciri at times.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review
This is actually the first Witcher game I played and man…have I enjoyed the game to its full extent. I don’t think I’ve ever been in love with the vast amount of storylines this game takes you through–via the main ones or the side ones–with all the different characters you meet as well. I mean, they’re pretty memorable at times–especially the three hags of the swamp.
And then there’s the iconic Geralt that we play and his sexy growl of a voice.
Not to mention the luscious Yennefer.
I know I’ve said it before, but open world games tend to bother me in the sense that I get really lost and veer off the main questline, then I have no idea what I’m doing or where I am. The Witcher 3 doesn’t really frustrate me in that sense, as there’s always something to look out for when you’ve strayed. It’s either a high level territory you’re gonna want to skedaddle out of, or monsters guarding a treasure you’ll want to fight off.
Not to mention, you can’t really find Places of Power unless you step off the main road and do a little exploring.
Then again it’s worth it anyway, because you might find better gear or weapons and even some schematics to help you craft your own equipment. So see? The open world can be a nice thing.
I don’t think Geralt is as much of a dirty dog as he is in the previous Witcher games? Like I feel like when I did play an earlier game, he could get all kinds of frisky with any woman he wanted to, but in Wild Hunt he’s a bit more reserved. Like he’s off limits and I don’t know if it’s just his demeanor now or if it’s due to Yennefer.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s still naked people from time to time. Just less of…what he’d typically do with a naked woman.
Also, can I just say I can’t play this game without thinking of the song, Toss A Coin to Your Witcher? Thanks for that, Dandelion.
