Why I Love The Witcher Series: The Witcher

I finished The Witcher: Enhanced Edition this week. I really enjoyed seeing how the games first started and loved the story!

Plot

This picks up from where the books ended. Geralt was killed by a human, but then comes back to life. The catch is he has completely lost his memory. He spends time at Kaer Morhen trying to regain his memory when it is attacked by the Professor, Jevad, and the Salamandra. They steal the Witcher mutagens and disappear. Geralt must find out why they took the mutagens and stop their plans. This plot has many twists including my favorite which is what the mutagens are for, but I really do not want to spoil the extended plot.

Combat

This combat does get negative reception and was why I was initially hesitant to play this game. On Easy, it is not too difficult. Basically the sword combat is like a rhythm game. Clicking on the enemy with a sword icon will trigger combat. You select your sword and fighting style (Strong, Fast, or Group) and begin fighting. Geralt will automatically start to swing, and you ONLY click the mouse when the sword icon turns into a fiery sword. Too early or too late and Geralt will not chain combos and cannot attack.

On top of that, this game is really picky about you using potions. The other games I would forget and be fine, but not this one. Even on easy, you need to use potions on boss fights and certain quests or you can die pretty quickly.

World

The world is set up into chapters. Each chapter will bring you to a level with maps. These maps will have quests. The maps were a good size. They were not too big or too small. Despite it’s age, the world was still really pretty. I generally liked the worlds that I explored except the swamp because the map was really confusing and the enemies were tough in that map.

Quests

The quests are similar to the other games. I did not find contracts as fun as in this game contracts are mainly kill x amount of creatures, get some material off creatures, get reward. The interesting part about contracts was that you needed to read books to get Bestiary entries to fight monsters.

This games does have some really great side quests though. I enjoyed “Beauty and the Beast” where I helped a woman cure her lover. She wanted him to no longer be a werewolf and you try magic, potions, but true love is what breaks the curse. That was an adorable ending!

“Blue Eyes” involves The Witcher choosing between The Order and the vampires. A knight is looking for his lost sister. I find her at The House of The Queen of the Night and she seems content and happy. I tell the knight what is going on and he insists she’s under a spell. I meet The Queen of the Night and she is a vampire. She tells me that the girl is happy and loved there; she was rescued by The Queen of the Night. The knight was mistreating her and just wanted to set her up with some guy she didn’t love. The Queen of the Night has given her luxury and peace. The knight appears and I am forced to choose sides. I chose The Queen of the Night’s side and Blue Eyes thanked me because she felt safer there than with her brother.

Themes

Identity

Geralt has lost his memory so a major theme of the game is his identity. What’s interesting is you get to choose his identity and there’s actually a quest called “Identity.”  Certain dialogue choices you make will influence the quest. My Geralt went after the Salamandra for personal reasons, chose the Scoia’tael because he believed in their cause for equal rights, and loved Triss. Geralt’s identity is shaped by the choices you make.

Morality

In this game, the major moral choice, is Scoia’tael, the Order, or neutral. Yaevin leads the Scoia’tael who are fighting against how the humans treat the nonhumans in Vizima. The Order are fighting the Scoia’tael because they have hurt humans. They are also monster hunters like Geralt. I chose the Scoia’tael for this game because I want them to have equal rights. The Order also has issues with racism against nonhumans and their leader is a problem in this game. I cannot say why because it is a major spoiler, but he is.

Who are the real monsters?

The Witcher slays monsters, but sometimes he meets evil people that are like monsters. Chapter 1 is a major example. The Witcher goes to a town where a Beast is leading barghest that are killing people. I offered to slay the Beast and that’s when things got interesting. This Beast only comes when people have committed vile acts. Well this town is full of evil people who have done terrible things like murder. Not only that, but they blame a witch named Abigail for their suffering and attempt to burn her.

Interesting Start to The Witcher Games

I did really love this game! I would encourage anyone who is interested to see how the games started play this game. But, there were technical issues in Chapter 5. The game is old and for some reason was having trouble with all the enemies on the screen during the Vizima battle so it would crash. Luckily, setting the graphics to low fixed it until the fight  scenes was over which ended after I did a couple of main quests. Still, I played the game for 70 hours and only had trouble during not even one hour of gameplay.

I also love how this game foreshadows The Wild Hunt. He is an optional final boss in the game and I encountered him during a side quest in Chapter 1. He’s a creepy looking ghost with a long skeleton face. You can fight him as a final boss depending on what you do with the main villain of the game. I do really love this game for it’s story (especially during the later stages), the introduction to major characters like Triss, and the choices in the game.

Why I Love The Witcher Series: Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

I have been a fan of The Witcher since I decided to pick up The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt  when I saw that I could get the complete edition for $20. I did not know too much about the game beforehand. All I knew about the game came from watching Conan reacting to The Witcher 3 and he was mainly focused on the unicorn scene. After playing it for myself, I saw a beautiful world filled with lore, complex characters, and a thrilling story.  After buying The Witcher Enhanced Edition  on Steam, starting the novels, and knowing that The Witcher Netflix series is coming out this month, I have decided to write a series of posts about The Witcher starting with the first game I played.

Characters

Geralt

This game is full of amazing characters! I love Geralt. At first, his voice seemed dry, but I began to love his humor and wit. I also love how much he cared for Ciri.

Ciri

Ciri is also a fun character. She has a strong personality that starts with her as a child. I enjoyed playing as her as well because her combat was really fast.

Triss and Yen

Triss and Yen are also amazing. I am really impressed by how women are represented in The Witcher 3. Triss and Yen are both strong sorceresses. Triss has more of a fiery personality and she is in all three of the games. Yen is introduced in this game, but I love how mature she was. She is a motherly figure to Ciri and she was very independent. Even though she is helping Geralt find Ciri, she is following her own path. She is also extremely intelligent.

Dandelion and Zoltan

Dandelion and Zoltan are Geralt’s main companions. Dandelion also writes in the journal entries of the game. I noticed immediately how much he flattered himself. He definitely fits the bard stereotype with his ego (especially when it comes to his ego about his writing and poetry), but he also truly cares about his friends. Zoltan is a dwarf who is strong, bold, and caring. He is not afraid to speak his mind and he has fought and survived many battles.  He really looks after Geralt even it just means having Geralt sit down and have a drink with him.

Story

The main plot is mostly about finding Ciri and stopping The Wild Hunt. But, there are also multiple plots that overlap such as the Bloody Baron’s story and King Radovid’s hatred of non-humans. These plots also come with multiple endings and finally the final ending. So you can play through the game multiple times to find different ending to both main and side quests.

There are also a ton of side quests in this game. I don’t even think I finished all of them in my first playthrough. There are story side quests, treasure side quests where you find gear or gear sets, and contracts where you kill monsters.

The nice part is that despite having two previous games, the game does its best to explain what it can to you. There are backstories in journal entries. You can choose your own story that happened in The Witcher 2 even if you’ve never played it. Characters like Triss that appeared in all the games are fully developed in this game. I understand more about the characters and the lore now that I am playing the previous games and reading the books, but this game still did a great job at making this a good game for first players.

Humor

This game is really funny. Geralt’s dry humor really makes me laugh. The first time he really made me laugh was when he met a scholar at the first inn who listed his various titles and Geralt said he was a “Witcher. With tenure”. I also love the scene where he gets drunk at Kaer Morhen.

I also love the scenes with the trolls especially the troll named Trololo. The name was funny enough  but he also sings and just randomly says “Trollololo”. There was also a funny scene where Philippa is an owl and Zoltan thinks she’s a real owl so he gives her a perch to sit on and wants the owl to  learn to speak and play gwent.

Massive World to Explore

There are five main locations in this game: White Orchard, Vizima, Novigard, Skellige,  and Kaer Morhen. They all have different environment, different people, and different cultures. Even within the maps themselves there are differences such as the poorer towns outside of a castle.

The worlds have maps full of questions marks where you can explore and find treasures, caves, or monster dens. The monsters in the worlds are full of variety. There are journal entries for each monster so you can learn about them and how to fight them. Some of these monsters were genuinely terrifying like the Leshy.

Combat

The combat mainly consists of using swords, but there is also a crossbow for flying monsters and underwater monsters. I loved the swords because they are so fluid. I also love the movements with the pirouettes. It makes the swordplay almost look like a deadly dance.

I also love the use of signs like Igni for fire and Quen for shield. They can be used in combat or dialogue.

Finally alchemy is a major component in battle. Making potions can strengthen weapons, heal Geralt, or be used against monsters.

Expansions

The main game also comes with two massive expansions that are almost like two separate games.

Heart of Stone

Heart of Stone centers around vampires. You have to fight against Olgried Von Everec who cannot die. It also features a literal toad prince boss which was funny due to the concept, but awful to fight.

Blood and Wine

This gives an official ending to The Witcher games. Geralt is set to find out who the monster is that is killing guards by the ruler of Toussaint.  Geralt inherits a vineyard for his help and this world is a whole new map. I love owning a vineyard while also exploring this high fantasy world.

First Witcher Game

I really loved this game and consider it one of my favorite games of all time. It also got me to play the other games on Steam and get the novels so I could get more background on Geralt and the other character.

Was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt your first Witcher game? Have you played the other games or read the novels? Are you looking forward to the Netflix show?

My First Fire Emblem Game; Fire Emblem: Three Houses

I decided to try Fire Emblem: Three Houses mainly due to a friend’s recommendation. My close friend is a huge fan of the Fire Emblem games. When I saw this game, I was intrigued by the story and the three houses concept. I liked the idea of being a teacher; it reminded me of Hogwarts and I am a huge Harry Potter fan! Here are my thoughts on the game!

Story So Far

The three houses come together to teach their students different styles of combat. You are offered a teaching position there after you aid the three leaders of the houses in combat and save Edelgard. I am currently on the first month where my mission will be to fight bandits.

Character Customization

I was surprised that there is some minor character customization! I knew about choosing the gender of my character, but I was also able to pick my character’s name. I decided that Azura would be a great name for my character and it reminds of the daedric princess in Skyrim!

I was also able to pick my birthday! I could have chosen my actual birthday but I liked the idea of the Pegasus moon because I love Pegasus so I chose February!  I enjoyed that I was able to add some personal touch to my character!

Houses

There are three houses to choose from. I went with The Black Eagles. They are known for their history as being the oldest empire. They are also magic users which I loved and I also loved their leader, Edelgard!

The second house I liked was The Blue Lions. They appear to be mainly knights and they fight more close combat. Their leader is Prince Dimitri Blaiddyd.

The last house called The Golden Deer was the youngest and does not have many nobles. This house stuck out the most to me when I saw the trailers. I liked that they followed their own rules. Claude was interesting when I met him since he was more informal than the other house leaders. They specialize in ranged combat which is why I chose not to go with their house. I thought magic could give me up close and ranged combat.

Teachers

I have met three teachers so far. Manuela is interesting so far. She seems to love the spotlight. I also like that she has a flexible career. She is a teacher, a doctor, and a singer (or songstress as they are referred to in this game). I am interested in learning more about her as a character!

Hanneman knows about crests! He seems very knowledgeable and I would love to learn more from him! I hope he can teach more about crests throughout the game! I am also interested in why my crest is unique.

Jeritza is responsible for combat training. He is aloof for now. He does not appear to like conversation. I hope that I can learn more about him throughout the game. For now, he does not really want to talk to me!

Black Eagle Students

Some of these students I know more than others, but I hope to learn more about each of them soon!

Edelgard

Edelgard is the leader and also a student. She is next in line to rule the Adrestian Empire. She seems like she is trying to fit in as a student despite her prestige.

Hubert

Hubert is loyal to Edelgard. He wants to protect her. He appears to also be aloof, but not as bad as Jeritza. I am hoping that he will connect with the other students as well because connection is important for teamwork.

Dorothea

Dorothea is also a songstress. I have not spent too much time with her. What’s most interesting about her is that she is the only commoner in this house. She is known for her singing and she appears to be really sweet! She is a magic user so I hope to increase her magic and hopefully she can learn healing magic.

Ferdinand

I have not spent much time with them. He is a noble and acts like one with his manners. I do believe I gave him a team riding class and he did good. I think I may give him more riding lessons. Maybe he might be a good knight considering he reminds me of Prince Dimitiri of the Blue Lions. He is good with a lance so that would also make him a good knight.

Bernadetta

I have taken a liking to her and really want to help her! She is very shy so she reminds me of me as a kid. I did put her out into combat during the battle against the houses to help build confidence. I’m hoping that she will gain confidence through my teachings!

Caspar

Funny enough I keep thinking his name is Casper because the blue hair reminds me of Casper the ghost! He is way over confident! I am hoping he will mature throughout the game. Right now, every time he sees me, he wants to fight me because he think he can beat me! We’ll see about that. I did put him in one battle and he needs to work on his axe so I am hoping to make him a better fighter.

Petra

I love her violet hair! She has a really cool character design! She is the talk of the game so far due to her eye tattoo. She is really good with a sword as I also had her fight against the three houses. I love that she already does a double attack! She has a slight language barrier where she does mess up phrases, but she is really trying to learn the language! I hope to see her improve in up close combat with more powerful attacks!

Linhardt

I’m not sure what to say about him yet. He comes across as lazy and seems to prefer naps. I’m hoping that I can encourage him to be more studious and help him grow as a character! He also does really well with offensive magic so I hope I can teach him more offensive spells.

Combat

This was originally my least favorite part going into the game. I was not really sure I would like the style of combat with the movement squares and the top down perspective. However, I found that I really enjoy it!

I like that there are different types of terrain which helps me in combat. When you move to a square, you can see if the enemy can attack you. You can also view the whole map to plan out what you are going to do.

I like that there is a forecast on how my attacks will go so I can plan out my attack. I am really enjoying the strategy of the game. I also like the durability aspect so I am discouraged from constantly using combat arts. Combat arts do more damage, but take down the durability of a weapon.

Teaching

I also saw a little bit of the teaching. I was able to do one lesson so I experimented. Your teacher level determines how many students you can teach at a time.  You can plan out which skills you want to improve. The group teaching allows two students to bond and also figure out a skill like horseback riding. I had Ferdinand and Edelgard do horseback riding. They did good, but it would have gotten better if they knew each other more. But, by the end of the week they did have a perfect score!

Students can also take tests to change classes and you can also do seminars for your character to raise skills!

Activities

Fishing

Fishing was a mini game that was simple and fun. You can get fish for food for the dining hall. I was able to do it once as a tutorial

Gardening

You can grow and cultivate plants for further recipes. I like that there is a relaxing section with gardening, but I do wish you could see your garden.

Dining

You can choose you to dine with your students. This allows you to bond with students and increase their motivation. I like that you can see the delicious food and can spend time with your students.

Singing

Another way to bond with students. Two students can sing together. I chose Dorothea because she loves to sing and it would improve her Faith magic.

What do I think of Fire Emblem now?

I really love this game so far and can see why it is such a beloved series! I cannot wait to see more of the game and maybe I will try other Fire Emblem games after this one! Overall, I am really impressed with the game and I enjoy how much strategy is involved with the game!

What do you think of Fire Emblem: Three Houses so far? Let me know in the comments!

Saints Row IV: Having a Good Time

I really loved playing Saints Row IV! It was so much fun with a funny story, interesting gameplay, and kept me laughing and smiling while I was playing!

Plot

Basically you are the President of The United States who has to escape a simulation and rebuild Earth after it was taken over by aliens being led by Zinyak.

Fun Story Moments

I loved saving my team from the simulations to help defeat the aliens

  • Saving Kenzi from a 1950’s simulation by blasting Rock music and using a dubstep weapon.
  • Saving Matt from a text based computer game
  • Saving Johnny Gat from a side-scrolling beat ’em-up game

I also enjoyed having super powers in the simulation such as being able to jump, glide, and smash. I loved gaining power over the areas by defeating aliens or climbing huge towers.

Fun Side Quests

I enjoyed spending time with Pierce singing “Opposites Attract” and “Just a Friend” until that song changed from rap to opera because Zinyak wanted to mess with us. I also enjoyed showing Gat Genki’s Super Ethical Reality Climax which he enjoyed. There was also a funny side quest involving hanging out with Fun Shaundi who was Shaundi’s younger self who was more carefree.

Ending and Credits

The game ended with a long boss fight against Zinyak. My favorite moment was a minor bug that happened during my game. Basically the game has you kill Zinyak in a Mortal Kimbat like style. The problem was is that my character was supposed to drop his head, but didn’t. So it stayed there any time my character appeared on screen from the ending to post-credits. This was especially funny when there was a dance scene to begin the credits and Zinyak was in it.

The credits made me like cry like they always do because of the adorable pictures of the staff and they voice actors sang two songs together like “Just a Friend” I just thought it was an adorable way to end the game. I also liked that there was a finance guy with the nickname “Financy Pants”.

Good Time

This game was crazy and just a lot of fun! I found the game to be really relaxing and it made me smile and laugh! I really enjoyed playing this game and I am looking forward to the next Saints Row game.

Have you played Saints Row IV? What was a game that you had a lot of fun playing?

I enjoyed this post by A Geeky Gal on Normal Happenings. I am somewhat familiar with Yuna from the time I’ve spend playing Final Fantasy X. I love that she uses healing magic to heal her party and is also a powerful summoner. I really enjoyed A Geeky Gal’s analysis of her and also how she related to Yuna.

My Top Ten Games of the Decade

Happy New Year everyone! This was a fun list to do, even thought it was hard to number everything! These games were games I loved and have special memories with!

10. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

This is the only game on this list that I haven’t finished, but I think it should be on here! I just love that it encourages exploring, there are memorable side quests, and it’s also kinda like the Sims where you built a family and get a house. I definitely am glad I got this on the Switch and I really enjoy playing it!

9. Yakuza 0

This is the game that got me into the Yakuza series. I loved playing as Kiryu and Majima! I also loved the activities like disco and karaoke. The story is great because it’s very emotional, but also breaks things up with funny side quests. This was not a game I was sure I would like, but I am definitely glad I decided to play it!

8. Final Fantasy XV

This game was the first game I ever played on my PlayStation 4! I got the PlayStation 4 bundled with this game so it is decorated like Final Fantasy XV! This is also the series that got me into Final Fantasy. I loved the music and the story and loved the story of three friends going on a journey together!

7. Super Mario Odyssey

I really enjoyed this game! I loved exploring the worlds and collecting moons. The game was really relaxing and just made me smile. It was also the first game that I beat on the Nintendo Switch.

6. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

I really wanted to put this game on the list as I feel it is an important game to play. This game allows you to understand what it is like to have a mental illness like schizophrenia. I was impressed that the developers worked hard to make sure that their game accurately represented schizophrenia.

5. Nier Automata

This game was just amazing! I loved the story, the side quests, the multiple endings. I loved playing this game and the story definitely made me cry a few times! I am really glad I got to experience this game!

4. Zero Horizon Dawn

I loved Aloy! It was fun playing as her and exploring the world! I loved that I got to define her character based on my actions. I also loved battling the different robots.

3. Persona 5

I loved the characters, the music, the combat, and the story! This game was so much fun! I loved taking down palaces to change the world for the better and the twists in the story.

2. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

Playing as Kassandra and exploring ancient Greece was amazing! I also loved the branching story paths and how things would change depending on what you did during the story. I loved how Assassin’s Creed was changed for this entry!

1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

This is my top game of the decade! I loved this game; I loved Geralt! I loved that there were different choices to make, the multiple side quests like contracts, and the main story was really fun. The expansions were fantastic too! This is the game that got me into The Witcher game series, book series, and now the Netflix show.

What were your top 10 games of the decade? Did any of yours make this list?

Christmas Games – Saints Row IV: How The Saints Saved Christmas

Photo by Jameel Hassan on Pexels.com

This month has been stressful. I was struggling to feel the excitement of Christmas so I played this DLC from Saints Row IV hoping that maybe it could help me feel the “spirit of Christmas”. It actually did with a funny but heartwarming story!

Plot

Shaundi, a Saints Row member, comes from the future to state that the world is in a catastrophe. Christmas has been taken over by Claws and there is no more cheer left in the world. The President, the custom character you play as, has to save Christmas. But, The President doesn’t care about Christmas. So they’ll need to find the Christmas spirit to help save Christmas.

Favorite Parts

I loved the theme of finding the Christmas spirit since I needed to also find the excitement I usually feel around Christmas. The President starts out by not caring, but slowly begins to like Christmas as they help Santa Claus defeat Claws.

I also loved that the enemies became gingerbread man and nutcrackers because it was really funny! The jokes they made about Santa Claus were funny too like Mrs. Claus being an absolute badass when she was protecting the workshop from Claw’s army. She really was “decking the halls”.

Claws Boss Fight

The final boss fight with Claws was really adorable! He was invincible and you had to break his defenses by spreading Christmas cheer. This involved lighting the Menorah, throwing gifts to people, and finally throwing gifts at Claws. It wasn’t a hard boss fight, but the theme was really cute because you basically destroyed him with kindness! Also the gifts were stuff that the Saints Row members wanted.

Ending and Rewards

The game gave out several rewards for completing different levels in the DLC like a Christmas Dubstep weapon, Christmas costumes like Santa Claus, Christmas helpers such as Santa Claus and Claws will help you in the main game, and Christmas vehicles like you can ride a flying reindeer.

The ending was my favorite part. The last part to saving Christmas was spreading Christmas cheer! The final cutscene involved the Saints caroling, making snowmen, and celebrating Christmas while “Jingle Bell Rock” played. It just made me smile and I started singing along!

After completing the DLC, I unlocked an activity called The Genki Holiday Special. You have to use telekinesis to throw holiday themed items such as a Christmas tree through hoops while on a time limit. I loved that the raised the pitch of the announcer’s voices so they sounded like elves and I thought it was an adorable activity!

I also unlocked Naughty and Nice where I rode in a sleigh while delivering coal and gifts to Steelport. I loved that Santa and Mrs. Claus talked to me while I rode the sleigh because some of the dialogue was funny. I laughed when Mrs. Claus berated Santa for leaving her with the elves while he got to take a joy ride around the world.

Saints Row Christmas Spirit

I enjoyed how this game helped me feel the joy of Christmas! The DLC was just long enough to keep me entertained without stretching out the plot. Each level was funny and has adorable Christmas music. The outfits allowed me to run around Steelport as Santa or Santa’s elves. I loved that the ending was all about spreading Christmas cheer!

What games do you enjoy playing around Christmas?

 

Tales from the Backlog’s Memories of Majora’s Mask

Question. How do you terrify an eight year old into being afraid to touch a video game? If you are my older brother, just start up Banjo Kazooie. For me, it was the opening to Majora’s Mask. At the time, and maybe still to this day, this was one of the scariest openings that I […]

via Advent Gaming Calendar 2019 Day 20: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask — Tales from the Backlog

I enjoyed reading Carlton from Tales From The Backlog’s post about Majora’s Mask! I actually did play the game as a kid once. When I was on vacation with my family, there was a N64 at the hotel because it was the popular console at the time. I remember playing Majora’s Mask and being terrified of it. I only played up until the flower puzzle, but I was so young I was struggling with it so I gave up. I remember being scared of the mask and I had not even seen the creepy moon yet! I got the 3DS remake so I can finally experience the whole game. Enjoy Carlton’s post here and let him know your memories of playing Majora’s Mask!
