This summer has been going by fast especially with all the RPGS I have been playing!
I finally got past the tutorial area. Now that I understand the story leading up to this game by reading the books and playing all of the games, I understand the war going on better than just wondering who the Nilfgaards are. I now know a lot more about Geralt, Vesemir, Yenn, and Ciri’s backstory. I know about Geralt and Yenn’s relationship in the books as well as his relationship with Ciri. I know how she sees them as her parents. She even calls Yenn “Mommy”.
In the games I trusted Emhyr. Now, there’s no way in hell I will. He does some really nasty stuff in the books including using a Fake Ciri to trick Cintra.
I also know why The Wild Hunt wants Ciri before the game tells me. So I understand a lot more about that story as well, but don’t want to give spoilers.
Because of this, I am able to focus on the story better since things don’t have to be explained to me. Like it somehow went over my head that there was an interconnected story in the tutorial island involving the noonwraith and the isolated villager. I was just so focused on trying to get everyone’s names and stories that I would miss out on minor details. Basically the king’s son had a relationship with this male villager and the king became furious when he found out. When the noonwraith’s husband said something about the king’s son, the king murdered them leading to the noonwraith haunting the well.
I am looking forward to also seeing Triss and The Lodge as I am curious to see how I will approach them. I know Triss and Geralt’s relationship in the novels and how he feels about The Lodge. I loved The Lodge the first time I played as it was really cool to see a bunch of sorceresses banding together, but now I know about their politics involving Ciri so I’m not sure if I will still like them.
Persona 4: Golden
I finally rescued Yukiko so now I am just waiting until she recovers. I also found the weirdest fetch quest which I wanted to share. I wanted to try fishing, but needed a rod. I looked up how to get one and had to follow these steps:
- Talk to boy in shrine and give him steak croquette
- He will give you a ladybug
- Go to the nightclub at night and talk to the lady. She says her fish isn’t eating his bread crumbs and the fish will get so excited to eat the ladybug, he will drop a fishing hook.
- Talk to old man during the day to get a rod.
Video game logic!
I finally am playing The Sims! I only played it once when The Sims 2 was out and a friend of mine showed me her Sims family. It was on sale this weekend so I got it! I got the base game with the Pets pack, the Island Living Pack, and the Vampires pack. I have one family with a human girl and a mermaid who are sisters with a calico kitten and a husky puppy. I have another family with a vampiress and a human guy who are friends. I needed to add a human to the house because she cannot go outside and I got her a Samoyed puppy that only wants to be outside and an adult orange cat. Those two are my fun family because one is a kleptomaniac and the other wants to be a Master Vampire.
Since I haven’t really played The Sims, I did get confused and make some funny mistakes. I actually had put the girl, vampire, and mermaid all under one roof because I did not realize that I was making a family for one house. I then moved them to the Island living place because I did not know that they would be all under one roof so I had a happy mermaid and a miserable vampire who really didn’t want to live in what was basically like Hawaii.
I also did not know anything about house building and built what can only be described as an abomination. I just bought rooms and tried to put them together without realizing I could build an empty room. I then somehow put the roof on back wards and it was a mess because the house was built funny. Finally, when I tried to have them move in, they couldn’t because I forgot to build a front door and windows. Then I built the door and no one could get in because it needed stairs. The only stairs I could find were for a second floor so I couldn’t make stairs. I just gave up and deleted the save I just then I made a new save and got two pre-built houses for the two families.
I’m hoping to finish The Witcher 3 and then finish either Persona 5:Royal or Persona 4: Golden.
