The Witcher 3 Is Fucking Great
I know, this is the wrong Wiki for that, but the Witcher /D is terrible (though I've heard the Witcher's D is pretty great).
Anyways, as this title of this post already might have betrayed, I'm writing to tell you all that the Witcher 3 is Fucking Great.
"Now, why is that?" I hear you think. Or sense you think. Not sure.
But it doesn't matter, as I shall tell you anyways.
First and foremost, there's so much stuff to do! Like, damn, it's a lot. And not "Hey go clean this area of the map, will you? Oh, great, job well done, now go clear this area of the map!" type of content, no boring, monotonous grinding and killing without any story behind it, but well thought out quests, no two missions will ever feel the same, you'll always feel like you're actually doing something that helps people, rather than feeling like you're just being kept busy.
So, the quests are just amazing, and there's a lot of them, and they're unique and fun and great and I'm way too enthusiastic about the game.
Then there's just the story, which is wonderful too. There's loss and love and more loss and more love. But, there's also the more hilarious parts to it, and the happy parts, and the parts that make you feel al fuzzy and warm inside.
The combat's pretty swell too.
And, of course, Gwent, which completely confused me in the beginning (not unlike Caravan, that I sadly never managed to get into), but ended up being my prime focus in the game for quite some time. (For those who don't know, Gwent is a card game in the Witcher 3, and Caravan one from Fallout: New Vegas).
Then there's the DLC/Expansion Packs. Whereas Hearts of Stone is quite fun and has quite the amazing story, Blood and Wine surpasses it in almost all aspects. I fucking love this expansion, it's so fucking great. The new region is just stunningly beautiful, and I absolutely love the whole Mediterranean atmosphere. Unlike the main game and Hearts of Stone, I haven't finished this one yet (nor do I hope I will any time soon) but it's already so wonderful.
There's lots of new mechanics added, and the entire region is incredibly exciting. It actually got me as hyped up as when I first started the main game, which was pretty great.
There's so much to do, the music is great (much better than the main game's one, I think), and, greater than all other changes you get your own estate! A mansion! A house with land and vineyards and stables and a greenhouse and a garden and it's bloody (and winey) perfect!
The whole thing just feels incredibly right, and I have to say that the atmosphere really contributes to that. It's much better than all the Northern European shitholes I'd been exploring thusfar. Not just in this game, actually, but also in Skyrim, a game I loved too, but which atmosphere wasn't all that great. I liked it, but it's not really my taste. Maybe a little overplayed.
Whereas the France/Italy lovebaby that is Toussaint is refreshing and much more beautiful.
So, if any of you Heathens haven't played this game yet, go buy it or be burned for the glory of the Eternal Fire. (Fuck those guys though, try to kill anyone affiliated with the Eternal Fire that you can get your hands on.
Ps. If any of you who played the games already spoil Blood and Wine for me I'll unfollow you on Facebook.
