Well I'll keep you updated Bigg, I'm moving right along and might even finish the game up soon! I'll let you know when I sail off to the Isle of Mist, I'm going to be checking and rechecking that I have nothing left to do first though. It's been a great two days of gaming though, I've gotten through some great quests and Contracts and the game is just getting more and more exciting the closer I get to the end. By the way, how is State of Decay? Is it any good? I saw it's on the Ultimate Sale this week, and I've had another friend play it and say he really enjoyed it. I hope it's going good for you!
I hadn't noticed in Wolfenstein TNO that you could hear a helicopter in the end, wow! That might leave it a bit open-ended then, like maybe he really does survive? I hope so, because I just can't picture another character to take his place. BJ's character and Brian Bloom's voice acting made that game incredible and I can't imagine playing it without them.
That's also really interesting news about what you heard about the next Metro games going in a semi-RPG route with different dialogue options! That would be really cool! I just hope they keep the same atmosphere though, and I know there are people that are disappointed when they keep games on the same track but I think Metro can do it right. One example would be Far Cry 3 and 4, they kept those games much too similar and it got boring pretty fast for so many people. I never had an urge to play FC4 because of it, so I doubt I'll ever play it. But Metro, I think will be fine if they keep it in the same general "feel" as the Metro Redux games were. I'm so happy they're working on the next one already!
Oh my gosh, 600 collectibles in Sunset?! Ha ha, well it looks like I'll be getting those maps and grinding for a while then lol. I'm not looking forward to that part, but I still want to try the game. I really should finish the Pre-Sequel before starting another game too, I keep forgetting about that! I don't think it will take me long at all to finish, so I might do that first, I'll see.
I wish I'd seen that Top 10 Games thread before it got cleaned out and locked lol, it sounds interesting. I imagine there were a lot of differing opinions about games in there? I could see maybe if someone put a game in their top 10, and someone else says how could you like that more than this?? And then banter probably followed lol! Either way, it was a good idea and I look forward to your Xbox One list in your blog later in the year! I'll definitely do one too, it will be fun!
The Reddit links were awesome too, thanks! I read all of them and enjoyed the artwork! I love looking around on various sites like that, especially in CDPR's forums too, because you really see how vast their fan base is. That cosplay of the Bruxa was so crazy! When I saw the art of Geralt and Yen being taken by the Wild Hunt, I started daydreaming that maybe down the road, they will make another Witcher game that STILL revolves around Geralt, but set when he was young and human, and you play through the events that lead up to him becoming a Witcher! You could see how he originally met Yen, how they were taken by the Hunt and what happened then. You could play out his early beginnings and see when he meets Vesemir, and get sooooo much more story. I would be very happy with that! Wishful thinking, I'm sure though lol. I know the next game probably won't have Geralt in it, which makes me sad.
Right now I've been faithful to the Feline armor and I love it! I upgraded it to the Superior and before I sail off for the Isle of Mists, I'm hoping I can upgrade it to the Mastercrafted. I also got that Skill perk to add 5% attack per piece of Feline armor you wear, so that's 20% right there and I definitely see a difference! His hits are more powerful, plus I got the last skill maxed out in the Fast Attack tree that causes bleeding damage. Oh my gosh, he is super deadly, I love it!!
I still feel bad for Lambert though and understand his thick sarcasm with life. He didn't want to be a Witcher and was put into it through a bad situation. I like Eskel a lot though, he has a mellow personality and yeah, that scar is awful lol! But he strikes me as someone who would be a good friend. I think Lambert would be the one to go and party with, but Eskel would be that friend you could always rely on.
Oh my gosh, I forgot about that line in the song, "The wish I whispered when it all began. Did it forge a love you might have never found?" Yes, it explains it all so clearly during Last Wish!! When they remove the bond that those lyrics are talking about, I just knew nothing would change between them. At least, I wasn't going to let anything change for Geralt, so if Yen was suddenly like, "Sorry, I don't like you anymore," then I was going to have to romance her I suppose lol. I like Yen sooooo much now, and the chemistry and love between her and Geralt, that it actually makes me not really like Triss that much anymore! I see her as merely a distraction, and a con artist, in a way because of how she manipulated Geralt to like her in the beginning. #TeamYen
I think I'm level 32 now, but I might run around the world a bit more to grab another level or two before I head to the Isle of Mists, just to make sure I get that level 35 achievement. I'm worried about the fights with the Wild Hunt lol! The level requirement for the Isle of Mists quest is in the high 20's, so I should be ok to progress now, but just in case...
So I'm wondering, do you think there's any chance more achievements might be added for the NG+? I think that would be AWESOME! I want there to be more, many many many more! I can't see them leaving this game at the 1000G, so now I'm already looking forward to seeing what achievements they add. I guess some will probably be tied to the Expansions coming out later this year too!
I was excited to finally get those other achievements like Humpty Dumpty, What Was That and Overkill out of the way though! And Pest Control was really easy, when I looked at the video in your Guide, there was only one more Monster Nest I was missing in Skellige so I quickly got that done too. Oh! And I easily got the Full Crew achievement, I was soooo excited! I think I was way too worried about that one. That and the Gwent achievements have had me worried the whole game, but they weren't bad at all. Now the only one I have left that is iffy is Assassin of Kings, but I'm right on track with that too. I did all of the side quests already, so during Blindingly Obvious I'll make sure to choose the first dialogue options and I should be good! Aside from that, and getting the headshots, I don't think anything else I have left is missable. I have two Contracts left and that's it, so I'll get that achievement the next time I play too.
