I do remember those bobbleheads in Fallout 3, and agreed! I actually wanted to find those, because there weren't too many of them, and they helped boost your skills so they were helpful in the game. Finding pointless trinkets just for the sole purpose of getting the achievement for it, while it does nothing to help you in the game, stinks big time. I really dislike when games do that too.
Just because I love RPG's so much, I think I'm going to enjoy DA Inquisition. I'm usually not a big person on playing a game and comparing it constantly to another game, and putting it down because of it, so I'll keep an open mind in that regard when I play it. I'll try to put Witcher out of my mind and focus on Inquisition lol. But with all of the RPG elements, I think I'll enjoy it for the most part, at least.
Since CD is working on Cyberpunk right now, I wonder how long until we hear anything on the next Witcher game? If they don't release Cyberpunk until 2017 or even 2018, do you think they'll just then begin working on the next Witcher? Oh man, then it might be 2021 or 2022 before the next Witcher if they take 3-4 years on that. That's too long lol!
Ugh, collectibles. You know, I just realized there aren't any collectibles in the Witcher, are there? I never really thought about that before! I mean, you have your side quests which include some fetch quests, but there's not any achievements related to anything like, "Find all _____." CD deserves another hug for that one. I truly think it's made the game more enjoyable. You have the scavenger hunts, which give you the Witcher gear sets and such, but it's not required for an achievement or anything, so that's up to you. Oh my gosh, another reason I love CD now!
I'll definitely do that with the headshots achievement, and redistribute my skill points. I actually grabbed a potion of clearance last night while I was playing, because while I was doing the Skellige Gwent quest line, I had to get 3 items for Gremist in his Practicum in Advanced Alchemy quest, in order to play him. After I played him, I looked through his wares and he had one so I grabbed it for that achievement later.
I have the Missing Son contract as well, but right now it's red as it's a level 29 quest. I'll get to it soon though! It's strange, even though I'm higher level now and it's taking 2K xp to level up, it still feels like I'm leveling up pretty fast overall. Doing these quests and contracts helps so much with that. Sometimes I just go talk to someone and then it updates the quest and boom! 200 or 300 xp just for that lol.
I finished the Gwent quests (Skellige) and played everyone there in the main Gwent quest. Now I only have a few fist fighting ones left and horse races, so I need to get those done. Bigg, this game is SO MUCH FUN! I get giddy when I sit down to play it, it's so weird! I can't even explain it. I really dread the day when I finish this game.
I have the High Stakes quest, but haven't played it yet as it's a level 26 quest, but I'll play it soon! Ha ha, can't wait to meet Madame Sasha then, but that was actually really cool of you to reload your save so you didn't stray from Yen! I'll do the same. You're a good guy, Bigg! It reminds me of the Iron Maiden quest when you have to go and retrieve the sword for Jutta, so that you can prove yourself worth to fight her. Then afterwards she invites you back to her home, ha ha. I should have reloaded my save after that, but I didn't think of it! Ahhhh, my Geralt has some apologizing to do to Yen.
Good morning Bigg! I made a little more progress last night and finally got a few more achievements out of the way, ha ha! Nothing major, but I got two for two of the Contracts (The Mystery of The Byway Murders - Sarasti, and the Woodland Spirit) and then the Necromancer achievement for the Nameless quest. Sarasti was pretty easy, and the Woodland Spirit was so cool looking! The Nameless quest was really good, as I thought that Skjall really was craven for running when the Wild Hunt came. But then after playing as Ciri and enjoying her Spa vacation (LOL), I saw that he was trying to help her get out and protect her. I was like, awww, this guy really likes her lol. And he really wasn't craven, as I saw him step in front of her when the Wild Hunt came, and he raised his little axe to protect her. Poor Skjall. I did have Ciri give him a kiss just before the Wild Hunt came - his first ever kiss. Awwww lol.
I'm glad I went with Cerys too, I agree I liked her a lot. I've noticed there are a lot of redheads in Skellige! She was one of the first ones I noticed, but now I see them quite often. Skellige is unique in so many ways, I just love it here. If I were Geralt, I would buy a vacation home here lol.
Oh man, I'm loving Skellige! It definitely reminds me of Skyrim and I just love the scenery in it. I'm really enjoying exploring the islands. I will let you know when I hit Yen's Last Wish quest! Right now my main story is Missing Persons and I have another main story quest called Nameless that recently popped up too. But I've been focusing more on the side quests and Contracts lately, and I'm finally leveled up enough to go searching for the Feline gear, so I'm going to look into that soon too. It's like once I hit level 20-22, I had at least 15 quests become available for me to do from my quest backlog lol. Not to mention all of the quests I am still finding along my travels... So I keep getting distracted from the main story! I'll get back to it soon though.
And when you get there, it was so tense because he's standing with his back to you, and says something like, "You have no idea what you're dealing with. If you did, you would have drawn your Silver sword." And then I was like - "Ohhhhh, crap!! What is he?!?!" I was thinking some kind of monster! Then he starts morphing into a huge vampire beast. Turns out he was a High Vampire, hence why he could walk during the day and look human. It was great, and I'm sorry to hear you missed that part at the end! Oh well, the mortuary business will remain busy in Novigrad at least lol.
Yes, Carnal Sins, that was it! Oh my gosh, I didn't know you could kill the Overseer (Reverend Nathaniel I think) beforehand! It's amazing how two people can have such different experiences with the game, wow!! The guy doing the autopsies, Hubert Rejk, seemed so nice and helpful and told me he found a note on a body saying Sweet Nettie was next, so you run there and find Rev. Nathaniel there burning Nettie with hot pokers (he was mean and a bit of a freak, too!) against her will since she was tied up and crying, but after investigating and talking to them, you realize it was a set up and you were sent there to think it was him - was this where you killed him? Well after that I realized it must be Hubert, since he was the one to send me there. Nathaniel said to go find him at the docks, where he was picking up an order of Formaldehyde for the mortuary (then I knew for sure).
