BUT! I will tell you quick what ending I got, I hope it's the same one you got! Or maybe not, that would be cool too, so we can share stories! Well, I'd thought Ciri was dead after she went to stop the White Frost. She stopped it but then it never showed her, and Geralt went to talk to the Emperor and automatically told him that she was dead. I was about to cry again, seriously! Then he went to have a sword made, a really spectacular sword, the best one ever made for a Witcher! It had a beautiful inscription on it, that was for Ciri. So I thought, if she's dead, why is he having a sword made for her? So then I had to go to an Inn, and there she was!!! I gave her the sword and she showed me a purse full of gold she got for killing a Cockatrice lol! Back on the road for both of them it seems, being Witchers lol. It seemed happy though, as far as endings go, because Ciri was really happy.
So many mixed feelings, I know I keep saying that, but it's so true lol. I feel like if you were to take every single color of paint, red and blue and green and yellow and orange and black and white and silver and gold and purple, and poured them all into a bucket and swirled them together. That's how my mind feels after finishing The Witcher 3!
I checked - 276 Hours!! That is officially my longest game ever. I have soooo much to talk about. But I might have to write you tomorrow, because I have to let all of this sink in and just think about it for a while. It's all so fresh because I just finished it, and my mind keeps jumping from one part to another so fast!
I'll let you know which ending I get, I have no idea what will happen yet but I'll let you know. Either way, I'll write you back when I'm all done tonight and let you know everything that happened and respond to your messages! I'm so excited right now, yet so sad that it's almost over! I'm so overwhelmed and have so many mixed emotions in my head right now lol. I don't even know what to think anymore, I'm just going with it lol!!
What a game, that's all I can say! WHAT A FREAKING GAME LOL!!! Gaahhhhh, I'm so mindblown I can't even talk lol!!!
Oh my gosh Bigg, I'm still playing and I have so much to write! I honestly would have taken longer after Vesemir, but the only reason I've gone back to it now is because I'm working a lot the next two days and I probably won't be able to play again until Wednesday. And I can't wait two whole days before I pick it back up, it's too exciting right now lol! I just got the Assassin of Kings achievement though, woo hoo! I'm getting closer to the end, which makes me excited and sad at the same time. I might actually finish this tonight, I don't know, but it's exciting! I kind of hope I do just because I don't want to wait until Wed. to find out how it ends!
And oh my god, when he went in the cabin to see Ciri for the first time, and she was laying there lifeless? Was that the cabin scene you were talking about? Well, I cried there too. That was actually my first tears tonight. When the light went into her, and she woke up, and realized Geralt was hugging her, and then she brought her arms up around him and squeezed him too, my eyes immediately swelled up and I got goosebumps. The whole cut scene, flashing back to when she was a kid running up to Geralt to hug him, the whole thing gave me chills and tears. So, twice I've cried in this game tonight! Unbelievable...lol. I've never done this in a game before, ever.
This hits you harder than your favorite character in a movie dying, because in a movie you might have 2 hours invested. In this game, we invest hundreds of hours. I think the bonds that we, as players, form to these characters are quite real. The emotional attachment is definitely there, for me at least. I'd say they are for you too. If the end of this game doesn't affect you, even just the parts I've seen so far, I'd say you might need to question your humanity lol.
Awww, I appreciate that, it's ok. I'm a little better now, I've just started playing again a little bit ago just because I have to know what happens next, but I'm still incredibly sad. I honestly didn't think he was dead, I thought it just seemed that way, so it didn't even hit me until Ciri was over him and she started crying, saying it was her fault. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks.
Yeah the whole quest, finalized with that scene, oh my god. So many feelings at once. I truly felt devastated at the end, I really did. I still tear up over it even now if I think about it. I immediately wrote you because I knew you would know exactly how I feel. I remember you saying how emotional the end was, how it affected you, and now I know what you were talking about. It's overwhelming..
Bigg.. oh my god.. Bigg. My head is spinning right now! Ciri's scream scene? And then I get hit with this?? Vesemir????? Really, Vesemir?? I'm completely crying right now. I'm on my third kleenex, I had to stop playing. Why Vesemir??? I literally can't play this game right now. I had to get up and pace around my house for a bit. I mean, I'll keep playing, but I'm so upset right now. He can't be... but he's on my screen burning right now, so he is. Oh my god Bigg. Oh my god. I'm still crying as I'm typing this.
Oh my gosh, I'm taking a lot in right now with TW3, ha ha, but I wanted to share one awesome little thing I just found out! Ciri explains how Avallac'h got cursed!
It's really quick, just one or two sentences, so it's easy to miss, but it caught my attention since we've been talking about it. It was Eredin, he did it to humiliate him! He wanted to humiliate him, rather than kill him. I made a clip of it, if you want to see, here. Yayyyy, it's small and insignificant in the story of the game, but at least now we know lol.
