I also got some more Side Quests done, so now I have all of those done as well except for the ones that require me to go to Skellige, of which I think there are two. I also finished up all of the Gwent quests that I could, so I played Zoltan which then led me back to Roche (haha, funny since I stumbled on him the other day anyway ) and then I went to the Bath House to talk to Sigi Reuven, where I also won another Gwent card from him. Gwent seems to have become more easy than ever now, as I won all of those games on my first try, easily! And I went back to Novigrad to the Merchant and the Blacksmith that I couldn't beat when I first arrived in Novigrad, and beat both of them on my first try last night too.
I got through a good chunk of stuff last night though, I was very pleased with my Witcher gaming lol! I finally went and did all of the Velen fist fights, and grabbed the Fist of the South Star achievement, and did the horse races there too (they were all very easy!). I did all of the Contracts that I can, including the Doppler one, Deadly Delights (I let the Succubus go because I tried twice to kill her but it was too hard lol), Swamp Thing, The Apiarian Phantom and An Elusive Thief. I'm done with Contracts for now, as all of the ones left are in red because their levels are in the 20's and 30's. I did gain two more levels last night, so now I'm up to level 15. The game really continues to get easier, the more I level up!
I was speechless after that part. It was so sad yet so beautiful! I got a good screenshot of Geralt and Zoltan while she was singing and they both had their eyes shut, I think they were teary eyed! Really, Geralt should have been regardless because it was about him and Yen and if there were any part in the game that should move The White Wolf to tears, that will be it. Even if I had wanted to go with Triss up to this point, that would have been the changing moment right there. Yen and Geralt are meant to be together! "I know not if fate would have us live as one, Or if by love's blind chance we've been bound..." Either way, they are bound, be it by love or fate! (I think it's by both. ) Oh my god, what a beautiful scene!! That entire quest was amazing, I wish I could reload a save just before it and do it again. Now this really makes me unable to wait until him and Yen are together!
BIGG! I did Broken Flowers last night!!! I knew exactly what you were talking about when I got to the part with Priscilla's song! Ohhhhhhhhh man, this confirmed my decision to go with Yen!! The song was so pretty! It was really touching, oh my gosh everyone was crying in the room too! It was so perfectly about Geralt and Yen, and just described their love so perfectly too! I knew instantly what it was about from the beginning...
"You flee my dream come the morning
Your scent - berries tart, lilac sweet
To dream of raven locks entwisted, stormy
Of violet eyes, glistening as you weep"
And the first line of the next part... "The wolf I will follow into the storm."
I'll keep you updated as I play through some more Witcher tonight and tomorrow night! And you'll have to let me know how Batman goes, as I can't believe that's already around the corner now too! Where does the time go?! Before we know it, it will be November already lol!
The mods are game changing to me though! I remember mods to change the looks of Lidia and other characters to where they were so much prettier, and shoot, I've even seen then in super sexy lingerie running around the game with you like that lol! The mods to make amazing custom weapons and really cool looks for your character from the face to the clothes they can wear, are really interesting to me and I'll be giving them a try, for sure! They will probably even have mods to customize your house with nice features, so it doesn't look so much like a shack I guess! But as we said, I want to enjoy the "vanilla" game first, because as amazing as that will be, think of how hilariously out of place a beach house would be in Fallout 4 with tile floors and granite countertops, and flat screen TV's in every room! LOL! But still, it will be great fun to play with though.
I completely adore Ciri's voice too, and Yen's, and Triss's for that matter! They represent each of the characters so well. Especially with Ciri, you can hear the energetic and youthful beauty in her voice. I've said it before, but you have a great voice yourself Bigg! Have you ever looked into career paths toward that? Or what you would have to do to start training for it? There's got to be online sites where you can upload some voice samples, and where Developers can listen and contact you from there. It's definitely worth looking into!
Yeah I've seen videos of some of those Skyrim mods, oh my gosh I laughed so hard! I remember something that would shoot wheels of cheese, it might have been a bow and arrow set? I think I might have even seen a video featuring Master Chief as the playable character in Skyrim. This will be hilarious if anything even remotely similar comes to Fallout 4!
The Dudu character looks just like his actor! Ha! I was on YouTube and under "recommended" videos there was one of an interview with Doug Cockle. He doesn't naturally talk like Geralt at all! He was talking normal, but then he could turn on the raspy voice of Geralt whenever. I kind of had a feeling, because I've noticed in the game when Geralt yells, sometimes he loses that deep husky voice. There have been times that he's yelled, and I've actually thought to myself, "That didn't sound like Geralt at all! Hmmm.." But I would always talk like that if I were him. If I were in a restaurant, I would love to order lunch as Geralt of Rivia LOL! How cool would that be! Oh man, I agree with you, Geralt has a very sexy voice. It's part of his whole appeal, I think. Personally, I love that sound that his voice has. It's the same sort of rough, raspy voice that Adam Jensen had in Deus Ex. I love it.
So Ciri gets a special ability that she unlocks at the end? I remember Geralt saying something about how she can travel between worlds or something like that? He was even having a hard time explaining it lol. But it sounds very interesting and I can't wait to see it. I'm really looking forward to that!
That's so crazy that the first two fights at the end are the hardest, and then the third and fourth are the easiest! From recent memory, the final boss fight in Kingdoms of Amalur was the same! I was completely confused, I thought, there is no way that was it. The game can't seriously be over now? The final boss fight was so easy, I didn't even get hit once. The fights leading up to that were much harder, where I actually died trying to get through them lol! So it sounds similar. Hmmm, so strange! Well at least I know now that once I get past the first two fights, it won't be as bad after that. That's good!
When I fought the Greedy God, as long as I stayed on my half of the basement, he wouldn't cross the imaginary line in the middle and come to my side! He kept running and jumping around, but wouldn't come to me at all. So I spammed him with Igni and a few quick sword slashes. I do wish there were more Sylvan's in the game though, and they're interesting and fun to fight regardless.
I think I shall kiss Triss for sure during the fireworks too. This all makes me want to get back to the main story! But I feel like I still have too much to do in Velen before I leave to head to Skellige! Ahhh! But yes I will be watching out for the Gwent tournament, I do remember there are the 3 cards I have to win there, so I'll make a manual save before each opponent! I can't wait! Do you get an actual Geralt of Rivia card for your Gwent deck? I finally have a good deck now that seems to be beating all of the opponents I find lately.
