Which dub did you use for the Witcher series? Polish or English?
>>
You could probably count on one hand the amount of people on /v/ that speak Polish
>>
>>322737410
But you can listen to Polish VO with English subtitles if you want
>>
>>322737217
English, there is no reason for me to listen to it any other language. It's a medieval fantasy game, they can speak in made up languages, any accent, deep voices, light voices, preferably a mix of all, and it will work. Understanding the language spoken is simply better in regards to this genre (with the exception of an obvious made up language within the fantasy world)

It's not atmospheric to one language either, even if it is a Polish developed game based on a Polish medieval fantasy series, because it borrows elements from all over the middle ages and mostly tolkien-esque stuff anyway.

Compare this to say, a WW2 game where you play as the Germans or Russians, it's just lame to give them a generic German or Russian accent and they speak English. I speak neither German nor Russian, but if I played such a game and it was dialogue heavy, yes, I would absolutely use subtitles and the correct language to the speaker.

Medieval fantasy, it doesn't really matter to me. The English dub sounds fine to me, except for TW1, but that was because of the low budget, so it's from a technical aspect and not a talent one. Also, Polish does not sound good to my ears. Like I said, I don't speak German either, but I can definitely listen to Germans, or French, or Spanish. Doesn't sound bad to me.
>>
I tried polish for a while but all characters sounded the same to me.

It was amusing but not amusing enough so I changed it back.
>>
>>322737217
Doesnt matter which language you play it in. FOR SOME REASON no-one noticed how fucking amazing the engine does at lip synching. Even in japanese it the program does an amazing job at finding the correct mouth movements.

Crazy hats of to whoever coded that part of the engine.

The original Japanese of course. Dubs are never better than subs.

>>

german sounds so fucking stupid
>>
>>322739394
Not sure. Japanese Geralt is a bit gravelly too. For some reason a lot of english voice actors think that a long road traveled means a raspy voice. See it in games all the time.

I obviously used the superior Japanese dub
>>
>>322737217
English, found it to be better overall.

Don't get me wrong, I know Polish is a complex language so it doesn't sound right with theatrical performances, but compare the English voice actors with the Polish voice actors for Witcher 2 and Witcher 3 (especially the Wild Hunt warriors) and there is a big damn difference between the two.

I like the Witcher in polish, the Witcher is polish after all, it flows better, every scene clicks better because of it, but English is superior (not in Witcher 1 obviously).

With that said, Polish Yennefer is best Yennefer, hands down.

Russian dub, Geralt's va is just too good in russian.
>>
Which ones the best? I found English was really good in witcher 2 but I wanted to try something else. Does Polish fit better with the dialogue or can I go full weeb and use Japanese?
>>
>>322740234
Dude, use anything but jap, it's just pure cringe in weeb-speech.
>>
>>322740234
Dont listen to >>322740395 the japanese dub is fine. I'd recommend Polish though. The VAs seem to put more effort in and seem to get the source material better.
>>
Polish is up there with Arabic and Indian in the "worst sounding spoken languages" category.

The English VO was fantastic with only a few outliers.
>>
>>322739064
holy shit polish yennefer is perfect.
Meanwhile japanese yennefer sounds like a college girl, wow what a surprise.
>>
>>322737217
I prefer Geralt's Polish dub a lot more.
>>
>>322737217
You're a pretty big fucking faggot if you speak English but play the game in Polish
That actually makes me cringe

>>322739064
French Vesimir and little Ciri are amazing while Geralt sounds like shit.

Polish Geralt and YEnnefer are both amazing, Visimir is very good, little Ciri sounds like shit.
>>
>>322740769
How is Polish any worse than any other Slavic language? They all sound very similar.

Also Indian isn't a language, you're thinking of Hindi.

English. Polish is not Japanese, it's not exactly pleasant to listen to.

There's a certain messiness to how things are enunciated.

You right, same shit different smell though.

The dubbing companies are fucking awful most of the time, if they made good dubs that didn't deviate from the script and didn't sound crigeworthy as hell I'd watch them.

I know that it isn't the the explicit point of this thread but fuck it, it's a Witcher 3 thread anyway.

What are some of the best side quests in Skellige? It's the area I did the least sidequests in before finishing the main quest and I feel like I missed out. I've only really done Cave of Dreams and a few miscellaneous unremarkable Witcher contracts. Also the stuff with Hjalmar and Cerys of course.

Can you say overrated? TW3 goes to the pile with Bioshock Infinite, GTAV and The Last of Us as yet another game that uses its high end production values and slick execution to try and convince you there's a good game and a rich experience inside it's hollow shell.

I liked it overall, though the combat was a glorified rhythm game and not nearly as tactical as claimed, and the story starts off very slowly.

If I have to rank: Jap > Pol > Rus

Jap is just slightly above Pol, and Pol is close to Rus, so there really isn't that much of a difference between the three. All three versions were sung wonderfully
