>>323723012 It would be easier to love Dijkstra if he didn't go absolutely full fucking retard at the end, nothing like he was in the books.
Geralt just came back from utterly slaughtering Radovid's best men and thus helping in kill the king, and Dijkstra proclaims that he'll kill all of his friends and that he's backstabbing all of them at the same time. All while having a whole of three chucklefuck guards that die in three hits with him.
>>323727552 I appreciated how none of them were fetch quests or MMO style and had unique stories. Design-wise they're nothing special, but what else can you expect from a witcher? If you want inventive dungeons and puzzle solving quests play something else.
>or do you just have bad taste/lack of vidya experience
>this game is nothing special
Judging from the people who enjoyed it, it would seem you're the minority here who didn't enjoy it. But of course you're the one with the patrician taste so who cares right?
>>323726521 A couple of them really aren't though. Letting ciri face the lodge alone without any backup when Geralt knows Phillipa engages in mind control and all sorts of other manipulative shit doesn't seem very smart. Destroying your most important ally's lab for no reason other than Ciri getting her feelings hurt is another stupid choice. I get what they were trying to do but those two choices were pretty iffy.
That's wrong though. Everyone agrees that the game has the least repetitive sidequests in an open world game in a long time. Well, everyone that played the game at least.
>helping a troll that's been recruited by the Redanians paint the flag on his fortress >accepting a contract to clear a manor of monsters, only to find an old witcher friend has set up shop there >lifting the curse off of a werewolf with everlasting hunger and eternal life >running into a nilfgaardian deserter about to be lynched by peasants, slaughtering his attackers only to realize you killed three men to save one
Would you prefer "PLEASE RETRIEVE MY FAMILY'S SWORD FROM A RANDOMIZED BANDIT HIDEOUT" quests instead?
If you had to walk 10 minutes between each objective then sure, but having a lot of content isn't "artificial length". Especially when considering most of the side quests had quite a decent amount of effort put into their presentation, you can't say that is some low effort attempt at artificial content it should be seen as a good thing.
>>323730214 Sidequests? Oblivion, if you want to talk TES. Witcher 2 had some good ones. The major sidequests (chasing Crach's kids or fucking around with Keira, for example) in W3 were out-fucking-standing, but those were fairly rare, especially compared to the shitty witcher-sense contracts.
>>323731564 Even then the witcher contracts all have their own story or spin to them. There isn't a single contract in the game that's just "go here and kill this monster", there's always something more to it.
>>323732702 4000 crowns which is chump change by that point. If the economy system in this game wasn't so fucked with loot up the ass and contracts paid less it would be a ton of money and make sense lore-wise.
>>323732502 It is pretty convenient but to be fair a huge focus of the series is on the wildly different worlds and how they interact with each other because of the conjunction of spheres. It kind of has a built in reason for there to be a character that can teleport.
>>323729331 Everyone? Only witcher fanboys can say something that stupid.
All the hunter quests are the same: >Talk to a shitty NPC >Someone is death or dissapeared >Go to see what's the problem >Search and read the repetitive clues >Kill de monster (there are quests even with the same monsters)
The "?" quests the same, >go to "?" >inspect corpse >take the key and "read" the letter >open the chest
Only the secundary NPC quests are good and have variety
>>323733609 >only the secondary npc quests are good and have variety And they're also plentiful. The witcher contracts serve as a way to get gold, the story behind them is just a bonus. The secondary quests and main quests are what makes the game great. I can't think of another RPG released recently that executes this as well as this game did
>>323733393 In the bad ending Geralt assumes that Ciri died because she never came back from the white frost. The last scene is Geralt basically committing suicide by letting a horde of monsters come at him without doing anything to defend himself.
The empress ending is definitely bittersweet but I wouldn't necessarily consider it bad. Ciri is assuming her potential and responsibility as an empress in order to change the world for the better.
I thought witcher 1 was the best of them although it had the worst gameplay. The story was a lot better. Hunting a monster was way more interesting, and having to research them + prep time was pretty cool. The choices felt like they had gravity.
>>323722741 I dunno, shitty retard wraiths that can't stop teleporting themselves for two fucking seconds that are supposedly countered by Yrden but won't ever remain in the fucking circle for more than two seconds while they do their broken retard double attacks with six gorillian range really soured the questline for me.
>>323736926 CDPR are ending Geralt's story and effectively retiring him but left the Witcher franchise open. They have the next Witcher 3 expansion to work on then Cyberpunk 2077 so don't expect anything with the Witcher IP soon.
