Here's a revelation: killing Letho was the right thing to do. He was a killer, that makes him no better in Geralt's eyes than a common bandit - well, apart from the fact that he's a witcher, but still.

Saved Yen, then spared Geralt and Triss. Didn't deliberately frame Geralt, he was just in the way and even then he didn't ambush Geralt

As much as I hate Nilfgaardian fucking shits, I'm glad I didn't kill him

Those are good points, but even then he murdered people for money, even the blameless Foltest. Sparing him because he helped you might be reasonable if that's what your morals say, but he shouldn't be Geralt's friend.

It wasn't even that it was the right thing to do; it was the smart thing to do. Letho was a liability. At that point he was a tool to the Emperor, and witchers are dangerous fucking tools. What if the Emperor had told Letho "Well, I need you to do just one more thing before I give you back your school: finish the job and kill Geralt of Rivia."?

I think MGS V is more fun than Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 combined, even though the entire third act is missing.

At least there is shit to do and fun to have in MGS V, unlike Witcher 3, where all you do is cruise for pussy and listen to boring dialogue.

Letho's motivation is that he's going to revive the school of the viper. That in turn will create more witchers to combat the increasing number of monsters in the world, which in turn will save innocent lives.

It's very much a "ends justify the means" logic, but it's sound.

You literally cannot compare a game built around gunplay to a game built around swordplay and say "X game has better combat!"

You're right, FO4 does have better shooting than Witcher 3, because there is no shooting in Witcher 3. You're a fucking moron.

Fallout 4 is just as boring as Witcher 3. I could barely get through either of them. It's like these developers are following the same stale, shitty formula.

>Spend 90% of your development time and budget on crafting a huge, pretty, empty world.
>Spend the last 10% of your time and money on shoehorning boring quests, shitty voice actors, and weak mechanics into your huge, pretty, empty world.
>Run out of time while crunching and be forced to release an unfinished product to hype-driven fanboys and oblivious newcomers.

This is the next-gen formula, and it sucks. Somehow, these games are getting critical acclaim, though. It makes very little sense from a gamer's perspective.

>>324273814
not the op but I felt like I genuinely am missing something from the combat system.

Getting my shit wrecked with foglets, downers, etc. I am barely at level 6 but I am just not "getting it"...

Against humans it seems fairly straight forward and I am able to deflect/parry most attacks and counter attack nicely, but there still seems like there is some sort of latency to the counter/parry system. On screen with more than 3 enemys i'm just rolling around and quick attacks.

In comparison to other major releases in the past 5-10 years, I appreciate that TW3 doesnt treat the player like a dipshit console babby with cliche' story lines/fetchquests etc. The lore is pretty deep and the game itself is very meticulous in nature, there are some minor flaws imo, none that make the game unplayable.

all this hype and overpraising just kind of sets you up for kind of a letdown, i'd give it a solid 8/10

The problem was that the same music was used for all fights. It sounds awesome for fighting a large monster, but hearing it after fighting a pack of wolves 50 times gets tedious.

First time I played The Witcher 2, I was so paranoid about the dangers of the forests surrounding Flotsam (even though there were elven watchposts and watchways) that I felt I needed to help defend it, especially since nekkers and endregas spawn so close to the town borders.

I initially disarmed and stole a bunch of traps that were laying about en masse, but I eventually re-armed and replanted them all over each path leading to town from the forest side... fearing an imminent attack from monsters.

It was comfy and spooky as fuck, straddling the border of the town at night keeping watch with whatever few nightwatch guards there were.

Just one of the things that make me love this game.

Why are you doing this? Why are you spamming Fallout 4 images in a Witcher thread? Seriously, why? Are you mad that we're discussing this instead of a game you like? Are you upset it won GOTY? What spurs an anon to waste his time and effort spamming unrelated images in a thread just for the sake of shitposting? What kind of sad, unfulfilled, boring, pathetic excuse for a life do you have to have to do something like this?

What's worse is you just made another generic waifu character in it and you're using Piper - that's what every Bethdrone on /v/ did with the game. You can't even shitpost originally.

>Wait, you think that Fallout 4 had a pretty world?

Yes. As far as aesthetics and modeling go, the world in Fallout 4 is both fully developed and artfully rendered. Nevertheless, the world can't cover for the game's weak mechanics and lousy design.

>Witcher 3 has pretty great voice actors

It would have been the same experience, regardless of whatever deadpan delivery the developers told the actor playing Geralt to do. Voice acting does nothing to service gameplay. A boring game with great voice acting is still a boring game.

>>
>>324272326
whats the best build to go with in this game?
>>
>>324277405
problem is that the game sometimes feels like shit due to 2 factors.

-"artificial difficulty". I know this is a meme but bosses on that game are designed to fuck you over in the ass. This is a trend that continues in W2 also. I don't know how you're playing it but on hard, most bosses on that game are designed to be cheesed for minutes while running like a retard drinking potions. This is enfazised most on w1 because Pain. Pain will fuck you in the ass

-Point and click. Sometimes, you'll want to attack a mob with the point and click system and geralt will start walking like a retard towards it while you get stomped by EVERYTHING in the room. When he gets there he might not even attack the god damn thing
>>
>>324276680
IMMERSE YOURSELF

So many people say they hated act 1, but act 1 is a favourite of mine. First making it to the tiny village at the outskirts of Vizima, with ghosts and ghouls roaming around the offbeat paths...

I loved carrying a torch and just staying near the lit areas/nightguardsmen patrols at night, maybe venturing out from one scattered settlement to another if I felt well prepared to make the journey.

I wouldn't even know what it would feel like to be an NPC who lived in that village being in constant fear of monster attacks at night.

You spare him because its literally none of your business at that point. There is no contract for you to kill him. There is no reason to kill him. You were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Only if your Geralt is revengeful it makes sense to kill him.

You don't get it. Triss doesn't love Geralt. She just wants Geralt to love her. It's an obsession. You should read some of the internal monologue Triss has.
She lied to Geralt about Ciri.
She didn't tell Geralt what he was doing previously even though it could have restored his memory.
Under that friendly exterior show, she's a narcissistic sociopath with clear signs of insanity.

I just told you. The game isnt canon to the books. The books arent canon to the game. They are different works. They are only similiar, not related. Game Geralt is you, not the book Geralt.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-11-06-ever-wondered-what-the-author-of-the-witcher-books-thinks-about-the-games
"The game - with all due respect to it, but let's finally say it openly - is not an 'alternative version', nor a sequel. The game is a free adaptation containing elements of my work; an adaptation created by different authors," he noted.

"Adaptations - although they can in a way relate to the story told in the books - can never aspire to the role of a follow-up. They can never add prologues nor prequels, let alone epilogues and sequels.

"Maybe it's time to set the matters straight," he went on. "'The Witcher' is a well made video game, its success is well deserved and the creators deserve all the splendour and honour due. But in no way can it be considered to be an 'alternative version', nor a 'sequel' to the witcher Geralt stories.

"If we level the field between books and their adaptations in other media, only the former can be the ones telling a story,"

"There can never be a different relation between a book and its adaptation, other than the one that without the book the adaptation would not exist at all.

Literally unrelated work that borrows element from the books.

That's like saying The Lord of the Rings books aren't canon in The Lord of The Rings Online because the Tolkiens are technophobes and hate every adaptation there is.
The Witcher books are canon in the games.
The Witcher games aren't canon in the books.

Source material isnt prequel. And thats what it is. They took the material, they edited it, they made a new version of that material. They took a cutie redhead, they made her even cuter in games. No argument here. They never in the game referenced her having anything like psycho narcissistic obsession so they obviously did not take that "source material"

You are missing the point. Both a prequel and a sequel implies being made after the original work. If it's set before the original, it's a prequel.


An original work being made and set before posterior sequels doenbs't make it a prequel.

Yes. We are so stupid that we try to use logic in arguing at 4chin. I realize how retarded that is considering I am talking with abused yencucks.

Except they only took element of the books for the game. You cant go and assume that the Triss in the game was created as the continuation of Triss from the book when she acts different. You are arguing that she is psycho in the book. Well she isnt in the game. So if your argument is that in book she did something so the game Triss is horrible person, then you are just being wrong. Unless that action is mentioned/referenced in the game.

>Then the question was whether the whole set before the start of the books or their term. A prequel, however, would not give us the ability to leverage many of the characters that Geralt meets for the first time in the books as Ciri, Tennefer or Triss. The solution, therefore, was to create a sort below. For those who read it, the end of the books seems rather short, although it is not entirely clear what happened (not deepen to avoid spoilers, but all those who have played with a little 'attention to the three games already They know what happened).

>We used this lack of clarity to our advantage and concealing it under the veil of amnesia we started with our trilogy, taking us a bit 'of time to define in detail what happened. The Witcher 3, finally, Geralt regains all memory and we believe that the trick has worked pretty well, and the story is quite credible.

Triss in the game acted a lot like Yen. You could see they didnt' dare to mention Ciri or Yennefer since the game was a clean slate and wanted to get waya from the books.

In second and third game they went back to the books and Triss got progressively more like book Triss.

Still irks me that TW3 has levels and too much loot. For a master witcher who has decades of experience why does he need to progress in knowledge and face against scaled enemies and shit. Why is Geralt finding legendary swords every few hours, TW1 had you using the same two or three pieces of armor for the entire game and maybe switching four swords or so? Man I should really find mods for these, or at least they should exist.
>>
>>324284694
The original work I guess. Unless the author had sequels already planned when making it, it stands on it's own.

>>324284953
Yeah, agreed on Alvin too. I guess they just didn't want to alienate people who haven't read the books. Which when the first game was made was pretty much anyone outside Eastern Europe.

Yencucks are the worst and you should have had the option to behead Yen in the third game.

Buts its not an original work as the author is different and it was only used as source material, not as a whole pre-story. I haven no idea how to call it. The point is the author want nothing in common with the game and the game started very differently than the books. They arent continuation.

He's an autistic waifufag. And I'm not throwing the term casually. This is the kind of person which makes the majority of 4chan look fine.

He ignores everything that makes his waifu look bad, in this case, the books. Litearlly a kid covering his ears and screaming.

But why arent you talking about games here? Why arent you talking about the books somewhere where people care and read them? Its as If I went to /lit/ and said that alchemy is superior to signs in book world because you get stronger perk bonuses in games. Thats sounds pretty stupid to me. So why is the other way around acceptable to you? Talking about things from the books in game threads.

Like Witcher threadfs for example? In case you ddin't notice, youa re the only one who doesn't care about the books. Don't speak for others.

>>324289932
Not true Geralt's mom was a sorceress and one of Vilgefortz's parents was a mage it's just that most are and Triss is one who is sterile. Geralt is sterile which is why destiny quite literally had to gift him and Yen Ciri since they where both sterile. Either way that is just a terrible pic and ruins Geralt's relationship with Ciri.
>>
>>324290801
Do they have to do something special or are they just one of the lucky, fertile sorceresses?

Nice that looks pretty fucking cool. Still hoping for a Codex in Witcher 4 or whatever.

Now that I think of it Cyberpunk 2077 could really benefit from one too.

>>324291619
Yen spent her whole life trying to find a cure for her sterility and never found one, there is nothing that can be done. Some sorceresses like Geralt's mom are just lucky though it is very rare.

more info on mages being sterile

>Most of us wizards lose the ability to procreate due to somatic changes and dysfunction of the pituitary gland. Some wizards — usually women — attune to magic while still maintaining efficiency of the gonads. They can conceive and give birth — and have the audacity to consider this happiness and a blessing.

Is there a reason that the gameplay in this is tedious as fuck? Does it get any better?

I'm level 6 and doing main story stuff because sidequests are too high of a level and it takes quite a few hits to kill some enemies while I die in 3ish. Even worse when an enemy has a regen ability. I had to bump the difficulty down from hard because it was so tedious I just wasn't having fun. It wasnt even super hard, just really tedious

Just started witcher 3 on hardest difficulty because I heard it was good at that difficulty.

I'm at the noonwrath quest by the well and she's kicking my ass in 3 hits I have no idea if I'm supposed to be doing this quest? I'm lvl 1 and she's lvl 3.
