The upcoming "The Witcher" show on Netflix


Recommended Posts

(Repost from one of the clubs, just now noticed that the creative stuff forum is still here. Mods feel free to delete my posting over in the club if you want to)

 

To those who haven't seen it yet, looks quite promising.

 

 

If they do this one well it can meet on eye level with GoT. My only complaint is that they made the girl a standard blue-eyed blonde. She's ashen-haired and green-eyed dammit!

Then again, they balance that by giving the official female main char the violet eyes she has in the books so there's that. Guess I'll have to reactivate my old Netflix trial account :)

See the new trailer is out? A lot more swordplay, epic battles and magic mixed in. 

We also have a release date 20 December.

Yep. I'm so excited.

 

I've just finished Witcher 3, The wild Hunt final DLC Blood & Wine.

 

Now I'm going to go back and play on death march. And Get all the Gwent Cards lol

Wild Hunt ist gotta be one of the best games I ever saw and played.

 

Litmus test for the Gwent cards quest: You know where to find the cow? :P

Heard about Dec 20th previously already. :)

 

And from what can be seen already, the Ciri complaint remains the only valid one. Unless one only knows the Witcher world from the games and whines about Triss no longer being a redhead. :D

 

Cashgrab has begun already; book store at Brunswick station had the entire main story books for sale, all with stickers "A Netflix original". Got them all, very lovely-made and sooner or later I'd have bought them all anyway so why not get it over with ;)

No - I've merely heard of this mythical creature.

 

What was your favorite deck?

 

Mine ended up being the Skellige deck. Got my highest scores. Got 199 on a third round once. Didn't need that many points to win, but I taught the opponent a lesson lol.

You find the cow card in Brunwich, in the attic of a barn. Nothing pointing to it, no quest, no nothing. ;)

 

Card is an in-joke referring to one of CDPR's anti-exploit measures. In case you don't know, in early versions of the game you could just kill the cows in White Orchard over and over again and sell their hides. Now... you can do that twice. After the third time the Bovine Defence Force appears (a level 34 or such Chort) and tears you apart. :P

The cow card does the same. It has strengh 0 but when it gets removed from the playing field the BDF takes its place and levels the enemy ;)

 

I prefer Northern Realms, but probably mostly because I was used to it from the very start. All the decks have their strenghts and weaknesses, depends on your preferred playstyle.

Did either of you play throne breaker? Looked quite a different style but seemed highly reviewed. 

 

Played it a bit but there's so much other stuff to play on my list. It's lovely-made. 2D top view game like back in the days but very fitting, good graphics and sound, and all battles and riddles are done via Gwent. Well a very modified Gwent compared to the 3rd game, with lots of extra bells and whistles. Very different game overall.

 

And boy, some of those riddles are fucking hard. You tend to get special rules and a predefined deck for them, and there's usually exactly one way to win. :blink:
