Games: The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 - The Wild HuntFinished The Witcher 3 including both DLCs yesterday, 3rd Nov. 2018.  

Oh my god! This game is perfect!

It’s not that the landscape graphic is simply breathtaking. I deliberately walked around and refused to ride on Roach. Just to get the immersion in this detailed feature-rich world.

It’s not that the developers packed detail after detail into this game. E.g. Geralt is growing a beard if you are not going to the barber every now and then. Even after 200 hours of gameplay I still see new details. This is amazing!

It’s not that the gameplay is rightfully balanced. I finished the game at the hardest level but one. Rolling, dodging light and heavy attacks, etc. all are fluent. It’s a feast for the eyes to see the Witcher fight.

It’s not that there ain’t stupid “go there, bring me this” side quests. Even the simplest job goes into an intriguing mini adventure with twists and turns. The main quest in the main game but also in both DLCs is great!

… and sometimes hilarious. Remember the 3 drunken witchers trying to invite sorcerers to their party via the crystal telescopes? Or talking to Roach after using a hallucinatory drug?

It’s not that the world is immense and there are tons of things to do.

It’s all of the above and much, much more.

This game is incredible. One of the best games I ever played.

Games: The Book of Unwritten Tales

The Book of Unwritten TalesFinished “The Book of Unwritten Tales” on 15th March 2018 – again, a second time.

This is a real the nice adventure to play on the market. You switch between the characters of Wilbur (a naive gnome), Ivo (a sexy elven maid) and Nate (a scoundrel and moreover a philanderer). With these three you try to save the world from the wrath of the witch Mortroga. That’s pretty much all to the story to say.

Yet, the developers packed the way to save the world with a lot of gags and laughs which are not exaggerated or intrusive. Every now and then references to modern pop culture are made with a wink.

The riddles are rather easy to solve and the whole game is fluently solved. The ending, however, is rather sudden.

All in all a lovely adventure in a beautiful fairytale world and absolutely worthwhile a trip.
