I got lucky & found them pre-game. Airports would often have them at eye level when I was younger. Same for the Metro series actually... hmmm...

the whole "get woke, go broke" thing is 100% true. Why? Probably because its woefully apparent when a product is pandering.
I've just played the games.
Didn't finish the first, liked the second quite a bit and awaited the third with great anticipation and it exceeded my expectations. After the first game, the second exceeded my expectations as well.
Partly because I expected the games to be a continuation of the previous one. The story was, but the games were different, bigger, better.

I didn't read the books and they are probably better than this will be. I also won't before I watch this. Not just because of the time trade off, but also because I don't want to heft a new set of standards to judge this show by.
I'm pretty sure this show is made for more than just those who have already read the books. I also like that it is based on the books, which I do not have direct knowledge of, but still have respect for.
This way the show can be different from the game and still not let me down by not being true to my comparisons.
It's not going to be literal or perfect, it's Netflix. Hopefully my plan for intentional ignorance will pay off.

I can read the books after and I won't have any problems with them not matching up to the Netflix series.

Thats why I never ended up picking up the books. I love the witcher lore I know today and don't want to mess with that. It ruined Game of thrones for me, I watched the first couple episodes then read all the books then the show was just crap. I only started watching again cuase they went ahead of the books.

it'll be fine, either way.

yep, #1 and #2 were definitely more like sneak peaks of what's to come. I'd be hard pressed to recommend anyone play one, if they started @ 2 or 3, unless they're absolute fanatics.

in other news, cyberpunk is meh. All I care about is W4: Ciri's story.

I had never heard of The Witcher until I played the first game. Immediately after playing the first I sought out all the books I could find that were translated.
Been a huge fan ever since.

It doesn't hold up super great nowadays but I really enjoyed the first game when it came out. Played it so much. If I remember right it was running on a modified Bioware engine or something.

“Go then, there are other worlds than these.”

“Every gun makes its own tune... Alive or dead, it's your choice.”

Calvera: So do I. We're in the same business.
Vin: Only as competitors.

yep, I remember finishing it and being like "EPIC DEMO, GIMME A FULL GAME!" then with #2 being like "AMAZING, NOW OPEN UP THE WORLD! SCOPE X10!" witcher 3 "FANFLIPPING TASTIC! NOW FLESH OUT THAT CIRI YOU TEASED US WITH!!!"

something tells me Witcher 4 will be actual next gen, unlike CP2077

to quote the interwebs -

REDengine is a game engine developed by CD Projekt Red exclusively for their nonlinear role-playing video games. It is the replacement of the Aurora Engine CD Projekt Red had previously licensed from BioWare for the development of The Witcher.

so yes, you're correct

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.

For those of you who have played the games but haven't read the books - in my opinion these games didn't really miss much from the books. The games are a fairly faithful adaptation, and the only noticeable absence is that in the games, the sex, violence, racism, and language was toned down a bit to appeal to a wider audience. I can't remember anything too terrible that happened in the books but not the games, but CD Projekt caught a lot of flack for the "sex cards" in Witcher 1, and it kind of forced them to play it safe so that they could actually sell games without the threat of national bans or boycotts. Things you can put into a book don't necessarily translate well to a screen.

With that said, Dec 20 is my first day of christmas break. I know what I'll be doing

You're reading the GOT books first had no affect on David Benioff and D. B. Weiss ruining the show. They ruined it all on their own.

thanks for that, I had assumed the cards went away due to poor taste / ESRB rating, but I still think it should be an epic tier of gwent
