    It seems criminal now that The Witcher is in the midst of something of a renaissance, what with it having its own Netflix series and all, but Aoife has never played the original game. So, Zoe's here to show her the ropes as the two investigate how it all holds up. No coins tossed, and no cats harmed.

I think the Dev missed a trick by not writing in a twin brother for Lambert and naming him Butler.

-What an ending. Always interesting to see the female view of such things. Having only played Witcher 2 and 3 I now understand why Yennifer throws that bed out the window in Witcher 3. She slept in the same room. I'm impressed that the developers kept the architecture true from Witcher 1 to Witcher 3 for Kaer Morhan. That is dedication to accuracy.

I've been in this Witcher universe for so long, and still learned a lot from this one. I live in the moment in games, and don't pick up much lore. Am I a bad person? Who cares.

Ian doesn't get into the office that often because his route is considerably longer, but when he is there they will often film at least one video to be released in the future & do a stream.

I never played the first Witcher game, thank you for picking it up! By the way, the "a" in "Blaviken" is pronounced like "aa", or like the "o" in "boss". It's supposed to be "å", so "Blåviken" which means "Blue Bay" in Scandinavian languages. I have no idea why it's called that, though.

I'd say it's closer to the oa in oar. The extra letters are so hard to explain to people whose languages don't include those sounds.

I guess my computer was worse than a potato at the time, because I could only run The Witcher 1 at the absolute lowest graphical settings allowed (and even then it was framey), and I couldn't run The Witcher 2 at all. The idea of being able to play The Witcher 3 on a PC was a thing of myth and legends. Thankfully the PS4 was an option instead.

The handy thing about a tutorial is the way it teaches you the controls, rather than just have you listen to the person next to you who's wrong.

Nothing to do with tradition, the trial of grasses (the trial you need to pass in order to become a Witcher) has killed every single woman that has tried to pass it. Most men die trying to pass it too, hence why there's not many Witchers.

Been a while since I heard Aoife squeak with laughter. Last time I really remember was the Hitman briefcase video. You have to really catch her off guard or punch-drunk-sleepy. Keep it up Zoe 'cause Ian's dad jokes just make her roll her eyes mostly.

Team Shani here. Currently playing Witcher 3 for the first time, probably over half way through. Been watching you guys playing through FFVII, good to see the shoe on the other foot for these. Also, that is not the Director's Cut of W1. The grpahics are a big step up in W2, also the controls are much better. W3 is also a step up for both but not as big of a leap.

It's annoying that they talk over dialogue, but w/e, that's not my biggest complaint. My biggest complaint is too many times they go to a perpective where the sofa covers up half of the gameplay.

I know the combat system isn't great by modern standards (I first played Witcher 1 in 2008 so it felt fine back then) but its more enjoyable than this video makes it appear. This is almost painful to watch. Its all about timing, there was a tutorial message that explained this, and yet I can hear Aoife just mashing the mouse button, and there's constantly messages flashing up on screen saying "Too fast!" which she's ignoring. Also you need to switch styles, strong vs heavy armor, fast vs light armour, group vs multiple enemies, otherwise your attacks do basically no damage.

Right? It's annoying when people give this combat system crap *before* even understanding it. The tutorial area can be rough, and it looks bad at the beginning because you don't have the more advanced combos yet... it took me a majority of the prologue section on my first try, but after I got what I had been doing wrong, I found it decently enjoyable and original, albeit kind of basic. Using the hotkeys to switch styles is definitely a must.

I think Ciri is the closest the books got to a female Witcher. She's all but one for the fact that she never did The Trial of the Grasses. In the witcher 3 if you chose the ending where she becomes one, she can apparently drink Black Blood without consequence so I guess she is one?

You should really read the books, I do suggest the audio book versions as Peter Kenney does an amazing job of bringing the characters alive but you’ll learn so much about the world and where the games fit because they do fit into the world in a way. It explains the way sorcerers kind of live, how the Witchers are essentially made (I chose those words specifically) and it’s just such an amazing series of books. You have noooo idea how much I want to go nerd out giving you lore but I promise I’m not gonna be that guy. It’s just an amazing series of books and not just blood and guts etc

Those bandits are wearing hoods with mantles, rather than wimples. Very comfy, warm, dry and practical - if any piece of medieval/renaissance attire needs to make a comeback, it's the hood & mantle combo.

I've always found hoods annoying in terms of their sensory deprivation though. You can't hear properly with a hood up, can't locate the source of sounds, & they also cut down on your peripheral vision. Plus, on a windy day they can be annoying too. A firmly screwed on wide-brimmed hat is superior in my opinion.

sooo, law of surprise: if the client cannot pay, the witcher can ask for the law of surprise, this means that when the client returns home, they owe the first unexpected 'treasure' they receive. This could be a bumper harvest, a lucky coin (found on the floor), an unexpected win, or, as is shown in the games and series, an unexpected child... fate, destiny, convenience... you know. :P
