The Witcher: Playthrough (1)
So I bought The Witcher: Enhanced Edition during Steam Summer Sales. For only €1,99 wooop! I immediately liked the darker setting. And the mature language (“Your mother sucks dwarven cock.”) and the more mature everything. Lol, sounds immature of me? Ahahah.
The second thing I really like are the choices. And that there isn’t always a good one and an evil one. Sometimes you just have to choose the lesser evil. Almost always I’m a good player, choosing the morally right (for me) ways of dealing with things. I find it hard to play an evil character. But normally I do that on my second playthrough. And even then I’m not necessarily evil. Then I play egocentric, always wanting the biggest reward and threatening NPC’s to give me more gold in stead of slaying a dragon for free.
I kinda fucked up my first playthrough. I progressed to far into the main quest and suddenly I found myself in jail in Chapter II. I quickly realised I didn’t finish all the side quests I had in the first chapter. I tried loading some save games but they didn’t bring me back far enough. So I deleted all my save games and started a new game. Yep, I’m that kind of person. I need to explore everything and do everything. And do everyone. Uh I mean kill all the bandits.
This time I will also try to not look up every quest. Not to see how or where to complete it (I like to find that out on my own) but to see the different ways how to complete it. Like in the different choices in conversations. But I look it up after I’ve finished the quest. And if I made the wrong choice, I force myself to not quickload. (I always quicksave before I talk so someone. (Why isn’t that possible in real life?!))
Some choices I made:
Follow Triss to the laboratory in stead of fighting the Frightener with Vesemir. Not because she’s a girl, noo. The laboratory. It’s uh, important, you know. Right?
Of course I saved Vesna from the rapists.
I let the Squirrels take the goods. They’re probably up to no good with them, but else I would be a racist. And I’m nonhuman too actually.
I decided Abigail wasn’t as guilty as the rest. She was the lesser evil. I had to kill the others, but they attacked me.
Blabla blaa games bla.
I approve of your #dwarven cock tag.
