>geralt says he loves her because she brings about a peace in him that no one else can, and i think that plays off really well in spite of pity he might feel for her being pathetic.
It's really not very believable at all if you know more about the characters. That's one of those things where I think they just thought it would come across as weird if this wasn't a choice offered to the players even if it's hard to justify in-character.
even though i get the impression from these threads that she's a manipulative bitch, actually, and it makes no god damn sense that geralt would ever choose her over yenn or just pure solitude.
Manipulative bitch is a bit harsh. She's manipulative in the way a child is manipulative, not in the way that say, Philippa is manipulative. She's emotional, naive, and weak willed in teh face of her peers so she does stuff like tell totally unsustainable lies just to enjoy the moment with Geralt and puts the inevitable future out of her mind, or is easily convinced to be party to horrible things by people like Philippa who are strong willed and manipulative, all while Triss convinces herself it's really for the best.
Triss is deliberately meant to contrast with Yennefer's strong will and independent attitude.
>So, do you consider Witcher 3 your GOTY /krw/ ?
Easily. GOTY and RPG of the decade.
>oh, i always figured she was the anti-sorceress because she was just more open and heart-on-her-sleeves.
That's part of it, but also the other things you've said.
>did she betray out of dishonesty with herself, or was it more deliberately manipulative?
Both, under considerable peer pressure (which she's extremely vulnerable to) from Philippa Eilhart.
okay, see, i think that adds a load of needed depth to her character in the witcher 3, and i guess the devs just feel like she already had plenty of time in the spotlight in the last game, and thus didn't need to spend any more time with her this one, but I really do think there's a LOT to work with there in terms of a romance that's actually meaningful and makes a lot of sense, but they just DID NOT sell that AT ALL. they got around the problematic aspects of her romantic relationship with geralt in the wild hunt just by completely ignoring problems she presents there. tackling those head-on would have made that romance-arc WAY better than the yennefer one.
The amount of work needed to make that romance arc believable at that point would have dominated considerable parts of the game's plot and taken a ton of time.
> tackling those head-on would have made that romance-arc WAY better than the yennefer one.
I don't think it was ever meant to be better. Geralt and Yennefer have already had their romance arc mostly and their reunion is the focus, not on them suddenly developing new feelings for each other. The writing around Triss was mostly done with the assumption that it's a send off as far as I can tell.
>tackling those head-on would have made that romance-arc WAY better than the yennefer one.
Correct me if I'm wrong but you didn't actually hook Geralt and Yennefer up, did you? It changes a decent amount of their later interactions if you had Geralt re-commit there.
hey man, i'm still here making a fool of myself for criticizing the writing in the witcher 3 despite not having played the other 2.
i should say that i still so thoroughly enjoyed this game that i played it twice to be as comprehensive as possible, and even sailed out to every single one of those damn screaming siren infested, cardboard-beam boat-breaking, inexplicably remote smuggler's caches.
>hey man, i'm still here making a fool of myself for criticizing the writing in the witcher 3 despite not having played the other 2.
there's books to, you know. The games are all sequels to the books.
>and even sailed out to every single one of those damn screaming siren infested, cardboard-beam boat-breaking, inexplicably remote smuggler's caches.
do you hate yourself?
>The writing around Triss was mostly done with the assumption that it's a send off as far as I can tell.
That's what I got, not to hate on Triss but the game does put the onus on the player to convince her to stay.
i didn't the first time, although i did the second one, and it just seemed par for the course, and triss just seemed to be like "okay, it's not gonna happen, so i'm moving on."
that doesn't make her inconsistent with what i'm hearing. i wouldn't expect her to have acted differently - she definitely wouldn't have tried to break up their relationship or something unless she was guided or goaded to.
i just fucking hate question marks.
TRUE LOVE, LITERALLY PERFECT BEST WAIFU
Is that good enough?
Yeah she's just a pathetic individual which acts as a foil to Yen. She's an interesting character it's just she's pathetic.
>went to fight at sodden
>throws up and didn't do any fighting , forgot all her spells besides teleport and was going to flee and leave her friends before getting burnt to a crisp
>falls in love with a man who she seduced with magic for a really fucked up reason
>this man also happens to be her best friend significant other and he never returns those feelings
>goes to kaer morhen and constantly tries to seduce geralt who turns her down left and right
>her diarrhea adventures
>being a puppet to phillipa and the lodge
>betraying Yen (mulitple times), Geralt, and Ciri
>crying when she realized just how pathetic she really was in the 7th book
She did start to redeem herself in the last few pages of the series by coming back to her friend's side after initially running away but then the witcher 1 starts and she loses any progress she made.
>manipulates geralt with amensia into having a relationship even though she knew how he feels
>being a puppet to the lodge again
>being a phil apologist even after all the shit that she did
She doees take a step away from the lodge at the end of the second game so good for her and she's not as pathetic as she was in the books but she still cracks under pressure and overall comes across as pathetic just not as bad as she used to be.
You said you wonder why Geralt would ever choose triss, well the answer is he would never in a trillion years choose Triss over Yen. It's not even a competition between the two.
It's a start. Where's 4k Anon? Here I'll help
Best womanlet :3
>I don't think it was ever meant to be better.

I totally get you. I don't think it necessarily SHOULD have been better, actually. I think it's totally reasonable if the writers wanted to tell a story in which Geralt and Yenn are re-united and Triss is a send-off. I think it's completely reasonable to just say both of those relationships have already been addressed in the needed way in previous games, and no need to rehash things.
it IS an RPG, though, and they did provide choices to the player. in a perfect world where they wouldn't have to sacrifice other dev time for it, though, it would have been much better to expand the triss relationship in the way that i describe than the shallow one we have as a formality.
>i just fucking hate question marks.
How long did it take? I wanted to do it, but I just gave up after doing a handful.
I'm really curious where 4k anon is from based off his posting times, but I can't figure it out.
this is probably a little stalkerish of me...
>She did start to redeem herself in the last few pages of the series by coming back to her friend's side after initially running away but then the witcher 1 starts and she loses any progress she made.
I disagree. She still has many of her book flaws, but one thing you can't call her in the games is a coward, whereas she was one in the books.
Yeah I get you. If they're gonna give you a choice they might as well put in a decent effort.
Lady of the Lake's banter was great.
>Geralt tries all this corny shit
>Lady keeps turning him down with pithy sayings
>Finally just says "Your ass is beyond compare"
>She likes it and they fuck
I have only screenshots of the Lady from lake
blood = obvious reference to spyfuo line of work but also reference to period
wine = european symbol of joy, fertility
in another words Blood and Wine will be about Geralt impregnating Cantarella ending up with a child and how Geralt's family reacts to this setting
I think he's a Pole as he posts more in Euro prime time than American time, I guess he could be a Brit or German but someone said he used polish style language or something one time and I believe that
How do you like the way the game handled the last wish story in the last wish quest ? It doesn't make much sense to me as Geralt's love for Yennefer isn't a result of Djinn's spell, but the other way around. If he didn't love her, he wouldn't wish their fates to be bound in the first place. This of course implies that the spell Djinn casts does nothing but to make them meet occasionally, like their paths always cross. If that is so, removing the spell shouldn't have any effect on Geralt's feelings about Yennefer.
Maybe Geralt just wished their fates to be bound because he simply wanted to save Yennefer at that moment and he couldn't think of a better way to do it. And somehow the spell contains love between the two. Or CDPR just wanted to make Geralt & Triss relationship possible, without really breaking the lore and the magic was gone.
We don't really know too much about the Djinn's spell, do we ?
>but one thing you can't call her in the games is a coward
this, in TW1 she is a major player in the anti-Salamandra thing and Geralt has to trick her to stop her from joining him at the final fight, in Tw2 she's trying to act against the lodge on her own and then in the end has the potential to speak out against the lodge which is a fairly uncowardly thing to do and in TW3 she stays to save the mages of Novigrad despite acknowledging she could flee on her own.
too fucking long. like 5 hours. no joke. why can't those boats go faster? it was so tedious, and i only did it because i was a completionist. the whole time i was thinking to myself, why am i doing this work? i would never choose to play a game that was just this shit. this is not even compelling. i should stop, but i've already started, and i already got rid of the question marks int he other zones so I HAVE TO. I FUCKING HATE MYSELF.
see, like, i'm glad you told me all of this, even as a person who liked triss more than yen, and i'm actually just kind of disgusted that they put in a choice to be with triss AT ALL in light of that. i guess i can see why i'm the only one in these threads i get the impression that chose triss over yen in my first play-through. it just doesn't make any sense in terms of the story that's been told far.
I liked it. While what you said was true, Yennefer doesn't know that. It's clearly important to her peace of mind to demonstrate that the feelings are genuine, and when she does it turns out well.
If you go the noncanon route, Yennefer's feelings STILL aren't changed, and it feels like Geralt is using the Djinn as an excuse.
Play the games and read the books yourself before forming strong opinions on Triss. Despite her shortcomings she does redeem herself and change over the series and there are plenty of people who still like Triss despite everything she did because of her development arc.
I think it works because people change. I got the impression it was put in there to explain away Geralts super-intense quest to reunite with Yenn at the start of the game despite keeping a possibility that his relationship with Triss can be truly committed. I figure it can easily be explained by the fact that people change, and the Djinn's spell basically forced upon him a contradiction that kept him going after Yenn in spite of his love moving over to someone else.
Can't wait for there to be no Cantarella at all in Blood and Wine and for the waifufags to whine a bunch on /wtc/
>her sex card looks nothing like her
I'm still mad
I get the impression she wanted to meet with Philippa to try to convince her to stop or be convinced that what was happening wasn't the way Triss thought it was. Seems like she was still giving them the benefit of the doubt until she was compressed. Otherwise she would have said something to Geralt beforehand.
>see, like, i'm glad you told me all of this, even as a person who liked triss more than yen, and i'm actually just kind of disgusted that they put in a choice to be with triss AT ALL in light of that. i guess i can see why i'm the only one in these threads i get the impression that chose triss over yen in my first play-through. it just doesn't make any sense in terms of the story that's been told far.
You might be now but it didn't used to be the case. It's just the game has been out quite awhile so the thread is mostly die hard fans that have played all the games and mostly have read at least some of the books. Used to be Trissfans all over the place and horrible waifuwars in the first couple months after release.
Mostly just people that started with TW3 and retained their waifufaggotry when going back tbqh. I mean I like her as a character but not as a person at all, and I say this as someone that used to be a Trissfag.
It really didn't make much sense as the Djinn wish was never about love and removing it would have no effect but eh whatever it was a well done quest and was one of the better ones in the games.
she reminds me of myself and i can relate with her character. Which is why i like Triss i suppose
>tfw the girl i love is getting married
>invited to her wedding
i think you're implying that people that hold on to liking triss do so for shallow reasons, but from what i hear there are ample reasons why the romance can be compelling, the writers just didn't SHOW any of it, and i guess you just have to headcanon it in in the intermissions and the epilogue.
I romance her because I'm a filthy self-insertfag when it comes to game romances and I dislike the idea of romancing Yen more than the idea of Triss. I don't particuarly like either of the romances desu but I find Triss' the most relateable
>tfw the girl i love is getting married
Thats when you admit that you sort of had a thing for her and realise that she tried to come on to you but you turned her down.
as the anon who has only played tw3, and just hearing all this stuff, i think i would still choose triss over yen because i appreciate the unconventional and the problematic in terms of relationships over the logical. i just feel like the writers completely left out all the aspects that would make their relationship strong and believable.
>you turned her down
You read all sorts of horror stories
and I've done it myselfwhere men haven't noticed someone they really like has been trying to flirt and stuff with them and the woman/girls just moved on. Unless by love you mean you admired from afar and played the stereotypical nice guy angle.
>tfw I once thought a girl trying to ask me out was a joke because low self confidence
>i think you're implying that people that hold on to liking triss do so for shallow reasons,
>but from what i hear there are ample reasons why the romance can be compelling,
Any romance can be compelling if you write the characters completely differently.
Don't do this.
>she reminds me of myself and i can relate with her character. Which is why i like Triss i suppose
I'm so sorry.
There's a "voluptuous" character model in the game that's pretty attractive it's just Triss is the only one that uses it among the more prominent women.
>Thats when you admit that you sort of had a thing for her and realise that she tried to come on to you but you turned her down.
This is getting really sad. Are all Trissfags such sad, forlorn people, or is it just 4chan in general that is a well of wasted opportunities and lost potential?
it's an rpg. you can imagine the motivations and the thoughts for characters, and as a player if you want to romance triss, you're REQUIRED to insert certain things that aren't explicitly described in the game, which have no in-game contradictions.
>i think i would still choose triss over yen because i appreciate the unconventional and the problematic in terms of relationships over the logical.
Yen and Geralt's relationship has a ton of that, you just missed 2/3rds of it by not reading the books.
> i just feel like the writers completely left out all the aspects that would make their relationship strong and believable.
To make it "strong and believable" they'd have to completely change both characters.
It's an RPG yeah but you're not playing a blank slate character, you'r playing Geralt, who has established personality traits and motivations. CDPR mostly does a good job of leaving wiggle room on big choices where Geralt might believably do either one depending on your take on his character without the underlying character being changed, but they don't always succeed at this and a few of the choices stick out like a sore thumb.
you really think that people cannot be attracted to triss' personality? have you met REAL people? they're not perfect. human beings do dishonest things constantly. people can fool themselves, they can be manipulated, and they can make mistakes, but that doesn't completely devalue them.
>4chan in general that is a well of wasted opportunities and lost potential
Do you really need to ask that question? Although despite being a trissfag I'm not sad enough to never move on despite someone getting married.
>tfw the characters you relate to the most are Yen and Ciri
>you really think that people cannot be attracted to triss' personality?
If they've read the books? There's always someone, but yeah, I think it's pretty weird since she's consistently portrayed as a pretty weak and pathetic person with little to admire about her.
The Djinn is easy as piss even if you don't throw dimeritium at it, what are you talking about?
>To make it "strong and believable" they'd have to completely change both characters.
If a relationship is neither strong nor believable its not a very good relationship now is it.
Geralt and Yen's relationship is known across the continent for being filled with many highs and lows and having plenty of issues and to make Triss and Geralt's relationship into something it isn't would require them to completely change the characters.
I just realized how much of an edgy faggot I sounded like an this post.
>have you met REAL people? they're not perfect. human beings do dishonest things constantly. people can fool themselves, they can be manipulated, and they can make mistakes, but that doesn't completely devalue them.
Every character in the series is like this. They're just generally portrayed more favorably than Triss is. And honestly, having known people like Triss in real life just makes me dislike her that much more so not sure what your point is there.
I mean there's a reason there wasn't really a Triss fanbase among Sapkowski until the games came out. Book Triss is a bad person, and not in the kind of way people generally enjoy (Like say, Philippa or Vilgefortz)
>If a relationship is neither strong nor believable its not a very good relationship now is it.
I think Yen is more who I want to be, in a way because she's not afraid of standing up for herself and doing what she wants, even if it is kind of abrasive at times.
Might as well add me to the list too
by HAVING choice, there is expected a large element of the player themselves to be part of Geralt. Geralt's solid attachments to both women don't seem go beyond the things they done together as opposed to just how they work personally as a relationship, and the latter is always crucially important, even if rarely so in broad epic stories.
>I just realized how much of an edgy faggot I sounded like an this post.
the first step is realising you have a problem anon
Thanks anons, at least we're not as pathetic as the average /r9k/ and /v/ poster.
i was going to sleep but might as well explain stuff
we've been good friends for like four years now and few months ago she had started to approach to me a little bit differently. We don't usually go out together but i started to take her out for dinners, then she started calling me for breakfast meetings. When i thought all was going too well, and just before i spilled my beans on now usual sunday breakfasts, she told me she has been seeing someone for over a year now and that they're gonna get engaged. I don't think how i felt at that moment can be explained in any way
>I just realized how much of an edgy faggot I sounded like an this post.
You're on 4chan. Lots of people responding to life's hardships by withdrawing from the world in some way here.
by HAVING choice, there is expected a large element of the player themselves to be part of Geralt.
Not really. It's more encouraging people to interpret the existing character. There's a whole huge discussion to have on why, say, Geralt would go with Roche or Iorveth, and all without altering the character by inserting elements of yourself into him. Because it's a believably difficult decision.
> Geralt's solid attachments to both women don't seem go beyond the things they done together as opposed to just how they work personally as a relationship, and the latter is always crucially important, even if rarely so in broad epic stories.
Geralt and Yen do both parts so I don't see what you mean there.
Read the books and play the other games. I think you'll really enjoy them, and you're kind of ruining it for yourself by getting involved in depth in these discussions about stuff you know little about and getting tainted pre-emptively by other people's perspectives.
Triss a shit tho
where did i fuck up anon ? I thought someone was approaching me and i didn't pussy out and decided to go for it
I'm tracking your IP and when it comes out I will find you to say I told you so and rub a giant print-out of Fringilla Vigo in your face while ooking
You fucked up by waiting FOUR FUCKING YEARS
>Not really. It's more encouraging people to interpret the existing character.
I completely understand this point of view, and absolutely concede every single argument you've made.
We're standing on two sides of flaw in the witcher 3. Clearly the way that shoved in a romantic story with Triss was a formality and the way it was done was hugely unsatisfying, uncharacteristic, and unjustified. You may say perfectly reasonably that this should have simply been removed or done in such a way that reveals a fault in Geralt's character that leads him back to Yenn, or I might say that it's completely possible in a 100+ hour game to have justified the Triss romantic arc partly in spite of and partly in benefit of all of her shortcomings.
I think this is a digression, though. I think the original argument was that you were saying people like Triss is entirely shallow, and to that I would just say that people can like her apart from interpreting her as Geralt.
>tfw no spyfu but we get monkey fringilla
This, if you don't make a move within a few months of meeting each other you will usually always just be friends. 4 years is way too fucking long.
>or I might say that it's completely possible in a 100+ hour game to have justified the Triss romantic arc partly in spite of and partly in benefit of all of her shortcomings.
I won't disagree with you there, but I think it would take so much time and effort to do believably as to seriously negatively impact the rest of the story, to the extent that the game would cease to be about Geralt and Ciri and become about Geralt and Triss.
>I think the original argument was that you were saying people like Triss is entirely shallow, and to that I would just say that people can like her apart from interpreting her as Geralt.
Read the books and come back to me on that if you still feel that way.
i developed feelings for her quite recently, not four years ago anon. As i said, she was just a friend and nothing more
Not him, but Trissfags are usually shallow cunts who wouldn't even appreciate a well done romance if they had one, so it's alright. It's sort of like people that chose anyone but Liara in mass effect.
>As i said, she was just a friend and nothing more
I doubt she felt that way. Can't expect her to wait forever.
>argue about shallow romances
>uses Mass Effect as an example
>uses fucking LIARA as an example
Would be pretty bad desu
I wouldn't mind if Cantarella wasn't in B&W as long as it was a mostly all new cast of characters
Are you gonna be mad if Cantarella isn't in it at all but Fringilla is prominent?
yeah there to be entirely honest, i chose tali for ENTIRELY shallow reasons. i didn't find any of the characters in that game nearly as well written or compelling as in this one, though.
yeah, this is a completely flawed via limitation and ignorance perspective. i think there were times where in just a few short lines and one simple action here and there, like with the BB, the writers were able to really able to sell some seriously drastic character actions, motivations, relationships, etc, and I would have at the very least wanted something like this to be put in for the Triss relationship if they just HAD to put it in the game, even though I recognize in light of the massive story from the games and books, such a thing is pretty much a drop in the ocean for justifying it. would have been more gratifying in a way, though. Honestly, I think it could have been intertwined enough that nearly all her screentime COULD have simultaneously accomplished this.
>yeah there to be entirely honest, i chose tali for ENTIRELY shallow reasons. i didn't find any of the characters in that game nearly as well written or compelling as in this one, though.
All the Mass Effect characters except for maybe Mordin are shallow as fuck, so don't worry about it. Even the love interests that could have potentially been interesting are instantly sabotaged to not be for the sake of power fantasy.
Also you're a cool dude even if I don't agree with you just for admitting you have flaws on 4chan rather than just mindless sticking to your guns and calling me a faggot even if you're right and I'm wrong, you're a cool
A lot of them have a decent amount of depth in ME2 because its entirely focused on them, Garrus is actually a pretty good character in his mission but then they ruined it by dumbing them down in ME3
prove me wrong
Nah, they're all shallow archetypes there with little more going for them too. More content isn't the same as depth. Garrus is still just alien batman rogue cop doing one of the most common rogue cop stories ever portrayed with just as predictable and shallow an outcome
captcha, please fucking learn what a named street sign is, because a mailbox is not one of them, and a street address are not one of them.
i like to keep an open mind, and it will never do a person any good to be ignorantly wrong, even if it sucks to admit as much. i really appreciate the conversation you gave me, even though i don't think you got much out of it, and in the end it was probably entirely pointless!
i expect i'll read the books, but i'm not so keen on playing tw1&2, because the story interests me way more, and the gameplay is already pretty tedious in tw3 to put up with the inevitably more tedious and needlessly complex pc-rpg-style gameplay that i'll see in the first two.
no, i'm not a consolebabby. i play all games on pc. i detest when pc versions of multiplat games are simplified for controllers, but i also dislike needlessly complex or tedious game elements like the crafting systems and shit in most games.
>Tali dat accent, dem thighs
>Liara dat exotic blue, dat demure
>Miranda dat tsundere, dat ass
>Jack dat badgirl
>Garrus dat voice, dat bro
>Ashley dem lips, dat tuff girl
>Jacob dat big black cock
There, that's the only reason to get involved with any of the Mass Effect characters. No reason to be ashamed about liking shallow characters for shallow reasons.
>even though i don't think you got much out of it, and in the end it was probably entirely pointless!
It was a thorough demonstration that people that start the series with TW3 aren't drooling idiot "casual normies REEEE" as they're so often caricatured as in this thread, which is refreshing.
>i expect i'll read the books, but i'm not so keen on playing tw1&2, because the story interests me way more, and the gameplay is already pretty tedious in tw3 to put up with the inevitably more tedious and needlessly complex pc-rpg-style gameplay that i'll see in the first two.
Can always just put it on easy and blaze through for the story. TW1 is skippable, I suppose, if you absolutely have to, but TW2's plot is great.
>dammit, i did this, but i don't even like redheads or freckles. why is choosing triss inevitably also choosing tali? i'm actually stumped. pls explain.
On a shallow level their personality and demeanor is similar, the kind of first blush gut reaction that is the basis for initial attraction. They're not similar on a deeper level, but Tali is too shallow to relate to anything on a deeper level.
On a more serious note, she's been up in Novigrad successfully spying for a while, she's rumbled by an organised crime group and not Redania or the Temple Guard and from what we saw she seemed to have learned a fair bit about the important people in Novigrad which was probably her goal.
Also theres nothing wrong with spyfu being able to use her 'talents' to spy
>Jacob dat big black cock
Its alright, no one actually romanced Jacob or Kaiden by choice. But yes you're right, theres nothing wrong with romancing them for shallow reasons.
Also Tali's thighs and accents make her objectively best ME girl and Bioware made her look exactly like a human model so theres no "eww aliens" to it.
I didn't understand Spyfufag's admiration and like for a minor sidequest character until I met Eveline in Hearts of Stone
>tfw she coos like a dove then kicks the guard's ass
>Also Tali's thighs and accents make her objectively best ME girl and Bioware made her look exactly like a human model so theres no "eww aliens" to it.
That disappointed me. I wanted something a bit more...exotic, in the shallow alien waifu
>also quarians are mostly biologically akin to garrusians, so why the FUCK DO THEY LOOK LIKE APES
There's no relationship between them evolutionarily at all. Them both coincidentally using dextro amino acids says nothing about their likely morphology. I gotta wonder how Tali takes care of all that salon quality below-shoulder length hair in the helmet though.
>I'm just memeing tbqhwyf
I know, hence the serious noteShe already knew she'd been rumbled by someone, she just didn't realise it was some obscure halfling who was actually a minor crime boss. Wasn't her main reason to wanting Geralt's help because she knew he was the kind of guy to help damsels in distress and she wanted to get back to Nilfgaard as fast as possible. I've actually got the screenshot where she states Geralt never turns down a damsel in distress
>Wasn't her main reason to wanting Geralt's help because she knew he was the kind of guy to help damsels in distress and she wanted to get back to Nilfgaard as fast as possible.
That's what Fringilla told her, yeah.
They just have the same amino acid chirality so they can eat the same food. Other than that they're not similar at all.
I really wish she was more exotic as well, I just like to think that picture isn't canon and Andromeda (Mass Effect is a guilty pleasure of mine) will retcon Quarian appearance.
Goldenface please, its like you're not even trying anymore, I used to love your bait images.
>tfw you realize you've never seen Goldenface and 4k Anon at the same time
There's some kind of weird Jekyll and Hyde relationship going on there I bet.
>seriously responding to Goldenface
Withcer 3 has nothing to sustain gameplay over long periods of time, and CDPR will not be releasing real modding tools. Bethesda releases full modding tools that lets people create all new content for their games which gives those games a long life.
>I really wish she was more exotic as well, I just like to think that picture isn't canon and Andromeda (Mass Effect is a guilty pleasure of mine) will retcon Quarian appearance.

I'll do what I did for the other games and buy them in a sale or from a key reseller for next to nothing once the DLC is all out that I can
pirate, I'm not going to fork over anything above £20 for it.
sidequestfu's are best desu, theres no real romance content for them so it keeps you from devolving into proper waifufaggotry as well
I love how theres all the little hints like her slight accent twang, namedropping Fringilla and her abilities/knowledge to hint that she's a spy from Nilfgaard. She really is best girl.

I don't think I've waifued spyfu despite the name, I've never posted anything about wanting to hug/kiss/impregnate/comfort/fuck/marry/whatever her. I just think she's best girl. If you think I do something waifufaggy feel free to call me out and I'll try to nip it in the bud.
>tfw filter ruined name for yenfriends
Nothing wrong with ironically calling yourself a somethingfag/Cl_lck for your favourite character.
Pic related about the irony thing.
He's just a high effort yet obvious troll, ignore him.
Yeah, one of the main points of the DLC was to make you realise that Olgierd wasn't an evil man and didn't deserve to have his soul stolen by a satan analogue.
It seems to me that people who let Gaunter win didn't pay enough attentions or skipped the university visit.
Reminder that both Philippa and Radovid did nothing wrong despite having mutually exclusive goals.
Going just by this game it's the Bloody Baron or Olgierd, for sure.
He evoked that same weird combo of like/pity/hate in me that Philip Strenger did to the extent that I can't even really say what I felt about him.
It's easy to justify actually. It's Geralt taking a TREMENDOUS risk for a man that he knows is, while not pure evil, is not a good person by any measure and brought about a lot of this himself. Geralt has no idea that he's a videogame character and that his victory over a demi-god is inevitable, and he has other obligations that being dragged into Hell would make impossible to fulfill, like, you know, saving his daughter and the world from the Wild Hunt.
Geralt knows Gaunter can be beaten, he knows how he was beaten in the past and he was given a hint on how to defeat Gaunter by the two demons. Knowing Gaunter is a "monster" that can be defeated is enough for Geralt to justify stepping in.
also over half of witcher 3 PC audience owns it on GoG, including myself, cause it was sold for $43 to those who own witcher 1&2
and it's probably safe to say literally nobody plays skyrim on consoles anymore, while witcher sold a hefty ammount on those things cause it's only competition is bloodborne
Covered eyes + pigtails. Honestly something about her eyes made her seem a lot older in TW2.
We all got caught up talking and 4k Anon is kill.
Iorveth and Roche are both examples of underlings inspired to undying loyalty through callous manipulation as per Stennis's dialogue with Geralt.
Alternatively: Renfri is Ciri in another life.
Thats subverted, Ioverth ends up acting against Phillipa and ends up more than an underling in Vergen and Roche ends up potentially betraying Temeria to Redania and again becomes a more important player in TW3 and is key in making Temeria a Nilfgaardian vassal effectively no longer making him an underling devoted to Temeria
>Ioverth ends up acting against Phillipa
I was talking about Saskia. Iorveth is utterly devoted to her, to the point of falling in love with her. But Saskia makes her feelings clear to Geralt that she simply views him as a terrorist.
>and Roche ends up potentially betraying Temeria to Redania
This development is completely undone by TW3.
> and is key in making Temeria a Nilfgaardian vassal effectively no longer making him an underling devoted to Temeria
He does it out of blind loyalty to Temeria that derives from Foltest feeding him enough scraps to see him as his surrogate father. Stennis would approve.
well roche is a patriot and takes pride in serving his king, probably imagines foltest as his adopted father, so when his king gets murdered under his nose it's oughta make an already driven man focus on nothing but finding his killer
I'd say he isn't an underling at that point anymore, but rather temerian batman
and iorveth gets played like a fiddle in TW2, but he's his own man, especially after he realizes he's been coaxed into a snafu as it were
his character ark is really rather nice actually
>Alternatively: Renfri is Ciri in another life.
pretty much, except no actual superpowers and no plot armor
>This development is completely undone by TW3.
Nah, he sells out to Redania because he believes the continued existence of Temeria and its people is more important than complete sovereignty, while the fact he actually sells out to Redania is retconned he does the exact same thing with Nilfgaard, trading complete sovereignty for the continued existence of a national identity and limited self governance.
Although its a tough one for Ioverth, its more undying love for the ideals and literal love for Saskia than being an underling like Roche.
Roche isn't really an underling by the end of TW2 and most of TW3 either considering he's leading the Temerian resistance in TW3 and makes the decision about what happens to Temeria at the end of TW2.
>well roche is a patriot
I think we've had this discussion before but his character in TW2 is much more complex than that. I guess you didn't see my reply last thread.
>so when his king gets murdered under his nose it's oughta make an already driven man focus on nothing but finding his killer
But he does other thing during the game too, also what does that have to do with anything? I can't even tell if you're arguing with me or not.
>I'd say he isn't an underling at that point anymore, but rather temerian batman
>and iorveth gets played like a fiddle in TW2, but he's his own man, especially after he realizes he's been coaxed into a snafu as it were
He's Saskia's man.
>pretty much, except no actual superpowers and no plot armor
Renfri had super powers. Prophetic visions and some bizarre magic resistance that made Geralt's signs completely ineffective.
>Nah, he sells out to Redania because he believes the continued existence of Temeria and its people is more important than complete sovereignty, while the fact he actually sells out to Redania is retconned he does the exact same thing with Nilfgaard, trading complete sovereignty for the continued existence of a national identity and limited self governance.
He makes that decision because he learns to value Foltest's blood more than his nation, no longer being confused about the true motives for his patriotism. It's growth. This is all gone in TW3.
Roche isn't really an underling by the end of TW2 and most of TW3 either considering he's leading the Temerian resistance in TW3 and makes the decision about what happens to Temeria at the end of TW2.
I'm pretty sure the whole deal is from Dijkstra and Thaler and Roche just does what he's told in that regard after being talked into it by Thaler.
Besides, Foltest doesn't have to be alive for Roche to be devoted to him. You're taking it too literally.
Not him but Temerian batman is a decent term, he uses his father figure and goes on a rampage of revenge to find the killer and also carries out vigilante justice on Dethmold and Henselt.
You can turn almost any revenge motivated character into Batman by looking at it that broadly. And that's really the first thing your mind goest o? Read a book, Anon.
Besides, Batman does not kill
>and without being forever branded as a murderous whoreson
Exactly. Show them respect, affection, honor, and you'll buy their loyalty more surely than with any amount of gold or titles. Any good ruler knows how to manipulate the rabble in this way.
>Reminds me of ME2 threads
this is a grave insult to this general
pls go and stay go
a shitload of good that did her in the end, eh?
>But he does other thing during the game too, also what does that have to do with anything?
all to further one goal, one desire: avenge his surrogate daddy and ensure temeria survives this crisis
When was the Foltests blood thing established? It was made very clear that Anais was the only hope of Temeria not being split up into smaller states or fully annexed by Redania and Kaedwen, without Roche rescuing Anais and instead going to the Yaruga, Redania and Kaedwen attempt to annex Temeria before the Nilfgaardians push them back across the Pontar (the ending slides make little sense considering TW3 happens tbqh) so it seemed to me that it was more Roche being willing to compromise for the good of the country.
Roche isn't completely happy with the deal but he's still a key player in it, he wasn't just forced into it by Dijkstra and Thaler.
>Besides, Batman does not kill
Edgy versions of Batman have killed, theres some dobson comic thats just him ranting about how certain authors make Batman gritty and willing to kill people. Even some of the light hearted versions of batman heavily imply he just killed someone.
I'm not the one who called him Temerian Batman, I just said it was decent.
>this is a grave insult to this general
They were all about Garrus being alien Batman tho
>a shitload of good that did her in the end, eh?
>have prophetic visions
>only see your own death
>have no ability to stop it
>you are what you are
>all to further one goal, one desire: avenge his surrogate daddy and ensure temeria survives this crisis
And gets a leg up on its neighbors. Destabilizing Henselt's rule isn't about surviving th current crisis, at least, not directly.
>Destabilizing Henselt's rule isn't about surviving th current crisis, at least, not directly.
actually I've no idea why he tried to do that, do temerians just hate kaedwenis for some reason?
>When was the Foltests blood thing established?
Mostly through subtext.
> It was made very clear that Anais was the only hope of Temeria not being split up into smaller states or fully annexed by Redania and Kaedwen,
If he only cared about Temeria then he'd never do anything but bring her to Natalis. In some TW2 endings he actually has a character arc and learns to value thing besides muh Temeria. Really wish they'd gone with the "Outlaw Roche being dad to Anais" on the run ending because it's pretty much the most appropriate ending to his arc.
>(the ending slides make little sense considering TW3 happens tbqh)
They divide it up then get rapidly overwhelmed by Nilfgaard. No direct contradiction in that regard.
>Garrus sort of was alien batman in between ME1 and 2 except he shot more people.
I know. I like to pretend Roche is a much better character than Garrus though. Don't talk me out of it, please.
>actually I've no idea why he tried to do that
Standing orders and Roche being well established has stubborn and having difficulty switching gears or thinking rationally. Except in TW3 where suddenly Ves is the hothead and Roche is the calm, cool one.
>do temerians just hate kaedwenis for some reason?
Yes. The Northern Realms have fought each other more often and much longer than they ever fought Nilfgaard.
Is Gaunter O'Dimm the best RPG antagonist of the past 5 years?
also henselt's death happening anyway AFTER you've dispatched the kingslayers is just an insult to everyone who played TW2, although I guess it's in keeping with witcher theme of everything being fucked no matter what you do, and what can one mutant vagrant do anyway
stennis the menace not getting so much as a mention, too
in the end TW2 might as well be non canon spin off
Plus I guess he's really got nothing else to do because mist and Geralt's handling the whole Kingslayer investigation at that point.
>also henselt's death happening anyway AFTER you've dispatched the kingslayers is just an insult to everyone who played TW2, although I guess it's in keeping with witcher theme of everything being fucked no matter what you do, and what can one mutant vagrant do anyway
It makes perfect sense actually and I laughed when I heard it. Fuck Henselt. It's just smart on Radovid's part too. If you want to win a war with Nilfgaard, you kill Henselt first.
>in the end TW2 might as well be non canon spin off
TW3 wouldn't happen without the events of TW2. TW2 is far more important to TW3 than TW1 was to TW2.
got to keep it accessible to casuals who don't give two shits about the story to make more money.
Yes and I hope he is never reused beyond brief cameos and mentions in lorebooks.
>got to keep it accessible to casuals who don't give two shits about the story to make more money.
Gotta play TW2 to properly appreciate the Witcher's particular variant of Batman, filthy casuals won't get it
>Yes and I hope he is never reused beyond brief cameos and mentions in lorebooks.
I'd be fine with a sidequest or two but he should never be a main antagonist again though you're right
Any sidequest should be limited to "oh look how much Gaunter fucked someone over", turning him into a dalek-esque super unstoppable villain that is always defeated at the end of the quest/episode would suck.
>Loses her parents
>Goes on a rampage of revenge
If you think about it, Ciri is basically Cintran Batman
I'm not gonna disagree. Just saying him turning up and being involved but never actually overcome or the main focus could be interesting. Could even help the player out once or twice for his own ~mysterious~ purposes.
>Loses his parents
>Goes on a rampage of revenge
If you think about it, Lambert is basically Kaedweni Batman
>loses his parent's money
>goes on a rampage of revenge via intermediaries
If you think about it Olgierd is basically Capitalist Batman
>Loses his parents
>Goes on a rampage of revenge
If you think about it, Emhyr is basically Nilfgaardian Batman
>Loses her parents

for showing me this, I forgive you your horrible fashion sense.
>I thought she just starved to death and the whole heart burst from sadness was the animals waxing poetic
This. She lay in bed unmoving until death because she had no will to live. I was pretty surprised talking to her in the painted world and finding she somehow still loved Olgierd.

Would I really want to? When I came back after those two weeks it was 24/7 waifu wars, and that endured to a greater or lesser degree for 2-3 months.
Not Important started posting one day, told us everything that he thought cdpr would do, made a thread in the forums telling cdpr not to do it, we made fun of him, turned him into a meme, and then the romance changes came out... He was right
all he had to do was post unfinished build of witcher 1 360 port
Come on anon that's not proof. We all know that Marcin is 4k anon and not_important, he also might be goldenface or maybe that's Todd Howard. It could be Todd Howard slandering other games or maybe Marcin just snapped and lost his mind and hates his own company. It could be either one.
I was gonna post his face and say "look at the telltale souless eyes of a trissfag" but then I realized like 30 people named marcin worked on TW3, no seriously:
are we talking marcin the lead writer?
the job of a CEO is to give blowjobs to investors, who call all the shots, and then the CEO takes a rake and chases the project director around the studio to make him do whatever the investors want
this is how game development works
>It could be Todd Howard
If Todd visited 4chan he would have killed himself by now.
Sap has nothing to do with the games, and has said he dislikes them
When you only have 1 franchise yes that's how it works
Sap never said he didn't dislike them he just mumbled something about how a story can only be contained to a book or something like that. He also said that cdpr was doing a fantastic job on the games.
witcher 3 you mean?
yeah they improved performance somewhat, and nvidia fixed their drivers that gimped kepler GPUs
still if your graphics card is weaker than gtx 660 ti/670, you will not have a good time
even triss has the hots for yen tbĥ
>so I didn't fuck up with Yen and then Yen turned into a huge bitch
I'm guessing you ignored her quest which she mentioned several times is very important to her
only yourself to blame
Why are you still here and not at /fog/ ? The waifu faggotry continues there!
>tfw yen looks better at 100 years old than TRRIS does at 45-50 or however old she is
still no idea how this anon managed to get these graphics
what's up with Triss' in-game model being so fucking bad. like, unbelievable
Whatever, both are magicians and then have corrected their natural uglyness thanks to magic. In the books Yennefer was supposed to be a fugly hunchbacked midget or something.
sleeping, i think
I played Mass Effect and went for Tali on 2 playthroughs and Jack on 3
I've completed Witcher 3 twice now and have went with Yen both times. The first time I fucked everyone else I could though while still getting best Yending, second I was faithful.
Either I'm the exception or your theory is wrong friend
>there are people in here right now that didn't romance Miranda
>he didn't keep his love true and blue
I just finished witcher 3 after exploring everywhere and doing every single quest. What a ride! It will be a long time before another game like this comes around.
I got the best ending in my opinion, which is funny because I thought there would be repercussions for banging every single female at least once in this game.
Remember, this is the best ending in "My opinion"

That wasn't what he said. He said they'd go full waifu simulator by adding new Triss content and then cutting Yen content to make them equal. Instead they added a handful of new lines each and called it a day. It's a bit lame how they handled the Triss stuff, true, but that's always been lame. Nothing new there. It was the most needlessly and stupidly alarmist /wtc/ has ever been.
Not many uniques because there was mostly discussion going on and little waifuspamming/shitposting. It'll increase if we deliberately lower the thread quality. Lets try that
I WANT TO HUG IRIS
>Either I'm the exception or your theory is wrong friend
There's always an exception.
Miranda was almost an interesting character but she goes full waifu in the end and only exists for THE SHEPHERD to prove her wrong so she's crap like most Bioware characters.
Liara is the worst character Bioware has ever written, and I thoroughly understand the gravity of that statement.
Worst bit of writing in the series actually. Couldn't have made it more obvious that it was the writer talking to me. I say this as someone that's pretty thoroughly pro-abortion.
We have discussion when he's here. More of it, actually, with more unique posters. He also takes requests for nice 4k screenshots.

Civilization and magic that was stolen by bloede dhoine barbarians.

>We have discussion when he's here
Not as good as it was last night when he wasn't here. There was actually a decent discussion on Triss and new people to the series that didn't devolve into flaming.
>Not many uniques because there was mostly discussion going on and little waifuspamming/shitposting. It'll increase if we deliberately lower the thread quality. Lets try that
Low uniques is blamed on waifuspamming/shitposting normally. This is an interesting change of tune.
He succumbed to his veganism and died of malnutrition.
>So Fallout 3 is bad?
Yes. Bland and lazy, like Oblivion.
We have discussions like that when he's here, too. You're cherry picking hard and/or just seeing what you want to see.
Keeping Skellige "Skelligan" is a bad thing unless you're a reactionary /pol/tard.
>staying a shitty raiding culture when the continental Empires are consolidating and uniting
They're gonna get their shit pushed in as soon as Nilfgaard/Dijkstra/Radovid are no longer distracted by other conflicts. Their lifestyle is n longer practical. Cerys is the only one that gets this.
Also hereditary monarchy a shit.
Svanrige is the one consolidating and uniting, Cerys is just encouraging the clans to switch to agriculture and stuff at the cost of Skelliges martial prowess.
Hjalmar is the only one that keeps the shitty raiding culture going and unchanged.
I am always appalled that people do understand that Cerys = enlightment for Skellige
Yet at the same that majority cannot see the obvious pattern with Dijkstra and Northern Realms... wtfigo
I mean, americlaps, seriously, if someone invaded you and threw a propaganda about
>muh superior culture
You would just let that nation rule? What the eff
Duny pls go and stay go
I think Dijsktra is the best outcome for the North but at the same time can't see Geralt ever making the choice that leads him to becoming Chancellor of Mega-Redania. So muh roleplaying, basically.
Great work uniting and consolidating things. Sure that has no repercussions. Skellige stronk, it can still fight the whole world and itself at the same time ad win.
Cerys does it with diplomacy and a really short foregone conflict with a single clan. All while giving them an actual economy.
don't you have better things to do with your amazing talents of locating dead people and diving deeper than any man could realistically manage
>I am always appalled that people do understand that Cerys = enlightment for Skellige
nah, they just wanted to plough her
Now who's writing fanfic, Cerys doesn't unite and consolidate, she just encourages more progressive attitudes which is fine in itself if it wasn't for the fact that when she dies theres no guarantee the successor will be as open-minded as her. Svanrige doesn't launch massive raids either and take on the entire world either.
Dijkstra=better for Redania and Kaedwen
Nilfgaard=better for Temeria and Nilfgaard
>Nilfgaard is better for Nilfgaard
Damn I never thought of it that way before.
Holy shit, where the fuck am I making shit up? Actually play the game and pay attentions to the politics and endings. Svanrige ends up launching a civil war and uniting Skellige under one banner (as per the ending slides) while Cerys acts as a more diplomatic and progressive queen but doesn't fully unite Skellige. Where am I wrong? Cerys and Svanrige are about equal with different people preferring one or the other.
I was pretty shocked at it too but upon further examination I discovered it was true.
Under her clothes.
>loses his father
>goes on a rampage of viking
If you think about it, Svanrige is basically the Skelliger Batman
Im pretty late to this discussion, but what does /krw/ think the morally right decision to make in the bloody baron quest?
From what i can see, its orphans vs baron and crone worshipper villagers (although a few also get killed by witch hunters iirc), but i also think that Geralt would generally choose to free the spirit, given his lack of knowledge, and the fact that the game gave him time to bond a little bit with the orphans.
I told you, under her clothes, where they've always been. What's wrong with you, Anon?
Given what Geralt knows at the time, there's a very strong argument to be made for freeing She-Who-Knows, and I favor that, but it's a believable choice either way.
That's quite the nonsequitor. What brought this on?
Damn it Anon, look what you did! The cure was working ;_;
