December has been a pretty amazing month for television. New seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Expanse have already arrived, and later this month we’ll get a new season of Lost in Space. I’m in TV heaven! But most excitedly, The Witcher TV show arrives on Friday on Netflix!
I’m a huge fan of The Witcher video games, even though the show won’t have anything to do with the games. Chronologically, the show is set years, if not decades, before the games. And I haven’t read the books.
But The Witcher is an exciting world full of exciting characters, and the show looks to be truly high grade. I have my hopes high! The Witcher comes out on Dec. 20.
I’m a huge fan of The Witcher video games. But the new Witcher Netflix show is going to be based on the books. So who knows exactly what we’re going to get. And I’m not sure this trailer provides that good of a look.
I honestly don’t know what to make of what we’re seeing here. It looks well made, but I also don’t know if Henry Cavill can pull this off. They should have given him the beard from Witcher 3, even though it’s not canonically accurate at all. Geralt of Rivia just looks better with a beard.
We’ll see! The Witcher TV show comes out on Dec. 20!
Finally we arrive at some Comic-Con trailers I actually care about! First up is The Witcher TV show coming to Netflix. Like most people, I am a huge fan of The Witcher video games, with The Witcher 3 being one of the greatest, most in-depth I have ever played. But the show is going to be based on the books, which I have no tread.
At least Henry Cavill looks better in motion than he did in the early photographs. This show could have all the goodness!
Next up is a Steven Universe made-for-TV movie, which looks awesome! And it delivers the one thing I want most from Steven Universe: letting him grow up. Steven is a such a great character that it annoys me that he was forced to stay kid-like. They had an episode explaining that his body just didn’t age like a normal person. That is so weird and lame.
Steven is a character that I want to see grow up. Steven’s growing maturity was the best part of the show, and I want that taken to normal, natural levels. But if you go much further, he’ll be an adult in a weird kid body, and that’s just weird. Movie trailer looks good, though.
So for a few weeks now, I’ve been crowing about the joy of playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It’s a fun, deeply immersive game with great graphics and stellar gameplay. It’s good times all around right here. Well with this being another quiet, dreary Monday, I decided to share the one video on the Internet that shows off the coolness of Witcher 3: Conan O’Brien using it to search for sex!
Anybody else watch Clueless Gamer? They’re pretty darned funny! And they make a good way to start a Monday morning.
Last year, a friend of mine convinced me to try The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, an RPG on the PC that was getting good word-of-mouth. I took a chance and absolutely loved the game! It’s got gorgeous graphics, a cool, mature storyline, and great real-time combat for an RPG. I was not disappointed.
So hooray! The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming!
I put the full weight of my hopefully sterling reputation behind The Witcher games. I never played the first one, but the sequel was a fantastic single-player RPG. Plus I didn’t really need to know the first game’s story to catch up. I can only hope the threequel will be even better, with improved graphics, an open world and no doubt other forms of awesomeness. If you’re looking for a good, solid RPG with character choices, fun magic, great combat and some mature storytelling, I highly recommend The Witcher 2.
Plus it’s been out for awhile, so I bet it’s cheap these days.
