At the time of writing this the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be out in four days. I most likely won’t be buying it. Not because I don’t want to but because I do things like write blogs that no one reads instead of actually working, so I don’t have the money to keep buying games. That’s okay though because if I want to get really pissed off about dying every few minutes I’ll just go back to playing Bloodborne. I have seen a decent amount of the game already though, thanks to IGN and various other game news companies. As impressive as the game is the one thing that I can’t wait for is Geralt’s beard and if that sounds weird just hear me out on this. His beard actively grows as the game progresses. Now I’m no Game Designer but I have to say, a lot of people must be kicking themselves in the ass for not having thought of something like that first.
The Witcher was also the first game I had ever seen a boob in. Not to say that it was never shown in a game before, because I’m sure we all remember Dave Mirras BMX: XXX. But this was a first for me and after I got over the initial shock I began to realize that this wasn’t going to be a normal game not because they showed full nudity, but because they did it in a way that wasn’t obscene. Rather it was setup in a way that seemed natural, just two people waking up in the morning after spending the night together before the start of a very long war. If it had just been two people Bangulating for the hell of it I don’t think the series would have had such a profound impact on the industry as well as how Game stories are told.
