Never heard of the book. Trailer looks good.

New GoT?

Its a series of novels that gained popularity from the video game adaptations. Trailer seems fine. I will watch out of curio as I love the world in the games.

hmmm cautiously optimistic. the white hair and accent helps me forget that’s superman. but where’s geralt’s wisecracks? where’s the weird humour? will give it a go though…

edit: β€œchaos is the most dangerous thing” line was a bit ropey. explicit GoT audience fishing imo.

Unfortunately going to have to hear loads about this from a co-worker who hasnt clocked how little I care about video games. May as well watch it

They made a book out of that?

It’ll be terrible but I’ll still watch all nine seasons and the eventual Netflix-only film.

Yeah it’s such an amazing concept and a lot of the lore is built on Slavic mythology which is really cool (and I absolutely need to read more about)

The trailer is definitely gunning for the GoT audience, but I really hope they’ve kept in a few Geralt wisecracks. I forget that this is him almost at the beginning, so he’s not 1000% done with everything the way the Geralt of W3 is.

Game of thrones crossed with Star Wars, yeah I’ll watch every minute of it and complain throughout, thanks!

Somebody said in one of the Gaming threads that the Polish president (?) gave Obama a set of the books as a state gift.

I’ll watch this. Witcher 3 is one of the best games I’ve ever played, but I’ve got to say I didn’t really get on with the book I read off the back of it. Can’t remember what one it was, but it was a fix up of a few novellas / short stories rather than a pure novel. Should I have started somewhere else, or are the books just not that great?

What do you think I’ve made this thread for

The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny are short story collections (which are before the novels chronologically), the others in the series are novels - maybe give Blood of Elves a try and see how that is

I think he got a copy of the witcher 2 as well?

Think it was Last Wish I tried. I’ll give Blood Of Elves a whirl, thanks.

I hope all the extras say β€œello marster witcher” and quote Madonna lyrics
