Disney+ came out swinging with a Baby Yoda in the Mandalorian but Netflix countered with The Witcher. I must admit that I was a little sceptical about the Witcher series when it was announced and as it neared release. However, after consuming it all in a couple of sittings during the recent holidays I am now on a Witcher high and I have literally followed the song – Toss a coin to your Witcher.
My History with the Witcher Series
I was aware of The Witcher as a gaming and book series but I never played any of the mainline games – I wanted so bad to buy and play The Witcher 3 but it dropped during the crunch years at university and I had just not been able to pick it up since as I slowly catch up with old and news games while taking instruction from my wallet. I did spend a lot of time playing Gwent though. The card game was a better fit for me and took over from Heartstone as my favoured card game. I moved my account from PS4 over to PC recently as unfortunately the game will be discontinued on consoles. I await eagerly await its Android release.
Toss a coin to your Witcher
Fast forward to recently and I enjoyed the Witcher series so much I immediately bought the Witcher 3 for PS4 (on sale) after the final episode rolled. It seems I was not the only one as the game has seen an upsurge in players on all platforms with tracking data on PC via steam showing more people are playing it now than at launch. I recently dinged level 22 in The Witcher 3 and I can’t believe I didn’t dive into this game earlier. I don’t even think I am halfway through the game and its been so much fun. I am looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077 later this year which is made by the same game developers CD Project Red.
