The Witcher TV series coming from Netflix this year!
« on: February 05, 2018, 12:39:37 pm »
I LOVE The Witcher 3. It's hands-down my favorite game on the PS4. It was a huge inspiration for a lot of the details of Primordia, especially the Adventurers' Guild.

I was excited when I heard about this show, but I'm super-stoked now that I've seen the casting. Also, the author of the books is involved, and it sounds like the show will be based more on the books than the games, which I think is awesome. I'm hoping to read the books soon. I've heard they're really good.

Some highlights from the casting:

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (from Game of Thrones) as Geralt
Katheryn Winnick (from Vikings) as Keira
Gemma Arterton as Triss
Eva Green as Yennefer

Unfortunately I haven't played witcher 3 yet. I finished the first one, have the second but havent tried it yet. Mind you they are both PC versions.

I will definitely keep an eye on this, really like the lore of this series, so it could be an interesting show.

I love Katheryn Winnick!! 

Yeah, I haven't read the books either but they're on my list.  Should be fun to watch on Netflix.   
Gah!  Watching so many series right now!!

The fact that it's on Netflix really excites me; all that extended story potential instead of cramming a large plot into a 2-hour movie (Assassin's Creed, anyone?).

Yeah, I totally agree. I'd much prefer a TV series from someone like Netflix or HBO than a movie (or movies) when it comes to IPs I love these days.

The games are set after the books.  I highly recommend the books and all 3 games.  I am also looking forward to the show because i think its based on the books.

CD Projeck REDs next game, CyberPunk 2077, looks promising too and is based on the RPG CyberPunk 2020!
