Just picked up the witcher 3 thanks to a ps4 sale, this does help out.
IGN forgot the most important part: Witchers are immune to STDs and so Geralt bangs every maid, witch, lady, and female magical creature during his quest and collects nude selfies.
everyone who met Geralt knows:1. He is a witcher.2. Has horse named Roach.3. Hates portals.4. Want to play Gwent.
They really should remaster Witcher 1 and 2.
Watched the whole video, still confused.
who else is playing witcher 3 but did not play the first 2?
I watched a 30 minute video explaining witcher, but somehow this 5 minute videos explained it better
Thumbs up if you watched the video first, then started Witcher 3, then came back again cuz you still had no idea wtf's going on.
I haven't played any Witcher game but the 3rd one got my attention and would definitely give it a try. Thanks for the 5 minutes story-line! May 19 it is. :)
Actually, it was Emperor Emhyr who hired Letho to kill the Kings, not Sheala de Tancarville.
The Wild Hunt: Every decision you make will bring devastation!
this video REALLY needs captions, because of all those crazy names
That confused me more. What's Milfgard? I love milfs.
Witcher knowledge upgraded by 2
The witcher 3 and batman arkham night and metal gear Solid 5 the phamton pain are MASTERPICES already in my list:) 10/10....
I spent damn near 45 minutes watching unnecessarily long videos to try and understand the story up until Witcher 3 and was just getting confused until I watched this one. Clear and to the point, no wasting time explaining things I don't need to know. Thank you.
Anyone else want a witcher 2 remaster
THANK YOU I FINALLY KNOW WTF IS HAPPENING
finally a usefull IGN video
The scoia'tael don't want equal rights with humans, they want their own empire separate from humans like it was before the humans arrived on the continent, following the conjunction of the spheres. In fact, most scoia'tael would see every human killed if they had the chance and the power.
I genuenly thank you for this IGN.. THis is a helpfull video,that will improve the witcher 3 experience for players like me who are new to the series..Hope you do more videos like this for games like Metal Gear Solid ,Splinter Cell,Hitman..While i do love these games i haven't played the really old ones extensively and get into their story and i don't think i am able to pick them up and play them(talkin about games like Spliter cell:Pandora tommorow or Hitman:Silent Assasin)Please make more videos like these that tell the story of their predecsesors!
Before i finish, does this video spoil Witcher 3?
video should has name TW1 and TW2 game in 5 minutes :D this is only top of iceberg of witcher stories :D
OMG ty ty ty so much! i was so confused after i started the witcher 3, and had no idea what the references to these past characters were.
I'm Mr. Meeseeks look at me
5 mins isn't enough to recap the story
Random stranger: hey witcher, why do you carry 2 swords. Geralt: one's steel, other is silver, both are for monsters.
So is this video spoiling The Witcher 3? Or is it saying what happened in the last 2 games so I know what's going on in the 3rd one?
see this is why skyrim is better. it's story is so much simpler.
This is good for the ploughing console whoresons who haven't played the first game and PotatoStation fanfairies who haven't played the second.
People should still at least play Witcher 2, it's an incredible RPG that still stands today in terms of gameplay, graphics and story. You make a lot of important decisions in it and a few will impact the story of Witcher 3, such as the choice of sparing or killing Letho the Kingslayer Witcher. I know this for a fact because you can also slightly see him from behind in one of the trailers. And of course if you do play the 1 or 2 you will actually care for the characters that Geralt encounters such as Triss, Yennefer, Dandelion, Zoltan and many more.
It was really difficult to follow since the voice speaks too fast. Eng is my second lang and I had a lot of trouble following the story. other than that, Great work and thanks
Spoole from FunHaus approves of this video.
Jesus...0.o that story is like if game of thrones had a baby with Metal gear solid! I love it, but OMG that's dense! ^u^
really well made, good video
You talk too fast!!...
Sigh, another Resogun clone.
Just to make one thing clear, the scoia’tael do not want “equal rights,” they want the death of all humans. Their queen tells them to kill humans on sight and their battle cry is “humans to the sea!” Which means “get humans off the continent.”
Yep, still have no idea what's going on
Why they have a scar under the eye?? I’m sorry if he mentioned that already I’m actually not so good in your language 😅
ign also forgot that all witchers and sorceresses are impotent
I'm on my 3rd playthrough of witcher 3.
This video should be called, "The Witcher GAMES In Five Minutes". I only wanted to know about The Witcher, part one, which is what the title of this video implies. The description under the video is very small and easy to overlook. So yeah, thanks for spoiling part 2 for me.
What the hell Letho is the bad guy? I just helped this motherf#cker in The witcher 3 and sent him to Kaer Moren
I'm going after Triss play through one. Yennifer is great too now and she seems like the more powerful of the two. I just love me some redheads I guess lol At the end of the day you really can't go wrong with ether, just don't think you gone be able to keep them both!
Wow. A real master class in conciseness, great job!
Is there any chance of a Witcher one and two remake?
THANK YOU! This is like the 4th video I've watched trying to catch up. Definitely the best explanation yet.
please add the subtitle
This series is the one of the few videos i actually like from ign
Since Game of Thrones is ending(the show is catching up with the end of the books) it would be genius for someone to make a similar styled show using the Witcher lore on HBO....just an idea.
Amazing storyline, just bought the Witcher 3 and I needed this.
That's how you do a recap
This was really helpful for noobs of the witcher world! Thank you!
Theres only one thing I still dont get. When and how did Geralt recover his memories???
Can somebody explain the war(s) going on in the Witcher 3? I still don’t get it.
Ok....now i just have to read 7 novels (Wish i will with pleasure)
Now I'm caught up to speed on what's going on. This game is downloading now. Can't wait to get started.
Games like W3 are a good example of fanboy ears suddenly pricking up when it's no longer a PC-only title. After it was announced for consoles too, it was suddenly a good looking game to the nay-sayers.
Thanks for the catch up, PS4 copy should be here either tomorrow or Monday :)
That ... was actually a very good summary :D Props, IGNi.
