Just picked up the witcher 3 thanks to a ps4 sale, this does help out.
They really should remaster Witcher 1 and 2.
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.
Watched the whole video, still confused.
I watched a 30 minute video explaining witcher, but somehow this 5 minute videos explained it better
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. :)
The witcher 3 and batman arkham night and metal gear Solid 5 the phamton pain are MASTERPICES already in my list:) 10/10....
The Wild Hunt: Every decision you make will bring devastation!
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.
THANK YOU I FINALLY KNOW WTF IS HAPPENING
Sigh, another Resogun clone.
Actually, it was Emperor Emhyr who hired Letho to kill the Kings, not Sheala de Tancarville.
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?
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.
this video REALLY needs captions, because of all those crazy names
1:50 those boob physics..
I'm Mr. Meeseeks look at me
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.
Before i finish, does this video spoil Witcher 3?
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!
finally a usefull IGN video
really well made, good video
Wow. A real master class in conciseness, great job!
video should has name TW1 and TW2 game in 5 minutes :D this is only top of iceberg of witcher stories :D
You talk too fast!!...
This is good for the ploughing console whoresons who haven't played the first game and PotatoStation fanfairies who haven't played the second.
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.
Spoole from FunHaus approves of this video.
Yep, still have no idea what's going on
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.
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.
who else is playing witcher 3 but did not play the first 2?
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^
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.
It's crap those were the only two words needed In 2 words
Now I'm caught up to speed on what's going on. This game is downloading now. Can't wait to get started.
Ok....now i just have to read 7 novels (Wish i will with pleasure)
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 😅
In what game is the part that ciri revived geralt and yeneffer? and how she did that
The best IGN videos by far
when does the witcher 1 end and 2 begin?
THANK YOU! This is like the 4th video I've watched trying to catch up. Definitely the best explanation yet.
Thanks for the catch up, PS4 copy should be here either tomorrow or Monday :)
I thank you immensely.
That ... was actually a very good summary :D Props, IGNi.
please add the subtitle
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.
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.
Is there any chance of a Witcher one and two remake?
This was really helpful for noobs of the witcher world! Thank you!
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!
Looks awesome but also seems like its alot of "following someone's trail"
I'm on my 3rd playthrough of witcher 3.
ign also forgot that all witchers and sorceresses are impotent
Witcher knowledge upgraded by 2
This series is the one of the few videos i actually like from ign
Still waiting for that berserk game by CDProjektRED.
