If you’ve been pining away since the first episode of this new series, waiting for me to jump right into chapter 1, your wait is over! Be warned though: this is a long video, clocking in at nearly three-and-a-half hours!
At the end of the Prologue, Geralt, Triss, and Roche boarded a ship and headed away from La Valette Castle, finding themselves in the thick woods around the literal backwater town of Flotsam. Here, we come to learn that the Scoia’tael is harboring the kingslayer, there are a lot of internal politics in this backwards village, a huge creature called the Kayran is terrorizing the people of Flotsam and the nearby hamlet, and meet two of our old friends and save them from a terrible fate. Also, we’ll meet a sorceress who Triss warns us about, but whose true motives yet remain to be seen.
There are a lot of side quests we work on here, but the main storyline remains the focus. As you can tell, even with that, this will be a rather long game. Also, I finally figure out how you meditate in this one. Rather than being forced to go to a campfire to do so here, you can actually do it anywhere, so long as you’re out of combat! So, we finally spend our trait points! Yay!
This video was encoded into an MKV file, but apparently YouTube doesn’t like MKVs and is forced to re-encode it back into an MP4. The video quality is still good for 1080p; however, it’s quite a bit inferior to what the original file looks like on my computer. But, lesson learned! I’ll use MP4 or AVI for future episodes so that doesn’t happen again. It’s a shame, because MKV is a superior video container format!
