Publisher: CD Red Project
Format: Steam/Physical/GOG/PS4/XBox
Genre: Action, Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Medieval

Synopsis:

The Witcher: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game set in a visually stunning fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher you play as the professional monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia, tasked with finding a child of prophecy in a vast open world rich with merchant cities, viking pirate islands, dangerous mountain passes, and forgotten caverns to explore.

PLAY AS A HIGHLY TRAINED MONSTER SLAYER FOR HIRE
Trained from early childhood and mutated to gain superhuman skills, strength and reflexes, witchers are a distrusted counterbalance to the monster-infested world in which they live.

  • Gruesomely destroy foes as a professional monster hunter armed with a range of upgradeable weapons, mutating potions and combat magic.
  • Hunt down a wide range of exotic monsters from savage beasts prowling the mountain passes to cunning supernatural predators lurking in the shadows of densely populated towns.
  • Invest your rewards to upgrade your weaponry and buy custom armour, or spend them away in horse races, card games, fist fighting, and other pleasures the night brings.

EXPLORE A MORALLY INDIFFERENT FANTASY OPEN WORLD
Built for endless adventure, the massive open world of The  Witcher sets new standards in terms of size, depth and complexity.

  • Traverse a fantastical open world: explore forgotten ruins, caves and shipwrecks, trade with merchants and dwarven smiths in cities, and hunt across the open plains, mountains and seas.
  • Deal with treasonous generals, devious witches and corrupt royalty to provide dark and dangerous services.
  • Make choices that go beyond good & evil, and face their far-reaching consequences.

CHASE DOWN THE CHILD OF PROPHECY
Take on the most important contract to track down the child of prophecy, a key to save or destroy this world.

  • In times of war, chase down the child of prophecy, a living weapon of power, foretold by ancient elven legends.
  • Struggle against ferocious rulers, spirits of the wilds and even a threat from beyond the veil – all hell-bent on controlling this world.
  • Define your destiny in a world that may not be worth saving.

So what’s in the box! Not everything sadly, there was a few volumes missing that should be arriving in the next day or so. Though Yen Press have broken my heart, the Log Horizon and No Game No Life novels won’t be coming as they’re out of stock. So now i’ve got to try and recover the funds from america, so i can buy them here in the UK. Need to sit down with the missus and explain she should only buy from america under certain circumstances, and never for new releases.

The Phoenix Rises!

Posted on April 21st, 2015 by Ryu Sheng | No Comments

Like a phoenix rising from its ashes to fly again, this site is reviving and being renewed!

Over a year ago I moved away from this site to focus on my gaming site (davesgamingblog.com) and the Button Smashers site (thebuttonsmashers.com). However as time went by I focused more and more on the BSP site. That was until I had to take a leave of absence from all of my sites due to work and life pressures.

Now I’m coming back into things again I find I no longer want to spend my time splitting between 3 sites, and honestly can’t see a reason why I should. So I’ve decided to merge my gaming site into Ryu’s Dreams, and just do the occasional post over on BSP as a ‘guest editor’. As for what that will entail, honestly I’m not sure right now.

As for this site, we’ll you’ll be seeing some major changes in both site layout and content. I’m hoping to hire Lissa, who created this sites theme, to create a new theme for the site. Content wise there’s going to be some new added to the old:

          Ryu’s Musing’s

This is still going to be the same as always, my general thoughts and musings on what ever the post is about. However it will be expanded to include all games, not just JRPG’s, as well as pc and console technology.

          Ryu’s Bites

As before this will be a short post, usually containing 2 or 3 items. Generally speaking this will be where I post about stuff I just can’t finish because it was so bad and I don’t feel it warrants a full post.

          Ryu’s Views

A new section where I’ll be posting my general thoughts and opinions on random topics, ranging from games, technology, controversies, pretty much anything that takes me fancy. These will all be opinion pieces, with all the caveats that apply to them.

          Ryu’s Dreams

This is where I’ll talk about unlicensed manga and anime that I feel should be licensed.

          One Sucky Gamer!

This is the new Twitch and YouTube channel. Where I, as some one who sucks at games, will embarrass myself inform of the masses by showing off just how much I suck! Always keep that title in mind, I picked it for a reason! I am not a competent gamer, I honestly don’t care if I ever become one! I play games simply because I like them and that’s all. If you want to laugh along with me, be welcome. If you want to rage at how bad I am, don’t bother.

          The RyuCast

This is something I’m still considering at the moment, a fortnightly podcast where I talk about random news from all areas I post about. As well as some recommendations and general banter. Not 100% sure if I’m going to do this yet though.

So that’s where things are at the moment. Hopefully I’ll get to see you all back here in the future!
