I planned on watching the whole series in its entirety once it's done, but I watched this episode right away. Say what you will about any other aspect of The Witcher 3, but its world is among the best ever made.

On an unrelated note, Miles Tost looks almost exactly like an acquaintance of mine. It's uncanny, really.

The Zero-Zero bug was a funny story. I wish I could see it. Reminds me of people duplicating a bunch of cheese in Skyrim.

I need to get to that reference tree.

I love NoClip but I'm hesitant to watch any of these as I haven't played any of the Witcher 3 DLC yet. Actually going to start back up this weekend.

Is this safe to watch for players like me who want to avoid spoilers?

No big deal if so, I can always come back to these episodes later.

This episode doesn't talk about DLC's at all. They go into their process of designing world of original TW3 (Skellige, Velen and Novigrad). How they mapped it out, how they thought out design of villages and that kinda stuff.

All those smuggler's caches, heh. Hope there's an episode that goes into depth on the music creation side of things. Edit: skimmed over the OP and appears to be within the last episode. Really deserves some focus imo.

This series has been incredible so far. The production values are incredibly high - it's impressive. It makes Easy Allies's Dark Souls retrospective look so amateurish. Great work Danny and team.

First 3 episodes don't go into DLC at all.

Episode 1 talks about how the company started out, and what gaming was like in Poland back before CD-Roms were even a thing.

Episode 2 goes into how The Witcher 1 came about and briefly talks about The Witcher 2 (I really wanted more Witcher 2 talk).

Episode 3 talks about how they designed the world and quests in The Witcher 3 (but no DLC).
