"Somne is a simple magical sign used by witchers. It was shown in the book Season of Storms. It can put targets to sleep by drawing a sign in the air and possibly erase memories of that."
"In the books, Regis was able to pick up a hot horseshoe with his bare hands without showing any signs of pain."
I mean. You literally have it written right there. Geralt in Season of Storms almost put Degerlund to sleep with the Somne sign (it barely worked because Geralt was fatally poisoned) and it was mentioned few times in the book. After Geralt most likely used it on Nimue she has fallen unconscious and didn't remember meeting him earlier.
The horseshoe feat from what I remember is from Baptism of Fire book and it happened when a priest requested Geralt and his comrades to bring a horseshoe out of fire for him without receiving burn marks, Regis did it and absolutely nothing happened to him, because he's a higher vampire. That doesn't apply to magical fire because Regis was "killed" by it.
No clue. I have never followed the series but I've definitely once seen it in some market or bazaar back in the day. When you have mentioned it I remembered it. I probably won't play it but maybe it's as good as you claim it to be
Not really. The mecha-mechanics in, for example, NieR kinda annoyed me. I'm not a big sci-fi or mecha fan, I prefer when action takes place in our world, fantasy setting or medieval/reneissance/antiquity and mostly uses firearms/cold weapons/some creative stuff.
>alongside some really Grimm dark story telling
Don't forget what my favorite series are, I'm very used to it
I still respect Valve because they have made some of the most memorable games of all time, but yeah abandoning series is bad, even worse than making rushed sequel. Like wtf, they have abandoned so many games
