Ah, so it turns out Twitter essentially supports mass blocklists. Hope all the crybabies will shut up about their free speech right to abuse people now.

He did mention that he didnít really care about gaming from the start and he was just a businessman.

Considering how gamers reacted to Polygon's Rockband 4 preview, they should be happy about this guy leaving, right?

Judging by the development timeline, it would have been released around the same time as L4D too. Would have been interesting.

I doubt anyone's buying this based on whether it's actually a good game or not. Either you buy this because it's an anti-PC adolescent hate-the-world fantasy, or you don't buy it for the same reason.

Witcher, game still crashes after 15 minutes of play? It minimizes to the desktop, I can still get sound, etc. but can't bring the game back up....:(
I suspect it might have something to do with the Microsoft C++ Redistributable x64 that I've had to re-install 3 times just to get the game to actually launch for me?

Win 7 x64
970 4GB
12GB RAM
blah, blah ,blah.
This was happening to me (much the same system), and running the game in fullscreen rather than borderless window seems to have fixed it. CDPR says borderless is more stable, but it's been the opposite for me. Haven't had a single minimize-to-desktop since I changed to fullscreen.

Those bandits are basically trash mobs. You can't really do that against other kinds of enemies, especially not the boss-types. Also, usually bandits appear in groups of 5 or so, with a mix of melee and archers, so you'll get killed pretty quickly if you just button mash. Note how he has to parry carefully against the shield-bearing leader, and almost dies at the start of the video when he's fighting 3 of them... If he actually went into the bandit camp instead of carefully drawing out 3 of them and splitting them up he would have been destroyed.

I agree the combat has problems (would love some more Dark Souls inspiration), but that video just shows the easiest fights in the game and pretends it represents the whole thing.

The developer himself said it was a ripoff of Gunpoint. (Then the Gunpoint dev said it wasn't and recorded a let's play of it.) No controversy here, grow up, etc.

I can't wait to see reviews for this game.
Will be interesting to see how many sites actually review it. I'm guessing many of them won't.

Not gonna listen to that voice for 16 minutes, but I'm surprised there haven't been more criticisms (in reviews) of the movement. It's awful. Geralt and especially his horse are constantly moving in weird ways, or they don't stop moving when you want them to, or they don't run when you want to, etc. Mounted combat is next to impossible because whenever you aim your blow at a creature Geralt inexplicably decides to swing his sword on the opposite side of his horse. Basic control is just terrible.

The Witcher3 looks and runs GREAT. Even on older hardware.
Only thing that matters, time to move on.

GOG can bite me. Their anti DRM stance is bullshit. DRM is great as it keeps cheaters from stealing games that publishers work hard to make. I have 100 games on steam and NONE of them have DRM problems. So there is no real DRM issue just alot of people that way to steal things.....

So basically GOG is selling that they offer stolen games easier then steam. No wonder you all like it....
What the hell is this comment.

So in other words this report is completely useless for any purpose whatsoever.

Which interestingly enough was *not* your initial point.

Edit: Because I know that you'll move the goalposts, this is the original point I'm referencing:

BicycleRepairMan is right, it means 12% of all reports received by WAM were related to GamerGate, which is actually really huge and this GamerGate blogger is trying to spin the numbers some other way.

Then when your point gets dismantled all of a sudden this report isn't good for very much.
What are you on about? The report is fine for its actual purpose which is to examine the kind of abuse people receive and how it should be handled. I don't think it's useful for proving that GamerGate is one thing or another. By the "wider context of GG", I mean all reasonable people already know GG is a harassment campaign perpetrated by manchildren who feel threatened by things they don't like or don't understand. After all, that's why GG was even mentioned in the report to begin with, because it was such a prominent source of abuse.

Again, my original point is that the One Angry Gamer headline is absurd and I was pointing out that his claim was bullshit. The report can't be used to claim what he tried to claim.

I've been here 13 years and I can comment, or not comment, on whatever I want. I post about things that interest me, that's the beginning and the end of my motivation.

You accuse the "SJWs" of ignoring opinions counter to their own, but you're the one who can't seem to handle other people's opinions. You're a childish hypocrite.

For the record, even looking at the first page of my most recent posts, I've also commented on The Witcher 3, GOG Galaxy, gendered toys (and no, that's not a GG issue), the price of games, The Witcher 3 GMG keys, the Starfighter Inc kickstarter, paid mods, Hatred, and the release of old Star Wars games.

So stop whining.

It still is actually relevant. It suggests that less than 1% of the people "associated" with GG by anti-GGers is responsible for pretty much all the GG harassment during that 20 day period.
Yeah if you assume that everyone contributing to the harassment is actually reported to Twitter in that 20 day period. Which is clearly a silly assumption to make.

Again, this WAM report is based on the reports received by victims or "bystanders". They did not specifically investigate those accounts. You can't use these figures to prove how many GGers engaged in harassment.

(I don't even think this is an important point in the wider context of GG, by the way, I'm just countering the blog's attempt to spin these figures to fit their ludicrous headline.)

I don't think you read through it correctly. Refer to this image.

Only 65 of the 9844 accounts on the blocklist were reported for harassment. Thats less than 1%.
Irrelevant. WAM collected reports of harassment over a 20-day period, it didn't specifically investigate all of those accounts. You can't make a claim that less than 1% of accounts engaged in harassment, because that's not what this WAM report looked at.

Would be nice if Blue linked to the actual report instead of a biased interpretation of it.

At least with CDPR the 'enchanced edition' should be a free update, not a 'game of the year' edition that costs as much as the first version did. No reason not to get it now imo (unless you don't have 200 hours spare...)
