News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Expansion Pricing Backlash

I think ArenaNet could calm people down by throwing in a character slot at the $50 level, or dropping the expansion price to $40. They'll need to do something, this is really bad press for them.

I think people are missing the point a bit. No one's saying Eidos can't use themes of bigotry and segregation etc. The problem is the specific use of the term "apartheid" which was a specific set of policies resulting in the oppression of the black population and curtailment their rights. Many people died in the struggle against those policies.

It's an easy term to throw around, but much harder to handle with sensitivity and respect for the people who suffered under it. Using it to market your videogame story could seem pretty insensitive since they're not addressing the actual policy of apartheid as it existed in the real world; they're just leveraging an emotional term as shorthand. It's a bit gross that Eidos literally trademarked the term apartheid.

Looks like still has the same problems as HR, like giving XP for every little thing you do. You get 10-20xp for each enemy you KO/kill, but if you ghost past them presumably you get nothing. Not surprising, since their definition of ghosting is KOing every enemy.

And the hacking minigame is back, so I guess half of all the augs will be devoted to that again.

Just hope that "color correction" doesn't make things the same piss yellow color of HR.

Unless the game is actually a movie, this is not a "gameplay" trailer.

GW2 was a letdown for me bigtime and feels like cashgrab especially with this expansion...
Yeah that no-subscription model and all those free updates they released over the past 3 years was definitely a cash grab...

Ubisoft's "open worlds" are always very shallow. If it's a good shooter like the Far Crys it might be worth playing, but I'm not expecting much more.

It's not gameplay, but it's a mockup of gameplay. They did the same with the first game's trailer. That's representative of how it will play, but technically not gameplay.

What the FUCK is The Witcher 3 doing BEHIND utter shite like ARK, GTA V and CSGO???

This supports the turd pic of that indie dude where he said the gaming industry is going to shit. He's right. It is going down the shitter real fast when quality games like TW3 rank lower than complete garbage like ARK, GTA V and the rehash of a two decades old MP shooter.
Remember most Witcher 3 purchases are on GOG. Add these platforms together and it might well be on top.

Heard the audio as well, nowhere do they leak about Dishonered or any other project, unless I missed something.
It's obviously Arkane's next project anyway, otherwise there's no reason for Smith and Colantonio to be there. Whether it's Dishonored 2 or something else, we'll find out soon.

It's been a long time since Dishonored, so it's about time they announced something.

Youtube is actually functional most of the time, more than I can say for Twitch.

My Witcher 3 key (GoG only) came with my Nvidia 970 vid card which was offered by Nvidia to all purchasers of the latest video cards.

I'm sure lots bought it on GoG but quite a few got it free with their vid card purchases...
Same, but the news post (i.e. marketing) is about the Galaxy client, which is still optional.

OK, so on the one hand people say: "GO AND MAKE YOUR OWN GAME, STOP RUINING MY VIDEOGAMES"

Then when someone goes and makes a game: "THIS IS NOT A GAME IT'S SOME SJW BULLSHIT, STOP RUINING MY VIDEOGAMES"

(Also, one of the Offworld articles linked in that interview is one in which Hudson writes about how she loves Bloodborne. Contrary to the hysteria coming from gamers, they are not opposed to traditional "hardcore" games, they just want more diversity.)

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.
