How can a corporation be so F'ing stupid.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Iirc, console hackers have been playing the game for at least a week, so I'm guessing User Reviews won't be empty for long.

Think the big announcement is, their scheme to jack-wank the level capped original players, by taking powers and gold away is working and a HUGE success!

There are tons of testimonials in the announcement too, so you know it's for real and not some phoney baloney marketing pluy... plo... thing. Let's ask Billy Bob, what he thinks. What's it like Billy Bob?
Squeeee! Squeeee!

First I've heard of it, so on the fence, atm. I'll at least vote for it. Reminds me of the late 1990s, and I sure would have played it back then.

BioShock Bonanza can this be correct?
14$ cash, $15 credit, Bioshock, X-Com, *choice game* and there seems to be a %20 off Digital Games as well. So is this technically about $35 US for all this or does my math just suck?

I'm just looking for an excuse to kill some more zombies, coop alamode!

Too bad there are coming out, next to Bioshock Infinite. It will probably jack their sales by 30%.

qte are one of the most pathetic game designs ever created. Along with holding Quick and Hard Save, anytime.

Since there's no evidence it's a profit based decision, it must be some delusional narcissism.

I heard an interview last night on NPR, where he was demoing Infinite to a journalist, though I haven't been able to find it to send to Blue. It seem to be something coinciding with South by Southwest, which raps up tonight, iirc. I did watch this interview as well and liked it.


@ DangerDog, guess I need to look up the definition of egotistical, as it sure didn't seem like it to me. Nor did I notice the lie/semi-lie(s) in the video you linked. He/Irrational has been really up front about how much the game changed over development. Afaik Bioshock really did have an effect on FPSs as far as story depth and character interactions with NPCs.

I just finished Far Cry 3 again, v 105 w Swartz Mod, it's such an huge improvement over Far Cry, in almost every way. Now I'm looking forward to trying Tomb Raider next. All these FPS games seem to have improved, yet of course most of these AAA games are far too console centric but I really don't blame Levine for it.

I'd probably go with Dishonored and Far Cry 3, though I can look past most of their flaws. The console weaknesses are the most difficult flaws to see past.

WTF are you talking about, moaning about neutral quests? CDPR sold the witcher mentioning hardly anything is black-and-white in the decisions you need to make, but moreso shades of gray. And they were goddamn right. Not any other game made it harder for me to follow my moral compass and knowing what choice to make. There isn't any other game out there where I thought I was doing the right thing but screwed up epically.

What is a neutral quest? Picking berries in the forest? That would piss off the faeries.
Your joking, right? You can't be serious. They take well made quests then muck them up to make them seem neutral. Contrived is a good word, have you even played them? If so you explain to me about the three examples I listed in Witcher 1. In the third chapter forced bank choice, the forced girlfriend choice and chapter 1 Abigail. I would love to hear how your moral compass reads these, otherwise why the *contrived* outrage.

Oh god, not another game with Geralt, doing fake neutral quests. Why, oh why would such a talented studio keep torturing themselves and fans with this false narrative. I dislike my game narratives being based on lies...remember Abigail or when we had to decide between Shani and Triss (chap 3). Wall Oh then being forced to choose between the Order of the Flaming Rose and Scoia'tael at the bank was just as stupid. These are some really fucking neutral choices, thanks CD Projekt Red! Rolleyes

On the whole their quests are creative and fit nicely in the world. However this bullshit pretending they are neutral is ridiculous. Their neutral quests are possibly the worst in the gaming industry. Some of the best RPGs (and movies, yojimbo) ever created are based on NOT being forced to choose between two sides.

It's not like I don't care about this franchise, I've said since the release of the first Witcher, this is a terrible idea. They should/could have made the story about the player being a newly discovered Witcher in an open world (or hub base) game. The player wandering the world, doing quests. Trying to learn about being a Witcher and Geralt's adventures could have easily been used as backstory and lore.

Don't even get me started on QTE!

This is the fault of CD Projekt Red, they constantly advertise neutrality but never offer it.

Just finished a dungeon run, loot still sucks. Not a single person in the group got an orange or yellow in 5 bosses.

Exactly. How pro PC can a developer be if they force you to constantly spam your escape key. Not to mention don't have UI with a set key for each window or Save/Quicksave anytime.

Or maybe they are just delusional and believe they are a PC developer, instead of just being a PC port developer.
