I cannot understand that so many people like yourself can complain about the stuff you complain about it the majority of your comment. I play games for comfort, too, but I really don't give a solid shit that I have to waste a tad more energy pressing ESC or another button here and there. My goodness. I get it that a game is never good enough, but complaints about fonts and miscellaneous shite like micromanagement in RPG's is stuff I cannot sympathize with

^ this is why we can't have nice things. Because of complacent slobs like you who won't stand up and fight for their rights when something is shit

I'm not surprised sales are only at 450k, I've only seen one other person on my friends list even playing it. It sucks but a lot of people just take a sale mentality to PC games these days, especially since many are running backlogs.

Sale mentality? What sale mentality? Look at the no. 2 spot on the list which has been in the top 3 at full price for weeks now.

Nah. It's mostly CD Projekt's own fault. Why do they chop up the game and announce 16 DLCs (and two expansions) before it's even released?
For many people, myself included, the logical conclusion is to wait at the very least until the 16 DLCs are released. Some people might even wait for the two expansions or an Enhanced Edition (like me).

Everyone knows about their excellent post-release support by now. People know that the game will be much better in a few weeks/months or in a year from now and everyone is expecting an Enhanced Edition.
Only the very impatient overhyped herd mentality gamers are buying a game like this on release. Everyone with the slightest ability of self-restraint would be waiting for the inevitable Enhanced Edition to have a better experience.
I know I am and from reading many comments on the net I know there are many, many, many more. As you said, people are working on their backlogs as they wait for CDP to release the 16 DLCs, the two expansions, patch the game and release the EE.

Finally, the second quarter is traditionally weak in sales and many gamers are probably still busy with GTA V and have no open world RPG itch at the moment.
Summer is approaching. The days are getting longer. People spend more time outside and a super-long epic RPG like TW3 may not seem so appealing to many at this time of year. TW3 is the kind of game that would most likely do quite a bit better in sales in fall/winter.

Lastly, the one million dollar question is how much does DRM-free hurt their sales? Every average Joe can easily freeload the game with zero effort (not that cracked games would be that much harder to install/play but it just does not get any easier than with TW3).

Good to see W3 topping the Steam lists. Well deserved, the game is fantastic. One should also take note that a lot of people are also buying the DRM free GOG version.

Most likely GOTY. Can't think of anything else coming out this year that could potentially provide a challenge.

Maybe Fallout 4 if Bethesda announce it at E3 and release it in November. I'm personally not overly interested in postapoc and TW3 would be my GOTY but objectively I could see FO4 dethrone TW3 if it comes out this year.
Except for that, yeah, no contest. There'd have to be a huge surprise release out of the leftest of fields to touch TW3.

If you look at AMD's latest financial reports you can see that they can afford about four more quarters of similar failure before they run out of their "cash and equivalents" reserves (running out of cash = insolvency).

They have already slashed costs like mad and sold a bunch of assets so there is probably little room for generating cash outside of extreme measures like selling the entire GPU business unit ("ATI").
So the only thing I'm surprised about here is that the analysts are giving AMD such a generous lifespan still. Personally I would say that unless they manage to very significantly raise their income, they will be gone by the end of next year.

They either need Zen, their 14nm GPUs (early next year) or any product of their mobile divisions to become a smashing success or it's game over.
It's seriously not looking good for AMD. With the already heavy cuts in R&D there is only so much they can do. It seems very unlikely that they will pull a magic winner product out of any of their hats any time soon. They definitely need another Athlon or it's bye-bye time.

The one thing that's unforgivable however, and driving me fucking insane is the goddamned lack of camera controls. Seriously, there are points I've wanted to punch my monitor. I'd just love to know which no-talent-assclown thought that was a good idea. And no, I don't give a fuck if they had to do that for consoles because there's no reason for it on the PC. None. Whoever they are, bar them from ever making another PC game ever.

^ Bjjjuuuuuuttttiiiiiiifuuuullll

Seriously. CD Projekt should frame this and after nailing it onto said no-talent-assclown's balls, nail it (with the dead balls dangling) to their front door so every morning they go to work they are reminded of not doing retarded shit like that.

HAHAHA ROTFL ... thanks for the promotion but I'd say I'm still only second tier (at best, well, or worst depending on one's POV on trolling) behind Cutter et al!

Agree with your assessment. The hypocrisy is ridiculous. CDP, Rockstar, Valve, Blizz and most indie devs can do whatever the fuck they want but EA or Ubi are the devil incarnate for the exact same offense.

what short memories you apologists have.

"we're purposefully not showing PC footage, it just looks too good. Don't worry, the game on ultra will BLOW YOU AWAY."

gameplay showing ultra being more or less identical to PS4

they lied, and moreover, they lied up to the launch date, trying to squeeze more sales in. they purposefully didn't show off PC gameplay, because it was TOO GOOD. not my words, this is what they were saying a week before launch.

it's fucking disgusting. and the fact that this, like all gaming forums is littered with people apologising for this behaviour is nothing short of ridiculous. BAIT AND SWITCH.

It's hilarious that I was called an apologist with simcity (for being a fun game) but it was always-online, therefore i was a shill. even though the online DRM was WELL known for months ahead of launch. but CDPR pull this shit as a launch day surprise for all you pre-orders! and the whole internet explodes in apologies.

What did you expect? It's the same crowd that gets screwed in the behind by Rockstar and then still lines up for GTA V preorders like the little sheep that they are. They are too addicted to their precious games to make a stand for once or give a game a pass or call out a developer/publisher for their lies. Can't have any of that.

Yes, it's disgusting but what can ya do? People eating at McDonald's is disgusting for a large number of reasons (not just the disgusting food per se), too, but people will never change.
Munch. Munch. Swallow. Swallow. Consume. Consume. Buuuurp. Wipe mouth. Rinse. Repeat.
And fuck any kind of negative implications detracting from the consumerist experience of overindulgence. It's all way too yummy to activate one's brain for once.

Uuuuggghhh that looks very bland and sterile. Where the fuck is the detail in the environments and the world? Very disappointing looking compared to the now 16 years old PST which had extremely detailed characters and backgrounds. Maybe not as high res but still just more detailed and fleshed out in general.

But this is making me wonder: Why the fuck did I pledge for this low quality crap?

whenever a game adds an install of Physx during its launching routine

I have always believed that nvidia does this knowing it screws up some AMD systems.

So let me get this straight... you effectively believe that nVidia are the ones writing the setup routines for many games since they apparently have the magical sabotaging power to smuggle PhysX on AMD users' systems?

BWWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA aaaaaahhhhh *wipes tears of laughter from cheeks* oh man that was a good one.

Honestly, bro, are you retarded?

More like nV bought PhysX and closed it up, and then provides awful software to emulate what nV cards provide in hardware(which they don't license to competitors). Similar to what Creative has done since EAX came out 15-20 years ago and ruined PC audio.

No matter how you slice or dice it, it is still the fookin' GAME DEVELOPER'S incompetence at fault for either poor implementation or a poor choice of their physics engine (or both).
To blame nVidia for sabotaging AMD systems by secretly smuggling PhysX onto AMD systems via setup routines that have not even been written by nVidia in the first place is a little... no, VERY dumb.

Just either read the whole fucking review or go to one of those numerous retard sites that only write a paragraph and have nice graphics with a score as well as pros and cons bullet points if reading is too hard for you. Sheesh. It's not like Eurogamer is the only gaming website out there, you whiny clown.

Sorry but I'm not going to bother reading any linus stuff, from what I remember from AMD presentations at the time they blatantly and repeatedly said they intend for it to become open and available to anyone, until they reach the point where they think it's ready for that they will continue working on it (in conjunction with certain partners and developers).

Mantle only ever worked with AMD's GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture. It's a mystery how AMD wanted to make it truly "open". They probably meant "open" to anyone who would have been willing and able to license their GCN architecture for billions of los dolares.
Luckily the whole thing is now a moot point thanks to DirectX 12. So good fucking riddance to the inferior AMD/GCN exclusive bullshit that was Mantle.

QFT!! Since when have we become such mindless zombies that we see the NOT SCALING of quests and enemies to your level a bad thing?

Look at how many BN people have preordered and keep buying GTA V for PC at full price even though Rockstar has repeatedly treated PC gamers like lepers. Then think and then answer that "mindless zombie" question for yourself.
The vast majority of gamers are mindless consumerist zombies who will lap up anything as long as it makes them believe they will become a member of the cool kids club if they join the lead lemmings who make the call on what is "awesome".
God forbid anyone should activate their own brain and make a stand. Or maybe even pass on a game if the company making it is known for despicable behavior.
No, Sir. Today's gamers deserve level scaling because they are too retarded to handle anything else. Sad but true.
