G2A did not accede to Gearbox in the short time since receiving a
list of changes
demanding to continue their business relationship. Therefore there will be no
partnership for special editions of the just-released Bulletstorm: Full Clip
has a statement from Gearbox Publishing:
As there has been
no public movement from G2A by the time Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition launched
now on PC, Gearbox Publishing will be doing their part to not directly support a
marketplace that did not make the new public commitment to protecting customers
and developers requested by Gearbox Publishing. We do not control G2A's
marketplace or where they may obtain keys from parties outside of Gearbox
Publishing, but we can confirm that today we have begun executing on our

accompanying description, which is spectacularly meta:

an interview with Victor Kislyi on Polygon
talking with the Wargaming CEO,
who accepts responsibility for some of the company's recent missteps while
vowing a renewed focus on World of Tanks
. He discusses issues that arose
from the game's international team and a failure to maintain proper
communication with their audience. Looking forward, he describes plans for a
visual revamp for the MMO tank game that may go live as soon as August. There's
also an embedded video with some before-and-after views to show this off. This
goes along with Kislyi's contention that the game can last forever like one of
the seven wonders of the world:
For Wargaming, 2017 is all about shoring
up its keystone franchise, World of Tanks. The plan, Kislyi said, is to
completely rebuild the entire graphics engine. You can see a sample of his
team’s work in the video below. The final overhaul is loosely scheduled for
August of this year.
“We realize that World of Tanks can last forever,” Kislyi said. “But we have to
prepare for a very long winter. The winter is coming, and it will not go away.
That’s a good problem to have. So the approach should be that we’re making the
game to be built like the pyramids, for centuries or millennia.”
an explanation of their CYBERPUNK
the legal protection for the title of their upcoming game (thanks
). The concern is they are co-opting a common phrase, but they
call this a "self-defense measure only." They hope to assuage fears this raises
in an image that skirts Twitter's 140 character limit. They clarify why they
registered the trademark before going on to explain what they think this means
WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT CD PROJEKT OWNS THE TRADEMARK FOR
A trademark is not a copyright or patent — these are totally different
rights and should not be confused. A registered trademark does not prohibit from
using the word "CYBERPUNK" if it's not used in the course of business (e.g.
branding, advertising etc.), and does not refer to products that are already
covered by trademark registration (more on that below). It also does not give
any exclusivity to set a game in a certain environment, or in a certain genre
(e.g. sci-fi, fantasy, horror, cyberpunk etc.).
I MAKE GAMES IN A CYBERPUNK SETTING, WHAT NOW?
As some of you might have researched, we already have registrations for
"CYBERPUNK" trademarks in the U.S. filed in 2011. There wasn't and there isn't
any evil plan behind that. If you have concerns, drop us a line.
DOES THE REGISTERED "CYBERPUNK" TRADEMARK PROHIBIT ANYONE FROM USING THE WORD
"CYBERPUNK" IN THEIR GAME TITLE
Use of a protected word in a title may be prohibited only if it could
confuse the customers. The trademark right cannot prohibit using a word as a
descriptive term, as speaking about a genre of games, films, etc. The role of
the trademark is only to protect words, signs used as titles of games, names of
products, etc. If someone names their game: "JOHN SMITH: ADVENTURES IN A
CYBERPUNK DYSTOPIAN SOCIETY" or "20 SHORT VIDEO GAMES SET IN CYBERPUNK WORLDS"
none of them should be treated as an infringement of our rights. This is
because, despite being part of a title, there is no risk that the consumers
would associate these games with CD PROJEKT.
Indie developer Enigami offers
a new trailer
, their action/RPG that's less than two weeks off. Luckily the game's
cast is not camera-shy, as this shows off its five playable characters. Word is
the five characters will battle one-at-a-time, like the mobs in a Batman movie:
"Directly control your party members in hyper-dynamic combat - each character
has powerful magical abilities and their own devastating Hyper Combos! Though
battles are 1v1 in classic fighting game tradition, party members can cast
spells from the sidelines and be swapped out through the tag team system." Continue here to read the full story

carpets and scribbling on floors to defend against some imagined, murderous,
supernatural threat at a masked ball?" Continue here to read the full story

the notion that this is an homage to Myst:

The Search is a short,
story-driven adventure game. Across four unknown worlds, you’ll search for clues
as to the nature of this place and your own existence.
You arrive in a mysterious universe, with no idea of where you are or how you
got here. A camera, a cigarette lighter and a ticket lie in front of you. And so
you embark on a journey of discovery and inspiration, as you learn more about
the world and shed new light on your own past.
Guided only by letters written by a mysterious stranger, you’ll find that this
universe works differently from our own. It’s a world in which obstacles can be
overcome by your own creativity - and where art comes to life to create tears in
the fabric of reality.

Someone asked about progress on our move. The short answer is there hasn't been
much. We fired our contractor, and have a quote from the floor guys on fixing
some of what he messed up. We also have a quote from another contractor while we
continue to try and juggle together the finances to pay for this work. So things
are at a bit of a temporary standstill. Hopefully we will get back on track
