Why are there so few swing types with melee weapons? The weapons feel way to similar to each other.

Too much like Halo. Too slow. Looks like the consolitis is everywhere. I can see the Halo and COD influences everywhere and has an Unreal vibe as well. I think we can make an educated guess what the target audience is.

I'm sure he will land on his feet. But I don't understand why he's so highly regarded. I don't think the metal gear games are good, especially the plots, which I think are terrible. I have seen better plots in anime. I don't get it clearly.

Yet they are going to buy anyway. This is the message you are sending to EA. You complain all you want but when it comes to see where the pavement meets the road, you buy anyway.

Usually I buy most of these warhammer 40k games and play them but I didn't even hear of this one.

Guess i'll look up if it's worth it.
That's because it was mobile shovelware.

Steam patch was 6.4GBs. Weird, because CDPR provides the patch to Steam, so I wonder why the GOG version was 17GBs? But I also heard that console patches were much larger, too.

I don't understand. On GOG it was 17 GB it said. On steam it's only 6.4 how? Delta patching? If so, then they need delta patching on GOG asap.

It downloaded the 17GB patch for me through GOG Galaxy, which promptly broke my game installation (the client literally says it's broken.) Now it has to download the entire 34GB game over again. Nice blowing through 1/6th of my monthly bandwidth allotment for that.
My sympathy. Contact GOG and let them know, maybe they will compensate you with something or give you a hearty sincere apology.

CIG has no leg to stand on. As long as Escapist did vet their sources as they say they did using pay stubs and ID badges, they got nothing.

Also why does the letter say that Escapist did not provide opportunity for CIG to refute the allegations? I read the damn article, Robert's responses aiming to refute the allegations made are right within the body of the article! WTF what am I missing?

They ping them, and they didn't reply. So they put the article up w/o a rebuttal. Once he did reply, they added his comments in.

Editor's Note: Updated with response from Chris Roberts throughout.

Cool, how long was the article up un-rebutted?

They are really trying hard to attract a younger audience. It's overhyped. I think there is not enough skepticism of this game. I predict a mile wide but an inch puddle deep.

They should be embarrassed for charging 900 for a virtual in game good. It's as if they were too busy thinking if they could and never thought much on if they should.

Easy to be magnanimous when you have the Fallout sequel coming out. Don't give them too much credit. It's nice don't get me wrong.

Ugh, again with Blue posting this SJW propaganda bullshit? Is he not aware of what a lying, thieving, morally bankrupt person this bitch is?

I'm done with BluesNews.. time to find another site that doesn't propagate this drivel.

Prediction: Crappy console port with poor PC conrols. Also I saw video summarizing the plot of all the games and it's absolutely terrible. I don't know how anyone could get away with such terrible plotting. It's as if the plot is a joke to see how much shit the writers could get away with. Now it turns out the specter of play to win rears its ugly head. Time will tell if my predictions come true. I have made specific predictions for which I can be hung.

What they list in the patch notes is good and this should be standard for all PC games especially so called triple A titles.

this whole idea of "they said they would!!!!" is just so fucking utterly hilarious to me

are you guys living in a world where everyone always does what they say they will do?? because let me tell you - its very often NOT THE CASE

especially when it comes to businesses, politicians, etc. etc.

i mean, i cant really understand how this is even considered a "good argument"... BECAUSE ITS FUCKING LAUGHABLE
Look up the difference between "is" and "ought". Sure it may be unrealistic to expect people to be honest. People being dishonest is an "is" about reality, and I'm talking about how it "ought" to be. See the difference? You are arguing about how people are dishonest and lie and mislead, and I'm taking about how they "ought" not do that and not deceive modders specifically in this case. So we agree that cd projekt red deceived modders?

GoG puts it on sale quite often. Never used CDkeys.


The game is massive, and wonderfully well done, and people are complaining that the mod tools aren't awesome enough. It's amazing how entitled people are. While I'd like to see what modders come up with, it's usually just reskins. At this point on games, making a texture replacement pack is kind of pointless, and assembling even a 5-minute adventure that's at the same quality level would take modders a terrifying amount of time.

And if it's NOT the same quality level as the base game, it's not worth wasting your time on, is it?
Yes it's a sense of entitlement when you quote what was promised and what was actually delivered.
They promised mod tools, they delivered mod tools. Get over yourself, they don't owe you shit.
You have conveniently ignored what my actual argument was. Let me spell it out: CD Projekt Red said in interviews that they would release redkit for witcher 3. Modders know about what redkit is because redkit was released for Witcher 2 and they know what it could do. They released a far less capable modkit and modders think they have been deceived, justifiably so.

Way too easy to dismiss an argument on the grounds that the people making it aren't owed shit and need to get over themselves. That argument is used when you cannot actually address the actual argument and have to attack the people making it. Feel free to try again maybe this time actually address the argument not the people who are making it.
