I'm fairly sure that's not just an American thing. I doubt people in Europe go "Yeah, a robot took my job, it's fucking AWESOME!"

In any case, automation is going to WRECK the amount of jobs available, especially low-mid level blue collar jobs. Anyone who sits there tut-tutting it is a moron.

That's an unfortunate marketing slogan, you know...

Like it or not, Star Citizen is newsworthy. The biggest crowd-funded game, with the potential to be one of the biggest scandals in the game industry. Makes sense for Blue to keep track of these delays and controversies.

I think we can safely say that if SC goes tits up, it will be THE biggest scandal in the history of gaming. I can't see anything else that even comes close.

(Not saying that it will go tits up, btw.)

Interesting that they call themselves "Developers of Gothic" and don't mention Risen. Trailer looks good.

Do they still ban people killing streamers ? Since about half of the PUBG population is streaming it makes for a lot of bans. I personally cannot give a fuck about streamers and do not know any of them, and it seems even if you snipe some obscure twitcher he can post a complaint and get you banned for stream-sniping. Really turns me off from the game (well the bunny hopping and spray strafing did not help make a good case either..)

I thought stream-sniping was where you found him and decided to be obnoxious? Now KILLING a streamer gets you banned???

Compare to Skyrim, where you don't really play a character, and where you're always annoyed that you're known by sight as the best warrior ever but morons keep talking down to you and challenging you to fights. Somehow I never felt like The Witcher 3 had this issue, even if I was still world renowned...

They actually made a little tongue in cheek joke about that in Blood & Wine. There's a bandit camp off all the way to one side of the map, the bandits attack you as soon as they see you, you slaughter them of course, and Geralt deadpans "I never understand why people would willingly attack an armed Witcher."

Which is so true. I mean, Geralt should be very well known (ESPECIALLY in Toussaint) at that point. Plenty of people shout at him and call him the Butcher of Blaviken after a mere glance, and of course it's immediately evident that he's a Witcher because of his eyes. And yet bandits will still happily attack him.

Yeah, it's a massively different sort of game, will need a different style of gameplay, and of course they haven't done themselves any favors by claiming that Cyberpunk will be "massively bigger" than the Witcher 3.

Witcher 3 is already kind of TOO big. Every time I play through it, I make up my mind that THIS TIME I'm going to do everything, and I never do. It's just too much. I'm kind of dreading a game that's even bigger. Their writing staff nearly killed themselves trying to come up with good quests for a game that large, so they probably aren't over-enthused by the prospect of having to create even MORE.

But all that said, these guys know what they're doing. They've made three games in ten years, and every single time, the quality made a humongous leap. Witcher 1 is a good, but flawed game. Witcher 2 is a great game. Witcher 3 is an all-time classic.

If they keep going like that, Cyberpunk 2077 will be the game that ends the game industry, since everyone will just play that forever and ever, amen.

While I get peoples gripes about Witcher 1 and Witcher 2 and Witcher 3..

These are still some of the best story RPGs I've ever seen. I mean Witcher 3 DLC's alone are worthy of 80$ each as they are fantastic.

I still loved #1 story.. Alvin you little bastard!

The story in Witcher 1 was excellent. I kind of want to replay it to see the story again, but the systems are pretty damn rough. I wish CD Projekt had infinite money so they could just remake Witcher 1 and 2 in the engine of Witcher 3.

Knowing your love of space sims and the X series, it would not surprise me at all if it was legit

If you ignore that the pictures of the pretty spaceships are just screenshots I made in various X games, then yes.

Costs to make games are on the rise, as ever, and they're only going to get more costly.

Well, marketing a game has largely been to blame for massively increasing the cost of a game's product cycle.

Also, always missing in that "Our costs are rising! In the 90s we could make a game for $12, now it costs $12 billion and we haven't raised the prices ever!" story is the fact that, sure, games are more expensive to make, but successful titles also sell MILLIONS more copies. Nobody was making hundreds of millions of dollars off a single title in the 90s.

Where is all the fucking "savings" that publishers promised by going to digital copies of games?

In the bonus checks of their CEOs, of course.

It sure is a purdy cockpit.

But yeah, this isn't getting released until 2019 at the earliest. And by that point they'll have Lip Animation 3.0, Realistic Fart Propagation 2.0, Solar System Physics Modeling 4.9 and Chris Roberts Synergy Buzzwords Seminar 2.4 ready to go, so it'll need another 18 months to implement that.

Etc etc etc.

I've watched that entire (absolutely excellent) documentary about them, and it's become very clear that they absolutely know what they are doing. Yes, they take risks, but so far all those risks have born out, and have led to what a lot of people call the best game of all time.

Whatever they're doing or trying for Cyberpunk 2077, they have more than earned the benefit of whatever doubt someone might have.

I'm just hoping it'll come out before 2077
