Good news! They've already confirmed they have another Witcher game planned.

They have? News to me. Source, please?

I can't remember where I read it, so I've been doing a bit of digging. This is about as close as I can find (with a bunch of other similar articles), which means it looks like everyone was jumping the gun a bit, including myself.

I apologize for getting everyone's hopes up.

Nah, I kind of figured you'd just been hopeful and had read more into something than what it really said. And if you did actually have something I missed that would have been awesome, so no worries.

You can't honestly tell me that Street Fighter 2 didn't have much of an influence on gaming.. it's literally the cornerstone of every fighting game that came after it.

I debated SF2 pretty heavily, but it was an iteration on games that had come before. It didn't heavily reinvent an already burgeoning genre.

I've wanted to read the Witcher stories for some time but haven't done it yet. Are the English translation books hard to find?

They're all available on the Kindle store. The last one just came out, too.

Warning, Witcher 3's writing is substantially better than the books'. (Andrez Sawpkwosisksji is exploding somewhere right now.) Geralt is kind of a whiny bitch in books 4, 5 and 6, and overall not much even HAPPENS in books 4, 5 and 6. So far, I've been somewhat disappointed in them, but that's due to the game being so freaking awesome.

1) Speed up unpassable loading screens during planet scanning. I don't play on a Shitbox with a 5200 RPM drive. I have an NVMe SSD. You can load in that new planet in roughly 0.2 seconds, so I expect to be sitting at that new planet in 0.2 seconds. I've seen the cool little "fly to a new planet" animation plenty of times now, I understand it's the only thing your animators spent more than five seconds on, but it's enough.

2) Shut up SAM.
"It's more cold than normal, Pathfinder."
"Temperature has stabilized, Pathfinder."
"Massive temperature drop detected, Pathfinder."
"Temperature is normal again, Pathfinder."
"Warning, sudden temperature drop."
"Temperature has stabilized, Pathfinder."
"Massive temperature drop detected, Pathfinder."
"Temperature has stabilized, Pathfinder."
"It's more cold than normal, Pathfinder."
"Temperature has stabilized, Pathfinder."
"Massive temperature drop detected, Pathfinder."
"Temperature is normal again, Pathfinder."

FFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU....

3) Fix frequent crashes during scene transitions on Nexus.

Other than that, I have few issues with the game, and am very much enjoying it.

Clearly we need to exterminate all spiders BEFORE they figure out they can eat all of us.

I say we take off and nuke the planet from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

If I had a ballot, I'd put Donkey Kong, FF7, Solitaire and Myst in there.

Donkey Kong was probably one of the most iconic arcade cabinets of all time.

FF7 was groundbreaking at the time it came out, with the way it used polygons and 3d scenery, and it ushered in a new age of games.

Solitaire has been played by roughly 7 billion people.

And Myst, for whatever reason, was an iconic game that shifted umpteen million PCs.

The rest were good games (in many cases better than the four previously listed), but really didn't have that much of an influence or were just iterations on stuff that came before.

I could be persuaded for a case for Wii sports.

Wander across one of Andromeda's worlds before terraforming its hazards and SAM will warn you repeatedly for entering and then exiting an area of slight cold, heat, or radioactivity. This will happen every time you enter one of these areas, and then every time you leave.

Ugh, don't fucking remind me. It's been a blessing to be on a planet with no environmental hazards. How on God's green earth did NOBODY fucking mention this in testing, Bioware? Or did Mac just sit there with his dick in his ears again, pretending he knew best?

Gamestop being a giant pile of shit with terrible prices probably also had something to do with it.

Haha, I was thinking the same thing. "Gamestop's shitty customer service killed 150 Gamestop stores."

Let's all shed a tear for poor, poor Gamestop. While you're doing that, would you like to pre-order a Scorpio, or trade in your copy of Zelda for $6 in "get pissed in your mouth and like it" credits?

Looks cool, would depend heavily on price whether I'll get it. And since Blizzard has been about MO MONEY in everything lately, I'm fairly worried it's going to be expensive.

As far as i'm aware Amazon doesn't have a presence here in Utah, and we're paying tax on every transaction.. How does that work?

You can blame your local government for that:

"Effective January 1, 2017, the Internet sales behemoth will begin collecting Utahís state sales tax. Itís part of an agreement between Amazon and the Utah State Tax Commission. Amazon will collect both Utahís 4.7 percent sales tax rate and local option sales taxes, the commission has said. "

FOUR POINT SEVEN?! And you're complaining?! It's more than double that here. >:/

Last I checked, sales tax was 21% in the Netherlands, so it could always be significantly worse.

In OK, we've had to pay tax on Amazon sales for years, but always with work from my end. Fuck that noise. If you want me to pay tax on shit, add it into the price and let the seller deal with sending that to the government. You know, the way it works EVERYWHERE.

Cool article. Amazing that he turned down royalties on the games, thinking they wouldn't sell anything. That's probably cost him a sweet few million bucks...
