it doesnt have to be better... it just needs to be of equivalent quality

that alone destroys every other game in existence

regardless, im not sure why you wouldnt think they would be able to expand their winning formula to a new format - and im basing this on the record at hand.. i played and finished all the Witcher games, there is a very clear progression in terms of technical ability and game mechanics and so forth.. if they continue that trend, then its not a big leap to think that Cyberpunk will surpass W3 - especially considering the amount of dev time and size of the team they have devoted to it

sure anything can happen, but based on past events, its totally reasonable to expect them to succeed ...

frankly all the witcher games are better than most RPGs.. W3 just happened to be an epic home run - no need to expect lightning to strike twice, because these guys are just far more capable than every other RPG team out there already

They had three iterations of TW to find their footing and perfect. I wouldn't expect Cyberpunk to beat it in the first, especially given that moving to cities and firearms is less intuitive than wide open landscapes and swords. That's harder to get right.

Still expect it to be good (fantastic, actually), but I'd think the first won't be as strong as TW3 because it isn't standing on the shoulders of two prior entries. First ones almost always end up a bit sliced and diced as features get cut for timing that end up included (or merely refined and perfected) in sequels.

Regardless, tempered expectations aren't a bad thing, haha.

Here's what I see as this year's take on the old saying: March comes in like a lion and goes out like soaking wet lion.

Sounds about right. I got completely soaked on the five minute walk home from work today. Time to invest in a good umbrella I think.

When I moved here I bought this one, for a good chunk more than it's selling now, and it's served me well. This one also seems good, or you could always go the Cutter option.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

Downloaded the 36GB, played for 15 minutes and uninstalled because this isn't a FPS but it's a fucking lame jump&run game. What a piece of shit. I should've known better than to even mouse over that download button with an EA game *sigh*...

Where in the world do you get your expectations? We have YEARS of TitanFall gameplay. What next? Will you get pissed off at Civ6 not being an RPG?

He's CJ. The only game he enjoys is finding incredibly lame new puns to describe every single video game he hates (which, incidentally, is every single video game.)

He's a joyless, soul-sucking human being.

Haven't finished Witcher 3 yet (too many damn ?'s on the Skele Isles made me take a long break).

But Witcher goodness with some Shadowrun.... CD Projekt... please choose which kidney or other organ you'd like to have this game out in 2017.

Fortunately, by that point I was kind of very compulsive ? hunting, but the few I went for in the Skeles were not worthwhile, fully killing it.

I actually think that, for several reasons, exploring was significantly less rewarding in The Witcher than in the Bethesda games. But the writing was so massively better. Geralt was absolutely one of the most well defined and deep characters I've seen in a game, and everything was handled so well around him.

A game around Ciri would be fun, but TW3 wrapped everything up so well. I only played TW3 but still felt like it was a great sendoff to a great character. Not sure what more I'd want. You can't really change the ending, a prequel doesn't really help make Geralt super famous and powerful, as he starts not there (kind of there), and he's such a great character I feel it'd be hard to make a new central character without trying to Xerox him...

Please, please, no Dandelion anything. Just pretend he didn't exist.

The first two Walking Dead games and a Wolf Among Us are great.

I don't think a single person had trouble noticing that.

No, and even so, it's heavily backloaded. Witcher 3 is the lion's share of those sales.

Yup, which is why I'm not concerned it's only 25M. It wasn't a particularly well known or well regarded property prior. The first one seems to have been considered just ok, but pretty good for where it came from, but it grew with each iteration.

3 is probably the best written game I've played that wasn't about plot (e.g., Telltale-type games.) Geralt walks the line of being a stubborn dick and a charismatic leader perfectly. You get why people are attracted to him and want to be around him. Some things he says are dickish, some insightful, and some empathetic. Great writing and acting. Probably the single most memorable character for me, or at least the one with the most depth. I jumped in at 3 and was ready to endlessly mock the love triangle but ended up actually caring about him, his partners, and who he ended up with (and why.)

CD Projekt has a fan for life from 1 game. Fanboy, probably.

But I'd really be willing to stab just about anyone to have it for the Switch.

When Marvel made the deal with Sony to use the Peter Parker Spider-Man in the MCU I was hoping that just once we would get a full grown man version of Peter instead of this continual high school retread.

I know that for a good percentage of the comic book's lifetime Peter Parker was in either high school or college...but isn't 6 movies enough? (oh wait, my bad...got to cover all the demographics right? :P)

That said, for what they chose to do Holland seems like a great fit.

PS: Good news is that Legion is awesome. Bad news is that Iron Fist sounds like it was written by teenage interns on their first project and the pacing makes my pet tortoise get up and leave the room out of boredom.

From watching the trailers, this seems like the first time they've truly captured Spiderman-as-student well.

Yeah, like many here, I groaned when it was another young Spider-Man, knowing I'll stab someone if I hear "with great power blah blah blah" again, but then we got Civil War, and then the trailer, and I'm sold. Like you said, we're getting an actual awkward teen instead of a mid 20s person pretending to be an awkward teen. And yeah, Tom Holland is an attractive guy, but he still comes across as awkward and you can imagine a nerd starting to grow into himself, whereas Andrew Garfield looked like a model with perfect model hair getting bullied for being, I dunno, 25 and still in HS?

Pay attention to him, people. There's no one else here with his special insight on selfish and obnoxious opinions based on an inflated opinion of themselves (not to mention a keen understanding of failure). You are in the presence of a master...

Which of my opinions have been selfish? Where have I advocated an opinion that helps me at the expense of others?

Nor does the one who cluelessly thinks this is all due to sin & imperfection.

Yup, I remember that time Rudy Guiliani went on to Fox News to brag that the President asked him to bar all Jehovah's Witnesses from entering the country.

Slippery slope arguments are rarely good ones. Also, comparing people born not identifying to one of two genders who only ask that you respect this is a lot different than someone wanting to harm small children, is it not?

Not to some, I guess.

But hey, 4chan, 8chan, and parts of reddit are positively full of people who will argue that pedophiles who don't act on their urges should be an accepted part of society, a notion I will never accept myself.

You must admit, though, that it's quite applicable and descriptive in this day and age

Eh, the phrase has been twisted and abused into meaninglessness now.

"Special snowflake" when used pejoratively, is supposed to signify a person who has unreasonable expectations that their own personal needs be met over the needs of others.

But today you see the term trotted out (usually by /pol/tards) to describe vast swaths of the population.

The term is basically used today to mean "someone who is concerned about something I'm not personally concerned about".

Which, quite frankly, makes the person using the term more of a snowflake than anyone else, because they are dismissing the concerns of a lot of people simply because they personally don't give a shit.


Yup.

And, like you said, it should be someone concerned with their own needs, but is generally thrown at members of the majority discussing concerns for members of a minority, while the person using it is concerned with their own needs, so... yeah, back to your final sentence.

It's a fantastic satire on Fascism. It also happens to be an amazing action movie.
