"Fascism is back. Blame the Internet"

Which is pretty much like saying, nuclear bombs are back, blame uranium. Or spliting people in half is back, blame chainsaws.

It's not the internet, it's HOW WE USE IT. As for the why we use it that way. Well, look no further than the need for control.
Isn't that what the article said or are you just repeating it for effect?

Things you never really want to hear about an unreleased game:
"catastrophic bugs"

No doubt windows 'exploitation' 10 will magically make everything better.

Still a bunch of jerks, why can't the last survivor be a female PC. Iirc, Raine never talks which makes any excuse bullshit (i.e. developers often site more dialog cost). If he did talk, it sure the hell wasn't much.

Sounds pretty cool, thanks for the info and the heads up link for the game! Anyone know how many times you have to play it, to be able to have all the choices?

Finished one ending. Appears to be 24 total endings. But you don't have to finish all of them as best I can tell.
Thanks!

I did find an article about it and mentioned about 30 minutes per ending. Guess that makes about 12 hours total. Plus a few more hours, if you try to explore everything, each time. So this is a SPOILER article.

One of the most shallow games of the mid 2000s. Horrid engine (power to graphic ratio), invisible walls but fun driving for the most part. Think I'll wait till they issue a 50 gig graphic fix patch (that does jack shit), 3 years after release.

I'm definitely waiting to hear from you guys, first. No way I'm trying this since it's "feeding" is killing. Obviously signs a dead warrant for all vampires and humans.

Fyi, just checked 'is there any deal' it's been on Steam for $1.49 and as mentioned positive reviews. I don't use SE service but might get it on Steam during some sale.

It's a free Steam key.
Cool, thanks! Thought they were starting their own service (as if we need another one).

win 10 exclusive, pass.

Windows 7 is on it's 9th year. Might be time to go die on another hill.
Not sure I'm ready for the exploitation 10, so far it's been mostly all bad news. By the time most of the security companies find all the backdoors it will probably be too late. Not to mention, has there really been any significant technological advancements? Or (no offense intended) do you just subscribe to the idea of buying/free updating it because it's the newest offering?

What SJW bullshit?

There was a female with a sniper rifle in that trailer, and she was a person of color, too. That's all it takes for Cutter. Is there a character that isn't reflective of how Cutter sees himself? Then the game is SJW bullshit!
Lol, I literally had to look it up. I wonder what the pejorative term is for peeps who don't believe all people are equal?

I'm in the minority but many of the quests are terribly written (chap 3 bank job, Shanni and Triss) and the constant false choices (chap 1 Abigail). Forced to play as a poorly written egotistical male instead of creating your own Witcher (male or female, good or bad or neutral) then learning about the world, while doing the main quest to find out what happened to the magical widget.

I mean, those would be fair criticisms if the game had been created out of nothing, but it's an adaptation of a series of books, and geralt is the main character from the books. It's called 'The' Witcher not 'A' Witcher. This is like complaining that you have to play Batman in a Batman game.

I thought the writing was pretty good, but this game was a bit of a slog to get through, especially towards the end.

You're falling for the troll bait.. These people never understand the points your trying to convey much like arguing religion.
Lol, I love irony too. So, since I listed real examples of the problems, whether you agree or not, guess who that makes the troll? See irony is fun for the whole family.

Geralt was dead in the books, it's the world that's important. Afaik, they used Geralt because of the Polish series fans. Most of the rest of the world didn't know he existed.

The developers are clearly talented but I feel like they missed a great opportunity to showcase the world. They fixated on Geralt, created this false neutral narrative. I'm saying the game would have been better if we had been fledgling Witcher on the hunt for what happen to Geralt after the books. Then we could have retraced his steps if necessary and would have been out from under his shadow. There could have been 'real' neutral choices.
