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.

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.

All in all it's overly long but if you've got 40+ hours and don't mind clumsy combat and clumsy writing which feigns neutrality while constantly forcing you to choose sides, go for it.

Before I'm mobbed and set upon with tar, feathers and ritual burning because 'women can't be witchers' and 'o'meh god geralt is teh greatest'. In the very first game (this one) iirc, there is some(thing/one) so powerful that can literally travel to any time, change time, perception and reality itself. Not to mention the final story arc. I just wanted to say

Does anyone know how to turn off that Live Stream crap on their sales page?

I know how to turn it off in our Steam UI, but I'm on Firefox atm and I usually don't log in Steam with browsers.

I just can't get behind trying this atm. Afaik, their lore 'to feed is to kill' makes it impossible. It would mean the death of humans, which are the source of food.

I liked TWoM but hate the fact they call the player a murderer if you kill the invaders (pillagers, rapists and murderers by day) at night. You can stop a rape, you can kill snipers murdering innocents but go to their base and kill them? Well your a murderer. No thanks FU!

While they are clearly talented, they basically killed modding and it's the only way for them to stay relevant. Unlike Fallout and Skyrim who have millions of people playing everyday, because of modding. Can't remember if they got caught up in the whole 'loot box' deal in the new driveable zone. Crap main story, open world and side quests are what make it shine.

Edit: Also they were forced to stop working on Hellraid: The Escape by WB to keep working on DL, iirc.

Ha! Donald Trump complaint about other (not) paying taxes...
It's worst than him not paying his taxes. Afaik, he's literally filed bankruptcy more than anyone in human history (Guinness Book of World Records?) and cost US tax payers at least a billion dollars in because of his fraudulent businesses like his fake college.

Hah, thanks for all those links, RedEye9. I was looking on Steam, no wonder I couldn't find it. It's a sequel to a console game, grabbed it to check it out.

Thanks for the free game link, Blue!

Starz apparently doesn't have the ability to get world wide deals. The majority of the world doesn't seem to have access to it without downloading it. If I'm reading things correctly not even England is getting without difficulty on the viewer's part. There's no Rami handed over rights, so my guess was they intended to move over to NetFlix.

Also if what HorrorScope said was true about Ash leaving (news to me) there's no way the show will survive without him.

Can someone explain how this game works/plays? I could always youtube it but I like to hear your opinions.
Not sure exactly what you want to know. It's modern world, secret societies and without spoiling the story a sort of plague.

90% of drops are green but you upgrade by stacking with crafting. As an example you might need 10 greens to make a blue and 2 blues to make a purple, 2 purples to make a gold and 2 gold to make red (highest atm). The story is really the strong point, well acted and written, with many notable npcs.

You can pay $13 us a month for a lot of really nice bonuses like more xp, extra key, higher abilty and skill points, create your own personal guild with 85 free slots (life saver) and so on. Or you can but upgrade items for your gear, so it's faster. I'd estimate to get all red gear (but not maxed) would take about 1000 hours of play. Quests are repeatable, there are dungeons (1-10 difficulty) and lairs with bosses, regional bosses. Several currencies make it confusing, there's even a currency for achievements.

I've been playing and didn't think to check back sooner, if you have a specific question let me know? I'll gladly help you in game, run you through somethings, if you want.
