I guess this is for people with computers? No way to free trial Fallout 76 on a PS4? I couldn't find any kind of free Fallout 76 in the PS Store anyway.

2012 called wants their console back.

I tried the beta and didn't like it but they really have improved it.

The community is pretty amazing since there really isn't PvP. You have generous players dropping you loot all the time or leaving stuff in suitcases at train stations for you to pickup. Very friendly people!

So people who have raided the dev room with smurf accounts and have way more loot then they need? That's really nice of them.

It's weird how the city district just kinda ends and you're at the edge of a desert. Like they ran out of ideas and didn't think a city like that would sprawl endlessly away from the massive towers.

I assume you had that issue with FO4 too then? Hot tip, if you go half a block west from Fenway park here in Boston you don't end up in a wooded hilly area with no buildings.
My point is this is a typical dev design. You don't have to like it but it's far from the only game to do it. They can't literally build a 1:1 ratio city in the game as well as a large desert area around it if you don't want the game to take 10 yrs to build. Exact reason why you can see Fenway in the distance standing in front of BPL. IRL there are 2 neighborhoods hoods between them (20min car ride). They have to compress to keep the development reasonable.

Because having stuff pop in from Mechwarrior 5 was such an awesome idea they did it with the cops in Cyberpunk 2077.... /sarcasm

Explain to me how their police is ANY different then GTA aside from the DISTANCE they spawn. I'll wait. And don't red herring this with well GTA police get in cars or other nonsense. The topic you brought up is they spawn on you and that is what I am addressing.

Some 13 million people (strangely) pre-ordered the game on the basis of CDPR's reputation with the Witcher games, alone.

That is factually incorrect. EIGHT million pre-ordered. TOTAL sales 13+ million.

"Promise everything, deliver nothing close".

This business model is, frankly genius in it's simplicity. Say what you want about this fruitnut (and most of it is deserved) but I got to give the guy credit. This man came up with the most amazing ponzi like scheme for the digital age, and not only made it work, but still has people believing in this not a black hole. While I wouldn't do business with this guy is he was the last person on the planet he is an incredible snake oil salesman. So kudo's to him.

Seriously, what is the big urgency at this point? How could this game even have anything called "crunch time"? Crunch time ended about 5 years ago for them.

And just if not more importantly, where is all the keyboard warrior outrage over this/crunch? Where are all the bluesnews armchair hero's bemoaning crunch.. ohh wait.. this is their little darling they dumped $500 in and are now stuck from criticizing as then they have to admit they were taken by a scam that is never going to be anything more then a fancy tech demo. Got it.

Who called this over a year ago and said HSL did not have the talent or expertise to pull this off and either was going to put out a sub par product at best or project collapse at worst? oh yes that was me. If the 2010 looking trailer or endless delay didn't tell you something like this was coming you were not paying attention. For those that disputed what I said a while ago that I assume you will be adult enough to admit you were wrong. (we all know won't happen those people will just pretend they never said it chuckle)

On a more serious note I agree, it's going to be at LEAST retooled to some degree if not mostly redone. I said this when Paradox got the IP have Obsidian or CDPR do the game, either one of them can pull this off. HSL was over its head right out of the gate, clear as day to those of us following it from the start.

So the auction money goes somewhere. Surely it can be traced as I feel like there is now way any account nowadays can be totally anonymous.

Launder it though a couple different crypto currency exchanges via a 3rd party that allows anonymous transactions before dumping it into your actual account. Near impossible to track. This is why most org crime groups of any size are moving all to crypto. Much harder for the FBI or CIA to track.

I hope CDPR and the Polish authorities can find out who is behind this and then... deal with him. Wherever they live, there is always a dark corner where those people can get what they REALLY deserve.

Some security firms are pointing to the blackhat group "HelloKitty" due to the message they left on the CDPR file server. Apparently the syntax, format, poor grammar is very close to another one of their ransom notes.

That said, it may be CDPR. I can see both the pro and cons to that argument. If it was them, it wasn't them directly either a shell company or friend they had buy it with their money, to mitigate HK being able to claim their extortion worked. So we'll prob never really know in the short term. Long term we will, if bootleg, DRM free copies of the game are being sold on China street corners or Asian, Eastern European online stores then we'll know if it was CDPR or not.

Lastly, I doubt they paid 7mil, prob went for around half that after some back and forth. The issue with stolen source code, it degrades in value, leverage the longer you have it. They needed to take any reasonable offer they could get. If they got a few million they were totally ok with that I am sure.

Almost... at least when talking about...

Trying to claim I am in wrong using hypotheticals and unknown variables. Well if this happens, and that isn't true.. then you're wrong! Nice logic.

BTW 'almost' and 'close' only counts in nukes and horseshoes.

I stand by unpatched, (and I agree) misconfigured servers is a lead reason large companies get owned. Yes some kind of end user phishing, attachment, etc interaction is the leading cause but I was mostly focusing on the IT infrastructure and lack of proper maintenance as the culprit, end users aside. But hey what the fuck do I know.. only been in IT since the 90s.

Or more plausibly, it wasn't a mistake at all, but one disgruntled employee or ex-employee. Or more plausible still is that someone within the company has been radicalized by the legions of online hate towards that studio. I mean shit, if there are thousands of people sending them death threats, how plausible is it that someone from the inside who could do real damage finally succumbed to the mob.

Most likely reason is some exploit wasn't patched, and a script kiddie downloaded a tool to use said exploit in a paint by numbers 'attack'. As fun as all the conspiracy hypothesis are to read, the most likely explanation is the most common/boring. Not keeping up with patches server wise is one of the most common ways large companies get owned.

Who ever didn't see this coming once it was announced wasn't paying attention. What did they think was going to happen? A very nuanced property given to a no name studio. And spoiler, Bloodlines 2 is going to be a hot mess too for similar reasons. So let's please forgo the 'shock' and unforeseen 'disappointment' when that happens in the comments.

I don't know... it just seems to me that they shut the barn door after the horse already fled.

I said this on Twitter;

"offensive" is a relative term person to person. Second so we're going to have mod police now playing whack a mole? Third, someone will just make a site in Iceland or other territory that won't care for your "morality clause". Can of worms I don't think they need right now.

Now I get as others have stated below there is a greater legal issue at play. But it seems as you imply they decided to take a reactive stance not a proactive stance. And I am not sure I am comfy with some socially conservative people in Poland defining what is "offensive" for me. Seems like a slippery slope.

So CP2077 first 3 weeks as #1 on Steam, 4th week #3 and 5th week #5. Hundreds of millions in profits and depending on the source 10 to 14 million units sold. But according to some talking heads it's a "failure" and "disaster". alrighty then... Wish all my projects were a "disaster" by their standards.
