Some time ago the company released a video where some CFO dude recited how committed the studio is to inclusivity or whatnot, while looking like he is staring down a loaded gun. This is unsurprising.

They are a corporate entity and will follow corporate trends.

Are they publicly traded or privately owned? If it's the latter, then it's their owners directly choosing to be more progressive becuase they (most likely) believe that'll maximize their profits. It's shifting to a different target market (while hoping their former g*mers keep buying their shit--which they will :marseyfallout:).

"Corporate entity following corporate trends" is pretty empty. :marseyindignant:

50/50 on if they're griftmaxing or will actually implement any of it. My company for example is definitely the former. Other than middle management stressing how important diversity is in every other meeting and them scheduling a DEI presentation over MS Teams with some BIPOC actor during the lunch hour (which no one attends), it's been business as usual.

Idk where this whole cult following around CDPR even came from. Let's be real, they made one (1) good game and somehow convinced G*mers they're Ze Gaming Future who praised them like gods for years until they fumbled

The made one good game 3 times. :marseyindignant:

They had good pro g*mer PR, no microtransaction when they were the hot topic discussed, fully owned games with GOG. Etc.

It was more convincing to g*mers than if CDPR made more good games other than Witcher (x3).

Witcher 2 was ok but playing Witcher 1 made me suicidal

Jump in the discussion.

No email address required.

I like 1&2 equally, and 3 actually a little bit less even if Velen is the best area in all 3 games.

2 has probably the worst gameplay (yes, that's my unironic opion, I preffer Guitar Hero combat from the first one), but the best story overall.

1 has the best atmosphere (overall).

I really don't get popularity of Rome 2, the worst of modern TW for me (discounting minor ones nobody played). It's missing so many of the fetch things of Rome/M2 like general speeches, it doesn't have the polish and gunpowder of S2 nor the faction diversity of Warhammer. And naval combat sucks every time TW tries to model it.

Liked Attila though, trying to survive as Rome is fun, as are the underappreciated aesthetics of Christian Rome.

If you've missed my hundreds of posts about it over the years, NMS makes all other vidya obsolete and unnecessary if it scratches your tism itch correctly.

I'd recommend it on any other platform than Switch but it's a fine single player experience there all the same I've heard

We're expecting a major content update in 1-3 weeks and it always goes 50% off for those (around 4x/year + regular Steam sales). It's absolutely worth full price but saving 30 bucks is always a good idea so hold off I'd say.

I don't have any hopes for their games being good anymore. Since I'm Polish this assessment is automatically correct.

But, I really recommend the video I linked in my other comment. Not only for the ESG talk itself, but how completely corporate it all is. They guy even blatantly states that they are doing it for the investors.

Passion for games in that studio is evaporating with every passing minute and is being replaced with bullshit.

Jump in the discussion.

I don't follow them so it very well could be the case, I just don't know. I trust your judgement as a friend, but it doesn't stop me from hoping that they can still make good games. Cyberpunk had a disastrous release, but it is just a single data point from which it is impossible to extrapolate a trend, and as such I am very curious which direction their next game will take. Given how it will likely be the Witcher 1 remake, which is something I hold very dear, I can only wish that it turns out well.

But I will admit that the video you linked is alarming.

:marseyshrug: Well, I won't say you have to go doomermode on this (yet), Phantom Liberty released last year and was well received and Cyberpunk as a whole is apparently good now, so who knows how it goes. I'm not a prophet.

The remake will be the sign of how things may unfold, nothing else to do than wait and see. Personally I have no interests in playing it though, the original Eurojank version is the only one I ever need.

One thing I can prophesize is that they are 100% removing the s*x cards.

Yeah, and that's the reason why I'll never buy it, maybe pirate it at most no matter how good it'll be. I refuse to support SOVL removal....
