09.12.2013 @ 23:00Yes to all of this, and I'll add that when you contact GOG's support with a problem, you get an actual response from an actual human being who actually tries to help you and not a bunch of patronizing copypasta that starts with something along the lines of, "are you sure your monitor's plugged in." *cough*Ubisoft*cough*
09.11.2013 @ 13:15Aside from the obvious fact that I'd rather see CDPR work on their own IPs, I don't really understand why you think this would work for them or anyone else. Failed videogame IPs are poison. The gaming public has decided that Medal of Honor games suck, and any game called "Medal of Honor" from here on out is doomed to commercial failure.
And then there's all the other reasons.
1) "Medal of Honor" is literally just a name. These generic military shooters are by and large identical, and you can basically just develop one of them and then call it anything you want. So why would you want to name it after a failed franchise?
2) It's surprising enough that the market is currently sustaining two near-identical generic military shooter franchises (COD and BF) - the failure of MOH, if anything, proves that there's no room for a third one.
3) The only thing CDPR could do if they were going to go FPS (which they won't, and nobody in their right mind would want them to) would be to do it differently from anyone else to revive the genre and prove that there's still room for interesting games in it (see also: Bioshock Infinite), and in that scenario, the absolute last thing you'd want to do is slap the name of a failed generic shooter franchise on it.
So, in conclusion, no. If the relative success of CDPR has proven one thing, it's that even in today's gaming industry, you can still be successful doing things your way if you're smart and make a quality product. So if they want to continue being successful, I say they should stick to their guns. Going open world with the Witcher franchise is enough of a mainstream experiment, if anything.

slimgrin said:-And the biggie: unpolished games at release. With only two games under their belt, this might be an unfair accusation, especially since they religiously patch their games. But I'm hoping TW3 doesn't need much patching. Hoping... ›››
I'm kind of torn on this. Obviously CDPR's post-release support is second to none (that I can think of, anyway), especially in this day and age where companies rush unfinished games out of the gate and then abandon them after maybe half the issues have been patched. And that's great. But as psyched as I am for TW3, I really don't know if I should buy it at release. You know there's going to be patches out the wazoo and eventually an Enhanced Edition in 2015, so what's the point?
I dunno. Obviously I'm not saying they should stop with the post-release support either, so... I don't really know what I'm saying here.
01.11.2013 @ 20:01Considering the insane amount of work that's obviously gone into that Sile costume, it's kind of a shame she decided not to do the tattoo. And I mean that in the... the least creepy way possible.
Guys? You guys. Honest?
Seriously, though, it's kinda integral to the character's look.
