Out of the way Geralt, Ciri should lead The Witcher 4Out of the way Geralt, Ciri should lead The Witcher 4

I don't see a single reason why Ciri would make for a good protagonist. She's an interesting character, but by the end of TW3 she's cutting down hordes of Wild Hunt riders effortlessly -- not to mention she's possibly also the empress. She's also not a witcher, and that means no signs, no potions, no witcher senses. She's a one-trick pony, gameplay wise.

Sorry mate I get that it's womens day and shit, but let's not get carried away.

Game devs defend loot boxes, call restrictions "censorship"Game devs defend loot boxes, call restrictions "censorship"

"What are developers to do?" How about being COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT about the shit you're peddling? The legislation isn't aimed at "censoring" anything - it's meant to ensure that customers are better informed about what they are getting into. If you think that's bad, you can go die in a fire.

Lol. "Youtuber" with 16k subs? And he also brags about it, too! Way to go, champ. Looks like he's trying a bit too hard to pick a fight with someone better known than himself (not exactly difficult) and hopefully use the manufactured controversy as a springboard... which by reading this piece, he at least partially succeeded at. Get a real job, mate.

The only newsworthy thing about this whole affair is that YouTube's DMCA system is utter garbage. Only... that's not really news, is it?

Isn't it technically not so bad to buy the game as long as you don't buy any microtransactions?

Tannhauser Avatar

A multiplayer game lives and dies by the size of its playerbase. So even if you "technically" don't engage in microtransactions yourself, you are supporting them, albeit indirectly, by keeping the game alive for those who do.

Why would cops just rush in? Haven't they heard about doorbell or phone? I mean try to make contact first since the threat wasn't to outsiders.

Clearly, they feared for their lives.

"Larger mining outfits" still use graphics cards for mining? In the case of BTC it's just no longer profitable to do so, it's ASICs or bust. I would expect that to be the case with other cryptos as they grow. Looks like this "problem" should take care of itself.Reply

I wouldn't hold my breath for this issue to fix itself. Once one cryptocurrency reaches a difficulty beyond GPU mining, another will always be ready to take its place.

Utter tripe. Seriously, current tech levels allow us to program bots that are capable of more meaningful conversations than the endless stream of PR-speak that these suits parrot every time. What are these hacks being paid for, exactly? Tanking the stock?

Well, at least he didn't call himself a "gamer". Otherwise, yes, it's the kind of empty words that are thrown in every direction at such events.
