Scot said:I do rather wonder at why for some players and reviewers this is even an issue. It is the wild west not the Care Bear west. Same goes for GTA where you are a member of a gang not a choir boy. You can play Life is Strange if you want everything to be about making nice choices.thunderC said:No , i could have sworn i read there is a new dialogue system in place when you encounter NPC's in the world. One of the video's you can see on the right , one button is for rob, another is draw weapon then you have 2 buttons that say Escalate & Deescalate (the conversation). But i mean, If you want to play as a Pacifist Buddha Cowboy not sure you will be having a great time, Its a Rockstar game after all lolSovrath said:
Good review. It's already preloaded on our PS4. Rockstar is cool about that. I probably won't play until the PC release. The PS4 is my son's gaming box.The long travel times I think are part of the detail. Everything on the west coast feels spread out, the states are huge, with lots of space in between places.It sounds like a fun place to chill and explore. There are a couple little things that I think would annoy me, like having to kill people when I didn't want to. The exploration sounds amazing.
Do you have to kill people you don't want to kill?I'm going from this sentence in the article:I lost track of how many times I felt like I had to kill someone to get out of something, even if I didn't want to.GTA V has a lot of moments like that where the only right way isn't the way you really want it to go down. So, in the end, you do what the game wants from you rather than what you want to do. It's not necessarily a big deal but it's a place where open world and directed narrative clash and it can often feel jarring or confining. Suddenly, you're not in control of your story anymore, the story is.
Also one thing I have noticed is reviewers always feel a need to give a nod to the idea that "aren't games where you kill people bad, aren't games with guns bad". Usually not said directly but always a nod to that idea.
Not sure the west was won with a quite word or two.

Notwithstanding the fact they signed a contract of course.
But it should not be applied to team efforts. The law does not give Witcher 3'd dialogue writer, engine creator, or whoever created the tool they're using to make their cutscenes an option to ask for more money despite their superb work. Why should the law give one person privilege above others when the game was a team effort by hundreds.
SBFord said:I felt his post was insightful from the context of an ostensibly similar IP. The rest...eh -- that's one person's opinion. The legal case will be fascinating to watch, though I think CDPR would come out looking like the "good guys" if they said something like, "Well, we don't owe you anything else, but we'll meet your 6% anyway." After all, they have a new game coming out soon and they don't want to smear the corporate name by being petty or by getting bogged down in a long legal struggle.mallettjt said:Never pay this man. Cd project red is a team with great originality and .ingenuity. Andrzej Sapkowski is a plagiarist who stole all his work from Michael Moorcock. Before he wrote the witcher series he was an editor and translator for science and fantasy who worked primarily on Michael Moorcock's elric of melnibone series. Now i want you google that character name as well as geralt of rivia and tell me the differences. There is not a single strand of originality in Andrzej's body the fact he is despicable person.I'm not sure why people find your comment insightful. It's unsubstantiated hearsay, but then again that's as good as facts on the internet, just ask Reddit. Your post is everything wrong with the current group-think echo chamber we've created on the internet.What is most disgusting about your post is suggesting justice be delivered based on your subjective moral judgement of that person and their social popularity.
Was CDPR original when they used his work because they couldn't create an original IP and story of their own, or when they continued to capitalize on a property they didn't create in a game format already established?The fact is both parties benefited from the relationship, CDPR much more so financially. They have made tons of money and should renegotiate the contract to be in line with industry standards. It would be stupid for both parties to waste money in court over greed.CDPR is making 97% of gross revenue from that IP. It doesn't seem ridiculous that it be 94%. Why wouldn't they renegotiate? It's the kind of thing you'd expect from EA or Activision. This is what happens when big publishers aren't held accountable and gamers give them a pass because they think they're buddies. It's called celebrity attachment; which is perceiving a personal connection with a person who doesn't know you exist. You and CDPR aren't buddies.
Either way, I wonder if Sapkowski will file a lawsuit now that the initial overture has been declined by CDPR.

I mean he beat Dark Souls on it's hardest setting with 9 different controller methods. One was a guitar hero controller. Another was a racing wheel.
Or Rudeism who built a controller for Overwatch.....with bananas
Or twerkingyoshi who beat Dark Souls 3 with a video game fishing rod.
Sometimes it is just the player
I'n sure folks could beat Dark Souls with multiple control schemes, but that doesn't really mean anything in a comparison of two control schemes against one another competitively.
A dude beat the original Super Mario Bros blindfolded (iirc). Are we to say that's evidence folks could win a Counter-Strike tournament blindfolded against players who aren't?
