    More like a desperate attempt to change things around. Like when you know you have a problem, but also know there's no way you can hope to fix it at this point, so you try at least do something. The DLCs heavily expanded on the idea (in fact, I'd say it was what set them appart from base game the most), so clearly, the devs knew what was wrong.

    Best way to fix this is have drastic changes to the NPC dialogue (at minimum) or area design follow major events or a certain time duration. Lazy devs would rather just build out so they can go "WOAH THE MAP IS SO BIG!" but that's life

    They've been awfully quiet recently for a game that was suppose to be launch in three months.

    They're likely deep in development and production sprints.

    Not a lot changes, but it's no different from other open-world RPGs in that way. I don't see any examples of games that do it much better.

    And there are some things that change based on how you handle certain events. Like if you set the Plague Maiden free or if you resurrect the spirit in the Whispering Hillock. Nothing dramatic, but it did make me feel like my actions had significance.

    Advertising blitz on TNT and ESPN and YouTube will probably begin in March. No sense doing any January advertising when everyone is tapped out.

    There are many instances where you can see changes after you finish the quest for example in Blood and wine: Vivienne says she would like to travel to Novigrad and you can meet her there.


    Then you can find Guillaume, if she leaves.


    Or you can find them together if she decides to go out with him.


    There is a lot of detail that many people miss.

    I'm ashamed to admit that I still haven't played Hearts of Stone or Blood and Wine yet. I finished my playthrough of TW3 well before the expansions were released, and I haven't got around to replaying it yet.

    Play Hearts of Stone if you dont have much time, its about 10h long and has the best quests and storyline in the whole series but Blood and Wine is awesome too and a good send off to Geralt with a lot of references to Witcher 1 and you get to spend time with Regis.

    It's more like GTA than an RPG in my opinion. A pretty cool world to traverse through from one mission to another, but with no greater depth. It's miles away from a hand-crafted Piranha Bytes world where exploring actually matters. It's a big reason I never got into The Witcher 3 like others did. The Witcher 2 was better in that regard, because the smaller areas allowed for more attention and focus. I'm hoping Cyberpunk is more Witcher 2 than 3, in that respect.

    How the fuck can you get lost when every quest is "go this marker" and everything mildly interesting on the world map is marked as well? Even if you turn off the "interest markers" there's nothing to find but randomized loot anyway. So exciting!

    But that's what many codexers want. The numbers going up and down, the loot and the endless combat!

    Witcher 3 had so many cute girls. Cyberpunk so far looks like real decline in that regard.

    We haven't seen any real character from the game other than Keanu and the "I'm your BFF and I'm about to die at the end of tutorial" guy.

    That's for the development team, the PR is handled by different people who has nothing to do with how good or finished the game is.

    Knowing CDPR I'm sure there will cyberpunk hotties around, but probably not as in your face as they might have been in the old days because of ye olde politikal klimate.

    Also in Witcher lore the sorceresses are exceedingly beautiful and grand looking by design (something the show kind of fucked up).

    I suspect that the latinobro only dies if you go full nuts in that particular quest. It would be strange to reveal that he dies no matter what.

    What changed in the show? I haven't(and probably won't) see it.

    It would be very strange to downplay provocative dress and sexuality in an urban futuristic setting. Electronic club/party scenes are already full to the brim with that stuff and have been for ages. Of course CDPR care more about politics and sensibilities than the artistic integrity of the setting, though. Just like how gore has only been reduced in films/games over the years.

    Yennefer is okay looking but the girl they got to play Triss looks like a fucking Walmart Mom and dressed in a nightgown looking thing. At least Yen wears nice clothes and has quality tits. It was mostly Triss that annoys me.

    Also Yen fights with a sword instead of magic 90% of the time and takes on like 5 big dudes at once, which... okay.

    Ahaha, they made Triss black?!?! She looks ancient, like a leather cushion come to life.
