I Shouldn't Be Gaming Right Now… But I Am!

Thank You, CD Projekt

Posted by deckard47 on February 18, 2008

Hey, American developers. You want to know how to do it right? Go check out what CD Projekt is doing for The Witcher. Basically, they are releasing much needed updates (like the previous loading update), along with a bunch of extra content. New animations, new character models, new lip-synching, new missions and areas, and a level editor for creating modules. And it’s all free for people who already bought the game. That is classy.

News: The Witcher is No Longer Hideously Slow

Posted by deckard47 on December 20, 2007

So there is a new patch out for The Witcher, and aside from a number of bug fixes, it alleviates the amazing slow load and save times, as well as transition periods. If anyone actually plays or likes this game, check it out.

Workie Workie, Again

Posted by deckard47 on December 8, 2007

So I am gearing up for finals, which hopefully won’t impinge too much on the gaming and blogging. It hasn’t stopped me from playing yet, in fact it would seem that the gaming is making the studying very difficult. Anyway, working my way through Ratchet and Clank, it’s pretty fantastic, although I am running out of weapons to upgrade, and I get the feeling that I am not more than halfway through… We’ll see. Oh, and I love the green slime monsters you can summon, especially how their little tentacles burrow after you around the planets. Plus, invisible imaginary musical ghosty things are awesome. Oddly, the old blog is getting more traffic than it used to, whereas this one only has 8 hits or something. I have no idea what is up with that. Basically, this post has no point, I just don’t want to do more Martin Delany research. Silly me. In 14 days I’ll be back in the SB, as it were. Weird. Good luck to everyone who has finals or whatever, and to those who don’t, you suck. Chances are I’ll be back here writing as soon as work ramps up again. Oh, and The Witcher is still entertaining, but it took me 10 minutes to get in and out of a building last night… If they released some kind of optimization patch, that would be amazing. Also, House is done, for now and that makes me sad. Ok, actual work now, see you all whenever I see you.

Witchy Enough for the Witcher?

Posted by deckard47 on November 5, 2007

Yeah, so I haven’t been posting much recently, due to massive working, and my purchase of The Witcher. It’s pretty damn good, despite some amazingly juvenile design decisions regarding “mature” content. Those options (and I am of course referring to having sex with practically every single woman in the game… Whaaat?) are entirely optional, so if you want to, you can play the entire game without following through on this idiotic game mechanic. I suggest you do so, because underneath that weirdness is a great, fun CRPG, the likes of which I haven’t seen in years. Oh yes, and watch out for the fucking load times, they hurt so bad.
