  • Witcher 3 Gets Its First Patch Witcher 3 Gets Its First PatchFor those who’ve run into annoying glitches in their new Witcher game, fear not. CD Projekt Red has released its first patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The patch is now available on PS4, XBox One and PC.
    Unfortunately there don’t seem to be any patch notes for the XBox One version, so we can’t confirm any of the most important problems that need fixing have been fixed — chief among them the deadly save-corrupting bug that was discovered last week. Projekt Red is aware of the bug, but if the patch fixes it, they haven’t told us.
    What the XBox ...
  • Everything You Know About “Final Fantasy” Is Wrong Everything You Know About "Final Fantasy" Is WrongThe title, at least. You may have heard Square was deep in financial trouble when they started developing the original Final Fantasy game, and named it “Final Fantasy” because they figured it would be the last game the company would make before going out of business.
    Today Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of the series way back when, told Weekly Famitsu the story is false.
    The naming process for the original game began with the motive of looking for a name that could be abbreviated to “FF,” or “efu efu” which Sakaguchi says sounds good in Japan (no comment from me). Their first decision ...
  • The Witcher 3 Hates DRM As Much As You Do The Witcher 3 Hates DRM As Much As You DoDRM, short for Digital Rights Management, has been a controversial method of defending copyright in digital media, to say the least. DRM usually takes the form of bugs implanted in music or movies you buy digitally that do things like lock them to one device, prevent them from being played outside of two or three designated players, or sometimes require an Internet connection to function. People often feel as if they’re being led on a leash, or being sold half a product which the corporation can take away at any time, even though they’ve paid for it.

  • Now That Witcher 3 Is Out, What’s Next For Projekt Red? Now That Witcher 3 Is Out, What's Next For Projekt Red?The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a smash hit, selling millions of copies and delighting critics around the country. It’s certainly risen the status of CD Projekt Red, the previously obscure developers of the game. Now everybody’s wondering: what do they plan to create next?
    Projekt Red’s next game was actually announced back in 2012: a cyberpunk, open-world RPG literally called Cyberpunk 2077. It’s only now that they’re starting serious work on it, and they have no plans to show the fruits of that work until 2017.
    Projekt’s CEO Adam Kicinski is fully aware his company didn’t gather much attention until now, ...
  • More News On Final Fantasy XV Coming Next Week More News On Final Fantasy XV Coming Next WeekCurrently Square-Enix is planning to hold a press conference before E3, but we may hear a bit of news from the company before then.
    Square announced today it would be broadcasting another Active Time Report on June 4. The director of Final Fantasy XV, Hajime Tabata will be hosting and will provide “development updates” on the game’s progress. Also appearing in the live stream will be global marketing manager Akio Ofuji.
    Exactly what will be discussed in the stream has not been revealed, but it may have something to do with the updated version of the Final Fantasy XV demo, Episode Duscae ...
  • Crypt of the NecroDancer Gets Mega Man Mod Crypt of the NecroDancer Gets Mega Man ModCrypt of the NecroDancer, which was released last month, is a roguelike sprite-based dungeon crawler with a twist: it’s also a rhythm game. To progress, you not only have to bop monster after monster, but hop constantly to the beat of whatever music is being played in the dungeon. This music could be anything — you can import your own MP3s into the game.
    I’m telling you this not just because it’s a good game, but because someone’s created a mod for it that replaces every graphic and sprite in the game with Mega Man characters. You can play as Mega ...
  • Watch Out For Witcher 3 Bug On Xbox One Watch Out For Witcher 3 Bug On Xbox OneIt may be debatable which version of Witcher 3 is superior, but we do know which one currently ranks at the bottom. Some players of the new action RPG on the XBox One platform have reported running into an evil glitch that corrupts save files.
    Most people are running into this glitch by leaving the XBox One in suspension mode for a few hours, though a scant few have had it happen out of nowhere (triggered after dying) and others theorize the glitch may arise during a specific mission. But most agree leaving the game suspended for an extended period of ...
  • What Is The Best Version of Witcher 3? What Is The Best Version of Witcher 3?The PC version. Duh. What else were you expecting?
    Of course, that conclusion is only correct if you’re running a PC powerful enough to render the graphics of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at their maximum setting. If your computer is a few years old with no upgrades, either of the console versions of the game will probably look better. Or if you’re not a PC gamer, the mere factor of playing the game on a sofa is going to make all the difference.
    So between the two console versions — Playstation 4 and XBox One — which runs better? Eurogamer’s Digital ...
  • Toyota Sells Cars In Japan With Chocobos Toyota Sells Cars In Japan With ChocobosFor all the recent doom and gloom talk about the future of Japan’s game industry, it’s nice to know traditional console games remain in their public conciousness strongly enough to merit selling yellow cars with the Chocobo theme.
    Kotaku called attention to this Japanese car ad this morning, which uses the recognizable country-styled tune that has appeared in almost every title of the Final Fantasy series. The car in question is the Aqua, which is the Japanese name for the Prius C in the United States.

  • Witcher 3 A Smash With Critics Witcher 3 A Smash With CriticsToday is the day The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is released both in digital form and inside brick-and-mortars across America, and its reception so far is a lot grander than what the previous two Witchers received.
    Kimberley Wallace of Game Informer gave it a 9.75 out of 10 and said: “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt encompasses what I hope is the future of RPGs. It stands out for its wonderful writing, variety of quests and things to do in the world, and how your choices have impact in interesting ways. Usually something is sacrificed when creating a world this ambitious, but ...
