Witcher 3 Considering "Insanity" Mode - briefly
(hx) 04:41 PM EST - Jan,29 2015 - Post a comment
Polish developer CD Projekt Red is working on an "Insanity" difficulty mode for open-world role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that sounds like it would certainly live up to that distinction. During a recent Twitch live-stream, CD Projekt Red developers said they couldn't reveal too much about the Insanity mode, since it's still in development, but did confirm that one idea being tossed around is that dying even once would wipe your entire game save. CD Projekt Red's overall goal for Insanity mode is to make it incredibly punishing but still fun, developers said, as reported by Game Informer. The developer didn't reveal any other ideas it had for Insanity mode, and it should be noted that nothing has been finalized. The Witcher 3 release date is May 19, 2015 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is Not Safe For Work - briefly

The Guardian reports that the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt contains 16 hours (!) of sex scene motion capture data!
But the development team behind forthcoming fantasy adventure title The Witcher: Wild Hunt seems unfazed by either moral or technical concerns. The game, due for release in May, contains sex scenes constructed from over 16 hours of motion capture data. There may not be any of Houser's dildo sex in the George RR Martin-esque fantasy plains, but there is a Hugh Hefnerian amount of lovemaking. It comes quickly, too. Within the first 15 seconds the camera droops to linger on a woman’s fulsome posterior, moments after dismounting the protagonist, the white-haired monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia.

"People might think we’re putting sex into the opening scene for no good reason," explains senior game designer Damien Monhier. "No, no, no. We are establishing that your character was intimate with this woman recently in order to plant in your mind that, at very least, he must enjoy her company." In subsequent moments we see the pair gently flirt in an atmosphere of easy-going post-coital familiarity. Their secrets have been spilled and now, as she freshens at the mirror and he tousles her hair, a deeper affection between the characters is established.

"Through sex we have shown that this is a person who Geralt would be compelled to chase after if she went missing," says Monheir. Five minutes later, the drama shunts into the future, a time when the woman, Yennefer, has disappeared. Your goal as lovelorn Geralt (accompanied by an older witcher named Vesemir) is to track her across the Skellige Islands. "Sex is the quickest way in which to establish the relationship and provide a justification for the player to pursue this woman," he continues. "We couldn't just tell you to go find someone you don't know or care about. It wouldn't work."
In Witcher 3 related news, CD Projekt Red has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will run 30fps at 1080p on PlayStation 4 and 30fps at 900p on Xbox One. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comes out on May 19.

Xbox Hardware Sales Are Down - console
(hx) 02:12 PM EST - Jan,28 2015 - Post a comment
IGN is reporting that Xbox hardware sales are down for the quarter closing out 2014. On the positive side Microsoft says mobile device sales are doing well and the company still managed to generate a net income of $5.86 billion.
Microsoft announced $26.5 billion in revenue for quarter closing out 2014, with Xbox sales down, but mobile device sales for units like the Surface Pro and Lumia phones doing well.

Net income in general is down from last year's report of $6.55 billion, however, this time at $5.86 billion.

Part of this drop, according to Microsoft, is related to $243 million worth of restructuring and integration costs partially due to the company's acquisition of Nokia's mobile phone business.

Ubisoft is Revoking Far Cry 4 CD-Keys - briefly
(hx) 02:01 AM EST - Jan,28 2015 - Post a comment / read (4)
Buying CD-keys from third-party re-sellers (IE: anywhere other than Steam/uPlay/Origin or a retail store) always comes with an inherent risk, just as buying anything on eBay. However, once you've paid for the key, had your game client accept it, and are able to boot up the game, you wouldn't really expect for it to be suddenly taken away. Well, if you bought a copy of Far Cry 4 from a re-seller such as G2A or Kinguin (#1, #2), that may be exactly what is about to happen. Ubisoft has released an official statement to Game Informer confirming earlier forum reports of users having their games removed from their libraries. "We regularly deactivate keys that were fraudulently obtained and resold," said the representative, adding "In this case, we are currently investigating the origin of the fraud and will update customers when we have more information to share. In the meantime customers should contact the vendor from whom they purchased their key." G2A, one of the other re-sellers involved in this situation, released the following statement via Facebook:
OFFICIAL STATEMENT ABOUT THE UBISOFT SITUATION

As some of you may already know, steps have been taken to remove games purchased indirectly from a publisher, via main marketplaces in the web. G2A.COM is not in any case responsible for any of these procedures. However, we are well aware of this process and will do everything possible to compensate for that.

For users who have made transactions without G2A Shield, we will check if the corresponding merchant was responsible for the withdrawal of the code. If so, these users will get a compensation. Any user who used G2A Shield affected by the current process will get either a new code for the game or the money back. G2A.COM will make every possible exertion to prevent this kind of procedures in the future and exclude merchants responsible for such incidents from the marketplace.
