Congrads…..that was a fun one but a bit nervous.

Haven't played in a week since I'm back in Warframe but need to get back in and wrap up about 3-4 Unknown areas

Plus nearly every game has much better quality options on PC: higher resolution, better textures, better framerates, etc. Not to mention games are always much cheaper with lots of sales happening multiple times throughout the year and dozens of games being given away for free. My Steam account has over 500 games, in which more than half were given away for free at some point, while my Epic Games profile has over 70 games all of which were also given away for free at some point. There's very few reasons if any at all for consoles outside of exclusives imo... especially in an age where PCs can be connected to your living room TV just like a console and can utilize your controller of choice whether it be PS4, XBONE, or something else entirely and work wirelessly through bluetooth. Thought that one build Kotaku showed off that was an XBONE, PS4, Switch, and PC all in one case was sweet. Anyways, was just letting people know how cheap The Witcher series is on PC, didn't mean for it to somehow turn into a console vs PC discussion. If you don't PC game, then it matters not.

didn't even get killed either (i used something that kept my health bar full and not diminishing too much, what that was i could not tell you, but that was cool and worked, obviously) and playing on normal...

I'm going to have to starting playing this again. I have done everything except fight the griffin in the introductory world.

That was a good fight and I'm in the same area. I was looking at the Big Sale in PS Store right now and having put in a lot of time in Elder Scrolls Online, I came close to buying the latest DLC, Elsweyr that involves fighting Dragons but I don't miss that $14 a month that gives you a unlimited stash and some crowns. I like ESO for the combat, playstyle, look, how others are in the game and cross paths helping with missions and Boss Fights.....but The Witcher has been fun, just need to put more time in it.

I originally finished the Witcher on PS4. Now that it's on Game Pass, I think I'm going to start again, and also buy the DLC.

When I reloaded so I can see the full tweet graphic pop up (not just the text), I thought I had double posted:

When I saw the article earlier in the day, I jokingly texted my friend. "well I guess Cyberpunk is gonna be delayed again!".

Then later this was posted
"When we meet again in this format, Cyberpunk 2077 will have already been released," said CD Projekt RED CFO Piotr Nielubowicz in a video offering a recap of the company's 2020 fiscal year to date (via VG247). He adds that the studio has had to adapt amid the pandemic, with the team working remotely from home, but it's "coping".

After putting 70+ hours into Cyberpunk 2077, it was only natural that I finally started this game.

Only a few hours in but I'm enjoying it a whole lot. I'm only running it on a base PS4 but this game is gorgeous.

Witcher 3 is the only 50+ hour game I've played and beat twice. Bought it originally for PS4 and beat it a couple months ago again on the Switch. Just an absolutely fantastic game. The DLC is highly worth playing through too, especially Hearts of Stone which I thought had one of the most interesting storylines in a videogame ever. Blood and Wine is good, if not a little bit of a letdown after the incredible Heart of Stone, but does a great job of fully wrapping the game up.
