The long awaited (mainly by me, I don't know that we have many, if any, other Linux gamers here) Wasteland 3 Linux version has arrived. Next time it's discounted I will scoop it up immediately.

The biggest effect Cyberpunk had:

It allowed LadyCrimson to pass Guard Dog on the Obsidian forum Leaderboard by a margin of 6 points.

🙄 I had enough of crossover stuff during FFXV, I am not impressed with "forced" 35GB updates for such.   ... altho, apparently Denuvo was removed as well, which should make some happy.

Conan Exiles is getting some big changed to their expansion: https://www.conanexiles.com/blog/isle-of-siptah-producer-letter/

I'm impressed. Funcom is pretty hit or miss on some stuff, but they definitely have shown a ton of commitment to Conan Exiles and really seem to take player feedback into account. The addition of NPC factions and camps makes me very happy. The Isle of Siptah is beautiful and I've enjoyed exploring it lately. The weather effects are extremely well done. It will really improve the experience to have some more NPC's around to tangle with.

Regardless, it is pretty crazy how this game has gone from one I was pretty meh about at release to possibly my favorite game of all time. It is definitely ahead of all of the RPG's and MMO's I've played.

I still haven't wrapped up the original map yet. I keep getting distracted experimenting with building in Conan Exiles.

Honestly I haven't either. I mean, I have been to a lot of places, but it is a pretty big map. I havent really explored the snowy north stuff much. 

Dangit, now I am tempted to go back. 😝

Cyberpunk Game Maker Faces Hostile Staff After Failed Launch - Bloomberg

Rebellion is in the air at Polish video game publisher CD Projekt SA after the company’s highly anticipated, and thrice-delayed, latest title was released to scathing reviews about glitches.

Frustrated and angry staff fired questions at the board during an internal video meeting Thursday that opened with management apologizing for Cyberpunk 2077’s disastrous launch, according to two people who were present. It was a fitting atmosphere for a company whose slogan, plastered on posters all around its Warsaw office, is “We are rebels.”
Developers asked blunt questions about the company’s reputation, the game’s unrealistic deadlines and the relentless overtime in the months and years leading up to the game’s Dec. 10 release.

The meeting took place before Sony Corp.’s shocking announcement that it was pulling Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store and will offer full refunds to any customer who requests one. During the staff meeting, CD Projekt’s directors said they had come to an arrangement with Sony but didn’t offer specifics. In a Twitter post on Friday, the company said that “following our discussion with PlayStation, a decision was made to temporarily suspend digital distribution” of the game.

A CD Projekt spokeswoman said the company wouldn’t comment on internal meeting discussions.

For some people is their reputation worth more than money. They usually do not work for AAA publishers though ;)

People still work at Bethesda and EA right ? 😛

Yeah people work for a lot of different companies, which have even worse reputation than these two 😛 Does not negate the notion that some people value their reputation little bit higher than average human being 😛

For the rank workers though, would their reputation really be hurt by this ?

Some yes some not. I, for example, if I would be hiring, and would have to choose from two same quality people, I would definitely look at the quality of their previous employers as well *shrugs*

I can't imagine anyone being happy for C77 launch. You have been crunched to rush the project, while management lied about games state and progress. A big chunk of W3 goodwill is being burned, and without a doubt CDPR reputation isn't as it was a month ago. It's a shame.

I guess, a lot of what makes their employer is out of their hands though.

The choosing of who is their employer, is mostly in their hand though. Some people quit their job on free will, if their employer does not meet their standards, some do not care, and yes, some are not fortunate enough to be able to make that choice *shrugs*

Okay, odd hiring practice to me to hold that against a worker especially as if they're interviewing with you odds are they are trying to leave anyway.

Do you think these heroes also returned their bonuses so as not to profit off ill gotten gains? ;) 

As I mentioned before, I was not talking about people in AAA industry 😉
