The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Recommended Specs - briefly
(hx) 02:28 PM EST - Jan,30 2015 - Post a comment / read (1)
There's no doubt that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of our most highly anticipated games of 2015. However, it appears that PC gamers will need a really beefy rig in order to enjoy 60fps with max settings. According to CD Projekt RED, the game's recommended specs are not for its Ultra settings, meaning that there will be very few gamers able to enjoy it at its Ultra settings. When asked about the game's recommended specs and whether gamers would be able to run the game at Ultra settings with such a system, CD Projekt RED told WitcherSite (fansite): that the official specs were for mid-high settings: "No, recommended specs are supposed to let you play on mid-high settings in 1920x1080(Full HD)"

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.
