"I think that he's totally wrong, and that he's an arrogant motherf*cker," - Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of the Metro series

I think that really says everything about Sapkowski really. He's just a bitter old man that regrets a decision he made years ago and sees a chance within Polish law that he can take it all back.

CD Project Red however seem very confident that the grounds are baseless and if anything they'll probably give Sapkowski the bare minimum of what he's supposedly "owed" even though his books have GREATLY benefited from their success and he's probably richer and more well known now then he was before CDPR decided to even make the first Witcher game.

Also I'd like to share a reddit post I found trying to find that quote from Dmitry.

Sapkowski is being a dick, again

Apparently Sapkowski was invited to a Polish (Anime?) Convention known as PolCon, back in 2016. He had a panel there where he would talk about the books as well as the Games and he expressed heavily how much he doesn't like the games.

"The game gave me a lot of shit and stench... Because foreign publishers started to use game arts on the covers. So, some people discarded the books, saying it's not new, it's game-related. As in the book written for a game, which - especially in fantasy - we have a lot of. I had to fight a tough battle to prove, who was first."

After a question asking if the games were beneficial for him: "50/50. Obviously a little bit, because, let's be honest, there was some kind of a target, which became interested in the books after they played the games. Let's say I agree that there was a group of people like that. Except, if I start to compare it it the target that I've lost because of people who said "I'm not going to read a book about a game", I think it's going to be 50/50."

After a question about sequel to the Witcher saga, he said it's concievable, but he'd discard the games entirely, because "What do I care?" Then, when the moderator said "you don't know anything about them anyway", he said: "Exactly, I don't know. But I can ask. I know a few people who played the game, but it's not a lot, because I usually associate with intelligent people."

arrogant motherf*cker indeed.

City is pretty great, Spider-Man is like Arkham City.

and That's not a bad thing, it's not a bad thing at all.

sounds like people want their games to be 60fps then a good solid 30.

The game on Switch has a MUCH lower player base then the PS4 version for sure, but I can't help, but feel like this version of the game feels way more refined then the Beta.

I think the Switch version will be a great version to lab while the PS4 version will be the one for you to play with people.

With that said I can see myself playing FighterZ more on Switch then I have been on PS4.

TL;DR : WE'RE MAKING ASSASSIN'S CREED ODYSSEY PLAYABLE ON YOUR GOOGLE CHROME TABLET USING YOUR GARBAGE 25MBPS INTERNET!

The Video Game's industry knows NO BOUNDS in it's schemey ways of trying to take your money and give you nothing in return.

Google has now officially decided it's going to try to make Onlive a reality once again. Need I remind you that Onlive was an Online Service much like Spotify or Netflix, but for Video Games. Now your Crappy Laptop that couldn't run Darksiders because it has a crappy on board graphics card can finally run the game as if it was on a computer capable of running it. AMAZING RIGHT? WONDERFUL!...except when your Internet cuts off and you can't access the game anymore! Also the quality was horrible, imagine trying to play something like PUBG or Overwatch using a Streaming service where not only would the latency alone would make you want to eat your brain out, but the video quality will blur. Yeah the video quality, you ever see a Twitch Stream or a Youtube video with a low bit rate? IT AIN'T PRETTY!

Video Games are not the same as Movies or Music. Each song in spotfy is probably a few megabytes in size, if we were to compare that to Final Fantasy XV which requires 100gbs in hard drive space on your computer you'd be listening to the Entire Kingdom Hearts Soundtrack about 354 times in it's entirety, which is 26,904 songs. And since this is the Kingdom Hearts Soundtrack that Soundtrack takes about 2 hrs and 27 mins to finish from song 1 to song 76. Which would mean 26,904 songs in this scenario would probably take you about 448 hours give or take to finish. Which is probably the equivalent of 18 days. So for a video game streaming service about 1 day's worth of streaming is the equivalent of 18 days for music.

Typing this out I realize that's probably not how it works, but I think there's some credence to it. I'll have a hard time figuring out if both Video Games and Music have the same size time to stream, but I have a feeling that just like how Netflix boned a lot of Internet bills in the past that Video Game Streaming will likely hurt people with slow internet. Not to mention if these games that are getting streamed rely on good fast connections to get good. Games like Overwatch, Starcraft, and Tekken 7 all rely on good reliable connections and are highly competitive, so making these games available for streaming gives an advantage to those who live closer to the servers and have good internet. It will be impossible for those who live further away and have no access to good internet to be able to even get good at the game let alone enjoy it.

I'm rambling on and didn't even make mention that Streaming services also make it impossible for Game preservation to even be a thing. Remember Scott Pilgrim vs the World? Yeah That game was awesome, too bad no one can buy it now thanks to Ubisoft and Universal owning the rights and Anamanguchi having made the soundtrack. Thanks to this licensing hell, the Game was delisted back in 2014 (4 years after release). Only those who downloaded the game when available have access to it and can spread the word on why this game was so amazing, but imagine if this game wasn't just delisted from store fronts, but was a streamed only game? The Delisting wouldn't just mean no one could buy the game, a delisting from a streaming service means NO ONE CAN PLAY the game.

For years I keep seeing people cry how there "Needs to be a Netflix for Video Games." and all I can see why there SHOULDN'T be a "Netflix for Video Games."

This post sucks, but I just wanted to bring to your attention about Google's video game streaming service and why you really shouldn't support it.

@DragonfireXZ95: ah my memory may just be faulty, I just remember when the 900s and 1080s came out a lot of AMD card users were getting burnt because suddenly their cards weren't up to snuff anymore (which changed later on, but that was the time man).

Man, correct me if I'm wrong, but a lot of issues from that game really came from people not owning Nvidia cards.
