    Just a heads up I for the uk, found the witcher 3 at £31.99 pre-order on amazon. Its a boxed copy so if yer haven't got prime add a few quid on, but its the cheapest I've found it for.

    Thank you for asking. I've been as good as dead.

    I've also been doing my Jess imitation-- I love everyone so much I ignore all of you.


    I fired Jess and GameSpot from my life over tthe past 5 months for wasting my time.

    "You're acting on faith that Jess loves us"

    You almost have a better job of seeing God that getting a response or any kind of appreciation from that woman. It's her loss. All the great friends who would love her to death just as she is and she ignores them and takes them all for granted.

    She better love her followers and her groupies. Her future as public figure giving presentations with video game footage depends on having followers watching her shows, now and in the future. A speaker is NOTHING without an audience. If no one watched her shows, she would have no job. I would take people for granted if I were her, or else I might have to work a real job (Jess, I wouldn't say it if I didn't have your best interest at heart).

    In five years, Jess might be off to bigger and better things and all the time you spent here will have been for naught unless Jess decides to prove me wrong. Or maybe in five years, all or most of Jess' followers will have abandoned her.

    What a great job many of these host have. Play video games, record it to a show and get paid. And all the video game addicts tune in and reinforce their addiction.


    You're a great guy suppaphly42. We all stick our foots in our mouths from time to time.

    Yes, I've caused major trouble for myself for it while I've done great for others too.


    Try 'The Daily Fix' on IGN for six weeks. You might like it. Naomi might grow on you. She's Canadian, from French Canada, but lives and works in the US. It might help you break your addiction to Jess. To break one habit, you need to substitute it with something else. We all can read the news for ourselves and do our own research. No one is dependent on watching a three minute show for video game news.


    Best wishes friend. Best wishes Jess. I still love you as person.

    Wow!! I really appreciate your warm welcome back messages.


    "You choose to believe Jess love us even though you've stick your foot in your mouth. . ."

    Wow! Did you say some nasty things about Jess?


    I only have breezed through the comments section for the past couple days for nostalgia. I see a many of the former regulars are gone--they must have gotten tired of their contributions being ignored and taken for granted.

    I haven't watched any shows since December--I click pause when the video starts to run--except the Lucy's 'Sad Goodbyes' In Two Minutes show a couple days ago.

    Yes, I experienced a lot of pain in my life and I'm experiencing more of it--lots of pain and suffering. Hopefully things will get better in a few days. Plus I'm studying many more IT skills to my bag of tricks. IT (information technology) is almost unlimited in the amount of skills there are to learn along with new technologies. In another life, I would be a Psychologist, Social Worker, or work in Marketing and have a couple of PhDs under my belt.

    I'm sorry to here about homelessgamer. SSRI's are primarily for treating depression, but I think they can also be helpful reducing compulsions and bonding (as in reducing your bond to Jess).

    @SaintsRowLA@suppaphly42: i made a sexual innuendo comment, about a comment someone else made, it was not well received. i also drink too much and my filter fcuks off sometime when i comment drunk :P what can i say we all have our vices :P

    now remember i once said its just a harmless infatuation. i think she is attractive mostly for her physical attributes because lord knows she won't talk to us. i can only assume nasty comments, used to rent too much space in her mind. so it was an all or nothing deal as to why she won't talk to any of us, well almost all of us some people have earned the right of acknowledgement.

    now you said you are experiencing pain in your life, when i asked whats up i was hoping for a more private massage response, as i don't really want my heartfelt concerns for your well being pasted for all to see. as people are d!cks and will pass judgement that i don't want to have to deal with. if, however, you are fine with that who am i to judge.

    so if you like Gamespot but have an issue with jess's lack of enthusiasm for your doting praise, then just don't watch the news anymore. there are a myriad of other articles to comment on. i, myself, find in fun to sift through controversial articles for enlighten people who share similar points of view too me and engage in intelligent debates with them. i like to play the devil advocate, just to see how much thought a person has put into there point of view and the thing i like the most, is showing someone the error of their ways.

    if i can explain to someone that they are functioning under a false pretense and get them to see that ( a hard thing to do i must say ) then i feel better as a person for my troubles. i don't know if you know "noah364" but he/she is one of the most enlightened people i have met on GS and i enjoy reading their points of view immensely

    anyway i hope i see you around as i believe you to be a good person and GS is better for having you despite any misgivings you have about jess and her lack of appreciation of her fan base

    Women are smart. Jess is smart. I'm sure she's using her sex appeal to her advantage. Everyone enjoys being admired.


    Jess, if nothing else, we will always love you for your beautiful boobs =] (I'm just being playful).

    Jess, thank you for being apart of our lives. You're a beautiful and lovable human being. We don't know if anything we say matters to you but we care about you anyway (truly). Nobody knows if all the time they spend supporting you here at GS and on Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere matter. It's important for people to have feedback so they know that their thoughtfulness and efforts matter. We love you anyway. It would be great if my life and everything I offered and have to offer made a difference to you. I really hope you have my very first post back in 2013 made a huge difference to you too.

    WoW losing about 3 million subscribers and all they do is dust it off? The excuse is that it's because of other regions increasing sub. prices. Let's face it, Activision and Blizzard are in complete denial if they think that's the only reason. Look, people stop playing MMOs for multiple reasons, but when it comes to WoW, my bet that most of these people who left it are tired of the same BS Blizzard always seems to throw at you. I have my reasons why I'm not into WoW so much as I used to be and it's mainly because I don't raid and constantly doing the dailies for my garrison are so boring. So, I went back to my first love Star Wars. The Old Republic has always had me compelled due to the fact that your character actually had a story and they were the most vital element to what was going on with the Empire and the Republic. Sorry, got a little off topic there. The point that I'm trying to get across is that if Activision/Blizzard want to throw dumb and irrelevant excuses to explain a major chunk of subscribers leaving, then they are showing strong signs of hubris which only leads to bad things.

    The Video Player you guys sport here is Buggy on the Chrome browser. It was fine for me on the Firefox browser, though.


    So who is to blame for this Buggy problem, hmmm?

The PC I usually browse GS on crashed the other day, I replaced it with another one yesterday, a nearly fresh install and could not get GS or GB videos to load, not even the video ad would load. I messed with it for awhile and gave up. Now today I am getting videos loading in Firefox but still not in Chrome.

    I think this is Blizzard's future with WoW as long as they keep taking forever between major updates. Gain several million subs, lose several million, rinse and repeat. I think Warlords of Draenor kicked butt so I'll be along for the ride. Though, I was one of those recent 3 million losses. I'll be back, as I suspect many others will be as well.

    GMG and GOG are having a pissing match with their wangs out for everyone to see. Isn't that classy? I say buy the game from whoever has the biggest member.

    Avatar image for ricku1967
    ricku1967

    @SingletreeAve: i wouldn't call it a "pissing match". GMG went behind CDPR back and bought codes from someone other than CDPR, effectively cutting out CDPR from getting any of the profits of their sales for their own game. CDPR has every right to be upset. they are the developer and the publisher of the game, and have the right to sell their game to whomever they choose. GMG on the other hand had no right to cut CDPR out from their own game. GOG will get my money.

    ricku1967

    @SpookyRonin@ricku1967@SingletreeAve: lol, if GMG is buying from someone else, they arent buying from CDPR. CDPR isnt getting any profits from GMG are they? no they arent. they are only getting the initial sales from "the unknown source" only. they didnt get the profits from the sale from the unknown source to GMG, so they wont get the profits from the sales on GMG

    SpookyRonin

    @ricku1967@SpookyRonin@ricku1967: Yes they are only getting the inital sales from the unknown source. Because why would they be entitled to any more ? It's still the same CD key, it is unused and is only being passed on further.

    @ricku1967@SpookyRonin@ricku1967: ALL cd-keys for the Witcher 3 came from CD Projekt-- Just because it is "unknown" to CD Projekt doesn't mean that it's illegitimate. One of CDPR's partners is selling keys to GMG, and THEY got their keys from CDPR.

    What it really comes down to is a protest against DRM. If you want the absolute cheapest price, don't worry about getting your copy from GMG. CDPR has been paid for these keys. If you want to support a platform that doesn't use DRM, go with GoG galaxy. Both are 'legitimate'.

    @SingletreeAve: lol nice analogy, but I don't quite see it as a pissing match. It just looks to me like CD Projekt Red is looking out for the best interest of their company and upcoming platform GOG, while GMG is doing whatever they can to promote their own platform even if it means selling at a loss. It seems perfectly reasonable for CD Projekt Red to be concerned when they see a company digitally selling the game they made without full disclosure of where the keys came from.

    I have no problem with either company or their recent statements. I'll be buying a physical copy of Witcher 3 to get the printed game map along with other bonuses plus a DRM free digital copy of the game. $60 for a high quality game is no problem for me and I'm happy to know some of that money is going to support the hard work this team has put in to making the best game they can :)

    @drumjod@SingletreeAve: What's funny is that $39.99 USD price isn't all that crazy. I have the retail boxed pre-ordered for $39.99 Canadian, from awhile back though before the game prices in Canada rose. That's from Best Buy too, not some weird shady store :).

    @drumjod@SingletreeAve: I fully agree with you. As soon as I heard that The Witcher III was available for Pre-order I went to my local Game stop and paid for it. That was late last year as well as for Dragon Age Inquisition. After all if it's a game for which itnterests me and I've liked previous games of the game that they have put out I don't mind paying the money. Besides I can imagine what it cost them to put a game like TW III out.

    Also you can just pronounce it "CD Project", its not necessary to attempt to read the name in Polish, given in English it does just read CD Project, as that's what they used to do originally, rip CDs. Oh the pretentiousness.

    @jetpil0t_01: They did not rip CDs, they were a legitimate software distributor (which is no small feat as piracy was rampant in Poland back then).

    @jetpil0t_01: I disagree. Everyone is free to pronounce the word in the way they're most comfortable. The pretentiousness usually happens when you say someone should pronounce it the way you prefer, which is what you've just done.

    There are some cases where a word is blatantly pronounced incorrectly (such as Bohemoth instead of Behemoth), but there is nothing pretentious about pronouncing a person or companies name the same way they pronounce it. It goes both ways imo. If someone is correcting people by saying it should be pronounced like the original Polish [say day proyekt red] I'd also say that can qualify as being pretentious.

    @drumjod@jetpil0t_01: Yeah it doesn't really matter how people pronounce it :).

    Although sometimes it's amusing to make fun of people who try too hard to pronounce foreign words correctly. An SNL skit from the 90s with Jimmy Smits (I had to look up his name but you'd probably recognize him) comes to mind, he's a new latino guy in the office and all his co-workers over-pronounce spanish words, like when they order lunch, it's pretty funny :).
