I bought this game for Xbox One, then re-bought it for PC, and now there's a very good chance I'll be rebuying it for PS5. :grund:

I got it for free when I bought a GTX 970. These days it's almost hard to imagine they would give you brand new triple-A games just for buying a sensibly-priced GPU, so I guess those extras aren't coming back any time soon. The RTX 3070 came with bupkis and cost three times as much.

It's about what I expected. I'd rather they move ahead on new games than be putting too many resources into adding content for a game that was released 7 years ago and already has more content than most players will ever complete.

Unless something has changed, both the game and the show have a license to use book content, but neither has a license to use the other's content. "Inspired by the portrayal" is about as close as they can get (just like the show was pretty clearly inspired by the game.)

Besides, they're each using the characters in different ways. I doubt either one wants to cross the canon.

Ahh, good points. I hadn't considered that they couldn't.

AMD is doing a promo until the end of the month where you get The Callisto Protocol and Dead Island 2 with a Radeon purchase

nGreedia of course is doing nothing at all.

I did just see this:
CD Projekt Red has been, as you can imagine, very careful about spoiling the new quest coming to The Witcher 3 with this update. This quest, which is tied to the Netflix show, is brand-new and tantalising to think about. But whatever it is, we’ll be able to take it on with new equipment, as well as an alternate costume for Dandelion. Nice!

Would be nice to see this version's Dandelion play Toss a Coin to the Witcher.
