CD Projekt RED Wants To “Change The Game Industry” & Do Things Differently

CD Projekt Red is one of the companies that gamers blindly trust because they’re very consumer friendly. From a lot of good free DLC, paid DLC that add more than 20 hours to the game, their DRM free stance and the fact that they take a lot of customer feedback has made them a lot of people’s favourite devs.

With Cyberpunk 2077 finally being showcased, many cannot wait to get their hands on the game and look forward to more news about the game. In the upcoming issue of EDGE Magazine, Cyberpunk 2077’s quest designer, Patrick Mills, talked about how the team is looking to shake up the game’s industry with the game and want to do it even with the challenges that come with it.

“One of the things about this company has always been we want to show the game industry how to do things,” Mills said. “We want to change the game industry. We want to say, ‘We can do things differently, we don’t have to do things that way.’ It’s in our motto: ‘We are rebels,’ right?”

While they certainly have done that with Witcher 3 with the gameplay and how intriguing each quest line is, he further states that they won’t shy away from political and societal topics for better storytelling.

“So when you’ve got other studios saying, ‘Oh, no no no, there’s nothing political here’, we say, ‘Yeah, there is.’ It’s not necessarily what you’re expecting, and we’re not going to talk about exactly what we’re going to say- it’s for you to decide when you play it. But Cyberpunk is relevant to today, extremely so. To pretend like it’s not? Come on. Mike [Pondsmith, Cyberpunk 2020 creator] wouldn’t let us. Mike would throw a fit if we tried to say, ‘This is just about cool hairstyles and cool guns, that’s all.’”

Cyberpunk has always been a genre that has questioned society so how they manage to incorporate all this given the current political and social climate is yet to be seen, especially after the backlash they received due to a tweet of theirs which people called out as they felt it was transphobic in nature.

Here’s Why Intel CPU Prices Are Rapidly Going Up

Some of you who might be building a new PC under a certain budget might have been recommended an Intel CPU only to find out that its price has increased quite a bit. While the 8th Gen Coffee Lake CPUs were good for each budget range, that might not be the case anymore.

Here's Why Intel CPU Prices Are Rapidly Going Up

This increase in price is because of the shortage of the biggest components that go into making the 8th Gen CPUs, the 14nm nodes. Because of this, the 14nm chips have had massive production delays and shortages due to the which the Coffee Lake 14nm chips have risen in price due to the limited stock. While there were reports that Intel decided to outsource to TSMC to keep up with demands, they were quickly dismissed.

As seen from the image above, there’s a minimum 10% price bump on the Intel Core i-series CPUs with a huge hit to the non-K CPUs which makes them almost match the price of the K series CPU or in the case of the 8700, makes it even more expensive than the 8700k. This price increase is a worldwide thing and also affects the Indian prices for Intel CPUs. This shortage has also affected the production of Intel’s 9th gen CPUs which are also 14nm based so even if they do manage to release them at a reasonable price, chances are that stock will be very limited.

Some might question why AMD isn’t facing the same issues and it’s because they seem to have a good supply of both 14nm and 12nm chips from GlolbalFoundries until they switch to the 7nm node next year. However, as GlobalFoundries have recently abandoned the 7nm node to focus on the 14nm chips, AMD will most likely look to TSMC for the 7nm nodes and will end up competing with Nvidia, Apple, and Qualcomm for production there. In the short term though, it seems like AMD will have a good Q4 with minimal increases in CPU prices which means consumers will end up looking towards AMD for their CPU needs.

Being a PC enthusiast seems to be getting more and more painful to the wallet due to the shortage of NAND memory which have skyrocketed RAM and SSD prices, the mining craze which either had GPUs available for double their price or out of stock(which has thankfully returned to normal) and now, the CPU market is being affected. Is this a conspiracy by some secret cloud computing group? Is this a way of increasing prices of products for more profit? Who knows, all we know is that it isn’t a great time to build a new PC or even upgrade to new components in some cases.

Tokyo Game Show 2018 – The Best and The Biggest

Tokyo Game Show 2018 came to an end yesterday, and you know what that means. We have some awesome new announcements to distract us from the sad realities of real life. From PlayStation Classic (cause God knows we needed one) to another mind-boggling Death Stranding trailer, things sure do look promising. To save you the effort, we sat down and picked out the best and the biggest news TGS, which you can check out, right now. Here are our top announcements from the show.

1. Death Stranding

Is it just us or the game keeps getting more and more mysterious with each trailer?

GamingMonk यांनी वर पोस्ट केले सोमवार, २४ सप्टेंबर, २०१८

Is it just me or does Death Stranding keep getting more and more mysterious with each trailer? It seems like Hideo Kojima is hell-bent on making the fans go crazy with wild theories about the game. The latest trailer introduces a golden masked villain (not to be confused by Golden Face from Threat Level Midnight) and a humongous monster that, get this, springs to live from the golden mask. The highlight is that the character is voiced by Troy Baker, who, for those living under a rock, was the voice for Sam Drake in Uncharted 4. That’s another huge name added to the game’s already star-studded cast, alongside Mads Mikkelsen, Guillermo Del Toro and Norman Reedus. With such a high-profile cast, expectations for this game are surely riding high.

2. Devil May Cry 5

We were promised some Dante action at TGS, and boy did Capcom deliver on that front. The previous teaser had the fans itching for more, and the new trailer does all that and more. Not only do we see the infamous Dante hacking, slashing and shooting his way through the enemies, we also get a better look at some of the back story, along with a new playable character, V. Though there’s no gameplay footage for him yet, gotta admit, he looks kinda badass. Well, of course not as badass as Dante, but still.

3. Resident Evil 2

Can't wait to scream and crap our pants out!

Another gem of a trailer, courtesy of Capcom. We get a good look at Ada, who’s back with a slightly more different look, wearing sunglasses in the dark. Well, not dark but not bright either. Anyway, the game seems to be shaping up well, checking all the tick marks. Shooting zombies in the face? Check. Getting mauled by a zombie dog? Check. Making players crap their pants? Check.

4. PlayStation Classic

If you thought Nintendo was the only company cashing in on the good old days, think again. This year Sony announced the return of the PS1, or rather, a mini version that comes with 20 pre-loaded games. What these games are, however, remains a mystery, akin to the very nature of the game Death Stranding. Apart from that, it’s a fairly standard deal. It plugs in using the HDMI, you CANNOT use your old PS1 discs and you get two replica controllers. However, when Sony was once asked about backwards compatibility last year, they didn’t really have a lot of good stuff to say about it. And now, there’s a special console dedicated to old games.

5. Judge Eyes (Project Judge)

Coming from the makers of Yakuza, Project Judge takes place in modern day Tokyo, following a serial murder case. It is set in the same universe as Yakuza, but sadly, will not feature any characters from the latter. The studio says that even though the location and assets might be the same, the story and gameplay will be drastically different. But don’t worry, you’ll still get to see some crazy over-the-top action, as evidenced by the trailer. The game as of now is scheduled for a 2019 release.

6. PlayStation Vita (the demise of it, really)

Let’s take a moment of silence for the console that, at least in my opinion, can be considered as the middle child of the console world. And now, Sony is finally taking it off the life support. The company announced at TGS that they will cease production of the PS Vita in 2019. It was promising, with a sleek design and powerful specs, but sadly did not receive the attention it deserved.  With a mediocre line-up of games, it soon turned into an often ignored device that people would boot up for older PSP, PS1 and PS2 titles. And soon, it will be lost to the sands of time.

Dragon Quest XI for Switch titled Dragon Quest XI S

The Switch version of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be titled Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S, Square Enix announced during its Dragon Quest Paradise News Station event at Tokyo Game Show 2018.

According to Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii, among the meanings of the “S” in the title are “Switch,” “Special,” “Shaberu” (Speaking), and “Seiyuu” (Voice Actor).

While a release date was not announced, Horii said that it will still take a bit of time before the Switch version is released.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is available now for PlayStation 4 and PC. In Japan, a 3DS version is also available. The western release of Dragon Quest XI added new features, such as voice acting and dashing, which were not in the original Japanese release.

In response to Horii saying “Shaberu,” Dragon Quest XI producer Hokuto Okamoto added, “Even though shaberu (speaking) will be taking priority… I think there are some players who would prefer Dragon Quest without voices, and we’re keeping that in mind. Horii will be able to say more about that at some point…”
