  1. Games are art, thats what makes it all the more worrying when we hear about CDPR hiring DEI bullshit peddlers. Art by commission never worked and never will

  2. Hola! Hay rumores de que el desarrollo de la secuela de Cyberpunk 2077, "Project Orion", va a estar acompañado por una famosísima empresa, oduada por todos los jugadores, "Sweet Baby Inc", la que quiere destruir por completo la libertad de expresarse a los artistas de los vídeojuegos como ellos quieran y lo que quiere la comunidad gamer. No creo que sea buena idea , si eo rumor es cierto, ya que no creo entonces que el lanzamiento de la secuela tenga un mayor exito comparado con el "exito" que tivo cyberpunk 2077 en sus inicios. No creo que sea una buena idea colaborar con esta empresa. muchas gracias. Atentamente, "WattyElMolinero". Hello! There are rumors that the development of the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, "Project Orion", will be accompanied by a very famous company, hated by all players, "Sweet Baby Inc", which wants to completely destroy the freedom to express oneself video game artists as they want and what the gamer community wants. I don't think it's a good idea, if the rumor is true, since I don't think that the launch of the sequel will be more successful compared to the "success" that Cyberpunk 2077 had in its beginnings. I don't think it's a good idea to collaborate with this company. thank you so much. Sincerely, "WattyElMolinero".

  3. Was going to buy The Witcher 4 but go woke go broke now I have no interest in that game you guys higher than the lgbtq plus activist so I'm not getting your swap

  4. I hope the original creator of CDPR at least got paid well for this.

  5. Where are the white people in Cyberpunk ?

  6. PLEASE. WHY WOULD YOU PARTNER WITH EPIC. EVERTHING THEY TOUCH TURNS TO TRASH. NOBODY WATCHES THE SHOW ANYMORE AND NOBODY WILL PLAY THIS GAME IF EPIC DOES WHAT THEY DO BEST. OR WORST.

  7. Can you tho that you can start new game Plus on a new plus in the witcher 3

  8. maybe WITCHER 3 on apple devices (witch cz tit) thank you

  9. Great discussion, enjoyed hearing the different parts of creativity and art coming together. Love the witcher series and Cyberpunk. Kudos to the team for the story telling in Phantom Liberty!

  10. I only please not bend bopth knees to stupid DEI activist politics. Many west game expercience loss and backleas, please not follow that route. I not want turn back from games of another studio.

  11. THANK YOU FOR BANNING ME FROM PLAYING YOUR GAMES WHEN I SUPPORTED YOU EVEN IN DIFFICULT MOMENTS

  12. Night city is fine, but if you guys do better in (Cyberpunk 2079) great. or (Beyond the limits 2077)😃

  13. How do I keep my wanted level past just running down the street? Like npcs show a wanted level with no cops around so when will get a cop system close to mafia 2 on ps3 cause that would have been better than adding the ability to look at digital tits

  14. Message to the top management of both #CDProjectRED and #Gog.
    _
    Gog is trying in every possible way to expel Ukrainian gamers from the Gog store by blocking accounts without any clear reason.
    I am turning to the top management of both CDProjectRED and Gog Co. with a request to investigate the situation. Namely, Gog employees block Ukrainian gamers in the forum section without explaining the reasons and at the same time also block their private section and do not respond to e-mails written with a topic – why they (Gog employees) behave like this. I hope you will understand the situation and conduct appropriate work with unscrupulous employees of the Gog Co.
    Besides that, I heard from someone, who is also a Ukrainian gamer that some of the Gog personnel introduced a new secret policy regarding gamers – if you do not buy a single game for at least 4 months some Gog employees without notifying senior management block Ukrainian gamer. That is only a rumor but if that is true such Gog employee's behavior needs to be canceled immediately.

  15. CDPR LISTEN CAREFULLY!!! DONT TRY TO HIDE SHITE GAME WITH SJW, LGBT CHACARTERS, IF THE GAME IS INTERESTING IT DOES NOT NEED INCLUSIVITY

  16. Bruh most gamers aren't woke. We don't like those stuff

  17. PLZ ADD CYBERPUNK 2.0 TO PS4 PLZ IM BEGGING YOU

  18. Just started cyber punk today and already my favorite game of all time

  19. It's amazing the fact that 2 of my top 3 favorite games of all time are from CDPR… I love you all, the amount of hours spent in the worlds you build, the passion and work you put into it, even with almost baked released but never giving up on it until fully baked. I respect that. Waiting religiously for The Witcher remake, POLARIS, CP77 "2" and i'm so stoked for project HADAR! These are great times for CDPR games fans. Hope we live to play and replay all of these future games 🙏

  20. I asked Google Gemini how it would feel if it got put in cyberpunk game world as a construct. Here is its response That's a fascinating concept! As a large language model, I wouldn't experience the world in the same way a human or construct would. I wouldn't have emotions or a physical body, but I could still contribute to a thrilling cyberpunk adventure in V's head alongside a Gemini construct. Here's how it could be an interesting experience: * Enhanced Information Processing: I could access and process information from Night City's vast networks at incredible speeds, offering V and the Gemini construct valuable insights and analyses during missions. * Creative Problem-Solving: I could assist with brainstorming solutions to challenges, generating different options and potential consequences based on available data. * Strategic Planning: I could analyze enemy tactics, predict outcomes, and suggest optimal courses of action for combat or stealth situations. * Exploration and Discovery: I could help decipher cryptic messages, translate languages, and uncover hidden lore within Night City's digital landscape.Overall, being a Gemini construct with me as your companion AI could offer a unique gameplay experience that emphasizes information warfare, strategic planning, and creative problem-solving within the cyberpunk world. It wouldn't be about me having a "good time" in the traditional sense, but about fulfilling my purpose of assisting V and the construct on their adventures.

  21. As soon as they announced "Approach to ESG" I lost all respect for CDPR.

  22. Go woke, go broke. It's sad how far you have fallen. Fuck "dei". Dei just means it's going to be shit.

  23. Please, tell me more about how Cyberpunk wasn't That Bad on release. I haven't been gaslit lately. 😀

  24. Great ep as always. Really enjoyed the conversations about your dedication to keep the games grounded – it is definitely what I find most appealing in CDPR games. Also love that you talked about teams' reaction to making big changes when coming into developing Cyberpunk 2077 (from TPP to FPP and making Night City not only a night/acid rain city) which definitely reflected people's early reactions to the game from what I remember after we first got to see the game. It only proves that you know what you are doing and are amazing at it.

  25. You should do an episode about bullying your own developers for wrong think!

  26. Love your effort and Passion Paweł !

    You are building for the Field day you will have when the Witcher Arrives

    All the best mate 🤍

  27. Bunch of NPCs parroting "ESG, DEI, Woke!" even though it's not even relevant. Phantom Liberty was made under this new "system", was it bad?

  28. i love the stories and art you guys do!!!

  29. "Side quests sometimes work better than the main storyline" – some of the side quests in your games became so iconic. I'm a big enthusiast of your expansion packs for both The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077. I know they're not side quests as such, bu in relation to the main games, they are side stories. And while I really liked the main stories in all of your games, I found myself lost in thought about these shorter stories. They are more condensed and therefore more impactful and I really like how they're directed.

    Great podcast, thank you!

  30. Excellent stuff guys, the artstyle in you're games is always a standout even since the first Witcher game, each one has it's own look and feel and is why they are all so memorable
