The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 has received plenty of patches in the past weeks addressing several issues plaguing the game on all formats. While most major issues have been fixed, there are still some that require fixing like the Steam achievements issues, the Skellige Most Wanted quest issue which prevents players from completing it and a few more. One of these issues is finally getting fixed today.

Earlier today CD Projekt RED Community Manager Marcin Momot has confirmed that the Steam achievements hotfix is going to be made available later today. This fix should finally allow players playing the Steam version of the game to obtain achievements correctly. There are still no news on the Skellige Most Wanted hotfix that’s been revealed a few days ago, but we will surely hear more about the matter soon.

Yesterday it has been revealed that the Triss romance tweaks will be introduced to the game with the next patch. These tweaks will make the Triss romance option more rewarding, as it’s currently somewhat underwhelming, especially when compared to the Yennefer romance option. We will let you know more about the next patch as soon as more comes in on it.

The first The Witcher 3 expansion will be released next month on all formats. The Hearts of Stone expansion will be set in Oxenfurt and it will be around 10 hours long. Yesterday, it was also confirmed that it will be possible to play the expansion in New Game Plus Mode. The second expansion, Wine and Blood, will be released next year.

The Witcher 3 is now available in all regions on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We will keep you updated on the game’s future patches and the two expansions as soon as possible, so stay tuned for all the latest news on the excellent role playing game by CD Projekt RED.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
