The Witcher 3

A few weeks ago The Witcher 3 has finally received mod support and fans of the game have released several mods which try to enhance the game in several different ways. Among the mods released recently for the CD Projekt RED role playing game is a nice lightning mod which tweaks the lightning to make the game look even better. The mod has unfortunately been released in a not optimal state due to a variety of issues that cannot be fixed properly without better tools but this doesn’t mean that work has been halted forever, as a new update for the Super Turbo Lightning Mod has been made available a few hours ago.

The Witcher 3 Super Turbo Ligthning Mod new update comes with slightly better AO, slightly darker nights and more. You can learn more about the mod and download it by going here.

Last week CD Projekt RED has revealed that The Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone expansion will be released in all regions and on all formats on October 13th. The expansion is also going to receive a retail release featuring a download code for the expansion and the Monsters and Scoiat’el Gwent decks. Earlier this week it’s been confirmed that the Gwent decks purchased through the Redeem Gwent website are going to be in English, while those included in the retail version will be localized.

Not much is currently known about the Hearts of Stone plot but some details have emerged online recently. According to the leaked dialogue extracted from the latest patch, Geralt may suffer permanent consequences during the events of the expansion, as he asks Triss, Yennefer and Ciri to remove a mark on his body, a mark they are not powerful enough to remove.

The Witcher 3 is now available in all regions on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone expansion will be released on October 13th on all formats. We will keep you updated on the expansion and upcoming new patch as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news on CD Projekt RED’s excellent role-playing game.

Sony Has a “Monopoly” on the High-End Japanese Gaming Market, According to a US Senator

The never-ending saga surrounding Microsoft’s proposed $69 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard has a new participant.  Today, Senator Maria Cantwell, a Democrat from the state of Washington, said some things about the subject that were hard to understand.

The senator, whose remarks were reported on by ResetEra, spoke at a Senate finance committee hearing on “the president’s 2023 Trade Policy Plan,” which we are sure was quite interesting.

Senator Cantwell said that she had been told that Sony “controls a monopoly of 98% of the high-end game market” despite the fact that “Japan’s government has allowed Sony to engage in blatant anti-competitive conduct through exclusive deals and payments to game publishers, establishing games that are among the most popular in Japan.”

This 98% statistic is highly deceptive because it ignores PC, Nintendo, and mobile games and instead refers to Sony’s adoption rate over Microsoft in Sony’s native country of Japan, a fact that shouldn’t surprise anyone who is even somewhat familiar with the video game business.

What can we do to rectify these problems and create a level playing field, she said of US Trade Representative Katherine Tai after charging Japan’s Federal Trade Commission with improperly failing to look into this purported “exclusionary conduct”?

It is absurd to claim that Sony has a monopoly on the Japanese video game market, as Luke Plunkett of Kotaku correctly points out, “because Sony doesn’t even have a 98% share of the market for the God of War series, a title they own, as Steam is getting 30% of every sale on PC.”

It goes without saying that we can’t expect elected officials to be experts in every field, but this is a visible step at a time when the ongoing attempt to buy the company is at a very important point.

Is it significant that Microsoft, along with Nintendo, maintains its headquarters in Redmond, Washington—Senator Cantwell’s district—or that Microsoft has given Cantwell more than $500,000 over the past two decades?  Let us leave that up to you.

Pizza Possum is an arcade action game in which you, a possum, attempt to consume as much trash as you can without being discovered.  It is a web-based sequel to the anarchy simulator Untitled Goose Game.It will eventually be available on the PS5.

We couldn’t help but notice that the possum in the title doesn’t look like the cute Australian possum that comes out at night to visit people.On the other hand, it looks like the horrible North American opossums are the ones that will attack trash cans and cause general chaos.Even though we think the second choice was better in terms of theme, we prefer the first one and are happy to explain why.

Your thoughts on Pizza Possum?  Does it possess the necessary mass appeal to successfully skitter along the back fenceline while setting the dog off in the process?
