The Witcher 3 New ModKit Update To Come With Next Patch, More Horse Breeds Might Come In The Future

The Witcher 3

A few months ago The Witcher 3, the latest entry of the role-playing game series developed by CD Projekt RED, has received an official modkit which allows players to alter several aspects of the game. If you’re a modder and you’re not satisfied with the current The Witcher 3 Modkit, you will be happy to know that an update for it is going to be released in the future.

A few hours ago CD Projekt RED community manager Marcin Momot has revealed on The Witcher Official Forums that a ModKit update is going to be released together with the next PC patch. We have no idea when precisely it will be released, but we are definitely going to hear more about the update’s changelist soon.

“Yes. The modkit update should be out with the next PC patch. I’ll try to post the changelist soon since it’s been updated since the last time.”

With The Witcher 3’s first expansion called Hearts of Stone now out, the team is working on the next expansion, Blood and Wine. Not much is known about the expansion, other than it will be set in Toussaint, a duchy within Nilfgaard that The Witcher book readers already know well. It’s been recently revealed that there’s the chance that new horse breeds might be included, something that should make the new area feel even more different than Velen and the Skellige Islands.

Right before Hearts of Stone hit the game on all formats, The Witcher 3 received patch 1.10 which addressed some issues and added new features. The patch was also supposed to include an indicator for the Card Collector quest which showed how many cards are missing to complete the quest and get the related achievement. Marcin Momot confirmed a few days ago that the indicator will be implemented as soon as possible.

The Witcher 3 is now available in all regions on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game’s first expansion, Hearts of Stone, is also available for purchase right now on all formats.

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?
