This is a great example of how a decade of hype/sales marketing can make even a mediocre game one of the biggest launches of one of the last few years. They managed to leverage all their Witcher 3 goodwill behind a marketing plan that would otherwise be dismissed as too good to be true and effectively created The… Read more
Oh man, I must have blocked out DA:I running like warm shit on my OG console, but suddenly I’m remembering that being the last straw between me and Bioware.
CDPR has, effectively, struck out. They’ll stay in the game, and I hope they No Man’s Sky the shit out of their game, because the writers deserve the airtime.

I vote this as the most sensibly titled article on Jezebel in the last 4ish years.
I won’t live in a country where abortion is illegal. I’m Salvadoran, and I’ve seen what happens when all abortion is illegal. Girls as young as you can imagine, raped, incest made to give birth.
