Skellige side quests constitute like a quarter of the game. My advice would be to go back before you progress any further, otherwise you're opting out a huge chunk of the game and will be pretty boring to go back to if you advance past the level bracket. There's a really kino political quest line where you decide who the new Skellige Jarl will be.

Didn't he make a one time business deal because he never believed the games would make any money?

Typical polaks. Make shitty business decisions then cry foul when things don't turn out the way they wanted them to.

The marketing and timing for this is abysmal. Release date is a week before RD2 and besides the wacky trailer and a handful of beta clips I've barely seen much about this game. It's hardly a surprise that sales are down.

It's looking like another Hardline at this rate unless they pull something out of the bag at the last minute tbh.

I was hoping for a more neo noir aesthetic. Maybe that's just the Blade Runner fan in me.

Honestly looks more like Dredd rather than actual Cyberpunk.
Isn't Dredd still cyberpunk?
I'd say it's more of a hybrid of dystopia interlaced with post apocalyptic punk. There's a very specific tone to cyberpunk which I appreciate CDPR for attempting to emulate, but I don't think quite sticks the landing.

Hooray for censorship!
This guy is calling parents who lost their toddlers in a school shooting "actors". Is this really the hill you want to die on?
IDGAF. Nobody, not even ANTIFA, deserves to be deplatformed.
hahaha fucking liar
I don't even like Alex Jones. Doesn't mean I think he should be banned from every platform. Not going to bother arguing with you though.
Because you'll lose. Because you and I both know you'd be happy if The Young Turks got banned from YouTube. And that you'd come up with some bullshit alt right "logic" to try and rationalize it.
Except I wouldn't because you don't know fucking shit. I'm a Libertarian, not Alt-Right. I'm not even a fucking White Identitarian. Nobody deserves to be deplatformed. Not TYT, not InfoWars, not Varg, not Buzzfeed, not anybody. Fuck off.
Do you think action should be taken to rectify this then?
YouTube (And all other big tech sites for that matter) should be regulated as utilities and thus beholden to the US Constitution because Google is a US based firm and is currently the main platform for people to air their political grievances. Nobody should be kicked off unless they are doing something explicitly illegal.
So you're a libertarian, which is the political affiliation that's all about laissez-faire capitalism, minimal government and maximum economic freedom at its very core, that supports the extensive regulation of and government involvement in "all big tech sites"? That seems a bit contradictory. It also makes me wonder about the practical feasibility of any of that. The thing about tech companies offering services is that they can pretty easily change where they're located. No big tech company would want to be regulated and treated as a public utility so they'd simply move their headquarters to, say, Europe where existing hate speech laws would just give them more of a reason to continue removing this kind of content.
Oligarchy is hardly capitalism as hardly any competition is actually taking place. There is (currently) no competition in regards to social media because big tech's competitors are not yet big enough to be viable. I support and endorse them when I can, but they aren't at the point where they can realistically compete yet. Given how often big tech firms collude with one another I'd say they're probably violating some anti-trust laws anyway. Big tech is so big that if you get kicked off, then you effectively do not have the right exercise your freedom of speech. I'd love if we could solve the issue of online censorship through pure capitalism, but I fear that YouTube in particular has become too big for its own good and the government has to step in and explicitly make it beholden to the US Constitution.
None of this reads like you actually know what you're talking about.

He got removed from a handful of corporate social media sites because he's a sperg that peddles conspiratorial nonsense and insults victims of mass murders.

Funny how it's "business autonomy" when it suits /pol/acks, but censorship when it doesn't. Decide which it is.
"M-MUH POL!"
Fuck off and fuck you. Don't you dare fucking assume shit about me. You don't know goddamn shit. I stopped giving a shit about that dumpster fire of a board ages ago. I don't believe in censorship of any kind and never have. I never stopped being Libertarian just because I ironically spouted /pol/ memes at one point in time. I don't buy into the white supremacist autism and never truly have because it just leads to the same authoritarian collectivist bullshit that the far left is so fond of.
If you're libertarian then surely you should be happy about businesses exercising their right to expel someone they don't want on their platform.

You can't (presumably) champion the free market then turn around and cry censorship when said free market inconveniences you.

Like I said, choose your side of the fence and stick to it.

Yeah but chavs are a dying breed. Say what you will about their cunty attitude but at least they kept the UK in check. You have to be in a specific area to catch a glimpse of any nowadays.

Would watch, that looks pretty fun.

Daily reminder that 1998 American Godzilla design is still the best looking one ever though, despite of how much of a non-canonical pushover it was. Fat godzilla looks meh at best.

In all seriousness if you think that design is better than Japanese/monsterverse gojira you are an unadulterated brainlet.

I'm not going to doubt that intelligence agency's claim of manipulation in the election. But I really wish they did go into detail about how exactly they did "hack" it. Like, did they actually tap into the electronic ballets of states and manipulate the electronic votes? Or did they just post dank memes on Facebook?
This.

So far all we've got is a vague "Russians meddled with the election" answer.

Not repudiating the intelligence services but they haven't exactly been wholly transparent as to the extent of Russian interference.

It's frustrating to see how these things are covered in much of the (social) media. Same as with net neutrality and all things similar, the stuff that gets thrown around and the way people act over it almost makes you lose support for the good side. So much exaggerated and flawed narratives pushed by people who couldn't even explain you how basic copyright works, who don't have the faintest clue about the workings of EU legislation and who haven't even read the proposed text but have still somehow become overnight experts in European intellectual property law and are piling onto anyone who offers a more factual and nuanced POV than "THE INTERNET IS LITERALLY GOING TO END". It's tiresome to participate in these discussions when you see the hundredth bandwagoner get thousands of upvotes for saying there's no longer any fair use protections because he's legally illiterate and doesn't understand even the very basics of this debate.

This is why referenda are so stupid.
Yeah, god forbid the plebs have an opinion.
