The Witcher author demands $16 million “additional payment” from CD Projekt Red

The author of The Witcher novels has delivered a legal demand for payment to game developers CD Projekt Red, amounting to 60 million Polish Zloty (approximately £12.4 million or $16 million). Andrzej Sapkowski is the author of the Wiedźmin series of fantasy books, later translated as The Witcher in English. He made a deal with CD Projekt in the early 2000s that would allow them…

The allure of Viking fantasies, and the games that cherry-pick them

The Vikings have long ago invaded the coasts of pop culture on their dragon-headed longships and carved out their own Danelaw in the realm of video games. In recent years, they’ve grown even bolder, taking over most genres from RTS to RPG, classic point and click adventure to action, with an utter disregard towards distinctions between AAA and indie. They’ve settled in Hellblade and Frostrune,…

Steam Charts: Perfectly Normal Edition

Welcome to my nightmares. As chronicled last week, all human progress is wiped out by a Steam Sale. Where once we were a species that revelled in new, interesting ideas, pursuing our dreams, we are once more wedged neck-deep in the past, doomed to buy the same £40 five-year-old games until we rot and coagulate into a molten horror. Welcome to the Steam Charts!

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Steam Charts: Stale Of The Century Edition

I have reached a conclusion. Everything that's bad is the fault of Steam sales. Two weeks ago these charts had reached a place of being a fertile ground of interesting new games and discounted classics. Today, they're back to being mostly a miserably predictable list of games that even the undiscovered tribes of Papua New Guinea have on their Steam accounts.

Soundbyte: Why is it so hard to start a union in the games industry?

Welcome to Soundbyte, an audio mini-series that stimulates your ears and explores topics in the games industry. In our first episode, Pixel Picketers, we're talking about unionisation in the games industry, what some folks are doing to make it happen, and the challenges they face. Let's start by speaking to Doug Cockle, who plays Geralt in The Witcher among other roles, about his negative experiences in…

Steam Charts: the past returns to life in summer sale

Hallo! Me again, filling in (slightly late) while John is handcuffed to a steering wheel for other duties. The Steam Charts were all shook up (mm mm mmh!) last week by the launch of Steam's summer sale, including propelling a lump of hardware into the top ten for the first time in ages. A number of older games have rocketed back too, boosted by sale…

No, The Witcher 3’s Ciri won’t be appearing in Cyberpunk 2077

A Witcher 3 Easter Egg that players believe references the world of Cyberpunk 2077 has, several years later, started to become a bit of a headache for the latter’s game director, Adam Badowski. It turns out that a lot of people are hoping to bump into Ciri as they explore the futuristic streets of Night City, but Badowski is putting his foot down. “I am…

Still dreaming of that Witcher/Cyberpunk 2077 crossover

Oh sure now CD Projekt Red are blabbing about Cyberpunk 2077 all over, blasting that rad trailer and showing a behind-closed-doors demo full of drugs, guns, and bums, but for a long time we clung to scraps. One of the more interesting was a story in The Witcher 3 from our magical daughter figure Ciri, which sounded like a nod to Cyberpunk. On her journey…

CD Projekt Red’s new studio helping on Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red, the makers of those wonderful Witcher games, today announced they have a new studio elsewhere in Poland to "bolster development" of Cyberpunk 2077. No, this announcement contains no new information on Cyberpunk - but aren't you glad to hear Red have more people helping? I can't think of many upcoming games I'm more jazzed for. Anyway! CD Projekt Red Wrocław, named after…

See Geralt cut into Soul Calibur VI

As rumoured and expected, Geralt of Rivia will indeed cross over into Soul Calibur VI. Everyone's seemingly known for ages that the monster-hunting hero The Witcher would appear in the upcoming fighting game sequel, but now it's official. One of my main interests in life is hearing Geralt talk in a weary voice so you betcha I'm up for throwing him through a portal into…

Soon, Voldo and Geralt will meet outside my dreams

CD Projekt Red don't have to do much to capture the internet's attention. Remember when they beeped? That was a good day. Today is also a good day. No beeps or boops or any other sound effects have emerged from the witchy cyberpunkers, but a new chronicle of Geralt's adventures has appeared on the official Witcher twitter feed. "Kaer Morhen’s old stones have witnessed many…

Geralt may appear in Soul Calibur VI but here are the characters we really want

This is Brendan, broadcasting live from rumour world, where everything is made of a nebulous candy floss-like substance. The locals call it “hope.” Amid this sticky cloud, a figure has formed. It’s Geralt of Rivia, hero of popular Gwent spin-off, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The monster-hunting swordsman will “make an appearance” in another game later this year, according to CD Projekt Red community lead…

Cyberpunk 2077 beeps back to life, may yet boop, whirr

As RPS's token cyberpunk, required by contract to wear at least two leather jackets and sing Billy Idol while jamming with the console cowboys in cyberspace, it falls to me to tell you today's big Cyberpunk 2077 news: it beeped. Today the game's official Twitter account broke a four-year silence to blast *beep*. That's all. But oh, I'm excited to see signs that it might…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Feature: Update Night

Has Gwent been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they've been changed for better or worse. I should’ve been out killing griffins, goblins, and other gribblies, but for much of my Witcher 3 save file, it was Gwent that had its claws in me. It says something about me, I guess, that I preferred to stay in the pub…
