Now that The Witcher 3 is out, CD Projekt RED is already getting asked about Cyberpunk 2077, the RPG they teased back in 2013. But the studio is not interested in talking about it yet. In fact, they're saving the next two years for The Witcher, so don't expect anything until 2017.

"We hope and we are certain that Cyberpunk has even bigger commercial potential," CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski explained to Reuters. "It is too early to talk about it, though. This year, and the next one will be the years of the Witcher."

This year, 2015, and next year, 2016, all for The Witcher. They do have all of those expansions to release. I hope the team gets to sleep in between projects.

An aspiring developer, Aaron Randall, built a fun little desktop app that will transform any part of your computer screen into a playable Super Mario Bros. level. On his website, he explains exactly how his creation works, complete with screenshots, a video showing it in action, and the full source code.

When Screentendo is launched, a semi-transparent window appears which can be moved and resized over other application windows. After placing the Screentendo window over an area of the screen, clicking inside the window will cause the app to render a game level based on the content beneath it.

It's silly, but it's really fun too. It's one way to make those spreadsheets twice as entertaining!

Ultra Street Fighter IV released this week for the PlayStation 4, and many people are reporting game-breaking glitches with the game. NeoGAF has been flooded with reports of weird audio glitches, slow menus, moves not working properly, visual bugs, and input lag. One such crazy visual bug can be found after the break.

Considering this was a port of an already existing game, it's baffling how Capcom and/or their porting developer could have botched this one. Some are reporting that Capcom is pointing the finger and Sony and Sony is doing vice versa. Anyone who calls Sony to complain is asked to factory reset their devices.

Spiders, the developer behind Bound by Flame, have released another round of screenshots for Technomancer, their sci-fi RPG set on Mars. These screens feature the Technomancer arriving on Noctis, one of the last civilized cities on Mars after the War for Water. Noctis is one of the last free cities from the war, which means it's ripe with bandits, bad guys, and monsters.

Technomancer is set for a 2016 release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. We will have some time with it during E3 2015.

More Witchery things have just followed in our Witcherness to suit your Witcherocity. In other words, CD Projekt has released a new patch for the PC edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, updating the open-world RPG to version 1.04. Here's the full list of changes:

  • Rebinding of all keys is now available after switching on the ‘Unlock Bindings’ option in the Options\Key Bindings submenu. Corrects an issue in the dialogue system that might have caused dialogue looping in certain scenes. Fixes an issue with incorrect behavior of Wild Hunt warriors after they were affected by the Axii Sign.
  • Corrects a bug that caused spontaneous combustion of gas clouds.
  • 1280 x 720 resolution is now properly displayed as a valid resolution option.
  • Fixes boat stuttering in cutscenes.
  • Texture rendering quality for the high and ultra presets has been improved.
  • Further improvements made in NVIDIA Hairworks performance.
  • A few additional gwent cards are now available in the Prologue area.
  • Fixes an issue where users with usernames incorporating non-Latin characters were unable to import saves from The Witcher 2.
  • Includes a series of overall stability and performance improvements.
  • Fixes issues related to alt + tabbing and minimizing the game window.
  • Updates the game icon. Enlarges the loot pop-up window in the UI.
  • Fixes an issue where, in certain circumstances, the comparison window could extend beyond the game borders in the UI.
  • Upgrading items included in gear sets no longer destroys rune sockets on said items.
  • Introduces small tweaks in the UI for gwent.

By the way, CD Projekt had to address massive complaints of outraged gamers about graphical downgrades in the third installment of the popular RPG series.

Just in case you're worried that Final Fantasy XV will go the way of Final Fantasy XIII - Versus, meaning either the way of the dodo or morph into something else, Square Enix wants to keep you all reassured that everything is going fine. They will host subtitled videos to keep fans up to date on FFXV's development progress.

Called Active Time Reports (it's a play on the Active Time Battle system from the FF games, get it?), the next one will be on June 4th at 6 a.m. PST via their Twitch and YouTube channels.

Sony and Supermassive Games have announced an August 25, 2015 release date for Until Dawn, the PlayStation 4-exclusive horror film that reenacts slasher films. The game forces the player to make choices that will affect who makes it out of this slasher flick alive, including the main protagonist.

The sixth foray into Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls universe, Elder Scrolls Online, released for PC and Mac in 2014. Like most MMORPGs, ala World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV, it required a monthly subscription to pay for the additional content that rolls out as well as the server maintenance. This past March, ESO went subscription free to a free-to-play format, called Tamriel Unlimited. On June 17, 2015, the new generation of consoles will also be able to join in the Elder Scrolls Online experience.

The console version will also be subscription free and free-to-play. Those who have explored Tamriel in either (or both!) Oblivion and Skyrim will feel instantly at home in this open world with hundreds of other players. Just don’t forget that this Tamriel is far more fun with your friends. It may be dangerous to go alone.

Bethesda has released a cinematic trailer in anticipation for Tamriel Unlimited to release on consoles. It’s just a couple of short weeks away!

One team of former BioShock developers failed at their Kickstarter project for The Black Glove, but another team hopes to have better success. Deep End Games' first project is a horror game called Perception, which features a blind woman making her way through the Echo Bluff mansion in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The only things she has at her disposal are a walking stick, smartphone, and her hearing. When she taps her walking stick, the vibrations "recreates" the world in Cassie Thornton's mind, much like the Daredevil. 

"You don't have shotguns and magic powers and all that," project lead Bill Gardner told GameSpot. "All you can do when it's coming for you is run and hide; hop in a closet, get under the bed or the couch," he says. "And hope, pray that it just passes you by. The tension here is that you see through sound. So you have to very carefully weigh whether or not you should throw that vase down the hall to see what's down there because you could attract the presence."

Perception isn't linear in time, either. Each chapter is from a different era, with each explaining what happened at Echo Bluff. Players will also travel back in time, where the mansion changes form, including its geometry, the people within, and the spirits residing. Gardner went as far as to say that the game is "narrative-driven."

The team has taken the project to Kickstarter to help make their vision a reality. They're looking for $150,000, and if they aren't able to raise the funds, they will look elsewhere for investments.

Adventures of Pip, the Kickstarted adventure that I really enjoyed at PAX South earlier this year, was postponed from May to June and now they have an official release date of next week. Pip will go to PC and Mac on June 4th, and then the Wii U on June 11th. At this time, there are no plans to release it for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, but if the game is successful on the other platforms, who knows?

Check out its launch trailer below. I really hope it lives up to the fun I had with it at PAX South.

Project CARS released earlier this month on May 12 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One with the promises of "later" for Wii U. Now it looks like later will be never, and the development team may wait for the next console.

"At the moment we're running at about 23FPS on the Wii U," Slightly Mad Studios director Ian Bell said on the company forums. "We're awaiting/hoping for more of a hardware announcement at E3."

When fans pressed that Nintendo hasn't said anything about a new console and pointed out that the NX may not be a home console at all, Bell pretty much said that if there's no new console, there's no Project CARS on a Nintendo product.

"Honestly, unless we really cut the looks back, I think we're looking to Nintendo's next console," he continued. "We could reach a fairly solid 30FPS but it might take a hell of a lot of work. On the other hand, about halfway through us finishing, Nintendo might announce a new console (I have zero knowledge on this BTW but I've heard 'rumours'). Our work might just be the best thing that ever hit that new console in the driving sim genre. So we're playing a waiting game at the moment and yes, economics do come in to it."

Yeah, it's doubtful Project CARS will happen for a Nintendo console at all. Although, were many people waiting for it on Wii U?

It appears that Capcom wants to drain a bit more cash from their Resident Evil franchise. The recent remake of the original Resident Evil game, evidently did well. Well, the official word is that it sold over 1 million copies and now they are preparing a remastered version of Resident Evil Zero. Of course they are.

This remake is expected to go on sale in early 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Also, up until now, RE Zero was only available for those who owned Nintendo platforms.

Okay, Capcom clearly is still testing the grounds for a new Resident Evil game. I, look guys, if over a million people by the original Resident Evil game that doesn't mean you should remaster every game in the bloody franchise - it simply means people value what the old game accomplished in the genre of survival horror games. It was, in fact, a genre-definining title and instead of going into the reasons 'why' that was, they just decide to give us more rehashed versions of their previously released titles. Nice. Not unexpected. But nice.

Now give us a proper Resident Evil game, because, quite frankly we haven't had one since Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.

Via Capcom.

Gamers in the UK are, of course, appear to be grabbing The Witcher 3 like the rest of the world; that's according to the latest weekly sales chart in the region. Check it out:
  1. THE WITCHER III: WILD HUNT - BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT
  2. FARMING SIMULATOR 15 - FOCUS HOME INTERACTIVE
  3. GRAND THEFT AUTO V - ROCKSTAR
  4. FIFA 15 - EA SPORTS
  5. PROJECT CARS - BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT
  6. WOLFENSTEIN: THE OLD BLOOD - BETHESDA SOFTWORKS
  7. BATTLEFIELD HARDLINE - EA GAMES
  8. MORTAL KOMBAT X - WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE
  9. CALL OF DUTY: ADVANCED WARFARE - ACTIVISION
  10. DESTINY - ACTIVISION

Man, Destiny still up there. Ah, probably has a little something to do with the release of the House of Wolves expansion pack.

Also, I know for a fact that Keri has expressed her desire to play and review Farming Simulator 15, so I guess that could be fun. Who doesn't want go on an epic adventure in a... tractor or combine harvester?

Yesterday was a federal Holiday in the United States, so many of our American friends had the day off. As I've just explained to Keri, in our case, no gaming is actual RnR and having a break from video games is often a huge relief because just for a few days or so we can get back to our families and stay away from pixels and freakin Internet memes. However, never in my whole life have I experienced video games as something bad. To some people they are a major distraction that keeps them away from real-life achievements, and in my case they have derailed me, so to speak. Each time I felt like I was sinking too deep into a virtual universe for no other reason than to escape from real problems. And that's not good. I think I just contradicted myself. Okay, I did experience them as something bad. Destiny was the last game that had me hooked in such a way. With no worthwhile content and nothing tangible to keep me in the game, I started desperately to grab onto anything that I could hold, and in this particular situation Destiny left a mark. Quite frankly, I don't know if I'll ever jump back into that world. I see very little reason, even with the recently released add-on House of Wolves.

Also, I tried playing games like Far Cry 4 and Dragon Age: Inquisition and the desire to play them on seem to fade after a time (sooner with FC 4 and a bit later with DAI).

The Witcher 3, being the latest case of potential video game addiction, is, on the other hand, a world that's worth getting into. The amount of events and characters is simply fascinating, and there's always something unexpected waiting for you as you unwrap Geralt's complex tale.

In short, The Witcher 3 is the kind of game that stays with you and I'm sure people will continue to talk about it for many days to come. Honestly, I think this game is the primary candidate for 2015's Game of the Year.
