CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski has assured that the delay of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will not affect their other role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077.
"Cyberpunk 2077 is developed by a separate team within CD Projekt Red, so the development of Cyberpunk 2077 is not really affected," Iwinski told GameSpot.
However, Iwinski did say that some of the Cyberpunk team members are helping out The Witcher 3 team.
"In order to ship a huge RPG we do use help of certain team members between teams. It works this way between Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3," he said. "We are working hard to deliver an outstanding RPG and rest assured, that all the learnings on The Witcher 3 are being applied to the Cyberpunk 2077 development."
Cyberpunk 2077 is being developed for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. CD Projekt Red has not given an official release date for this RPG.

The last thing EA needs is another mess with an online-only game on its Origin platform, and with Titanfall's release on Tuesday, it looked like that could be a possibility. Several users complained of connectivity issues when trying to sign on to play Titanfall, but EA claims those problems have all been cleared.
Specifically for everyone complaining about receiving "error 503" with the PC version, that issue has been cleared. EA posted the following message on their Titanfall Help Page:
Update, 3/12, 5:45AM PST: Titanfall's earlier connectivity issues have now been resolved, and you shouldn't have any problem getting into the game. Thanks for sticking with us during this downtime.
Hopefully that's the last of the mass online connection issues for this title.

As I'm sure most of the gaming world is aware, a little multiplayer game called Titanfall released on Tuesday for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. On Tuesday night, Xbox Live had numerous online connectivity problems, which grossly affected any multiplayer games such as Titanfall.
While it lines up nicely that this outage could be linked to Titanfall's release, therefore producing a surge of players trying to get online, Microsoft has insisted this is not related to the game at all.
If you are having issues signing into Xbox Live, we are aware of it and actively working on the issue. This is not a #Titanfall issue— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) March 11, 2014
Xbox support said that by 2am UK/7pm Pacific that the main issues were fixed, and they have recommended that any Xbox One owners experiencing these issues should power-cycle their systems.

Planning on running Watch_Dogs on your PC? Ubisoft has released the game's minimum requirements, but creative director Jonathan Morin has emphasized that it's best on a "very high setting," which isn't that much of a shock.
"PC on very high setting is REALLY stunning if you ask me," Morin tweeted.
These "very high settings" include over 8GB of RAM with either an Nvidia GTX 670 or a Radeon HD 7970 graphics card and either an Intel Core i7-3930K or AMD FX-9370. But if you need to know only the minimums, here they are:
- Processor: IntelCore 2 Quad Q8400 2.66Ghz or AMDPhenom II X4 940 3.0Ghz
- Memory: 6GB RAM
- Video card: 1024 VRAM DirectX 11 Shader 5.0
- Sound Card: DirectX9
- Hard drive: 25 GB

The open letter from the company regarding this delay is after the break.

Keri takes the time to do a bit of role-playing with some of our favorite characters from Southpark, as Obsidian rolls out it's long-awaited game. Have a gander at the snip:
Yes, the gameplay is turn-based, and the South Park characters make fun of that quite often. In the tutorial, Clyde remarks that it's stupid, and Cartman agrees. If you take too long to make a decision when it's your party's turn, characters will comment how bored they are and they wish they were watching TV at home. The combat is just the beginning of the game mechanics and features the characters make fun of. Nothing is sacred and nearly every typical game element can be found within, from door puzzles to memory mini-games to summoning help in battle to Nazi Zombies.

The Xbox Games with Gold program hasn't exactly been that entincing since it started up at the end of 2013. While PlayStation Plus is releasing brand new games, the Games with Gold has seen far older ones, such as Halo 3 and Assassin's Creed 2. Microsoft wants to change that.
At SXSW, Phil Spencer promised better improvements are on the way for Gold subscribers.
One of our issues with Games with Gold — not 'issues,' but differences between the other system we get compared to, is the fact that with Games with Gold, you get to keep that game, regardless of whether you continue to subscribe. And the business around Games with Gold, for us, is just fundamentally different from some of the other programs that are out there, which does put a different financial picture on a — you're gonna go buy a game that's brand new, the cost of putting that in, just to be kind of blunt about it.
That said, I have been sitting down, monthly now, with that team — some of the earlier months were already programmed — and playing a more active role in picking franchises that show up in Games with Gold, and I think you'll see at least something that feels, at least, more true to what I think Games with Gold should look like with the constraints that are there.
So maybe the games will only be a year old instead? I'm being mean, I admit. Really any improvement would be a good thing.

Blake Jorgensen, CFO of Electronic Arts, doesn't believe that Battlefield 4's issues will negatively impact the franchise in the long term.
At the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference, Jorgensen bluntly said that the company hasn't "seen any damage" from the problematic launch.
"We've also tried to provide extra content to the consumers to make sure they keep coming back and playing the game and we're finding that it's working very well," he added. "I don't see that there's a damage issue."
Woefully optimistic, or could it just be many people have just moved on from something else so there's not as much negative chatter?
