‘The Witcher 3’ is more popular on Steam than ever. Nearly five years after release! Thank Netflix, right?
Good god, look at that Netflix bump! The Witcher 3, which is already an enormous success, is back in the gaming zeitgeist. Thanks to the Netflix series based on it, the fucker has more concurrent users on Steam than ever before.
I know that I haven’t written a Monday Morning Commute in a hot minute, and if truth be told, I don’t want to be writing one now! Hey, how’s that for a hello! But, I gotta admit. It’s just tough to get the juice needed to spin one. However what I know is this: for every week a skip, it becomes more difficult. So here I am, friends. Every once in a while I wax nostalgic here, a bit lachrymal. Despite closing in on a solid fucking decade of OL this August (I say goddamn!), there’s always a bit of me that misses the old days.
What can ya do, nothing gold can stuff. And, if gold can’t stay, imagine the lasting power of this shambling space-ship in the middle of Oblivion.
So even though these posts feel more like Captain’s Logs chronicling the end-run of blog entropy rather than a communal experience these days, I’m here! And this is what I’m digging and anticipating this week.
I don’t know, I’m fucking worried about Cyberpunk 2077. Maybe I shouldn’t be. But, it’s been in development forever, and we don’t know shit. So, is the Witcher 3 director joining just adding dope talent? Or, is it a sign of troubled waters? Someone help me interpret this.
Yeah, I’m really hype that The Witcher series is selling like hot cakes. Why, if I’ve never really enjoyed them (more out of a lack of commitment to another life-ruining game like Fallout 4)? Cause I want CD Projekt to ruin my life with Cyberpunk 2077, and I imagine this success gives them all sorts of funding for it.
Man, I’ve barely fucking touched The Witcher 3. You know. Marriage. Summer class. Arkham Knight. Now Sleeping Dogs. But even though I may never finish it, I will still vigorously applaud this decision. Every RPG should have a New Game +.
