CD Projekt Red gets NAMCO BANDI to publish Cyberpunk 2077 in Europe (2019 release?)

I dunno: maybe? “CD Projekt Red recently made a deal with Bandai Namco to publish its upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077 in 24 European countries. Previously, The Witcher developer partnered with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to distribute Cyberpunk 2077 in North America.”  CDPR used Namco back in 2014 to publish Witcher: Wild Hunt, and that game came out in 2015 (and just over a year later).  I’m going to go out on a limb here — not really, of course — and say that I think that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to have a Christmas 2019 release date.  We’ve seen game footage that looked reasonably finished; it’s clearly well along in the development queue, or whatever the phrase is.  I don’t believer that we’re going to be forced to wait for 2020.

Mind you: I am not an expert. I am probably not even a journeyman.

Good Lord: YouTube went down.

While I was in the process of trying to figure out how to see my Wi-Fi password on my phone, too.  I spent far too much time trying to figure out what I had done to break my access to YouTube, but apparently it went kerflooey for everybody.  And here I was thinking that was having an annoying night.

“Mountains of Madness featuring John Williams” [GURPS 4e]

“Mountains of Madness featuring John Williams” – Google Docs

“Mountains of Madness featuring John Williams” Tenth Anniversary Soundtrack (2021)

 

Mountains of Madness (directed by Guillermo del Toro; starring George Clooney, Octavia Spencer, Gary Oldman, and Kristen Stewart) was one of the highest-grossing films of 2011 on Homeline. Del Toro even managed to score John Williams for the soundtrack, which (as usual) netted Williams an Academy Award nomination.  It’s widely considered to be one of Williams’ better work; the ‘Main Theme’ in particular somehow manages to be simultaneously peppy, pulpy, and deeply creepy, all at once. The tenth anniversary commemorative soundtrack is itself rather nice, with charmingly retro things like physical artwork — and an actual compact disc inside!  The whole thing has “collector’s item” stamped all over it. Well, not literally, because that would be crass.

Movie of the Week: The Thing.

I gotta watch The Thing again.  …During the day, when my kids aren’t here.  I’m pretty sure that it would freak them utterly out.

Item Seed: Boneflower and Boneflour

Boneflower and Boneflour

 

Yes, they’re pronounced the same.  And yes, it’s supposed to be confusing (potentially lethally so).  Necromancers will have their little jokes, particularly when they promise to be entertaining to watch.
