@efesell: I think on the one hand there SHOULD be some recourse for him getting paid some extra money based on how unexpectedly and wildly successful the game series was.

On the other hand, his weird assertion that the games would make people like the books less or make the books less popular is, of course, utter nonsense. The last book was only translated into English a couple years ago. It's undeniable that the games made people interested in the books.

@boozak: I don't want to defend the guy because he comes across as a huge jerk in that interview he did with Waypoint a couple years ago, but I don't think it's fair to say Sapkowski is in it for the money.

This looks decent. I'm not a fan of Cavill, but everything else looks fine. There's a brief second in the trailer where he's swinging a chain, which is callback to the opening cinematic of the first game, which is itself a nearly play-by-play visual telling of how that fight goes down in the book.

Loved the first game, but never got into the second. Maybe I'll check this out, but I'm not hopeful considering how PvZ 2 was designed.

@notnert427: This would be hilarious. "Oy, me and the boyz were at the store yesterday, and guess who walks in?! It was a whole family of SPOICE MUHREENS!" *battle ensues, ends with exasperated workers cleaning up the mess as a group of eldar and dark eldar walk in and start fighting*

Ten years sounds good to me. Ten years is longer than a generation AND is still a solid 20+% of the time video games have been a thing.

I see Conrad Verner is still on his stolen valor bullshit.

There are definitely games I'd love to see a QL of that never get one. I'm loving the premium series out of the Beast crew. UPF is still pretty fun. Rorie needs to do another RPG stream.

Giant Bomb has been around for more than a decade now. The business has changed. The crew has changed. The viewers have changed. I get it, it can be hard to realize something you loved doesn't bring you as much joy. I hope you find another site that has what you're looking for.

This honestly wasn't as bad as most of the other, "Giant Bomb has CHANGED, man," posts.
