@bisonhero: Thanks!

Also, uhhh, that sure is a weird comment from them. Having to say your morale is great doesn’t say great things about your morale, I guess.

Can someone specify what/who the guys are talking about when they reference some people coming out of CD Projekt Red unhappy with their time on development of Witcher 3?

GBeast is putting out some quality #content these days, but I...I think this is my favourite series on GB right now. Brad and Ben are so *chill*.

Man it's easy to make fun of DOTA but I'm really enjoying this #content. I should really start playing again....

@bartok: Gear VR is definitely the highest-profile setup outside tech circles, the one people seem to bring up if I ask about VR. I'd be interested to see what the conversion rates from Gear owners to higher-grade HMDs are, though; the lack of statistics is pretty excruciating.

@darth_navster: Thanks for the support! Also: I totally forgot to write anything about modern Bioware with Dragon Age. Damn it. Anyways, yeah, I think Bioware wasn't just jerking around when they decided to implement their first large-scale, binary morality system in a universe like Star Wars; it's a fantastic combination. (Come join Austin's "KotOR II is the better game" club, there's probably a few more people down here)

@slag: Oh yeah, production costs are definitely a factor (As a fan of old Deus Ex, what are these f2p subsytems in Mankind Divided?). Also like you said, then, I guess AAA probably is never gonna strongly revisit this topic; I hope a few indie devs will carry the corny-morality torch for me, though...as long as they improve the system along the way.

@encephalon: Agree 100%: as a former dungeon master I can say guaranteed that players *hate* when a morality system prevents action or otherwise is an obvious limiter. Of course this problem is further compounded with video games since, you know, the devs aren't gonna sit down and have a chat with every single player. Maybe the best way to reward morality "tiers" would be hanging *how* the PC performs an action, so like a slight change in script, or how aggressively/violently actions tend to be performed. Hell, now that I think about it, maybe morality bars would be best as cosmetics, a thing that changes attack animations to batman-incapacitations or brutal executions.
