Update: CD Projekt Red has been in touch and passed on a comment written by studio head Adam Badowski in response to this interview. "It's true that the game was based on the popularity of the Witcher novels, so there's no sense in wondering what came first, the chicken or the egg. In this case, the books and the author are both of those things. "Our cooperation has a strict and defined direction. I can't imagine Andrzej Sapkowski playing a game to do research for the new novels. This is unlikely and would look like writing a book for a game or movie release, which ends badly in most cases; the novel winds up in a collector's edition and then covers with dust somewhere on the gamer's shelf. "We want to develop The Witcher's universe in other media, not only video games. We have Mr. Sapkowsk's blessing and what we create is in line with his vision of the world, no matter how the saga will evolve. "We want The Witcher's universe to be a part of pop-culture like Star Wars or The Lord of … [Read more...] about Ever wondered what the author of The Witcher books thinks about the games?
By Russ Burlingame - December 10, 2019 09:00 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 As The CW's "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover came to its reality-shattering cliffhanger tonight, the good guys took on heavy losses. Some of those might or might not stick, but there were a few that seems far more likely than the others to remain off the board. One, in particular, seems all-but-guaranteed. In a multiverse of possibilities, it seems virtually impossible to make such a prediction with 100% confidence -- but that's more or less what the narrative is asking us to do right now and, like with Oliver Queen's death in the first part of the crossover, this feels like the "real thing," even if it turns out not to be the whole story. So what do the comics tell us about what's next? Who will live, who will die, and who will never be the same? Read on... Spoilers ahead for tonight's episode of The Flash, titled "Crisis on Infinite Earths, Part Three." Tonight on The Flash, … [Read more...] about Crisis on Infinite Earths: SPOILER Dies in Part 3

By Charlie Ridgely - December 10, 2019 08:55 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 When it hits theaters early next year, Birds of Prey will look to distance itself from the reputation given to DC's previous team-up film, Suicide Squad, by giving Harley Quinn a zany and eccentric adventure with some of her closest pals. From what we've seen so far in the trailers, and heard from the cast and crew in recent months, Birds of Prey will be a pretty big departure from the movies that have come before it. Part of this may just be the R rating, but Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan was also influenced by some incredibly unique filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino and Stanley Kubrick. Hearing that a movie is influenced by Tarantino immediately makes you think that the film will be filled with quick dialogue, heavy language, and a lot of over-the-top violence. Birds of Prey will have all those things, but they aren't the only markings of Tarantino's inspiration. During a visit to the … [Read more...] about Birds of Prey Director Got Inspiration From Quentin Tarantino Films
