    Nah, all of their games were delayed, some of them more than once. If anything it's a good sign that the game will be more Polished (I'll see myself out now :p).

    You do realize that Witcher 3 was delayed several times, right (and so were other games in the series)? And even at release it wasn't exactly bug-free and could have used some more polish. Better they take their time to make sure there are as few bugs as possible. In any case, I think Cyberpunk 2077 will be alright, eventually.

    Plus, new GPUs and the new consoles will be out around their new targted release date, so they will have some time to ensure the game will run well on them (and probably even require them for the best experience).

    To be fair, some of these patches just added some free DLC content.

    Maybe he enjoys his early access games that never see the light of the release :D

    Gaming studios should only announce a release date when more than 80 or 90% of the game is finished otherwise it´useless and sometimes silly...

    Actually they should wait until they are certain the bugs will be worked out.

    They announce such to sell pre-orders and keep the hype going.

    I personally haven't seen any correlation between the quality of games that are delayed vs games that are released before they're ready. Games that are delayed are only something to worry about if there's not enough funding, but that leads to what Embra said, where the game is getting plenty of pre-orders, so, their funding is sufficient.

    Yes, they don't want to fall short on the delivery of the hype they're built. Oddly enough, this delay may actually help dampen the hype.
    I totally agree about waiting though. Paying for a pre-order (especially because of the hype) means we're telling them "it's good enough as-is, you don't need to work on it anymore". Besides, how often do we ever benefit from pre-ordering? Best-case scenario, you get a few days of early access to a game that's horribly buggy. Why would I want to pay in advance for that? Remember - the game is digital. It's not like you have to buy "while supplies last". Pre-ordering is only helpful to indie developers who need help funding to keep the studio afloat and give the devs a morale boost. Pre-ordering AAA games is just simply a bad idea.

    No doubt this is to align with the release of the new consoles. I mean what other AAA games do the consoles have to launch with?

    What? Doom Eternal was delayed, and that had an amazing launch. Zelda Breath of the Wild was also delayed, and was also incredible.

    Linux is hassle even for power user, too much time wasted on OS.. its maybe fine for some admins, which are living within it, but if want even Windows level like customization of user environment good luck, there are zillion graphical environments, but all quite locked. It has some advantages like shared libraries etc, so i has smaller footprint and its quicker to make image and restore - but there is lack of big backup and restore tools like Acronis, Paragon etc, so you are stuck with some limited tools and or scripting hell. Its getting better, but there is still not equivalent of Total Commander, some Windows users live within it. Im using it was because its free, i just boot on most of HW just by copy from other machine, quick to install, booting faster, has great bootloader - Grub, KVM cards pass throught and its funny to have something to compare with Windows.

    For me multi-monitoring sucks - new Desktop icons, are added to left top corner, not on main desktop, most of games are starting on left not primary monitor, i not possible make panel on each monitor, which is sharing windows list for all session etc.. Its not often even possible to drag and drop web pages link from Browser address bar. There are some per distro problems - make stupid Steam desktop icon in Solus was hassle, there are even desktop icons disabled by default. Today i wanted just make to shortcut to some text fine on samba share, what is working within Windows, Mac by few clicks, but links not working for that.. And i can continue - i have installed Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, Solus and Manjaro. I would recommend Mint too, its most human friendly. I really dont like Arch, its for very special sort of people, i like rolling philosophy, but nothing else.

    It dont thing that it would be big thing for more users, until it will get rid of same bad mainframe foundation elements, like not boot into gui, because something wrong (like missing volume from fstab) - Windows safe mode great in comparison, tutorials using awkward text productivity editors, necessity to use terminal for settings, because missing options in GUI wizards, continual necessity of rewrite password, every few minutes when you configuring something, case sensitive file system by default, its annoying permission + owner system - for desktop its exorbitant.

    Other issue are some Linux ports of popular application, which are simply much worse than on Windows, or just missing. Wine is now great for games, but for just some small WIndows you are used to use its not great..

    No pre-orders here, except maybe on good books bashing Donald tRump...
    Will make sure to wait and see how this pans out. If it turns out good, it might be something to pick up. Might just as well wait until Chris's Mess sale for it.
    Stopped buying games at 60$ a long time ago due to crashing/day 1 patch hell. Now with all these different online stores, I buy even less because many are exclusive to other non-steam stores and hence I cross them off my list and forget about them (I do not pirate, period, either, though I have fancied some no-CD patches for some older titles to get them to run). When games also require more than one DRM service like uplay, origin, epic etc, they are also a write-off. Too many hoops for someone who's poor memory makes them always forget passwords, for me to be paying money for something. With all the hoops you have to go through (with a poor internet connection at that), it almost feels like they should pay me to have to suffer through all of that.
    So to that end, DRM free or Steam games, that's it. If it's not accessible through those means, I don't play it, and I keep my money.
    @ruthan I entirely agree about the linux stuff. Since first trying it in 1997, it's still just as much of a pain, though that said the 'dependency hell' has gotten a little better even for the roll-your-own type distros. Typing in passwords everytime I want to sudo or doing the ./configure ./make ./make install stuffs I do not miss one bit. When file sharing with a Windows machine, I joked to my buddy about 15 years ago 'it's easier just to hack into it than it is to legitimately get sharing set up'... which still to a lesser point holds true (this was stated when XP was in it's hay-day and Windows 98 / ME machines were still around though in dwindling numbers). I love linux, don't get me wrong, it's great, but it certainly was not built for anyone other than those who want to play administrator at home on their time and not get paid for it. Good for servers, not so good for users, and definitely not for the mindless iPhone-using selfie-taking crowd.

    We want, but I suspect this will be a game that forces people to upgrade. Start saving that "I have no life, it's the pandemic" money now.
