    I'm convinced it will be good and I'll like it, more so than any game I can remember. Could be I've set myself up for a fall but I have to say it's been nice to have a game out there that I was genuinely excited about; it's been a while.

    Super amped for it, even holding off one buying other games just because I think this will take up all my free time for a while.

    I'd really love to get a 3080 in prep for this game but looks like I'll have to play on a 2060 for a bit. 1st world problems I know.

    Well.. it looks like EVGA is going to a queue system for 3080 allocation, I had signed up for notification a long time ago so maybe I'll get a notification. You have 5 hours to make the purchase after they offer it to you.

    I'm having a hard time feeling bad about the crunch time brouhaha. It sounds like a lot of waa for people who have a substantial performance based bonus. Am I wrong?

    Unclear. The company has said that every employee will be "well compensated for every extra hour they put in." What that actually means is unknown. Regardless, at some point, the extra pay isn't worth the extra detriment to health. I'd rather they delay the game again than work their employees into the dirt.

    (I don't mean this to sound condescending by any means, but one could equally turn that statement around, and say "I'm having a hard time feeling bad for gamers who have to wait longer for games. It sounds like a lot of waa for people who just want a luxurious plaything.")

    It’s funny. The hours that the Internet is feigning outrage over look like a normal workweek for many Americans, and that’s without the generous overtime bonuses that CDPR is offering...

    True enough, although I wouldn't say the normal workweek for many Americans is exactly a great model to follow. :confused:

    The performance based bonus is 10% divided among them; that isn't going to be chicken scratch with this game, it's going to be real money. Detriment to health doesn't sell to me, if these were drones on a fixed salary and being forced to work draconian hours without any extra pay it might resonate but we're talking hours that would be a piece of cake for most of the world that isn't completely entitled and they're going to be making a serious chunk of money from those hours.

    It's a CDPR game, ofc it won't be kid friendly.
