Cyberpunk 2077 - CDProjekt's New Joint

Schreier reports that the hack disrupted CDPR’s workflow to such a degree some developers have been locked out of their workstations for the past two weeks.

CD Projekt has said it refused to pay a ransom to the hackers. As a result, employees remain unable to log onto the company’s virtual private network, making it impossible to access the systems and tools needed to do most of their jobs, said the people, requesting anonymity because they weren’t authorized to talk publicly.

Although some CD Projekt employees are working from the headquarters in Warsaw, the majority are at home due to the coronavirus pandemic. CD Projekt didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Despite the unplanned vacation, the hack has been a nightmare for employees. The invaders had access to their personal information including Polish identification numbers and passport details, leading the company to tell staff to freeze their accounts and report the security breach to the government and their banks, said the people familiar with the matter. Workers were also asked to ship their computers to the company’s IT staff to be scanned for malware or other intrusions, the people said.

Yeah I can definitely see something like this being highly disruptive for around 2 weeks. Much more than that, they’re messing around.

What a pain in the ass! Fuck those hackers/thieves.

Man, the lines for the Nomad life path are bad compared to Street Kid. All of them are: “As a former nomad, something something family.”

It’s the Vin Diesel backstory.

Looks like you can never trigger the roller coaster mission if you’ve already done the “Double Life” mission of examining the BDs in Judy’s apartment.

Well that sucks.

Walmart has a Cyberpunk problem (and a Fallout 76 one apparently…)

I was in the Lebanon, PA store for printer ink and spotted the above. They had less Xbox One copies at least.

Are they still asking full MSRP?

Roach is in Cyberpunk.

Let me guess: he’s part of the vertical level design on top of a skyscraper?

He’s a dumb decal on one of the Quadra cars.

Why did I think Roach was a she?

Implicit bias?

The brown horse at the start of Witcher 3 is a mare (female).

There we go!

Yes, Roach is a mare in the books and in the videogames.

I think Roach is just the name he calls all horses he rides, right?

Yes, but the one at the start of Witcher 3 is a mare. There are some dialogue trees in some missions where Geralt refers to Roach in female gendered language.

During the game some choices may lead to Geralt acquiring a black stallion to replace the brown mare.

Wait, what? So Roach is an office, like President of the United States or Dread Pirate Roberts? I wish I didn’t know that. It’s going to affect my attachment to the horse in the Witcher games.
