The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be DRM-free on PC, in line with what CD Project RED has previously said about DRM. However, the PC version is fine but what’s really making people concerned is the DRM on consoles. CD Project RED strictly opposes DRM and with Xbox One implementing strict DRM, it will be interesting to see how the studio will solve the issue.
“I can only talk about our intentions; we don’t have any agreement finalized yet,” CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński tells Joystiq. “It’s all quite early and we’re finding out about it this week, at the conference. But our intention, obviously, is to choose the most gamer-friendly solution.”
“Whatever the solutions will be for our partners, we choose something ideally as close to what we have on GOG as possible.”
“There’s one important comment I’d like to make. When we announced [The Witcher 3] at the Microsoft conference, we saw a lot of comments on the internet. ‘Hey, you should not release the game on Xbox One.’ I think, really, that’s not fair to a lot of gamers who choose Xbox One as a platform. We strongly believe in the freedom of choice, and not releasing the game on any of the platforms would be a disadvantage,” He continued.
“Gamers, ultimately, especially right now when the new platforms are showing up, choose what they think is fine for them,” says Iwiński. “Some people will have good connectivity with the internet and have no problem, and they’ll just go with the Microsoft solution. On the other hand, we’ll see how it will be changing in time, because I think there will be a lot of things happening on the market and competition between all the platform holders. The thing that will not change will be PC and DRM-free.”
”People are overdramatizing to a certain extent,” he says. “I just want to assure them that we are true to our values, and will not punish any gamers. At the same time, they can choose whatever they see fit.”
“I think the level of involvement of the audience, especially gamers, who are super connected online, has changed, so they’re very vocal about it,” Iwiński says. “I think this is particular in our industry. Are you really going to go online and bash a washing machine that you don’t like? I don’t think that you have such a personal attachment to it, but games, movies, books, they’re very vocal about it.”
The Cat Lady is now available for purchase on GOG.com.
The game is currently available 25% off during the first week, that’s $7.49. Otherwise it will be available for purchase for $9.99. I might as well say it, I love the game and it’s well worth the amount you pay for it. It’s not one of those games were you finish it within four hours or something like that, but it has a good length, a meaningful story, and is actually a good game.

Many people complain that today’s games are lacking in some areas. They always refer back to the time before 00′s and vocalize that it was better in the past. Games have, and always will, come with both the good ones and the bad ones.
My first recommendation is Theme Hospital. I used to play this a lot when I was a kid. I never really understood what I was doing, or why I was shooting mice, but it was all good fun. What was even more fun was that the assistant, or whatever he/she was, used to call out on my cheating. Yes, I cheated even before I turned eight. I can’t really say when I started playing the game, saying I started playing it when I was three may be a stretch, but it wasn’t far off.
The game was released in 1997 for the first time, then released in Europe in 1998.
Theme Hospital is a simulation at its finest. You’re the CEO of a hospital and it’s your job to make sure it runs smoothly. The difficulty and requirements to pass to a new level continuously increases until you realize this game doesn’t want you to succeed. It’s not easy running a hospital with patients running around vomiting all over the place. It’s actually quite stressful.
The game is really fun and I suggest you give it a try. For more information, you may want to read this Wikipedia article about it. Oh and if you wish to buy it, simply visit gog.com which sells it for a few dollars.
