    I don't have to eat everyday, do I?

    Seriously though, I'll probably grab the Ultimate digital version. Good thing it's coming to Steam because that was my number one concern, that it'd be an EGS exclusive. Would have prefered it on GOG but oh well. I mean it's stalker, one of the last few AAA games I'm interested in, might as well go for the pre-order right away as I'll not skip it even if the reviews are awful.

    That looks really nice.
    I've just installed Autumn Aurora for a play through of SoC.

    Latest news about S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is that it will use NFTs.

    My interest in something has rarely plummeted this fast.

    And they already walked it back, thank goodness. NFTs are a scourge and should be opposed at every turn.

    Glad to hear it, although the sleazy feeling lingers. Fan backlash is one thing, but Valve has also banned NFTs on Steam and Phil Spencer is on record for not being a fan either, although it seems he makes a distinction between "exploitative" NFTs and NFTs that presumably aren't. Maybe they figured they'd go Epic exclusive if they couldn't argue with Valve that they're not selling NFTs within the game itself so it should be fine, but their Microsoft partnership made that more complicated?

    Apparently right before canceling the plans they posted and then immediately deleted a defense of the thing:

    DEAR STALKERS,

    WE WANT OT GIVE A DETAILED COMMENT ON YESTERDAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT OF NTF-BONUSES FOR S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.

    GSC GAME WORLD IS AN INDEPENDENT GAME DEVELOPMENT STUDIO. WE HAVE NO PUBLISHER, BUT WE DO HAVE WONDERFUL PARTNERS, AN INCREDIBLE TEAM, AND A DREAM OF A GAME THAT YOU WILL SINCERELY LOVE. JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER DEVS, WE NEED TWO MAIN RESOURCES: TIME AND MONEY.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: HEART OF CHERNOBYL IS TRUELY THE BIGGEST AND THE MOST COMPLEX GAME WE HAVE EVER CREATED. ALL THE FUNDS THAT WE EARN DURING THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS (INCLUDING THE POTENTIAL INCOME FROM NFT) WILL BE SPENT ON IMPROVING THE LONG-AWAITED GAME TO MAKE IT EVEN BETTER.

    WHY DID WE CHOOSE NFT? TI'S A NEW TECHNOLOGY, AND WE ARE EAGER TO «DO NFT RIGHT»: GIVE CERTAIN FANS AN OPPORTUNITY «TO GET INTO» THE GAME WITHOUT INTERFERING WITH OTHER PLAYERS' EXPERIENCE. THAT'S WHY THE TOKENS ARE ENTIRELY OPTIONAL AND HAVE NO IMPACT ON GAMEPLAY OR STORY (NO WEAPONS, QUETS, LOCATIONS, ETC.) AND CAN BE ACTIVATED ONLY BEFORE THE GAME RELEASE.

    YESTERDAY WE ANNOUNCED THE FIRST TOKENS — THE FACES OF SEVERAL NPCS. THEY AREN'T EVEN INVOLVED IN THE STORY. BUT SOME OF YOU THOUGHT WE WOULD GO A BIT TOO FAR FROM HERE. THAT'S WHY WE WANT TO TRANSPARENTLY DISCLOSE OUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE NFTS. WE ARE GOING TO IMPLEMENT (NICK)NAMES OF THE OWNERS ON SOME IN-GAME DESKS/WALLS/ETC, (PLEASE REMEMBER IT'S A LARGE OPEN WORLD WE'RE TALKING ABOUT), GLOVES/TATTOOS, SKINS/BADGES FOR THE MULTIPLAYER MODE (RELEASING AS A FREE UPDATE AFTER THE STORY CAMPAIGN) AND COLLECTIBLE CARDS (DMARKET PLATFORM ONLY, NO INTEGRATION IN S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2).

    DMARKET WAS CHOSEN AS A PARTNER AS A VIDEOGAME-ONLY BLOCKCHAIN PLATFORM. THEY LOVE GAMES, AND THEY WERE EAGER TO WORK WITH US ON THIS KIND OF SOFT NFT REALIZATION. DMARKET WORKS ON A PRIVATE BLOCKCHAIN SYSTEM WITH BRIDGES INTO OTHER NETWORKS (SUCH AS POLYGON AND SOLANA) WITH PRIORITY TO PROVIDE LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND MINIMIZE CO2-EMMISSIONS AND OTHER NEGATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS.

    IN THIS STATEMENT, WE ARE AS HONEST WITH YOU AS WE CAN. WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR SUUPPORT, BUT AT LEAST WE HOPE YOU CAN HEAR US AND UNDERSTAND OUR REASONS.

    THE TEXT TURNED OUT TO BE VERY BIG: THANK YOU FOR READING IT TILL THE END. PELASE ACCEPT OUR APOLOGIES FOR YESTERDAY'S MISCOMMUNICATION AND ALL THE FEELSINGS IT CAUSED. WE KNOW THAT YOU WISH ONLY THE BEST FOR OUR GAME, AND WE APPRECIATE IT.

    WITH LOVE

    GSC GAME WORLD TEAM.
    I love the "Do NFT Right" and "To Get Into" the game quote marks, straight out of their board meeting NFT hype presentation.
