The Witcher 3: Tax Evasion

The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone DLC came out this week, adding around 10 hours of gameplay for the cheap price of £8. It's also added another tongue-in-cheek feature that proves how loveable a developer CD Projekt Red is: a Taxman called Walthemor Mitty (Excellent nod a very underrated Ben Stiller film). Upon encountering you in White Orchard, he'll ask you 3 questions: if you've ever sold rawhide in White Orchard, if you've ever picked up oysters or clams with the intention of selling their pearls, and if you've ever taken anything from anyone's house (Pretty much everyone's guilty of that one).

As you can guess, the first one is a reference to the cow-killing exploit that CD Projekt Red fixed by adding a nigh-unkillable guardian to it. Of course, you can just say no to every question and get away with it, but if you admit to your crimes, you'll be charged 1000 coin. Damn.

Not much else happened today, but one goddamn amazing thing was the release of the Fallout 4 - The Wanderer Trailer, a astoundingly well-made live action trailer that shows the world of Fallout as it would be in a movie. We get to see the playable character, Dogmeat, Mr. Handy and some power armour, all the while the action is being set to Celine Dion's "The Wanderer". Great stuff
