Saga Thoughts For March 11th, 2014

saga thoughts logo 300x213 Saga Thoughts For March 11th, 2014

Hello everyone! This is going to be a new (hopefully daily feature) on the site which we are calling Saga Thoughts. What are Saga Thoughts? Saga Thoughts are thoughts for the day — a recap of the day and/or the day’s events if you will. Think of it as us putting a wrap on the day, or perhaps putting the icing on the cake. This will serve as an alternative/addition to Top Storitorial (which will return eventually). This will allow us to share thoughts and the like that are worth mentioning and talking about, but not detailed enough for a Top Storitorial.

As you can see, we have rolled out a new design today for GameSaga. Thank you for bearing with us as we implemented the new design and worked out the kinks with the layout. Why did we switch to a new design? There are several reasons for this change. First and foremost, it is much easier to use from a back-end perspective and also from a front-end perspective (in my opinion). It’s a much cleaner layout and content is visible as soon as the page finishes loading instead of you having to scroll down to see the first post. It is also is a dark look compared to our previous light look. Your opinion might vary, but this is easier on the eyes to me (especially for night viewing).

Everything that was part of our previous design should still be there in some way, shape, or form. The current exception being the breaking news feed, which will be added again once there is some important breaking news to post (assuming it is compatible with our new layout). If there’s anything you see that’s missing, feel free to let us know either on this post, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or via e-mail.

Thanks for reading and supporting the site, we appreciate you stopping by.

A young street hustler who likes to run his mouth, Mickey likes to talk big on the streets, but when push comes to shove, he can’t back it up.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Delayed To February 2015

CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed until February 2015 according to a post on the official website for the game. Here’s the full statement from the team:

Ever since we started working on the third installment in The Witcher franchise, it has been our aim to produce a title that would take our 11 years of experience in creating RPGS and distill them into a quintessence, into a game that would effectively crown those years. At the same time, we have wanted The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to expand creative boundaries, set new benchmarks, develop the genre as a whole. Ultimately, you, the players, must get an unforgettable adventure to experience in a vast, open world – and that’s most important. We’ve created a story that flows naturally, cinematically, rendered it in amazing sound and visuals, while preserving full freedom of choice – all for you. We knew this to be an ambitious plan, but believed we could achieve it by bringing together our team with its creative energies and current gaming platforms with their technical capabilities. A project this vast and complex would inevitably require special care in its final stages, manual fine-tuning of many details, thorough testing time and again.
We recently reexamined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game’s final release date. The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. Yet we concluded that a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015.
Dear gamers – we know many of you would have liked to play The Witcher 3 sooner, as soon as possible, even. We’re sorry to make you wait longer than you, or we, initially assumed you would. At the same time, we believe the game will prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us. We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment.
Dear shareholders – we are aware of the responsibility that rests with us and thank you for the trust you have granted us thus far. We firmly believe that quality – more than any other factor – determines a game’s success, and that the decision we have made is thus equally valid in business terms.
