The cost of fixing Cyberpunk 2077 is "irrelevant" compared to restoring company reputation, says CDPR - CDPR promisses to fix the game at any cost

When asked about the costs of patching the game on consoles Michal Nowakowski, member of the board for publishing, said, "The cost of patching the game is irrelevant [compared] to what we have at stake/spent at this moment, so there is no question about it. We definitely want to fix the game, we made our promise to gamers, and we will be doing everything to stick to it[...]"

Adam KiciΕ„ski, CD Projekt Red co-CEO, began talking about only showing the game on certain platforms before launch, saying that this caused the loss of gamers' trust and the reputation that they've been building through a big part of our lives. He said, "That’s why our first steps are solely focused on regaining those two things. We are concentrated on fixing Cyberpunk on last-gen consoles."

KiciΕ„ski also reiterated from a previous statement that was released yesterday regarding the current state of console versions, saying, "The first substantial set of fixes was released over the weekend. The next set of fixes will be released within the next 7 days. Big updates are planned for January and February, together with smaller fixes. Of course, PC gamers will also be getting regular updates and fixes. We'll do everything possible to prove that we stick to our values. We truly hope that our efforts will let us rebuild the trust we have lost."

LPT: If a company offers you a temporary position with the potential for a full-time position at the end of your agreed-upon time of temporary work, then ask them for the details of the full-time position. At that point you can tell whether or not there really is a full-time position available.

So I just spent the last two and a half months working for a company as seasonal labor. Customer service during the busy time of the year. Over the past couple months all 13 people who were hired as seasonal have been told that 3 full-time positions would be given out to those with the best performance.

Now that the the date for our temporary position is two days away they have sent emails to people informing them of whether or not they received a position. the email stated that there was only a limited number of full-time positions and unfortunately you were not the one chosen.. As if they thought we would not talk amongst ourselves we found out that all 13 people were told the same thing.

In other words there were no full-time positions.

One person in our group was the smart one. When they got hired on they asked to see details of pay, benefits and the likely schedule of the potential full-time position. The job recruiter could not provide this at all. She said that they dodged this question multiple times and she knew right then and there that there would be no full-time positions given to anyone. Because the position did not exist.

So from now on when I get hired on a temporary basis with an expectation that it can lead to a full-time position I will be asking for the details of that potential job and you should too.

I wish The PokΓ©mon Company would shake up the formula a bit

I've played PokΓ©mon games for the majority of my life, though I've recently had kind of a falling out with the franchise since there have been a lot of questionable decisions in the most recent games.

Anyway, we now have gotten 8 generations of games which follow quite closely the same formula: fire-grass-water starters, route 1 normal rodents and flying pokΓ©mon (usually normal-flying), pikaclones, dragon pseudo-legendaries, early game bug pokΓ©mon that evolves quickly and is generally unuseful, etc. It may be a small thing, but I wish they'd get more creative: maybe asking for a different set of starters is too much, but I would love to see a route 1 dragon type pokΓ©mon with poor stats, maybe Ghost and Dark types that are usually found in mid-late game populating the early game, having a differently typed pseudo-legendary, etc.

What do you think? Do you think this could help bring some fresh air to the franchise? Or would you rather they stuck to the known formula?

LPT: Beware the "Intern Trap". Don't take a job as a X Intern at a company that doesn't have anyone who can do X.

Interning should be a process of learning a craft while you help to contribute to the overall institutional goals.

If a company is advertising for an intern position, but doesn't have anyone who does that job, then they are probably just trying to pay someone less for a job that they want someone to be able to do. Traditionally, these are jobs that young people are adept at, but older people may not have the skills to perform.

For example, they probably need/want a Social Media Manager, not a Social Media Intern, but they want to pay less, hence the title. If you interview for a position like this, ask who at the company you will be learning from. If they don't have someone senior in the role, they may be willing to offer a mentor in other valuable skills - a senior marketing manager, for example.

Consider negotiating a title that reflects what you will be learning, not just what you will be contributing. This will help you develop your resume and, well, hopefully learn new skills. Also consider negotiating a title change and salary adjustment to reflect that title. "It seems that you don't have anyone at the company in a position to mentor a Social Media Intern and that what you really need is a Social Media Manager. I'm happy to take that role, at the junior level, and prove my worth to the company."

Really take a look at the learning on offer and what it's worth to you - if they're paying you $20k less a year, then your mentorship better be up to that value. You can save yourself a lot of wasted time and money by avoiding this "Intern Trap".

EDIT: To be clear, some internships are genuine where you trade your work for real on the job learning (and a small paycheque). These should have someone on staff who is responsible to the intern - an actual mentor - or there should be a clear trade of skills/experience for your work and time. These are not the "Intern Traps" I intended to warn about. Nor am I talking about internships or practicums related to an educational course of study.

I'm talking to job seekers looking for a job who might be undervaluing their skills, potentially negotiating with a company that is trying to take advantage of the applicant.

In Canada, where I'm from, unpaid internships are (now) illegal, though were prevalent early in my career. These privilege people who have enough resources and support to be able to give their time and labour away without financial compensation and disadvantage people who can't afford to work f

Manager: "Company Policy Is We Do NOT Pay For Overtime", Tech: "Sure, OK, Whatever"

Sometimes as a consultant you get to see how an office functions from an outsider perspective. Since you are an independent contractor the company treats you differently than an employee. Also, just due to the nature of contract work, your engagement is usually short term. This makes you a temporary fixture and sometimes are just treated as the "fly on the wall" like you do not exist. And this can lead to some interesting observations including seeing train wrecks in progress.

This is one of those tales. Not so much about the nuts and bolts of tech support, but more about the people and some good old fashion just desserts.

Background...

As a consultant, you are always going to be the "IT Guy" whether you like it or not. No matter how you market your services every single company is going to assume you can do anything with a computer. And, when business is slow, this is not necessarily a bad thing if you just need work.

About 10 years ago I found myself in a situation. I got an inquiry through my website asking about assistance deploying some workstations and other mundane tasks. Usually I would pass on this kind of work, but it was winter and the other client work was dry that month. A guy still has to pay the bills so I followed up and within a day the scope of work was signed.

Easy stuff. The company had its own IT department, but just needed some extra hands. I was going to be one of three outside contractors that would deploy some workstations, do some server admin work, and set up some other equipment for a new department. The money wasn't the best, but it was time I had free and it was all swing shift work (meaning no traffic and I get to sleep in). Not bad.

The First Day

I report as requested about 3PM and talk to our contact. He was a Senior Engineer in charge of part of the IT department there. Saying he really doesn't have time to do anything more than a quick introduction as they are slammed with work, he shows us the ropes and leaves us to it. Between three of us we break down our specialities and parse out the work. Everyone knows this is a cake walk of a job and wants to just get it done fast as the pay was flat rate.

I take the server work and see my contact who the System Administrator. Figuring he was probably gone for the day as it was mid-evening I was just going to leave him a note asking him to call me, but to my surprise he is at his desk. In fact, just about everyone in the IT department are milling around. Didn't thi

It's crazy to complain about seeing lots of posts about American topics... when you're using an American website made by an American company for a primarily American userbase.

Yes. Reddit is intended for all users, of any country.

Yes. Reddit has millions of users from all across the globe.

Yes. Reddit enjoys that it is taking revenue from all of your countries too and would love to continue doing so, and expand.

None of that changes that this is a US website made by a US company. Reddit pays taxes in.... the US. Reddit has to abide by US laws as its registered as a US company. Reddit's headquarters? San Francisco, California, USA.

I want you guys to imagine that an American logs onto a Hungarian website. This is a .hu website, made by a Hungarian company for a mostly Hungarian userbase, but they'd love to advertise to anyone so all is welcome.

Can you imagine that American making a post on that website bitching that there is soooo much Hungarian drama being posted?

"I'm tired of seeing Hungarian news. Not everyone lives in Hungary you guys! I don't care about your elections. You guys are all a bunch of narcissists for constantly talking about Hungary here. We're all sick of seeing it. Can you Hungarians shut the fuck up?"

I guarantee every single one of you would call that American an entitled, narcissistic cunt. And tell you what guys, if I was an American on that website I'd be embarrassed by the behavior of my fellow American and join you all in mocking him.

So can we maybe all come to terms with the idea that the majority of the userbase of a website is likely going to discuss those people's issues the most, and it's not proof of how self centered people are that simple statistics works out?

Guess what? If 90% of the users of reddit were Russian, I'd be willing to be 90% of the posts on reddit would be about Russian politics. Russian news. Russian celebrities and their bullshit. That's how simple things like these work.
