That's one tenth of what Facebook, a multi-BILLION dollar company, offered to give. Impressive (and shameful for FB).

What have you given? Because if you haven't given anything you have know room to talk about how much one should've given.

Who decides how much an individual or a company must give to not be called "shameful"?

Be grateful that Facebook gave anything. How much did you give?

Shane Kim2d ago

If we give the amount in percentage that fb gave it wouldn't amount for anything. It would be like we gave a cent.

Why are you guys defending efffing FB. SMH

rainslacker1d 20h ago (Edited 1d 20h ago )

Yeah. Shameful of facebook to just give away 10 million of their liquid capital.

Shame, shame shame. March them through the streets naked and throw rotten food at them.

I'm not a fan of FB, but give credit where it's due.

Good guy CDprojektRed.

My only wish is that because of this pendemic, humanity will finally find the cure for viruses so we don't have to suffer through a flu, cold or this ever again.

Atticus_finch1d 21h ago

Sorry dude, that's not how it works. The virus has to come into existance before we can try to develop a vaccine. That's why you need a flu shot every year. Viruses are constantly changing.
But one thing is sure, the entire world should be much better prepared for next time.

rainslacker1d 19h ago

The vaccine for the flu is basically a version of the flu they expect to be prevalent that year, in a form that doesnt replicate persistently. Your bodies immune system fights off the basic version, then is more like to be immune to the actual flu virus. Because of this, there is no way to just make a permanent vaccine, and the cold and flu are two different kinds of viruses.

Considering GoG.com was in financial trouble last year, this is huge of CDPR to do. What an amazing company.

if they couldn't afford it, they wouldn't. Don't forget the incredible increase of witcher game sales with the netflix serie and the royalties for all derived goodies. It's colossal. Not for nothing they have finally announced a new witcher game while they said some months ago it would not be a new witcher game development before several years (stay a good news I love this ip).
