    ARGENTINA are up against Paraguay this week in what should be a spicy South American World Cup qualifier. Watching Lionel Messi is worth the price of admission alone but these two sides will give it a right crack in an effort to get a strong foothold in their group. Argentina will want to coast through their qualifiers so they can move themselves into an easier World Cup group, when the draw is eventually made. 2Messi is in line to start for Argentina against ParaguayCredit: Getty Images - Getty Paraguay, however, haven't been to a World Cup since 2010, when they reached the quarter-finals, ultimately losing to tournament winners Spain.

    Cyberpunk 2077 is undoubtedly the most awaited game of the year. The action RPG game has been in the works for years, and CD Projekt Red has already had to delay the launch twice. However, the developer recently announced that the game had gone gold, and it is only a matter of weeks now before players get a firsthand experience. Amidst all this, CDPR has faced constant backlash for the past couple of weeks. The reason being the mandatory crunch enforced at the studio, with developers having to work overtime hours every week to meet next month’s launch deadline. Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier has been at the forefront of reporting the crunch culture being ordered at CDPR. Many developers on Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2020, have been working overtime hours for months if not years now. But this call for six-day work weeks, “mandatory” crunch, directly reneges on what CDPR’s bosses told me last year. — Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) September 29, 2020 These reports created an uproar in the gaming community. The CDPR bosses...
    In late September, Bloomberg reported on changing working conditions at CD Projekt Red, the Polish developer behind the upcoming highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077. Despite previously promising that its workers would not be subjected to extended overtime hours, CD Projekt Red was going back on its word and now making “crunch” mandatory. Intellectually, most people would probably agree that the idea of crunch, which refers to periods of intense and extended overtime, is bad. Workers should be fairly compensated for their time, the thinking goes, and they shouldn’t be stretched so thin that they risk burning out. And yet, the gaming industry has seen numerous reports, many of them from Bloomberg (and former Kotaku colleague) reporter Jason Schreier, about poor working conditions at so many major studios that it feels like some fans have normalized the concept. There hasn’t been a big reckoning here; even high-profile games with documented cases of crunch, like Red Dead Redemption 2, have gone on to sell millions. And while some developers have promised to improve, with a looming holiday season and new console generation,...

    They haven’t played a game together yet, but Kyrie Irving say he trusts Kevin Durant more than any past teammate at crunch time. The Brooklyn Nets formed their star duo last offseason, pairing Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in free agency. But Durant of course missed this entire past season as he worked his way back from  ruptured Achilles. Irving only played 20 games in his first season with the Nets due to a right shoulder injury. Irving is known for saying some odd or interesting things at times. During his appearance on Durant’s “The ETCs” podcast, his thoughts on the role of new Nets head coach Steve Nash qualified. But Irving also said he trusts Durant more than anyone to make clutch shots. Kyrie says playing with KD is the first time hes been able to defer late in games ????

    Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red is reportedly implementing a mandatory crunch period ahead of the game’s November release date, according to a Bloomberg report. Employees will be required to work six day work weeks — “your typical amount of work and one day of the weekend” according to an email allegedly leaked from the Polish company. Previously, CD Projekt Red promised that its employees wouldn’t have to “crunch” — that is, work grueling hours over a span of time to complete a game. However, in January, CD Project Red CEO Adam Kicinski admitted during an investor’s call that “some degree” of crunch would be necessary in completing the game. Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed multiple times, moves that onlookers hoped would reduce crunch. The game is now slated for Nov. 19. According to the Bloomberg report, CD Projekt studio lead Adam Badowski sent an email to notify employees about the required crunch period. “I take it upon myself to receive the full backlash for the decision,” Badowski wrote in the email. “I know this is in direct opposition to...
    Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has told employees that six-day workweeks will be mandatory ahead of the game’s November 19th release date, even though the studio has repeatedly and explicitly promised it would never do that, Bloomberg reports. On two separate occasions in 2019, studio co-founder Marcin Iwiński told game journalist Jason Schreier how it would address crunch, once even saying that “we want to be more humane and treat people with respect.” It seemed pretty clear from excerpts like this that mandatory crunch was not going to be part of it! Jason: If I’m a designer at CD Projekt Red and I say you know what I have kids, I have a family, I’m going to work from 10am to 6pm every day, and that’s it. Even until the very end. Am I going to be okay with that? Iwiński: Yes. Yes. Jason: No matter what. Iwiński: Yes. Jason: So you can commit to that? Iwiński: We’ve committed to that already. While CD Projekt Red didn’t completely throw crunch time out the window, the company was...

    Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends and Valorant, will be giving employees the week of August 10th off to “disconnect, recharge, and reboot,” the studio announced in a blog post published Tuesday. Riot has recently expanded beyond its global smash hit League of Legends, including releasing auto battler Teamfight Tactics, Hearthstone-like card game Legends of Runeterra (which are both set in the League of Legends universe), and Valorant, a brand-new tactical shooter that takes cues from Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Overwatch. But in an industry known for overwork and enforced overtime, referred to as “crunch,” to ship and maintain games, Riot is giving employees a break to help with their health. “As game developers, we’re all hyper aware of the effects of crunch” “As game developers, we’re all hyper aware of the effects of crunch and project-based deadlines,” Riot said in its blog. “We owe it to ourselves and to you to prioritize our health as a team (well, many teams) so we can bring you new experiences long into the future.” Riot also said it...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Kemba Walker saw a slight uptick in playing time on Sunday afternoon, playing 22 minutes in Boston’s win over the Portland Trail Blazers. The Celtics point guard is still on a minutes restriction due to lingering left knee soreness, but when he’s on the floor, Walker looks like the All-Star point guard who helped guide the Celtics near the top of the Eastern Conference this season. Walker saw a few extra minutes of action Sunday after playing 19 minutes in Boston’s loss to Milwaukee on Friday night. He was solid again against the Blazers, dropping 14 points on 5-for-6 shooting, making both of his three point attempts. The plan is to have Walker back to his normal workload when the postseason arrives, and the Celtics have six more seeding games to build up the All-Star point guard. Walker hasn’t showed any signs of the injury or rust when on the floor, and that’s great news for both Walker and the Celtics. What we haven’t seen yet is Cardiac Kemba in the fourth quarter. In both of Boston’s...
