Destiny: The Taken King Expansion Evidence Leaks Again

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Doesn’t Have a Level Cap

CD Projekt Red has confirmed there is no hard level cap for Geralt in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Community lead Marcin Momot confirmed the news on Twitter, which means you’ll theoretically be able to master all of Geralt’s abilities and max out his Skill Trees if you’re persistent.

Of course, in practice it’s less feasible. While you’ll be able to grind your way as high as you want by fighting monsters, once a decent spread of quests and other map events have run out it’s going to be a long slow road.

Interestingly, Momot’s comments on Twitter have led to calls from many for a New Game Plus mode, so you can start again taking a different path through the game and taking on challenges that’ll reward a decent amount of XP. At the time of writing CD Projekt Red has yet to respond to these requests, though perhaps it has something up its sleeve related to the two sizeable expansions coming later in the year.

Review: HazeOver dims background apps on Mac to reduce distraction


There never seems to be a shortage of apps that promote focusing on a single task, especially writing apps. And then you have hardware like the iPad, which forces you to focus on a single app at a time.

With the Mac, focusing has never been that easy, because multitasking is at its core.

HazeOver is a new Mac App Store utility that seeks to change the way we work on the Mac. By dimming background apps, it aims to help users focus on one app at a time by reducing distractions from surrounding apps. You can still have other apps open, they’ll just be dimmed in such a way that they’re less noticeable.

Does the idea work? Check out our video walkthrough for all of the details…. Read the rest of this post here
