    His acting is great for as long as you cast him for a fitting role, that role being Keanu Reeves. Nobody can play Keanu Reeves better than him.

    Looks good. FP view is as constricting es ever.

    A bit more darker time of day presentation this time around. The world looks dense and stylistically great.
    Keanu is a bro.

    I laughed. I mean there's nothing bad about it, just something intrinsically comical about sudden in-game Keanu. But I guess it would've been the same with anyone highly recognizable.

    Also there was rumour about Lady Gaga in the game a while back.

    The next thing you know the game is filled with all kinds of big name stars you will feel like you are watching a edgier version of Oscar.

    Not big on Keanu but he's a likable dude for various reasons, good choice and timing on their part.

    Gotta say, as soon as CDR got money they put it into developing something worthwhile and interesting, instead of going casual and milking DLCs like every other big studio, yeah Witcher had some popamole tendencies in its mechanics, but overall the game was head above everything else that year (or even decade). I feel Cyberpunk will have an even broader appeal (and likely some streamlined systems), but it doesn't make it any less impressive and inspiring, good on them for trying to push the envelope and actually putting some effort in AAA development.

    What does the scanner see? Into the head? Down into the heart? Does it see into me, into us? Clearly or darkly? I hope it sees clearly because I can't any longer see into myself. I see only murk. I hope for everyone's sake the scanners do better. Because if the scanner sees only darkly, the way I do, then I'm cursed and cursed again. And will only wind up dead this way, knowing very little, and getting that little fragment lost, too.

    Shame the main plot point was spoiled at the very beginning of that movie. It was otherwise a very faithful adaptation of the novel.

    Half of acting is the "presence" anyway, and Keanu has his own specific kind in spades. Especially just after huge success of John Wick 3.

    If you want to go AAA... thats the way to do it.

    We will see how the gameplay handles and how much has it been adjusted since the first reveal in the following days.

    I wonder how much of city is explorable. Because from trailers we already seen seems like most of the city buildings have some interior in them. So it is either most of them and city is very small or not that much of them and city is big. Obviously procedural generation could help A LOT (like in shenmue) but it would be really really expensive and time consuming to create shitload of interiors at this level of quality.

    Like what ? Game is done in city and will be roling with a lot of cramped spaces. If you have 3rd person camera then you need high as fuck roofs which destroy atmosphere because otherwise camera can't work inside building. It is know problem for decades at this point.
    If they would pick 3rd person camera they would have to shy away from most of interiors.

    Doubt it would work for anyone else.

    1st person is definitely the right choice.

    I can't tell if that video is something that happens in game or just something they made up as a trailer.

    If I have to choose between 1st and 3rd... I don't know, melee combat has been shit in every 1st person game I've seen it, yes, including KCD.

    Where is the gameplay? Why they are afraid to show it?
    Ugh, looks like they are balancing popamolish gameplay with tons of cinematics and Keanu.

    I smell here biggest disappointment since Watch Dogs.

    It's not like there'll be melee duels in a game like this, if you can reach an enemy while sneaking/under gun-fire you should be able finish him off without much effort.

    I understand they're a company, that their primary goal is to make money, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. What else will they hold back in order to build hype as the release date approaches? A single gameplay demo can't tide them over until April next year.

    AAA developers #1 rule:
    - If real gameplay looks crappy bullshit audience with cinematics or fake gameplay demos as long as you can.



    You might hate Bethesda but you must admit they are not afraid to show crappy gameplay.

    Did they change the beginning part of the game again? Or scrap all of those alternative mission outcomes.

    The same way you deal with it if you are having the first date with a hot babe?

    Jerk off before you start the game.

    And then I play the game and I don't recognize any of their $$$ actors.

    I mourn for the people who expected anything from Ubisoft with Watch Dogs.

    For the record, I thought I was posting in the BGIII thread, but the point still stands :D
