    Hype will hit astronomical levels if they actually get Daft Punk to do a song or two.

    All the pages for this game appear to describe it as "Open World Action Adventure." So the question is, does this really belong in the RPG forum?

    Why is Keanu Reeves in the game now? I don't understand. Do they just spin a roulette and say x celebrity is in the game?
    Also, after seeing this enough times now, I'm 90% convinced that this is just going to be another grand theft auto clone and all expectations or enthusiasm I've had are gone now.

    The choice of Keanu Reeves as celebrity guest star wasn't entirely random. :M

    Whatever you think about Keanu Reeves or his appearance in E3, he was the most suitable Movie Star to represent the game. Or at least among the most suitable ones.

    Could be worse. They could've cast Goldie Hawn.

    Well, I don't think it's that big of a deal anymore.
    Sean Bean was in Hitman 2.

    I bet Sony will push every game with some celebrity.

    Gotta say, I dunno if I should just avoid trailers or what, but it's pretty annoying that this trailer pretty much spoiled every story beat that was set up by the gameplay reveal.

    Keanu makes perfect sense. He's been in 3 major cyberpunk films of the past 35 years (Johnny Mnemonic, The Matrix, A Scanner Darkly). He's at the height of his mainstream popularity, especially among important demographics that might not otherwise be interested in Cyberpunk 2077 (teenagers, women).

    They're selling Cyberpunk 2077 as a big "event" game similar to RDR2 and GTA5, so you have to capture the FIFA players, Madden and CoD dudebros.

    Decided that attracting the 100 million people who bought GTA would be nice.
    It is pure marketing though, the game will be more RPG than Witcher 3 was.

    codex proclaimed "jackass" actually is a nice guy. CDPR will use it more for PR stuff, but in case i like, it always think it is a win-win situation for everyone.

    a lesson to not judge random stranger you barely know, no?

    That was a mono-molecular whip you ignoramus.
    Not a "laser" one. You cant bend light like that.... unless its a led whip, which wouldnt have that much of an effect.

    So this is a homage of course, or Mike ripped off Gibson... which would be a surprise, right? Lets call it an energy whip. Plasma whip if you want to be fancy.

    Yeah, the cringefest that we saw after Witcher 3's rise to fame will only get worse with a Sci-Fi game in a setting where real-life political and social critique have always been a thing.
