    Ray tracing is just a gimmick at the moment. It gives a tiny increase in visual fidelity at the cost of tanking your FPS. You'd rather want to use that computing power to increase your FPS or your resolution instead. Hence why even though I personally have a RTX2080 I'm planning on playing Cyberpunk 2077 with ray tracing off.

    Don't get me wrong, ray tracing is the future, but to fully utilize it to its full potential you need 1. a ton of computing resources that at the moment are better spent on doing something else and 2. you need to create the entire game from the ground up with RTX in mind, not as an optional extra. Hence why even though next-gen consoles will have ray tracing capabilities expect it to largely be a marketing gimmick (the true gamechanger with nextgen consoles will be the SSD, the whole 8K 120fps ray tracing crap is just marketing bullshit).

    As for Cyberpunk 2077's spec requirements: its difficult to say at the moment, but if your rig runs Witcher 3 without any problems you will probably be fine. Remember that The Witcher 3 already had to be downgraded to work on current-gen consoles and Cyberpunk 2077 has to work on the same consoles. The PC version of Cyberpunk 2077 will probably be the same as the console version except with bigger crowds, higher FPS and resolution possibilites and a gimmicky ray tracing option in the menu that gives a tiny increase in visual fidelity at the cost of tanking your FPS, similar to the way Nvidia Hairworks was a performance-tanking gimmick in The Witcher 3 and übersampling was a performance-tanking gimmick in The Witcher 2.

    I don't buy the Deus Ex comparisons. Based on what they've shown to the public, the game looks nothing like Deus Ex. Not really even Human Revolution or Mankind Divided.

    Swimming is nice, though.

    Did anyone else refuse to whistle (unless in earshot) for your horse in Kingdom Come: Deliverance?

    I suppose it at least makes sense in the setting. Tesla vehicles can pretty much already do this.

    The Yahtzee video is funny because it points out how these choose how you play games are always stealth or shoot and knockout or kill which doesn't mean anything in terms of consequence. These things aren't inherently bad or wrong but, I doubt Cyberpunk 2077 will be an MGSV in terms of gameplay mechanics, interaction and systems so it will be a pretty but useless open world filled with linear quests.

    I have a feeling that a lot of people hoping for some sort of in-depth "RPG masterpiece" instead of a GTA-like with handlers and missions are going to be very disappointed around Launch around here.

    Regarding Expansions, I never really understood why more "Open World" game companies don't do this. RockStar tried with "Episodes from Liberty City", but a game such as this if well received would be very suitable for telling 2-3 more "stories" of different characters and classes, whether that's a Judge Dredd-like Cop/Law Enforcer having to deal with the dregs of Night City, a Corpo having to set up deals and navigate a world of corporate intrigue and politics to come out alive and on top or a Cyberhacker/Trauma Team member with a lot of fitting missions and a mini-campaign around the respective job or whatever else with their own (shorter) content. They could even overlap the main campaign so there'd be opportunities for Player character Cameos and dead/otherwise dealt with popular characters reappearing.

    It's pretty stupid not to do it at the very least until people are bored of it, after you've spent the better part of a decade developing a hopefully believable "Open World" with micro-details, polishing up your engine to display all that, all the required gameplay systems around shooting/driving/hacking and whatnot, UI/skill systems and everything required. You've got major characters and locations down, a lot of assets modeled, a cast of actors that you could reuse in different contexts and you could develop new gameplay systems, characters and storylines as required for the specific campaigns which would be a lot easier than starting anew. Instead you're just going to throw it out into the world once after a lot of hype, maybe release an Expansion with a few additional missions and start anew with an entirely different game right away, throwing all of that high-detail content and all the work done on the hub, world and characterization for a decade away?

    My guess is that some of the quests will be decent and with multiple solutions, at least, but 80% will probably be "missions". We should have Witcher 3 as a reference of what this game will be, for good and ill. Personally, even if I am sure it's a great game for most people, couldn't play W3 for more than 3 hours before giving up on silly cutscenes, so I guess I am out of luck.

    WOW a new start location! Now I can go to the only available quest at the start from the north, OR from the south..

    or maybe... call me crazy.. but JUST MAYBE, we can approach it from west or the east!
