    Tags: CD Projekt; Cyberpunk 2077

    Like last year, CD Projekt brought a 50 minute Cyberpunk 2077 to E3 which they aren't ready to share with the public yet. Until it's inevitably released later this year, we'll have to make due with descriptions from the press. The main takeaway from the demo is that Keanu Reeves' role is more than just a cameo. He plays the "digital ghost" of Johnny Silverhand, an iconic character from Cyberpunk 2020 lore who will be V's companion throughout the game. He becomes involved with the story when V is implanted with a unique chip that may contain the secret to immortality. The demo seems to be concerned with V's attempt to investigate the chip by seeking the aid of a group of Haitian netrunners called the Voodoo Boys. You can see a few of these characters in the new batch of screenshots CD Projekt released yesterday:

    Here are some of the previews released over the past 24 hours:

    Besides all the hype surrounding Keanu Reeves, another thing many websites have been impressed by is the confirmation that it will be possible to play through Cyberpunk 2077 without killing anybody. All in all, it's quite a whiplash from yesterday when people noticed that CD Projekt had begun describing the game as "open-world action-adventure" and started getting worried.

    There are some neat ideas there, but I can't shake off the feeling that mechanically the game is just limp and edgeless.

    Shitty arcade bossfights, a horrid Bethesdian perkchart, bulletspongy leveled enemies, (apparently) leveled gear, shit minigames doublegating skillchecks...and so on. I dunno.

    I might be wrong of course, and this is the new coming of silky soft toilet paper, but... so many seemingly little things piling up and making a smell.

    Which is not surprising anymore.

    Sounds bit like Yakuza to me. And it's awesome.

    This is supposedly what the demo was running on:

    Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70Ghz
    Asus ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming
    G. Skill Ripjaws V, 2 x 16GB, 3000Mhz, CL15
    Nvidia GeForce GTX1080 TI
    Samsung 960 Pro 512 M.2 PCIe
    Corsair SF600 600W

    Any news on minimum system requirements?

    You could say all the same things about witcher 3 though, and it's right at the top of the chart. On the other hand if you didn't like it, I expect there's no chance you'll like cyberpunk.

    The smell was there all along. Some time ago I said CDPR is going to end up going the Bethesda route eventually. After making so much money out of the Witcher franchise (and fair play to them), what did people expect? A cult RPG? No, you get a movie.

    Sure, you could have. It proved to be a pretty lame, though.

    Yes, it's been there. I suppose there's still that little naive optimist somewhere inside me, that desperately wants to find something decent about this since the CP2020 foundation is so good.

    No, Witcher 3 is a good RPG according to this site, since it's #15 in Codex top RPGs of all time.

    Bullet sponge enemies are the worse. One of the reasons I hate Borderlands and The Divison and the likes. I hope CDProjekt doesn't screw it up. Some previews didn't like the way gunplay feels. But the game will be released in one year, plenty of time to fix that.

    I will be impressed if you can really get through the game without killing anyone - which probably does not mean "avoiding all combat" (nor should it). That alone makes me interested in the game.
    I will need to upgrade my PC, though, if Windows 10 requirement (as seen on GOG's page) is confirmed.

    I'll probably get it in a sale sometime down the road, I mean, the Witcher series is good, but doesnt make CDPR games day one purchases by a long shot.

    I hope Deus Ex is the main inspiration for this game.

    All in all, Skyrim is a better RPG then Witcher 3 which was, is and will be the new cancer killing RPG as we can see that wuthout any doubts CP will be tailored to the same patterns like their most successful game Witcher 4.

    I'll bite. How the hell is skyrim a better rpg than witcher 3? Is it because it lets you play as a furry?
