    Tags: CD Projekt; Cyberpunk 2077

    Today CD Projekt unexpectedly decided to broadcast a special episode of their ongoing Night City Wire series, unveiling (at last) nine new minutes of Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay footage, as seen on current and next gen Xbox consoles. It starts out with a quest to locate a missing person, but there are so many cuts that it quickly becomes impossible to understand exactly what's going on. There's some driving, dialogue, combat, and a couple of encounters with Keanu Reeves' Johnny Silverhand. At some point the game switches to a different quest and it ends with a rather horrific braindance recording.


    According to the accompanying press release, CD Projekt also plan to release some PlayStation gameplay footage at a later date. The next proper episode of the Night City Wire will be airing in two days, on November 19th.

    Graphics lack definition, everything is soft and blurry, probably due to video resolution and compression but still... It doesn't look good at all, reminding me of fallout 4 of all things. Performance is also going to be a massive issue on the base last gen consoles as well as the ps4 pro, because if the one x struggles with the game, the pro having lower specs will shit itself.

    Otherwise it looks decent.

    Remember kids, CP2077 is a BODY POSITIVITY TITLE!

    Quick reminder in the latest footage, much like in almost every other fucking trailer, lest you forget this!

    The game has literally the texture fidelity of Deux Ex Human Revolution, a 9-year-old game, but has more post-processing fx and a higher poly count gong on. :dance:

    When you shoot people numbers pop out of them, so it's clearly an RPG.

    This just reminded my of my hatred of everything from the last 10 years. The music, movies, focus on image and bling etc.

    The last 10 years we've been living in Cyberpunk. My suspicions have been confirmed yet again.

    So... It's "good for what it is" or not? It's certainly not an RPG, and it's not cyberpunk, but here we are talking about what this isn't.

    The funniest thing about the video is the sheer ignorance about the cyberpunk genre that it highlights in the thread.

    This is BY FAR the most accurate rappresentation of a cyberpunk city ever seen in a videogame and the usual codexians - unsurprisingly - keep bitching about how the game is not cyberpunk.

    SOOO predictable

    As I understand it the Codex has no taste for Cyberpunk - I don't actually know anything about this setting, other than it seems queer as fuck. The very idea of it seems entirely postmodern. Codex can bitch about the game design, but yeah, it's going to be a thin facade for their political rants about how much they care about God and their dearly loved fat wives (are these two things the same : a valid question). Only the Ubermensch will be able to distinguish between their own personal taste and a cold analysis of the structural functions of the product, its aesthetic characteristics, and so on ; the plebos are always emotional and reactive in everything they say.

    It"s not a matter of taste. It's a matter of knowledge (or lack of).

    I'm not even sure I like this art direction. I would probably have preferred something more authorial, along the line of the foreign city in Ghost in the shell: Innocence, instead of this run of the mill CP esthetics.
    Point is: You gotta be ignorant of the genre conventions, blind or both, if you keep saying that this game is not cyberpunk.

    Simple as that...

    I think it's because of chromatic aberration, aka "VHS filter", so I hope it'll look sharp on PC after turning off.

    It's difficult to find footage of this game that doesn't have abrupt or bizarre cuts in some way or another. Combined with all the delays, makes it feel like there's a lot of smoke and mirrors going on.

    Honestly, Congqing looks years more hi-tech than this.

    Also, why doesn't Keanu sound like Keanu:\

    I fail to imagine what's so appealing about that ethnic jungle of a game.
