    Cyberpunk 2077

    I searched for the thread about this, but couldn't find it. Maybe it's oddly titled. Anyway here's the first teaser for the game:

    Doesn't really say much, but I like the style.

    ALso: I REALLY hope you get to be the cop in some form. I've always wanted a game where you are the cop going after all the super-dangerous robots and mutants and ghosts and the like.

    This looks suspiciously like a player intro scene.

    Think about it. Obtaining tech in the CP setting isn't a case of looting a dead body for a new arm. It takes time and money and lots of surgery. What better way of introducing a player into the world with every toy in place than to make him a MaxTax case that got spared for recruitment. The subsystems locked after you got busted get gradually reinstated to normal functionality as part of the usual RPG levelling system.

    As an aside, I love how the MaxTax operative is so badass, he doesn't have to show his slick teks to anyone. Just a plain gray overall.

    Most likely. I don't see them doing it FPS style.

    How very GITS. I've always wanted a proper proper proper GITS game, like a proper one. DX:HR was pretty close though actually.

    Yeah, I was actually going to try and mash some words together to come up with a sentence that meant the same thing; a game like DX:HR but more like GITS: Stand Alone Complex where you have cases rather than 'I need to go here then go here then go here', and the cases slowly alert you to some hidden group or something orchestrating a load of shit for some reason. So basically non-linear Deus Ex? I don't even know.

    I am intrigued. I have come to really like CDPR. Whether it's their stance on DRM, their excellent post-launch support of their games, or their awesome accents in their dev diaries, those guys are alright with me.

    Cool song,nice looking trailer,i need more!


    You should include this description of teaser on youtube.



    The teaser shows how the Psycho Squad might acquire a new member.

    The Psycho Squad specializes in combating "psychos" -- individuals who overuse implants and substances that boost or otherwise alter the human body.

    There comes a point when they overdose on these innovations, and their bodies start to rebel against their biological body parts as well as all things organic around them. Simply put, they start killing people, who they now derisively call "meatbags."

    When a psycho goes on the rampage, strange things can happen. There's carnage, and the psycho might be taken down by regular police, but they're not always able to get the job done.

    When things spin out of control, they call in MAX-TAC (Maximum Force Tactical Division), popularly called the Psycho Squad.

    Nifty. Looks like we do get to be super-cops.

    For the record: all I know about this is that it was announced during a presentation I had muted (but had a boobtacular splash image) and that the trailer is nifty :p

    I just couldn't get into the Witcher games, but since I adore what little Cyberpunk I've consumed (Blade Runner, GITS, GITS SAC, Deus Ex HR), I can't wait for this game.

    I went on a Sci-Fi binge to prepare for an RPG I'm going to run starting in February and I consumed some stuff I'd been putting off for years. I was really disappointed by GITS and Blade Runner. GITS had a really cool world, but it spent a lot of time saying very little in a rather drawn out fashion. I liked the characters and the voices and the style and the action sequences and the world building ... but the writing really let me down. Haven't tried GITS SAC ... would you recommend the show based on my issues with the film?

    Blade Runner was an incredible piece of film making, and I really liked some of the writing. But at the end of the day I don't think it told a particularly interesting story. There was also an exceedingly discomforting sex scene, but I think it might have been intentionally discomforting. I guess I really wanted there to be a mystery or at the very least a less random-seeming conflict between the characters. At the same time, there was something to Deckard's character being a selfish, not-all-there incompetent and something to the surrealness of it all. I'm not convinced it would have been "better" if had been more what I expected, but it wasn't quite my cup of tea. Visuals, audio and world building? Exceptional.

    My favorite Cyberpunk at the moment is Snow Crash by Stephenson just-about-tied with by Neuromancer by Gibson. Completely different books, but they speak to things I love about Cyberpunk and do it really, really well. In the tabletop RPG space, I'm very fond of the two-pager Ghost/Echo.

    On the games front, the Netrunner card game (either version) is also incredibly slick and seems to be inspired largely by Neuromancer. There was a Cardboard Children issue about it; I'd highly recommend it to fans of Cyberpunk or of two-player dueling games. Any card that's in play is in jeopardy when you're the corp. The runner can hack your hand, your discard, your deck, your servers ... you have to defend all of it.

    On the PC games front, I loved Deus Ex:HR as a game and had issues with it's fiction (dialog and world-building were, yet again, spot on ... but the plot left a lot to be desired towards the end). I have high hopes for this based on my Witcher experiences. While we're waiting for more info, what Cyberpunk media would the rest of you recommend? Feel free to boot me out if this post is too much of a tangent. :P

    I bounced off of The Witcher, and kind of filed the series away for another day. This has my full attention.

    Yes. It takes what was good about the film (setting, aesthetic, action, characters--altered somewhat to suit the show) and explores that world in a far more interesting fashion, with a lot less ethereal philosophizing. Whenever the future unfolds, I always seem to find something about SAC that is coming into being.

    Still have to read the latter, but "Snow Crash" already gets one black mark for the unnecessarily lengthened flotilla part.

    I'm trying to remember what you'd be referring too ... was there something particularly bad about it or was it just overlong? If the later, I'll trust you. Stephenson has a tendency to make EVERYTHING overlong if you step too far from Snow Crash. I probably just don't remember the parts that dragged. I feel like as a whole it didn't drag too much. in any case It's no where near as clippy as Neuromancer. Neuromancer is one of the more finely edited books I've ever read. Very slick, very pointy.

    Also I'm in love with the opening line.

    I just had so much fun with Snow Crash. It's so unabashedly ridiculous and it has some cleverness underneath the wonky bits. It opens with a badass car sequence that (very minor joke spoilers) turns out to be a high tech, high stakes pizza delivery.

    It's just a far too long sequence of describing how Hiro jumps from ship to ship, from vessel to vessel and so forth without any real significance to the story, right before the big "Ok, let's recapitulate what we know so far to explain the whole plot for those who are lost" scene. I really enjoyed all the other parts, but that one could easily have been left out. My memory of the exact order of events is a bit hazy, but I think that's what happened.

    Neuromancer > Snowcrash

    I recall being bitterly disappointed with the latter in truth, despite everyone telling me how goddamn wonderful it was.

    I didn't spot a direct reply to your question, so here's my take:

    I assume you saw the first GitS movie, which is very much a typical product of Mamoru Oshii in its approach to storytelling, you probably don't / won't like his other movies as well. The sequel is less philosophical, and more noire than the first, which basically tackles the themes of the nature of humanity / what it means to be human / how technology affects/changes humanity, it is effectively a combination of the original manga and Blade Runner, but more introspective than both of them.

    GITS SAC revolves around smaller cases presented in a episodic format that link together to form a bigger picture as the series progresses and as such is closer to the formula of the original manga: the tone is a lot less philosophical than the movie (still you get at least an introspection per episode on average :P) but far more dry than the manga - which has more than its fair share of silly/comedic moments in addition to explicit sex sequences.

    I'd say SAC is both excellent and the most accessible part of the franchise, and if you want to give it another try, it's probably your best bet.

    CD Projekt has yet to let me down and their list of influences and what they want to take from them are just dreamy.

    Nice.

    Definitely looks like the Nikita sort of thing with you being brought down and then turned into an operative. Could be interesting.

    It's hard to tell from the trailer anything from the trailer and I don't think they've given out very much information.

    But I'd take a guess that it'll use both third and first person. Come on, it's cyber punk, there has to be some sort of cool eye augmentations they can make amazing use of in first person view. Like if you're talking to someone your eyes process their face to try see if they're lying or not. I'd really like it to be both anyway.

    But in relation to the game and the trailer, all of the yes.
