I preordered this who knows how long ago and every time they delay it, I consider getting a refund because I'm pissed.
It better be worth the wait.....
You know the game will never be as good as we imagine it is going to be. Optimists go through life being constantly disappointed, while pessamists are always pleasantly surprised.

This is why I'm a realist; best of both worlds.

Although to be fair, being a realist and being a pessimist is pretty much the same these days.

An Optimist thinks this is best of all worlds. A pessimist knows it.

They still haven't officially released the min/suggested specs for it though, right?
They have. XBOX One and PS4.

PC minimum specs are still TBD. And that's what's important. :)

I preordered this who knows how long ago and every time they delay it, I'm glad they're not just shitting out a miserable turd and cashing in on it before rushing off to the next payday.

Given the record of this studio, I'm willing to wait.
2020 has been the longest century in recent history, and we're still not done with it.

25 minutes of gameplay footage from Cyberpunk 2077, this was provided by CD Projekt Red and is featured in the trailer that aired during Night City Wire.

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.

I think I am going to not watch any of the videos starting now, so as not to spoil any more than the small things I've seen from the prologue already.

I've adopted that philosophy as well. I want as I play to be seeing things that make me go "oh, wow" because I've not seen them before. It is the approach I used on the last GTA game and it made for quite an experience, especially the first time I came across Trevor :shock:

Same here. I recognise the brilliance of The Witcher 3 but I couldn't really get into the setting. Cyberpunk (the genre) is much more my thing so I have high hopes for this game.

I've been staying away from serious spoilers, but did look at some of the first impressions from some of the journalists allowed to play for 5-6 hours. I'm really looking forward to this!

I should be so eager for this game. But my gaming computer has a 1060 (should be good enough but it's certainly not going to be high settings) and I won't have access to that computer until at least 2021. At that point I might just wait until the summer of 2022 which is, right now, my planned retirement date. It should be reasonably priced by the Steam summer sale!

Hmm, I have a 1060 too, 6GB unit, I guess I'll have to do some thinking.

I'd be amazed if it doesn't at least run on a 1060. Depending on the rest of your hardware you may be pleasantly surprised!

Like you I'd be amazed if it didn't run on a 1060. I'm not convinced it will run well which will be a bother when I do get to play it.

Yes, but will it have Roach? :D Can I name my car after him?

I'm honestly amazed at how well I was able to run The Witcher 3 on my aging hardware. But I think I'll be playing this one on console.

Witcher 3 ran pretty good. had to turn stuff down or off. I dont think Ill play CP2K77 for a few years. It will have to wait until the house is paid for. If Im alive Ill play it then.

Wow. Yeah, that's not nearly as a bad as I thought. I might be able to just stick with my 970 and be fine.

I have 3 copies of this ordered from Best Buy.
It was the only thing I could think of to buy before reward certificates I had were going to expire.
Just hope I remember to cancel 2 of them.......

Seriously. I can believe some skepticism, but the pivot to "just buy the newest NVIDIA card" was a bit transparent.

The phrase that stood out to me was "and by that we mean you'll want at least a GeForce RTX GPU."

At least? What is currently more powerful than an RTX GPU?

I don't have an RTX card. I have a GTX 1070. My CPU and memory is older and I can't upgrade to the DDR4 because my motherboard won't support them and I just don't have it me to build another PC.

So I am hoping that good enough to enjoy the game.
