Looks like you'll grab a vehicle for specific purposes, but maybe own a sports car you can deck out. I'm okay with that.

Yeah I'm liking what I see in this regards. I'm a sucker for open world games with lots of driving.

That's exactly what I thought. I cancelled my preorder for the PC as I'm getting the PS5 and I'll wait (not because of anything other than just not enough time)

I'm not sure how you go about moving through a vast open city as a criminal without looking like GTA. The alternative is fast travel between locked down set pieces.

It looks like they've tried to make every car unique... but that smells like fiction or marketing fluff. It would take a lot of effort to randomize each car with different varieties of panels and jankiness and not just color schemes... but that seems like what they tried to do.

I've now got an extra 3 weeks, minimum, to binge on Assassin's Creed Valhalla (and maybe Watch Dogs Legion, if I'm not over it by then).

Time and tide melt the snowman.

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 wish companies would just skip consoles and go PC only like the old days. Either you were PC company or a console company. Or at least do it that way again. That way if its on console I dont have to worry with it or keep up with it or look forward to it.

They can't, at least not with AAA games. Average budgets now are a dozen times what they were back in the days of the PC/console divide, and that's adjusted for inflation. A $10 million dollar game in the early 2000s is around $120 million now. They can't spend that money and then only sell to a fraction of the customers who want to give them money, especially when one big budget game flopping - just one - can cause a company to close.

If you want the PC exclusives, follow the indies and small studios.

They're just doing it to screw over the Mechwarrior 5 expansion :lol:

I still have to blow 5 days of vacation at some point before the end of the year, but Dec 10 may put this release out to beyond my older daughter's school year, so she'll be around and in my hair if I take the time off. Boo.

Cool. I was sweating the possibility that you guys would be staring at a blank wall for days if for some reason the game didn't release on time, has game breaking bugs, or just plain sucketh. :P

I guess my real question is why is THIS game so much more anticipated by OO (in general I think) than other games? What about it makes you want to take days off from work?

Yes, I'm lazy and want to be spoonfed the answer thankyouverymuch.

I did, but maybe it was not the right videos (or maybe they were very early ones). I love the setting. I love(d) Blade Runner (loved the second one even more :wub: ).

I seriously think it could be that I am so spoiled by big budget modern games that it's hard to wow me anymore. :confusion-shrug: But obviously I missed the thing that everyone else sees (not just here, apparently the gaming market writ large) that will potentially make this such an amazing game. Yes, it looks fun as hell, etc etc. But so do tons of other modern games that release on the regular.

This makes no sense mate. Firstly, I'm pretty sure the console market is larger than the PC (gaming) market. Secondly the architectures are similar enough now that there's no point declaring yourself a PC or console dev.

Well, the very first thing they told us about the game was that it would be coming when it's ready. At least they're still on track to keep that promise.

In another 'humans don't deserve to exist' story.....

Cyberpunk 2077 devs are getting death threats over the delay
Sadly, if predictably, this has led to a whole lot of flak being sent towards individual developers, with Senior game designer Andrzej Zawadzki taking to Twitter to push back against "unacceptable" death threats.
I want to address one thing in regards of the @CyberpunkGame delay.
I understand you're feeling angry, disappointed and want to voice your opinion about it.
However, sending death threats to the developers is absolutely unacceptable and just wrong. We are people, just like you.

Wow, that's terrible. They're developers, and one of the more trustworthy. I'd rather have delays than a buggy game. At least they're honest and upfront about why they've had to delay.

Part of the blame lies at the feet of that bellend from Kotaku, Jason something. He seems to be on a personal vendetta against CDPR.

He's not even with Kotaku anymore. He moved on to Bloomberg, I believe. I think the issue is about crunch, but then that's not a studio specific issue, but rather an industry one.

And it wasn't even what's usually considered 'crunch.' It's paid overtime for a few weeks when they had no choice. The crunch controversy was about 16 hour days for months without extra pay as a matter of course.

Precisely. So why said bellend continues to rant about CDPR specifically, I don't know. It's widely known how bad the crunch culture is across the entire games development industry.

It might depend on the studio, but to me it sounds like that's exactly what it was, a push towards the finish where the developers have to bend over backwards to meet a deadline, and when that happens most studios don't leave it up to choice. I think that it's unfortunately something all studios employ to different degrees. It doesn't even seem like the worst case this time, but I find it a little funny at the shock and outrage everytime a game is close to coming out when we learn about the hours towards the finish line, as if we always learn that they're doing this for the first time.

It's all in how it's handled. Personally, I can't think of a business that I've ever worked in where a 'big event' couldn't result in mandatory overtime. I still think that's a far cry from the horror stories that made this an issue - people seeing their families once a week, sleeping at work, and doing so for the last six months of the development cycle. Not because the deadlines got close and their planning was a bit off, but because they intended it to be that way from the beginning. That's just not what I'm seeing reported here.

Agreed. This is a far cry from crunch culture. And yeah, I've had a few times in my career when I was living at work because something went south. This feels really overblown. And seriously, death threats because your video game is going to be a few weeks later? People suck.

I guess Im not educated enough to ever to have had a job where the company forces mandatory overtime of 12 hour days 7 days a week for months and you sleep under your desk and stuff. Not saying CDPR is doing that but Ive read over the years of other devs doing that and worse.

I love CDPR though and their games. Hope they are handling crunch better than most. Personally it should be gotten rid of. Horrible practice. Just take more time ...more normal hours time.
