@efesell:There definitely was a patch because apart from the above mentioned example where it was really hard to not notice I also have not encountered tons and tons of them lying around everywhere the way reviewers talked about pre-release. I like it so far. Saved by Bruce Kenobi. I seriously thought I stepped through a time portal into 2004 and was playing Halo 2 on Xbox Live and some teenagers were screaming at me. Especially now that everyone is going to think this is PT and they need to try to preserve that going forward to the PS7 and they can sell their account later and blah blah blah. It just brings the whole experience down. I'd like to see CP2077 through, but likely not until multiple patch passes, acquisition of a current gen console and a steep discount. They could've spent more time fleshing out other areas of future culture/tech. But that takes a gentler touch than Cyberpunk was able to accomplish while putting out so many fires it seems. I mean the ads are shitty and gross. None of that is explored in depth, if at all. Cyberpunk 2077 unfortunately leaves me with this question; did they take 8 years to make some weird outlet for their "trigger the libs" jokes? Entities change.Cyberpunk 2077 unfortunately leaves me with this question; did they take 8 years to make some weird outlet for their "trigger the libs" jokes? 17 section 1 of the Market Abuse Regulation inside information. It's fine to enjoy a thing with issues, but maybe consider taking a moment to hear what the objections are before just saying it's all good. I disagree with his take on Cyberpunk as a video game, but it would be insanity to deny it's a technical mess and CDPR has made a serious of bad decisions on how to manage the situation they've put themselves in. If that's not taking the violence all the way I don't know what is. So in order to make things right and honor CDPR's pledge to honor refunds, they almost have to delist the game. I haven't had any major issues. than anything. I mean, it's not really offensive compared to other stuff, but walking into a room and a simple painting of two dicks on the wall? To echo the rest of the posts, I'm less offended and more just, like, embarrassed on behalf of CDPR. Is it horribly offensive and racist? Like the barrage of text messages and calls from people you've never met about cars, the "offensive" advertisements are all just white noise. Look how far Gamespot has fallen since then. GiantBomb, literally seconds after embargo, says Cyberpunk is very undercooked. While I'm glad that she's just a character that gets to exist who isn't solely defined by her identity, it's odder when she's one of two trans characters I met (the other being a random NPC conversation.). So....this means that the next patch for the game I won't get, right? I shot a barrel and it blew a woman in half, there were intestines flopping out of the bottom of her torso. I’m going to be honest with you, writing this newsletter is the hardest damn thing I ever had to do at this job. Fingers crossed, I'm hoping nothing completely breaks further in. It feels like these uber fans are treating the game's release like an election. I know 2020 is the year of time travel, but it feels like this saga has been going on for months at this point. @ragnar_mike: I agree that the posters and generally the “fake advertising” of this world is a huge detriment and actively works against it. Ms should not follow suit. You will still get updates. Ken Leung's performance on HBO's Industry is a good example of subverting this trope of the repressed, internal Asian male as you get to know his character a bit more and realize how much he's actively playing into that stereotype to suit the needs of UK investment banking. It's not always as easy as just replacing one texture with another (there might be specific lighting designed around some of the posters and video screens and there can be other stuff tied to them in surprising ways, such as scripting in cut scenes) but it's been done before. Wow... @frytup: Definitely, this has been an issue since 2013 when the new consoles first supported patches larger than a few MB. While reading Altered Carbon the novel and later watching the show, I had the same thought I do when playing Cyberpunk in that the creative director is a 12 year old boy coming up with really "cool" ideas. I wasn't offended by any of it, though the "Bottoms Up" ad made me do a doubletake. How would this even make sense in the game world? To me, it feels like a looter-shooter where you pick a weapon up and if its stats are good, I take it and use it. Do not view the below image if you are avoiding possible spoilers. I’m always surprised by people thinking this is a racist and tired idea when it’s basically real life. Really? It's disturbing how casually CDPR leveraged trans fetishization, and for what? your ass gets delisted. That said, I am conflicted about it because in a way, I kind of like some of what it adds to the atmosphere. Even if you aren't personally offended by anything in this game, there's plenty of content that I think just about anyone with the least bit of social awareness should be able to recognize as potentially offensive. There's a difference between having questionable content within context and just endorsing said content. It's like this entire future world is just obsessed with fucking and all the tech and cybernetic advancement seems to mostly be in service of that singular purpose - or shooting things. @humanity: I remember the drawer full of dildos! So congrats CDPR, you pissed off trans people, some trans allies, and accidentally dog whistled to the shittiest parts of the internet for... some of the most superfluous, basic, and lazy "commentary" I've ever seen in a game (and that's saying something, considering games.) I don't mind the writing a whole lot and haven't really encountered anything awful. A throwaway poster. He was on my way to the main missions so I hit him. The only thing I want to hear about after this is managers being yeeted out the door for this entire mess. Click to expand... 24k dislikes on their video. Oct 25, 2017 25,835 Midwest. So that criticism of the Gamespot reviewer - seems to be justified. I did initially raise an eyebrow over them labeling a Haitian/Creole gang as "The Voodoo Boys". I have heard that the story does come with a couple of nuggets of hope, but put your hand in an open flame and I guess it doesn't hurt after 20 hours? There may have been another, but I don't remember off the top of my head anything as 'bad'. They ripped KFC out of Crazy Taxi. They pull this but not fallout 76 which was not only worse but had monetization? It also has racial stereotypes (as others have mentioned) and just treats a lot of subject matter callously. I think that the game is careless and often very tone deaf towards its issue, but not malicious in this manner. Jeff Gerstmann is one of the two guys in … A cyberpunk fps action rpg open world is practically serving it up on a platter to Jeff. I get the vibe that lately Sony was seeming like the bad guys with people because of the refusal to offer refunds. I've been to the dumps and to the rich downtown highrise and the ads are all the same. Let people buy the game and enjoy it on at least 2 xbox platforms. This is especially the case if you like the challenge of playing on Very Hard, where the difficulty is ramped up to its most extreme. Game » This is 100% a big “fuck you” from Sony to CDPR. Like I enjoy Hannibal but I'm not going out stanning canabalism. seven or so hours now, but what I feel so far is that there's not going to be a lot of upgrading for weaponry. "Oh, you want us to give people refunds? My honest reaction to every piece of "shocking" media in the game was, "really?" They could easily fix the posters if they wanted to. Honestly, I can't really blame Sony here. Absolutely the move to make if CDPR decided to tell consumers to just go to where they bought it to get refunds. Seriously. Cartman called Kyle a Jew.No one talks about The New Colossus because it's message was clear; you need to be anti-racist. It's happening LIVE right now! A clip of Giant Bomb and their opinion on Cyberpunk 2077 has been circulating on Reddit in the last few hours. That is fine. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake. Altered Carbon at least asks more interesting questions, even if how they answer them is shallow or completely ignored. jeez, the nuclear option, thats unexpected. @bigsocrates: Yah it would be nice if it had any sort of depth to it but for the most part it is just Saints Row 3 humor interjected into an ostensibly serious game which is why it's so jarring at times. Just another game where they blast ableist, transphobic, and eye-rolling cultural stereotypical language. I just don't see the need for ethnic gangs in 2077, especially when such things play into stereotypes about minorities as criminals, and for some reason there's no Mafia gang or Russian gang (though the Scavs have some Soviet origins, but other identities too.) It's less the casting or even the performance so much as the direction that feels questionable. Worth noting that in both of these cases, it was the developer/publisher that pulled the game - not the platform holder. Whoa. Two questions that pop into my head here: 1) Under what conditions will Sony re-list the game, or will CDPR escalate and say "Well, screw you, we never wanted to be in the Sony ecosystem anyway" and pull all their games? The accent stuff I dunno about. Really? If this game attempted to deliver a meaningful message about any of this, it would be easier to forgive, but instead, it mostly just comes off as 4chan humor. Also as a tangent/side note -- it is SO WEIRD seeing "A Red Ventures Company" in the website footer. Oh well. Then you have stuff like I mentioned above, and other instances in side gigs and such that just make you go "...huh?". Haha. Good on Sony for stepping in. Trying to get out the things I dislike so far. The Tyger Claws are much less interesting as a gang than the Animals or Malestrom. I guess that first Cyberpunk 2077 cover art was bad - Cyberpunk 2077 - Giant Bomb. The most disappointing thing that kneecapped this game, in the 8 years where they had this game in mind, was that they never took the time and responsibility to write something that pushes back against that language. I ultimately think this is sort of emblematic of a larger issue with the game as a whole (it doesn't really explore any element of its setting, it just thrusts something unusual in front of you, goes "ain't that weird", gives you some Street Cred, and moves on without analysis, commentary, or exporation), but with the more adult aspects of the setting it comes off extremely callous. But it's also lazy and boring. For one thing, I think it's worth pointing out that something being offensive is, at the core of it, an extremely personal thing. This process takes no more than a few hours and we'll There were a few instances where I couldn't pick up an item for some reason. Which parts? Oh, definitely. Literally anything else would be an improvement. @nodima: Eh Takemura at least doesn't change much in that regard. So, kinda feels like they just went nuclear here. Sony didn't so they had to slap this together. Because I was offended but it's also incredibly lazy. It's also a great example of how many different people were involved in the writing, because I find a lot of the stuff with pretty much every more intricate and involved relationship V has to be quite good, and there are side quests and main quests that are right up there with Witcher 3 in terms of writing. , they almost have to delist the game and enjoy, friends still the.
