There is a Cyberpunk RED thread in Traditional Games

Cyberpunk 2077 Epileptic PSA | gameinformer.com posted:

The animation got altered in an early patch.

When "suiting up" for a BD, especially with Judy, V will be given a headset that is meant to onset the instance. The headset fits over both eyes and features a rapid onslaught of white and red blinking LEDs, much like the actual device neurologists use in real life to trigger a seizure when they need to trigger one for diagnosis purposes. If not modeled off of the IRL design, it's a very spot-on coincidence, and because of that this is one aspect that I would personally advise you to avoid altogether. When you notice the headset come into play, look away completely or close your eyes. This is a pattern of lights designed to trigger an epileptic episode and it very much did that in my own personal playthrough.

For more on epilepsy and how to protect yourself, you can check out more right here through the Epilepsy Foundation to learn more. You can also check out our interview with Microsoft to see how they are tackling neurological episodes such as this.

Cyberpunk 2077 is an FPP Action Adventure with RPG mechanics in which you can talk to interesting people in interesting places and make decisions.

Decisions such as "should I shoot this enemy or incapacitate them?", and "maybe I should just stab this enemy instead", or perhaps "should I make this enemy shoot this other enemy?", and of course "am I a bad person if I make this enemy shoot themselves?".

You will make many such decisions throughout the game.

Everything we know about Cyberpunk 2077 | GOG.com posted:

Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware (in 11 slots; Frontal Cortex, Ocular System, Circulatory System, Immune System, Nervous System, Integumentary System, Operating System, Skeleton, Hands, Arms, and Legs), skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.

Become a cyberpunk, an urban mercenary equipped with cybernetic enhancements and build your legend on the streets of Night City.

Enter the massive open world of Night City, a place that sets new standards in terms of visuals, complexity and depth.

Take the riskiest job of your life and go after a prototype implant that is the key to immortality.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

In contrast to previous CD PROJEKT RED games, Cyberpunk 2077 is an FPP game. This lets you immerse yourself fully in the game’s world, and makes using all the weapons provided to your character much easier, and satisfying, to use.

The arsenal V can use in Cyberpunk 2077 is huge! Revolvers, machine guns, shotguns, pistols, knives, swords – you name it! 12 corporations produce weapons distributed on Night City’s streets – from top tier arms from Arasaka, to Rostovic products that almost anyone can afford. As for types of weaponry, you can choose from power weapons, tech weapons, smart weapons (with guided ammunition), and melee weapons (along with razor-sharp katanas). In many cases, once you’ll find your favorite arms’ type, it’s up to you to customize its parameters.

The same diversity applies to vehicles you’ll encounter in Night City. 12 car manufacturers will supply V with cars. This includes luxurious Herrera and Rayfield vehicles to middle-tier cars from ThorTon, and even small, cheap cars from Makigai. It’s already confirmed that one of the game’s best cars will be a 1977 Porsche 911 owned previously by Johnny Silverhand. Natural born rebels can chase the wind with motorcycles from Yaiba or Arch (a real-live company owned by Keanu Reeves). There are also military vehicles from Arasaka and Militech corporations, but getting behind the wheel of one of them may prove quite the challenge!

As we already mentioned, another one of Cyberpunk 2077's important features is cybernetic enhancements, which can turn your body into a killing machine. Cyberware can modify your character’s stats, with two important limitations – how much your body can take in, and how much your wallet can give out. Cyberware also gives our hero a gate to Braindance, a sort of personal version of the net. Thanks to it, you can not only indulge yourself in virtual reality pleasures but also access other people’s memories in extreme cases.



You mentioned something about being a cyberpunk. What's that about?







Alright, so you're a cyberpunk, and you're in Night City. But where's that?

Well, before we go into that, it's probably better to talk a little bit about the world the game is set in.

Cyberpunk 2077 is based on Cyberpunk 2020 - a tabletop roleplaying game designed by Mike Pondsmith and sold by R Talsorian Games. The setting of Cyberpunk goes all the way from the start of the 20th century and up to the 2070's. That's a lot of lore to read about, but here I'll try to collect some highlights that I think are especially relevant to the game's story:

A selective timeline | cyberpunk.fandom.com posted:

1996
• The Event known as The Collapse begins.

2022
• The Fourth Corporate War begins.

2023
Nuclear device detonated in the Arasaka Towers facility, much of central Night City destroyed.
• Over a half million people are killed. Another quarter million die in the resulting aftermath.

Start of Night City Reconstruction.

2035-2049

Rebuilding of old factories and old tech begins to be replaced, New Corps begin to rise.
• Events of Cyberpunk Red take place.

2054
• Oct.12: V is born

2062
Haiti officially abandoned after a series of vicious storms.

2069

2070

2077
• The events of the game take place.



So that is the world the game takes place in. Now let's zoom in on Night City - a metropolis located in the Free State of Northern California:









That's a pretty big city (and that map doesn't even include the Badlands). Let's take a closer look at the city's districts:



The World of Cyberpunk 2077 posted:

CITY CENTER
About fifty years ago this place was a ruined battlefield, still smoldering after the climax of the
Fourth Corporate War, when a nuke was detonated on floor 120 of the Arasaka Towers.
After years of rebuilding and reconstruction, City Center was restored to its former glory and
is once again the seat of Night City's financial and economic power.

WATSON
Watson used to be a place to live and thrive. During the time of Rebuilding the Watson district had it all.

It all ended when Saburo Arasaka came back to Night City after the Unification War.
Saburo's lawyers and bankers finished off his competitors here--one and all.

That's when Watson changed. A lot of people became unemployed, and Arasaka took over the Watson Waterfront.

HEYWOOD
Heywood is a neighborhood of contrasts. The northern part is modern and well maintained.
Further to the south and east the district is visibly poorer and more dangerous. This is where
gangs like the Valentinos and 6th Street run their businesses - legal and illegal alike.

PACIFICA
The idea was to make money on tourism. Investors poured massive sums into
a project in an attempt to turn the poor southern suburbs of Night City into
a booming tourist resort.

Then came 2069 and the Unification War... Most investors withdrew their funding
and abandoned Pacifica. This left thousands of people without a place to go.

Then, in an unprecedented act of civil initiative the Voodoo Boys unified the locals
to create a new Creole community in Pacifica.

WESTBROOK
These are the residences of the rich and powerful situated on the hillside of North Oak.
Charter Hill, the promised land for all ambitious mid-level corporate employees.
Lastly, Japantown, the entertainment center of Night City.

Parts of Westbrook adjacent to City Center suffered during the Nuke Incident in 2023, and
for the next twenty years crumbling skyscrapers haunted the landscape.

Then came the Rebuilding in 2040. Asian corporations began to erect new megabuildings,
restoring Japantown to its former glory.

SANTO DOMINGO
Santo Domingo is one of Night City's oldest districts. Its unique location saved
it from destruction during the Fourth Corporate War.

Divided into two subdistricts, Arroyo and Rancho Coronado, Santo Domingo is
subject to constant change. Various corporations are continually buying and
selling land for new investements, and demolishing old factories and warehouses.
Construction sites are guarded by corporate security forces - supported by drones.

THE BADLANDS
Not an official district of Night City, the Badlands are home to the Nomads.

Nomads emerged as a seperate caste of society during the collpase at the end of the previous century. The global crises caused by worldwide financial meltdown had resulted in an estimated one quarter of the US population becoming homeless.
It was then that groups of refugess began to move from one city to another in search for a better life. These people eventually came to be known as Nomads.

The Nomads are divided into families, clans, tribes, and nations. Families can be as few as two people to as many as one hundred. A clan can range from a few hundred to over a thousand members. Tribes are much larges, consisting of several tens of thousands of people.
Nomads are expected to contribute to their society from a very early age.
Nomads today are divided into Seven Nations and Raffen Shiv. As the name suggests, the Seven Nations are comprised of seven different groups, each with a single respected leader. Raffen Shiv are outlaws and outcast from Nomad society, and do not form a single nation.
Robberies, ambushes, and raids performed by various Raffen Shiv gangs are often reported by victims as "Nomad attacks", and are the reason that innocent Nomads are sometimes greeted with a negative response.







Night City has many "factions". In this game the big guys are the corporations. Their influence is everywhere, and they can make life very difficult for anyone who crosses them. In Cyberpunk 2077 we'll be able to see:























But these are all faceless mega-conglomerates! What about the people?

















Alright, alright. I get there's a lot of lore. What about the main character?





Everything we know about Cyberpunk 2077 | GOG.com posted:

In Cyberpunk 2077, our hero is highly customizable. Apart from his or her appearance, along with details like eyes and hair color, body shape, or tattoos, we can select our character’s Lifepath from the three distinct options available. Our choice will not only affect the character’s stats and traits but also will give them a unique narrative background.



When you create your character you'll be able to choose between two body types (seen above).
V will be voiced by Gavin Drea, and by Cherami Leigh.
Your character's gender will be tied to the voice pack you take.


While creating your character you'll also be presented with a choice of lifepath to take:






Your lifepath will determine where you start the game. It will also influence some conversations.

Everything we know about Cyberpunk 2077 | GOG.com posted:

• If you choose the Nomad Lifepath, the hero will come to Night City from the polluted Badlands, where independence and resourcefulness are top qualities.
• If you decide on the Streetkid Lifepath, the main character will know more about life on Night City’s crime-infested streets.
• Finally, if your choice is the Corporate Lifepath, you’ll be skilled in the subtle art of intrigue, honed in the corridors of the Arasaka megacorporation.

When creating your character you will also have to decide how to distribute your points between the game's 5 main attributes;

Character Attributes Guide | nightcity.gg posted:

Body
The Body Attribute modifies Shotguns, Two-Handed, Melee, and Athletics skills.

Intelligence
The Intelligence Attribute modifies the Device Hacking and Target Hacking skills.

Reflexes
The Reflexes Attribute modifies Handguns, Rifles, and Blades skills.

Technical Ability
The Technical Ability Attribute modifies Crafting and Engineering skills.

Cool
The Cool Attribute modifies Assassination, Nerve, and Sniper Rifles skills.

For a full breakdown of Attributes/Skills/Perks: https://www.purecyberpunk.com/gameinfo/attributes-skills-and-perks/


And of course, you'll be able to cuztomize the looks of your character. In the game you will have the choice of:

quote:

6 skin types. 35 hairstyles. 17 eyes. 8 eyebrows. 17 mouths. 17 jaws. 17 ears. 9 cyberware. 10 scars. 7 facial tattoos. 12 piercing. 5 sets of teeth. 8 eye makeup. 6 lip makeup. 3 blemish types. 3 nipple types. 3 breast sizes. 5 body tattoos. 2 body scars. 2 penis types (or none). 3 penis sizes. 1 vagina type (or none). 5 pubic hair types.

Oh boy, that's a lot of options. You can also be a ken/barbie doll, if that's your thing.



The game's soundtrack is full of original songs specially made for the game. The OST is almost completely electronic.

The artists that we already know about are: A$AP Rocky, COS and CONWAY, Deadly Hunta, Gazelle Twin, Grimes, Ilan Rubin, Nina Kraviz, Rat Boy, Raney Shockne, Refused, Richard Devine, Run the Jewels, Tina Guo, HEALTH, Let’s Eat Grandma, Sophie, and Shygirl.

Refused will also be making the music for Keanu's character - Johnny Silverhand.

We named all the quests after the "prologue" after song titles, mostly stuff we imagined that Johnny might have liked or been influenced by (and era appropriate to the alt-history).

Edit: Was playing around with it a little bit and it is pretty impressive. You go into camera mode in game then hit a button to go into this free cam mode. It lets you set time of day, adjust to any position, and you can move forward in time one frame at a time to get that perfect shot.

PC Gamer | 78/100 posted:

Some nice characters and stories nested in an astounding open world, undercut by jarring bugs at every turn.

It's the kind of game I'd upgrade for though, because Cyberpunk is a technical stunner and seeing your friends in high definition is worth the ask. Sure, The Witcher 3 was funnier, more clever and subversive, with better dialogue on the whole, but I’m taken by how relentlessly hopeful Cyberpunk is. Its exploration of a technocapitalist future relies heavily on genre tropes, with everyone from punks to dirty cops playing the part established way back in William Gibson's Neuromancer. But Cyberpunk 2077 remains a loving, faithful treatment of the genre, and one that constantly urged me to look for the silver lining in every poo poo-soaked gutter.

Even if you can nosedive V into a life of crime and greed, the repercussions highlight what's possible in the relief of what you reject in favor of power and money. Cyberpunk 2077 is a game about close relationships, or if you're roleplaying a more coldhearted type, seeing what life is like at the top without them.

I found it moving and life-affirming in the final moments, even in the face of near certain death and a relentless onslaught of bugs. I suppose it's an appropriate thematic throughline though: Cyberpunk 2077 is a game about V coming apart at the seams, in a city coming apart at the seams, in a game coming apart at the seams. Play it in a few months.

gameinformer | 9/10 posted:

The wait is worth it for CD Projekt Red's next open-world RPG, but it's an uneven playthrough that shines in particular areas and struggles in others.

Gamespot | 7/10 posted:

The Good
• There's plenty of flexibility in the RPG mechanics to build a character to suit your desired playstyle
• Quickhacking combat is satisfying to execute and turns combat scenarios into elaborate puzzles
• Side quests and characters provide the most interesting and human moments in the game
• Keanu Reeves' Johnny Silverhand adds dimension to nearly every quest, forcing you to rethink your decision-making instincts

The Bad
• There's so much to do that isn't meaningful, so a lot of it ends up feeling superfluous
• Superficial and often "edgy" aesthetic choices often have no real purpose, which makes them grating rather than adding anything relevant to the world
• The incorporation of different cultures and backgrounds is wildly inconsistent, from good to inaccurate to downright offensive
• The main story doesn't cohere with the rest of the game, with an urgency that's at odds with everything else
• Technical issues, from visual bugs to full-on crashes, are so pervasive that it's impossible to ignore

PCGamesN | 9/10 posted:

Groundbreaking, but not quite as much as you're hoping it is. Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't surpass its brilliant influences, but in Night City, Johnny Silverhand, and its chilling vision of hyper-capitalism, it claims territory of its own.

SCREEN RANT | 4/5 posted:

Cyberpunk 2077 is ultimately a game that is tailor-made for multiple playthroughs. The more skills V unlocks and the deeper they sink into the conspiracies of Night City, the more it becomes clear that this is a game which fans will happily sink their time into, well past the relatively short main campaign. CD Projekt Red assembled a collection of the finest open-world mechanics we've already seen, and most of them work well. Ultimately, it feels like Cyberpunk 2077 is a fitting bookend for the previous generation of games and a strong starting point for current-gen. Now it's time to start innovating again.

IGN | 90/100 posted:

Cyberpunk 2077 kicks you into its beautiful and dazzlingly dense cityscape with few restrictions. It offers a staggering amount of choice in how to build your character, approach quests, and confront enemies, and your decisions can have a tangible and natural-feeling impact on both the world around you and the stories of the people who inhabit it. Those stories can be emotional, funny, dark, exciting, and sometimes all of those things at once. The main quest may be shorter than expected when taken on its own and it’s not always clear what you need to do to make meaningful changes to its finale, but the multitude of side quests available almost from the start can have a surprisingly powerful effect on the options you have when you get there. It’s a shame that frustratingly frequent bugs can occasionally kill an otherwise well-set mood, but Cyberpunk 2077’s impressively flexible design makes it a truly remarkable RPG.

rpgsite.net | 9/10 posted:

When Cyberpunk's grim setting and mix of gameplay systems land, it is a powerfully impressive experience - sprawling, dense, clever, witty, and most importantly drat good fun. Other times, it has all the charm of a moody, edgy teenager.

GamesBeat | 3/5 posted:

The problem is that the world of Cyberpunk 2077 suggests so much possibility. The megabuildings that make up the city’s skyline suggests vast interior spaces that don’t really exist. Merchants with a finite number of eurodollars suggests a simulated economy that isn’t in the game. The bustling streets suggests the potential for emergent story moments that almost never really happen.

A lot of the game is just there to look good. And that’s fine — but it means I don’t want to spend a lot of time wandering around the world. If the environment primarily exists to look dope in the background while I’m doing the quests, then I’ll probably mostly stick to the main story, see what happens, and then bounce. It’s fine to make a game like that — for many, that’s the promise of Cyberpunk 2077. It just wasn’t the promise to me.

Polygon posted:

I can’t deny that Night City wowed me with its scale, its verticality, and its sense of history. But I wish I could see people like me on its streets as something more than objects. I wish that the game’s politics were more radical. Yes, I know I shouldn’t look to a colossal game that was itself produced under exploitative labor conditions to lead the charge of anticapitalist liberation, but I wish the sparks of Johnny Silverhand’s ideological rage got to burn brighter, that Cyberpunk 2077 felt more interested in envisioning new futures than in reminiscing over bygone glories. Neither its gameplay nor its narrative can imagine the bold possibilities that I find so central to the best of cyberpunk. But what it does offer is visions of people trying to make do and get by in a world that’s trying to eat them alive, and sometimes those people get by with a little help from their friends. It’s not the revolution I hoped for, but it’s something.

PCWorld posted:

CD Projekt Red had the weight of the world on its shoulders, but Cyberpunk 2077 delivers. I can’t think of a single significant complaint. The game looks gorgeous, sounds luscious, and hits you in the feels just as hard as Witcher 3. The deep and incredibly flexible character customization options should provide ample replayability—something you couldn’t say about Witcher—especially when paired with the wide array of meaningful story decisions you can make. [Impressions]

Eurogamer posted:

The biggest shame there, so far, is that so much is locked away so deep in the skill trees. The worry is that you'll get too far through the story to fully enjoy even a narrow, specialised slice of what Cyberpunk offers, let alone the whole thing. For now, combat feels limited. The guns are serviceable, and melee is fun in a slightly sickening way, but very simple - think The Elder Scrolls, but even simpler: a weapon in just the one hand. The sense is I'm a good way into Cyberpunk 2077 but still waiting for its systems to really open up.

Vice posted:

Cyberpunk 2077 represents a return to CD Projekt's development roots: it's a faithful adaptation of a relatively obscure work—R. Talsorian’s Cyberpunk tabletop RPG series, in this case—executed without restraint and with wildly varying levels of success and competence.

Engadget posted:

Despite some world-building and consistency issues, the acting and writing in Cyberpunk 2077 is outstanding, and gameplay is endlessly entertaining. So far, Cyberpunk 2077 is worth the wait.

The Verge posted:

Like the setting, though, most of these features feel borrowed from other, more thoughtfully constructed games. Cyberpunk 2077 areas have shortcut doors that high-tech or high-strength players can unlock, but not the clever puzzle-box design you’d find in Deus Ex or Dishonored. You can choose to kill enemies or incapacitate them, but beyond a thread of missions where you have to bring targets in alive, this option barely affected my gameplay style or character interactions.

Kotaku posted:

Separated from its marketing, hype, and expectations, so far Cyberpunk 2077 just feels like a huge, scope-ambitious video game, with tons of attention paid to its lore and scenery and lots of dramatic things to do. It’s not the best game I’ve ever played, as so many fans seem to hope it will be. Despite the controversy that’s swirled around it and its own missteps, it hasn’t yet inspired me to immediately consign it to the trash heap of retrograde video game poo poo. In many ways, it feels like it’s about itself—its genre and source materials, the work that went into it, the flexibility it wants to give the player—from its character creator to its in-the-moment play. Saying “it’s just a video game” doesn’t quite explain what I find compelling about it, nor what I find complicated. But after all the hype, and despite a certain disappointment of my own hopes, I’m also relieved to find that it’s just a video game. I’m ready to escape the years of being told what Cyberpunk is and find out what it is for myself, as I imagine many of you reading are too. We’ll see what it turns out to be for me, and I’m curious to find out what it turns out to be for you.

Goon Reviews

deep dish peat moss posted:

I played for about 5 and a half hours and just beat the Prologue I guess? (got to act 2)

I had zero hype for the game going in so here are some hot takes free from the hype train:

Game is overall good/fun, I'm enjoying it and will keep playing it but I'm not hooked to the screen or anything here.

Not much open world stuff to do and most of it is pretty bland (a map marker where when you show up there are three enemies standing around that aren't aggressive until you shoot one of them in the head is a pretty common activity)

Of those 5.5 hours probably 3 of them have just been spent sitting back in my chair watching things happen but there are dumb button prompts you have to press constantly to progress through what are essentially cutscenes, and lots of timed dialog options, so getting up to do something else while watching a cutscene isn't really possible. I

The gunplay is okay. Nothing to write home about, not offensively bad either. It feels sort of... sluggish?

There's waaaaaay too much loot and most of it is meaningless and only exists to be disassembled to get generically named "components" that are used for a bad crafting system. You end up wearing dumb clownsuits constantly like hotpants with a military flak jacket and helmet.

The character progression system sucks. Like, it's really bad. None of the abilities are cool or interesting ("Get more components from disassembling", "gain 2% movespeed for 10 seconds after killing an enemy", "reload time reduced by 10%"), it feels like there are no noticeable changes as skills or attributes level up. I'm level 8 and haven't bothered to open the character menu to spend any of my points since level 4 because there's just no point, it won't make me any more effective at what I do. Hopefully this changes later. The guns all feel identical and the most I've looked at the stats is sorting them by DPS and picking the best one

Lots of detail in the environments and just walking around looking at things has been the best part :shrug: There's lots of world building and it's exciting to keep walking around to learn more about the past of Night City. There just aren't many ways to interact with it.

Keanu's character is extremely annoying.

KaptainKrunk posted:

Cyberpunk has best in-class world design, character design (especially NPC variety), sound design, music, and cinematic "immersion." I don't think anyone can reasonably contest those things with any level of objectivity.

The writing is fine, but really no better or worse than Rockstar Stuff. It's serviceable, but the voice actors, animators (Jali does a ton of work here), and designers of the characters really bear a lot more responsibility for bringing them to life than the dialogue. The animations outside of cinematics are good enough. The gunplay is solid but obviously no one expects it to feel as good as top FPS games, so it's not a huge problem. Driving is ok (worse on PC) but not up to Rockstar standards.

Where the game falters is in its choice and consequence, loot, open world interactivity and reactivity, AI, balance, enemy variety and encounter design; more or less everything operating under the hood:
- C&C is pretty limited compared to TW3; from my recollection, you have the endings and the lead-up (which can be reloaded and changed rather easily), the Maelstrom mission, the Voodoo Boys mission, Woodman, and the Parade but there might be a few more.
- There's a good amount of hand-placed loot that is cool, but most of the loot is very borderlands and just exists to be vendor trash. There are also WAY too many medkits everywhere.
- Open world interactivity: very few side activities, no way to decorate or buy apartments, customize cars, customize your character/get a hair cut. These are minor, but there's no gang reputation system (I kill a poo poo load of moxes or tyger claws but no one cares?), the open world AI driving, reacting, and police AI is borderline non-functional.
- Besides the aforementioned open world AI, the combat AI frequently breaks. I feel like I should be getting shot more frequently on very hard, but enemies will often just run up to me without firing.
- AI has no way of dealing with all the OP poo poo you have; quickhacking range is too far; weapons are too useful even when not specced in them; and you get enough perks (which tilt too much towards % changes) that you can essentially be good at everything except one thing. Melee is too avoidable. There's almost NO challenge after the first 3-4 hours.
- Enemy variety is lack luster, which is a huge downgrade from TW3. We fight humans and drones. The cyberpsychos should have their own unique fighting style but are mostly variations of regular AI enemies. All of the gangs fight the same. There aren't enough netrunners and they use like 2 abilities?

All the latter 'game' stuff definitely feels rushed, with maybe two passes when it needed three or four.

Zephro posted:

Spoiler-free low-effort review: I enjoyed this computer or video game. I was lucky enough to not really see any bugs except for my car once bugging out a bit when I drove it very fast into a concrete wall, and one I think I've mentioned before where sometimes if you're carrying unconscious bodies and drop them it plays a gibbing sound and you get huge bloodstains all over the floor for no discernible reason.

Apart from that I thought Night City was a gorgeous setting. Side missions were mostly pretty good and many of them were lovely small-to-medium size doses of Deus Ex style level design. One thing I appreciated was that there was often fairly little handholding or telegraphing, which means that when you find an alternate way to do something, it's all the more rewarding. I'm aware not everyone likes that, but I do. All of that was then wrapped around a high-tech pulp-fiction main plot that was Really Pretty Good.

It has some gamey elements. (Possibly because it's a video game). Personally I found they didn't detract from my enjoyment.

Anyway, in conclusion,

Distraction - A Bruce Sterling novel. Appears to be out of print, so it'll have to be :filez::

Simone Magus posted:

Most cyberpunk writers get hyper focused on the neon, the grime, the transhumanism - all good stuff - but only Gibson, Sterling and a few others get the details which, for me, make the setting appealing.

In all the chat about what to read, I’m surprised not to see much mention of Bruce Sterling, “the other cyberpunk guy” who has a standing slot at SxSW as a kind of uncle figure for weird Wired tech.

Islands in the Net is a classic. Distraction is my favourite.

Snow Crash:

Son of Rodney posted:

I only read snow crash from Stephenson and I distinctly had the impression that I was reading a kind of comedic tribute to Gibson and the genre. It was so tongue in cheek and over the top that I never got the idea that people would see it as a serious novel. The main guy is named hiro protagonist and delivers pizza in a batmobile for an Italian mafia boss who's name is papa Giovanni or something. That's like fanfic level of plot points.

Simone Magus posted:

Snow Crash is of-course a parody, but it is still pretty... bad. There's juvenile fun to be had there, sure. Just be prepared to cringe a lot.

Splorange posted:

Since this thread keeps firing neurons that connect to related media and speaking of that cop quest: I remember Total Recall 2070 as being a fairly compelling tv show that lasted only one season.

I don't know if you can get hold of it now and I fear that it might turn out to be garbage that doesn't hold up in 2020. But I think it did have an overarching plot and a really nice aesthetic.

I do remember the main actor being a poor man's David Duchovny as in; could easily have been doing soft porn before this gig.

Yay nomad wins. My thinking is that since I don't know much about the setting and the focus is the city choosing a path where I'm coming in as an outsider would be best for a first run.

I was leaning towards Nomad, since that seems like a good start learning Night City with the character. But now I'm thinking a Corpo, used to the ~good life~ and thrown into the slums may be more of a fish-out-of-water...

So I think I'll try Corpo, then Nomad, and finally take all of that knowledge for a Street Kid final run! :woop:

Definitely in this for Corpo (puts you right in the middle of the game's main plot, immerses you in all the cool futuristic technology of the setting, and offers plenty of fun fish-out-of-water options when you get tossed onto the street), and still interested to see how feasible (and playable) full wizard builds end up being. Why play a cyberpunk game where you're mostly using your own primitive meat-sleeve to fight people?

i am more curious how much you can gently caress corpos over with your knowledge, we already know you can do it with the flathead quests.
