Can't wait to open up Gog Galaxy and see that message saying it's ready to go. Absolutely looking forward to this. Hopefully my desktop machine with a 1660 Super will do the job.

My only fear is that I won't be able to get my RTX 3080 (Nov 7th delivery supposedly, but has been delayed several times), nor a PS5 (no delivery date) to play this on before it releases. 1st world problem, for sure.

I'm guessing it'll be reviewed more harshly than it deserves depending on when the embargo lifts. There's a groundswell of shit on Twitter and Resetera starting to brew up about the game being Transphobic. While in a sane world this wouldn't mean anything we all know that a lot of games media and press take their marching orders from what the outrage of the day is. I'm guess the metacritic will still be very high with enough outlier reviews from woke outlets taking it down a bit. Then that will be followed by people (correctly) shitting on the reviewers being called harassers and spun out into even more articles about how evil CDPR and their fans are.

Can't wait for the game, Witcher 3 is my favourite game of the last 10 years so I'm all the way on board with this.

Will Cyberpunk run better on a X1X, XSX, or PS5? I don’t know which version to buy?
XSX and PS5 will probably equal on launch. Both will probably use some kind of boosting features running in back compat mode. So probably boosted framerate and higher resolution. Real next-gen version (free update) is coming in 2021 for XSX and PS5.

It will be. Never forget that some SJW reviewer subtracted a point from Day's Gone score because she was offended that a short cutscene featured a STRAIGHT WHITE MALE and a STRAIGHT FEMALE couple playfully flirting with each other.

I mean what's the worst that can happen though?, legally these insecure basement dwellers can't do shit about it or stall the gm from being released/censored or cut game material in any way?

There is alot of media out there, journalists that pamper these little @#$%& fools when they make enough noise.

I just want to make sure I'm getting fully uncut rated M for Mature game, ya digg..fam?

I'd just hate to see the hard work of so many that has been done over so many years dragged down in any way by some idiots who want to farm outrage for clicks. They have no real power outside of screeching on social media but that has worked in the past, I don't think it will with CDPR but I'd hate to see a consumer friendly developer get tarred as being every "ist" under the sun by people with zero life experience or skills. It's number 1 in the Steam charts in many territories already (and has been in the top 10 for months) so it's going to be a sales juggernaut regardless but a lot of people with platforms are going to be doing their best to make sure it gets a bad rap.

I'll go with 94 metacritic Prediction. There's nothing like this game
Nah. I'm in agreement with others. I think it's going to get dragged down by a few sites for sure, because 'gotta get those click yo!!!' '10 great things about CP2077' doesn't generate as much Ad revenue as 'Why I'm not playing Cyberpunk 2077' because whereas the former is something readers can agree with, the latter is more likely to get shared because people are all 'I can't believe this shit got past an editor?'

Fan response and sales are what's truly important for CPD

Man I can't wait for the release!

Mostly because that means CDProjekt can hopefully fully focus on Witcher 4 afterwards!

(But I'm sure that cyberwhatever thing is going to be great too)

Has a game ever actually gotten it's reviews affected by reviewers for some woke controversy?

I feel like they usual suspects would just not review it and post an article damning CDPR instead which won't affect scores.

Kotaku review of RDR2 took crunch in to account and devoted a large section of the written review to crunch. I count this as woke shit because covering it in a review is equally fuckin moronic.

They don't post scores though do they?

I'm more talking about the metacritic score (which is pointless anyways lol)

I suspect that's well into development, though I envisage that just like with TW3 they'll be looking at shipping some DLC for CP2077 also over the coming year.

I rate the new iPhone a 6 because parts were built in sweatshops.

That coffee table you like? I rate it a 7, I'd give it a 10 but the wood is not FSC.

That new avengers movie? A 6 max, it was produced in hollywood and we all know what kind of pussygrab valhalla that is, we should not support that.

Preordered.
I hope to be able to play the game at least on medium settings at 60 fps with a 1660ti at 1440p.
Standard 1060 is on the recommendend requirements, so in theory i should be fine.

Music sounds great.

Off-topic: This guy is really fucking around on his phone while other cars are oncoming one lane over. Shit, at least wait until they are out of the way.
Just because you can't do that on your R6.
Thank god he is not a teenage girl, they are crashing like crazy round here due to phone activity while driving.

Kingdom Come was roasted in a few reviews and completely boycotted by some outlets for being a Nazi game or something. Not sure how it affected the metascore but it's a thing.

Yeah I meant more the metascore.

Kingdom Come was janky as hell so hard to say how it's score is reflected by those complaints lol

RDR2 the other game mentioned is one of the highest scoring games of all time.

What are the first things you’ll do when you’re able to freely explore Night City for the first time? I’ll probably look for a nightclub or something and try and score some hallucinogenic drugs. My aim is to recreate that scene in Altered Carbon where Takashi is tripping balls and exploring the city for the first time.
