Cyberpunk 2077 (XBO/PS4/PC)

  • @bam541

    Was TW3 bad bad with bugs? I played all three Witcher games a solid 1-2 years after release.

  • @dipset At least on consoles it was.

  • Youtube Video

    The driving looks really good. Omg I need this game!

  • Really enjoy watching live foley / sound recordings. Old film or 2020 video games, I just love watching this stuff.

    I remember I watched a BTS video for SOCOM Confrontation back in 2007 recording real life guns for the game. At the time, I think Battlefield might’ve been the only game doing that. It was really cool at the time and it’s pretty standard now.

    I’d be curious how the live recording gets altered in Sound Edit but idk if that makes for pretty EPK footage.

  • some of those cosplays are insane

  • Game's delayed again. It won't show up at this year's Game Awards, which I'm sure will be a sigh of relief from other devs looking to win something there, lol.

  • Ugh, shame. I honestly didn't see this coming as they went gold like a few weeks ago which they did address. I mean 21 days isn't that much but I wonder if this is gonna be another 21 days of crunch?

  • @themarcv it will absolutely be more crunch for them. It's pretty depressing tbh.

  • Dammit! This screws up my gaming schedule for the Q4 big time.

  • This actually helps me giving me plenty of time to play Cold Steel 4, but god damn it, it still pisses me off.

    idk what would be to blame, but seriously just say fuck Stadia on release date, the 5 guys waiting on it can wait, and delay the next gen versions or something, their new adopter install bases shouldn't make everybody else wait on something that is ready to go.

  • @bam541 yep this 100% means they need to crunch for additional time, I'd imagine pretty much until Christmas since it isn't like they won't be working on post release patches.

  • Schreier basically said the same thing, I totally forgot about post launch patches. That sucks.

  • @bam541 I do appreciate Schreir reporting but man he sure knows how to come off as an absolute asshole.

  • @bard91 I think he's an excellent reporter that covers important issues, but I agree his social media presence has become both aggressive and defensive lately. That said, he gets an absurd amount of death threats from fanboys, often has his words willfully misconstrued or taken out of context, and is just generally treated like shit by a loud portion of the public, so I kind of get it.

  • @naltmank sure that's certainly not easy, and I definitively appreciate his coverage, but like some guys on a GameInformer podcast mentioned, his attitude is far from constructive and the industry as whole could benefit if he acted in a more supportive to other journalists, cause it certainly aint good to only have him as the source for this type of info.

    With that said I've also spent a while today reading the reddit post of some supposed CDPR devs, and from that take, things certainly seem to be more in line with what Schreir has said, which is obviously not good but oh well what is one more thing to be depressed about in this preapocalyptic dystopia we live in.

  • The main takeaway from this in my opinion is that it's going to be a very bad idea to buy this game at launch.

    Delaying the game yet again, so close to release and after having confirmed it so many times and even going gold means that they must be in deep, deep shit. If it was just minor optimization issues on some platforms, they would bite the bullet and fix them post-launch. So we're either looking at very poor performance/stability on some platforms, and/or myriad of bugs affecting many quests, systems, and so on.

    The game has to be performing very poorly today for them to be pushing it back, and there's little chance that all will be fixed on December 10th. I expect this game to be getting significant weekly patches throughout December and into the new year, easily. So for a hassle-free experience, it's probably wiser to wait a few months before picking it up.

    On the other hand, this is a godsend for Watch Dogs Legion, it's now the only dystopian open-world experience available at launch for next-gen.

  • @axel

    Ah man that’s disappointing. It really says a lot coming from you as well.

    I might just jump on the PS5 train and spend that time with Demon’s Souls but I also have plenty of backlog.

    I never played any CDPR games at launch but didn’t they all launch quite a bit buggy? I just don’t know how severe.

  • @dipset I remember The Witcher 3 was terrible at launch on PS4, if that's any indication haha.

  • @axel
    I thought it was ok, far better then the Xbox version pre One S or One X.
