E3 2018 cinematic trailer here

 

Looks like a proof of concept trailer rather than anything representative of game play,  but still Its got me amped. I love CDPR, I think they are gonna smash it with this game.

I have been figuratively waiting for this game since I played the tabletop version in 1991 and was playing the game adaption of Neuromancer on my C64.

 

I have been literally waiting for this since the day it was announced five years ago.

 

If this is some sick combo of Mass Effect/Dues Ex/GTA I will lose my ****. 

 

My favorite genre as an RPG shooter? If the story is tight, this will be my favorite game of all time.

 

So obviously, it's doomed.

Ha! Yeah expectations are sky high for this I think. But CDPR are gonna be aware of that, and if anyone can pull it off its them. 

 

They're AAA Indy who publish their own games. So they have no one to answer to. Which is all good news!

I'm trying to avoid getting hyped for it because I'm guessing it's still quite a way off? 

 

But hard not to be excited, CDPR more than showed they were the right ones for the job with Witcher 3.

The descriptions sound amazing, but the "mostly first person" bit is heartbreaking to me.

I can only hope it's optional like Battlefront or Fallout.

Hate to take a dump on your hopes but I think it will be mostly first person. But don't assume that means it wont be an RPG, because it is an RPG first and foremost! The first person thing can be amazing for immersion.

I've never liked it. Am I in cover or not? Is somebody behind me? Who knows! I just can't stand the lack of spacial awareness. I know I am in a minority, but I sm bummed.

I've seriously been dying for this game forever.

I think they might have developed the FP experience for this a little more, for example I think you might be able to see your own limbs, torso, legs etc when you look down which gives you a little more context of where you actually are in regards to the space around you. Though I take your point, but I hope they can make it in such a way that it doesn't ruin the experience for you.

This  Angry Joe interview with Pondsmith and a CDPR Dev guy is pretty cool. 

 

I should probably stop looking at info dumps and interviews now cause its just making me too excited

They talk about complex melee attacks, like the girl have the retractable sword arms-- stuff like that doesn't really work in first person... I don't know... I'm homding out for cariablw views.

William Gibson commented on the trailer...

Ha!

 

To be fair, the RPG the game is based on made no qualms what so ever about being based on Gibson's work. 

 

At least he's not saying he feels like she sold his children to white slavers.

I find people moaning about it "being too sunny and Californian"  retarded given that 

 

a. The game is, in fact, set in California

 

b. Day/Night Cycles and dynamic weather systems have been a staple of RPGs since 2011 (if not earlier). Meaning, the bleak rainy "Bladerunner vibe" will be there. 

 

c. Despite everything CDPR say their game and world is going to be, people don't seem to listen.

I am seriously looking forward to this game as well. I don't mind the first person, wouldn't that just improve the experience for VR?

For sure. I remember reading something they were saying that the FPP was designed intentionally to maximise immersion. 3rd person camera always brings you out of it a little bit. But there will be some specific things too, like depending on what ocular implants your character has your HUD will change, have different things attached to it. So there is a lot of scope for cool things to be done because of the FPP.

Hopefully, with today's graphics and gameplay, someone takes a serious stab at Shadowrun.

I didn't think I'd watch 48 minutes of gameplay, but that just happened without realizing it.

I was about to post that link. Looks amazing huh.

My only thing is I hate dialogue options that paraphrase what you say, and don't display the actual words your character will speak.

Otherwise everything in that reveal has me hyped to ****.

It looks like a spiritual sequel to the original Deus Ex, which is a great thing. (though I did watch the footage when I'd had far too much to drink, so quite possible I just imagined that connection)

Man... the writing and voice acting wasn't great. I don't think any of the NPCs were interesting. They just feel like overblown stereotypes. None of them seemed to have the nuance and depth of the characters from The Witcher 3.
