E3 is in full effect somewhere out there in the world, with all the big video game companies announcing their newest games. As such, I’m following along and sharing some trailers I’m excited about.
Like The Outer Worlds!
Remember how Fallout: New Vegas was fun and silly and creative, and then Fallout 4 wasn’t? Because the people who made New Vegas broke off and have since made their out Fallout, with blackjack and hookers! The Outer Worlds should be a blast!
Then there’s Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red, the makers of the Witcher games. Those games are amazing, and this new game should be killer!
I love me a good role-playing game.
I just recently downloaded Monster Hunter World, but I’m having a little trouble with the learning curve. We’ll see. Other than that, I’m still kicking around in Red Dead Redemption Online. That game was too good to give up. But I could definitely use some of these new role-playing games soon!
Cyberpunk 2077 is the new game from CD Projekt Red, the makers of The Witcher series of role-playing games, one of the best role-playing games of all time. So I’m very hyped about Cyberpunk 2077. Let’s watch!
Obviously, it looks beautiful. And they are promising a lot of freedom. And I’ll definitely play the game. But I wasn’t super impressed by that video. I think going first-person is a bad idea. The Fallout/Elder Scrolls games have that on like, and this just looks like a fancier Fallout game. Granted, CD Projekt Red might make a better game than Fallout, which would be great, but then you’re just a better version of Fallout instead of your own thing.
Eh, I don’t know what I’m grousing about. I’m sure the game will be super fun when it comes out in a year or so.
E3 was this weekend and a lot of fun video games were announced and/or revealed. The one I am most excited about is Cyberpunk 2077, by CD Projekt Red. If you’re not familiar with that developer, they’re the geniuses behind The Witcher series, including The Witch 3: Wild Hunt, arguably the greatest role-playing game of all time.
So there’s a very good chance that Cyberpunk 2077 could be the greatest role-playing game of all time.
I am very excited for this game. We don’t have a release date yet, but it should be in another year or two. CD Projekt Red announced this game a bunch of years ago, then went silent while they finished off The Witcher 3 and its DLC. Now they have a trailer and something to show, so hopefully the hype will just keep building.
From what I’ve gathered on the web, including people deciphering hidden messages within that trailer, this looks to be another single-player role-playing game set in a crazy future America, full of gangs and mega-corporations. So all the greatness of their Witcher RPGs, but in a new world with a new franchise, where there is no limit on creativity.
I was going to complain about the main character in the trailer being another white guy, but I’ve also heard that we’ll be able to create our own main character, so that settles that. I love creating my own character, and to be able to do so in a CD Projekt Red RPG should be phenomenal!
