These are our predictions for the reactions to the Cyberpunk 2077 stream

, | Games

CD Projekt RED will be streaming a 15-minute edited version of the gameplay they’ve been showing to selected folks at Gamescom. You’ll be able to catch the broadcast on August 30th here or here. According to the announcement, the stream will include an interview with the team, footage of the Pacifica area in the game’s Night City, and a demonstration of the way different play styles work in Cyberpunk 2077. Nvidia posted a tiny taste from Gamescom to whip up interest.

As you might expect, some people, rather than being excited at the idea of seeing more Cyberpunk 2077, are angry that CD Projekt RED is only showing an edited chunk of the full Gamescom demo. With fans like that, it’s more fun to predict people’s reactions to the video, then what we might actually see in the stream.

  • More debate about how the first-person view was the wrong or right decision, followed by heated discussion of how balls the combat was in The Witcher 3, and how everyone must’ve been bought off to heap praise on such an obviously over-hyped game.
  • Lady Gaga still won’t know why people keep tweeting #CyberPokerFace at her.
  • Look at this stair-stepping! I’m calling “bullshot” on the video. It’s obviously a work.
  • Someone will zoom in on incomprehensibly small detail and use it to back up their pet theory of the company culture in CD Projekt RED.
  • Countless YouTube videos will be made purporting to show you “Easter eggs you totally missed” with thumbnail images featuring a giant red arrow pointing at nothing.
  • Keanu Reeves will be forced to act like the “you’re breathtaking” meme hasn’t crossed into annoyance for him.
  • See here? That’s some obviously poor HBAO effect. Looks like CDPR is taking the lazy route.
  • Cyberpunk pen and paper game creator Mike Pondsmith will remain a true gentleman, but his smile will slip ever so slightly when people accuse him of copying Shadowrun.
  • Is that transhuman mercenary street samurai racist? Let’s dig in!
  • Collective wailing and gnashing of teeth as gamers realize there are still over 200 days until the April 2020 launch.
