This game is shaping up to be a worthy successor to Deus Ex. They confirmed you can finish the game without killing. There will be swimming too.

 

I wrote it elsewhere: For me, it's rather a cyberpunk GTA. Definitely offers a different gameplay to Deus Ex. The essence of Deus Ex is not finishing it without killing, and being able to swim. It's rather linear gameplay, and small city hubs, while Cyberpunk offers a open game world.

 

It also doesn't look very Deus Ex like. More colourful, less dark. More "punky" and freaky, less techy. Fair enough. It's a different game. It surely will be a good game as well.

 

CD Projekt Red seems to have some financial trouble though. Hope that doesn't affect the development of this game.

The open game world play is definitely more like GTA. And, considering that almost any game has some RPG elements these days, i wouldn't say that's exclusive to Deus Ex or RPG's now either. To me, it looks and feels quite different to Deus Ex. Again, which is fair enough, as it's a different game. I'm really not a fan of such comparisons. If anything, it raises expectations which most likely are not being met by the final game.

 

Seriously, those trailers don't resemble Deus Ex at all for me. If anything, then a wild mix between Blade Runner, Deus Ex and GTA.

I hope Cyberpunk won't get in the way of making GOG 2.0. So much of a better alternative to challenge Steam / Epic Store / Origin / Uplay and prevent exclusives from being the new normal. GOG Connect is a breath of fresh air in that order.

GOG Connect.

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

I'm optimistic that it won't. GOG has been around for a while, and making a Steam clone is easier now since you've had years to see what works and what doesn't. Although in the case of Epic, their store lacks features and is nerfed (reviews).

If anything, having the store might get in the way of making games? Where's Half Life 3?

Each DeusEx game had very different style too. First one was pretty believable in it's depiction of the future couple of decades from now. Invisible war on the other hand was set farther into the future and looked more like Star Trek.

Human Revolution was way out there with it's "neo-renaissance" fashion and completely unrealistic Hengsha city:

And it was supposed to be set in 2027 :)

CDPR on the other hand went the slightly retro-futuristic route, that is future how it was imagined by people in the 80's and 90's. Plus it's set in California and they mostly shown the game during day. There's still a lot that we haven't seen yet though.

It's only a model...

Star Trek is a good example for the same problem:

One of the newer interpretations called "Discovery" is set ca. 100 years before ST:TNG...but the "old" technology used therein seems much more advanced. :)

It has more to do with the factions for me, not so much with the game world, which seems to be fine. Not really into those freak or musclepacked characters.

I will probably end up playing it anyway... :) In my opinion, though, from what I've seen, it looks like a modern game. For the good and the bad.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.

      Just found out piped.kavin.rocks has a build-in audio-only for video's (great for music video's). Never thought something like this (including browser extensions) excisted. This would have saved me a lot of money on vacation, where I was camping without wifi.
