I can not even begin to describe how excited I am for this game. I've been following it since the very moment it was announced last year. Mike Podsmith HIMSELF working directly with CD Projekt on this is pretty much a dream come true. Cyberpunk 2020 is the root of so very much of my imagination, writing and gaming background, and in my mind there is no game more perfect than CP2020... I know I shouldn't let my hopes get so sky high. But I can't help it.
The cinematic confirms what I already knew, that CDP knows their source material FUCKING well. Full borgs, I see the corps, I see Night City, SMART guns, (corporate?) ninja, the Corp-District cops, the street vendor cyberware... the only thing it was missing was a ridonculous themed booster gang and a decker/juicer. If I could have already paid for a copy, even without seeing a shred of gameplay, I would have done so.
They've gone at length about how to incorporate the TREMENDOUS number of skills in CP into the game on their blog, which also makes me super happy. This'll be a game made by people who grew up playing it too.
I already know of two characters I'll be making in this game... a tweaked-out, drug-addled decker, and a hardboiled cop, and from what I've read I'll have the absolute freedom to make those. Hopefully though, this time my decker's preferred casual wear won't be 'miniskirt'... there's something to be said for random character generation.
