Cyberpunk 2077 News Characters & Neologism

, , 28 Comments


In the latest Cyberpunk 2077 News, Amazon
revealed the World of Cyberpunk 2077 Deluxe Edition. This edition includes an exclusive
Night City Map cover, Slipcase featuring Night City graffiti, temporary tattoos, a Johnny
Silverhand poster, and four postcards that each showcase a vehicle from one of Night
City’s diverse and unique lifestyles. Not entirely sure if the deluxe edition provides
value for money at $100 compared to $36 for the normal edition, as the additional items
such as the tattoos and postcards aren’t exactly something which I would buy separately.
You can buy the normal book and a copy of the Cyberpunk 2077 game for less than the
deluxe version. So, is this just a Corpo money grab? Let me know your thoughts in the comment
section. Closer examination of the tattoos, reveals
a reference to something called the Mox. Potentially could be a name of a new gang?
Paul Leonard-Morgan shared additional glimpses into his work on the game’s soundtrack.
Hollie Bennett modelled the new Cyberpunk 2077 Beanie Hat, which I think is cool.
Marcin Blacha, Story director at CD Projekt Red hinted at a few of the characters that
might appear in 2077, citing his favourites as a prisoner who wants to achieve his life
ambitions one day, an artificial intelligence that runs a taxi company and a girl who works
as a nurse and behind the counter of an esoteric shop. Esoteric is intended for or likely to
be understood by only a small number of people with specialist knowledge. The AI might be
referring to Delamain, voiced by Samuel Barnett, who runs armoured cab taxis, but there is
more than one taxi service operating in Night City, so its just an educated guess at this
point. Blacha comments that the script for Cyberpunk
2077 occupies four large books, which journalists immediately jumped all over. Well, the Hobbit
and Lord of the Rings are books, but one is substantially longer than the other, so describing
its four large books is not exactly revealing. Marcin would comment that CDPR avoided neologisms
in the dialogue, preferring to give new meanings to known terms. Neologisms in common parlance
basically means a newly coined word or expression. I have been asked about the Netwatch website.
It’s nothing special, just part of the ongoing ARG. Ironically though Netwatch refer to themselves
as Wolves, Icemen and Weasels. Weasels originally was a derogatory term, in a similar vein to
Netpig. Mike Pondsmith recently did an interview,
where the theme of gender was touched upon for the umpteenth time. Mike is quoted as
saying: “The first thing is, if you want to get somebody to kind of see your point of
view, don’t preach,” Pondsmith says, going on to address the issue of gender portrayal
in 2077. “At least for Talsorian, we always had kind of a generally progressive leaning
anyway. A lot of this is kind of like, we were doing this back in the ’80s.’ We had
transgender people running around in Cyberpunk in 1989 because my friends are transgender.
So, what’s the deal? Why not? But that’s not preaching this is the world I see.”

    good as always and yes if you want to change peoples minds do not yell at them or say you are better then them they will just tune you out then make a solid argument have points and counter points ready think through what you want to get across then plan it out otherwise it comes across as just off the cuff outrage and see both sides of a thing so you can see how what you want to happen will look good in the eyes of the people you are trying to win over and the other thing never come to the table empty handed or with your hat in your hands nothing shuts a deal down faster then not having something the other party wants

    I'm honestly tired of "games journalists" coming at Mike and CDPR about gender representation. Both CDPR and R. Talsorian Games have characters that represent genders well, sure, but that was never a focus. They just care about good storytelling. These "journalists" seriously need to drop this blatant attack on their game's focus and report on things that actually matter.

    Some people are jumping to the conclusion this is about the game? It's a deluxe version of the book "The World of Cyberpunk 2077".

    Another question: In the Cyberpunk 2077 Collector's Edition you get the "World Compendium detailing the game’s setting and lore". What is the difference between that book and the World of Cyberpunk 2077? Currently unknown. It does feel strange though have multiple books…

    Well nobody is being forced to get the new edition. The tattoo pack is a bit odd though. An insignia patch or two would be nicer but that's just me.

    I’ll stick with the standard edition I preordered but nonetheless I’m excited for this game. Also any speculations to why items such as meat and a few meds were banned in night City?
