Enh, I wish they'd make a new Sleeping Dogs.

My thoughts, exactly...all this trailer does is make me wish for Sleeping Dogs 2.

I view this whole debacle as as much a marketing crisis as anything.

Yeah, it was released buggy as Hell and unplayable on consoles.

But the real tragedy and folly of it was they amped this thing up like No Man's Sky.

I played it six months after release on PC, and I believe it would have taken some heat for being a buggy mess with their idiotic holiday season release, but then taken a place in history as one of the truly impressive open world RPGs...

...if they hadn't whipped the fanbase and gaming media into an impossible to satisfy hype frenzy.

No question they shot themselves in the foot on this one, but the game itself is actually pretty damn good...if you don't expect some revolutionary miracle of a game.

I'll wait until we see what DLC comes out before I put the time in for a second playthrough, but I sank 100hrs into the 1st pass and enjoyed it immensely, warts and all.

Truly sad to contemplate what it could have been, had CDPR not been utterly consumed by greed.

I don't think this game has anything to do with the real Microprose, but it's nice to see the logo again and this game looks promising. My 12 year old got obsessed with the classic game, so I bought him a boxed Amiga copy about a year ago... then this game got announced. Good times.

Actually, Bill Stealy and Sid Meier formed the original Microprose, and Bill Stealy bought it back with David Lagettie in 2019, after the name had made its rounds around the industry.

Being ancient enough to actually remember the original Microprose, I looked it up, recently. This is the 3rd Microprose game that has caught my attention, along with Ground Branch and Operation: Harsh Doorstep.

One hopes the take-away is "don't release unfinished games" and not "don't release ambitious games"...

It also really doesn't matter.
The reason to get a soundcard is because you think you need better digital to analog and you are the foaming at the ears type audiophile that seems to believe that any audio signal is 'unpure" or tainted when it's been through an HDMI cable.

And yes those people exist.


This article of course is nothing but "Hey 35-40 something's, remember soundcards. They still exist, but you don't really need one, but advertisers wanted us to remind you that they exist"

Sure, those people exist, but there's also a middle-ground of folks who understand that mobo audio just isn't that great and there is something to be gained from improved audio -- be you an audiophile or just someone who understands that situational awareness or better comms can give you an edge. You don't have to be John Cusack raving about vinyl to want better than on-board audio.

But the spectrum beyond your "mobo sound is fine" crowd have a ton of good options that aren't sound cards -- if you want those features, you can just grab a DAC or a DAC/amp stack and get everything a sound card does in an external device that isn't taking up cycles, real estate, cooling, and power inside your case.

Interesting.

Movie tie-ins are rarely worth a play, and it's on EGS, so I guess when it hits Steam there'll be plenty of reviews out...

Fuck multiplayer. The end is nigh... Raincloud Raincloud Raincloud

Dude! RTFM!

1. Post-Release Multiplayer

2. "the only thing we said about multiplayer was that it was in R&D"

3. "As we're getting closer to launching 'single player' Cyberpunk 2077 in Apr. 2020"

4. "once we’re done — invite you for some multiplayer action."

TL;DR - Multiplayer is a separate development that is not part of the core single-player experience. ATM, CDPR's focus is on the single-player game for launch. Multiplayer will release like a gameplay expansion similar to GTA5 being released as a full-fledged game with GTA Online being a separate multiplayer experience.

You really need to stop the knee-jerk reaction drama. It's unbecoming.

On Steam only? Yay!

On Uplay only? Sure!

On Origin only? Ok!

On GoG only? Yep!

On Epic only? FRAGRUL BLARGH FRUMPLE *frothing at the mouth* BOYCOTT THE WORLD!

Some people draw the line in a funny place.


If any of those others were guilty of reasons I will never do business with EGS, then I'd boycott them, too.

Steam is Steam. Not perfect but value added.

Uplay and Origin exclusives are publisher exclusives. I don't like it, but they kind of have that right.

GoG is demonstrably not evil.

EGS is a different animal, and if you can't see the difference, vaya con Dios, make your own choices.

Some of the best money I ever spent on an early access game...or any game...

Would be an auto-buy if was being developed by Squad. Instead, I will start off with the assumption that this will be awful and work up from there if warranted.
