Mike Pondsmith shares his thoughts on what Cyberpunk is about and RED express some of their design philosophies and how they will be implement their ideas in the game.
Not really new info but an interesting read nonetheless It gives me hope that CP2077 will be absolutely groundbreaking and I simply can't wait to play it!
It's crazy. RED is developing The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077. If RED was a woman I'd marry her!

Well, there you go. We've reduced an interactive medium to an arbitrary number of pixels projected on our screen and a machine calculating whether or not the grass should be swaying in the wind right now. Apparently that's why we chose video games as our hobbies, that's what entices us. Screw Super Mario Bros., Bastion, Okami, Shadow of the Colossus, Morrowind, they can all go to hell. This guy gets it, Mr. Yerli doesn't. In fact, I'm not even sure Yerli understands the medium or is talking about graphics in the wrong context.
To illustrate a point, I ask you to play Loneliness. There's virtually no graphics, I mean it's just a simple flash game, white background with white dots. It couldn't get any more simpler than that. But I had a more profound experience with that game than I had with any of the Crysis games. Play the game, and share with us what you felt and thought. It's not the tech that moves people, it's what you can do with it to stimulate the audience in a positive way that moves people.

So Witcher 3 was announced rather recently and my socks blew off due to my excitement. As a result, I decided to reinstall Skyrim to get into the open world atmosphere a bit and revisit my Witcher inspired Khajiit. In my effort to subside my hype and calm my nerves down, I was thinking, hey! Surely the good people of the Witcher community has some of their own awesome stories and characters to share from TES? Thus, we've come to this point. Share your characters, feel free to tell a short story or explain his background and also include pictures!
I guess since I started this semi-stupid thread, I'll go first!
Meet Maefuun the Merry, The Wayfaring Vagabond! I've invested about 200 hours into this one character. Pretty crazysauce I know!
Here he is, The Wayfaring Vagabond in all his glory!
Maefuun is trying to solve the most enigmatic riddle of all time: Women
Here's Maefuun with a drunk Orsimer
Aaaaand finally here's me cleaning Paarthurnax. You'll be surprised how much dust you can find in between dragon scales!
21.09.2012 @ 00:01I saw the Female Witchers thread which sparked a question that I've had for quite a long time.
I've played both Witcher games, love them. They're beyond amazing. If they were women, I'd bang them. Since I haven't read the books, I feel like I'm kinda fumbling in the dark when it comes to the lore of the Witcher universe. From the mountain of different questions I have about the Witcher lore, the most prevalent one is:
Can only human be Witchers? Why aren't there any dwarf/elven Witchers? Is there a dwarf/elven monster slaying order equivalent to the Witcher one? Do they even care about monsters? How come it was specifically humans who got up one morning and thought "hey! Wouldn't it be awesome if we had an order dedicated to killing all kinds of different monstrosities and we do so by augmenting humans through mutation and let them do what they do best!"
