Cyberpunk 2077 : Classes

According to Mike Pondsmith, the creator of CP 2020 tabletop RPG, upon which CDPR are building their CP77, and at last gave us some details about the upcoming “groundbreaking” game, which we will likely see in 2077, we can expect classical classes!

These said classical classes would be these:

:bulletgreen: Rockerboys – rock stars who use music and charisma to fight authority
:bulletblue: Nomads – corporate exiles blackballed from employment, who roam the highways in in modern tribal gangs
:bulletyellow: At least two different kinds of hackers, one of which use cybernetic interfaces to roam the Internet in VR
:bulletred: And journalists. Because Spider Jerusalem proved them to be awesome too.

Best of all, seems this won’t be the only classes either. How many more? When? Who knows?… As CDRP often says: Soon.

It’ll be done when it’s done

Summary: Death Note, The Wolf Among Us 2, and Oscar Wilde

Eh, alright, I’ve been having real rough couple of weeks. Depression kicked my ass hard, and just some general bad things keep happening all over. Like my kettle broke (I fixed it, but I was real worried for a good hour), grandma had a bad spell, my sleep got all messed up, where I’d wake myself due to whiny noises I’d make in my sleep, and so on and on. But I can’t really say all things are bad either.

For one, there’s a lot of great previews, like trailer/teaser for [Death Note] (as my friend said, the actor who plays Light doesn’t seem to know what’s acting like, but otherwise it might still work), and trailer for [Full Metal Alchemist].

Netflix did release [Castlevania] at last, and I think I skipped writing about it, because I was so bummed out, but yes, I’ve already watched all 4 episodes, that make under two hours of goodness. No, I have not played all the games, and I would love to, but 2D side-scrollers are often too hard for me, ever since I’m like 20 years out of the skill range (no, really, I’m sure every kid can beat those games, but not my dumb ass). I have two newer ones on Steam, and I’ll come around to playing those. So as someone with minimal knowledge, I’ll say this: it’s easy to follow, and it’s amazing.

Then there’s [Cyberpunk 2077] update, where they talk about the classes: rockstars, journalists, etc. Great, guys, can we maybe get the game before 2077 tho? Because you telling us for 5 years how it’s going to be groundbreaking is kinda pointless. Much like my grandma claiming those shoes are brand new, never worn, and expensive. But they’re 25 years old, and for less you can get better at any shop now, you know?

Best of all were the news on [The Wolf Among Us 2], that game was something epic, I played it over, and over, and when I felt stressed at work, I’d just turn on the intro screen, and allow that to be my bg music. The neon lights, clouds of cigarete smoke, wonderful music, good story, and superb characters are all I want right now. And Telltale must be my fav games in general.

Yesterday I cleaned my little corner up, making everything a little bit worse, but at the same time, it’s progress towards making it a little bit more usable space-wise. I’ve stacks, and stacks of written material, books I wrote, or am still writing, translations, studies, literal studies data, book reviews. And then hundreds upon hundreds of paintings. So I shoved things around a bit.

As a reward, or so I feel like Universe might have wanted to reward me, friend gave me a cup today, a nice tall white mug with Oscar Wilde quote to it. She had a few, showed me, and said I will probably like this one, pointing at it, and I did. She merely guessed I might like Wilde, and she could not have been more right.

With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” – Oscar Wilde

All I’m missing right now is freedom. ❤



Ghost In The Shell: 5 minute clip

In the end, even if I am not a fan of Scarlett Johansson, I understand why she was picked for the role. Ghost in the Shell is a one of a kind, heavy-duty cyberpunk, and cyberpunk was never a genre that took the scene easily. It was always exceptional, it is always something you remember and carry with you afterwards (like, Blade Runner, Neuromancer, Transmetropolitan, Logan’s Run, Matrix, you name it; Sci-fi is fairly easy to absorb, while CP has something within that pulls you out of your own body; it changes your view to the world, it leaves a mark on you, and you can’t just be the same as you was before). And cyberpunk in Japan? It’d be just so out of the general flow of minds, that yes, in the end, I understand why they picked a caucasian, famous action movie actor for the role of Major Kusanagi. They had to give the link to the masses who are not yet familiar, to whom this might be too heavy, and also those who might ignore this if it was “oh, just another sci-fi, some kind of Japanese movie based on their cartoons or whatever“. She’s a link of normality in a cyberpunk world that is anything [but normal?…] (in the end, anything can be justified, anything can happen, limit no longer exists in the glory of Makers, 3D printers, and cell labs, and when everyone’s a God – what’s there to ground the believers? And what a nonbeliever is in a society where there is nothing to believe in in the first place?)
