Superman is my all-time favourite superhero. I'm greatly disappointed the character has yet to get one good game. Batman got several. Spidey got some really good ones, including the latest which is arguably the best ever (yes, I've played Spider-Man 2).

But Superman deserves that same love and attention to his own solo game like Batman and Spider-Man.

This looks phenomenal. The world feels fully realized, as I'd expect from CD Projekt Red. The little details on the world and the characters is phenomenal. I like how it's grim and gritty (like proper cyberpunk should) and yet still has an assortment of bright colours.

That said, I hope there are more options than direct action like gun play. Duck and cover shooting gets old for me fast, especially when the gameplay is largely comprised of that. If it's an RPG, I'd like more workaround options. Hacking a security system to take out goons for me, for example. Or more non-violent approaches like a charisma or diplomacy check. (Similar to Witcher 3 and using the Axii sign).

That's something I liked in, say, Fallout New Vegas, where you could hack security or bots to do the dirty work for you. Or use mechanics skills, etc.

EDIT: Sorry, I wrote this while only watching half the video so far. I stand corrected. Looks like there is a LOT of freedom in choices, And the gunplay is VERY diverse. I love the different styles of bullets like the tracers and ricochets.

@NorseLax09: It looks phenomenal. It's a fully-realized, incredibly detailed world. As I expected, of course. I also like that it's light on cutscenes and that a lot of character interactions happen in real-time.

The gameplay...hasn't sold me yet. I like the breakable environments, but I hope there's more to the action than just duck-and-cover gun play. For example, one thing I liked about The Witcher 3 was having non-violent solutions like using the Axii sign. Or, say, in Fallout New Vegas, where you can hack security systems or bots to do the dirty work for me. I'd like to see more of that.

Still, it has my attention for sure.

The one that caught my eye the most from E3 was Maneater. It's an open world game, but you play as a shark. I just love the idea of it.

6? I don't understand. Shouldn't they make 3, 4, and 5 first?

What's that you say? Rise of the who? Salwhat? Genihuh?

No no no. Those don't exist. There was The Terminator, T2: Judgement Day, and the sorely underappreciated Sarah Connor Chronicles.

NOTHING else exists.

@tman08: I THINK there's a rights issue that's stopping it. I could be wrong. I know the game was pulled from stores because the music rights expired.

@anodyn3: I REALLY wanted to like Quantum Break, but the TV episode length cutscenes in between each chapter killed it for me. I didn't have the patience to watch them.

Definitely excited for this. I'm tempted to pre-order it but will wait for some gameplay footage.

This will sound weird, but I wonder if there'll be an option to go through the game without directly getting involved in combat. For example, one thing I love about Fallout New Vegas (and to a lesser extent, other Fallout games) is doing things like reprogramming security systems or robots to do the job for you. I always enjoyed the clever workarounds like that. Seems like Cyberpunk 2077 is a prime setting for this sort of thing.

It won't be a make or break for me, but I thought it'd be fun.

I swore off on pre-orders after getting ridiculously hyped for Arkham Knight. Got a new gaming PC rig instead of a console. Pre-ordered the special edition with the season pass. And that, of course, turned out to be total crap in nearly every definition. Game itself was a disappointment. The DLC was disappointing (couldn't even use most of the Batmobile skins in the main game). The launch was a massive debacle and the game still crashes on me from time to time when I play it.

But...then there was The Witcher 3, which blew me away like no AAA game has done in recent memory. The character and world building was phenomenal. But the big thing was how CD Projeckt Red treated the fans. It was DRM free if you wanted the option (through GoG). They gave away free DLC that any other company would've made you pay up the nose for. The expansion packs were reasonably priced and again, any other company would've charged full price as if they were a new game. They've gone out of their way to fix bugs in the game.

And frankly, even though the cyberpunk genre isn't my favourite, it's because of all this that I'm still tempted to pre-order Cyperpunk 2077. Not just because I think it'll be a high-quality game, but because of how CD Projeckt Red has treated their fanbase. Probably pre-order it on Steam. Though maybe GoG given the recent debacles with Steam and Valve.

Either way, I'll at least wait to see some actual gameplay before I decide for sure.

Looks like a mix of Alan Wake and Indigo Prophecy.

So yeah, I'm in.
