CD Projekt, makers of The Witcher games, announced they are working on a new RPG franchise. This is great. It’s called Cyberpunk and will be set in a grim and gritty technological future. I was excited until I went and looked at the FAQ they released to their fans. My interest vanished like a golf ball in three feet of snow.
Mihura: Will there be full customization of our character like a D&D game, things like GENDER, ethnicity, moral stand point, SEXUALITY…etc or we will be restrict to something like Geralt from TW2?
MM: We definitely want to give players way more freedom with customization of the main protagonist then they had with Geralt in The Witcher series. We are planning on letting them change their statistics, equipment, implants and much more.
Woohoo! I can change my statistics, equipment and implants–of my male-only character. Since when have we ever been able to do that in a game? Oh, since at least the last decade and a half, which makes this the fail quote of the day. I guess Rockstar and CD Projekt are just muscles and testosterone personified. Luckily this girl’s got two middle fingers.
