The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
Bunch of people who got to play it behind closed doors hyped it like it was the second coming of jesus, i dont see it.

Looks like a more in-depth deus ex which is right up my alley but nothing revolutionary

i don't get the hype either, beyond the fact that it came out of development hell and the fact that it looks kinda cool (but only kinda)

it has sex and naked people in it though so this is obviously a step forward into making video games a Mature Artistic MediumTM

Are you against all sex and nudity in general or just when it's gratuitous and shoved in your face?

Because if it's just kind of in the background during a scene it just seems like worldbuilding to me, without the game shying away from people who may be offended by it. If it's appropriate to the scene then why not?

kind of a hard question to answer—i mean obviously, yes, if sex is appropriate for a given scene, then there's no reason to be opposed to it—but what is "appropriate"

my favorite anime is devilman, where the sex could very easily be described as gratuitous and shoved in your face (oftentimes literally)—but the reason i'm mostly okay with it is because it uses those things to make a broader point about human nature—a point that would be have much less of an impact if those scenes were removed or toned down

but if it's only there because the artists have this preconceived notion in their heads that it's not truly for adults unless it has adult content in it, i would consider that inartistic and something i'd be "against"—and that goes beyond sex; it also goes for violence and pretty much anything else

don't add things to games because you think you have to, do it because you know you have to for the story you wanna tell

basically, if it's handled maturely or tastefully, i don't care—but i think it's fair to say that video games aren't exactly known to handle sexual matters with maturity or taste, and i'm skeptical that this one will, because historically, given the fact that most people who play video games are men, the industry is obviously going to take advantage of all the things that men like, which will inevitably result in some distasteful design choices and exploitative marketing practices

sometimes these practices can infest the minds of otherwise honest developers who develop these preconceived notions, not out of corporate cynicism, but by virtue of them being SO deeply entrenched in the industry at large, to where well-meaning and talented devs don't even realize what toxic shit they're perpetuating

i should hope none of this will apply to this cyberpunk game, but i'm too jaded on the issue to make anything but a frivolous/flippant comment about its use of nudity—so don't take that too seriously

How do you decide if it's appropriate to add? Take blood/gore for instance. In real life gunshot wounds are very messy. Bullets can tear limbs off and crack skulls open. Do we need that kind of detail in games because it stays true to how it would be in real life or should it just not exist in the game?

case by case, because imposing stringent standards on art is quite counter to what i believe art should be in the first place

i would say if you wanna make a shooter game that's going for maximum realism, then you would definitely want the gunshot wounds to be as realistic as possible—and if you're playing mortal kombat, then the violence should be extremely over the top, to a point where it would inspire fear/disgust within the uninitiated and joy/awe/laughter to the initiated

if you're playing a fantasy game for children like zelda, then perhaps the violence shouldn't be so intense

it's not worth it to come up with a grand sweeping rule because all games are different and go for different things—if something is TOO over the top, you'll generally know it when you see it, and that should be criticized just as much as you would a hyper-realistic military simulator for not having the correct amount of blood splatter for each gun shot (or whatever)

emigrate or degenerate. the choice is yours
I was hoping for a more neo noir aesthetic. Maybe that's just the Blade Runner fan in me.

Honestly looks more like Dredd rather than actual Cyberpunk.

Isn't Dredd still cyberpunk?

I'd say it's more of a hybrid of dystopia interlaced with post apocalyptic punk. There's a very specific tone to cyberpunk which I appreciate CDPR for attempting to emulate, but I don't think quite sticks the landing.
