Take a look at some of the gangs in Cyberpunk 2077 in this new video.

During its Night City Wire stream today, CD Projekt Red provided a more detailed look at the gangs in Cyberpunk 2077.

The gangs are 6th Street, Animals, Maelstrom, Moxes, Tyger Claw, Valentinos, and Voodoo Boys. You’ve seen some of these gangs in action before in previous videos, with last year’s gamescom gameplay demo showing off a mission with the Voodoo Boys.

Cyberpunk 2077 missions are “hand-tailored”, like The Witcher

about X hours ago from

Starting beef with a street gang in Cyberpunk 2077 won’t stop you from working for them later in the game. Nor will gang members automatically come gunning for you whenever your paths cross following a ruckus, either.

That’s because the missions in Cyberpunk 2077 have been “hand-tailored” by developer CD Projekt just like they are in monster hit The Witcher 3; so no relying on a seemingly arbitrary system that says because you shot a street thug in your first hour you’re going to be walking around with a target on your back while you’re on a gang’s turf.

“It’s not the case that if you start fighting with a gang you will be unable to do a job for them. Although some of them might remember what you did and they will actually hold a grudge, so to speak. It really depends… most of our content is custom-made, it’s hand-tailored, so it really depends on a specific quest and situation,” said quest designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz in a recent interview with The Gamer.

As with The Witcher 3, you’ll see an immediate response to your choices, but you should also discover certain consequences as a direct result of your actions much later down the line.

Cyberpunk 2077 features “genital replacement” sex augmentations

about X hours ago from

CD Projekt’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 will allow players to replace their genitals with sex-focused augmentations.

True to the original RPG Cyberpunk 2020 world, male characters can enhance their libido with the Mr Studd augmentation, allowing them to shag all night long. The female equivalent is the Midnight Lady or Mrs Midnight.

“It’s like vagina replacement cyberware,” revealed Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, quest director for Cyberpunk 2077, speaking to The Gamer. “Also, there’s breasts and all that. And then, I think the male counterpart is Mr. Studd, I think, which is also genital replacement.”

Who’s most likely to have the sex augs? That would be the members the Moxes, a collective of sex workers who have left previous gangs to form under their own union, of sorts.

Spelunky 2 Shortcuts: Where to find a Hired Hand, Golden Key

Obviously, you’re the best explorer Spelunky 2 has ever seen. You breeze through every stage without need for an alternative route, bypass every boss fight without breaking a sweat, and definitely don’t die all the time to the horrendous jumping spiders – even the big ones.

But what if I told you that there were a series of Spelunky 2 shortcuts that made the game ever-so-slightly easier? Where, with enough patience and perseverance, you can unlock special timesavers as you crunch your way through to the final areas.

While the requirements to unlock these shortcuts are relatively simple, the later challenges can be devilishly difficult to defeat – but would you expect anything less from Spelunky 2?

Release dates: every video game confirmed for 2020

Just looking at the sheer number of big, highly-anticipated games coming in 2020, there’s very little chance the year will disappoint.

2020 has kicked off, and as we do every year, we’re bringing you a round-up of all the video game release dates in one place. So many games originally shooting for 2019 got pushed back to the new year, to say nothing of the many other heavy-hitters aiming for launch in 2020.

The year will hopefully be one to remember, though we do hope the real world doesn’t screw things up too much.

Sony considered a low-spec PS5, but decided against it because it would’ve been “problematic”

about X hours ago from

PlayStation boss Jim Ryan said Sony wasn’t too keen on releasing a PS5 with lower specs alongside a more beefed-up version.

According to Ryan, who said he respects “every competitor’s decision and their philosophies,” creating a lower speced PS5 console was something Sony considered at one time, but decided it was something that didn’t yield great results in the past.

“Clearly, price is a very important factor,” he told Japanese site AV Watch via VGC.  “One thing that can be said is that if you look at the history of the game business, creating a special low priced, reduced spec console is something that has not had great results in the past. We’ve considered that option and seen other executives who have attempted this discover how problematic it is.”
