It's a decent enough way to show what things might be like if all of that can just go completely unchecked. T-5 min if you're interested . I ultimately think this is sort of emblematic of a larger issue with the game as a whole (it doesn't really explore any element of its setting, it just thrusts something unusual in front of you, goes "ain't that weird", gives you some Street Cred, and moves on without analysis, commentary, or exporation), but with the more adult aspects of the setting it comes off extremely callous. The first season of Altered Carbon explored classism and sexwork so much more interestingly than Cyberpunk, and Altered Carbon barely really looks at it in the grand scheme of things. ...

Giant Bomb. Crazy stuff. Ken Leung's performance on HBO's Industry is a good example of subverting this trope of the repressed, internal Asian male as you get to know his character a bit more and realize how much he's actively playing into that stereotype to suit the needs of UK investment banking. @efesell: I'd say that it is sometimes intentionally edgy, especially around sexuality (not really around race) but I don't think it intends to offend or upset people, it's just more of a juvenile "hell yeah, a game where you can just pick up a hooker and we actually show you explicit sex, anything goes in Night City, no limits bros" attitude. Definitely. Member. I swear they must have stealth patched this because everyone talks about all these goddamn dildos and I ain't found a one.

In terms of whether I was personally offended by anything...I would say mildly yeah. So I guess a lot of the things considered problematic in the game don't register with me. My honest reaction to every piece of "shocking" media in the game was, "really?" To see if people really start filling out this world with even more detail and, hopefully, some polish. I guess that first Cyberpunk 2077 cover art was bad - Cyberpunk 2077 - Giant Bomb. CDPR does the latter. I have done a ton of side missions but not all of them. If this game attempted to deliver a meaningful message about any of this, it would be easier to forgive, but instead, it mostly just comes off as 4chan humor. Some of the enemy gangs have some of the laziest edgy combat dialogue I've heard, and it does come across as a bit more "shock you" to make you want to fuck them up. Honestly, I can't really blame Sony here. They might argue that it's a commentary on those motels (something that's discussed later in the game) or how now that inhibitions are gone dildos are like bibles, every room has them, but I think the thought was just "tee hee wouldn't this be funny" so they did it, which is really how much of the game's approach to sexuality plays out. The core game is so divorced from this miasma of shitty sub-South Park humor they just vomited onto all the (otherwise pretty) architecture of Night City. This process takes no more than a few hours and we'll There were a few instances where I couldn't pick up an item for some reason.

We talk over the Cyberpunk 2077 reveal and try and figure out how punk is cyber? The game handles trans stuff pretty badly but it isn't explicitly anti-trans, and it handles women badly but it's not soaked in misogyny like some games, so it's far from the worst title I've played even this year in these regards.
