E35 Cyberpunk 2077

The cybernetic pixel kids and their anarchic mate, Keanu, are dickin’ about in the hood, implants upgraded and optics on point to hack the system and collapse the corps, in CD Projekt RED’s Night City brain dance RPG, Cyberpunk 2077. Dissecting what might be the most sexually explicit and graphic game covered by Pixel Vision to date, Ben and Tao discuss if raunchy RPGs are made for men, if Cyberpunk’s infamous launch controversy has left any bugs crawling the system, how even Tao can be impressed by graphics, and why in-game Keanu works better than Norman Reedus did in Death Stranding (clue: charisma is everything). Story spoilers heavily forecast and only about the early game. This was recorded pre Patch 1.5 update.

Content Warning: PEGI 16. Like drugs, sex, rock and roll and hacking? We got you covered.
