CD Projekt Red recently disclosed their financial results and had some interesting comments to share regarding Cyberpunk 2077.
I mean, I would hope so since he is backing the project.
Norman Reedus never played Death Stranding...
Norman Reedus Also didn't really push marketing this game anywhere near the level of Keanu. The most Norman Reedus mainly just talked about was his experience working with Hideo on the project.
He's been the face of the whole marketing, you think he's going to say he hates it? Not that I don't believe him I'm sure it will be a great game. They really haven't done a great job showing how it's going to be amazing but I'm sure it's going to be one of those 'you need to play to truly understand why it's great' kinda games.
Yeah, Keanu Reeves, I wouldn’t expect to say anything else. My first thought when reading this was “Norman Reedus” who loved that Walking Dead game and said it was amazing and whatever, yet there were literally no review copies sent out (if I’m not mistaken) so basically his mouth was the only one people had to go on, until release day. I might be wrong, somebody correct me, please. But I don’t remember early reviews from websites before the release day, going out, which was annoying. And I didn’t have much faith in the game and it turned out to be complete garbage, no surprise there, really. I’m excited for Cyberpunk. And do think once played, it’ll be like, wow, I’m really surprised at how great this is. If not...I’ll cry lol. If Keanu’s genuinely loving it, awesome! His times being well spent. But like Nolan North, who’m I love, great guy, extremely talented and I respect him and all he’s done, basically. But I remember when he talked and praised up Avengers from Crystal Dynamics and compared it to Uncharted when we were still waiting for footage and only behind closed door stuff was shown, I think this was right before the leaked footage surfaced. His words “It absolutely is one of the most stunning things…", promised the prolific voice actor [via GameByte], "you can’t tell where in-game cinematics and gameplay [separate]…it’s so seamless…" “You always worry that [a game] looks so good, and then you get the game and you’re like, ‘oh gameplay doesn’t look as good.’ [Avengers] really, visually, it’s one of the most stunning things I’ve ever seen. And obviously with The Last of Us, Uncharted, they’re amazing, but [Avengers] blew me away.” This is why I don’t take much from some who work on games, he’s not good at them. Now he’s talking on visuals but from a gameplay perspective too, he’s gone on about how impressive it was in interviews as well. Some of you all have enjoyed the finished game, some haven’t. To me it wasn’t impressive, gameplay wise or visually all that.
Yeah it's clearly marketing. Ever since Keeanu's resurgence in popularity in the past 6 years with the John Wick movies and the whole breathtaking thing at E3. Keeanu is the perfect guy for marketing anything right now because he can sell anything just by stage presence alone. Movies and games. CD is doing what any corporation would do, Hell I would. Keeanu doesn't strike me a gamer one bit tbh.
agreed, none of the videos have done a good job in showing if but i think you've just gotta get lost in the story and world and it'll all come together
In other stunning News, Keanu Reeves says Arch Motorcycles are the best on the market. (He owns Arch Motorcycle company) blah...
Let's face it, he's in the game so he's hardly going to say it's shit is he?
ofcourse he's going to like it.....he's in the game
He's a part of the project so of course he would say he loves it.
It’d be weird if he said he didn’t.
Of course, he is! He's basically the face of the game and probably gets a bonus on the percent of sales. What a dumb article.
Of course I loves it, they pay him a lot and he isn't a gamer at all...
What should he say, he hates it? Btw keanu is very slow and boring, so this game should fit to him :p
Do you think if he hated it, they would actually say that? I'm surprised they didn't say that Keanu thought it was breathtaking.
Cant wait to play this.
Wel I would expect him to say that considering he’s been paid to be in the game .
ya ok, what a joke of a testimony.
The game really looks awesome. I haven't really been following it that closely since announcement, but I've watched some recent trailers, and I'm sold.
"Employee and generally nice person says positive things about employer and the product he's a part of." Wow, amazing news.
Imagine if he came back and told CDPR the game is total trash.
Because Keanu is "Breathtaking" /S
Throughout the history, no game with intensive celebrity presents did anything beyond being boring and mediocre. We are -may- witnessing the first game with celebrity being amazing and making it into the history of being GOTY.
Hey, Ellen Paige and Willem Dafoe and a few others were brilliant in Beyond Two Souls, and while the game wasn’t as amazing as HR before it, it was still an amazing game overall (just less interactive from a gameplay perspective) and some story issues I had. But amazing game and star power, Celebrity’s who were grateful to be doing the project and clearly thrilled by it. We don’t know how CyberPunk will turn out yet. Here’s hoping it’ll be GOTY quality for 2021, sincerely. But I don’t personally care what celebrity face they get to market and have a starring role in their game (that goes for any studios game, it doesn’t make me have more faith in the game, because someone from Hollywood's come in. The studio and their work from the past (if they’ve got work to show for/which is great) is what makes me have faith in them, first and foremost. That passion and love and drive to keep pushing out quality top notch gaming experiences. That celebrity (even if I respect and love them/their work in tv/film isn’t going to make me go “GOTY” and so on. The game is so much more than that person/persons. The overall package has to be great in all its intricate/collective areas and that celebrity is a part of it, but they don’t make me believe their presence alone will lift the game to remarkable heights.
It’s professional courtesy not to throw shade during production. I’ve seen James Cameron hype the last three Terminator movies. You lied to me James, lol!
I like Keanu Reeves love the Matrix franchise grew up on Bill and Ted but until I see gameplay and what the common gamer has to say about the game I remain biased. This game might be a day one for me or I might wait until its dirt cheap I have seen overhyped games be great and I have seen overhyped turds.
Would he say anything else? Lmao
Like marketing would progress if he had a negative outlook on the game they went out of the way for him to help market (not to mention an unsaid release delay contributer). 'Punk' is not playing this game like a mainstream consumer. Passing on this until it hits GOTY edition for like 15- 20 bones. Sorry Red, did not feel ya on Witcher 3 and def not feeling ya now. Funny how you guys are all about Cyberpunk, but don't get it past the astetic.
I saw the video of his motion capture sessions for this game, i don't know who gave him directions, but the acting and delivery was pantomime at best.
I am waiting for December 10 🤩
I read that he hates it. Who to believe?
