After countless delays, literal years of hype and trailers, and a ton of controversy, Cyberpunk 2077 is here. Easily the most anticipated game of the year for a lot of folks, Cyberpunk 2077 featuring Keanu Reeves drops later this week on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia.


I’ll be sitting out Cyberpunk 2077 for now. I feel like I’ve played way too many open-world games recently and need to finish what I have before jumping into another one. And I’m also going to wait for the next-gen ports of Cyberpunk 2077, because I’m not super hyped and I can wait a few months or more to play a better version.

Beyond Cyberpunk 2077, other stuff is coming out this week too. Not much though. Almost like a bunch of developers and publishers bailed out of this week to avoid something...

Cyberpunk is my saving grace this week. I’m sitting here with a copy of Demon Souls (PS5) and nothing to spin it in. It’s my birthday and I would love to play the game but it looks like I’ll be dusting off the PS4 and playing Cyberpunk for the next few months. Sony can suck it with their new fangled console, it sounds like it’s not worth the money anyway.
