Cyberpunk 2077 launch trailer puts a new V in Vendetta

In know, we loved the mask too, but it's time for a new V on the block, as CD Projekt Red rolled out the final trailer ahead of Cyberpunk 2077's launch.

With most of the earlier Cyberpunk 2077 trailers focusing on action, it's nice to get a change of pace, although the launch trailer isn't exactly pacifistic either. 

"Would you rather live in peace as Mr. Nobody... or go down for all times in a blaze of glory?", the trailer asks, and we all know what we'll choose. Exactly - that which Bon Jovi was telling us way back when. 

Jokes aside, Cyberpunk 2077's trailer puts forward some interesting predicaments, like the one where V didn't cheat death - it cheated him. Clearly, it's got a lot to do with Johnny Silverhand, who may not be the easiest path to where you want to go, but it's the best one you've got. 

That said, we'll let you watch the trailer for yourself and instead focus a bit on Cyberpunk 2077 patches, which drew entirely too much criticism from the crowds that claim they know how games are made. 

Now, we're certainly not fans of buggy games, who is? However, great games don't just appear in a finished state without the final en-mass testing. I mean, interlocking systems create problems. Need proof? Go make a chair. Now make it into a rocking chair. See how it goes with two systems. 

To make matters even more ironic, there are literal children on CDPR's tweets mourning the "good old days" when games were on one CD and without patches. And here we were thinking we're in the best possible age for gaming, but apparently, we're dreadfully wrong.
