Cloudpunk and Cyberpunk 2077 Final Night City Wires

Looks like Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed again haha not that it really matters to me since this old retro gamer doesn’t have a computer that can run it anyway lol. However continuing from my previous post about the awesome Night City Wires 1-3 there’s been some cool new ones which I’ll post below. But firstly I’ve just noticed a review in a recent PC Gamer magazine of a small indie game called Cloudpunk that has you piloting a flying taxi around a rainy cyberpunk city at night. Looks and sounds awesome as that cockpit has massive Blade Runner vibes, the taxi reminds me of 5th Element and that creepy stormy sky reminds me of Highlander 2 lol!

Apparently there’s not much depth to the gameplay sadly as it’s more about immersion. However considering I was more looking forward to driving around Cyberpunk 2077’s city at night listening to synth tunes instead of just running around shooting people then I suspect this little game will be right up my alley haha! Apparently you get your own apartment in a sky scraper with a balcony looking over the city that you can decorate and play retro video games in, so hmm yup that’s got me written all over it too lol! Although yet again my old computer probably can’t even run this one either arrrgh haha!

Here’s the recent Night City Wire videos as well…

Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire – Behind The Scenes Video Series

Even though this old retro gamer will need a new computer to play it lol, I’ve been very much looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077 being released and have been drooling over all the videos CD Projekt Red have been releasing on youtube. Eg just look at the amazing views of the huge city in this one!

UPDATE: Night City Wire 4 & 5 posted HERE.

New Cyberpunk 2077 Video Footage

Woot! 39,000 visitors to Blake’s Sanctum now! 10k up from this time last year and we’re closing in on the big 40k! Thanks for the support guys! 🙂

The more I see of this game, the more I get excited about it! Finally some proper game footage has been recently released and not just a few mins but a massive 48mins of footage! Is it sad that I’ve watched it like 3 times now lol? I just can’t get enough of it. Takes me back to so many films like Blade Runner, Minority Report, Judge Dread (90s and especially 2012 version), and 5th Element etc. Reminds me that I need to check out that recent cyberpunk TV show called Altered Carbon! Mates keep talking about it being really good.

I play a lot of futuresynth, 80s synth, retro synth music on youtube and the videos are often accompanied by cool animations of retro futuristic cars driving through cyberpunk style dystopian cities at night with glowing blue and purple nights. In the Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay footage when you see them get in the retro sportscar and drive around the city GTA5 style I knew right away that there’s gonna be moments where I break off from the main game just go for a drive at night playing some tunes haha.

Note: If you don’t have 48mins to spare then I recommend you at least check out the 10min mark when she leaves her apartment and walks out into the amazing city!
