Pretty weird making a cyberpunk game and just calling it Cyberpunk. That’s like making a puzzle game called Puzzle. It takes minimum effort to an absurd extreme.
@tofuwabohu It’s like when the username you want is taken, and the website suggests adding some numbers onto the end of it.
@Miloillan13 Oh my god. It’s literally what they did with Scary Movie in the 2000s. But this time they’re doing it unironically.
@InvaderXan Part of me hopes that CP2077 takes its grimdark edginess to high camp levels for exactly this reason.
@Miloillan13 I hope so. Honestly, I tend to find that the more entertainingly campy things tend to be the ones that realise that they’re campy. On the other hand, stories and games alike are easily ruined by taking themselves far too seriously!

to be fair I have a vanity auction guild in World of Warcraft named "Names Are Hard." one day my alt was standing at the mailbox as I was sorting stuff and there was a toon standing next to me whose guild name was "Guild Name." XD "Ominous Latin Words" was a popular Alliance guild for a while...
@InvaderXan Or having a focus group name one of your cars "ka" and the other "focus" @FordMotorCompany
Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
