This Call of Duty trailer also happens to pretty nicely match our post-cyberpunk world of Neotech.

The Remember Me game shows a similarly advanced world as in our NX post-cyberpunk roleplaying game, although memory modifications won’t be in focus. Good inspiration!



New “Remember Me” Trailer Zooms In On Memories

A new trailer for Capcom and Dontnod Entertainment’s upcoming game Remember Me dives into memories, which are a commodity in the dystopian future of the game. They’re also key to in-game navigating, puzzling, storytelling, and combat.

You’ll play as Nilin, a memory hunter trying to recover her memories and take down her former employer, Memorize. She’s able to enter memories, render them, and look for glitches within them — but the act of changing memories has consequences.

Watch the video for the full details. Remember Me comes out June 4 in North America and June 7 in Europe.

Added it to my Steam wishlist recently; it looks great and has really interesting futuristic ideas that I’m all about.

“We call ourselves Runners. We exist on the edge between the gloss and the reality: the mirror’s edge. Runners see the city in a different way. We see the flow.”

Game needs a sequel.

Of course I have to reblog the official teaser trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 computer RPG! All hail the masters!


Cyberpunk 2077: Official Teaser Trailer

Here’s the note from Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED, that also accompanied the release:

The teaser shows how the Psycho Squad might acquire a new member. The Psycho Squad specializes in combating “psychos” – individuals who overuse implants and substances that boost or otherwise alter the human body. There comes a point when they overdose on these innovations, and their bodies start to rebel against their biological body parts as well as against all things organic around them. Simply put, they start killing people, who they now derisively call “meatbags.”

When a psycho goes on the rampage, strange things can happen. There’s going to be a lot of carnage, so the psycho might be taken down by regular police, but they’re not always able to get the job done. When things spin out of control, they call in MAX-TAC (Maximum Force Tactical Division), popularly called the “Psycho Squad”. And these guys are exceptional, these guys are crack troops. The fact that they’re proud of that name tells you a bit about their mindset. They wear a badge with their official emblem on their right sleeve, but their left is reserved for their unofficial Psycho Squad emblem. It’s primitively made and the image itself is on the crude side of things. It’s not unlike a badge special force operators might make and wear to distinguish themselves from the ranks of grunts in any theatre of war…

I still need to play the Witcher 2, CD Projekt RED’s last title. But this looks like an exciting new IP, can’t wait to hear more about it.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be released when it’s ready.

Remember Me, coming May 2013 from Capcom and Dontnod Entertainment, is a third-person video game starring Nilin, a mixed-race lady, in dystopian Neo-Paris in 2084. Nilin had her memories wiped by her former employer, but will use her skills as a memory hunter to alter her enemies’ memories and restore her own. Exploration and platforming are major parts of the game, so expect Mirror’s Edge-style parkour without Mirror’s Edge’s major failing: Spontaneous gun battles. Combat in the game is entirely hand-to-hand, with no guns, blood, or killing. Instead, players create combos on the fly in the Combo Lab (which touts over 50,000 different combos according to Capcom) and rely on on-screen displays to see how effective they are against an enemy. If you’re not super psyched for this game yet, let me give you a quote from the co-founder of Dontnod:

CVG: Remember Me’s lead character is a mixed-race female, which stands out against the crowd of white male heroes. There’s a sense that publishers attach risk to anything other than white male leads. At any stage in development, did you feel you needed to change the lead character’s appearance?

Jean-Maxime Moris: No, we wanted Nilin to stand out. I think these sort of issues become self-fulfilling prophesies; people saying that only white males sell so then everyone only does white males. If you start believing these things you get your head inside this cold marketing strategy that you cannot get your head around. It becomes a pretty fucking racist and misogynistic way of thinking about lead characters.

To summarize: Remember Me is a third-person cyberpunk dystopian parkour platformer starring a non-sexualized non-white lady who knows 50,000 ways to knock somebody out. Coming May 2013 to PC, XBox 360, and PS3.
