Cyberpunk 2077 Stream Leaves Fans Unimpressed

Earlier today, a handful of Cyberpunk 2077 devs jumped on CD Projekt Red’s official Twitch channel to provide an overview of the game’s upcoming 1.3 patch and the new in-game content the studio plans to make freely available to everyone who downloads it. Like most things having to do with the notoriously broken game, however, the underwhelming showcase seemed to leave viewers wanting more.

This Cyberpunk 2077 Frasier Crane mashup is too good

It was only on the second watch that I noticed. The video embedded below doesn’t just mash together Frasier Crane with the world of Cyberpunk 2077, it creates a cover of “Never Fade Away” from the game’s soundtrack which is so convincing I didn’t even notice the lyrics had been changed to “tossed salad and scrambled eggs.” Read more

That means if there’s another big Witcher game out there on the horizon, we may not hear about it for quite a while yet. Honestly? Good. Read more
