Cyberpunk 2077 - CDProjekt's New Joint

Implicit bias?

The brown horse at the start of Witcher 3 is a mare (female).

There we go!

Yes, Roach is a mare in the books and in the videogames.

I think Roach is just the name he calls all horses he rides, right?

Yes, but the one at the start of Witcher 3 is a mare. There are some dialogue trees in some missions where Geralt refers to Roach in female gendered language.

During the game some choices may lead to Geralt acquiring a black stallion to replace the brown mare.

Wait, what? So Roach is an office, like President of the United States or Dread Pirate Roberts? I wish I didn’t know that. It’s going to affect my attachment to the horse in the Witcher games.


I didn’t play 1 or 2, but if the games are anything like show, Geralt is at least a few Roaches in by the time we reach that grown Ciri timeline.

Sounds like college weekends, circa 1979.

And yet, in the famous quest where Roach talks to Geralt, it’s a male voice. Which might explain why many people might consider Roach in Witcher 3 to be male.

Also, Roach was pretty clumsy and buggy, and as perks go, those ones are usually associated with males. ;)

I would have thought that Digital Foundry could not go to the Cyberpunk benchmarking well any more times, but this is actually great:

That patchword of a tech setup feels very thematic somehow.

Anandtech did a fun (if pointless) article on it in December

I dunno about mission, but it is possible to ride the rollercoaster with Johnny regardless, you just gotta fix it (there is electric box for it nearby).

The Pacifica residents are not there and the box is not able to be interacted with (I did do the gig on a previous playthrough) so it’s not doable at all.

Ya, Geralt names all of his horses Roach.

It’s going to be so weird restarting this in 2022 when all the major bug fixes and updates are done.

I fixed the box and drove it just before I went and did the Nocturne OP55N1 mission just fine.

Clearly CP2077 can be broken in many, many ways.

There’s a lot of bugs, I’d wait until 2077 ;)

you know what stylistically, the painted ads in cyberpunk 2077 reminded me of? skeevy italian softporn stuff advertised in heavy metal!
