Cyberpunk 2077 - Partying while gaming with Keanu Reeves
Techno has an impact on a lot of media. It can influence a story in such a way it will take control. The underground polish scene and many more became mainstream because of one game: Cyberpunk 2077. A game set in the future where humans enhance themselves with cyberware.
Partying While Gaming
Never have I wanted to party more during a game while playing Cyberpunk 2077. From the first moment I touched the techno radio station, I fell in love. Because of the futuristic setting it fits so well in the world building and immersion. Never have I ever wanted to break my window and drive shamefully across and into whatever crosses my path. Never have I stopped in a game just to enjoy the music.
If any techno lover has a dream to experience the most epic action scenes and kick ass, this game is it. Whenever the bass drops you’re ready to go, just the same as in the club. With every kick of the beat and every bullet you fire, the adrenaline just skyrockets. It feels like a constant rush or fix you eventually aim to experience again.
Cyberpunk is Techno
When you think about massive computer networks, corrupt corporations or governments and augmented humans full of cyberware you kind of automatically start to think about Techno. Don’t you? A futuristic setting, with its people struggling to survive. Doing everything within their power to escape the grip on themselves. A story about the people. Exactly what Techno is all about.
The weird thing is you probably wouldn’t disagree when you experience it. The techno pushes you just as it pushes your character to hold on. To continue no matter the effort. The playlist is varied in such a way you feel like you’re at a rave. Raving through the world, through the enemies and lastly through the story.
This famous guy has a crucial role in the game as Johnny Silverhand, a forgotten legend trapped in your head. In some sections of the game you will play as him. Like some other characters, he has a unique soundtrack. When this beat kicks in, you are ready to start a revolution! The cello grabs you in such a unique way in combination with the bass and kick, it is a deadly cocktail. During these moments everything is fast-paced and you try to follow the rhythm. Johnny has a special reload spin that blends with the soundtrack. Extremely satisfying Johnny Silverhand a “Champion of the People”.
