Devolver Trolled Rockstar on Twitter about publishing Red Dead 2 on PC
Rockstar Games is still pretty insistent that Red Dead Redemption 2 will only be coming to Xbox One and PS4, something Devolver Digital doesn’t seem to think makes sense. So Devolver Digital made a few hilarious tweets while replying to Rockstar’s Twitter announcement for Red Dead Online’s beta. They started by saying that they’d like to publish the “cowboy game” on PC, then went on to say that they’re originally from texas and know their horses and guns. Unfortunately, Rockstar has not replied to any of the tweets.

Too Much Cybernetics will Cause “Cyberpsychosis” in Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a system where players can augment their characters with cybernetic enhancements.

It seems too much can cause “cyberpsychosis”, which in turn produces detrimental effects on your character’s mental health. Having to go around buying these upgrades will come with its own consequences as well, which drives home the idea that technology isn’t as liberating as we think.
