Sanboxes are tricky things. I mean, the label‚??s shared by Grand Theft Auto, Skyrim, Just Cause 2, and Mount and Blade ‚?? among zillions of others ‚?? but it means very different things in all of those cases. I was recently informed that it can also refer to a box full of sand, which isn‚??t a videogame at all but instead some kind of devilishly effective trap for children. So when CD Projekt Red started throwing the phrase around (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/10/19/cdp-augments-cyberpunks-name-location-combat/) in relation to the decidedly de-witched Cyberpunk 2077 (http://www.cyberpunk.net/blog/), I couldn‚??t help but wonder exactly what it meant. Fortunately, CDP detected the fluctuation in my neural implant and acted accordingly. By which I mean it answered my question ‚?? and also filled in a few blanks about the magnitude of Cyberpunk‚??s choices, how close it‚??ll come to exploring real-life issues, and whether all that snazzy art‚??s actually indicative of the final product.
