My Keanu view:
Keanu meant Johnny was in EVERYTHING but before Johnny was always the focus of the game.
It is simpleSo as I understood it, the whole story was essentially started with the Voodoo Boys wanting to contact Alt.
But why exactly? What was the purpose of risking so much just to get to Alt?
If it was explained, I must have missed it, and it seems pretty important since none of that story would have had happened without it.
If anyone can enlighten me. Thanks!
One major thing worth mention, that the NetWatch wanted Johnny engram. Yorinobu wanted to sell this tech to NetWatch, and their requirement was both - Relic 2.0 and Johnny Silverhand Engram specific. I guess that VDB found out about this deal as they are in constant war with NetWatch, and the rest was told accurate by neocyril.
My guess that NW wanted Johnny Engram with the same goal to lure out Alt, and i belive that further story it might move in Blackwall direction.
There is net but not internet as we know it... it is bunch of nets and not one huge internet. Like Arasaka-net or Millitech-net.... Got it? Its just bunch of networks but you may gain access to a network by finding an entry point from a connection or straight up establishing a physical entry point.
And once again, I disagree. Those plot points and the lore supporting them had all been established long before Keanu was ever involved with the project. Claiming anyone of them was hastily written to accommodate Reeves blatantly ignores the history of the game.
that sounds like a case of bad rushed writing. cdpr definitely has their work cut out aside from the bugs and glitches that currently plaguing the gameAgreed. I will make this more easy to understand, the problem is not at Keanu, but at CDPR have no time to finish the whole story.
If a deal is the only thing Yorinubu want, he have many choice, but a Relic have the soul of Johnny? It doesn't make any sense.
The truth is Yorinubu want more, so as the Netwatch and VDBs, but we may never know the real motive.
VDBs told us they want to chose "the right side" between human and AIs, I believe that. But it's not enough, they can have much more plan which is better than steal the Relic, VDB suddenly can't realized that Saburo would rather nuke the NC than lose the Relic. Especially Alt never care their lives and kill them while they fight with Netwatch, actually both of them ...
CDPR just use the base stand of VDBs and NW , pretend it to the motive, bad guy doing bad things, actually there is no reason.
In my opinion, VDBs and NW was a strong story line which is a epitome of the war between human and AI, they can't finish it, so they make VDBs a quick death and end the story line. That's it
