Dr Disrespect reveals the Cyberpunk 2077 life path he’s planning to take

Cyberpunk 2077 will offer players three different “life paths” for their characters throughout the game, and it seems like streaming sensation Dr Disrespect already has his mind made up about which faction he’ll be joining.

It seems like every time CD Projekt Red comes out with more information about their massively-hyped upcoming RPG, it manages to be one of the internet’s most discussed topics of the day. This was true on August 10, after the second “Night City” live stream from the game’s developers.

One of the details revealed was the “lifepath” system, which offers three defining options for players to choose as the backstory for their character. These include Nomad, Corporate and Streetkid.

It didn’t take the Doc long at all to decide which path his character would be taking. As soon as he saw the three options, he immediately picked Corpo as his first starting choice.

Video starts at 6:43 for mobile viewers:

“I’m definitely going Corpo, to start my sh*t off, I’m definitely going Corpo,” Doc said after taking one look at the factions. “Easy decision.”

It seems to have been the Corpo’s aesthetics that drew Doc in, as the Two-Time took an instant liking to the sleek, Champions Club-approved design of their vehicles, equipment and hideouts.

“What is this thing? Look at this thing,” the streamer said as he examined one elegant craft. “This looks like my tanning bed in my garage.”

Cyberpunk and Dr Disrespect, a match made in heaven?

Lifepaths aside, Doc does seem very impressed with Cyberpunk so far and the work that’s gone into it, saying he can’t wait to play it at max settings on his “$350,000” monster of a PC.

“Pretty amazing, the scope of creating a video game of this scale, and how much goes into it,” Doc reflected. “When you get a good developer like them, CD Projekt, you kind of have to appreciate all the details.”

We’re getting closer and closer to Cyberpunk’s current November 19 release date, and we can’t wait to see what kinds of speed, violence, and momentum Doc brings to Night City – even if he does go as a bougie Corpo.

TikToker claims David Dobrik stole his designs for Dispo app

A popular TikToker is claiming that he came up with the design rebrand for YouTube Star David Dobrik’s ‘Dispo’ photo app, and even met with the influencer before seeing his ideas used in the final product.

Dobrik’s ‘Disposable’ app came out in December 2019, and was recently rebranded as ‘Dispo,’ a photo-sharing social media app with a retro spin on your regular Instagram clone.

Instead of being able to see and edit your pictures instantly, you have to wait until 9 AM the next day for them to “develop,” and can’t touch them up beforehand – much like a disposable film camera, hence the name.

Despite the creative idea, Dobrik is coming under fire from those who think he stole some of the designs for his Dispo rebrand from TikToker ‘karimxismail,’ based on a series of TikToks posted before the app came out.

Back on Sept. 18, Ismail posted what was basically a five-part video application attempting to get the attention of Dobrik to work on Dispo, a name he suggests during the above clip.

The YouTuber even commented on one of Ismail’s TikToks a day later on Sept. 19 calling his ideas “dope,” adding further credibility to his side of the story where he got completely cut out of the deal.

Neither mentioned the project again until news broke that Dispo had received a $4 million investment from Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s venture fund.

Shortly after that announcement, Karim posted two TikToks detailing his experience with Dobrik ahead of the brand’s reveal, claiming he met with the YouTuber and Natalie Mariduena, Dobrik’s assistant and business partner. According to him, both saw his ideas/designs and “loved them.”

But after a “brief correspondence,” Karim said that the team told him they were “going in a different direction.” He noted that Dobrik and his team did trademark the Dispo name six days after his initial video, but he doesn’t seem to be upset with David for potentially using his idea at all.

“They said they came up with it first,” Karim said about the Dispo name. “Whatever the names end up being, I know David would never take the features or designs I created. Now let me make it abundantly clear, I was a David Dobrik fan and I still am.”

As one would expect, some debate has broken out on social media between those who think the YouTuber shamelessly swiped the name and those who are adamant in defending Dobrik’s credibility.

However, Dobrik himself hasn’t commented on the issue at the time of writing, and as this scandal doesn’t seem likely to derail Dispo, we wouldn’t count on him saying anything at all.
