Bit late on the CyberPunk/VA-11 HALL-A mention, that was Red's April Fools supplement and a fairly good one.

I love how they tried to blend Glitch City into The Time of the Red: GC is a contested neighborhood in NC, the Lilim robots are now full-borgs, the White Knights were a splinter off of the NCPD, Dana Zane ran with Silverhand AND Blackhand, most of NC's booze is now made using Karmotrine since CHOOH2 production is sucking up all the real stuff.

This was a labor of love from fans of the visual novel.
