    TBH you've already voiced your opinion once so there is no point in parroting it ad nauseam. I would kick you in the teeth as well.

    Given the press release info, COOL is not a dump stat. I imagine Tech, strength/constitution be since we can just buy our way with augmentations and equipment. They've cut Emphaty after all.

    He's a local petty tyrant 'round there. On the forum though, there are more agile moderators to ban you first. Sard just manages thread deleting and, ahem, "consolidating" whenever he doesn't like to see.

    Do you have this sort of reading comprehension problems with all kinds of texts, or is it just codex posts? I'd like you to point out where in above quote it was even implicitly said that the CRPG should adhere to the pnp rules slavishly.

    I merely wrote that style is a central concept in the pnp, and therefore it's only natural that many people who are familiar with the pnp setting expect to see carefully designed aesthetic choices when it comes to the personal style also in the CRPG.

    And if extra chromosomes wouldn't prevent you from reading the excerpt original manual, "style over substance" is only a motto, slogan, credo, or tenet of the original pnp. Not a mechanical hard and fast rule.

    The second edition is almost 30 years old, not 20. Don't feel down.

    They literally said it fifteen times or so, it's not an FPS, it has a first person perspective. Like which part you people don't understand ? You're acting like the third person perspective is completely irrelevant with action elements. Funny fact is that all of you whining about the perspective (I said "perspective" three times), if it was third person, you will all be like: "Woooo I can't wait" without seeing any gameplay footage. Just chill...

    FPP is incline. Just the mere fact that it's not going to be a cover shooter increases my optimism about three thousand percent.

    All in all it does sound promising, but these previews don't mean much until they show some actual footage. I don't have that much faith in CDPR when it comes to combat or RPG mechanics, but they pretty much rebuilt their systems from scratch with every Witcher game, and with the PnP ruleset to guide them there's at least a chance they might end up with something decent.

    Okay, scratch that last part.
    I'll be more than happy if melee combat feels even nearly as good as in Dark Messiah or Chronicles of Riddick. It probably won't, but they can't use the perspective as an excuse.

    I propose we campaign their forums for a better alternative than either first person view or over the shoulder view. Let's demand the game be made primarily for a 2d isometric view.

    The funny thing is that most people complaining would probably be somewhat satisfied by being able to have a free camera, just like good old Morrowind, etc. did it.
    They cannot seriously expect them to change the whole gameplay to TPP. Or they do, cause most people are idiots anyway...

    Third person = more popular with storyfags/LARPers. It's more ~emotionally engaging~ when you can see your character. This change will definitely piss off a lot of the sort of people the Codex likes to make fun of.

    She should also set the rear sight to the highest setting, so the gun will shoot harder.

    All texts on English, since it's not my native language and sometimes I can't get meaning of text right ( English lessons in school and University sucked, all I know was learned by me in Internet).This seems to be a case. Sorry.

    More like my laziness and absence anybody who would playing this game in radius several thousands kilometers prevented me reading this manual.

    Just like i said, Mass effect Andromeda is written all over Cyberpunk 2077. Hostile action against negative feedback= Check, Huge bugs on trailer= Check

    This game will flop harder than flipflop. Unless they add Third person view or isometric view.

    Oh FFS, it's Cyberpunk 20-fucking-77 with all sorts of body modding and alternative cultures and we're still stuck in the gender fucking binary? Give the players two or three voice choices (identifiably male, female and androgynous, maybe even a digitized one) and leave the gender completely up to the player, already! Even better, add gender-coded stats to attires.

    I almost went WTF on this but then again, maybe it can be explained as an abstraction for aiming accuracy? As in tighter grip = more accurate shots = more damage to vitals? I guess it will depend on whether there will be HP-bloat and grind.

    Come to think of it, that could be read as "the increased grip strength upped the damage of her guns", if you know what I mean :tranny:

    Sounds more like a little bit of non-consensual sexual engagement, to be honest.
