    It wasn't my first choice TBH (my first choice was
    Show Spoiler
    going with the nomads because it felt like a better idea to make matters in my hand
    since that is basically how played most of the game) though
    Show Spoiler
    in the long run all endings end up similarly with you waiting to die at some point down the line -with the exception of the suicide ending of course- which i guess lives some room for DLC
    ).

    As for the Arasaka ending i actually didn't found it stupid (it was my next choice) because
    Show Spoiler
    it makes the most sense that since they made the biochip and have its inventor available right there, they'd be in the best position to fix my case - the only issue was if they'd do that and it all relied on if you trusted Hanako or not, but the way the game presents Arasaka and Takemura, they never really lie to you... which ends up being the case in the ending too, they did kept their promise and try to fix you you after all
    .

    Johnny, Misty, etc told you it is a stupid choice, but they have beef with Arasaka, however that is because
    Show Spoiler
    of Jackie's death for Misty, which only happened because of the heist and not because someone from Arasaka woke up and killed Jackie for no reason -if anything V and Jackie killed way more Arasaka men during the heist- and because of Alt's abduction for Johhny, but V has done similar, if not worse, things during the game for fixers
    . And besides, when Johhny says that pretty much everything is a stupid choice during the entire game, he loses a bit of credibility for me :-P.

    You can't save during combat though, you need to move far away (and this isn't always possible).

    FYI, Caesar and Cicero never saw an Anglo-Saxon in England. They were a Germanic tribe that settled in England in the 5th century.

    But whatever they did see does clearly still exist in Bongland. The Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings apparently weren't completely successful with their efforts to cleanse the island.

    So V's got cigarette burns on his upper inner wrist. I bet it connects with his mentioning a shitty father. Figures.

    The burns shouldn't look like that after so long, though. They should look like normal scar tissue.

    There's one Epic set that lets you hover but I haven't tried them yet.

    I let the voodoo boys all get zapped and the game is all like "Whoa netwatch tricked you!" Huh? motherfucker they did exactly what I hoped they would do.

    Crafting and rare door openings seemed pretty useless early game, but I kept going with the tech stat since I was committed. Have to say, after getting the perk that lets you craft epic items I made a revolver that nearly doubled the damage output of what I had before, along with insanely high crit bonuses. Seriously like +50% crit chance and +70% crit damage bonus. I don't know if stealth hits automatically count as crits or not, and it probably doesn't matter since I kill 99% of enemies in one shot already, but still... that was a fucking huge upgrade. Shame there's no way I'm getting 20 in tech since my playlist requires maxing cool and reflexes.

    Anyway... it's still probably worthless overall, you find plenty of great weapons and I'll probably find a legendary revolver in 10 minutes that beats it, but for a hot second there it was a nice dopamine hit when the numbers went up up up.

    Maybe in base damage numbers, good crit bonuses are very rare

    Since everyone else is playing this garbage, I decided to check out something similar (SEVERAL Codexers like PorkyThePaladin have described CP77 as an incredible playable movie.)
    DETROIT: Become Human. The world design and settings are fantastic and the story is immaculately told through gameplay as only David Cage can deliver. The amount of C&C is UNBELIEVABLE, from small actions affecting the present and future, to large actions like the deaths of characters significantly altering how things play out. The game takes all these choices into account and is VERY satisfying.

    Tried it when it went free on PS+. Never managed to finish a single David Cage game and this was no exception.

    I mean, that's kind of on you though isn't it? I'm not suggesting you have to LARP but I don't understand this approach to games. I agree that again, the game should be prepared for you using the super jump / double jump to bypass stuff, and have responses to it (and NPCs should ideally use those augs themselves). But I'm happy with missions that give you all these options, and frankly in a game like this which I'm unlikely to replay more than 1 time I'm happy that I can explore those options in one-two playthroughs. Personally I choose to look at it as impressive that the mission doesn't break the moment you essentially "skip" a checkpoint or don't use one of the paths the game tries to feed you. But maybe that's just my low standards for AAA gaming. :lol:

    They way they zeroed in on the 8MB limit, in holiday season no less, made me fabulously optimistic™ for the game's future. The schizo disconnect between the "story" and the "open world" is still there, crafting and itemization are still turbo autistic, etc. but the foundation is decent and I'm hopeful.

    Just started a very hard run. The game is in dire need of a proper hardcore tryhard mode with consumable restrictions. Official or user made.

    You can impose those restrictions by yourself, like 20 perks max per playthrough, 5 healthpacks max at any time or some other shit. Funny enough that is what JRPG fans do to make their fav games harder with those lvl1 runs and so on.

    While they tried to downplay the issue in the beginning, people refunded the game because of the error. Also, the expectation that the game wouldn't be able to bear any expansion content without breaking if this limit stayed in place started circulating, and that's bad for business.
    The suggestion by that moderator to just not play the game certainly didn't help their case.

    I somehow doubt it. I don't think the game has any meaningful branching in its main quest. Also, I don't even know what

    had to say. I was still a bit trigger-happy after that encounter with Little Miss Hulk. Fortunately it's a "kill first - ask questions later" kind of game.

    Some Youtuber played the game for 183 hours and then proceeds to rant about how awful it is. When asked why he played it for 183 hours he says "I had to complete everything on the map".

    Pretty sure its because of people like this we have such garbage games these days.

    If you leave an NPC on low-ish health to duck behind cover, they do occasionally use healing. There's no animation but there is the sound effect. Usually they die too quickly though as they leave it much too late. As with much else, and you suggest there, I suspect there's plenty of room for tweaking towards something a bit better. Like NPCs who avoid bullets by using time cyberware but are quite happy doing it while popping away from a distance with a low damage pistol rather than using it to enter and leave melee.

    And I figured out combat regen does work its just terrible and a waste of time and perks. It takes a long time to start, its extremely slow to regen, and it only goes to like 60% of max health.

    Sad.

    I had an enemy flanking me succesfully for the first time in 92 hours yesterday. Like he literally decided to evade the frontal encounter and moved on my flank through a side alleyway. I was so shocked I missed 2 shots and he killed me. Might have been just a pathfinding bug I don't know sure as hell took me by suprise

    I've seen similar but also seen them, on the street spawns, leave their designated area and killing them triggers the police response teleporting in. It's like there's piles of derp to dig through at times. The AI certainly seems to be more aggressive (better?) in buildings, perhaps it's a distance to player thing where further away is more likely to leave the AI popping up and down in cover throwing out the odd grenade.

    Driving through the streets of Night City with a car is hell. Holy shit, the people and the the other vehicles are just obstacles, nothing more. It becomes an exercise in frustration trying to avoid NPCs that jump in front of my car trying to give me a wanted state. It's all one big obstacle course. There's no AI in this game.
