    They actually cut all the original classes and instead merged them into a single uninteresting class. The game even still has the nerve to call characters by their classes yet V never gets called by theirs unless apart of their lifepath but it has no bearing on their chosen skills.
    Originally the game wasn't going to do that and Pondsmith was on record stating a build exists where the game had all of the original CP2020 classes intact. We'll likely never see that build but it does allegedly exist. Obvious CDProjekt couldn't handle it and so they just gave up. To be fair to them though they did pick one hell of a PnP RPG to base a game on its just people expected them to be a bit better at it than what they ended up doing and for that alone it is a massive waste of potential. This really could've been the game we were waiting for but alas it fell into the usual trap of AAA development. What a shame.

    AVX instruction that game does not use but still it turned on anyway.
    I remember exactly the same about Skyrim lol - I don't remember instuction, but it was all the same - it was on or off, and ate resources.
    Nobody rememeber this?

    This game has no real RPG mechanics at all. I guarantee you, you can finish it without spending a single attribute point or acquiring a single skill - on the hardes difficulty to top it all off. I don't have a "build" myself. I've put a few into stealth dmg bonuses and a few into hacking and that's about it. I dont' even use those stealth related bonuses since there is an instakill option. I bought a perk that lets you move faster when crouching, but i don't think it's working at all. i don't notice any speed. i'm playing on max difficulty and i have no problems whatsoever.

    I'm actually happy with CP2077. No Man Sky 2 is as entertaining as the first time around.

    If anyone is in lack of shadenfreude i highly recommend Cyberpunk reddit.

    I've noticed that too and you're 100% right there. I don't even feel compelled to max out any attribute so maybe its better to go jack of all trades in this there's nothing in the higher ends that screams to me that I want that ability badly. The cyberwear however...

    My fault for biting the bullet so soon, but maybe someone can give me some advice.
    Maybe it was already written somewhere, but I'm not reading all this shit.

    On my headphones I have a weird sound behaviour, where the front and rear channels sound very muted, barely audible. To hear NPCs talk well, I basically need to turn my side to them. And I almost can't hear V speak. Yesterday I got rid of the Win10 weird reverb shit, but the problem with directional sound and very weak front and rear persists.

    Can someone offer any advice?

    Good mod. CP2077 has this "washed" out color balance similar to TW3. This reshade fixes it:

    Grimoire is a better 100 hour open world RPG.

    game is unplayable accroding to my german friend:

    Als ich die Gullideckel in Cyberpunk gesehen habe ist mir direkt aufgefallen, dass diese mit Beton gefüllt sind. Außerhalb Deutschlands gibt es sowas kaum bis nicht. Bei näherer Betrachtung ist dann Eindeutig um was es sich dabei handelt: Schachtabdeckungen der Klasse B125, die nach DIN 4271 gebaut sind. Siehe Foto(Text verpixelt um Spoiler zu vermeiden): Foto


    When I saw the manhole covers in Cyberpunk, I immediately noticed that they were filled with concrete. Outside of Germany there is hardly any such thing, if at all. On closer inspection it is then clear what it is: Manhole covers of class B125, which are built according to DIN 4271. See photo (text pixelated to avoid spoilers): photo

    Re. V's female voice acting, being goofy and trying to sound "badass" - it's actually oddly appropriate for the character I've got, who's a Corpo out of her depth, but it probably sounds naff if you're doing a street kid or a nomad who's supposed to be genuinely badass. But it occurs to me that maybe I've drifted into playing a Corpo who's out of her depth precisely because of the voice acting! :)

    What I'm finding most irritating the more I'm living with the game is, as some are saying - the UI. CDPR just can't do easily readable/functional UIs for some reason, you have to actually peer at everything to make sense of it and it's a bit headache-inducing; the layout doesn't seem to stick in the mind and become familiar. I don't feel I'm getting more familiar with the UI as I use it - every time I open up inventory or character tabs it feels just as baffling and fussy as the last time.

    Lmao, yesterday I was killing npcs in front of the Afterlife bar and not a single cop appeared. The game is a buggy mess right now.
