These walking simulator sequences are getting really tedious
You don't like staring at her ass? Are you... gay???? :hahano:

But I get you, she is irritating, needy and yells all the time. And she is always right in the end, making my "strong womyn feminist agenda writing" sense tingle far too often. :argh:

I prefer (old) Rogue. That's how you do a stronk independant womyn. Best waifu. Dat hip sway.

V: "Do you have any more jobs for me?"
Rogue: "Kid you had one job and fucked it up spectacularly. How would I look putting you on a crew? Go do what you... do best."

Sad.

Yeah, it was frankly a bit surprising how Panam casually made up an elaborate plan how to bring that transport AV down using a local contraption (and carelessly interrupting power supply to the city). All on her own, on the spot, like it was nothing out of the ordinary for her. V was basically a pawn in these missions.

While she slept no less! And in the end it didn't work and she spawns a SAM and shoots it down. Why not just start with that? :hahano:

That reminds me: has anyone played that mission without 10 tech?
For me that line replaced the yellow line and the dialog later did not really match what was happening. Johnny was ranting in the car to get away while we were already far away as if EMP burst were hitting us. Does something like that happen if you DON'T have the tech to ovenload it inside?

And, unless I mix it up, another example is the Riot club.
When Johnny takes over and goes there, it's a brightly lit neon stripclub (and when he has an accident after driving a few minutes he is still in front of it, because...reasons), but when the player gets access to it, it's a dim lit industrial club with a stage. :hahano:
Because the interior was made for Kerry's mission (and reused for Lizzy)

I had no music when I got there as well. And the bartender was complaining that he needed sound filtering implants to survive lmao

(I assume the music is Samizdat Radio, which is also funny, because that radio station consists of a total of 5(five) songs all by the same DJ)

Funniest part about that club is when you use the cameras: look at the DJ on stage, switch to the camera outside, switch back and... omg, a new DJ already! Didn't I see her outside 2 seconds ago? :hahano:

Well, to be honest, it did affect the AV. It probably might have used countermeasures against that rocket attack, were it not for the EMP pulse.

I did. You still overload it. Only V suffers a surge from each breaker/whatever. Eventually he's hardly able to move on his own.

I think my Tech was lower when I did that mission but I don't know exactly what's supposed to change. I went in, pressed some buttons (shocker, I know), then started getting distortions and Silverhand freaking out as we drove away.

P.S. Just for you.

BTW, if you decide to leave Silverhand in V(alerie)'s body, does it mean he is a tranny?

So it is exactly the same with or without the tech line.
To quote Johnny: "Look at me! This is my face of utter fucking surprise!":hahano:

And if your Valerie had a peanus to begin with, have you come full circle?

Reminds me of Mr "impressive cock"s line: "Your parts are either too small or too big."
I am sorry that her peanus intimidates you dude, at least Rogue did not complain. :hahano:

Fuck that Oda guy!! "shimEEE... shimmmEEY.... SHIMEEEEYY!!"

His fight really emphasizes how sluggish and and awkward movement is, avoiding his melee attacks with dodge is excruciating, feels like V is stuck in quicksand the whole fight. Oda finally bugged out at around 20% health and got stuck in mid air so I could just nail him in his stupid face with my gigantic sniper rifle. I guess I got lucky that he bugged out next to a platform so I could actually reach him to interact and continue mission.

For all this suffering, you could have just positioned himself from him behind one of those walls :lol:

At this stage of the game, Act 3, drives home how schizophrenic the design is. The "you are about to die, main quest is urgent, URGENT" is laid on really thick, I feel like doing anything other than finishing the game completely destroys any verisimilitude with the character and the story. But I could spend another 40 hours bumbling around Night City doing peoples laundry and rescuing stray cats...

This shit has gotta stop, if you wanna make 100+ hour open world game STOP making 'world is ending, or I am dying' main quests, do something that actually fits with narrative flow of open world design.

:brofist:

It's the same in almost every modern open world game now, starting from Witcher 2's "I need to rescue Triss ASAP, clock is ticking" and TW3 obviously all the way. And then you have, among others, "BOSS we received a contract to extract a prisoner from execution/Cipher's caravan is on its way/there's no telling(...)", "Orthur, you need to rescue Sean/John/Micah/Reverend/Tilly/the X is tonight", "I need to find Dad ASAP/Shaun ASAP/2nd Battle of Hoover Dam can happen any moment now!"

All of that just makes you appreciate Fallout 1's honesty. "You have X days and that's it."

Might be. Haven't been to that one yet, but since he ended outside Riot, I assumed he came from there. Welp, that explains how he did't get far in the car then. :hahano:

CDPR has never been know for quality of their product when it releases. Seems no one played Witcher 1 on release. And I don't mean Witcher 1 : Enhanced Edition. Vanilla Witcher 1 was borderline unplayable, combat was broken, quests were broken and even all the patches it got still didn't fix it. Enhanced Edition is how it should have launched. Cyberpunk 2077 is just CDPR simply just reminding us that they don't give a shit about the quality of their products.

"All I know is that there are a lot of very happy gamers in the PC space, which are the ones that are most visible to us," Newell said. "There are aspects of the game that are just brilliant, and it shows a tremendous amount of work. It's unfair to throw stones at any other developer, because just getting something as complex and ambitious as that out the door is pretty amazing. The PC version that I played, I had a lot of fun playing."

I played it at release. In fact, if I remember correctly, I even preordered the Witcher 1. I do rember following news of this game from this unknown (at the time) developer for a few years (first screenshots / concept art came out in 2002 or 2003).

I don't remember any game breaking bug, maybe I was lucky

If you read my past posts in this thread, you'll see this is far from true.

They do, their management does not.
