Finally, finally got around to playing this, it's OK until I got to 'The Heist' part of the main quest: Jesus Christ it's like a 3 hour movie, it's cut scene hell. Any more of these in game movies?
Main story quests are like that but you just completed the longest "movie" section if you want less movie more gameplay do gigs now that you completed the heist you finished prologue and unlocked the whole city and alll the fixers.

Never buy anything you want to mod on steam. use GOG which has normal "don't update" game that works great if you use galaxy or just use their installers to manually patch.

Seriously fuck steam.

"don't update" in steam means it won't update automatically until you press play button which then updates game breaking your mods.
Valve removed ability to play not updated games few years ago.

Only way to play un-updated game is for developer to release separate branch you need to pick in betas

Right, these are the update options in Steam:

Actually it's already fixed, the mods are working again. I guess that's a benefit of playing a game which is (still) popular.

I'm probably alone in this opinion, but for me Cyberpunk 2077 music is noisy garbage.

Just as Night City's ugly, motley building facades have nothing to do with the aesthetics of the original game, its music, chopped up and then remixed dubstep and has nowhere near the charm of classic synth music.

There is no atmosphere. There is a scream.

I would have said that when first playing the game, but I think actually the compositions are quite catchy, they grow on you. It may be cut up dubstep or whatever, but it's very well done for what it is.

Guise, is there a mod to remove Johnny Silverhands / Keanu Reeves from the game? 'The Hollywood Schtick' breaks 'muh immersiun' it's just plain annoying (granted it could be worse: Tom Hanks could have been there)?

Or should I just speedrun the game, uninstall and move on to Baldur's Gate 3?

I really think that a social justice consulting firm told Pondsmith to take out Silverhand and he got pissed off and made Johnny the main character instead

I think there are a few replacers that crop up now and then, e.g. this one just came out, and this. Haven't tried any of them. Whether they're usable will probably depend on how well the AI voice was done.

Nah, it's mostly garbage, but I still give CDPR props for original lyrical hip hop and outright ripping off NiN for the game.

Aesthetically...yeah, I guess you have a point. Cyberpunk belongs in the 1980s and what was delivered was basically planet iPhone, that chincy plastic pos bendy budget "s" model they roll to the welfare herd after the mainline model debuts. Works, just think they missed a golden opportunity not going full 80s brutal aesthetic.

I think GTA IV is much closer to concept of "modern dystopia" than Cyberpunk 2077. Probably because they started with an imitation of Blade Runner and then experimented chaotically, creating something neither retro nor contemporary.

To my recollection it's mostly just optional snippets of flavour text in conversations from the lifepaths, although some of them are entertaining enough, I think they have a C&C effect like once in a blue moon. There's more frequent reactivity in the dialogues with your attributes or skills (e.g. if you're high INT and an implied computer nerd, you might get a different, more nerdy way of finishing a quest), although it's still not as much as one would like.

There aren't really any mandatory mods any more, the devs pretty much incorporated many of the popular mod ideas anyway, so the game is good out of the box now (for what it is). But you can certainly tweak the gameplay (e.g. make it harder or whatever) with mods.

Hacking is still very powerful, but not quite as "hide in a corner and kill everyone with Contagion" powerful as it used to be. You can still play that kind of stealth hacker playstyle though, plus there are more action-oriented "script kiddie" hacker playstyles (Battle Mage styles, if you will) that synergize hacking with smart weapons and/or monowire, kind of suitable for Nomads and Streetkids. The various deck models are defined to fit the various feasible Hacker roles, and there are a fair amount of pre-defined synergies between some quickhacks (e.g. a damage quickhack immediately after a control quickhack will have higher damage, that sort of thing). There's also a kind of Blood Magic type of thing (Overclock) that takes health and gives more quickhack impact.

So, is this game finally worth playing after 3.5 years? Should I play it?

Few questions I would be happy to get answers for:
- is this playable without doing any shooting? I'm not talking about non-lethal playthrough, but maybe pure melee build, is it feasible? I hate shooting in games.
- any memorable moments the game offers? Stuff that makes you think about the game after you're done?
- are characters well written?
- how is side quest quality?
- how woke it is?
- can I play regular 2.0 and skip Phantom Liberty altogether, or would I be missing something important?

Thanks in advance.
