why dont they just do away with rpg elements
They already have in all the ways that matter. People don't go around calling Far Cry games RPGs, so why should they pretend Soyberpunk is one?

I've wondered the same thing. They've basically done it though. Vanilla Witcher 3's RPG elements were window dressing, at least at "Normal" difficulty (whatever it was called ingame).

All the various aspects of the game are light distractions that serve to bring some variance to what you do in front of the screen - some simple "follow the red trail", some simple button mashing and rolling, then some cinematic dialogue, then some "manage your breathing bar", then some simple brawling, then some more dialogue. Before you know it you've spent 40 minutes distracting yourself while taking part in an interactive movie.

We can download day one patch on steam since 00:04 am? I got scheduled download pending.
That timer keeps advancing though :lol: I think that's your download of the game you are talking about.

In the "update required (not queued)" section - I think that's the task to decrypt the game, and only then will the steam client check the version and if there is an update for that on the servers.

"RPG elements" seems like a euphemism for gameplay customization options, so I'll go with that. What I would've preferred to see is basically Deus Ex, where the more you lean into guns the more Doom-like the gunplay becomes, and the more you lean into stealth the more it turns into Thief, etc. This kind of sandbox game screams for such variety that CDPR have neglected and turned into a shooter where the customization is pointless window-dressing like Twitcher.

Is there really only one longterm romance option for straight males? Why even bother have a penis customization option if there's nothing to put it in?
A very FreeKaner point of view. I'm actually not the biggest fan of sticking dicks up in holes and would prefer more creative use of the fallus (whether mine or someone else's).
Put it in a meat grinder then.
You are the one with the footjobs.
Doesn't mean i don't ravage all the other paces lol. Also i do have a few more fetishes,tho they don't make me as hard as this one :) . How about you,bald monocled man from certain slav country ?
Ah, I don't want to see a split thread named "AwesomeButton's sex life"
That sounded like all the rape women in hentai that say NOOOO while wiggling in pleasure and wanting more. Soooo?

Cyberpunk 2077 the game that promised to be gta, fps and rpg. If you think it delivers any of this you are delusional. Shit fps, shit rpg, shit "gta-like".

Anyway, I'm gonna go to sleep, because my dreams deliver a more coherent and well written stories with better gameplay and graphics than this game ever will.

You need to lay off the hentai dude :lol: You remind me of that Friends episode where Joey's TV got stuck on the porn channel and him and Chandler got brainwashed.

This is exactly what I mean. Notice the timer advancing as time advances. I guess it will continue to advance until the game unlocks.

It does say "Downloaded 57.3 GB / 57.3 GB" This is your download of the preloaded game.

I m a bit confused now, is it 1 hour wait before I get to finally start downloading another 48 gig patch? Already got 10 gig update today(GOG version).
I'll believe it when I see it. So far it's 57GB+9GB with a XXXMB patch at release (on GOG)

Have to be honest
Despite all the shit and stupidity around this game, it really is an incredibly ambitious project
For that alone I am curious enough do give it a try

Not enough dopamine. Why have large improvements gained infrequently when you can drip feed those improvements over time to keep the player hooked on being just around the corner from their next perk point?
