    it was at 305 before review went online. I think it was at nearly 300 when I started posting it in random places across codex

    True. But i wonder will it satisfy CDPR or their next game's main quest will be even shorter.
    Are you sure they even think in such terms?
    Forgive me my ignorance but how is it connected to CDPR? Wasn't this game made by a german studio? Or you meant that CDPR better be back to just publishing other's decent games?

    As someone who has more or less absolutely no idea what this game is about and how it plays, the revio was very informative and made it very clear to me that this game is shit. I strongly disliked Twitchers 2 and 3 and never finished them precisely for their bad gameplay, despite finding positives in the story/presentation, so it's much more relevant to my interests for someone to dissect the mechanics here rather than vomit out another disco elysium revio.

    Without playing it, you have no idea if the game is shit. All you read was his opinion tbh.

    CP 2077 has its high points and its low points. The review barely mentions any positives though which is disingenuous because the positives are there. Whether or not they outweigh the negatives is completely subjective.

    cdpr started by publishing western games onto polish ground. You can link potato infestation on this site to many rpgs that were released this way. They were also doing cheap good games thing, nice titles that did cost 2 kebabs at a time. Gorasul was among them. As such one can wonder why its not part of GOG

    Pretty balanced review there, lukaszek. A couple of observations:

    Gorilla Arms do help in opening doors. You either have the requisite BODY attribute or you can use the Gorilla Arms if you installed them.

    The faroff traffic isn't actual traffic, it's just distant LOD beset by terrible irony - as you come closer, it's swapped out with actual... nothing. I didn't notice cars spawning in around me, though, maybe that's a performance thing.

    Or they'll drive into you.

    Thank you! Between the lack of cruise control, the navigation being on the corner minimap and the limited map overview, you'll be turning around more than James May in a medieval italian city.

    Hoo boy! That's one trick I learned early - don't pick them up! If you see a readable with the Take and Read options, you first hit F5 to quicksave, and then you hit Read. You don't actually have to read the thing, typically, just trigger the flag for quest purposes.

    No, Gorilla arms absolutely DO NOT let you bypass Body requirements on opening doors.

    That's a pretty fair review.

    After a few weeks of not playing it, my opinion hasn't changed. It's a 6-7/10 game right now, but it could be an 8-9/10 game a year or two down the line if they get their fingers out of their asses and finish/polish the bloody thing. It's a flawed game in multiple respects, but it has its moments here and there (especially in the story presentation, but also in terms of fairly addictive open world combat, even despite the flaws) and you can have some fun with it.

    (And of course nothing beats cruising the rain-soaked streets of Night City on your Kusanagi listening to Miles Davis - NOTHING. It's a peak videogame experience.)

    But whether they will finish it or not is anyone's guess.

    I vaguely remember you deflecting and diffusing any criticism of CDPR games in a CP2077 pre-release thread. That was a year or more ago but I see not much has changed. You're either brainwashed or a mole, possibly both.

    Shilling is a full time job. It pays well for low effort.

    Are you sure? Okay, it's possible I got that wrong, wasn't paying that much attention. All I recall is that in Riders of the Storm I'd just installed Gorilla Arms and was suddenly able to pry open doors. So how does it work then?

    Ah, the old pickle jar trope. But I don't know what to tell you, I'd never been able to force open a door before, and after installing the arms aug I was doing it left and right. Maybe it was after I upgraded my stats and I just forgot, I neglected my attribute points for a long time.

    But the question then remains - what do they do? Other than let you clock civilians in a game that has guns?

    Ah, well, that's underwhelming. Though I suppose that's not a surprise by now.

    I Suppose you can put mods in the Gorilla Arms to change your type of damage, but that doesn't really matter in this game, so...

    That's hilarious considering what you just quoted was hardly glowing praise for the game. Like I said, it has high points and low points.

    Try harder, Mr Edgelord.
