    Wow. A tough question. Maybe I would even try to respond if I had played Cyberpunk...

    I would go out on a limb and say yes, despite not having played cyberpunk either

    Vendetta is great and it's the best pirate game there is.

    Cyberpunk is below average and it's a shit cyberpunk game (entire cyperpunkism is basically "i have a famous actor in my head and want to get rid of him because he's mean to me, but actually we like each other and become bros", everything else is extremely shallow "cyberpunk").

    Anyway as I wrote previous year on 'dex:
    I admit, I did encounter one a bit annoying bug late game after all, but I stand by the rest.

    Game is currently 60% off on Steam, but the reviews are all over the place. I don't think I have the patience to deal with this.

    Seeing as I love pirate themed games you have just sold another copy of the game. If it can capture even a small part of the magic I got from Sid Meier's Pirates! back in the day it will have been worth it.

    It's even better: you can buy Easter Egg 2021 bundle with Knights and Merchants, Two Worlds - Epic Edition, Earth 2150 Trilogy, Vendetta - Curse of Raven's Cry, Dream Pinball 3D, Gorky 17, Two Worlds II, Earth 2140, Two Worlds 2 Castle Defense, RoBoRumble, Earth 2160 , for half of what Vendetta costs by itself.

    https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/20537/Easter_Egg_2021_Bundle/

    Of the bundled games I can recommend Gorky 17, both Two Worlds can also be enjoyable, if not really great RPGs.

    The game is janky as all fuck, and combat reminds me of Redguard from 1999 but even worse, but I actually enjoyed the cynicism of some of the quests like the one where you help a crewmate to gatecrash the wedding of his ex and end up massacring a whole bunch of innocent people.

    A year longer and it could have been Two Turds in quality and thus decent enough(for what it is). As a result we have interesting quests here and there with a nice faction dynamic but little else. Still, it was passable when playing while working.

    Don't devote your spare time to it though.

    Damn, I shouldn't have purchased just Vendetta so quickly then! Do you guys know, is there a way to ask for a refund if the same game is part of a cheaper bundle?

    It gets worse. They had the same bundle on Fanatical.com for 1 dollar a week ago.

    Btw, did you guys play the Standard or the Deluxe Edition? Is that worth having? Probably the bundle contains only the standard.

    I just see the deluxe has some cosmetic DLC and one sidequest thing. Can't say I missed it not being in the actual game.

    I am pretty sure going from nun to prostitute is an improvement, not a fall.

    It's a pity the story of her creepy superior from the church in Bridgeport is never developed in any way. When I met this sly asshole I was sure there will be more to him. And yet he never appears again, after showing his obvious fascination with the indigenous tribes' cannibalistic rituals.

    Did you play it already? If you haven't really played it, you can pretty much refund it without question.

    I think you can refund if you have less than 2 hours of playtime or something in steam.

    Well, just tried for like 10 mins only. I managed to refund it (it was the first time for me to refund anything on Steam), it was a smooth process, I got the money back within half an hour of submitting the request, then bought the bundle instead.

    It deserves to be in ones library thanks to this song alone. Barely any dev/publisher would dare to include any politically incorrect stuff like this. Hilariously immature.

    Awesome song!
    I will buy this game just to show support for such politically incorrect content in games.


    Whats he gonna do with his hangin willie,
    We're gonna stop 'im feelin' silly,
    Never more a useless willie,
    early the mornin'.

    Play him a jig on a sailor's fiddle,
    That'll stuffen up the bit in the middle,
    His dick'll be so hard no need for a widdle,
    early in the mornin'.

    Hooray and up he rises, hooray, big surprises,
    Hooray and up he rises, early in the morning.

    Jerk 'im of but not too much,
    Noo to fust, no, just a touch,
    Get a maid to jerk 'im off,
    early in the mornin'.

    Hooray and up he rises, hooray, big surprises,
    Hooray and up he rises, early in the morning.

    Go and get sweet little Lucy,
    She's the one with the juicy pussy,
    Go and find juicy Lucy,
    early in the mornin'.


    Hooray and up he rises, hooray, big surprises,
    Hooray and up he rises, early in the morning.

    Put 'im in a boat and get 'im rowin'
    With young Sheila, she'll realy blow 'im,
    While he's rowin', she'll be blowin',
    early in the morning.

    Hooray and up he rises, hooray, big surprises,
    Hooray and up he rises, early in the morning.

    Let 'im finger Lucy,s clitty,
    Don't move down, cos then it's shitty,
    He can even suck her titty,
    early in the morning.


    Hooray and up he rises, hooray, big surprises,
    Hooray and up he rises, early in the morning.

    Rub his dick in blac gunpowder,
    Then soak that thing in old clam chowder,
    He'll be squealin' all the louder,
    early in the mornin'.

    Hooray and up he rises, hooray, big surprises,
    Hooray and up he rises, early in the morning.

    Hooray and up he rises, hooray, big surprises,
    Hooray and up he rises, early in the morning.

    Bolded best parts :love:

    now that thx to certain song i know id be buying it at some point and red properly into review I have some questions around ship:

    is it linear progression where there is clear bigger = better? Or can I be like han solo or in star traders where small ship can be hard but still viable.
    Likewise am I forced into big ship and big cargo space or can I focus on other activities than mercantile
