We're only a few days away now from the release.
If you're playing on the XB1 you can try changing your location setting to New Zealand to play early. Apparently this has worked in the past for some players of games like AC: Valhalla. https://www.cyberpunk.net/us/en/
>>52088>witcher series, which had satisfying combat in 2 and 3
Tell me you're joking and I am to dumb to understand it.
If you walk up to random people on the street they will blow you off though. It's not a game problem that needs solving.
Cybertrannies 2077 will kill you for reading dialog boxes. That timer on responses is a quick time event. Read the selection and pick one or some scenes you just die. Meeting Royce I died because I was reading my options, so he just shot me in the face. That's how bad this game is. It kills you with dialog choices.
I was kinda excited for this, so I pirated it, it barely runs on my shitty computer, and the combat/jackie just weren't very fun. Maybe I'll try again later but so far this seems like a huge waste of potential.
Can you push succ downstairs like the madman did?
Finally, a worthwhile opinion on wizchan.
When your management and shareholders are retards.
Sony removes Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store and offers refunds to customers
>The technology conglomerate announced it was removing Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store until further notice and that it will be offering full refunds to customers who purchased the game digitally. The move follows a week of issues regarding the game's performance on last-gen console
The company will reap what it has sown.
It works mostly fine on PC and "next gen" consoles. With a patch or two they should be totally fine.
It just plain doesn't work on the old consoles and shouldn't have been released for them yet, if ever.
The ones to blame for this are the retards rushing them to release now even going so far as to issue death threats if they delayed the game again.
Overall this just reminds me of Vampire the Masquerade. That game was good but rushed, bugging as a result, and had more then a few issues. That said people will keep coming back to and enjoying the game for decades. Especially since Cyberpunk has open mod support.
The game is clearly not fine on any platform and that's without discussing how bad the gameplay it's self is. It's a game made for no one and is no fun allowed because MUH STORY which is a bad story with annoying characters.
Bloodlines wasn't rushed. It was ready for release before HL2 was but Valve wouldn't let any one release Source engine games before HL2 so it sat on the shelf for a while.
>People will enjoy the game for decades
Who's paying you to be this dishonest? It's not an enjoyable game. It's not as good as Deus Ex is for cyberpunk RPG and no fun allowed means it's not even a good GTA clone. It's just a miserable triple A game based on shilling you an actor who was never very popular or interesting. It's shilling.
Accusing everyone who dissagrees with your intentionally extreme opinion of being a shill make you look retarded.
No one is a shill here dumbass, they just have a different view from you.
Yes, it's so extreme it's the current most popular opinion on the game. It's a fundamentally broken game with little enjoyment to be found. Unless you enjoy staring at Jackie's ass as he walks you through yet another hour of dialog so you can play a find the hidden item mini game using security cameras or time rewind.
What an extreme opinion it is in 2020. Saying modern games which force long story elements down your throat aren't enjoyable. I must be so XTREME I have blast processing in my brain.
Microsoft gave me a refund even though I played about 45 hours. I'll probably buy it again next year if they fix it and have good DLC.
If you're on xbox just wait till it comes to gamepass which it probably will. That's what I'm waiting for, even if the game was good I still wouldn't buy it if it comes too gamepass a few months later like many games do, it's easy to see if a developer has one game come too gamepass really high chance their later ones will as well, so Witcher 3 came to gamepass, Cyberpunk will as well eventually.
I mean you are being as obnoxious as you can despite it sounding like you never picked up the game or even watched a review of it.
>>52170>staring at Jackie's ass as he walks you through yet another hour of dialog so you can play a find the hidden item mini game using security cameras or time rewind
I don't know what game you played but to me that's a pretty apt description. It's essentially a movie with occasional on-rails shooting segments that almost play themselves (in some instances they literally do, like the scripted van chase at the beginning of the game where it drives into a wall and explodes even if you didn't fire a single shot). I don't see what about this game could possibly appeal to anyone besides lowest common denominator normgroids looking for a netflix series that comes with the illusion of interactivity.
I mean for fucks sake ignoring the visuals (which aren't even that impressive for a game released in 2020) the game is objectively less sophisticated than GTA fucking 3. It's objective, you can't even argue against that when Cyberpunk gets absolutely embarrassed in the AI department by a game that's just about two decades old, now. In fact I guarantee that every single individual system that exists in Cyberpunk 2077 has been done a hundred times better in a different game. So it's just like, why the hell would you ever play this shit? Whatever it is that you wanted out of this game, you're better off playing something else to get it.
I think his complaint might be that Jackie dies early on, but then he's replaced by an even worse character. Jackie is an okay generic "mentor" character. The guy who voices him can act.
Keanu cannot. And what's sad is when you play as Keanu after 5 hours of slow walking it's pretty fun. Enemies drop fast and your punch becomes a hadouken. It's sad that 2077 would of made a fun 10 hour FPS instead of a 50 hour shit show.
It's a legitimate complaint and adequately represents the "tacked on" nature of many features and stylistic choices. When player penis configurability takes priority over actually modelling prevalent NPC characters, it shows how the devs were grasping at shock and meme factor rather then aiming to produce a game that is fleshed out in the most essential areas.
Or that they really don't give two shits about kids in the game world and they were clearly a after thought added last minute.
Projects are all about priorities. Kids weren't a priority.
>>52317>Projects are all about priorities. Kids weren't a priority.
Which is why I gave an example of their priorities… I spelt out why I felt kids aren't a priority to them. Where does this "Or" come from?
Despite the game being a "massive world full of rich and diverse characters" as developers and reviewers have testified, the ability to customize the user's ballsack prioritizing the easy development of a unique child body and face mesh set (Or even just childlike morphs for the adult face) shows that the devs disregard the most fundamental solution to diversifying crowds, which is to have a variety of armatures representing different body types, which goes double for the most obvious difference in human body variety: Adult Vs. Child. It's not that they don't care about kids, it's that they know Twitch streamers and other varieties of transsexual only need to see BIG DICK kill LITTLE DICK to be swayed in to paying $70+ for this hot mess. All other aspects of the game can be overlooked and underdeveloped, as they have been, resulting in a broken experience from top to bottom.
>>52318>easy development>Something that takes weeks in man hours to properly do>And then has to be tested in QA>Only for the models to be used a few weeks from launch by pedos for gross shit since the game is openly modable
Honestly they should have just not had kids in the whole game at all.
It's the solution most open world games choose and they clearly didn't have the resources to spare.
What a disappointment that even this place isn't free from shills dispensing industrial volumes of copium. How can anyone defend this kusoge?
I dunno man, I enjoyed it. It's not perfect, but I had a fun time playing it.
But yeah, it's a pretty much a "pretty picture" for high-end PC systems. Otherwise it's meh
What will the next let-down be? is that vampire the masquerade game still in development? I could see it being underwhelming as well
3? Blood Money is 3 (Contracts IO pretends doesn't exist).
The newer games do nothing for me honestly. They look kinda sterile compared to the older ones.
I know what you mean, they lack the atmosphere of the older games. But they are very intricately designed and they really grew on me over time. I don't really pay attention to the story and I instead try to roleplay a more noir-like experience.
Why would anyone play cyberpunk 2077 when we all live in cyberpunk 2021¿
Vampire was supposed to be released late 2021 but I wouldn't expect it to. Hardsuit went dead quiet for now. Back when I paid more attention to it the studio staff was busy ripping itself apart in a contest of who me-too's each other harder. Rumours abound, the game appears to be in shambles. It doesn't help that Paradox is being Paradox and White Wolf tailored the latest editions of paper VtM to appeal to a certain
demographic. I'd say expect nothing.
Personally I was looking forward to Dying Light 2 like a year ago but since then it was also exposed as a garbage fire in progress. Recent trend of general failure among the bigger eastern european studios was almost shocking to me. I used to believe they were heralding a better tomorrow for games. Looks like all the praise and attention they received over the course of 2010's led them to believe they were part of the extended cosmopolitan Game Industry™ now. To fit in better they westernized their mentality (and employees) and got rid of everything that used to make their games interesting and unique, despite being eurojank. This unholy union of western postcapitalist and eastern postsoviet resulted in a cursed mutt which seems to possess the advantages of neither, but faults of both. Just sad.>>52403
But my dear anon, the game is an integral part of the Cyberpunk Current Year experience. Without subjecting yourself to CD Projekt's product you won't feel the full weight of soulless corporate tentacles strangling every remotely enjoyable aspect of your life.
Just play Deus ex.
Lots of people have already done that.
On a similar note, are Human Revolution and Mankind Divided any good?
Human revolution isn't that much like the first one , but if you like stuff like dishonored you'll like it. Mankind divided is a major upgrade in the game play department, but is much much shorter so it feels a bit rushed sometimes. Ultimately it's more of the same though.
HR is just like game of the topic: bland, boring, console oriented.
Funny thing is that the much bashed Invisible War is much closer to the original. In fact only thing wrong with it is the UI made for controller and fairly bad voiceacting.>>52409
Do it again, with Shifter perhaps, which throws some random elements into the game.
I've played Deus ex probably 50 or more times through, half of those enjoying it, others speedrunning.
On a side note: Deus ex is the first and only game which linux version I've preordered.
Or bought for that matter, if you don't count quake 2, q3a or doom 3, of which you didn't need to buy seperate linux version.
But alas, Loki went bankrupt before finishing the port.
They are good from a gameplay perspective, but their narratives are much weaker than the original Deus Ex. The story in both the newer games is just burped at you and doesn't really provide as much room for thought as the original.
They're fun to play though, Prague in particular is a pretty good hub to dick around in.
apologies for the long reply
mankind divided… that freaking game. maybe i'm stupid but i didn't know you could throw things at the lock to break it, shooting it also works.
i broke into an apartment, punched some boxes and maybe the person that lived there was trying to hide the vent but it lead me to a previously sealed off area that required me to go through a checkpoint being guarded by some thugs.
well not really off limits because you can
a.have a shoot out with them
b.snitch them out to the law enforcement
c.do the side quest
d.pay the fee
f.all of the above
g.find the vent by accident like i did
perhaps there are other alternative routes i have yet to find, maybe i'll try the sewer system next.
if it were a rockstar game that would mean its mission failed
I don't expect anyone to remember but there was a time when CD Projekt were swearing on their mums that their scam of a game would be exactly like that except in an open world.
It's so bad it made Crowbcat drag himself out of retirement for one last job.
By the way fuck the term "immersive sim." Buzzword + buzzword= retarded newspeak. Stab anyone who uses it.
Nah I would rather just stab you for being a jackass.
Please stab me so I don't have to go to work tomorrow
