  1. Can someone please explain how to use the Ash Summons/spirits. My character just looks confused when I try to ‘use’ one, can’t bind them to a staff or weapon, can’t memorise them at checkpoints etc. Just no idea what I’m supposed to do with them, also can’t see a stat requirement I might be missing.

    I wasn’t too interested in this remaster, but the above, from the Digital Foundry overview, means I’m actually quite intrigued. I always prefer playing a game as it looked and felt at the time, perhaps with a handful of modern QOL improvements, but never with a super-hi resolution modern display making everything seem overly clean and sparse.

     

    If you can make the game look the way it did in the nineties, then I’m really tempted to give it a try. I’m really impressed by the effort Nightdive have apparently put into this. 

     

    Absolutely, that quote is ticking all the right boxes for me.

    It really is. Someone said earlier fps tanks in Lizzie's. I'm not sure what was that about. Game was fine, not a single drop. Watched a video which shows what the RT mode brings, there's tons of things that get shadows and that is why the world feels so much grounded and "full". 


    Yeah. I’ve now done the heist, the interlude and the car chase after the interlude (all big set-pieces) and the ray-traced frame-rate has been solid throughout. I have completely disabled all aim-acceleration though, it’s awful and twitchy even on low settings and the controls are much better without it.

    I spent 120 hours getting to the title screen on my most recent file, then decided to take a break from the game because I was a little spent.

     

    But yeah, that would have been a nice gesture.


    I don’t even know how that’s possible, I just started a new character and did everything in about 7 hours with a lot of pratting about in menus. I know they let you loose but it doesn’t feel like there’s much to do at that point. 

  5. It seems I’m out of step with the forum as vastly I prefer the 30fps quality mode, having felt the same way about the next-gen version of Control as well.
     

    For me the appeal of Cyberpunk is the immersion in the world, not the combat, and there’s a real depth and texture to the image from the combination of ray-tracing and motion blur mode that’s almost completely missing from the performance mode. Whenever I flick between them it’s like everyone turns into plastic action figures. Maybe I’ll be tempted to flick back during some of the bigger setpieces, but I’ve started a new character and I’m still in the prologue.

     

    The other game-changer is the HDR which does much improved, on Xbox at least. Having some actual shadows for all those neon speculars to pop against makes a huge difference.

    Yes, but as I’d explained I was carrying 2x kinetic guns and getting punched to bits trying to find some plasma. In the end I hit him with shock cores then grapple punched him to death. In one.
    Anyway, thanks for the patronising tone, I found quite a few of them hard, just telling me they’re easy doesn’t help.  The rest of game was easy enough, but I’m only playing on heroic. 


    You should be using the dash to retreat when he goes for a swipe, allowing you to unload into him whilst he misses. I didn’t actually use the motion sensor for either cloaked elite fight (also playing on heroic).

    Anyway, my Crystal Ball has spoken and so it shall be! Folk on here laughed when I said the Xbox One and Kinect were a big mistake and look how that turned out! Lol.


    Can’t be arsed to engage with the rest but this is in particular is some truly top-tier trolling. Literally everyone called out the Xbox One as a mistake, many people predicting it would be a misfire before it was even unveiled based on industry rumours and the latter-day trajectory of the 360. Such clairvoyance.

     

    Despite that I’m one of the very few people on here who still bought one at launch. Shame Dead Rising 3 was rubbish.

  8. How would making Gamepass less attractive/affordable in the future actually make Microsoft money?

     

    Netflix launched at £5.99 (HD, SDR), entirely third party content. It’s now £13.99 (4k HDR, with cheaper tiered pricing) and almost entirely Netflix content. They’re now footing the bill for all the programming and it’s still less than a single Bluray. Gamepass will continue to remain cheaper than buying games no matter what, it’s how the entire model works.

    Been chipping away at the campaign - got enough valor to unlock the Wasp - so mopping up the spartan crates etc is so much easier.

     

    I think I'm approaching the start of the section that appears to have caused so much criticism - I've done the 4 beacons.

     

    I absolutely love the open world and liberating UNSC troops/FOBs etc etc - I really do hope I enjoy the section ahead of me....


    If you’re going in expecting the worst, you’ll probably find it fine. That specific section isn’t too long, about an hour if you take it slow. You do get immediately funnelled into the next few levels but they’re much more entertaining.
