Cyberpunk 2077 - Please use spoiler tags


Recommended Posts

I don't know if I've encountered a bug or not. I had an NPC following me around for the last hour. I couldn't interact with him in any way, and he did stuff that I wouldn't want him to be doing when I just wanted to get to Afterlife and he would rather get involved in a street fight. I've saved the game to head to bed, so I'm both hoping he's gone when I load it up tomorrow, as well as kinda wanting him to just hang around for the rest of the game.

 

Wandering around the world, finding the huge amount of cops who don't like you being too close, and criminals who will decide to kill you if they get to see you for even a second, is a little frustrating. I'm still relatively low-levelled and new to this, stop trying to force content on me! I'm still getting some tutorial popups from time to time. And definitely have gotten some notifications in the middle of action that I'm not sure if I was meant to do anything about.

 

It's clearly a massively deep and complex game, and they need to introduce a lot of stuff, but I'm finding the pacing early on to be a bit ... unsure. Either I totally don't know how to play, or have managed to find some things I'm quite underlevelled for, because when a quest is listed as Moderate then I expect to be able to manage it at whatever my current level is. With any luck my NPC slave can help me out with things!

Not to be a massive apologist but I kind of like how the game currently feels like it's getting the most impressive stuff possible out of the last gen consoles, and simultaneously like it's careering toward the finish line with bits falling off like a Wacky Races car. Reminds me of Origin's DOS games.

 

I've had one full crash so far, and a few bits of weirdness requiring a quicksave reload. There is sometimes a weird lag on messages or objectives being updated which can make it desync and be unable to progress.

 

It's mental how good some of the story stuff is in terms of acting, lighting and animation. The scene where you meet the ripperdoc stood out for me. An NPC in a scene like that who isn't hamming it up and gesturing like Lee Evans, whose body language and delivery is just... naturalistic. I'm pretty sure it's in there as a direct point of comparison with the similar scenes in Deus Ex MD to show how far tech has come.

Yeah there's another scene where after a chat and going over the plan a character pats her leg and gets up in that way people do when they're getting on with something. Such a tiny detail that really stuck out to me as something you never see in video game acting. 

 

 

I'm finding it all a bit overwhelming and confusing, takes a while to get your bearings and stuff. So no wonder some reviewers weren't keen, if you had to mainline this in a few days you'd really have a bad, confusing time.

It very much reminds me of Witcher 3 in that it gets you into open world and goes “HA!” And flings the entire map of side quests and everything you can imagine in your lap. Like, the opposite of drip-feed R* games. I like it

My biggest issue with the game so far is:

 

 

Spoiler

The branding is so on point, that when approaching nigh on every store they are all just locked doors. It is totally unreasonable of me to assume every building explorable, but with outer details so spectacular it is jarring my brain...

I have one following me around too. I’m unsure whether I missed some dialogue, but they were suddenly just there.

getting into my car, etc.

 

don’t think there was a missing wedding scene.

From the first couple of hours with it, it feels like the game Deus Ex would have been if it was made today.

Oh you absolute shit. I'm trying to hold off on this until the next gen version is released and you've just made the wait a million times harder.

Closest game to feeling like your actually immersed in the head wreck of ShibUya crossing in Tokyo. 

Getting a steady 60-70 FPS on ultra on the rtx 3090 maxed out. Looks absolutely insane.

I think this is the most believable game world I’ve ever played in. Incredible stuff

CDPR have nailed the gateway from generation to generation it seems. It's like let's show what has been decent from the last eight years followed by glimpses of the future. 

 

Bravo CDPR, bravo!

Yeah, they laughed at me for buying one of those cards but who's laughing now?

 

Oh, they still are :( 

 

Ah, fuck 'em!

Anyone on Xbox Series X having a worrying noise when in the map screen?  Anytime i use the map and move around, a high pitched whine will start and stop for a few seconds and repeat every 15-20 seconds.  Doesn't happen in-game - muted the TV etc.. just on the map screen.

Sorry not sorry 

I mean, I’m very early on, but it just feels like my memories of what Deus Ex felt like on my first run through...but even stuff down to the character models, and as a Corpo, my initial environments, the things I’m seeing and being asked to do, so very reminiscent. I hope it continues in this vein

THAT'S what that is?!! I went for a coffee and thought it was coming from my headphones. Sure it was from the Xbox itself??

playing on the Series X and runs smoothly if looking a bit soft. Spoiled my experience really by watching a vid beforehand, of someone trying to get it running at 8k on a 3090. 

They couldn’t?

So how are people finding the combat in this? I'm actually enjoying it (bar the aforementioned weightless melee). I received a katana as a quest reward yesterday and despite consigning it to - never going to touch - I had to use it as I ran out of ammo and it was amazing! Feels really, really brutal but leaves you exposed as anything. Finding pistols to be my favourite gun so far too. Unlike most games they hit like absolute trucks and it's fairly easy to headshot for days, certainly easier than trying to tame the recoil on an SMG or assault rifle.

Only problem I'm finding is the character almost refuses to crouch sometimes but that is probably me being cackhanded rather than the game being at fault.

Are you using any specific settings outside of Ultra. I was watching my brother play it last night with his 3090 and his was dropping frames in the city down to 55.

They recommend stadia unless you have a PC with a graphics card made in the last six years, a PS5, or a Series S/X.

 

Hardly a glowing recommendation :lol:

To be honest, I've only really played an hour or so. I just left Nvidia experience to set the thing for now and was happy to see how it run. Everything seems to be on HIgh/Ultra though - DLSS is set on Balanced. I did turn down Ray tracing to high - Nvidia thought it should be on Psycho, but I couldn't see much difference at all.

Runs well on the Series X but seems to fluctuate between looking really dated and next gen. 

 

I’m not sure what to make of the game. Couldn’t stop playing but again it feels both old fashioned and state of the art. I’ve saw very little in the way of bugs so far.

Ok, yeah I was just surprised as my 3080 drops frames when running 4k raytracing on in the city but there again I have a i7 6700 cpu so maybe thats why. I checked  my brothers last night and it wasn't that much different to mine. It was fine outside the city, but once he got there, it wasn't great.
