  1. I don't know anything at all about cyberpunk stuff but I did like the atmosphere of Omega in Mass Effect 2. Which supposedly was based on Blade Runner. All they had to do was make a city on that order. From the screenies Night City just looks like a relatively clean city in California populated by freaks. ... Which is pretty close to reality so I'm not sure that even can work as scifi. (California was minus one freak when I left! Plenty left though! )
  2. Apparently buying a coffee "costs lives". According to some ad from the UK at least. I hate humans. I'm getting a coffee.
  3. Alright, so according to Google denying internet (or rather Google services) is a "violation of basic human rights". If that's the case, apparently Google is also literally committing crimes against humanity by banning so many people from their platforms.
  4. Hey now I hear banks are in on it! No credit cards or bank for you wrong-thinker! Off to the re-education camps! Kind of funny, where I am everyone hates banks. To the point they don't keep their money in them at all. Starting to understand why!
  5. I'm not sure that's it. It doesn't take a lot of effort (as we all know via mods or those of us that make them) to make even a slightly attractive NPC. It appears much of the western development scene has become stuck with this idea that humans have to look hideous. Note how the eastern devs don't have this problem at all. And you can go back in time to previous western games where the NPCs somehow look so much better than today. (Excepting all Bethsoft titles of course. They NEVER looked good! ) I have asked around about this but I work in casual games so we're not really "in the know"
  6. OK, this one: The other thing I'm noticing perusing the various characters..... guys. Are. Ugly. At least in CP '77. Maybe CDPR just fell to the "every human must be ugly" phenomena that hit western devs around...... when? Was it 2017? We can't count Bethsoft because they've always made hideous people. But OTHER studios were doing OK. Until... now.
  7. Oh right, the one that was in the dress and got dead or something? Yes, I guess back then they could still model an attractive human. Something happened between then... and 2020.
  8. What gets me is the attractiveness quotient. (I just made that up but it should certainly be a thing.) The only one remotely decent is Judy and she's half as attractive as in the promotional stuff. (For no reason!) Otherwise girls get nothing but ugly. It's even worse for guy characters since they can't romance Judy. Now compare that to........ actually I'll just do it! Witcher 3 -- circa 2015 The last two of which were minor NPCs. CP '77 - Circa 2020 It's like they released a half-assed version of Judy and then thought... "Eh, screw it." What
  9. So... did a little cheating as I was curious. Looked up the romance options on the CP '77 wiki. ... Did I say years before I got the game? I may never get this game at all! Is this really the same company that did Witcher 3!?
  10. Well. Seems the purge is already starting. Social media is all in unison going: You know, might be a good idea to get this place mirrored on an onion server or something similar. When they run out of political targets, places like this might be next. I've heard of a couple modding sites that have done this supposedly. (Need to check up on those to be sure.) Going to be interesting to see how this affects game censorship. At this rate it's going to be censored like hell just for the "land of the free". And Germany. They censor everything in Germany. OK, Austral
  11. Take the following as somebody coming at this from the outside. (I can't really claim being American anymore. Been gone too long.) Thanks to Alkpaz I've been listening to a bunch of I guess "right" youtube people. And I'm baffled. If they'd channel half their rage over the Capitol nonsense into getting stuff done, there wouldn't be any SJW's left! Why are they so upset over the recent protest? Compared to a few months ago it was a boy scout outing!! And then there's the whinging about "changing the narrative". Come on! The only thing you'll get from a discussion with an SJW/nutjob is a
  12. Whoa. Yeah wine isn't going to help here. He needs some serious medication. NOW. I think there will be a tech censorship purge coming next. Or I should say another one. We've had quite a few already. Might even hit "adult" sites. Lots of mobs trying to ruin lives for the ever changing "wrong think". As for inflation, yeah. If they keep sending out checks and printing money, that can't have a good cumulative effect. It's like they want to create the dystopian hell hole Earth depicted in the Expanse.
  13. I was referring to a "probably not leak" that was put up on... I think it was reddit. Anyway, here's a link with the rumor. (Apologies for the sites, gaming sites are just terrible.) And later it was supposedly debunked. I'm just curious why they'd want to debunk the idea that it was making a comeback. Isn't that a positive thing? Or maybe they thought they've lied enough, stop now?
  14. OK this turned into a book. Sorry about that. A consequence of having no Americani around. Just skip to the end. Easier! And I guess this is still cringe. I mean... LOOK at this giant wall of a post! First, that guy needs to have some wine and relax. Just a few months back cities all over the US were burning and people getting killed all the time. This one was just a "largely peaceful" demonstration. My primary interest here are his vague historical comments. I just got done reading a ton of books on the revolution. (Ran out of romance novels.) And
  15. OK so... anybody here actually played NMS? Spaceflight is stupid. Asteroids appear out of nowhere. LOD is a mess. And eventually all the planets AND creatures start looking the same even if there are effectively an infinite amount. (Last time I played was a few updates after the organic ships. I haven't had a desire to return for awhile now.) I did like base building (when you switch to the fly mode). I found I preferred FO4's moronic (but attractive thanks to mods) settlers to weirdo ugly aliens... that are also moronic. Back to CP '77. Apparently.... that rumor about them
