This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I encountered my first full-on, multi-platform glitch today in Cyberpunk 2077. It is a glitch so bad it crashes my computer. I tried going through the same side quest three times, and it crashes every single time.

I've heard it does pretty much the same result on consoles too. So it's really well known.

"I'm not gonna take it!" is the quest. And it triggers the moment you snap the photo. Once you snap the photo, it stays on the screen, and you are locked out of the game until it just totally crashes. Nothing you can do but restart,
That sounds about as bad as the Old Cowboy Hat fail in Fallout New Vegas. That one locked me out of playing for over a month until they found a workaround (it took much longer for it to get fixed).

Amusingly, Youtuber Kevin Kenson has succeeded in getting Cyberpunk to run on the Atari VCS:

https://youtu.be/nbmRk6DLkv0

The Atari VCS is a crowd-funded mini-PC styled after the old school 2600.

NOTE: It runs Cyberpunk. It doesn't run it well. On the other hand, the Ryzen3 2200U system-on-a-chip used in the Atari VCS is a low-end part that came out in 2018. There are much more powerful Ryzen APUs on the market.

The Ryzen 7 4000 series APUs are supposed to be fairly good for gaming, but you can only buy one as part of a commercially-produced system.

Update: Never mind. Just saw a review of someone gaming on a Ryzen 7 4700, and he was like "It plays Fortnite at full settings!" Yeah, and it plays everything else at 720P. Lame.

Personally, I prefer to wait until all the bug problems are sorted out before buying it.

My opinion is that nothing is going to fix 2077. They could patch every bug, but the core gameplay issues remain.

There are a number of excellent videos illustrating the frankly jarring disconnect between what was promised versus what was delivered. Open world and AI behavior; interacting with NPCs; combat and upgrades; vehicles and safehouses... etcetera.

One of my personal favorites is how in Red Dead Redemption 2, you can walk around and pick up items for later purchase right off the shelves, or browse an in-game catalogue. In CP2077, it's a last gen basic bitch open a window and buy shit interaction.

This game is turning out to be another Fable.

It's just flat out boring to me. It is able to stagger on because there's a dearth of cyberpunk games out there. I also found the "choose your own genitals" to be quite jarring at the start of the game. If you're going to do that, you don't have to have a floppy dick appear.

The whole character customizer is completely pointless, since:

(a) there's no third person view option
(b) your character doesn't show a reflection, even in surfaces where NPCs are showing a reflection
(c) some if not all of the cutscenes don't show your character either
(d) none of it matters anyways in-game.

Character customization is extremely important for lots of people - no matter if they can look at their character or not.
Appearance for many is as vital to make a character "their own" as the stat & skill customization is.
You can't just handwave that away.

Of course, you are still correct that you should at least be able to look at yourself in this game and that you can't is just one of the many shortcomings of it.
Working mirrors are really not that impossible to have in a game.
It's just a another camera looking through from the "other side" of the mirror, with its view projected onto the mirror surface. Not totally trivial, but you'd think a game of that scale should pull it off.

Does it hold a candle to what you could do in Conan Exiles (even if only via console command, iirc)?

Quite NSFW, though not in an erotic way (unless you are really, really weird): http://i.imgur.com/1neuvlq.jpg

At least in the beta Exiles has a dick slider. If memory serves.

The fewer penises I see in life the better, that's been my policy.

Had no idea you're a vampire in 2077. Pretty cool.
