Arguing about whether it takes some miliseconds extra to launch a game one way versus another, or nitpicking about a few MB of RAM and CPU usage that doesn't even cause your processor to come out of idle, seems kinda fruitless.

How many Blues users actually launch the store before launching the game they already own? As opposed to having a shortcut for the game directly?
You'd think that most, if not all here would just launch games directly to forgo the marketing that happens anytime you open a store to play a game (even if you disable the popups, you're far more likely to browse other games or checkout current deals when interacting with a store, rather than a game shortcut).
Slick - launches games directly via windows shortcuts and never looks/cares what store its on other than when purchasing. You?

On World News tonight a couple weeks ago they had a guy on there who said at best the vaccine would only be good for a year before the virus would change to the point where it would no longer be affected. Point I'm making is, this vaccine won't change much. If people want "Normal" they will have to keep getting it once a year, every year, like what we now do with the regular flu vaccine...and even then, it will never get rid of it. Ever. It's never going away. People learn to live with it or huddle in fear the rest of their lives. That's the choice.
The new mutation is covered by the current vaccine. Given that the vaccine is based on year-old virus, that's a good sign."The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine expresses the full-length Spike protein of the SARS-COV-2 virus, allowing for the generation of neutralizing antibody responses to multiple domains of the protein," the statement reads in part."The full-length Spike protein is 1,273 amino acids long, so while recent variants involve multiple mutations, for instance up to 8 amino acid changes in the spike protein of the B1.1.7 strain, these represent less than a 1% difference from the spike protein encoded by Moderna’s vaccine."
Likewise Pfizer said in a statement, “To date, we have found consistent coverage of all the strains tested,” and it’s now testing against the new strain in the UK.

Well as the song goes....You load 16 tons and what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt..... At the snails pace the vaccine is coming I don't think there's anything to really rah rah about yet. Wtf aren't governments rolling out their militaries to create vaccine centers to administer it? It's not like they're doing anything else in most places. You don't need doctors or nurses to jab a needle in someone's arm. Just one or two of them on hand to oversee everything in case of an anaphylactic reaction. Here they're talking about only having about 75% of the population vaccinated by the end of July or August which with our government's track record - both provincially and federally - with this sort of thing we'll be lucky if it's actually 25% of the population. For a government that's quick to shut everything down they don't seem all that keen on rolling this out ASAP. I'm betting once Biden takes over he'll ramp up the fuck out of it and make that happen. Hopefully that'll give the rest of the gov'ts out there the kick in the ass they so sorely need.

Exactly. While it is not a perfect game, it is fun. I currently not really fond of the bullet sponge gameplay. I also wanted cyberware to be more involved. IE...You get to chose one set of arms and that is it. Later.
Headshots or bust, if I'm head shoting it's almost always a one shot kill.

Most of the people who experienced the file size limit corruption are those who've hacked the game and given themselves an absurd number of items and|or quantities of items. All that stuff has to store somewhere, so CDPR decided it should go into the save file. Sure, one could argue, CDPR should've known people would cheat, but it's not their responsibility to fix self-inflicted pain. That said, they did correct the issue so people can go back to older saves and hack to their heart's delight.

The roughness comes in with blah gameplay and bugs. Performance is tolerable considering the top tier graphics.
Top tier graphics?! In medium/low settings the game looks fucking terrible and yet the performance is abysmal. It's like the game is calculating every NPCs behavior in the entire city and generating them as well even though you're inside in some ugly appartment. One of those first missions in the appartment complex? Or the night club? It all looked really mediocre to me yet my 1070Ti was on it's knees getting thoroughly abused by this game.
No excuses. Terrible, horrendous optimization and I'll eat my left testicle if one of our friendly neighborhood GPU manufacturers hasn't anything to do with this, just to up the sales of a product they can't provide.

It's fucking fantastic so far, I don't know why there are so many people out there that just chew away at the sails of awesome shit. Depressing mfers.
It runs great too, from the specs they released I should only be playing this on Raytracing Light, but the game put all my settings to Ultra by default and still running at 60fps.
About 4 hours in the Cyberpunk logo/intro is finally ran and I did run into a bug right before that, couldn't get something off someone, reloaded and that person
reloaded/floated outside the building where I couldn't get to, so had to reload the whole mission. A little aggravating but definitely not a dealbreaker besides that haven't seen too many glitches so far. Looks, sounds and plays awesome - combat is better than expected.
