Here's something really crazy. The only truly honest review of the current state of the game is Worth A Buy, and his video is now being censored. It will not come up on a Google search. You have to go directly to his channel on youtube to watch it. He recently released a follow-up video about the situation. The Internet is really turning into a big pile of fake news. It favors fake over facts. Ugh

Here's Mack's (pc) review (which is actually quite funny, particularly the rating segment at the end. He does it that way to try not to butt-hurt the fanboys lol):
WaB Cyberpunk 2077 Review

Here's his follow-up vid:
WaB Cyberpunk 2077 Follow-up

How is this the only "honest" review?
Plenty of reviews gave it not great scores, or did you not see all the outrage over it getting below 10s?

Alyx for vr. Cyberpunk is 'ok' but nowhere near finished. AI is shockingly bad.

I saw a great clip on reddit titled "waiting for the car I want to jack." Guy stood at an intersection, and a car pulled up. He turned to look 180 degrees, went back, and a different car pulled up. Each time the car left his vision, it disappeared. When he looked back at the intersection, a new one drove up to take its place.

I will always defend esdf as better than wasd

When I first started using keys and mouse, I used arrow keys. Lol. Over the years I've progressively moved to the left of the keyboard, and now Im in WASD territory. Something about the proximity and edge of the control, shift, alt, tab keys suits me. I'm not saying it's better, it's just better for me

Same with me, on the arrow keys. It was Duke3D that had me do it. My first setup was left mouse button walked forward, middle walked backwards. Arrow keys were jump, duck, and strafe. I shifted to a more traditional method with the arrow keys doing what people use wasd for, but had to push the keyboard all the way to my left to comfortably use it. I eventually realized that was dumb, and looked for keys on the left side of the keyboard that I could use with my lefthand without moving the keyboard, but were similar to the arrow keys. ESDF seemed to be most aligned to the arrow - the E is more directly over the D than the W over the S. To my eye. On that keyboard. But also:

You'll have equal access to control/shift/alt/tab when using ESDF while having greater access to the middle of the keyboard. ESDF is superior to WASD in every way, that's why you're seeing a greater number of people changing the defaults.

For me, it isn't just the access to the middle, it's having W and Q. Most games need multiple buttons, and for me R is always reload, W is activate or whatever, but I still have Q. It's easier for me to reach out left and hit Q than reach right and hit whatever is there. My hand is already angled diagonally so that my ring finger is basically an easy sweep to both Q and W, but my index finger only really gets to G well.

Actually, that would explain some things....

I have always suspected that Trump is from the mirror Star Trek universe. He was probably a minor flunky in the Terran Empire. Maybe he managed housing for slave laborers. When he came to our universe, he couldn't understand, for the life of him, why tenants should expect to have any rights, or expect not to be taken advantage of.

When elected president, he attempted to copy the Terran Emperor's ruling style, with the expected results.

Yeah, and perhaps Biden was their leader. That makes more sense, don't you think? Maybe that is why they scrambled his brains.

Why would Biden being the alien's leader have anything to do with scrambling Trump's brains? Biden isn't that vindictive, so we'd need another explanation for why Trump is the way he is.

I just don't get why some people here will rush to defend literally anything a developer does in a game (that doesn't impact them.)

Is it on EGS? It's evil. Does it require an online connection? It's evil. Is there any downloadable content? It's evil horse armor.

Can it make someone sick, intentionally, without warning, in an unskippable part of the game that players are asked to complete? Well, that's just their creative right and how dare we complain!

It was a mistake. CDPR admits it is a mistake. It will be fixed with absolutely no real impact to non-epilepctic players. No one is saying that they're evil, people are saying they made a mistake. We all make mistakes.

It's just mind-blowing to see people outraged over someone with epilepsy asking a dev to please fix something designed to give them epilepsy.

For our next trick, we will develop a hair dryer that does not actually electrocute you if you ignore the "do not submerge in water while plugged in" warning and do it anyway.

Sure, this analogy would work if Cyberpunk had a warning (it did not), or if submerging the hair dryer in water was a necessary part of completing its usage (as the intentional seizure sequence is in Cyberpunk.)

You're outraged by this outrage because you're oversimplifying it so that it sounds stupid. The reality is that CDPR created a mission designed to create seizures, and put it in there without warning the people it would cause seizures in ahead of time, and didn't give any way to complete the mission without seizures.
Certainly a different situation than the one you imagined so that you could feel superior.

Some here are so quick to get furious over something that may impact them and so quick to try to strawman anything that can't. "Wait, this only impacts people physically different than me? Then clearly it's wrong to want to change. But if it impacted me, well, there'd be hell to pay!"

I am a proud bleeding heart liberal. BLM, feminism, democratic socialism, fighting against racism & bigotry I am fine with. But this here.. I draw the fucking line.

The cyberpunk genre aesthetic is BASED on neon strobes and glitzy, flashing lights. Removing that aesthetic would be detrimental to the atmosphere. For those jumping on this bandwagon so you think all these scenes in the bladerunner movies should be removed as well? Exactly.

Listen, some people can't eat dairy. And that's ok they find other things to eat. So because they can't eat ice cream it should be banned from being sold and I have to go without? Not everyone can do everything. Life isn't fair sometimes, some things I can't, unable to do and you don't see be begrudging those that can and telling them they shouldn't because I cant. I simply put my big boy pants on and get over it.

I mean, things that contain Dairy legally need to tell you, so that you don't accidentally eat it and die.
Epilepsy is the same. Just warn people so they don't sit down to play a game and end up dying.

There wasn't that much shooting in the movie though. A mystery adventure game would have been cool.

Think how much more exciting it would have been with shooting, though. And explosions! And booooooobs!

Well Folks, that's what the consumer wants. Consumers hate physical copies of books and media, can't stand replacing battery's in their phones, and now they demand that chargers be sold separately too.

It doesn't bother me with Samsung. They use standard USB-C cables. I have a billion of those. And a billion fast chargers that fit any USB cable. Like with the tail end of Micro-USB, eventually we'll start throwing them out because we already have one in every outlet and 3 in any suitcase.

Skimming the reviews, it sounds as if the game is lacking the heart of TW3, and the world is pretty but not necessarily a place you want to spend time outside of missions.

TW3 was really a generational game. This not being as good for many people isn't a huge surprise. It still sounds like something I'll enjoy, whenever I actually get around to it.

So did any Blind people actually complain to Twitch or was it a bunch of white people trying to feel like they're doing something? This is useless corporate signaling on the level of the Aunt Jemima change. Costs them nothing, benefits no one. If Twitch really cared they'd implement accessibility functions into their site, but that'd require real work.

Wait, you think changing Aunt Jemima costs nothing?

Meanwhile, the article has several different people that had requested this, and as you said, this particular request does cost virtually nothing, so why in the world would they not do it?

But seriously, you think rebranding an entire category leader costs nothing?

The article about Tony Hsieh is a good read.
I wonder if he surrounded himself with Yes Men and if anyone dared tell him he might be doing something wrong they'd be summarily dismissed.
In an interview on NPR, Zappos wasn't even his own idea and he didn't think it would work until he was informed of the two billion dollar mail order shoe market.
Buying shoes over the Internet is a bit counter-intuitive. Buying shoes without trying them on? Crazy! Although I never used the Zappos site, I've been doing it since around the time they started. What I did was go find some "sneakers" I liked by trying them on, bought one pair. Then went home and looked around for the same brand and size on sale. Once I found some, I bought several. Saved a fair amount doing that...

I'd like to see a lot more businesses adopt Zappos friendly customer service practices...

Zappos secret was making returns so easy that people would order 2-5 different pairs to see which they preferred, but knowing that returns are always a hassle so lots of people would decide it was easier to keep the second pair of red pumps rather than box them up and send them back.
