Shitty game anyway. You're not missing anything. Honestly, it's like whoever made this has never even seen another MMO much less played one. Really just an awful game.
As for anyone on the fence about the game, understand that it's an action RPG MMO. Launch weeks are going to suck. There are some serious issues with how AGS is handling populations, naming, and server coverage, but I doubt that'll last too long without change.
The game, itself, isn't bad for those that are more into community-driven aspects and less standard MMO-faire. I generally enjoy crafting/gathering more than raiding/dungeoning, so the game greatly appeals to me in that aspect.

Truthfully, I don't recall ever hearing of Direct Storage until today. After taking a couple of minutes to read what the heck it is, my response is: Well, if it works as well as claimed it sounds awesome, but given it is being proposed and developed by Microsoft, I think I'll withhold any praise until independent reviews of the finished application are available.

Or Best Buy has had two recent things in last few months where they ship a chunk to every store and sell as MSRP on a certain day they announce. You do have to camp out overnight to get those, but if you want it enough...
Ive had the money to upgrade to a 3080 since it was launched, (900ish), but well, its not like you can find them, and when you do, they are a LOT more than just 900.
There's also a twitch channel that runs some stuff to check stock on pretty much all online retailers, so you can try jumping on that.VaranDragon wrote on Sep 1, 2021, 02:35:They would have never done that because they were trying to avoid spoilers. Probably they should have though. Or had some rounds of closed beta testing with outside people.
CP2077 is a great game. Unfortunately it was released unfinished. If it was released to early access first, all of these arguments about how "shitty" and "broken" it was would be moot.

Pre-ordering games just incentivizes companies to release shitty products.
Then people are outraged when the game is shitty.
Then they line up to pre-order the next shitty game.
In fairness CDPR had a pretty good reputation on the whole. Give the scope of their games one could rightfully assume there were going to be a good deal of bugs and issues at launch. Not all the time in the world in QA would ever have them perfect to go out of the gate. They dropped the ball big time with this one however.

I have a few friends anxious to play, but I am seriously concerned about the longevity of the combat depth.. I played the beta, and the trees/combat were way too simplistic long term. Two weapons equipped. Two combos (if you can call it that) for most weapons - basically 3 lights or 3 heavies, and also equip 3 (IIRC) abilities from their trees. But it was super repetitive, and the trees aren't very big.

Don't need it...;) This program is all you need--been using it for years:
This software allows you to emulate the A500 (several differing models of it), the A1000, A1200, the A2000, A2500, A3000, and the A4000--does a bang-up job, right on your PC.
