He is not wrong. That expose was a equal mix of valid criticism and ignorant hate mongering. Especially the "fake" demo allegations. EVERY game at EVERY trade show a year+ out is going to be a tech demo/slice polished up for the fans. If it's 'fake' then fine, where was the outrage for EVERY other demo given a year+ out from release? Exactly.

Anybody try this yet?
Also, "Get a $300 deal for $20!!" LOL
Yeah... a 'Lifetime' deal on something new like that doesn't seem sus at all. Nope. Not at all.
This sounds about as 'advanced' as Monster cables were.

Picked up Carrion for $5 on Epic. Great game. The gameplay and art are fantastic. There's really nothing else like it. I'm not really a fan of pixelart, but it's used to great effect here. If you're looking for something fun and different, give it a shot. It starts out pretty easy, but gets harder with puzzles and armed soldiers later on.
It got so bad he said he was drinking a half-gallon of vodka and shooting up with one gram of meth and 2 grams of heroin in a single day.

You can tell you didn't RTFA because it's about someone stumbling upon a clearly unfinished in-game location. They probably left it there because it's hard to get to without a stairway or whatever they would have placed, but it has functioning doors (as opposed to the fake 'locked' ones you see everywhere) leading to a spacious interior that is almost completely lacking in geometry and texture detail. Whether or not it was supposed to be part of a functioning system, it is certainly one of the most egregious examples of how rushed development was that I've seen thus far.
That war Brigitte refers to happened 30 years before the game takes place and destroyed much of the subway system. The NCART corp is still around and it wouldn't be a stretch for the above-ground monorail to be finished. I don't know why they'd go to the trouble of starting and then giving up on building at least one full-size station if that wasn't part of their plan for the game.

Half these 'reporters' just looked up Cyberpunk on wikipedia, saw the words 'Neuromancer' and 'Blade Runner' and just made sure to sprinkle those words into their review to make it look like they have half a fucking clue what the genre is all about.
One review I read spent at least a paragraph wondering why the game defaults to him/her with male/female characters, or why you can't play a gender neutral character. in this same review, they talked about how the game is full of old cyberpunk tropes that bring it down. Three paragraphs later and she's writing about how these same classic tropes are what makes the game feel so much a part of its genre. I kid you not.

...Is it wrong that I'd kinda want Sony to do the same to scalpers? Just soft-brick the system so they have to return it?
Some guy tried to scalp dozens of PS5s. He posted to Twitter "Fuck your feelings, Digital: 900$, Disc : 1100$ with a pic of the PS5 pile."
Same day, he got doxxed, less than 24 hours later, all the PS5s got robbed.
NOT CONDONING DOXXING AND THEFT HERE. But damn... "Fuck your feelings." He had it coming.
