“... graphics cars may paperlaunch in March.”

This is 2021. Hardware isn’t being launched anymore. That’s a thing of the past.

Even more bad news, new 80$ flat tariff on GPUs going into effect.

After the almost doubling of prices post crypto craze, the bots, the scalpers, the new crypto crazy, the low and midrange are gonna eat the worst with that crazy tariff... THANK YOU MR.DRUMPF! You're a fucking lifesaver for "sticking it to the Chinese"!

And you just know this is gonna get reflected on Canadian prices too..

Considering each and every one of these GPUs was designed in the U S A...

The solution is obvious. More freebies.
Not for me. No Epic account, therefore no EGL and no freebies for me.

That's a peerless level of deductive reasoning.
Maybe. But with Epic there is no such thing as “free”. I’m certain of that.

Should have just focused on a low-bug PC version, then once it was stabilized, focused on next-gen, then after all that analyzed to see if it was worth it for last gen consoles.

Better yet, they should have focused on just one platform with the most potential: the PC. No console garbage. And release a polished product. Everything would have been perfect. Instead, they have a complete mess on all platforms now, an army of disgruntled players and two lawsuits. Congrats, way to go CDPR!

This is how it goes when heart and your soul aren't involved in the development of games. EA was the first to only release games that the masses wanted to make big money. Board staff at Cyberpunk 2077 made the same mistake. And in this case, it's also spiced with a lack of knowledge of how to make a game.

Guess this is how future gonna be...?

I think that’s not the main issue here. I believe they saw those big $-signs by announcing a simultaneous release on all platforms and totally underestimated the huge workload. Instead they could’ve just omitted the old gen consoles, set a first release date for PC and a second release date for the new consoles. But no, those $-signs were too tempting and now they’re paying the price.

I think so. Management plays a key role in the company’s success. And CDPR are pretty damn successful.

Countdown to refund started.

Keybinds are completely broken and some keys are hardlocked for no f*ing reason. For me as leftie the game is totally unplayable because the numeric right side of my keyboard is basically non-existant. up-down-left-right keys are locked for many functions. CDPR have not learned one thing from the royal f*up they commited on Witcher 3. Angry
With CP2077 they start this keyboard nonsense anew and it shall take another 1-2 years to "fix". Every little indie developer can code proper keybinds without idiotic restrictions, CDPR can't or don't want to. Well, I'm out this time.

The game looks nice (far from revolutionary) but the lousy performance is unjusftified and asks for many rounds of optimizations to come. If you don't own a last-gen Nvidia GPU with DLSS you're most likely screwed. I haven't experienced any crashes but my 1080 Ti is good enough for 1440p at low-medium settings, high-ultra at 1080p. CDPR flatout lied to us about the minimum/recommended specs.

If CD Projekt only offered it on GOG, I'd buy it there. But they didn't. Oh well.

As mentioned before: some gamers only buy from Steam. That considered, CDPR also sell CP 2077 there despite the ca. 30 percent cut.

If it hadn’t been for CDPR I would not have pre-ordered the game (one of exactly three I’ve ever pre-ordered) on GOG. Here CDPR is developer AND host at the same time. So they deserve each and every cent of my money. Over the years my steam library has grown considerably because it’s the best platform overall IMO. Updates appear first on Steam and I’ve never (meaning ZERO in 16 years of membership) had any issues with bandwidth, disconnects or on downtime on Steam.

And fixed. You can travel FTL but you can't get prices for commodities from stations unless you land on them.
Sorry mate, but it’s not 2015 anymore. Things have changed quite a bit since. While ED is still a massive grind (has always been since 1984 and will always be) you can purchase trade data in game. Besides there are tons of fan sites that give you this information in real-time.

A hunch tells me the graphics will disappoint many people. It will lack detail up close, look too metallic or plastic, lighting and effects... it will all look like what you were used to in games 5 to 8 years ago. Animations and good scenes will make up for much of it.

I dunno, it's what I think I'm seeing when I pay really hard attention in some of the gameplay vid segments I've been watching.

I won't care. I would even welcome it. And the spec requirements are on my side as well. But since most gamers think devs have been making logs until now and CDP just invented the wheel with Cyberpunk, I am expecting some outrage come December.
I'll have my popcorn ready by then.

Praying my 1080ti holds up. *puts away Cyberpunk 2077 shooting up kit and pulls out Cyberpunk 2077 prayer alter and 3 pairs of kneepads*

Of course it will. We should take those recommended by CDPR specs seriously. I believe CP77 will really get to shine visually when when texture/lighting/RT mods are out. Then you will benefit from a last gen GPU to a much larger degree.

Elite dangerous for free is a steal, just to check out the space flight/fight aspect of it. It's a game you kind of have to work at for it to be fun. I've tried it in VR and while everyone is going on about how crazy good it is, well the immersion is definitely better but it's still an empty shell, where you have to make your own game. Some find that fun, I find that Im just not that into it, which might have something to do with the fucking control UI being some of the worst (and unintuitive) I've seen. Still for 0$ bucks, everyone who even remotely enjoys space sims should check it out.

Just "checking out" ED will most likely end up in frustration because the learning curve is steeeeeeeeep. The UI is a catastrophy indeed, optimized for the console kiddies and their controllers. That said, I've played a lot recently in anticipation of the announced Odyssey upgrade. Admittedly, the grind is huge but I'll soon have my fully loaded and engineered Federal Corvette. For zero bucks this game is a total steal considering the Horizons upgrade is now included in the base game.

Okay. I have to admit that is a complaint I wouldn't have expected to see. If the core game play was constantly being changed I might understand it, but it isn't.

Yeah, extended support is exactly why I did end up getting this game (though I’ve yet to really play it, it’s on the backlog), but to each their own I guess.

Extended support sounds so nice. I’ve long lost my last trace of hope that this will ever be playable by leftie „cripple“ like me. Remapping of keys is restricted and/or broken in NMS and the devs don’t seem to give a damn.

How about the soundtrack instead? A digital comic is zero incentive for me personally. Jeez Louise, it wasn't that long ago when redbook CDs or digital soundtracks were par for the course and not just another way to monetize shit. Look at Outlaws, they could have easily charged for what is the greatest game soundtrack of all time but they didn't. Like Archie and Edith sang, Those were the days....

Looks like the soundtrack is included: https://www.gog.com/game/cyberpunk_2077

Anyways, I usually prefer Steam but in this particular case GOG it is for me.

I'd be with you but there is one little problem with Apple's headphones: the Apple exclusive lightning connector. So sure, if your headphones have a lightning connector you're fine. If not you'll have to purchase some kind of adapter which contradicts Apple's "oh look, we're soooo environmentally friendly!" pose. The lightning to headphone jack adapter is an incredibly useless piece of plastic for $9 (as seen on Apple's webshop).

A lot of reviews are saying this game has less depth than TL2, which sold for $20 if I recall correctly - something like 8 years ago.

Torchlight 2, mind you, which wasn't a game that evolved and was constantly supported directly over time like Diablo 3 (using this as an example of the level of support, not an example of a perfect ARPG), so, saying that this is just the launch version is a pretty weak argument.

Yeah, I like ARPG's, but this is a pretty hard no for me. If you like it, that's cool, but it does not sound like anything worth even half what it costs. This is bargain bin fodder at best.


Less depth than TL2? How’s that even possible? I’m playing Grim Dawn which has zero depth but it’s a beautifully crafted, eye candy hack n slash title. I wouldn’t be paying $40 for the TL cartoon style.

It’s all about presentation style. Apple managed to wrap the increased prices nicely into a (now smaller, lighter) box with less content but an „environmentally friendly“ sticker on it. We charge the same but omit both the charger AND the headphones. Brilliant!
