This is a pretty amazing release. Looking forward to playing it once I work my way through a few other titles.

Today : "Steam sales suck! Horrible discounts on everything. No good selection! I wish it were the good old days of yesteryear!"
Yesteryear : "Steam sales suck! Horrible discounts on everything. They make flash sales so that you can't catch them! Wish we had some consumer protections in the form of refunds!"

I guess life really is about tradeoffs.
And seeing half my wishlist at 50+% off isn't such a bad sale.

Comments from CD PROJEKT do *not* make them look good....

They should be falling on their sword rather than "....but you can still go buy it at brick and mortar! (just understand *they* are responsible for the refund, not *us*.)"

Holy shit. Sony stepped into the ring and delivered a Mike Tyson uppercut :

Refunds across the board and the game has been delisted.

People will ***** me out for saying this, but this is just poor people being poor and not using common sense.

I blindly followed what the PR depts told me and got burned and now am upset at the PR folks rather then look in the mirror at my own gullibility.

Wow. I'm not sure how blaming the victim for what was blatant misinformation by the manufacturer is logical... The consumer has some culpability for impulse control.....but the actual BLAME should be solely levelled on the Dev/Publisher that assured their customer base that the product would work as advertised. Letting them off with 'you should have waited' excused the behavior and encourages it for future releases.

Alamar is right. Consoles are static constants and the performance should have easily met a minimum level. There is none of the PC excuses that come with so many variables.

Aside : I preordered Cyberpunk 2077. My eyes were wide open. I expected bugs because Witcher 3 was a mushy mess when it released. I was OK with the risk/reward of my choice. My experiences have shown many gameplay/aesthetic bugs as well as two quest breaking bugs. The inability to remap keys without mods is utterly asinine.

Speaking of Whedon, man this is a bummer.
Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the film, tweeted that the director’s behavior on set was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, .......
Fisher also voiced his support for Whedon’s ex-wife Kai Cole, who previously accused the director of toxic behavior. Cole’s 2017 article for The Wrap detailed Whedon’s cruel tactics and constant infidelity during their eleven-year marriage.
There is also buzz that Fisher was a bit of a diva when Whedon started shifting the movie spotlight away from his character....and that's what generated so much of the animosity. I don't know which is which.... But this kind of whining isn't coming from the myirad of other **established actors** that he's worked with in the past. That said...there are plenty of rumors about his philandering and quite a few nods that at least one of those was underage.....so a saint he ain't.

This is the basis of the safe harbor protections internet websites enjoy. By not publishing, endorsing, or restricting speech beyond what is illegal in their jurisdiction, they are granted immunity for what others post on their platforms. Once they start to decide what speech is allowable, they have become publishers, by choosing which ideas they publish. It's not hard.
By your logic, Blues is now a liable publisher for DELETING posts when the peanut gallery gets a little out of line. That's censoring what you believe to be 'free speech'. (no shade, I've had posts deleted before....)

The current theory is that the guy's original video was essentially de-indexed due to the the ~30 seconds he spent complaining about (but still displaying for the clicks) a dildo/vibrator weapon in the game. Other channels have been demonitized for things like this before. >shrug< I don't know if it's what you would call legitimate censorship, or just standard business practices?

I wonder if something similar was done for anyone's videos flaunting the massive purple dildo that was in Saint's Row III?

Yeah....I think rose colored glasses and fanboism have really done a disservice to this launch. Witcher 3 was buggy and a janky mess until they put a massive patch out to address it. I expect nothing less of Cyberpunk.....but I also expect that they'll fix it.

ROFL. I can understand how you would confuse pointing out game breaking balance issues that have significant negative repercussions on the playerbase as whining. That's probably the best you can do since there isn't an intelligent rebuttal to be had.

Which ones are those?
They are some jacked up weapons that were in game only during the early phase that have some bugs that can be exploited for obscene damage. Like....putting down the Scorchbeast Queen (first raid boss) in seconds. And since you have to do 1k+ damage to her to get on the loot table....that means most normal players don't have time to do enough damage to get the loot. Even worse, sometimes the guy that set off the nuke to summon her doesn't have time to even get to the event before it's largely over.

So it's a good first step but they still have a long way to go. Wayyyyyy too much downtime, and the below average combat mechanics and repetitive MMO style missions don't even begin to offset this.
Definitely a long way to go. They need to fix magic weapons and tune them into a reasonable damage level.....hell, I think its reasonable to just delete them all from the game outright. They've been abused for far too long and ruined the game for normal players.

Then fix the Bloodied builds and make them reasonable. The game itself is totally broken until they rebalance those major issues. Those are simple balance passes....then they can move on to content. But...they won't because too many of the whiny playerbase abuse those mechanics and would pitch fits.

Don’t Just Survive, Thrive!: We’ve removed all negative effects from Hunger and Thirst. Instead, you’ll receive buffs that increase based on how well fed and hydrated you are.
Mixed feelings.....but this is overall probably a good thing. It could be challenging at lower levels to handle food without perks or when you had some kind of disease.

The SC fans are all kinds of worked up over this show and the new releases (Nomad and Mercury Star Runner). It's amazing the number of ships and the additional few million in funding they will pull out of this event. I already have a ship and might toy with buying another just for the fun of it. It will never be the game that was promised....probably not even half of that.... But it's been worth the few bucks I've spent just as a gaming experience. More entertainment than I've gotten out of a few AAA titles that I've bought over the years, so I'm not sore about it. As long as someone is dabbling just for fun it's not a big deal....but the people that are emotionally (and financially) invested are just doing themselves a disservice.

And just because I love the monologues and can't resist :

I've had ED for a while, but never tried it in VR because I didn't have a game compliant HOTAS. I'd totally forgotten about that. Now that I have an x52, I'm going to have to revisit it!

Fantasy Grounds comes with the core rules for D&D and Pathfinder. For the automation, reference, and rulesets, yes you have to buy the individual books for the advanced systems and scripting you want to include. You don't need the Bestiary or 'starter setting'. You can create creatures, adventures, maps, etc manually to your hearts content... There are plenty of free adventures and resources at your fingertips with a few searches.

These are the same costs that you would have were you to run an actual real-world tabletop setting or under any other licensed VTT.

If tools like Fantasy Grounds did this it would be much more worth the buy in cost.
FYI, I've hosted Fantasy Grounds games for years and none of my players had to buy anything. If the GM has an Ultimate license, all players can connect with the free license client. The rulesets and scripting in FG is pretty amazing once you figure out how things work....I haven't seen anything comparable.

That said, while it is one of the best products out there.....it can get expensive.
