You really have to look at the Cyberpunk Graph on the Steam reviews page to get an idea of what’s happening.
That $29.95 price tag doesn’t hurt either as the graph shows.
It might also be an effect from Steam Awards encouraging users to review games as part of the award badge. It's an interesting headline and the Reddit commentary was funny as lots of users were upset that it's receiving a positive review bomb of sorts, against the "Game Is Bad" bandwagon. Looking at the graph at steamdb (https://steamdb.info/app/1091500/graphs/) there's only been a smallish spike in players in the last handful of days, so most of these reviews could really be from older owners.
This whole minority outrage at a game's review score going up from a surge of reviews despite the prevailing wisdom that the game "is bad" is an interesting prospect. Those whiniest about the game "know it's bad" and yet the Steam review score could sway people into playing it and enjoying it despite their belief that the game doesn't deserve play.

play this game if you have not. fantastic game, very underrated. Probably better than the other UBI duplicate crap.
There's nothing underrated about this game, it's well-reviewed and well-known.

I heard It Takes Two is pretty good. I will pick that up at some point to play with my wife.
I bought it for my wife and we played through it over several evenings. It's great, and there's lots of variety. At no point were we bored or tired of it. After the four hour mark I was expecting the game to end any minute now, but it just keeps going, and it stays fresh and fun throughout the entire campaign. Totally worth it!

There are two types of blockchain games: one that's a cryptocurrency market disguised as a video game, and the other that lets you own the assets you've acquired (items, characters, XP, whatever) that you can then sell on the cryptocurrency market disguised as a video game. There's only one reason for a blockchain game to exist: transactions. It doesn't benefit gamers because you can bet Ubisoft will figure out a way to own the blockchain item with a secondary digital ID that makes them the ultimate owner to do whatever they want with the digital widget (think "The Lord of the Blockchain Rings"). None of this speaks about the potential criminality of blockchain gaming which is why Valve rightfully banned it. Both Epic and Ubisoft are stupid. Their lawyers should sit them down and discuss why getting into blockchain video games is a terrible idea. Actually, disregard Epic. I'm all for them getting into blockchain video games and losing.
Nail on the head right there! You'll "own" the NFT for the item across their network of games that support item transfer, but you'll never have ultimate ownership of the item: you waived that right in the EULA you agreed to when you first installed the title.

I wish we had more insight into the cause of so many delays. Are there fundamental core engine design problems they never surmounted and are continuing to work with? Is providing updates to the 9 supported platforms contributing to the slow upgrade process? Are they struggling to decide which keyboard key to assign to the Walk function? I wish they would just be candid but I suppose we will have to wait several years for that story to be released.

I picked up Agent A for $2.30 CDN. Played the demo of this during the Steam Fest a couple weeks ago and it was really charming. Also finally bought Unavowed, I really like these Wadjet Eye point n click adventure games.

A decent game that should have had another 2 years to cook and add content before it was released.

An easy "content" addition that would get me to at least consider the game would be a proper single player experience. I'm not even asking for offline single player. I'm fine sailing around online in the same world as everyone else but there should have been a way to flag yourself as "single player" or "PvE only" or something. As a huge fan of Sid Meier's Pirates!, I generally quite like this type of game but no single player is killing it for me. I have no interest to play as a gank target and as easy prey for the bored crews whose sole purpose has become to prey on single players.
Players are pretty easy to avoid, and there are ways of signalling you do not want a fight (white mast flag, cannons pointed at sky). The small ship is the fastest moving when sailing into the wind, so you can outpace the other two large ships. Sometimes it just comes down to a fight when another player simply won't leave you alone, but if you adopt a "meh who cares, i'll find more treasure" you can scuttle your ship and start over away from them. This happens to us once in a while, but most of the time other players ignore us, or other players actually want to ally and work together.

General Ralph Landry : [20:13] You know, when Khruschev was forced out, he sat down and wrote two letters and gave them to his successor. He said - "When you get yourself into a situation you can't get out of, open the first letter, and you'll be safe. When you get yourself into another situation you can't get out of, open the second letter". Well, soon enough, this guy found himself into a tight place, so he opened the first letter. Which said - "Blame everything on me". So he blames the old man, it worked like a charm. He got himself into a second situation he couldn't get out of, he opened the second letter. It said - "Sit down, and write two letters".

My wife and I really enjoy this game and are closing in on 200 hours played. The lack of vertical progression (skills, experience, weapons, gradual character improvement) is a nice change, so we don't have to worry about other longer-term players coming along and wrecking us - we're basically on equal footing with other players, tho there can still be a skill gap in play experience. The Tall Tales, basically ~2 hour quests, are pretty fun. They recently added new enemy types, and the Pirates of the Caribbean quests are alright as well. I've been wanting to play recently but we've been busy, but now that Squid Game has finished, we can dive back into this.
This 25M players announcement is obviously just a promotional piece fishing for new players to spend money in their cosmetics shop. For what it's worth, I find most of the gold/doubloon (earned currency) cosmetics to look superior to the paid (dollars) cosmetics which are often gaudy and silly. The pets were worth the fiver though.

The PR droids must have been working on this one for at least a year.

There is only one way to stop online game cheating. Run every game in the cloud (like GFN, Shadow, Stadia etc.)
Careful what you wish for: once cloud-based competitive gaming catches on, it will spread to singleplayer games, and then you can say goodbye to mods, .ini tweaks, command line parameters, and everything else.

I'm more excited about the Steamdeck than any console since the 16bit era. This is going to be an awesome Christmas for my son and I.
Agreed, my hype level is immense, can't wait to get my hands on it and play everything from Everquest Project 1999, to FTL, to emulated & modded Breath of the Wild, to Risk of Rain 2, and everything in between. Can't wait to see what sort of 3d printed docks people will concoct for it so it can rest next to my monitor when it's in "desktop mode". Customizing the desktop environment, installing Discord and Firefox, it's just gonna be so much fun to use!

I'd like to think my "not caring" about this game is a sign of me evolving as a gamer into something with higher tastes. I looked at the game of course but.. it's just your run-of-the-mill WoW clone... I have no idea why it's popular but eh, to each their own
It's not for me either, I think I'm finally done with MMORPGs. There's obviously still a sizeable amount of players who like these style of games and this is the biggest new release since I guess FF14 became popular. Also since it's brand new it has the explorative element to it, there's no guides yet, you can probably goof around and get away with it, players will be friendlier, and so on. The "new game experience" is live right now.
My prediction is that players will quickly conquer this game and then begin complaining that the devs aren't releasing new content fast enough (just like they've done with the still-Early Access Valheim) and they'll drift away from New World back to their CSGO/Overwatch/R6S/Apex/Fortnite grinds.

I'm pretty torn on purchasing here as well. I don't want to support ActiBlizz, and I take back my previous comment about TCP/IP removal not being a big deal. It is a reasonable expectation that the game retains that functionality, and I'd rather play LAN with my spouse without having to connect to Battle.Net. Also, there's gamepad support which allows joystick movement, however there's no WASD support for keyboard/mouse players. What the hell Blizzard? It's 2021, I don't want to have to click-to-move anymore! On the other hand, the footage of the game I've seen so far has me salivating to play.
I'm probably going to cave in a week's time and buy the game, despite lack of TCP/IP and lack of WASD move.

It's like they don't read reviews, don't listen to player feedback, and just chart their own course

I'm not too bothered by this news as I use ProtonMail to escape the clutches of Gmail. I care less about E2EE in my email and more about the service not profiting by scanning my emails and metadata to sell to advertisers or simply to learn more about me as an ad vector.

My cynical take is they're rolling this out to get us all to buy new hardware from Microsoft, Dell, Alienware, whatever. DirectStorage sounds promising but I'll be eager to watch HardwareUnboxed/LTT/TechJesus' take on its improvements if any. Heck you need Gen 4 PCI to get benefits right? Great, my mobo is "too old" then.
Probably gonna stick with Win10 until 2025 when they phase out support, and by then I'll be ready to buy the AMD R5-6xxx series if it exists by then.
