I know, right? Which means Twitter and Facebook and all the other social media apps should have been shut down this summer as well.

Everyone is OK with censoring people they disagree with. Just wait until it's your opinion they disagree with and you get censored. I don't agree with either side, since they are both full of self-serving politicians just looking to get rich and powerful off the backs of the people. The logic defying twists both sides play trying to redefine reality is just mind blowing.

No, everyone is OK with COMPANIES having the final say who they chose to serve. YOU started this with the bakers. It's all fine and dandy to until you are on the other side of the fence then it's "unfair" *cry your fake tears here*.

Wonderful thing about the right, they love setting a bad president until it comes back the bites them in the ass then they pretend they were not the ones who even open said can of worms to start with. I have never seen a bunch of people who loved the motto "he won, get over it" in 2016 unable to "get over it" in 2020 on several levels.

Either case good riddance to that plague on humanity.

Sooooooo it will go on sale soon?! Smart

Probably a $20 drop in short order.

Over 13mil units sold, 3rd week as steam #1 sales, over 320mil profit after all expenses. The rumors of its death is greatly exaggerated.

That said, the story, writing, characters, music is 10/10. It is an amazing experience (on the PC at least) that on my first play though brought me to tears on more then one occasion. You feel for many of these characters and they stick with you. It will be the crime of the century of this game does not win awards for writing/story/acting or music at least. No piece of fiction has moved me like this since American Beauty.

Glad to see CP2077 #1 for 2nd week in a row, on the PC is a CRPG master piece in storytelling, writing and acting. It deserves the sales it gets and can't wait for the DLC and expansions to start dropping.

For the minor, surface flaws (PC version, couldn't care less about consoles common sense, critical thinking after seeing the trailers should have told you it was going to be taxing at best on 8 yr old hardware) of CP2077 they actually RELEASED a game (albeit a few months too early). A game that on a story, writing, voice acting level is a 10/10 in my mind. A story that brought this grown man to tears on more then one occasion as I actually cared for the characters and empathized with them in this figurative Greek tragedy story. If S42 actually gets released, and that is debatable, sure it may be all 'polished' but will the story grip you? Will give you gut punch after gut punch. Or will be all fluff of 'look they got luke skywalker in the game' kind of artificial depth. I rather get a flawed (that will get fixed) masterpiece of storytelling then a bug free experience that on a story, character and emotional level is as shallow as a puddle. shrug YMMV

250-300mil in profit they are doing alright. (Yes that is not the full amount I am even after refunds, taking another ~30% on average for GOG discounts and steam cuts and the like. On the PC this game is fantastic mostly just immersion breaking bugs (floating objects, misfired animations, etc), 2 quest bugs I found that are side missions so easily avoidable. As a whole the game looks and runs awesome. AMD 2700x RTX 2060 max everything ray trace off lowest FPS 40s, highest 90s I am mostly in the 60s FPS range, quite nice and playable. Occasional screen tearing but only happens for a moment, not consistently.

The story is AMAZING as is the writing and acting. 10/10 hands down. On a RPG, story level this game will become a classic with NV, Torment and BG2 over time. I have no doubt. This game is just emotional gut punch after gut punch. Greek fucking tragedy that made me tear up.. I love it.

The issue is people using the crafting for tons of money exploit. Pretty much every person having this issue is using some kind of money dupe/crafting exploit. Yes those items stay in vendors inventories for 24 hrs, so if you craft a thousand items which some people are doing and dump them all around town that explodes your save. People crafting normally and getting to end game from what I am seeing is not breaking 6meg file size. Don't want to corrupt your game don't use exploits shrug.

This is DEFINITELY a wait at least six months to a year game before buying, hoping that they can fix all that they screwed up in that timeframe...

Cue No Mans Sky references

"DEFINITELY"? In your expert opinion since you so much s/w dev under your belt? Like most people on this site that loves to talk out of their arse about topics they know little about, try more like 6-8 weeks tops. First major patch in Jan, then another in Feb. There is little history to look at their track record to suggest after the 2nd major patch at the latest it won't be a pretty good shape.

On the PC it's already in decent shape after the 2 hot fixes. Certainly still some bugs but most of them are immersion not game breaking that I found. I was able to play my first play though in 90 hrs w/o 1 crash and only forced to reload twice in that time. The amazing writing, story and voice acting is pure gold. If they don't get a writing/voice acting award for this game it will be a crime. I had this game hit me in the feels 3 times with the writing and plot twists, and the acting. No other game has come close to that since Dragon Age Origins.

This is a really, really, bad argument...
It doesn't matter when a game comes out on any console... Consoles (outside of the more recent base vs pro versions) are static hardware (unlike our beloved million-variation PCs), and every game launched on them, should work on them. It's up to those companies releasing on a console to make sure their engine is 'dumbed down' enough that it runs smoothly, not up to the consumers, who rightly assumed a product for their console should work on their console.

Translation: 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.

Also I repeat myself; I will say they should have been more upfront with last gen console players (or even better just make it for next gen) but I get it, the install base of a 8 yr old console is big and wanted that sweet money. However after seeing the game play videos and screen shots past year people should have had the common sense to realize it was going to be iffy, at best, running this on 8 yr old hardware. If you mindlessly follow PR teams spin without any critical thinking that is partly on you.

The irony being this genre, game is a warning message about just that, the fact that eludes those console players complaining is sad and says something itself.

It sounds like they lost a billion off their valuation.

I was wondering when the "stock dip" that was previously reported was going to materialize into silly articles like this one.

EXACTLY. I can tell those who understand finance and those that don't by reading the replies here. But this is the internet not grasping a topic never stopped people from commenting on it as if they did and sounding foolish. That aside those that work in finance understand this is nothing. In a week or two all of a sudden the stocks will be a "great buy" and it will pop back up again. shrug, much to do about nothing. Just a reactionary, sensationalist article for the gullible who think it matters in the long term, which it does not.

That aside I am having a blast with CP2077. Nothing but immersion breaking bugs and one bad save game that I needed to go back and reload. One or two side missions that are spotty but you can easily avoid them until the next patch. Over all having an awesome time on my AMD 2700X, RTX 2060 with about 60 FPS average with FX on high and ray trace off. The story, well written NPCs, voice acting and seemingly endless side missions is amazing!

The only "outrage" is this next gen game does not work good on ones 8 yr old hardware.. cry me a river. This is my shocked face. Yes I know they said otherwise, they 'lied' or whatever else you want to say about it and sure, they were less then upfront. However COMMON SENSE looking at the game play footage past year it should have been clear last gen console were going to run iffy, at best. This was a game you need modern hardware for. Period. So yes while they should have been more upfront YOU should have the common sense to realize trying to play a game released in late 2020 was going to run like a dog on 2012 hardware. Or better yet get a mid range video card/cpu from 2012 and try to play this (or any other 2020) game. Let me know how it performs. EXACTLY.

So you 8 yr old console players have to take SOME responsibility for being cheap and not looking at it realistically.

As a PC player I am loving this game. Deff GotY contender in my view. Not one crash and getting around 50-60fps average on my RTX 2060 on high settings, ray trace off. Is there some immersion bugs? Yes. But nothing game breaking in my 40 hrs or so, so far playing. Us PC players are doing as a whole just fine. Little to no "outrage" here.

They should have nixxed last gen consoles and not ever tried to get this to run on such. But their words aside they presented you all the info you needed to know it wasn't going to run good. You chose to look the other way and swallow the PR speak hook line and sinker, and that is frankly on you. shrug.

In 6-8 weeks this game will be tip top shape with only a few straggling issues. I have yet to have 1 CTD (played 2 sessions over 8 hrs each) or game breaking bugs. Some immersion breaking yes. Not game breaking.

AMD 2700X, 32gig RAM, RTX 2060 w/ FX on high, ray trace off. No noticeable fps or related issues.

Latest driver, No AV (use windows defender) and no other app running aside from discord & steam. shrug

Not to mention the villainously awful last generation console ports.

Listen, if you buy a next gen game, and expect it to run like anything but a dog on 7-8 yr old hardware/console then you lack common sense. And I know.. 'but they said...' fuck what they said, you fell for the marketing team double talk. YOU fell for it. This is what the 50th fucking game in the past few years this is happened to and yet you STILL fell for the hype? Sorry while yes they should have simply nixxed current gen consoles, been more upfront with the challenges, you in the end made a choice to fall for the PR teams efforts. At some point ones lack of common sense and ignoring historical precedence has to fall on you for being gullible.

Please note I use the term "you" not to mean literally you, just 'you' as in those that are raging on the internet ATM about current gen consoles.

~10 hrs into CP2077 and I JUST got to the main title screen. Did the main missions and about half a dozen side missions on top of just exploring and taking everything in (TV shows, reading ebooks, etc). Those reviewers who said you can do the main mission in 20-25 hrs sure you probably can. But then you are missing SO much more content and depriving yourself of the atmosphere. This is a game where you need to focus on the JOURNEY and NOT the destination.

AMD 2700X, 32gig RAM, RTX 2060 running high GFX, ray trace off and very playable and enjoyable. No game stopping bugs just annoying, immersion breakingone. ie floating objects, odd physics, etc.

Overall an excellent game solid 9/10 so far bugs aside.

I mean, things that contain Dairy legally need to tell you, so that you don't accidentally eat it and die.
Epilepsy is the same. Just warn people so they don't sit down to play a game and end up dying.

They only have a warning at the opening screen of the game and I believe the same verbiage on the physical box. Same warning that has persisted in movies and gaming for ~20 yrs and no one had a issue with it until now apparently.

I am a proud bleeding heart liberal. BLM, feminism, democratic socialism, fighting against racism & bigotry I am fine with. But this here.. I draw the fucking line.

The cyberpunk genre aesthetic is BASED on neon strobes and glitzy, flashing lights. Removing that aesthetic would be detrimental to the atmosphere. For those jumping on this bandwagon so you think all these scenes in the bladerunner movies should be removed as well? Exactly.

Listen, some people can't eat dairy. And that's ok they find other things to eat. So because they can't eat ice cream it should be banned from being sold and I have to go without? Not everyone can do everything. Life isn't fair sometimes, some things I can't, unable to do and you don't see be begrudging those that can and telling them they shouldn't because I cant. I simply put my big boy pants on and get over it.

That aside, I tossed in my towel 6 months after it was announced. Due to the retcons and setting changes in V5 which BL2 is based. V5 reads partly like bad fanfic. I said at the start this studio may have bitten off more then it can chew and seems my worries were spot on. If they need almost another year that means a LOT of code re-writes (assuming the story, plot doesn't need any work too) as the thing clearly seems to be in rough shape.

On another subject, I've asked their social media channels multiple times if implants will be optional. I think it could be cool to play a character who abstains, but they've never answered, so I think they'll be forcing cyber mods on you, so it's not really a true RPG, and that kind of bums me out.

That is like saying, I can't play a D&D PC game with no weapons it's not a real RPG. If the narrative and setting states everyone has some level of cyberware for one reason or another then it does not make it any less a RPG. It's simply a issue you have with the setting and Pondsmith.
