    It's EXACTLY what it means

    It just shouldn't be, is all.

    Incidentally I see the Tychofication of Gabe continues.

    I guess if the only thing making you sick this year is having to play Cyberpunk 2077, you've had a helluva year.

    Maybe it's because Jerry had high expectations going in though. Not knowing much about the game, I find it kind of nice (performance issues aside). Not mind blowing, but definitely not puke inducing.

    I mean I hella guarantee if Jerry mentioned all the things that gave him anxiety this year people would be like "Just tell the jokes funny man". I mean he lives in the US we all know how god fuck awful this year has been, we don't need a reminder we get those daily by still being in fucking side.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Nurse:You have Covid.
    Patient:No, I've just been playing Cyberpunk, that's all.
    Nurese:You definitely have Covid, but maybe you would want to talk with someone else?
    Patient:Oh no, I am doing fine, thanks.

    Also the comic would be seven hundred panels.

    I hope my comment didn't go over anyone's head, but it's so tiring to have a "you can't complain about x thing because covid is worse" comment pop out all the time.

    Cyberpunk 2077 has over 195,000 positive reviews on Steam, so I guess there's a few people out there who enjoyed it.

    I like how the first several positive reviews I read all had something along the lines of, "Yes, there are bugs BUT....."

    CP2077 sounds exactly the type of game I can wait to grab the bug-fixed, GOTY version of on a $20 Steam sale in 5 years.

    Honestly I will be surprised if it takes more than one year to hit that price point.

    Steam ID: Right here.

    This is the poster child of how not to release a game now but on release Skyrim had near the exact same problem with save files for the PS3. If I remember right the file limit was 6MB?
    Patches came out, people continued to mock Bethesda Physics, and the world kept turning.
    If CDPR puts in the effort we've seen this sort of disaster can be turned around. For now we wait, and hope.

    There is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life, that cannot be improved with pizza.

    A comic about getting sick after being exposed to a video game was posted on 12/21. In other news, on 12/21 1962 people got sick and died in the United States after being exposed to Covid-19.

    I know the Cyberpunk hate is a great way to get clicks these days, but this one missed the mark just a smidge for me.

    There’s a whole thread in G&T of people enjoying it!

    Because there are obviously big bugs and anyone not saying that would be being extremely dishonest.

    The difference is saying the issues are with the bugs and not the core game.

    Which is a very important distinction to make and good for people to know.

    The food was gross and made him throw up.

    This outrage tastes a bit manufactured.

    Oof, I remember Skyrim on PS3. Nigh unplayable for me. I ended up buying it two more times (PS4 and PC). Still haven't beaten the main quest almost ten years later. One day...

    In your defense, Skyrim was one of those cases of "Runs OK everywhere...except for PS3." Like, ironically, the first Deadly Premonition.

    There is so much story packed into this game. So many missions have branches that do different subtle things, so many random corners to explore and each of those little shards you pick up have a nugget of atmosphere...

    Yes, the game is buggy as hell. I've been playing it on Stadia (where it has performed remarkably well btw) and have encountered an issue numerous times where I couldn't fire my weapon and had to exit out of the game completely to fix it but when the game performed as expected, I had a blast. I've put nearly 70 hours into the game. almost half of that was after I beat it and returned to the city to continue with side quests and upgrades.

    It is an ambitious project and if they can iron out the issues, late-comers are going to have a hell of a ride.

    If you have one, try Skyrim on an Amazon Echo. Surprisingly detailed.

    This comic describes how most people consume games the past few years.

    Definitely meme template material. Someone blank out Cyberpunk for posterity.

    Jim Sterling made a song about the game.
    As someone that got "Flagshipped" I am glad I dodged this one. . .

    Woo, biggest 2020 bandwagon award! Less than 1% of players are prevented from playing it due to not QC'ing it properly on older systems, so any bug that another 5% don't like gets conflated and amplified as though it were unplayable, and then the haters feel included. Is there a psychological term for that too? Gotta sell ads in media one way or another, i guess.

  • SatsumomoSatsumomo Rated PG! Registered User regular
    I can assure you that base consoles make up the majority of sales for this.

    Yes, there's an award involved. But it's for you. I would give it to you, but I'm afraid it might violate the glorious edict, you silly goose.
