anyone been playing Cyberpunk 2077? any comments on its current state, how far it has/hasn't come since launch date in terms of patches and fixes? still can't believe what a fizzer that was, and to think I was going to build a new pc for it.

mostly just fixes, the modding scene is actually quite far ahead. that being said the game was far from unplayable in its inital state (on pc at least) as some seem to claim but yeah... gameplay could deffo use some balance patches, any build is trivial even on very hard from a certain point, maybe the whole leveling system needs an overhaul. melee and hacking could use more depth, some perks are pretty much completely useless, etc. etc.

waiting for dlcs for a replay, too.

I haven't touched Cyberpunk literally since January 1st. I've mostly been out of the loop since then. All I know is that it's been getting steady updates while CDPR have been dealing with hacks/breaches at the same time. Not sure how much has actually changed since then.

My experience has mostly been stable, although I do recall a T-posing NPC once close to V's apartment. The outskirts of Night City (Nomad territory) was always the most fun to me for some reason. And while I'm almost solely dependent on guns in most FPS games, the katana ended up being my most used weapon in this one - surprisingly effective.

I'd say it's pretty sandbox-friendly overall. And it wouldn't be too far off the mark to call it a melding of Deus Ex and GTA.

interdasting. does it bring out the good in terms of story and atmosphere? that's what I like the most in my FPSes

oh, story and atmosphere never were issues in my book (matter of taste oc). if that's indeed your focus i can definitely recommend the game. city reveals itself as rather backdroppy, but extraordinarily picturesque at that. going back to gtav from cp2077 the former looks and feels rather flat in comparison imo. don't expect lots of interesting npc dialogue tho...

So I guess this game does actually exist

 

Maybe one day...
Sigh...

I remember backing it on kickstarter all the way back in 2012.
Their estimated date of release was 2014 back then. lol. 😕

From what info I can gather the game seems to be actually playable right now.
(although it's still in Alpha)
I kind of want to hold of playing it until the game reaches Beta or 1.0 Full Release...

Anyone else here already backed or bought the game?

Edit: Here's a roadmap I found on their website:

It ends in Q1 2022. ^___^
(but obviously that just means they haven't made the complete roadmap yet...)
Yeah, it's going to be a really looong time until release.

Here's a good somewhat neutral video-review about Star Citizen:

Gary Oldman & Mark Hammill might not even be alive when this finally gets released, maybe it’s the first generational video game development? lol

From 2015

I've only just been able to play Control, due to waiting for it to come out on Steam + not being able to get my computer down to London until last week

Fucking awesome game

Ah, X-Files Metroid...never finished it and haven't touched it in almost a year. If I pick it back up though I'll have to start over from the beginning. Feels weird picking up where I left off on games I've taken an extended hiatus from.

I agree though, dope game overall.

Yeah, Control is great, probably the closest thing we'll ever get to a good SCP game adaptation.

Cyberpunk 2077 didn't do nothing for me (edit; except piss me off), I quit after a handful of hours. I loved the Witcher 3, but I just had no interest in any of the characters, the story or the world as presented, and I've played the fucking OG pen and paper cyberpunk game back in the day, so I should love it. The gunplay felt like shit, the melee felt like shit, driving felt like shit, movement felt like shit (with a controller). Also, the loot is shit. I felt like a fucking garbage collector. You done goofed CDPR. 

I forgot: the UI is MEGA SHIT. So yeah, the bugs are the least of the games problems.

hard to deny yo.

Yeah, it's a nightmare with a controller -- you have to pin-point the aim every time and can't stop either, coz loot. The Witcher 3 was a loot paradise in comparison, I really don't get the decision to use 1st person with such 3rd person-based mechanics. Just by dressing yourself up with loot it could become a proper entertainment.

That said, in making all the cut-scenes playable they did the 1st person view justice, i think it was next-level immersive indeed -- a way out of cut-scenes mayhem that is happening in big games (Death Stranding finished as a literal movie). The rest of the game just don't mix well.

Moved from Tetris Effect to Puyo Puyo vs. Tetris, super distracting music & visuals. The controls on Tetris Effect are floaty to the point you have to retrain your muscle memory, and I had to turn off the strobe effect.

Really? I find them very precise, and I guess the effects don't affect (ha) me during gameplay except for times when everything turns white during a transition (like on the space station level)

i watched a few videos about star citizen a while back, the scope of it doesn't seem like it's a game that will be ever be done. you can fly to one of the planets (or moons) in the game, select a random city (out of the ones that are inhabited) and explore the city in real time. the appeal of the game also seems to be it's own limitation. besides going on missions and exploring, there isn't much else to do because it painstakingly tries to re-create real life (in space).

i'm a sucker for these minis

Been playing Disco Elysium, it's great. I think you guys would like it. Hearing your conceptualization, reptile brain, empathy, etc. talk blows my mind

lmao Cookie Clicker is being released on Steam. I've been idling in the browser version of this curse of a game for the last 5 years.

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
