Night City Stories #5: The Information and The Package
Long episode discussing The Information, The Package, Lizzies bar, and Braindances....
We’ve finally had some time to spend with Cyberpunk 2077 proper, so instead of hopping directly into the story, this week we’ll focus on launch week and our initial impressions of the game. It wasn’t a very happy launch week for many, as there are an abundance of issues with the game. Last gen console players are feeling it the hardest, as in some cases the game is flat out unplayable.
While PC isn’t bug free, at least we were able to play the game with minmal issues and had the opportunity dive into Night City and the Badlands. We talk character creation, stealth and combat, hacking, how RPG elements effect you play through, dialog, love interests, and more!
Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Racing Games. Currently too involved in Overwatch.
IT System Engineer by day, avid gamer by night! Bob has been gaming his entire life and first started standing on a chair playing the arcade version of Super Mario Bros. Now he plays all kinds of games but focuses mainly on Overwatch.
CD Project Red is sorry and says they'll do better, Lucasfilm Games is doing better in sharing the Star Wars license, and fan sites need to do better in speculating on trademarks.
We finish up Act 1 with The Heist, meet Claire, learn about Rogue, and meet T-Bug for the first time before infiltrating Konpeki Plaza.
This week we recap the Maldraxxus portion of the campaign and talk about the great characters you meet, like Marileth, Vashj, Emeni, and more!
Happy New Year! We're making somewhat educated guesses about what lies ahead in 2021 for Final Fantasy XIV! Also we goof off a lot in this one. It's fun!
