Night City Stories #5: The Information and The Package
Long episode discussing The Information, The Package, Lizzies bar, and Braindances....
This week we finally dive into the game story proper. Between Jaa and Bob, we cover the opening job for all three life paths: The Street Kid, The Corpo-rat, and The Nomad. We discuss the details of each, and how these jobs try to help you get to know the very different lifestyles lived in Cyberpunk 2077.
While all three life paths start different, they converge on a single point rather quickly. We discuss being a bit disappointed that the life path jobs felt a bit short, and also felt a bit rushed in terms of getting to know your character. Jaa suggests some features from other RPGs that could improve that feeling. We also jump ahead a bit and discuss the impact our life paths have had on our game play experiences after the initial job.
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!
