Night City Stories #5: The Information and The Package
Long episode discussing The Information, The Package, Lizzies bar, and Braindances....
The life paths have converged and now we start our first day in the life of a Night City merc. In this episode we cover the first half of the prologue as we discuss the first three main missions: The Rescue, The Ripperdoc, and The Ride. Before that, however, we need to revist the Corpo opener. Jaa has played through it and feels Bob missed a few things.
The game gives us a double dose of tutorial as we work with T-Bug in a training construct, and then get to put it to use as we save a kidnapping victim. We also get our first taste of how different choices can effect outcome. We meet our first Ripper doc to help fix a glitch in our system and get upgraded cyberware up to meet with the best fixer in the city: Dexter Deshaun. We’re making our way to the big leagues, as Jackie likes to say.
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!
