Night City Stories #6: The Heist
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 is a long one thanks to how many outcomes you can get with The Package. Also, we have a new host joining us, so we had to let him introduce himself. On this episode we will cover both main missions The Information and The Package. We discuss going to Lizzies to meet Evelyn Parker and going through our first Braindances. We also discuss a little bit about the history of Lizzies and how the Mox formed to protect sex workers, and then about the primary form of entertainment in this world, the Braindance.
From there we move on to The Package, which might be the most versatile mission in the game. We counted five, maybe six, possible outcomes for this mission and we discuss them all. Do you pay them with your own money? Do you give them the credit chip? Do you crack the chip or keep the virus on it? We also talk a bit about Meredith Stout, our first interaction with Militech, and how we wish the rest of the game played more like this mission.

Over 30 years of gaming in the book and looking forward to a lot more. Love all genres of games in one way or another, but ARPGs, Story Driven Single Player, and Multiplayer Shooters are my jam.
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!
