I give it a 9.5/10 thus far. 0.5 removed from still some pending traversal issues.

I am. Itís a great game. I havenít had much gaming time to dedicate to it so I am only around level 20. Itís perfect for me right now because I only have a couple of hours a week gaming time lately. I just jump in and do whatever I feel like. There is always something new to discover. It doesnít really seem like a grind because content seems fresh and interesting in every adventure I discover. They only gripe I would add is I would also dock 0.5 off for some cheesy dialog too. I watched this cool video that compared real world locations with the content in the game. Pretty amazing:

Game is really a ton of fun. Got the third sub routine and another whole area to explore. Just so much to do in this game. Will probably go around finishing the tons of side missions that are left. Hit level 35 but still don’t feel OP like the old game. Optionality on weapons is also dope. I want to get legendary weapons also but don’t want to use a walkthrough.

Will keep playing this for a while for sure.

Nice, you are much further than I am. For me this is the perfect casual game for my current busy schedule. I am currently inching towards the first subroutine. I am really taking my time and playing around with every aspect. I can jump in and just walk around to different areas and see what hidden stuff I find, play a main or a few side quests, solve a ruin puzzle, experiment with a new weapon, or just randomly take out machines I meet for the first time. None of it has gotten boring or tedious yet. Iíve already met three different tribes that were all very unique. Side quests feel a lot like different storylines. Havenít seen a game do that this well since Witcher 3. They added so many nice little touches as well. You can randomly find the ruins of an downed aircraft, poke around and find some valuable resources inside and also an audio log chronicling the final moments of the doomed flight. Really cool stuff. I have a long way to go. But this is already turning into one of those game where you want to open up the whole map and leave no ď?Ē unexplored.

Yes it’s been great. Was a bit tired so didn’t move on with it today. Tomorrow I am spending a few hours on it for sure.

KAC Mar 14, 2022 02:13 AM

Spent most of the weekend pumping through Forbidden Dope. Did quite a few quests and also progressed on the main. Was trying to get some black boxes, contracts and sides done before progressing on the main. One thing I am a bit pissed about are the weapons and upgrades. It is so difficult to find the right materials for upgrades unless you go farming which is something I really didn’t want to do. So I am carrying on as is.

Overall still enjoying it quite a bit. Some of the relics were also quite the brain teasers. Hoping to get some legendary outfits and weaponry.

Using jobs makes this much easier. You can add a job on the upgrade screen. It will make a job quest to point you right to where to get the parts. There is a vendor that sells legendary. You need the tokens you get from Arena and Hunting Grounds to buy them. If you havenít found the vendor yet you may have to look at some spoilers. The vendor is fairly early on. Iíd save upgrading until you grab one of them..

Can anyone please tell me why the **** my PS5 controller will turn on console on, but then when it tells me to press the PS button it's like the controller loses its sync with the system and I have to reboot the console almost every god damn time? I've looked around on Reddit and a lot of others have this issue, none of their solutions work for me.

KAC Mar 21, 2022 01:05 AM

Doesn't happen to me. RMA controller?

KAC Mar 22, 2022 02:00 AM

The quests in Forbidden Dope are never ending. I was like let’s go out and do some side quests. **** now I have at least 10 more. This doesn’t include all the black box, arena, tall necks and cauldrons that I still need to do. Dafuq.

I hear you. I still am not that good at taking machines down fast. The variety of weapon choices is too huge. Normally, I like to settle in on weapon of choice. But the game forces you to switch around too much. Otherwise it takes too long to take machines out. The good side is that it is making me play around more with different weapons. And some were worth learning. But each one can have 3 ammo types and multiple secondary weapon fire options. I havenít found one yet that just delivers all the time. You found any that you think are ďgo toĒ options? I tend just to stick with hunter bows because ammo is easy to craft. It just takes forever to bring down a big enemy 80 damage at a time. Been working on increasing crit chance. But that still doesnít create massive damage :(

KAC Mar 22, 2022 11:51 AM

I am using spike thrower, the crossbow that operates like a rifle, and hunting bow plus specific damage bows (for acid and fire). I usually have all effects in the arsenal so I can switch easily. Only one pissing me off is tear ammo which is very costly and I never have enough. I am level 43 now and still pushing through. Legendary gear is so hard to come by unless you dick around with collectathons which ****ing sucks ass. So I am just upgrading purple gear now and have 40 jobs so that I know when to use tear for that component.

Haven't been a big fan of spike throwing. Seems cumbersome to line up and throw. I do have the Rampart Blastsling. It's like a rapid-fire explosive spike throw. You can buy it at the Arena for hunter medals. So you do need to execute some hunting grounds to get it. I think I got enough medals really fast at the first hunting grounds.

Sounds like they took a page out of Ubisoft's playbook, lol

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is probably a good comparison. They have skipped a lot of the annoying gameplay in that game though. The game also has a much more interesting world and better crafted side quests. I can't judge the main story yet as I am not that far into it. But, I like it so far. The presentation and graphics are pretty amazing. The environments are varied and highly detailed. Map-wise it seems a little smaller than AC. But, that's not necessarily a bad thing. If open-world question mark exploring, engaging story, immersive environment, and varied combat is your thing, this game delivers. Possibly over delivers as the completist in me is starting to fatigue some. If you want options on things to do. There is no shortage!

Here is a non-mainstream review from a guy who claims to "Do (almost) Everything" in the game. It's fairly spoiler free and a guide to the good, the great, and the ugly parts of this open world:


KAC Mar 22, 2022 07:54 PM

I would say it is more like Witcher 3 than Ass Creed unless you count the scaling mountains/buildings but. But questing feels solid with full back stories like it was in Witcher 3.

Finished Horizon 2. If you haven’t played it yet, just go and grab it. One of the best games I have played. Absolutely boss like. :drool:

Awesome! I was a little under-leveled for the main story quests so decided to do a bunch of side quests. Now I am stuck in the loop of too many side quests. But I am enjoying most all of them. Plus, many give you some pretty good weapons and armor. Now I have the opposite problem as I am now over-leveled for the main story quests. I am definitely getting much better at the combat too. You need to invest some time into the different mechanics they provide you. There are so many options that it takes a while to understand the right one for the current situation. But once you do, some harder fights become very trivial. With my limited gaming time, I'll probably finish in a month or longer...

KAC Mar 28, 2022 12:05 PM

I would say totally do the relics and get the legendary disc launcher. It is very helpful in last few levels. One of the best things I did for end game.

Won’t spoil anything for you. And yes there is tons of optionality and I love the combat in this game.

jimjobob Mar 28, 2022 12:46 PM

The first game I was all about all the different weapon types and setting traps and trip wires and such. Iím currently level 26 I think and so far Iíve pretty much just used hunter and sharpshooter bows. I donít even bother with the elements.

That's how I started too. But it takes forever to take down some high level enemies. Element states are very useful. Explosions caused by fire can cause massive damage. Your bow can cause major damage when an enemy is brittle. Knock off one their weapons and us it against them totally owns large enemies. Elemental traps and explosive traps can also own enemies. It's almost a cheat that you can mark their patrol routes. If you pick an elemental trap they are weak to you can save a lot of traps as one using the right element can sometimes fully do the job.

KAC Mar 29, 2022 06:25 AM

Without elements the game is a bitch to play. Elements are most important especially once you hit 30+ level monsters like Thunderjaw etc.

Was taking out an apex thunderjaw around lvl 20 with the bows and itís launchers. Kind of slow though waiting on the focused shot recharge. The giant fish thing with the spinner on its back took about ten minutes last night though.

That's where elements help you. Those guys are weak to cold so it's easy to make them brittle. Once they are brittle, they take tons of damage from your arrows. I can take them down in minutes. 2 frost grenades freezes them, pummel them with arrows while brittle. Repeat a couple of times and they are down. If you are playing hard or very hard it would take longer.

KAC Mar 29, 2022 11:05 PM

Yeah, it’s not very hard to focus on elements. I have typically acid, explosion, electricity, pulse and freeze with me. Only one I missed was fire and purge water. However, for those idiots the spike thrower with explosion was enough. That and tear ammo would do quite the damage.

That's exactly what I use too.

So I decided yesterday it's time to upgrade my tv. Was playing in the basement in 65" LED we bought 5 years ago but the tv was on 24/7 as my wife doesn't work so not sure how many hours it has on it and I noticed the display isn't so great anymore so got a 55" LG C1 OLED and wow what a difference. Didn't think it would make such a big difference but cyberpunk looks amazing on it. Screen is obviously smaller but moved the PS5 to the spare bedroom so the room is smaller so think it's a good size for the room. Also picked up a pulse headset so it's improved my games experience

Of course people can’t hold onto their panties when they see OLED especially in gaming.

Tyr-Sog Apr 18, 2022 05:48 PM

Game screenshots.

Is there anyway to send them to my email?

I'm so close to buying a 48" C1 that's just dedicated for my PS5. Under a grand now. 55" is $100 more, hmmm.
