Devin Rardin: Cyberpunk 2077 had a rocky launch, expecially on console, but CD Projekt Red will redeem it with patches and DLC. They must.
Question is how may patches will it take to make the game playable on XB1 and PS4 free DLC means f*ck all when the game is unplayable. Personally I am dumping this game next week I just gave up on it I don't care about it I just want it gone now. Some of the glitches were funny at first like randomly falling through the map and dying or looking in the mirror and V is in their birthday suit when they had clothes on. It has some characters I like such as Evelyn, Jackie, Panam, Johnny but the game has been sitting more then being played. And I really don't want to play guess how many patches it will take to fix the game.
"free DLC means f*ck all when the game is unplayable" I agree. Though CDPR did say they would focus on fixing the game first before they start releasing the DLC.
I wouldn't know I traded off the game I am tired of it sitting and collecting dust I am done with the franchise. I am done playing guess when the next patch comes out and how bad it f*cks up the game. DLC don't care, multiplayer don't care, the game is gone and used the credit towards another title.
They went as low as to develop an E3 only showcase of the game that has nothing to do with the actual game itself, the problem with this junk isn't just hardware limitations but much much more ranging from shitty AI, physics, driving, balancing, cut contents, useless crafting, and I don't believe people will ever see the promised immersive world of CP0277 were life path and choices actually matter and impact the game, were the NPCs have a real day/night life cycle, and all those fake promises that they've announced before. Such a disappointment. I care less about the bugs, but the core development of this game is just bad, like really bad, you can tell that they didn't finish coding many stuff, and rushed this shit with bad coding just to look "ok" from outside. It's like walking into those useless expansive utensils stores whit a sign that says "You can only watch. But don't touch"
Yeah the biggest disappointment is all the cut content and features. The entire game is a shell of what they promised.
We shouldn't be rewarding the "release now, fix it later mentality" I will not be buying this game at no point, no matter how much improved it is, they knew they were screwing their customers and they did it anyway
So the game is only "fixed" if it's playable on 7+ year old hardware that was outdated when it released? Well forgive me if I would personally prefer the old base consoles be forgotten and that they would focus on next gen only. Focusing on last gen is like betting on a dead horse.
There are millons of people that bought the game for PS4 and Xbox One, and big portion of those won't have a next gen console for a long time. So no, they shouldn't just stop fixing previous gen consoles. The game was always promised to be on those consoles and those customers deserve the game that was promised, or at least as close to it as possible.
If a game is released for last gen, it should still work. Will it look as good as on new consoles and PC, of course not, but it should at least be playable and it is not for many. That said, many are being so freaking picky about tiny details that it will never reach an acceptable level for them. Those people are just being unrealistic IMHO.
It's not just about patches and updating CP2077, its also largely about how do you know they won't keep doing the same sneaky tactics for their future games following CP? No management got fired over this so it'll still be the same underhanded corrupt people making decisions then later releasing "we're sorrrry" vids. How many would trust CDProjekt without question after this?
Yup. Both TW3 and CP2077 released broken and buggy. I hope people are more cautious with CDPR's next game.
I played The Witcher 3 on base PS4 on the day of release and it was NOT this buggy, no fking way.
I didn't say TW3 was as buggy as CP2077. But it was significantly buggy, and had some game breaking issues. CP2077 is obviously the worse of the two, that's not even up for debate.
The missing features and cut back character development aren't going to be fixed with performance patches.
Will we be seeing more of these articles? Like at this point it’s just another drop in the bucket.
Sure, but will it be redeemed in time? I want to play it, but with rumors of a proper Next Gen patch not coming until the second half of 2021 - that feels like too little too late
Those aren't rumours. It's their own words. Bet it won't drop till 2022
When will they redeem? 2077? Seriously after all the bad news upon bad news upon lie. It's best not get your hopes up. Alot of people me included were fooled for 7+ years.
Patches won't fix it. It's fundamentally broken at the core. The AI, mechanics, the world itself. It clearly needed a year or two to be finished.
I just asked this question on GOG forum, becuase know next to nothing about game deving. The AI would take some work but it can be fixed, the mechanics can be tweeked with less work and the world itself is awesome. It's not fundamentally broken core, this is hyperbole.
Hopefully a wakeup call for an industry that had no respect for its consumers.
If it ran perfect today it still would be a shell of what it should have been with time. Instead of montages of the cut content life paths they might as well just montage the whole game and do something else.
The game is garbage. NPC'S are awful, possibly worst i've seen in a modern video game. No reaction to things you do. Police appear from nowhere, objects and NPC'S pop in and out all over the place. So many details missing. GTA3 has more going on lol. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
This is what I call, "one angry parrot." You just got white nighted.
You're an obvious troll. Learn how to be more subtle if this is really your "thing." Also learn how to spell.
@ fon Just throw in the word troll and we are good to go. Do what you got to do. Btw, forgetting to type a "k" is a typo which can be changed. I'm not so sure other "things" are as easily changed, If you catch my drift.
CP2077 shouldn't be compared to GTA, it's ridiculous. If going round killing random NPC's is your thing, then stick with GTA. CP2077 does a ridiculous amount in other areas that GTA doesn't. Can't we just enjoy both games for what they are and realise they are games and are never going to be perfect? I think my tolerance may be high to be fair, after growing up loading games for 10 minutes+ on tape that often crashed just as they loaded.
I'm here to white night CP2077. The game is already fun and will be even better with the patches. The side missions are off the charts only TW3 rivals them.
Difficult to understand when other games provide less bugs and better graphics on the older systems.
Recent AC games look better and have less bugs, but they are live service single player games. I enjoyed RDR2, Days Gone, HZD and TW3 and so on. While HZD is probably the most polished open world game I have ever played, the side missions weren't near as interesting to me. And I love the CP2020 tabletop. I will also probably enjoy the new Vampire game that will also probably be technically inferior to most current gen and next gen games. It's really not that difficult to understand.
after playing for so many hours now in my PS5 the only thing I can say is, it will take up to more than a year in order CDPR fixes everything and by everything I mean the bugs and add the missing code this game needs, for example the police behavior, it literally doesn't have any code in it lol, or missing physics, missing ragdoll effects, buggy lightning effects , lots of things missing, lol the water effects(none), seriously the only reason why I probably keep playing this game is cause the 60 fps! XD .
Nope, I don't support trash like this and never will. Even. After three years I will not pay a penny for a trash game that lied to its players.
A lot of people love this game, so I'm sure whilst the messy release will be remembered, the game will be appreciated for how it does in the long term. Why do I keep hearing stuff about cut content???
Because there's cut content...
What's been cut that was promised? Really hope you're not talking about wallrunning.
Cyberpunk 2077 really had a rocky development and it sounded like they needed another year or two to finish it.
I hope for the best CDPR to bounce back
By which time no one will care. We'll be paying rahgnarok, halo infinite, gt7 etc and this debacle will just be a distant memory.
It won't...It will get better and eventually be a much better game. Likely to end up in some complete edition down the road. That said the stain of releasing it as it was will continue to haunt the game and CDPR. Even their next title will fall under heavy scrutiny with Q&A sessions always returning to "what have you learned from 2077's release" and article titles like "Should gamers trust CDPR?"
The game is not unplayable, Im on a ps4. and I have completed the game and most of the missions, Yes it crashed a few times, but it never glitched so bad that I had to manually reboot the game. it was completely playable and it was fun too. great story awesome guns, skill tree, and upgrades. With new patches I can see this becoming incredible. Quit blowing things out of proportion.
