Yeah, there's no excuse for the release, but gun to head, I'll take something deeply flawed with amazing potential that'll inevitably be realized over polished mediocrity any day.
The Switch drift problem is a real issue, but on the plus side, they were pretty quick about replacing my girlfriend's joycons when she sent them in. She said it seems like they just gave her new ones instead of repairing the old ones, which is probably more cost efficient for them anyway tbh. So at least they're taking it seriously.
They can take all the time they need as far as I'm concerned, the last one was a masterpiece.
Why do online publications even make articles like this unironically? I know its clickbait, but surely they want to maintain at least a veneer of credibility?
Seeing how vindictive gamers are, even in the comments to this post, I'm not sure that's possible. I've loved the work CDPR has done over the years, and I'm willing to give them a chance to redeem themselves, especially considering I'd planned on waiting for the next gen patch anyway.
It seems like they're owning up to their mistakes and busting their asses to make things right. Maybe we should cut them some slack considering their track record and their apparent commitment to make things right. Kinda crazy how unforgiving many gamers apparently are. Before you cancel them, give em a chance at least. Personally, I was planning to wait for the next gen update anyway, if they botch that too, then I'll be with you guys. Until then, why don't we cool off a little. ...
Wonder how much they were paid for this.
My friends that have played it told me it's awesome, can't wait for the next gen update.
A video of a bug in a newly released, massively ambitious, open world game? I'm interested, and I'm not sure what this is supposed to be telling me? Skyrim is littered with things like this 9 years after release. Should they have made it more ready for prime time? Sure. But as long as they get most of it ironed out by the time the next gen update comes, this does absolutely nothing to diminish my interest.
Disagree, HZD was a beautiful game visually, but the NPCs look rather plastic by comparison. CP2077 looks far more natural and lifelike. Despite your example being from cutscenes as has already been pointed out.
Yeah, we've been hearing that for years.
@septemberindecember Are you new to this site? Because Djstotty is not. He doesn't exactly have a record of being "positive" or unbiased.
All "journalism" is like that now days, boggles the mind that they have any credibility left.
Yeah, that's a shame. I've never even liked FPS games, but UT was the one exception.
Impressive. Game must have cost a fortune to develop, can't imagine they skimped on marketing either.
Is pineapple citrus? I do like a good pineapple though. Underrated fruit.
No, it doesn't.
That's my plan, I have plenty in my backlog to tide me over until I get a PS5 and with it the better experience with this game. Rather wait a bit and truly enjoy the experience. It's good to know that CDPR will have have an amazing game for us in the end, despite them dropping the ball upon release. The fact that it's getting so many perfect scores despite the performance issues has me excited.
Tbf, that's because Cdpr actually make quality games. You know the bugs will be ironed out, but a boring game is a boring game. Yes, they should have waited til it was ready, but at least we know we'll get a good game in the end.
Agreed. Don't have very high hopes for bioware these days in its current iteration.
