I think simply adding a companion-type feature would be enough. They tag along and make quips about the missions.

We do get some of that with Judy and Panam, there's also a mission with Rouge. That's if you bother to do any of their side missions. People seem to really just want more missions with Jackie. 

 

I don't care much for MP or any type of co-op play. I think there's enough for them to fix and add back in already.

I do enjoy those missions, but they're not a consistent partner like Jackie is. I felt more like a third wheel helping them all out than like I was part of a team. I don't think it's a necessary change though, more like an ideal for me. It's kinda like with Halo Wars, the best part of that game was the cooperative campaign. I really wish that was available in multiplayer because the idea of splitting up duties in an RTS between two or more people was really enjoyable.

 

As far as some real quality of life improvements, making the crafting system more fleshed out would be a plus. It's difficult to get crafting specs for things you actually want, and most of the time you can't even alter its appearance in any meaningful way (such as color). So it ends up being more of a stats game than a style thing. Most of the other flaws though are talked about quite often to I'm not going to reiterate those here.

I've started digging into all the fixer jobs recently now that I already beat the game, and some of them are a lot more interesting than I ever expected them to be. This game is definitely packed with content and there's a lot to see (and a lot of rewards for doing so).

I agree, my favorite moments of the game are working with Jackie because it feels like you're in a team. The moment you're running solo things get less interesting. But to each their own.

I am totally opposite.  I hate having to work with someone, it feels like I am a babysitter.  I prefer solo.

About done playing the game for now.  At the point of no return with my 2nd Nomad character and stopping there for now.  Waiting to see what consequences/changes there are depending on what ending you take before I proceed.  Like I am hoping it does not matter what ending you take, you can still go to space.  My relationship with Johnny is 70 percent as well so I have enough for the secret ending.   Only thing I do not like about this play through is not getting the Psalm weapon spec, but that is not enough to make me do another play thru.

I still haven't finished my first play.  A friend got me Death Stranding and I'm not saying I like it more (at all) but it is nice to wait out the major patch releases on 2077.

I think that, regardless of which of the 3 major endings you go with (which mirror the 3 life paths you start with) that any future post-ending story DLC will have you heading to space either way.   The space port which is locked off to us atm, will for sure be a area they open up in future DLC.   The start of the dlc might be different, it could let you pick the ending you want to go with if you multiple ones before you start it for example.  But I think that just like with the life paths at the start of the game, after the initial first mission all the rest will be the same.

Hope so.  But I have done everything there is to do a couple times and nothing left in the game.   Time to find a diff game to play until more content is released.

Yeah, in my playthrough I forgot to try it.  I don't know how much it will impact future stuff at this point.

It's brought up when you're talking to Hanako from what I remember.  If he's alive he shows up to help you out if you go with the Hanako path.  Otherwise I think only Oda (if you left him alive to) comes up to help you in that ending path.  Or you have to do it all solo.

Some may already know this, but I did not notice until after my 3rd play thru. Even after reading guides and walk thrus....

Legendary clothing specs from vendors...apparently there are 3 vendors that offer legendary clothing items. As most of us know, currently bugged so you only see them the first time you talk to the clothing vendors. There are 3 that offer legendary. 2 of those, you get 4 legendary. One, you get 5. According to the guide I read. Before you talk to the vendor, save your game. And them keep loading/reloading until you get all the legendary items you can get from the vendor in 1 roll. May take some time. I got about 14 or so legendary clothing specs. To get the other types of clothing mods, do the same things with the other clothing shops.

There are several free legendary clothing items and weapons you can find for free out in the wild. Many guides that show you where. But I thought this was the only ones available for free. But in my latest play through, I thought I would try random loot/chests to see what I can get. Mind you, I was lvl 40 when I tried this and playing normal diff. I found a epic Arasaka helmet in a chest. I saved and reloaded a few times and I got a legendary max slots. I did the same thing when I found a epic Neokitsch Pasion Purpura Polyamide Foldtop. Same goes for a epic bat, knife, and a variety of weapons. So there are many more free legendary items you can get that are not in the many guides online. Just remember to save your game if you find something you think may roll over to an legendary before you pick it up. And may take 6+ game reloads until a legendary comes up. I would say if you tried more than 10 times, it will not roll over to a legendary.

Also, I was able to get the legendary detonate grenade, legendary suicide, legendary cyberpsychosis, and a few other legendary quick hacks with only lvl 6 intelligence. I am not playing a netrunner build but quickhacks can still come in handy. Just hack the terminals you can when you see them and eventually you will pull the legendary items you need. My cyberdeck is all legendary quickhacks now.

Completed 1 last play thru the other day and stopped before the point of no return.  Saved Goro and got most of the legendary gear/clothing if not all of it.   I did about 2.5 play thrus and that is enough.

Yeah, it's mid Feb and no word on the 1.2 update or anything else.  After the hack it's been radio silence it seems.   I'm waiting to see what the update brings before I jump back in.

Next update is most likely more bug fixes and game improvements.  I don't think we will be seeing new content until the middle/end of the year.  Still lots to fix in the game before new stuff is added.  But not stopping me from enjoying it.

Played a little more.  Missed the Kerry story line for some reason.  So new content for me.

A number of those like Kerry come up once enough time passes, so if you skip the time up 24hr or so they should come up.   It's still not looking good how they're radio silent on the next update.  Probably using the hack as a excuse to push things back I bet.  Looks like 1.2 might come next month at best, if not April.

I'm seeing lots of speculation here with nothing to actually back it up.

 

We'll know when they say or release something, until then there's not much point making assumptions.

I am speculating but I'm going off of the info they have officially posted.  On their website they say 1.2 is going to come weeks later after 1.1.

 

Either way, I've jumped over to other games and will fire it up again once the next patch finally hits.

Didn't 1.1 come out at the end of the month?

Yeah, around this time.   So weeks later would be around now or start of March.   Which is why with the hack they could delay it to April.  I'm just making a educated guess off of what they've officially stated on their site.

 

On a side note I've seen some posts that show they're looking to hire more devs.   I hope they fix the game we have now before they even think of doing the multiplayer game.  But from the sounds of it CDPR wants cyberpunk online to be like GTA online which is a big cash cow for rockstar.   The fear is that they release some free dlc, 2 expansions and quickly move on to the MP game without doing much else, like AI work or getting the NCPD system to actually work like they talked about.

Finally have some info about what patch 1.2 is going to address.

 

https://www.cyberpunk.net/en/news/37768/whats-new-in-night-city-patch-1-2-development-insight

 

Here's what we know so far....

 

Police NPCs will take longer to arrive on scene. In Cyberpunk 2077, committing a crime instantaneously summons an army of police officers that blatantly pop into existence in your immediate area. In the 1.2 update, police NPCs will now take longer to show up, as if they're actually traveling to the scene. Committing a crime will also summon a police recon drone, as if the police are first scouting the area before arriving.

 

Improvements to vehicle steering and settings. Steering the many vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077 can be annoying on PC or at lower framerates, so CDPR is delivering some improvements in this area. Players will now have access to a steering sensitivity slider in options, and steering has been tweaked to be more consistent even at lower framerates and for specific vehicle models.

 

Methods to "unstick" vehicles. Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world title, and it can be easy to get your vehicle stuck somewhere in Night City occasionally. In the 1.2 patch update, CDPR is adding a feature that allows players to rock their vehicles in all directions if they get into a situation where they're accelerating but not moving.

 

Improvements to key binding / dodge. CDPR is working on making key bindings and control settings easier and more comprehensive for players, starting with the dodge function in the 1.2 patch update. Dodging when double-tapping a movement key will be able to be disabled.

 

It sounds like they're starting to work on implementing the NCPD systems people expected to start, this might not be in 1.2 but a later update should for example add actually police cars driving around and police chases.

      Google promises 100 games coming to Stadia in 2021
      by Usama Jawad

      Google's Stadia has been making the headlines recently, but not for good reasons. A couple of weeks ago, the company announced that it is shutting down its Stadia Games & Entertainment division, which was responsible for developing exclusive games for the platform. Earlier this week, we also found out that the Stadia version of Terraria is canceled because Google has disabled the developer's account.

      In a bit of relatively more positive news today, Google has announced that more than 100 games will be coming to the platform in 2021.

      The promise of 100 games this year is a bit of a downgrade compared to the 120 it vowed to bring to the platform in 2020. However, this shouldn't distract from the fact that this is still a significant number. Google has also revealed the names of nine titles that are coming soon, and they are as follows:

      Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition - February 23 Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut - February 23 It came from space and ate our brains - March 2 FIFA 21 - March 17 Kaze and the Wild Masks - March 26 Judgment - April 23 Killer Queen Black - Coming soon Street Power Football - Coming soon Hellpoint - Coming soon Other games slated to release in 2021 also include Far Cry 6 and Hello Engineer. Stadia currently offers over 100 games to stream over the internet, with the promise of more to come. A few months ago, a Stadia executive stated that Google is tracking development for 400 games from 200 developers. It remains to be seen whether the company will be able to keep up with this figure, but the latest announcement will certainly restore some amount of confidence for users of the platform.

      CDPR advises caution in using Cyberpunk 2077 PC mods after discovery of security exploit
      by Usama Jawad

      To say that highly-anticipated 2020 title Cyberpunk 2077 has had a rough going since launch would be an understatement. The game has been plagued with serious performance issues - especially on last-gen consoles -, bugs, and glitches. Despite all of this, it is important to note that it still managed to sell over 13 million copies in a few weeks. Now, the game's developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has advised caution when using mods in the game after the discovery of a security exploit.

      CD Projekt Red says that there are some vulnerabilities in the external DLL files that the game uses, so it is advising against using custom mods and saves in Cyberpunk 2077's PC version for now. The title's official Twitter support account had the following to say:

      While it is unclear as to when a fix will be released, custom mods are an important component of the PC version of the game, so it is likely that this is a high priority issue for CDPR.

      This is just one of the many things that the developer will be working on in the near future. The firm promised two major patches in the first half of 2021 to fix performance issues in Cyberpunk 2077. The first one was released just a few days ago but contained new game-breaking bugs as well, which the company addressed in a hotfix. CDPR has also modified its dedicated webpage to indicate that DLC will be coming in the "coming months"; the company had previously made a commitment of "early 2021".

      That said, you should definitely hold off on using custom mods and saves from unreliable sources as the vulnerability is quite serious in nature. The developer will likely be releasing a patch for this issue within a matter of hours or days.

      Plex announces Arcade game subscription service for $4.99 per month
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Plex announced today a new game subscription service that features a whole library of retro games. The new game streaming called Plex Arcade will cost $4.99 per month.

      Subscribers can play games on iOS, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Windows, macOS, and Android devices. Plex says it plans to add support for more platforms in the future.

      For the new game subscription, Plex has teamed up with Atari whose titles such as Centipede, Lunar Lander, and Motor Psycho, among others, will be available to customers. The company also partnered with Parsec whose technology helps to improve the players' gaming experience by reducing latency.

      To start playing retro games, you will need a Plex Media server version 1.21.2 or newer on Windows or macOS. You also need to connect your Parsec account to your Plex account. Supported controllers include any Bluetooth or USB game controller, although Plex recommends a Sony DualShock 4 or Xbox One controller for best performance.

      Arcade is available starting today and you can sign up here. For Plex Pass subscribers, the service will cost only $2.99 per month. There's also a seven-day free trial if you want to test the game subscription first.

      Cyberpunk 2077 DLC is still listed as coming in 'early 2021' but don't get your hopes up
      by Usama Jawad

      Highly anticipated CD Projekt Red (CDPR) title Cyberpunk 2077 has had a messy launch, to say the least. Following numerous complaints about the game's performance on consoles, it was removed from the PlayStation Store, with full refunds available to both PlayStation and Xbox players. CDPR was also forced to issue a public apology about the state of its AAA title, and vowed to address concerns in 2021.

      Recently, some news outlets have started highlighting that CDPR has published a new webpage which indicates that the company plans to release free DLC in "early 2021". Unfortunately, that's not quite right.

      While the webpage is indeed live and legitimate, it was updated on December 13, as noted by Engadget, using the Internet Archive. This date falls before CDPR's apology on December 14. The webpage was just not picked up by outlets and fans back then.

      Indeed, it would be strange for CDPR to suddenly start advertising new DLC when tens of thousands of people are bemoaning the pitiful state of the game on their respective machines. It is also important to note that the company has promised to release major patches in January and February this year.

      That said, this also does not outright mean that DLC won't arrive in early 2021 at all. It is quite possible for different teams to be working on different portions of the game. Some could be working on optimization and performance tuning while others could be working on DLC. That said, it's probably safe to say that given the current situation, if CDPR does manage to hit its "early 2021" DLC deadline, it's going to be cosmetic DLC such as weapons and skins, or minor quests, rather than full-blown extra story content.

      This would not be too different from the company's previous hit The Witcher 3, for which CDPR released multiple minor DLCs along with two excellent expansion packs in the form of Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. We'll likely learn more in the next few days, but it would be wise to keep expectations in check for now.

      Huawei removes all Tencent games from its app store due to legal dispute
      by Usama Jawad

      Despite being one of the biggest smartphone maker in terms of units being sold globally, Huawei has recently been facing a lot of troubles with its partners. The U.S. government is cracking down on Chinese technology and the UK is following suit as well. Now, the company finds itself in a legal dispute with fellow Chinese firm Tencent.

      Bloomberg reports that Huawei has removed all Tencent games from its app store. The reason for this is apparently a "big change" that Tencent made on December 31, 2020. The notification shown on Huawei's gaming app doesn't go into further details, but the company says that the decision was made after an internal investigation by its legal team, which also claims that Tencent independently concluded that it doesn't want to continue cooperation with Huawei.

      Meanwhile, Tencent stated that:

      Based on the wording, it would appear that an existing agreement between the two parties expired before a new one could be reached. As a result, all Tencent games such as Arena of Valor, Honor of Kings, and PUBG, among many others have been removed from Huawei's app store for the time being. It's unclear if and when a new agreement will be ratified between the two companies.
