Just wanted to open this for people who want to have an active dialogue about their ongoing experiences with the game whether it be good or bad. How are you liking or not liking it? What kind of bugs are you experiencing?
If you want to get specific about a mission or event beyond just gameplay talk or discuss the story please use spoiler blocks.
As someone who enjoyed the recent Deus Ex games but found the gameplay and more specifically the shooting to be flat, I am very much enjoying what's going on here. The shooting feels more serviceable and is a step up from the Fallout type of shooting I was initially expecting which is great. That plus I think they layered on the Watchdogs hacking mechanics in smart ways to make a fight or a stealth run feel more dynamic. I don't know how to feel yet about the melee combat. Punching feels flat but the sword stuff feels marginally better.
I'm only a mission or two behind where the GB Quick Look starts so I don't have a fully formed opinion yet on how I feel about the writing other than I know that Jackie is really fucking annoying. Other characters have been great though. As for bugs I haven't seen anything game breaking yet but I was forced to relaunch the game a couple times because the game would just turn off my controller like as if the batteries died. Other times the gas while driving didn't work or the movement sticks were unresponsive. Some of these issues stemmed from me alt-tabbing in and out of game so it's been more stable if I avoid doing that. Other weird stuff has been seeing objects clip, floating guns, and a shooting sequence while driving where my gun never activated.
: For those wondering why the game looks off while moving around, you need to turn off film grain. It's a really bad effect in this game and also turn off chromatic aberration which causes weird warping on some textures. It doesn't hurt either to drop motion blur to low or off unless you really like that sort of stuff.
As if bad console versions weren't enough. Apparently there is a corrupted file bug getting reported where your save may become corrupted if the file size reaches 8mb or more. This could happen after you've been playing for dozens of hours and have collected a load of items. This is the first serious bug that is giving me pause over playing it seriously again.
CDPR hopes to fix it in the coming large patches early next year but says that there will be no fix for a corrupted save file. So make sure you guys are making multiple saves.
CDPR just released another hotfix, 1.06, which fixes the 8MB save file size limit way earlier than expected. This won't fix any saves that have already become corrupted though.
