But how about naked t-posing while driving? Is that still a thing?

Well, sometimes your avatar is wearing a shirt but it is always pantless... So, it is still there.

Blueprints vanishing from the shops bug is still there, NPC cars driving into certain barriers is still there, your avatar floating instead of walking/running is still there... So if someone is waiting for patch that fixes most issues, they need to wait longer.

@charlie_victor_bravo: Cyberpunk has always been explicitly sexual in this way. It's very much rooted in the source material, though it's less in your face in text than in video game form.

I disagree that the game's world is not misogynist. It's exploitative in every way. It chews people up and uses them. The fact that there are powerful women doesn't mean there's no misogyny because powerful women can be misogynist like anyone else.

Plus you're only seeing V.'s particular world and friends. You can't judge how misogynist a society is just by the people one person happens to come in contact with.

I don't know about the sexual aspect because I am familiar only with the translated stuff and looking at the english source book that comes with the game, the images are more pin up like then what I remember (either forgot about those or my country got censored version), so you might be right about the sexual roots of the material...

However problem is what the game shows and tells you and there is disconnect there.

I hate the porny ads and the hundreds of sex shops because they don't fit to the game world. You really can't have dirty sex and the game world is far from misogynist in practice for those ads to make sense. Like sure, there are some rapey things that activated enemies yell, but most power figures in the game are women. You like kill hundreds of people without anyone blinking an eye, shouldn't those adds be about guns and violence?

I also think that a lot of choices and decisions were clearly ripped out of this game (look at the mission "The Pickup" and the fact that there are exactly 0 other missions with that degree of freedom in the rest of the game) so what's left might just be cobbled together.

One of the weirdest things was that one mission with the mayor candidate. At the end of it some one hacks you, makes you blind and tells you to drop to whole thing. It is clear that there should be some consequences going against their will but there are none. Not even a text message that says "u f'd it up". It is something that was clearly cut from the game.

@efesell:

My character can only take one hit and next is a knock out (lvl 40 - body 12 - legendary gorilla arms). Opponents take about 50 - 100 charged punches. Only way I have managed to win some of the is by throwing legendary baseball bat into the ring and picking that up once the match starts. Still, opponents take something like 30+ hits. As a comparison normal enemies take like one or two weak blows from that bat. The final opponent seems impossible because the ring is too small to jump avoid the hits and blocking does nothing.

There is one mission where you deliver a guy to place (the one who is The Office reference). Quest giver at the end gives usual speech but the final line is clearly not the voice actor's. It is like some place holder line.

Speaking of weird lines. One entire cutscene switched the my characters female voice to male, it was kind of confusing.

Minor spoilers:

Loading Video...

The bug is still there with 1.05 patch.

(Side note: capturing half frame rate from variable fresh rate monitor and running RTX results in kind of choppy video...)

Found this guy on default "crime in progress" mini mission. Problem is, that I blew his head to pieces 8 hours earlier on a story mission... Even the scanner says it is the same guy.

I don't know. Game has really big base problems with how it balances some systems and with basic GUI design (among other things). Like the map and journal are both a mess. Also these two are not linked in a way that would make sense.

Map is the worst. It is extremely hard to find something specific on it. How city layout is presented just sucks - often something is blocking the view of the roads. There is no kind of color differentiation between areas. There too few icons to separate different kinds of missions from each other (and no color coding). The map wont even show names of the jobs or shops. It just says "clothing store" or "side job" and some generic text. Like WTF?!
