    It’s a good chance you’ll get it, but that’s the best way to beat it. Recover and your immune system will recognize it.

    I have been off duty for about two weeks due to a back injury. And I am looking forward to getting back on the road later this week. The road has been calling to me, that's for sure.

    But I have taken some time while I have had it to play Cyberpunk 2077 on PC.

    I'll just say, in my opinion, I think the game is work of art. The game isn't finished, unfortunately, and there's a lot of corporate follies for why that is the case. I feel bad for the developers, producers, and creative minds that poured their soul into this game, only to see a botched release.

    However, that said, my opinion is it's fantastic.

    Leaving the bugs aside, my other complaint about gameplay is I don't like how the enemies are bullet sponges. In the later game the spounginess goes away provided I played my character according to my build. But also my leveling up stopped me from doing missions in certain areas of the map due to not being strong enough. Fine, I guess.

    The storyline is great. My favorite so far is running with the nomads, and I have bought only nomad vehicles.

    That's the "Little Mule" I bought. She's better than any city vehicle.

    My opinion, the voice acting is on point, everyone did a good job so far.

    DONT PLAY IT AROUND CHILDREN. The game is extremely graphic, dark, and it explores all the best and worst humanity can offer. So far I haven't played a game that dropped that many F-bombs.

    Yes, I play female characters. I don't like dressing up men... only reason.

    The game allows to take "selfies." I took a few for interested parties I know in real life. I'll post them here since it's relevant.. maybe a few of you haven't played yet... (no spoilers)

    I finished a side quest, found a corrupt cop in an alley, wont disclose spoilers.. photomode_1101_cop.png

    Man I really wanted to like it but in my opinion it came up well short of a masterpiece. Both my son and I have the game and we probably haven't logged any game time in over a week .

    Just tested positive for Covid so I'm gonna have some home time to put in some more hrs and give it another chance .

    It's not a game for everyone, that's for sure.

    However, if you haven't made it to Johnny Silverhand being in your head then you haven't even really started. So at least get that far before you throw in the towel.

    One thing that put me off initially in the beginning is the enemies are bullet sponges. But fortunately that went away. I hate bullet sponge fighting. I saw my character kind of evolve depending on where I put my points. So that's kind of interesting. But the game does lean more towards telling a story over sophisticated fighting mechanics.

    Since they worked so hard to bring life to the characters in their game, I would like to have seen just a little more individuality emphasized. The romance scenes are pretty much all the same, just with different people.

    Also I was disappointed there is only 1 way to take down an enemy silently. I was hoping for at least a few different animations. But we only got 1 that I've seen so far.
