Jesus, I didn't expect to meet the recommended for this.  Kind of torn now if I should get it for console or PC

Given what I've seen w/ vid's and read - get it on PC if you have high-end hardware (i.e. higher-end 2000 or 3000 cards); or a higher-end next-gen consoles (i.e. PS5 or X Box Series X).

And...good luck getting hands of any of those right now, unfortunately.

This game's super-demanding - go see Steam and GOG threads complaining about PC performance on 1080 Ti's. Sounds like this game's best off on 2070's, 2080's, 3070's, 3080's, and 3090's.

Pretty impressive. It'll be nice if they can get the bugs ironed out. It's weird it got delayed a few times and is still this obviously buggy.
B/c this game's a seamless open-world game w/ NPC's everywhere doing stuff; cutting edge & demanding (RTX stuff); has tons going on; etc etc.

It's CDPR; give it 6 months to a year, they'll knock most of the issues out by then. Just like Witcher 1,2,3.

Cyberpunk 2077 Reviews are out.

They're ranging from good to great, for the most part.
Seems that...the game's still quite a bit buggy and ain't the best technical performer either.

Some of the most middling. mixed, and "meh" reviews, aren't scored - i.e. see Kotaku and Polygon.

OpenCritic = 91 (of 100) - https://opencritic.com/game/8525/cyberpunk-2077
Metacritic = 91 (of 100) - https://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/cyberpunk-2077?ref=hp

I downloaded this once and never played it. We were talking about it the other day and how some folks just avoided playing it in Witcher 3, but I loved it there, and it got me started back on my Witcher 3 play through (130+ hours and counting ... I'm playing on Death March), and I decided to try Gwent in its standalone format.

I didn't realize some of the differences they made to it, like only 2 rows per side instead of 3, but it's a great game and I really enjoy it. Nice to see that despite being F2P, you can actually earn a lot of rewards just by playing, doesn't feel like the kind of thing you're forced to buy tons of stuff for.

Then I learned that Thronebreaker was actually originally planned to be a single-player component of Gwent, which I didn't realize, I thought it was just a sort of card RPG thing. But I guess they put so much in they decided to make it its own standalone product. I've played a bunch of that now as well and it's really been a lot of fun too.

Man, I really need to finish this. I got stuck on a boss for a sec, then beat it, but then ran into a bunch of dumb shit and a bug and a challenge I hurled myself at a few times but couldn't beat ... and I just didn't want to play it anymore. Now I've been in the mood for more RPG stuff, so I'll have to wait until the mood strikes again, I guess. I really want to finish it, I love so much of the bonkers stuff they did.
