    After TR I thought I would play Rise of the Tomb Raider but odd that my 360 doesn't read the game anymore and I get "open tray' as if no disc in in the machine, the disc is in perfect nick.

    I was looking at my Xbox 360 download history and it has the Dragon's Dogma demo (which I deleted ages ago) and could download again so did and after starting the original first Dragon's Dogma disc I got 10,000 RC. Later will switch to Dark Arisen after completing original. I've always play my Arisen as a female assassin with a female mage Pawn, this time stick with the male Savan like fighter and Pawn will be a Strider. I'll use no magic or spell books or other Pawns that use such.

    I haven't watched the Netflix Dragon's Dogma anime TV series, the anime deviates from the game by naming and theming each of the seven episodes after a specific deadly sin. Have named my Arisen Ethan and Pawn Hannah after the main characters of the series.

    I like RPG games but they tend to focus a lot on killing, remembered why I like the Tomb Raider series over the years was more about adventure. So re-started Tomb Raider 2013

    I was embarrassed to mention it, but I'm wasting a lot of time playing Cell to Singularity. My little sister doesn't get what I see in it and I can't disagree.

    Thankfully we've since taken drastic measures to ensure neither came to pass.
    While that is true (and commendable) we sadly slide right into the societal trappings of a cyberpunk setting (nah, who am I kidding, we're practically living in a more-or-less softer cyberpunk world already. We just don't have the cool gimmicks).

Then you have the Deus Ex series, which was also very dark. Cyberpunk is a very grim and desolate genre, so the sun somehow seems too bright, I guess

How can there be a sun in a cyberpunk setting!) and all that jazz. Or maybe my perception of the game is a bit biased, I was very active on /v/ back then.
    On the other hand, I never really warmed up to the Witcher franchise and don't think much of CDProjekt. But maybe for such a project as Cyberpunk it would have been better if they'd followed Bethesda's route (announcing a game, or showing footage from the nearly done game only a few months prior to release. I hope they'll do the same again with Starfield)
    I always kinda assumed we never see the sun in Cyberpunk settings because everyone has such long working hours they only get out in the dark.

    But I'm pretty sure the original tabletop has stuff in the rulebook about the sun, maybe they simply followed that guideline.

    I recommend Jim Sterling's coverage. He is mean, but he also doesn't sugarcoat (and he doesn't judge people who buy the games anyway).

    I think a lot of people have conflicted feelings about Cyberpunk right now because on the one hand there's all the hype, but on the other hand it was recently revealed how horribly CDPR treat their employees.

    I hear the trust from both of you. I trust CDPR to deliver Cyberpunk 2077 in tip top shape.

    Christina Duke maybe look into Wine or, even better, PlayOnMac. It's an emulator (well, not really, but who cares) that enables you to use Windows software (or play Windows games) on MacOS. The Witcher is in the list of supported games, so you should get it to run without (much) problems.

    With Spiderweb Software you never need trust because they have an extensive demo for every single one of their games anyway. And I mean extensive. By the time you're done with the demo you already know whether you like the game. In fact if you don't like the game, then you won't be able to finish the demo, that's how long they are.

    Spiderweb Software is awesome! Been playing their stuff since 1995! Love their games, and the idea of a big huge demo!

    Iam very, very excited for the early access of Baldurs Gate 3. I know: "don't preorder or buy early acess" but Larian Studios earned my trust with DOS & DOS2.
