kill-chan Posted January 1, 2021 Report Share Posted January 1, 2021 (edited) Look , I already know that the usual suspects will come out and say that he played it wrong, his build made no sense, he didn't pick hard which the game itself described as the ideal mode to really put the build to the test, he didn't even try to adopt a playstyle... but here's the thing: they'd be right :D Spoiler Yes, the game has non-lethal instant takedowns from above, and you can unlock a perk that slows-down time when you're about to get spotted so that you can go hide more efficiently, but also increase damage in order to compensate for the damage decrease introduced by suppressors. But let's say you don't want to play Metal Gear Solid first person, you can slow down time at will a-la Max Payne if you spend points on the Reflexes talent and buy a specific cyberware mod. And if you're into quickhacking you can greatly increase the number of quickhacks you can equip and use before you run out of ram , their effects, their restoration times and upload speed... and the combination of those factor will allow you to come up with interesting stuff, like bind that melee guy that's running towards you, blind that sniper, set that shotgunner on fire, put that netrunner to sleep etc... So, even if you completely botch the character creation at the intro, you'd think that someone who played enough RPGs would know that just because the game doesn't have classes, doesn't mean you can't forge one on your own. The "you don't need it" argument is , especially in a game where the player's playstyle is what determines the fun factor, not the encounters. Just because the game gives you the freedom to do it right, you shouldn't expect it to stop you when you do it wrong. Also , you just spent points looking at the immediatly accessible perks treating them like individual quality of life improvements, instead of looking at each talent tree as a whole without giving it a chance to prove its potential... or maybe you were afraid of missing out on perks because there's so many stuff of them, I don't know. I'm afraid that in 40h you barely scratched the surface Edited January 1, 2021 by kill-chan typo 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
