Cyberpunk 2077 – Night City Stories by RogueGOOSE1

Cyberpunk 2077 has hit next generation consoles and caused quite the buzz on Windows PC. I have ventured many hours in and around Night City and have become very curious as to the lives you don’t necessarily get to dive into with gameplay. This is

the first of many Night City stories. I hope to entertain you with fictional stories of the citizens within the Cyberpunk Universe.

So we begin with our first story.
The story of NCPD Beat Patrol Officer, Bernie Paltrow.

I had been on traffic duty the past 6 months until about a week ago. That is one punishment I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. I was being groomed to get a seat in a black and white. Who knows where I stand with the Cruiser Patrol guys now, but glad to be back on the beat.

My partner reminds me daily where I could end up if I pull another stunt like I did six months ago. I just have to keep my nose clean awhile and all will be forgiven. The Ripperdock down on Brandon said he was hooking me up with the latest Ballistic Coprocessor. Only I got some B4llistic Copossessor knock off “upgrade”.

I didn’t find out about the upgrade mishap until I was working a disturbance in my sector. We stumbled upon some arms dealers trading wares right on the city street. Blocking half the damn street. They were heavily armed. I should have immediately called in the cavalry, but it’s always hit and miss as to whether or not the Patrol Division will show. That, and traffic piling up on the street forced me to make a move quickly.

I rushed over leaving my partner just a bit behind. That was my second mistake.

My third mistake came when I drew my service pistol. The Ballistic Coprocessor I thought I had just had installed should have aided in my swift takedown of this operation going down in my sector. Instead, the B4llistic Copossessor malfunctioned. It took me a bit long to realize I was firing into the city street that I was trying to protect. Husbands, wives, kids -all taking cover from from my mistake. I had no control. The gun just kept blastin.

I felt like the biggest gonk in the city, yet there was more to worry about. Ripperdocks routinely install illegal Cyberware. I am a man of the law. Luckily, only 3 people were killed in the incident. I just didn’t know how to explain this incident. I mean, my illegal software malfunctioned and I killed 3 innocent civilians, AND the bad guys got away. What was I to do?

I was ghost white when Patrol came to my apartment a week later. The lead Patrol Officer informed me that they made it look like the Proles had been blastin at each other, and that I was off the hook. 6 months in traffic would keep me square with the PD.

What a long 6 months it was. Being in traffic that long taught me that crime doesn’t pay. I need not be diving into illegal wares. Perhaps I’ll go full borg after I leave the force, but for now -I can’t slammit on the good citizens of Night City.

The only punishment I got left is Darla giving me shit all day about the incident. She hasn’t forgiven me. She said one of the flatliners remind her of her little sister. Never met the little bimbo so I wouldn’t know.

The beat is where I belong for now. Every shift I get to hear the hum of the city. Sure, crime has gotten way worse. But I wouldn’t trade this life for anything.

The End.

Cyberpunk 2077 First Impression & Gameplay w/ RogueGOOSE1

Cyberpunk 2077 has been out for mere hours, yet RogueGOOSE1 has now played it for several of those hours. Here is my first thoughts of the game, and some gameplay footage to add some flavor to the article. Had a blast playing.

First impression
What does the game remind me of?

Before launch I was anticipating a Grand Theft Auto 5 vibe. I wasn’t entirely incorrect with this assumption, but there was a bit more to it. Cyberpunk 2077’s gameplay hit me with that GTA 5 feel, but also gave me a Borderlands feel. It’s like if Borderlands 3 mated with GTA V.

Why is that? The combat, the loot system, and the overall mechanics feel like Borderlands. Then you throw in the gigantic open-world of a dense city for the GTA vibe.

Did I like it?

Indeed. I thoroughly enjoyed GTA 5 and Borderlands 3. Cyberpunk 2077 almost had me playing a bit of both those games after my CP2077 session because of how much the gameplay reminded me of them. CD Projekt Red does put in some unique vibes though. I highly recommend this game to all audiences.

I am not one for story games. The beginning of the game does kind of guide you in a specific way. I hate linear gameplay. Cyberpunk does this to get you spun up on the various controls, and then let’s you control your destiny from there.

Pros:

  • Feels like GTA 5 had a baby with Borderlands 3
  • Stops holding your hand quickly
  • Beautiful Scenery
  • Interesting Story
  • Open-worldliness

Cons:

  • Blue screened a bit on PS4
  • Game didn’t appear completely finished

For the pros, there is a lot to like about this game. Virtual photographers are going to love the scenery, and I love the roam-ability of the city.

As for the cons; yes, I did bluescreen a number of times. This is always annoying, but common for a newly released game. The game had also been delayed previously as CD Projekt Red subtly admits that it isn’t completely finished. That is evident from the graphics having some issues early on. Nothing to deter me from continuing my adventures in the Night City.

Conclusion

Absolutely love the game so far. I haven’t completed it yet, but do intend to. I hope you are all enjoying it! Let me know on Facebook, Discord, or in the comments here!

  1. John Wick / Keanu Reeves teasers

We all took to Twitter or other social media as soon as CD Projekt teased Keanu Reeves being a significant character in the Cyberpunk 2077 game.

I am not the biggest John Wick fan, but I respect those that are. I am more of a Bill & Ted’s or Speed guy myself. The Matrix trilogy also knows where to slapp from time to time.

Regardless, these pics and teasers sent us absolutely bonkers!

2. The Cars

Customization is one of my top aspects to find in games. How does Cyberpunk hold up to customizations? I’m teased into thinking quite well! The very different cars featured online and throughout the Cyberpunk teased community reminds me of GTA Online.

Sure, Grand Theft Auto Online has become dominated by Deluxo and Oppressor Mk II’s. The amount of customizations among vehicles is ultra rare to find in games. So much so that perhaps no other game has ever done it to the level of Rockstar? Maybe a tad bold, but likely the case.

The cars in Cyberpunk 2077 teasers give me a ton of hype!

3. City Scenery

Open-world gaming is one of the most popular types of gaming these days. I, for one, hate a linear game. I want to explore! Will this game do that for me? We will know tomorrow, but the beautiful open city scenery gives hope!

Virtual photography is also on the rise in the popularity department. Cyberpunk 2077 will quickly jump to the top of social feeds for those seeking Gaming Photos. #VGPUnite

4. Bordering Borderlands-esque Fight Scenes

Am I the only one who thinks some of these fight scenes resemble Borderlands? I’m not hating it as I love the looting and shooting game Borderlands 3. I do not want that to be Cyberpunk 2077, but I do love the art!

This above picture has it all. Custom cars, city scenery, whacky characters, guns, and just looks great!

What’s left? We need at least 5 types of pics from Cyberpunk 2077.

Ahh, yes.

5. Hot Characters!

If John Wick doesn’t quite hit the spot for you, perhaps one of the amazing characters in Cyberpunk 2077 will! Games today wouldn’t be games today if not for the unrealistically stunning characters. Sure there are people that good looking in real life, but not 10 out of 10 people we come into contact with!

Arguments aside, the characters in this game are very well created. Hats off to CD Projekt.

Cyberpunk 2077 Epilepsy Warning! What you need to know – Cyberpunk 2077 release information

Image
pic from @epilepsyaction on Twitter – EpilepsyAction

Cyberpunk 2077 is the most hyped game of the 2020 holiday season. Gamers from all walks of life look to flock the Night City as soon as it releases. We wanted to release an article to warn anyone that may not be familiar with photosensitive epilepsy.

Remember to use caution. Especially if you’re someone whom struggles with epilepsy. I am not a doctor, nor do I know much about epilepsy. I just do not want to turn what should be an amazing gaming experience turn into a bad experience for any gamer.

Supposedly, (according to BBC, MSN, and others following the game’s release), CD Projekt has added; and will continue to add, warnings in-game to warn of the possibility of photosensitive epilepsy.

Does this effect you?

It effects us all as gamers. Many individuals who have experienced epilepsy from bright visuals had never had previous episodes of epilepsy. So just be mindful and tell anyone you know that might play the game.

Again, I don’t know much about this. The game certainly seems brightly colored and very flashy from the trailers. These are features that excite many of us who look to dive head first into Cyberpunk 2077. If they can possibly be harmful, I hope we can all use caution.

I wish you all the best and hope you have a great gaming experience with the release of Cyberpunk 2077. Hop in the countdowns with us and join the discussions. Links:

Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer? What we know about Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer so far. Cyberpunk 2077 Release

Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer? What we know about Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer so far. Cyberpunk 2077 Release

Will you be playing Cyberpunk 2077? Will you be playing at release or will you wait?

Either method you chose, you won’t be able to get a taste of multiplayer for quite some time. When exactly?

The release of the Cyberpunk 2077 base game is set for December 10, 2020. The multiplayer on the other hand… is quite a while a way.

We can only speculate when CD Projekt will deliver the supposed “standalone” multiplayer version of the game. The word on the street is that CD Projekt has brought in AAA multiplayer gaming gurus from Digital Scapes Studios to aid in delivering the finished Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer product. This could be a good thing, but what does that mean? Current speculation in the gaming community tells us to think GTA Online when trying to picture the multiplayer variety of Cyberpunk 2077. Should we though? What other options are out there? Multiplayer cooperative play? Digital Scapes studios had a hand in creating the multiplayer for Dying Light. Which was a cooperative play rather than a more sand box style like GTA Online. Would this make sense?

The game Cyberpunk 2077 seems a bit more like GTA Online in what we have seen so far. I would much more prefer the GTA Online style of game versus a Dying Light type of experience. I did enjoy Dying Light, but Cyberpunk just seems more apt to have a bunch of other real players flocking the city trying to kill you. GTA 5 made it across 3 generations of consoles having come out just before the release of Playstation 4 and XboxOne. Cyberpunk 2077 is positioned to do the same.

So what are the pros and cons to a GTA Online style of play for Cyberpunk 2077?

CON – GTA Online is known for its microtransactions (Shark Cards). Shark cards made the game lean toward pay-2-win. Especially in the earlier days. Now, of course, you can make plenty of GTA$ just by logging in during events which allows you to buy end game toys like the Oppressor Mk II.

PRO – GTA Online tries to create a sandbox style of multiplayer. Rockstar does this primarily by pitting specific numbers of players into a world (server) together. Which would be very difficult in a Co-op type of a multiplayer. This can only truly be done on a more MMO basis. This also means that this style of game will create large scale group events which I love.

There aren’t many more pros / cons. This is just speculation but each alternative is merely up to the players preferences as to what style they like more. I prefer the MMO type experience so this would be perfect for me. Even the microtransactions are made better by making it larger scale multiplayer. This is only because it makes it easier for you to show off your toys, like we all do in GTA Online.

I am severely looking forward to the game’s release on 10 Dec. 2020. Come join me:

Cyberpunk 2077 releasing soon! What is the most hyped game coming this holiday season? Cyberpunk 2077

From the Creators of the 2015 Game of the Year, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, comes Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt is poised to put out another great game for us RPG enthusiasts to enjoy.

The Witcher 3 is wildly known as one of the best games ever made and Cyberpunk has already became the most hyped game of Next Generation consoles.

So what makes the game so hype-able?

It looks so damn good! The success of the Witcher series from CD Projekt gives us a lot of reason to get hyped for their next game. The developers have also released some great content and even rolled out some red carpet for us to continue the hype train. Keanu Reeves is one of the hottest actors out right now. He has been featured among some hugely popular game titles like: PayDay 2, Fortnite, Apex, and now Cyberpunk. I’m sure I am missing one, but the point remains. These major games were able to build on Keanu Reeves growing gaming fame, and Cyberpunk will be no exception.

Cyberpunk has already missed one release date. It does seem very likely that it will make the next one.

Cyberpunk 2077 Release date:

December 10, 2020

You will be able to download and play Cyberpunk 2077 on December 10th, 2020. This is the most hyped (maybe only hyped) game of the 2020 holiday season.

Other details of Cyberpunk 2077:

Developer: CD Projekt
Genres: First-person Shooter · RPG · Action
ESRB rating: Mature
Platforms: Microsoft Windows · PlayStation 4 · Xbox One · PlayStation 5 · Xbox Series X and Series S · Google Stadia

Nintendo Switch

Only Nintendo seems to be out of the loop this go round for CD Projekt’s most hyped game of the 2020 holiday season. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released on Nintendo Switch, so perhaps Cyberpunk 2077 will come later for the Switch? Several gaming news outlets have speculated that a later release for the Nintendo Switch is possible. I don’t think I can get on that train. The game seems to be purposefully shying away from Nintendo, as many other developers are doing the same.

Ark: Survival Evolved Rating – Rating Survival Games – RogueGOOSE1 Rates Survival Games

Ark: Survival Evolved is a survival game that is rated Teen by ESRB ratings. How will this survival game rate with RogueGOOSE1? We will take a deep dive into the games features and make a well informed rating for you!

I enjoy survival games, and especially those with multiplayer elements. Whether that’s in a cooperative capacity or an mmo style. Survival games typically feature food & water consumption, resource management, sometimes building & crafting, and other survival mechanics that we all love. Ark has some very unique features which other games have tried to replicate. Ark is a tad older than some of the titles we are going to rate, but it still has a die hard player base.

Today’s featured game is:

Ark: Survival Evolved

This game can play as a true survival or as a more forgiving survival game. Team up with friends in a world as you try to figure out why you woke up there in the first place. Tame, train, and breed creatures of the dinosaur kingdom and even some fantasy worlds to aid you in your survival. I have a ton of hours in this game and love what it tries to accomplish.

Some of the intriguing features of survival games is displayed above. There is more that goes into creating a good survival game which may be discussed in the Creativity section.

There are so many things that go into ranking a survival game. Most survival games have their own spin on the game itself, but have many similar elements. Ark: Survival Evolved has changed some over the years since its release. We are focusing on what the game is in its current state. Survival games will be able to earn 10 points per aspect plus 30 points can come solely from creativity. For a total possible score of 100. So let’s break down Ark: Survival Evolved.

Resource management

Resource management in Ark has many differences between maps and modes. Primitive Plus requires you to manage your resources more so than normal mode. There are also different maps which sometimes require different resources than others. Stockpiling in this game is almost mandatory as different resources are more common in varying areas. Resource collection is also enhanced by the creatures you tame, which builds on the total game experience. This aspect is beautifully done.

Points: 10

Crafting & Building

Crafting and building in this game is simply like no other game on console. There are many like it on PC, but this is nice for console players. Games like Rust come to mind on PC. Ark has a wonderful crafting system that is the games bread and butter. Many players spend hundreds of hours enjoying crafting and building in Ark. It again receives high marks here. More customization would be nice.

Points: 9

Survivability

Survivability in this game is largely dependent on the player. I have noticed that many players find cave diving too difficult to even attempt. The Labyrinth has claimed its share of players gear as they couldn’t retrieve their belongings after death. A player who shies from PvP and adventure outside of there base location will find the game incredibly easy. Some locations are more difficult than others. This difficulty gears toward several gamer types, so I appreciate that.

Points: 10

Gameplay

Graphics in this game could be better. They are not terrible though on any platform. Compared to other games like Ark? Great. Game mechanics are slightly above average compared to a lot of survival games. Simply, decent.

Points: 7

Story

Ark actually does have a ton of lore. There are no true quests or even a story mode in the game. You can piece together how the world works and how you fit into it. This is such a small aspect of the game that many players don’t bother with it.

Points: 6

See the source image
Ark: Survival Evolved Rating – Rating Survival Games – RogueGOOSE1 Rates Survival Games

Open worldliness

This game can easily define “pick a direction and go”. Thereare a variety of maps with a variety of biomes. Sometimes biomes within biomes. I absolutely love what they have done with the maps. You can even gear up and adventure seemingly other worlds at a moments notice if you feel up for it. There are loading screens between worlds, but the game does a great job making it feel like it is apart of the story by making you use a Teleporter to get to other lands.

Points: 9

PvE versus PvP

Strangely enough, this game was an introduction to PvP for a ton of console gamers. The PvP has become more Tower Defense feeling than it was in the beginning. Players tend to want to be PvE OR PvP, but everyone is sort of out for themselves. This creates a bad dynamic for many servers. If you find the server for you – it can be a great experience. Thanks to Nitrado. This game offers many player hosted servers to fit your PvE versus PvP needs. I do simply love that your tamed creatures play a central role either way.

PvE: 8 – PvP: 8 – Overall: 8

Creativity

This is a very creative game worthy of a healthy distribution of points here. Other games have attempted to play off of what Ark has accomplished, but changed just enough to keep Ark very unique. Do you love survival games? Play Ark. Need and intro to MMORPG’s? Play Ark. Like crafting / building? Play Ark. This game is definitely worthy of 1000 hours. It isn’t uncommon to have thousands of hours worth of work destroyed in a matter of minutes; however, rebuilding is a part of the fun! The primary knock on the game is that it has certainly been made better with the most recent updates like Ark: Genesis, but the community has gotten ill. The mass exodus that every MMO experiences happened to Ark before the newest changes. The DLC’s did bring back and create new players, but they are much less interested in the grind part of this grindy game.

Points: 26

Ark: Survival Evolved Rating – Rating Survival Games – RogueGOOSE1 Rates Survival Games
Conclusion – Points 85 / 100

85 out of 100 seems fair. This is a great game. I attempt to be fair and objective when it comes to these ratings. The game’s only true fault is it’s age and it’s current community. If it was in it’s current state 2 years ago, it would be pushing 100 I think. But that is not the world we live in. The fact that it is on multiple platforms is great, it can be a true survival, and it is vast – open enough to enhance hours of exploration. It is still a great game.

Fallout 76 is a survival game, but it truly sells as an mmorpg. The survival elements were more present at release, but have slowly faded to the shadow of the MMO aspects. Bethesda seems to want to feature aesthetic customizations to promote micro-transactions which is more in line with it’s multiplayer concept. It is still a survival game, and deserving of a rating from RogueGOOSE1.

Concepts of Survival games – Fallout 76 Rating – Rating Survival Games – RogueGOOSE1 Rates Survival Games


There are so many things that go into ranking a survival game. Most survival games have their own spin on the game itself, but have many similar elements. Fallout 76 has chosen to shy away from hardcore survival aspects. Instead, this survival game chose to focus on multiplayer concepts. I see that it is in an attempt to boost microtransactions, but it is a great experience nonetheless. Survival games will be able to earn 10 points per aspect plus 30 points can come solely from creativity. For a total possible score of 100. So let’s break down Fallout 76.

Resource management

In the beginning (especially the B.E.T.A.), resource management was an absolute chore. You had a 400 pound stash box limit which didn’t allow you to keep much. Now, you can access infinite junk storage with a paid subscription, and even the free options have improved tremendously. There are perks which help manage you storage as well. The game does a great job of forcing you to manage your resources, but it isn’t a game breaking procedure. It is overall a joy to stockpile in Fallout 76.

Points: 8

Crafting & Building

Fallout 4 reinvented the Fallout series. Settlement building and the crafting system itself was a major advancement in the series, and this aspect became very popular among new and returning players. Bethesda seemed to want to mix the building aspects of Fallout 4 with the survival title they originally thought they were building by adding, C.A.M.P.’s. They somewhat took the lesser aspects of both and made something decent. I am happy that crafting and building is a large part of the game. The latest updates have improved the experience as well.

Points: 9

Survivability

Survivability in Fallout is a piece of cake. There is no true difficulty modifier, and once you acquire some gear -you’re virtually indestructible. There are level based zones which make the game feel tougher, and some events that are very challenging.

Points: 7

Gameplay

Graphics and combat mechanics are above average on all platforms. The game can get old for explorers who stop exploring. This is true for many survival games, and especially true for MMO’s. Having a crew to run around with completely changes the experience too. This game is a ton of fun with mates, and there is a ton of content.

Points: 9

Story

The Fallout Universe is extremely vast. Fallout 76 takes place in a post-apocalyptic West Virginia just a couple of decades after life as we knew it ended. A nuclear war ravaged the majority of the Earth and set in motion a series of amazing games. There is simply too much lore for lore nerds to dive into with this game. They even add in local West Virginia folklore with such creatures as the Mothman, Wendigo, and Flatwoods Monster. Downside is that the game took a l

Wendigo – Fallout 76 Rating – Rating Survival Games – RogueGOOSE1 Rates Survival Games

ot of grief out of the box. Bethesda has been attempting to take what they built, and turn it into what players wanted. They didn’t want to add much story originally it seemed, but more has been added.

Points: 8

Open worldliness

First knock right out the gate is fast traveling capabilities. Survival games miss something special with enabling fast travel. It can be quite expensive to fast travel in the game, but survival is much easier when fast travel is a thing. So this lessens the difficulty a bit. I would prefer a game to create mounts or vehicles that facilitate travel rather than implement a fast travel system. The world itself is large, diverse, and beautiful.

Points: 7

PvE versus PvP

Many players pretend that Fallout 76 is a PvP game. It has the ability to fight other players, but this game is not a PvP game. It has a “Nuclear Winter” battle royale game mode which is a fine alternative to PvP, but it is almost completely separate from the base game. The base game has no intention of looking like a PvP experience. It is quite an amazing PvE experience though!

PvE: 10 – PvP: 4 – Overall (we’ll round up): 7

Creativity

This game loses a bit of creativity points right off the bat for completely bailing on what it was trying to become originally. It has added, removed, and replaced more concepts than any game I have seen. Overall it is an excellent game with tons to do; however, much better with friends to play with. The world is so beautiful too that we will be a tad more generous with the rankings. The co-op play helps too! Also one of the best games to show your personality in your C.A.M.P. and personal gear.

Points: 25

Conclusion – Points 80 / 100

80 out of 100 seems fair. This is a great game. I attempt to be fair and objective when it comes to these ratings. This is not a true survival game but it is so beautifully done and maintains enough of those aspects to keep my interest. I am a huge fan of the Fallout series. I was expecting something entirely different with Fallout 76. It is still a great game. Whether you love it or hate it let us know on our channels: https://facebook.com/Gunnergoosegaming
