>>6689>Everything I've read shows that the game is about getting yours and fuck everyone else.
Played for an hour or two and I kinda get this vibe as well. MC feels like an idiot akin to the "cool future" meme, seeing fucked up shit, coming from a fucked up background but still keeping this retarded Avengers tier quipy spunky atitude about becoming a bigshot.
Now, from what I saw from the trailers, I think the MC gets absolutely fucked at some point. And, if I had trust in the devs (which I don't really do due to the "we be apolitical" shit), I'd guess that this event would change that attitude, or at least open up character paths other than "grr I revange" / "welp Imma grind back to the top".
Also, the setting it self deffinetly seems anti-capitalist, or at the very least anti-corporate, which in all honesty is the same struggle. However I also kinda fear that the wider point of the setting isn't even about corporations being bad, and that its just a staple they took because its the trope of the setting, but that instead it will just be one big loveletter about how cool and epic transhumanism is. And in that case, bravo CDPR, you just recreated a shittier version of Deus Ex Human Revolution.
Oh and the combat feels dogshit. Just why the fuck did they add RPG combat system to a setting with guns? I remember that Sseth quote about FO4 being "like Witcher… with guns, or Skyrim… with gameplay" and in all honesty this fits even more perfectly for CP. When you pick Hard and it takes like 5-8 direct double-barrel shotty rounds to the head to kill a grunt, its really not a good look. I think even Bioshock Infinate, which was panned for being bulletsponge on high difficulties, wasn't this bad. And to tie back in to the new Deus Exes, how come those can have good RPG-like combat systems in cyberpunk esque setting, but CP can't?>>6693
Saw just before hitting reply. Yea, setting absolutely feels anti-capitalist, but as I say in this post, I feel as if that is all just capitalist realism about which you won't be able to do fuck all, and neither will your MC cares about it.
To add a few notes of anti-cap shit I found:>Bilboard comercial for "Real Clean Speed">Log talking about 2020's terrorism and explaining that it was because the capitalist dream of freedom and of choice became a clear lie>Corporate rent-a-cops playing kingpins over dying hinterland desert towns
