I'm just using the rewards points to stack 3 months GPU cards. I don't care much for buying games with GPU and a considerable backlog. Seems like  the cheapass way to go.

Only 120 points left and I got that 10K challenge done. Also if any of you got a few stragglers left, WWE 2K Battlegrounds is free to play weekend and I got 400 or so achievements in that in 30 minutes. Could get more, but eh, ehhhh.

 

Hey, if you havent done it yet, I grabbed 150G in less than 10 mins with Full Throttle Remaster on GP. Small file size too.

Never said there was anything wrong with being broke. I've been there a few times in my adult life.

 

Well, get off your high horse then mr "adult".

How long did that take?  I played for a handful of hours and didn't get a single achievement.

 

Really? It took me maybe 4-5 hours max to 100% that game and only needed a map for the last achievement or so. You should be unlocking many achievements by now.

Thanks all, I appreciate the help. I'll check some of those out.

 

I'd already done Touryst, Korgan and Hyperdot and second the recommendation for those.

 

NHL 94 I've been eyeing cuz of the 50G+ cheevos but it felt pretty tough to score when I tried it, even though I used to own it on snes and played the hell out of it. But yeah.. 27 years ago.

 

I read somewhere that Full Throttle is quickly done. Anyone try it?

a lot of people recommend carrion (good game) but in my experience I barely got anything at all for a decent amount of play time and it gives an odd number achievement I think I got a total of 17 points from it

 

If you stick with it you'll see it's a short game and a fairly easy 1000G. Just might need a little backtracking at the end with an online map.

 

I just got over the 100 000G mark today while doing cheevos, yay! i want a cookie.

Been playing Superhot Mind Control Delete and it's really generous early on for cheevos. I got a bunch of 80 G's less than an hour in, and a 100G just for starting. It's a good game too. Unless you disliked the first one.

Games with high reward/short completion which I've done and would recommend to anyone going for the 10k achievements:

 

Wandersong

Edith Finch

Gone Home

Tracks

ARK (w/ console commands)

PixARK (same)

Old Man's Journey

Pneuma

Gardens Between

Tacoma

Fractured Minds

Carrion

Minit

 

I got them mostly through GWG or GP, though some might not be on GP anymore.

Man that ACG Cyberpunk review was brutal ... I have an unopened copy sitting on my shelf and really wanted to play it on Christmas, but thinking maybe I should just shelve it for a few months.

 

I'm playing everyday and really enjoying it, but waiting a few months will make your experience much better. Especially if you think you'll probably just play through once.

 

They've been hotfixing bugs and announced two bigger patches in January and February. I can already see a difference in stability on One S, so i'm anxious to get those bigger patches. Even though, the game is far from "unplayable". It does need to be optimized, and looks like it suffers memory leaks.

I've played over 80 hours of Cyberpunk on One S, my 2 cents in few words:

 

The open world design is incredible, story is intense an characters are interesting. These are probably the best i've ever seen in a videogame. The gameplay is fun, especially once you level up a little and get some augments, you get pretty good at moving, shooting and hacking.

 

My biggest complaint is how the city is not very interactive, it's awesome to look at, but the poor NPC AI and very few open world interactions are unimmersive. On the technical side, it's the huge frame rate drops when in vehicles in the denser parts of the city and the occasional game crashes. (I still feel the game is not as buggy as Fallout or Skyrim, even way past launch)

I haven't had many graphic bugs, but the car physics, with crashing and stuff, are rough around the edges.

 

Overall, it looks like a potentially great game in beta stage. I'm having fun with it, but like I said here before release, anyone on the fence should probably wait 6 months.

 

 

Edit: Oh, and forgot to mention, the music in this game is multiple eargasm!

Anyone know if gangs attack you less if you choose Street Kid life path? I went Corpo and I keep running into the Yakuza knockoff gang and unless I run past them, they shoot on sight. It wouldn't be so bad if they weren't all over the place. 

 

I'm on the Nomad lifepath 7-8 hours in and no one attacks me in freeroaming unless I intitiate or i'm trespassing.

 

And I guess I'm really lucky cuz I'm not having a buggy experience at all on last gen (One S).

I've played 5 hours or so of Cyberpunk an I'm pleasantly surprised how it holds up on my One S. I've had no glitches apart from a floating random character. The crowd density is surprisingly high too. 

Overall impression is that it's very much an open world Deus Ex on supersteroids with excellent writing and mature storytelling.

If you're hesitating on getting Cyberpunk 2077, i'd wait for 6 months. Time for them to get many bugs sorted out and free dlc to release. With such an atmospheric setting, your experience can just be better from it. And you can read up on the lore meanwhile, that'll also make your experience better as there's a lot of fanservice (I'd recommend the Cyberpunk 2020 or Cyberpunk Red rulebook, Night City sourcebook and Home of the Brave). 

 

As for me, I'm a huge fan of the IP. No way I could wait any longer even if it's as buggy as a Bethesda RPG and melts my One S.

Kinda funny how people talk as if Cyberpunk, the game I used to play with a bunch of nerds in highschool 30 years ago, is the new flagship of edgelordism..

I've been able to see all the Cyberpunk leaks so far, and yes there are hickups, normal to any prepatched game of this magnitude. But the game looks fucking amazing, especially on new gen with lighting.

 

I know a lot of people are thinking this is GTA 2077, and some of that is on CDPR's marketing, but what you're getting into is a full fledged RPG. It's much more like Deus Ex meets the Witcher 3. You ain't gonna be grabbing the car on the side of the street and shoot cops for an hour, you'll be developing deep plots and relationships with characters. And the world has a shit ton of lore already.
