  1. 4 months later, with patch 1.21, I have finally finished Cyberpunk 2077, with small periods when I tried the patch of the day to see if they had solved my particular crash. It is infuriating, because you can see the tons of work, the potential, the sparks of glory, and it is surrounded by unbreakable railroads, countless bugs and performance problems, and missing opportunities that were well established in other games ten years ago. It is the excellent writing in some side missions and the great atmosphere you get at times what makes it worse when it fails. I tried all

  3. Reading a lot of novels in April, so far, less shorts than in some months.

This is going to read really weird. Sure, I personally own Capcom OTC stock (here in the US), because I bought it back when you actually were allowed to.

  5. Yes, there is a similar vibe, but with a clear feeling of hurry that is not present in the Witcher 3. At first I felt it had a resemblance to Sleeping Dogs, that I liked a lot, but here what is missing is a faction and reputation system, as it was missing in the Witcher 3. I have been hitting a lot the Tyger Claws, but they are still civil to me and offer also gigs. I had a fatal crash two thirds into the game (after the Oda fight). It is a reported but apparently rare event, so I doubt it will be patched soon. Even backtracking a couple of hours did not help, so I started a new ch
