We're all going to experience changes in our life but only the best of us will qualify for front row seats.



That's a trailer that is really catering to people who have played and finished the game. Really going for the double dip consumers.

But nothing wrong with some Woodkid.

Yeah that trailer is a good one.

But the most pressing question about the DSDC trailer is answered by the man himself

Maybe the sacrifice is just not pissing and making your bladder burst? Suddenly I'm wondering why there isn't a catheter item to let you carry extra urine around and mix with blood. Sam 'Pissbags' Bridges.

Pretty sure the condition to get blood pee grenades is letting your max stamina drop at least to half. This only happens if you never rest and just keep going.

You'll need to launch the ps4 client and use it to export your save so you can download it on the ps5 version.

Might also be to do with the bloody feet? Not wearing shoes was one thing I have never tried after about 90 hours.

If you die a bunch it happens. Throw yourself off a cliff or shoot a grenade at your feet and respawn.

Typing that out made me reminded me that I always wondered if Heartman would have a different voice clip if you died more time than he did, but the game is encrypted apparently. It would take years like that MGSV event

I've always wondered if it's possible to get his 5 stars before the endgame. Would have shaved off quite some time If I had printed and stashed a bunch of lvl 5 assault rifles somewhere.
If you haven't already I highly recommend maxing Peter's level before the endgame prompt if it's possible.



Anyone else get to the postgame, change the color of your outfit, do a few deliveries, mess about with the game and its mechanics for a few hours then never touch it again? I think if they're trying to get people to double dip with the Director's Cut they should add more incentive to play the postgame. There are too many reasons why, at least a standard, Newgame+ option wouldn't be appealing.

Also what's this about zip-lines and floaters?

I did that! You get an email going, "hey Sam this is who I am, please enjoy my bunker and my data, here's five stars for being a good boy", you can go into the bunker, and you get all the schematics and whatnot. I don't remember if you get a star or not.

I finally put Cyberpunk to bed because there's nothing left with the combat for me, and picked this up.

I'm, like, oddly enraptured by the simple idea of "Take boxes to places". Barely started the poo poo with the preppers but just hiking places is a real nice way to destress.

Find the musician on the first map and do a couple missions for him, you get a great item.

Wondering if and how much the online components are segregated based on game progress and your player's rank.

Can my post-game Sam help out another player who's just started playing the game? And how much so?

Unlike rain, snow doesn't make a sound, so sleighbells get to be the cue for timefall in snowy areas, I'm pretty sure. No Santa, sadly.

Only game I know of even trying to do DS traversal is some indie mountain climbing game coming out. Trailer didn't capture me though. It's cel shaded and cartoony whereas I feel you really need realistic graphics to capture every exhausting step. Kojima really got that right.

Just did a quick 1-hour delivery to check out the DC. Seems like there are a lot of little quality of life changes, though I've not played the game in months now so I might be wrong about a few. I feel like some elements are now automated and things are quicker to access, plus you can move the 3D map with the right stick now too instead of twisting your arms with the gyro to see topography. I didn't encounter any MULEs to try out the new combat but the moves are hilarious, the body slam especially.

60fps is super nice and loading times are nuts, down to like 3 seconds from what, a minute and a half? If you import your PS4 save, you also get all your trophies again which is fun.
