I'm wondering if the hacker 'noghead' in the #cyberpunk #game The Ascent, was voiced to sound like Cory Doctorow deliberately.. Because if it was, it's a genius move. Instantly wins your characters trust.. and admiration. You're gonna need nogheads help as you infiltrate the happenings with The Ascent Group and your dealings with yCorp. Better cyberpunk Gaming than 2077 IMHO.
@ChrisWere You might want to watch this deep dive into Deus Ex Human Revolution & its comparison with the original... if you have like 3 & a half hours to spare.
It's about killing off the 'royals' by placing "program" cards into the "matrix" and causing an code "overload" to frazzle the royal.
Placement is everything!
If you can't place your programs in the matrix, then it becomes an ICE card enhancing the royals health - making it harder for you to win.
There's some interesting takes on #cyberpunk here:
The stealth mechanic isn't tediously slow, its pacey and you can get into a good rhythm - but it does require some planning and monitoring of patrol paths and keeping an eye out for lethal drones.
Plenty of cybernetic and tactical kit to help you out, but timing might be everything.
This one covers the '90s. Looking forward to the upcoming Part 3.
BTW Part 1 is here
Some others worth looking at Harebrained Schemes #Shadowrun series, Supergiants #Transistor, Spiders #TheTechnomancer, Zeboyd Games #CosmicStarHeroine, #EYEDivineCybermancy, #Dex, #Echo, #SatelliteReign, #SystemCrash, #NeonChrome, #VirtuaVerse, @silverspookgames #Neofeud
not forgetting the currently in development Trese Brothers #CyberKnightsFlashpoint
Also, shout out to #WeAreNameless and all the shadowrunners working that block.
Asked about #Linux support ...
"Yes, Linux support is something we feel strongly about. All of our past Steam games have had native Linux support from day one and we're going to keep that up with CKF. Linux is included in the alpha phase, so its a full citizen around here"
Got me some #Cyberpunk future with plenty of replayability.
Cyber Knights Flashpoint
Looking forward to seeing how this one develops if it has the depth & design of Star Traders Frontiers we're in for a real treat.
Being developed for Windows,Mac and #Linux.
It hits all the right notes, has a suitable near-future augmented world & posits a new dilemma of when AI is integrated into our wetware.
Much more than I expected when I first set out to watch it.
