To be honest, I bought Cyberpunk 2020 rule book just for lore purposes, as I love Cyberpunk 2077.
However, if you are looking to actually role play, just keep in mind that you are only getting the rulebook and nothing else. Although, take a look at the Cyberpunk Red jumpstart kit as it will provide you with the necessary items to assist you with your role playing experience.

If you buying this rulebook for lore purposes, it's quite detailed and will even provide you with ah ha moments.

Anyway I am just Chippin' In.

Awesome Purchase

Reviewed by on

Resident Evil 2 board game is a fantastic addition to your collection. I found the game to be easier to understand and jump into compared to others such as Fallout. The board game itself pays homage to Resident Evil 2, you will notice maps/tiles seem familiar.

The miniatures are cool, however they lack some finer details, however do not get me wrong - they are still amazing to look at.
My biggest complaint, would be how dark the tiles are.

Overall, if you looking to co-op or just jump into a solo scenario - have look at the Resident Evil 2 board game.

You are constantly chased being called a “stupid manthing”, and referred to as “meat.

This game definitely has a feminist heavy storyline, especially at the end.

What is good in this game? Well,the graphics are good (during the day…you’ll see why if you play or look at a video on YouTube). The scenery is okay. The game doesn’t really change much, but is okay.

The games are sort like how you upgrade from resident 4, and feels a little more like if that game was in first person”.

New game plus. Any game today should automatically have this as a stardard, especially story based games like this where some parts are extremely boring.

Cut scenes are very well done, and lighting.

What’s wrong with the game?

You can’t use a flashlight…unless the developers think you need it. Not being funny, but being someone at has disabled family at enjoy the franchise couldn’t even do the first part due to how dark the game is (even on max brightness), and made them feel alienated & unwelcome.

Guns are fairly dull & boring. It’s fun to see an upgrade actually do anything to your weapons, but but even maxing out your weapons, and getting all upgrades, it is still an overly boring, shallow experience.

The storyline is predictable, and vampires are okay, but it doesn’t feel like a resident evil game, especially when you are first person only. It’s nice, but an option would of been much more accurate. The ending is straightforward if you’ve listened to dialogue or played the previous games then you’ll piece it together.

Enemies are literal bullet sponges. Literally, on either casual or hardcore. Literally, it’s embarrassingly sad to see at this is what classes as “difficult” gaming by today’s generation, but…it is what it is. If that’s your thing you’ll enjoy it, but it gets boring after about 5 enemies, especially when enemies have barely any differences between them except for a few.

Is this game worth the price? No. Definitely no. The best thing you can do, give it about 2 months or so. Pick it up second or wait til price drops. Games like this die extremely fast, and once youtubers move onto another game (until dlc lands), games like this fizzle out after about 3-5 weeks.

Highly, highly recommended at least watch the first 30-60 minutes of gameplay on YouTube before you buy.

Reviewed by on

Bad programming and just not fun:

-There isn't a way to "save and quit" or take a break without leaving your system in standby (what the developer recommends) or dying and losing your progress.

-This game does not respect your time. When you think of games that reset upon death like Returnal, you may think of Binding of Issac, Hades, Don't Starve, Dead Cells, and Enter the Gungeon. One thing sets Returnal out as different in a bad way compared to these other games. Each 'life' in Returnal takes a pretty hefty time investment. Getting to the second boss enemy took me close to four hours. And that was the attempt where I defeated it. I failed numerous times to get there before this.

-The levels are procedurally generated. Typical, but it makes other parts slower.

-Every enemy encounter plays out like a Bullet Hell game.

-Very little progress spans multiple iterations. A lot of outlets said that there is a currency that you keep, which is true, and that you use that currency to buy upgrades that you keep, which is a stretch. You keep some story items to make things a bit easier, but nothing that makes it feel like you are making any progress. You are still at the whims of the RNG to get weapons and artifact drops that you have unlocked. What you 'unlock' are what items, weapons, and weapon abilities that have the potential to drop in any given run.

-Story progression is very slow. Because everything is procedurally generated, what story elements you get with each run is random.

-It is too easy to get bad drops and play for hours and not actually make any type of progress.

A Intolerable waste of your hard earned cash.

No, I didn't see you pink watch...It's SALMON!!!

Reviewed by on

Great little watch for a great price. Sure, these are more fitness tracker than smartwatch, but design and materials are way above a typical fitness band. Coral Red sounds girly, but its more dark orange that pairs nicely with the silver aluminium body and black ceramic bezel. The GTR loses out on COVID-induced features like SpO2 and stress measurement, being a watch launched pre-madness (how I miss you, 2019!), but it still packs decent fitness and sleep tracking plus built-in GPS (hard to find in this price range). Be sure to disable lift-to-wake, this kills battery life down to 2 days. With scheduled Always-on display and 1min interval heart rate measuring, I manage about 5 days of battery life, not bad but nowhere near advertised. I like the Auto-DND that activates when you go to sleep and the PAI-system that scores you points based on tracked heart rate. Plenty of cool watchfaces to download in the app and pairs well on iOS. GPS connects relatively quickly and included barometer gives your outdoor run stats some extra detail. Beefy blokes, rather go for the 46mm variant, if you can find it. Although this watch is meant for girlish-sized wrists, it still packs plenty to love...just call it Winterberry instead of Coral Red, please...

Innovative with room to grow

Reviewed by on

This deck is great. It packs in some awesome reprints like Feldon of the Third Path and Hellkite Tyrant with new cards that breathe new life into the red/white colour combo. If your collection is large enough you are likely to find many cool upgrades among the cards you already own that Osgir's second ability puts into overdrive.

One criticism is that certain staples like lightning greeves, Blasphemous act and chaos warp weren't included.
