Vik does speak of it when you ask him in that scene.Another small detail I noticed about Sandra and Viktor is that right before you jack into Sandra's head or whatever, V asks if that is even safe to do. Basically they do it anyways and that's how they contact this sickness from Sandra. Later when you go to Vik's to get your Kiroshi you tell him about the virus and after he's done the operation he doesn't make any mention of curing it for you. Almost like he forgot that you even mentioned it and just installed your Kiroshi and hand grip.
I thought these were just weird non important things at first but after reading your post it kind of sounds like some foreshadowing connecting to night-corp fucking with your brain or other people's brains for that matter.
Aaaaah, but that's just it. The news never said it's V..... I think it just normal quick hack blind
You can do this at level 1
And everyone knew V from TV
He is the guy who murder Saburo, which is more important than the president of America
Then jump out the building, doom the security army, and still alive from the endless Arasaka ninja and countless corp agent and billion reward and Adam Smasher.
The most strange thing is why Arasaka never nuke him, maybe he can't die, since he is the man who got a bullet at brain and nothing happened.
The fixer give any job to V, and their most worry is how to fix it if V rush in and slaughter every witness to keep the mission silence.
Aaaaah, but that's just it. The news never said it's V.
In the story Yorinobu was pointing fingers at Militech to cause destabilization in Arasaka's power base.
They never showed V as the "murderer".
So no. Not "everyone" knows V from TV.
Yup, there was a gig (the Peralez's quest? I don't remember), where the internal med system shows no problems, and even random forced check shows nothing, but on consecutive checks it shows discrepancies.Wild speculation, but if it was an AI and not a simple virus it's possible that it fooled Vic into thinking he removed it. The AIs can disguise themselves according to the shards.
Can't kill him either. I reached that balcony and threw a couple grenades - nothing.When you have your final meeting with Peralez, Blue Eyes can be seen on an adjacent building. You can't target him unfortunately.
NightCorp is kinda obvious thing - we've saved and then helped Sandra Dorsett, who was working on some behaviour-changing programs and, possibly, additional hint was given at the meeting with Jefferson Peralez - there is a huge NightCorp sign on the left.Wild theory Mr. Blue Eyes is Morgan Blackhand! Considering also that ring thing maybe its a nightcorp or some sort of anti corp thing?
Appealing, but improbable, imho. Here's why.SPOILERS AHEAD!
Hello all, I'd like to add some of my input on the Mr. Blue Eyes/Night Corp theory.
During the Dream On quest, before confronting Peralez, V gets an ominous holo-call. His vision goes black and he is warned to not step out of line. The "Unknown Caller" knows of V, Johnny, and what their goals are. But we never find out how they know so much about V when he's kept it mostly a secret.
Enter Sandra Dorsett, the woman you save from the ice bath in the introduction mission. She works for Night Corp. She's also a netrunner who stole information about Nightcorp's tests with AI on the general public and possibly creating Cyberpsychosis.
During your rescue of Nightcorp's little turncoat, you jack into her neuroport and contract a virus. And it's right here, ladies and gentlemen, when "Nightcorp" officially owns you. (Nightcorp's in quotes for a reason. Read on.)
See, I don't think Sandra was "snatched off the streets" as T-Bug suggests. I think she was retired by Nightcorp after stealing the data from them. She was left for dead and injected with a tracking virus in hopes that her secret allies would come to pick her up (Wakako maybe?) and expose themselves to the virus. It wasn't meant for you, but they struck gold when V was the one that got infected. Sandra also cannot confirm how she ended up this way because, according to T-Bug, "She won't remember any of this...just a small scar on the subconscious."
Vik removed the virus later, (or did he?) but by then it was too late. Your ID was known, and after that, Nightcorp would know each and every time you jack into a terminal. All of those terminals are owned and managed by Ziggurat which basically owes its entire business to Night Corp.
I've heard several theories about Mr. Blue Eyes being anything from Mr. Night, a rogue A.I. or even Morgan Blackhand, but I don't think that question is important. It's clear that the man is only a proxy; completely expendable. We do not know who is connected to him and talking through him.
It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up dead in future DLC to prove it.
What I believe is important is his affiliation: Ziggurat.
Ziggurat came into the public eye in 2030, (7 years after Morgan Blackhand vanished) when it received a grant from Night Corp. to rebuild the city's (and eventually the world's) networks. Ziggurat is important here because rebuilding the world's network allows the A.I. to influence every major corporation across the globe, acting as a real-world extension of the A.I. beyond Blackwall.
I've not completed the game yet. (260 hours in and still exploring. ) But I've had enough spoilers to know that we may end up in space. The venture is funded by Mr. Blue Eyes. Assuming I am right about Ziggurat, it's very possible that this is how they plan to infect previously inaccessible servers for the benefit of the A.I.
V, "The Fool", is just playing his part in the hand he's dealt and unwittingly helping the A.I.

Fun side note:
When we find Sandra Dorsett again after her recovery, she's absolutely paranoid about Nightcorp finding her. She's got turrets protecting her, and doesn't like using the front door. None of that paranoia will help her though. She's going to get flatlined. (Assuming you didn't do it already.) If the Unknown Caller was right, and they know all about V and Johnny, then they also know about Sandra. And you led them right to her.
