Every time I did one I felt handcuffed to the cut scene until I perfectly got the info they needed not ever being able to leave until perfection was achieved...not the way I wanted to spend my time. As I.ve said before this is the most expensive movie in my game library!Hoping CDPR has plans for this feature. I imagine their main focus right now is squashing bugs and giving whatever performance boosts they can, but it would be fantastic to see some recreational braindance options as DLC down the line.
I think they initially planned to give players way more freedom and 'very' naughty side activities, hell they even allow you to customize your old chap and there're shops that sell dildos the size of legs..It's a game made for adults. I realize these little side activities are far from being most important, but they add to the overall package in cool ways, and their absence is noticed.

But at some point during development they decided to hush hush all those naughty things because while you can say that this game is M 18+ rated for adults and I agree. because it's fine to carry a M 18+ rating and still advertise and sell it in 'normal' shops. Last few GTA games has always been M 18+ rated.
if they include all the naughty stuff everybody wanted, they'll get the AO rating, now AO is a whole other story , it's above and beyond, in the tentacle land with all the weird stuff only available in weird shops full of shady, sweaty people. Not the best place to be. Plus no major retailers can sell AO games, and most definitely not on PSN or XBOX.
Indeed , and the older gamers among us may still remember the GTA:SA 's 'hot coffee' scandal. 'Interactive sex scene' is a huge NO in ESRB's eyes..I remember how Bethesda got in a lot of trouble for have nude people in Oblivion but it was really a mod that put that
in. Our (USA) government and vendors just could not understand the diffidence however.
Some governments force you to remove certain flags, some force you to remove BONES! Some will not allow RL versions of guns. Global market is a new kind of color beige.
There's nothing special about country-gated content. Games have had this for years. Despite the gore we see over here in Japanese-made games, Japan actually forbids the display of blood, for example, and it's often replaced by fluids of a different color, or something else entirely, over there. If PEGI allows things for an 18+ rating that the ESRB doesn't, then just add that extra stuff to the European release and let Americans wish they lived on this side of the pond. No biggie.Indeed , and the older gamers among us may still remember the GTA:SA 's 'hot coffee' scandal. 'Interactive sex scene' is a huge NO in ESRB's eyes..
Still got my fingers crossed that they do something with BD in the DLC. I loooved the BD sections, but I agree that there should be much more of a challenge and multiple solutions to the section itself. Missing details should affect the overall mission later in the game. That kind of thing.
Makes sense that this would be a huge gameplay element for netrunners and police.
Interesting Idea. To incorporate what you have described into Cyber punk, perhaps after a while of doing your Biz in Night City, the relic malfunctions could become more intense and there for you will need to pop a pill you acquire from Misty after the heist mission to reduce the malfunctions.I spend ridiculous amount of time looking into ever crack, on top of every shelf and behind every potted plant looking for hidden "treasure". So the BD to me was also fun. It would have been cool if they had more of them and there was an Easter egg or some reward (in game not a "achievement" ) in one of them for those that spent the effort looking. I had expected that to happen in the meditation BD. Or at least some game physical bonus for the meditation BD.
The last Oblivion mod I had been working on (never finished it unfortunately) was for a new "Stress" meter. After a day of fighting and physical effort or a lot of spell casting your would get various points of stress that would build up and inflate the meter.
The stress could be reduced in all kinds of various ways such as spending time in the tavern talking and drinking. Various hobbies like colleting and displaying any item you designated (such as weapons or jewelry it was your choice of any one TYPE of item in the game). Spending a game hour watching the sun set (that one was "fun" to figure out how to make happen. The mod used game data to put an tiny yellow ball at the sun location moving it with the sun as it raise or set. If the player looked at this ball at certain time of morning or evening for a time the mod could track this).
But also I had meditation where you would stare at a light candle while tapping a key in a rhythm, then you would experience light and sound and music effects. POOF! Stress all gone...
Would have been nice to get a timed healing bonus or something form the BD meditation
Funny you should mention the relic malfunctions becoming increasingly vivid.Interesting Idea.

A little like the malaria attacks in Far Cry 2.
Funny you should mention the relic malfunctions becoming increasingly vivid.
Last weekend when I played some hours with my Corpo, after the mission with Panam where you get Hellman (Breaking Light), the mechanic of the relic malfunction persisted even after closing/finishing that mission. It turned the play-session into a real trip, regretfully cut short because I underestimated a Cyberpsycho (Anna). In a strange way I really liked it though, because it made the experience go completely different and unique.
If a BD, visitng a bar or doing anything that can be considered relaxing would make the malfunctions subside, that would've been a cool mechanic in the game also.
I have recorded a bit of that play-session, I just have to cut down that video because there's too much menu gazing. However when I get to that I could upload it for the experience.
With my Nomad I'm about to start that same mission, I can check if I get the same issue (or feature ) and see if I can get some fun with it again.Yeah same here the malfunctioning visual effect lingered with me after leaving the room until I reloaded the save because there isn't a way to stop it.
