Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty
So I have been staying up very late with a small child strapped to me (newborn with GERD) playing through Cyberpunk 2077 again now that the Phantom Liberty expansion & 2.0 is out and I got to say it’s so good. It really feels like the game that CDPR had intended it to be back in 2020.
Also…I sided with Reed during my playthrough and holy shit, the scene that follows that is some of the most tense survival horror I’ve played in a long time.
Anywho, if you’ve been waiting to get into it or on the fence about it, I would suggest checking it out now.
Here’s my V build; I went Netrunner as per my usual:
@somasatori I recently was gifted the game and I’m trying to get into the mindset of it, mod it to my taste.
Any must-have quality of life mods you’re running? Hope your playthrough is awesome!
I’ve been thinking about picking it up but I’m not ready to confront the fact that it was originally released three years ago.
@Tez And it’s STILL a flagship/benchmark. The recovery on this game was impressive, we really thought it was gonna be a bad meme.
@Muscle-Car I’ve actually never used mods for CP2077! There were a couple that were suggested to me, specifically the following:
- Better loot markers (I really want to do a non-achievements run with this one because the loot markers can be super annoying)
- CP2077 Tools
- Metro System (not sure if this is still usable with 2.0/PL)
- AI Netrunners Enhanced (again, not sure if this is still usable with 2.0. The AI netrunners are better than they were, but still pretty weak by comparison to a pure netrunner V)
And for me, I really want to try:
- River Romance Enhanced
- Judy Romance Enhanced
Have fun with it! It’s a great game and definitely has that cyberpunk to post-cyberpunk feel these days.
@Tez It’s wild to think that it’s been 3 years. I picked up CP2077 during my second semester of my PhD program. Since then I’ve put an embarrassing number of hours on it.
@somasatori Awesome, thanks so much.

I wish I could play first person camera games without getting sick.
@sao Get your friend/honey/well-trained house pet to play it for you and tell them what to do haha. I totally make my partner play games for me when they’re ones I can’t/won’t play.
Like jumpscare games. Heck that!

All in on chroming up and getting that sandy, baby.
I just need handlers to stop whining that I wasn’t undercover enough. Oh, boo hoo. If you wanted stealth you called the wrong merc, choom. I’ve got a handful of grenades a katana and if you’ve got a problem, yo, I’ll solve it, but it’s going to involve the entire block being set on fire and everyone involved being decapitated. I don’t have an anger problem, Regina, I’ve got an anger solution. Now step aside, cos I need to crouch behind that box for thirty seconds until the cops decide they aren’t getting paid enough to deal with this shit.

For real, Regina getting mad at me because I zeroed a whole bar of Tyger Claws after they caught me trying to bust in and steal a cyber-eye that her dumbass choom wagered in their casino.
Fuck him, and fuck you.
I should have just sold that eye to Vik.
Well I’m about 75 hours in. I’m going super slow on the story so I can just relish combat.
My primary attack is charge, dash, ads+time slow, headshot bouses like whoa (just did my first 3K damage headshot yesterday at level 35 hehe). Basically parkour charges my attacks and I whip around a power sniper rifle like a pistol. My hacks are all anti-mech/anti-drone/counterhack.
And I just got air dash. It’s got me all hot and bothered. ️
The game still has a decent amount of jank and glitches but as someone with like 5K hours in Bethesda games this is tolerable. I’m having a blast.
How’s it coming for y’all?

I rather like the suicide quickhack. That and cyberpsychosis are my two favorites.
Also, River’s job concerning his nephew is legitimately disturbing. Which is awesome.

The Reflexes tree feels AMAZING. When fully specced in to, the dashes feel absolutely freeing. Air dashing is free? You better believe I’m bunny hop double-jump-dashing my way everywhere.
@Solstice On a long enough timeline all cars get an LS. On a long enough timeline, all gun play becomes TF2’s Scout.
@SpaceKhomeini I started a new run as a Solo rather than my usual Netrunner build and I got this flak for “not putting in effort” from Regina for the first time. I had the exact same reaction.
