Started this today. I played through the starting mission twice, trying to figure out my character. Eventually, I’ve settled on a Physical Adept Elf Swordmaiden. I’m having to be careful and approach combat very cautiously because while melee is feasible, it’s a bit rough at times. Also, basically running a mage who doesn’t cast spells, but casts “attacks” is an interesting switch.
I probably should have done a decker and may do one if I come back to the game or if/when I move to HK.
Also, can I just say that I love the way your character’s history is setup in the game? I found myself just answering questions, feeling what seemed right, and suddenly realized my Runner is mourning the death of her girlfriend, dealing with a past betrayal that brought her to the Flux State. All just from what seemed right in answering the questions. I like that HBS gave us the option to do it that way.
More and more, Lady M is revealing herself to be an elf very interested in maintaining this space that her now ex-girlfriend started to build, carving up any and all threats, especially some random collection of human supremacists. She even decided in the middle of an audition run to say “screw it” and blew the run, deciding she didn’t want to work for the people who had hired her. I liked that the game had that as an actual possibility because it just felt right for the moment.
So far, I’m quite enjoying. Now if I can just figure out why this game only seems to run at 60 FPS on a system that can run D2 at 100+ FPS consistently.
