Cyberpunk 2077 has multiple starting points indicates quest designer Pawel Sasko. He first implied this feature during an interview with VG24/7 but his wording wasn’t clear enough. One of the fans reached out to Sasko for clarification on Twitter. According to Pawel, he is going to stand by what he said but can’t further comment on it. Pawel Sasko wishes to ignore spoilers but it is pretty clear he can’t speak outside of that interview. I stand for what I have said but would prefer not to confirm too much here as it’s strongly tied to the story and spoiling it is like a crime to me. I feel you will like it, let’s keep it at that. Based on what he said in the interview, Cyberpunk 2077 will have different starting points. These starting points depend on the life path you choose at the beginning of the game. You…

Marvel’s Avengers game might be the worst E3 2019 showing. Fans weren’t happy with character designs, the trailer itself was very underwhelming and the only gameplay showcased for the game was behind closed doors. Turns out there is a reason for that and Marvel’s Avengers might be another Anthem. One of the people who got to see the behind the closed doors demo for Marvel’s Avengers was “Luke Stephens”. According to the Youtuber, Square Enix was very strict about the no phone and camera policy and watching the demo it was clear why. He added that Marvel’s Avengers didn’t look polish at all and seemed like the developers need more than a year to polish the game. He noted that it looked like a video game from 2010 and demo itself was strictly linear. Furthermore, the demo didn’t even have any narrative reason to justify the switch between the heroes.…

Blade Runner is a 1997 video game developed by Westwood Studios. However, you can’t play the game because it runs too fast on modern machines and the devs lost the original code when they shifted offices. But dedicated fans have managed to make Blade Runner Immortal playable on modern machines and it took them just 8 years. Thomas Fach-Pedersen along with his small team managed to run Blade Runner using the ScummVM. However, you need to own the original game and even then the game requires additional fixes to make it playable. The original game is technically playable, but needs some fixes to get it working. But not everything works properly. Some parts of the game are written in such a way that they simply run too fast on modern computers. The reason why Thomas Fach-Pedersen and team are spending so much time to make the game playable is that…

How long has it been since we saw a Half-Life game from Valve? Yet despite overwhelming demand from the community Valve refused to work on it for over a decade. The good news is that the Half-Life community is still alive and thriving. Members of the community started a new Half-Life project under the codename “Borealis.” Fan made Half-Life 2 Episode 3 Project Borealis uses a highly modified Unreal Engine 4. Unlike the traditional Half-Life engine (Source Engine), Unreal Engine 4 is a well-rounded tool. Project Borealis has been in development for a while but finally, we have gameplay. And let me tell you, Valve needs to take a look at this and higher these guys to develop an official game. Team Borealis released a five-minute gameplay video from a work-in-progress section. In the level we see Gordon infiltrate a Combine facility. Most of the elements we see in the…

Shenmue 3 class action lawsuit might be around the corner. Disgruntled fans are demanding refunds and threatening Ys Net with lawsuits. Ys Net generated millions from its Kickstarter but refuses to honor the contract with its backers. According to recent updates, PC players may not get the promised physical edition. Not only Shenmue 3 is an Epic Games Store exclusive, but it could also be digital only on PC. Shenmue 3 Kickstarter backers received confirmation emails for Steam and physical versions. But the Epic Games Store deal threw Ys Net’s original plans out the window. Ys Net responded to the criticism earlier and promised to “assess” the situation after E3 wrap up. The post got more heat from the community who at this point only wish for a refund. We want to make sure that the Backers are aware that we are listening to their concerns. We kindly ask all…

With The Division 2 TU4 rolled out on the live servers, the game now has its first piece of Exotic Gear: a holster called the Dodge City Gunslinger Exotic Holster alongside the new Gunner specialization. It’s a pretty good holster given the fact that it can work with different niche builds. It’s definitely not a must-have holster for every build out there, especially if you’re chasing certain Attributes/Talents, but there are other Exotic Armor pieces on the way (hopefully!). One important thing to note about the Dodge City Gunslinger Exotic Holster is that you can equip with Liberty Exotic Pistol, making it one of the better holsters for pistol builds. You can also use it to replace holsters with “Fill ‘Er Up” (LMG builds) since you’ll reload both your LMGs faster with the Exotic Holster equipped. The Division 2 Dodge City Gunslinger Exotic Holster Before we begin talking about acquiring…

Call of Duty Modern Warfare is censored as reported by many websites. The news sparked a wave of disappointment in the community because fans hoped for an authentic war experience. But rest assured, the reports aren’t true. Despite pressure from the mainstream media, Infinity Ward will not censor Modern Warfare. Infinity Ward has confirmed there is no censorship in Call of Duty 2019. There will be content cut from the game but not due to censorship. Furthermore, during the course of development, many aspects of the story and gameplay are often put aside. There is nothing to worry about as IW will deliver its true vision. Addressing the ongoing censorship rumors, Narrative Director Tylor Kurosaki said: “We never would. Those are rumors. Not true.” Tylor confirmed that the only content removed from the game is the one that doesn’t work. Cutting and adding content is a routine practice and part…

At RespawnFirst we aim to publish quality content and do our best to make sure you are well informed. The purpose of any review is to make sure you know if a product is worth your money. And Anthem is clearly not. After playing the game since release I only need a few paragraphs to review this game. And even that paragraph I will summarize in one sentence for your right now: Anthem is a horrible. Anthem took 6 years to develop but the final product, even after months of its release is no way near what BioWare promised. Anthem has fundamental issues with its loot system, customization, and progression. The lack of a meaningful story mixed with horrible animations, cut content, and server issues make the game unplayable and highly uninteresting. There are numerous glitches including a persistent teleportation glitch. You are constantly teleported back to where you started.…
