If you don’t have a SSD… well. That day is finally here, apparently:
The day of the HDD is ending, at least for gaming. I’d call it bloat, but it’s the way of the world. You can only spin things so fast. The good news is, the You Have Got To Be Kidding Me price point is somewhere around 4 TB these days: 2 TB drives are fairly reasonable. Now’s your time to upgrade!

However, what I really need for CYBERPUNK 2077 are tiered opponents that respawn quickly, and/or lots more quest mods. Actually, what I really need is an MMO, but that’s not happening and we all know it.
I wonder if I’m just going to decide to start with a new CorpoV? Maybe. It’ll depend on how significant the changes really are.
The mercenary captains are either capable men or they are not; if they are, you cannot trust them, because they always aspire to their own greatness, either by oppressing you, who are their master, or others contrary to your intentions; but if the captain is not skillful, you are ruined in the usual way.
