Witnesses do not discuss spiritual matters with a person who has disassociated himself from the Witnesses, including family members. But I want to stress that, contrary to published reports, I was not required to "shun" my son.

Semi- Justified in that you only get what the recorder's cyberware enhancements picked up, but you can still move around in it to view different angles, and get data the recorder didn't notice, enhance and hear both sides of a whispered phone conversation, and even download whole files when the recorder only saw a single screenshot. Epileptic Flashing Lights : Shortly before release, it was discovered that the flashing lights that precede braindance sequences were done in a pattern that consistently triggered epileptic seizures for at least one reviewer.
The developers issued an apology, added an epilepsy warning screen in patch 1. Everyone Is Bi : Well, not everyone. But in addition to Kerry being bisexual note In lore; in gameplay, he's only available romantically to a V with a masculine voice and body typePanam can be romanced by a female V with a masculine frame and vice versa for River.
Meredith Stout is available as a one night stand for any V if you reply to her texts correctly. Rogue is willing to sleep with Johnny regardless of V's body note Though it's difficult to say if this is a reflection of her actual identity or more of a If It's You, It's Okay kind of situationand Johnny himself alludes to not really caring about the gender of someone willing to sleep with him.
V can also be played as bisexual. The only character with an explicitly confirmed orientation that isn't bisexual is Judy, who's a lesbian. Everything Is Online : doors, security systems, weapons, and even people are all hooked up to various networks, to the point you can and often have to hack into most of them.
Expanded Universe : The game is the "main" work in the Cyberpunk universe, but it's accompanied by officially licenced comics published by Dark Horse Comics that tell the stories taking place in the universe, but have no direct impact on the game's story and feature different casts of characters. Mainly earned by neutralizing enemies and completing quests.
Skill Levelswhich give V skill points and passive abilities. Earned by using the corresponding skill; V gains Street Brawling experience by punching people, Quickhack experience by hacking people's implants, Cold Blood experience by racking up a kill combo, etc. Note that each of V's skill levels cannot exceed their corresponding parent attribute. Street Credwhich unlocks new quests and shop equipment. Mainly earned by, once again, neutralizing enemies and completing quests, but at a far faster rate than V's character level.
Extra Eyes : An option for augmented optics are multi-camera arrays resembling spider eyes, as used by the Maelstrom gang. Eye Scream : The E3 trailer features two examples, one of a man's eye getting ripped out, the other of a corporate burning alive from within, with flames shooting out of his mouth and eye sockets. Taken Up to Eleven when V goes to visit Viktor for the first time. V's eye is plucked out by a robotic hand and it immediately goes dark.
Their replacement cybernetic eye is then activated before being implanted, allowing them to watch their own body on the operating chair, and it stays on as the ripper inserts it into their eye socket. Fake Band : Songs on the radio are attributed to made-up artists, for example Samurai, Johnny Silverhand's band, is actually Refusedwith Dennis Lyxzen credited as Johnny's singing voice, and Lizzy Wizzy's songs are performed by her voice actress, Grimes. Hip-hop producer Konrad Oldmoney is actually credited as twenty eight fake bands, one for each artist he collaborated with.
Fallen States of America : Yet another cyberpunk hallmark, though played with. The United States federal government has almost completely broken with many of the states outright seceding from the union.
What remains of the US and its successor states are third world countries in all but name, The Favorite Game - Coroner - Coroner (Cassette) to the brim with crime and violence as well as both political and corporate corruption.
Compared to s, however, it's an improvement : the NUSA had succeeded in regaining control over much of the union, with the notable exception of Texas and Night City. America's armed forces remain the world's most powerful military and could wipe out Arasaka if they wanted to, only refraining from doing so due to how costly it'd be. Fanservice : The game is full of beautiful characters left and right in various stages of undress.
Fanservice Extra of both sexes are often hocking wares and many of the models are attractive men or women wearing the clothes you'd find in a California hot summer. The Lizzie's Bar brothel is also full of gorgeous young punk women. You will find yourself visiting at least a couple of other brothels too. While all four main romance options JudyPanamKerry and River are fully realised characters with proper depth, all of them are also very attractive, and their romance routes feature custom-made, explicit sex scenes in the first person.
Meredith does look good in leathertoo bad you can only see her in it once. The alternative outfit for Johnny added in patch 1. It's a custom mesh that adds the tattoo from his concept art which was previously absent, but the player can only see a small piece of it. Fan Disservice : The first mission in the gameplay reveal has V rescuing a woman named Sandra Dorsett, who spends her entire time on the whole mission entirely naked.
She's also dying and covered in deep cuts and gashes, her complexion is deathly pale from blood loss and trauma, her head shaved bald, having spent god-knows-how-long in an ice-cube filled bathtub in scavenger captivity.
The braindances offered with Dolls at Clouds. They're an erotic yet psychologically engaging experience with Intimate Psychotherapy as part of the package. Your partner, Skye or Angel, goes into the details of your life as well as recent loss of your partner Jackie while leading you up to what is implied to be The Favorite Game - Coroner - Coroner (Cassette) sex. Except then you cut the feed and your partner immediately loses all awareness of what was going on, meaning the entire thing would have been SciFi Rape at best.
The extremely raunchy advertisements for things like dog food, cybernetics, TV shows, and tubes of meat paste are so ubiquitous they become background noise, and so ridiculous they lose any appeal they might have had.
Fashionable Asymmetry : Seems to be a trend in vehicle styling. Many of them features asymmetrycal tail- or headlight design. Chevillon Thrax even comes with asymmetrycal grille. Major exeption are Rayfield cars. The Rayfield Aerondight supercar is at least partially based on Bugatti Veyron with its distinctive front grille. The Quadra Type 66 and its subtypes are an ode to a variety of classic American muscle cars over the years, having elements of a variety of them in its aesthetic design: you can spot elements from the Ford Mustang, Dodge Charger, and Pontiac Trans-Am, for example.
First, they can solve the case of the mysterious death of Night City's mayor, and later on they can catch a serial killer who kidnapped River's nephew. Fighter, Mage, Thief : Despite the game not having a real class system, the three general approaches to combat boil down to the classic trio even so. Focusing on Body and Reflexes creates a warrior-style solo that fights with brute force in melee and massive firepower at close to medium range.
Going for Reflexes, Tech and Cool results in a thief playstyle that relies on stealth and long-range firepower. Last but most definitely not least, any Intelligence-heavy build plays like a traditional mage with a wide array of "spells" fueled by a sci-fi version of a mana bar. Filk Song : Several, by various artists: City of Night by Miracle of Soundmade shortly after the original teaser trailer, and remade shortly after its release.
City of Dreams by Miracle of Soundabout the city itself and the opportunities it holds. Neon Red by Miracle of Soundabout the nature of cybernetic augmentation and its potential downsides. Technoshocka Dan Bull rap about the nightmarish state of Night City and how cybernetics are both a way The Favorite Game - Coroner - Coroner (Cassette) improve human capabilitiesbut also potentially coming at a price for their user's sanity.
Follow That Car : Happens The Favorite Game - Coroner - Coroner (Cassette) a few missions. In "Sinnerman" you have to chase down a police car carrying mass-murderer Joshua Stephenson. And during the final race in "The Beast in Me", Claire asks you to chase after Peter Sampson instead of racing for the finish line so that she can execute him in retaliation for seemingly killing her husband.
After decoding a series of routers, V finds out that Swedenborg was a modified fortune telling machine, called Leonora the Savantron, from Pacifica. Misty is a somewhat more modern take on the trope, being more Perky Goth than Magical Romani.
She does tarot readings as one of the services in her shop, and can read V's future in a couple occasions. For Want of a Nail : The absolute crux that essentially results in the entire plot after Act 1 is that Saburo and Yorinobu happened to have their meeting at the same moment that V and Jackie were burgling Yori's penthouse.
Had the duo been but a few minutes earlier, Jackie and V would have had a good chance of klepping the Relic before the meeting and likely would have been walking out the door long before Arasaka even knew it was missing. A few minutes later, and T-Bug would likely scrub the heist since she wasn't able to crack the security systems in time. Another crux was that Evelyn organized the heist herself, rather than simply scrolling Yori's penthouse as the Voodoo Boys had originally hired her to do, with the intention of cutting them out of the deal to sell the Relic.
Had she stuck to her original orders and not asked too many questionsthe VDB would have obtained the Relic as they wanted and V and Jackie never would have gotten involved. Freudian Trio : Id: Jackie. He's a very affable, emotional guy who loves partying, food and other people. He's both most upbeat and most prone to strong emotions like anger or compassion his reaction to seeing Sandra Dorsett during "The Rescue".
Ego: V. Due to being the Player Characterthey can be more outgoing and upbeat like Jackie, or cooler and levelheaded like T-Bug, depending on the player's preference. Superego: T-Bug. She's much more distanced literally and emotionally from her co-workers' jobs, and gets V and Jackie out of trouble by staying cool and using logical thinking and her netrunning skills.
She's also a fan of Aristotle. From Stray to Pet : V can adopt a stray sphinx cat that lives near their apartment. Flying Car : Aerodynes, or "AV's" as they are colloquially called, which pretty much fill the airspace over Night City. True to the source material, AV's are reserved only for the wealthy and certain organizations such as the NCPD, military, private security, and Trauma Team, and, while some can be manually piloted, many are flown using automated systems so the passenger s can sit back and enjoy the flight.
V has several encounters with them throughout the game, an in some instances eve get to ride in them. The Corp prologue has V being chauffeured in one while going to Lizzie's bar. The game also has flying garbage trucks. Including one that crashed into the upper floor of a suburban house. Trauma Team's main vehicles are flying ambulances built like APCs, complete with autocannons which can and will shoot down any other AV in their way, whether it's blocking them intentionally or not.
The Fixer : An actual line of work in the game's world. V is hired by several fixers over the course of the game, most importantly by resurgent big shot Dexter DeShawn, to pull off jobs for clients who would like to distance themselves from the illegal nature of the work.
Future Slang : Has a few. The term is mostly used about big, noticeable implants like limb replacements. Chroming - Excessive use of cyberware.
Iron - Firearm. Klep - Steal. Klepper - A thief. Derived from "klep", see above. Monochrome - A corporate executive. Derived from the prevalence of black and white in corporate fashion styles such as Neo-Militarism, primarilyas opposed to the more colorful streetwear. Far more charged and derisive than "monochrome". Scop - Junk, garbage, crap, detritus.
Calling someone a "scopmuncher" is exactly as insulting as you think. Also the label for a synthetic protein supplement, standing for Single Cell Organic Protein, and considered to be poverty-level food of last resort.
Most Rippers also act as trauma surgeons and primary care physicians for those who, for various reasons, don't want to seek aid from a corp-owned medical facility. Funny Background Event : Johnny tends to hang in the background in most main plot and more important sidequest missions. Only V can see him, so he can pretty much do whatever he'd want without anyone else noticing him. In "Life During Wartime", he paces around the hotel room V and Hellman are talking, lying down on one of the beds and walking over another one.
In "Gimme Danger", he will appear lounging on a railing, and will drop down the building V and Takemura are on when he gets frustrated with Takemura's loyalty to Saburo. Futuristic Jet Injector : Gun-like jet injectors appear to be ubiquitous in the Night City, particularly with ripperdocs like Viktor, who uses one early in the game to sedate V's right arm while he grafts a ballistic augmentation onto their palm.
Gaia's Lament : Much like in the original source material, the planet is in rough shape, especially around Night City. Desertification is common, the rain is more acidic than not, and pretty much every natural body of water in and around Night City is some form of biohazardous. On the fauna side, animals are almost unheard of, due to the environmental devastation and several wildlife-borne diseases that started several human pandemics as well, and resulted in deliberate exterminations that essentially wiped out the few animals that managed to survive the pollution and diseases.
The worst part? No one cares. When an environmentalist tries to explain the horrific side effects that have been caused by killing off all birds, the talk show host brings out a woman who lost her children to Bird Flu and makes the environmentalist confront her. Game-Breaking Bug : It came to light that there's a hard cap of eight megabytes for a save file. Hitting this limit can and will cause your save data to become corrupted and irrecoverable. This is caused mostly by hoarding items, as the game has to note how many items you have and each item's individual stats, which adds up fairly quickly.
The issue was fixed in one of the first post-release updates, but the fix wasn't retroactive, so those players who had already lost their save data at this point were still out of luck. Gameplay and Story Segregation : One side mission has a Fixer send V after someone after they went out of control and killed all the guards and the driver during what was supposed to be a hijacking, claiming it drew too much attention and ire. And a lot of the time they just ignore it.
At no point can V point out they're a One-Man Army that might have already killed everyone there on their own, including the old owner, the last time they went and that they don't need any help.
Just like any open world RPG the player is free to make V run around killing innocent people and cops during free roam. Outside of getting the attention of cops for however briefly they bother to attack you there's never any lasting consequences for this and none of V's friends and acquaintances ever mention them going on a killing spree.
Missions that require you to remove your weapons always ignore all models of V's potentially cyber-weaponized forearms or a cyberdeck full of hostile quickhacks and act as if they're disarmed once they toss their weapons. Particularly noticeable in Konpeki Plaza where, with enough grinding, the player can purchase said cyberware but when put through a weapons scan comes up clean.
It's especially egregious when you remember that in the Cyberpunk lore, combat cybernetics are actually more dangerous than guns themselves, and even someone with just a single cyber-weapon can stil mow down swaths of gun-toting citizens before being brought down. If you go for the Temperance ending with the Aldecaldos' help, the game gets confused and treats Rogue as both alive and dead at the same time - Johnny-in-V's-body goes to the cemetery to mourn Rogue's death, only to get a call from her during the credits in which she verbally rips into him for what he allowed to happen.
It's possible that this ending was originally restricted to Johnny's version of the final mission before it was made available as an option for all choices except The Devil.
In gameplay V can heal from bullet wounds, explosions and melee attacks by inhaling a Maxdoc or injecting a Bounceback, which are in plentiful supply all around the city.
In the story wounds are portrayed far more realistically. Jackie bleeds out after the failed heist with V desperately yelling at Delamain to take him to a ripperdoc rather than just injecting Jackie with either of the two drugs. Attacking gangs never leads to any long lasting consequences. While every other gang member in the area will be hostile the faction as a whole never seems to hold a grudge against the lone merc who kills dozens if not hundreds of them in NCPD missions or free roam.
During the scene where V gets his or her first implants besides the Militech cyberdeck that he or she starts the game withV may comment on the Kiroshi optics, gushing over how they are "top shelf tech". In gameplay terms, however, these are the most rudimentary optical implants the player can receive, and they can be traded in for a superior version at almost any ripperdoc in the city.
Whether they're further upgraded or not, the supposed quality of V's optics is never brought up again by anyone. It gets even weirder when you realize that Kiroshi is the only optics manufacturer whose products V can purchase; there's literally no in-game competition. The game has a huge problem with keeping Johnny's and V's relationship consistent between the main story and sidequests. It's all too common to get into massive bitching contests with Johnny during a main quest, only to turn into instant best buddies in the next sidequest because quest dialogue doesn't change regardless of where in the overarching narrative you choose to do the side content.
Even if you choose for V to kill themself, Johnny just accepts it after a moment of anger. Even if you chose Arasaka and never said a bad thing about the company and only vocally disagreed with Johnny at every choice at that point, he acts like you're betraying yourself even if you really are the V you started as. Various characters and news casts point out how toxic the water in and around Night City is, but no matter how long V swims or even dives in lakes, river or the Pacific, they never suffer any ill effects.
Gangbangers : The "Gangs of Night City" featurette showcases several of the gangs, including the ones revealed earlier: the MaelstromVoodoo Boyzthe Animals and the Moxes. Gang of Hats : The gangs are visually, ideologically and criminally distinct: The Animals are roided-up bodybuilders used as muscle for hire. The Sixth Street are gun-toting Eaglelanders clad in military gear who started as a Vigilante Militia before falling into crime themselves. The Tyger Claws are Yakuza who behave more like Japanese Delinquents favoring melee weapons dabbling in prostitution and rackets.
The Maelstromers are augmented to the point of being grotesque and take their names out of the Norse Mythology, fittingly dealing in illegal cyberware and assorted activities. The Valentinos are stereotypical Central and South American gangsters with added gold-plated cybernetics. The Scavengers' rank-and-file behave like gopniki Russian hoodlums while their higher-ups take more from The Mafiya.
The Wraiths are a gang comprised of Raffen Shiv; Nomads exiled from their clans for heinous acts. They have a Desert Punk style to them. Gas Mask Mooks : Trauma Team personnel always have masks on to ensure they won't be afflicted with any potential airborne poisons, pathogens or illnesses while treating incapacitated patients.
You can also hook up with joytoys regardless of yours and theirs genders. Meredith Stout is available as a one-night stand for any V, which is completely missable if you don't speak to her correctly.
Gayngster : Same-sex romances and sexual encounters are available to the player for both male and female V, allowing you to play as a deadly hired gun operating in the Night City underworld who just happens to be gay or bi. Gender Bender : In the Temperance ending Johnny takes over V's body, which leads to this if you're playing as a female V. Man, I Feel Like a Woman can be averted or played straight, as Johnny can tell his new sidekick in the ending that he won't be a woman much longer, implying some corrective surgery is already lined up.
Gender Is No Object : Women, men, and people of other genders seem to be about equal in the grand scheme of things: There are female ripperdocs, edgerunners, policewomen and soldiers. The most respected fixer in the city, Rogue, is a woman. Alt was a brilliant and well-known netrunner when she was alive, and Judy is considered one of the best braindance editors out there.
Female V can be everything a male V can be. Nobody has any objections when Saul appoints Panam as the second leader to the Aldecaldos, nor do they have any issues if she starts leading them by herself after his death in "The Star" ending. Even a company very heavily tied to traditions like Arasaka has no problems with Hanako taking over after her father's death in "The Devil" ending.
Amusingly, even all the gangs have male and female members and seem to allow everyone to rise in the ranks on the same terms and allows women to become leaders Suzy Q is the leader of the Moxes, Ofelia can become a leader of Maelstrom, The Voodoo Boyz are led by Mama Brigitte and Tyger Claws and Animals have high-ranking female members.
That being said, women especially sex workers do tend to be victims of various forms of sexual assault by a wide margin; the Mox were explicitly formed by sex workers who felt it was safer look out for one-another. Ghost Town : Rocky Ridge is a direct example: planned development of suburban area that was swiftly abandoned when construction was deemed no longer economically viable.
Other, smaller examples can be found around the Night City Badlands. Dialogue with Panam while en route to Rocky Ridge mentions that there are thousands such abandoned settlements dotted across North America.
Pacifica is a former luxury oceanside resort that was left abandoned in the wake of the Unification War. Now part of its luxury hotels are filled with gangs and homeless squatters while a significant portion is walled off and known as the "Combat Zone". Gilligan Cut : In the E3 gameplay, V denies Jackie's prediction that they will spend everything on a three-day bender. In the next cut, they are shown waking up Another one happens in "The Gig" trailer: after T-Bug says "Preferably no bodies, not one", Jackie and V are shown going guns blazing through a bar.
Glowing Mechanical Eyes : A shorthand for the characters using the Net is their eyes glowing blue. Other colors are possible, like the Afterlife's bouncer's eyes glowing orange when he contacts Dex DeShawn over the local subnet. Golden Ending : Averted. These albums mark a distinct change in focus for the Mountain Goats project, being the first in a series of concept albums that explore aspects of The Mountain Goats' canon in depth. All Hail West Texas featured the resurrection of Darnielle's early boom box recording for a complete album.
Darnielle considers this album to be the culmination of his lo-fi recording style. Tallahasseerecorded with a band and in a studio, explores and concludes the relationship of a couple whose lives were the subject of the song cycle known as the Alpha Series. These three musicians formed what was considered the Mountain Goats studio band. The album marked a number of changes for the Mountain Goats, as it was the first time Darnielle worked with producer John Vandersliceand the first album of directly autobiographical material.
We Shall All Be Healed chronicles Darnielle's life with a group of friends and acquaintances addicted to methamphetamine in Portland, Oregonthough the album is set in Pomona, California. The following year, the band's second Vanderslice-produced album, The Sunset Treewas released.
Again autobiographical, Darnielle tackled the subject of his early childhood spent with an abusive stepfather. Jon Wurster joined the group inplaying drums on the last leg of the Get Lonely tour.
The band recorded tracks for its next album at Prairie Sun studios. Vincentand members of The Bright Mountain Choir. Released in a limited vinyl run of and sold during their "Gone Primitive" tour, the EP was a concept record about organ harvesting colonies on the Moon. In publicizing the record, the band made their first ever television appearance, performing "Psalms " on The Colbert Reporthosted by professed Mountain Goats fan Stephen Colbert.
The band's fourteenth studio album, Transcendental Youthwas released in late and in early they played at Carnegie Hall in support of John Green and Hank Green in their "Evening of Awesome" performance.
During an interview with Stereogum in AugustJohn Darnielle said that Amy Grant was his favorite pop artist, and noted that " Rich Mullins is one of the best songwriters I know of. In Maythey released their sixteenth studio album, Goths. The announcement was accompanied by a live music stream from the Wizards of the Coast headquarters.
The resulting album, entitled Songs for Pierre Chuvinwas inspired by Darnielle's reading of Pierre Chuvin 's book A Chronicle of the Last Pagansand was released digitally on April 10,with a limited physical release on cassette through Merge Records. The Mountain Goats announced in August that the band's nineteenth studio album, Getting Into Kniveswould be released on October 23, on CD, vinyl, cassette, and digital.
In Aprilthe Mountain Goats announced their album Dark in Here to be released on June 25, alongside the release of its first single "Mobile".
The band's music has been featured in the Showtime television series Weeds. The band made their television debut on October 6,playing "Psalms " on The Colbert Report.
The songs "Heel Turn 2" and "Sicilian Crest" originally premiered on the "weather report" section of the podcast Welcome to Night Vale. The first season features track-by-track discussions of The Mountain Goats' album All Hail West Texas and features a guest artist performing a cover of that episode's featured song. The song "No Children" was prominently featured in the series finale of You're the Worst.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. By Jack Newman For Mailonline. A driver who knocked down and killed a teenage cyclist then fled to go on a date could face a charge of gross negligence manslaughter after a coroner halted the inquest. Dylan Crossey, 15, suffered fatal injuries and died after being knocked off his bike by a BMW in Whitestake, Lancashire, on October 7 David Harwood, of Longton, was charged with causing death by dangerous or careless driving, but in the trial collapsed and Harwood walked free from court after being found not guilty.
Dylan Crossey, 15, pictured with his mother Tracey Milligan, suffered fatal injuries and died after being knocked off his bike by a BMW in Whitestake, Lancashire, on October 7 Dylan's mother Tracey Milligan has continued to fight for justice for her son.
He also ordered a reconstruction of the collision. During the inquest at County Hall, Preston, the jury heard how Harwood did not appear to have braked when he came upon Dylan and his friend cycling in the road. He continued on his journey to Buckshaw Village to meet a woman from a dating app and claimed he did not notice any damage to his car until the following morning.
Harwood apologised to Dylan's family from the witness box, telling them: 'I am so, so, sorry. He asked for a new charge of gross negligence manslaughter to be considered after new evidence emerged during the course of the week-long inquest. Dylan was a described as a talented and proud footballer, who represented his local team almost times.
