Sometimes you just need help. But often times making a new post isn't needed. For the time being, around launch and perhaps in the future. We will use a single thread for helping each other out.

ABOUT THE GAME
Phantom Liberty is a new spy-thriller adventure for Cyberpunk 2077. When the orbital shuttle of the President of the New United States of America is shot down over the deadliest district of Night City, there’s only one person who can save her — you. Become V, a cyberpunk for hire, and dive deep into a tangled web of espionage and political intrigue, unraveling a story that connects the highest echelons of power with the brutal world of black-market mercenaries.
Infiltrate Dogtown, a city-within-a-city run by a trigger-happy militia and ruled by a leader with an iron fist. With the help of NUSA sleeper agent Solomon Reed (Idris Elba) and the support of Johnny Silverhand (Keanu Reeves), unravel a web of shattered loyalties and use your every skill to survive in a fractured world of desperate hustlers, shadowy netrunners, and ruthless mercenaries. Built with the power of next-gen hardware in mind, Phantom Liberty offers brand-new gameplay mechanics, nail-biting courier jobs, gigs, and missions — and a thrilling main quest where freedom and loyalty always come at a price.

We always here of people getting their accounts hacked and the 1st thing in the comments is turn on 2FA well I've been using since it was an option and last night it saved me, I was watching TV and got a text for a security code for my PS account, so someone figured out my email & password to get that far, but 2FA saved my ass, so if you don't have it turned on here is another warning to encourage you to.
I have also changed the email address linked to my PS account and changed the PW.

I understand there is a lot of hype and buzz around this game but I really wanted to give another perspective. So I am a gamer, but I find way less games that actually "hook" me. This is one of those games.
My favorite games are tlou 1 and 2, red dead redemtion 2, ghost of tsushima, bloodborne and mass effect for single player and multiplayer id say hunt showdow and hell let loose. I have never enjoyed a turn based game and honestly fantasy games as a whole are sort of miss for me. I have sat in on a d&d game night with some friends but have never really participated beyond that. Buying BG3 was a very risky gamble for me as the only thing I knew about this game was that it was turn based and that it was getting very positive feedback.
When I first started playing, I was sort of disappointed. I was getting my ass handed to me, didn't understand mechanics and felt like I was struggling to understand story and lore. However, I stuck with it and now have nearly 90 hours in it. The story just keeps getting better for me. The characters are rich and the narrative is very engaging. I am already planning my next play through. When I am not playing, I am thinking about playing and reading lore online.
It has been a very very long time since I was this invested in a video game story.
If you are on the fence about this game, I defintely recommend picking it up!
Anyways, thats it. Happy gaming, everyone!

You have until Oct 20 for the Spider-Man 2 release. If you’re planning on getting it on release day, what games do you want to clear off your plate to make room? Here are mine:
Armored Core 6 - in progress. I was taking my sweet time but Oct 20 is closing in.
Lies of P - owned and unopened. Looking forward to this one but AC 6 is so good and I’m so bad at mech games.
Final Fantasy XVI - Bought it on sale last night. It’s on the way.
Elden Ring “spiked caestus run” - I will never tire of this game. This would be my fourth run. I’m currently in the Mountaintops. Spiked Caestus have turned out to be my favorite weapon ❤️
