Regardless of its present points, there is no such thing as a denying that Cyberpunk 2077 boasts a powerful quantity of story content material. From mainline missions to facet jobs to gigs, there’s a lot to do storywise and so many alternative methods to play every one in all them.
Whether or not you’re in it for the dialogue, general narrative, and even simply the gear and rewards you get for finishing them, there are only a few quests in Cyberpunk 2077 we don’t suggest you attempt not less than as soon as. The facet job often known as Candy Goals is the principle exception to this rule, as we advise you downright keep away from it altogether.
Candy Goals begins out as one of many random facet jobs you possibly can stumble throughout when traversing Night time Metropolis. To be precise, you’ll discover it proper exterior of the No-Inform Motel.
You’re solely goal is to satisfy up with a mysterious consumer. Arriving on the resort brings you nose to nose with Stefan, a black market braindance vendor providing you a virtu so good that it’ll make you “transcend.”
The catch is that he requires 16,000 eddies to get your arms on this as soon as in a lifetime expertise. The truth that you possibly can’t discuss him down off this must be the primary purple flag.
The second is that it’s good to shill out one other 4,000 eddies for the tools if you happen to don’t have excessive sufficient ability. When you do find yourself paying Stefan, all it will get you is a one-way ticket to an ice tub. Congratulations, you bought conned.
However the worst half isn’t that you simply bought conned; it’s that the remainder of the search is pointless. You’re solely goals are to sneak and retrieve your tools down the corridor – which is non-obligatory for some god terrible purpose – and escape the scav hideout.
You don’t get something out of Candy Goals. It simply finally ends up being a waste of time.
Certain, all quests in Cyberpunk 2077 are a waste of time when it comes right down to it – normally, video video games have all the time been good time wasters. The distinction is whenever you invested time into a number of different quests within the sport, you not less than bought one thing of worth from it.
It could simply have been that the motion was thrilling or that you simply loved the storyline occurring within the quest. The purpose is that you simply had been having fun with one thing.
With Candy Goals, there’s nothing to get pleasure from, because it options no fascinating dialogue or selections, memorable motion sequences, or perhaps a satisfying decision. All the search finally ends up being is a 20k quick journey to struggle Scavs.
Candy Goals serves no function aside from an “oh look, that’s the place we discovered Sandra Dorsett. It seems to be like the identical factor ended up taking place to me too, lol.”
On the very least, it ought to have had some narrative threads to justify what it put the gamers by means of. Add in an additional dialog or perhaps a small questline with Sandra or have it finish with Stefan escaping and proceed the story with one other quest.
As a substitute, Candy Goals ends with you confronting Stefan, who swears he didn’t have something to do with the defective braindance. To make issues worse, the one two dialogue selections V is introduced with permit him to get off scot-free.
After all, you possibly can kill Stefan when they’re strolling away, however it feels fairly empty. If we’re being trustworthy, although, it’s really a fairly becoming finish to such an oddly empty quest.
