      Yeah no. The game retconned him into a pushover. Anime Adam Smasher is 100% tabletop-accurate. AKA: Turns you into meat to fuck.

    I disagree in one thing. Every game that gets a stand alone anime about the game NEEDS an expansion where the anime is playable in the game.

    But let's face it, the Cyberpunk anime was only good BECAUSE it had nothing to do with the sjw trash "story" of Cyberpunk.

    Then in the other side there's 343i Halo. Which needed a few books for Halo 4, a lot of books, some miniseries and even some podcasts for Halo 5 and at least 1 book and 1 RTS game for Infinite, being not as bad as the previous 2 main games, but still suffering from the same issue.

        Idk, but that's one of the reasons why the Halo fanbase hate Frank O'Connor, besides other controversies.
        Bungie almost didn't give a shit about the other media, retconning a bit of the story in "The Fall of Reach" while doing Halo Reach, for them mostly the games were the only canon, while for 343, every piece of media is canon in some way.

    Fucking Adam fucking Smasher (rest in peace e-boi waifu) god I replayed that mission just so I could kill that sexy monstrous hunk of metal piece of shit over and over again.
    Also it's kinda ridiculous how canonically strong V is. Smasher decimated the entirety of David gang without even breaking a sweat, killed silverhand, went toe to toe with blackhand, didn't lose and survived.
    And then died in a 1v1 against V.

      V was already canonically a strong Solo that somehow reached his 30s, and gets stronger with Johnny
      He gets a Doom Slayer style theme even

      The problem is that Adam Smasher should use more tricks and be stronger
      Also the broken damage scalings

      Yeah, the game ruins the lore and setting of the universe.
      V should just be retconned honestly, he's far too strong for the universe he's in.

      He's practically fucking superman compared to everyone else with not much explanation whatsoever why he's that strong outside of "well duh he's the vidya protag he has to be".

    It's pretty good, but nothing groundbreaking. The best thing it does is not be completely retarded.
    The story is pretty basic. The Arasaka cyberskeleton thing was disappointing. I was hoping the main character would turn into some creepy cybernetic skeleton mindfuck, or something else interesting, but he just got turned into a quad amputee attached to an industrial robot and then the rest of it from that point onward is just a giant Bollywood action sequence.
    The whole thing just felt like fanservice. I'm ok with fanservice as long as there's something bold and surprising in there as well, but Edgerunners didn't really provide that.

      Don't listen to this anon who obviously didn't check out the dub and just goes by his arbitrary rule. I watched it twice and dub is objectively better as there's a lot of slang used that simply isn't there in the sub. The voice acting in the dub is slightly better too, imo, but mostly it's the different slang that doesn't get translated into the sub.

                I agree. Go watch interviews on it, they expressly state it was for girls to get the same row row fight dah powah feel that guys got from TTGL, but it was made with general audiences in mind. Thats why they went with all the fashion elements intentionally, it was to try and hype girls up, get them excited about something, anything.
                Remember these studios are comprised of older people now concerned the next generation is lacking that oomph, its a very common trend in japanese society right now.
