Re: Cyberpuink 2077

They've stopped the embargo on both and we're already getting the deets about what it's going to be like: Update 2.0 * New Skill Tree * Cold Blooded is no longer a thing * Crafting is no...

It's a reference to Baphomet. The RL slander used to frame the Knights Templar. Ah, Okay. I'm not that familiar with Baphomet (mostly familiar with his D&D incarnation) and while I knew the Templars were slandered, I didn't realize "sexy goat demon" was the specific baddy used. Well, ...
