I decided to fire up this game today, and boy do I regret it! I don't know where my morning went!
Hehehe, I know that feeling. :-)
I wonder if you can upgrade the weapons as well?
Yes, you can upgrade weapons as well (there’s even a trophy for that). If you go into your inventory and check a weapon closely you can see what kinds of upgrades are possible and available. Depending on the weapon this can be ammo increase (bigger mag), faster reload, laser pointer, silencer etc.
As for the augmentations, I found that many of them are either rather useless or just "nice to have", such as looking through walls or being able to see the FOV of enemies. They don’t really change the gameplay for me (as a side note: I’ve completed the Missing Link without a single augmentation whatsoever on my first play through).
I’m the hacking, stealthy, knocking enemies out kind of guy so I have always focused on augmentations that helped me on takedowns and hacking first. Everything thereafter I choose when need arise. I usually end up with having plenty of praxis points available. So for example, when I end up having not enough space left in my inventory but I really, really want to take that juicy weapon mod with me I go to my augmentations and choose strong back to increase my inventory slots.
Knocking enemies out from behind, hacking your way through the game, finding alternative routes and staying unnoticed all the time earns one the most experience points by the way.
And in my opinion, Detroit really just is the introduction to the game and its mechanics. For me, the game always kicks off as soon as Jenson leaves Detroit for Shanghai. That’s the moment where the game really starts to unfold for me.
I forgot how much I liked the music.
Yeah, the music of this game is outstanding. It really adds to the atmosphere!
