When you are offered the change/upgrade augment the second visit to China what are the ramifications?

There's no actual change of augments involved. It's just part of the story. See for yourself. Tip: Read the E-Mails at TYM and Picus on your next playthrough to get a clue what the change/upgrade of the chip is all about.

We'd be doing you a disservice, as fellow gamers, if we answered that question.

Maybe it makes a difference. Maybe it doesn't. Find out for yourself; I'm not going to tell you. Play the game.

Ugh, really? Is everyone so afraid to make choices for themselves and face the consequences like an adult - in a video game? Is everyone afraid to play the way the game is meant to be played?

Okay yeah I'm being a crotchety old man;)

Then I'm one as well, since I agree with you and am actually old - although probably not older than POM.

There are no immediate consequences, but it might... disadvantage you later.

Really? Always had you pegged for a younger fellow (Granted, it's exceptionally difficult to tell on the internet; Typically one can only see if the person they're speaking to is extremely young by a lack of grammer or logic).

Anyways, make the choice for yourself, don't look it up. I will let you know that in my first playthrough, I elected not to go for the upgrade, as I had a bad feeling about it. That was just my thing though.

Oddly enough, IRL people still think I'm 10 years younger than I really am, even though the gray is pretty obvious in my goatee and hair. TBH, I just turned 47 years old. That may not seem all that old, but there are quite a few things I do and/or say that would peg me as someone much older - the aforementioned crotchety old man - but nine times out of ten, it's probably said tongue-in-cheek.

I also revel in my oldness. My kids are always trying to get me to use Just For Men to get rid of my gray, and I keep asking them, "Why?" (God, I love turning that question back around on them :D )

According to the TV commercials, it's so you don't have to be embarrassed about answering the door to an attractive young woman who just wanted to borrow some milk anyway. I have plenty of milk though and this is a situation I have never come across. Why?

Yeah, well... TV commercials have been known to be wrong. Frankly, I couldn't care less if I'm gray or not. Nice thing is, it's only about 20% for my hair - my temples and a 2-inch strip straight up the middle. For the goat, though, it's more like 50%, but I think it still looks good.

I've even had a couple cute young ladies (young = under 40 :D ) tell me they like the way my gray is coming in. Of course, they *could* be lying (no, I wasn't paying for them - I stopped paying for sex when I got divorced, now I'm just paying for the *results* of sex: three of them aged 14, 13, and 11), but I like to think they're honest enough.

But anyway, back on topic... what was it again? :scratch:

Ahem. FWIW, we (as in ladies) generally find the salt-and-pepper look to be attractive. Just so you know.

So I've heard. OTOH, it usually never goes beyond "That looks good on you." Not that I really care. I'm getting too old for that kind of thing. ;)

Just out of curiosity though - what about salt-and-pepper down to just below the shoulders?* :naughty:

Now i'm imagining you as a long-haired, more badass version of Paul Denton because of the goatee.

Damn. Your kids are lucky. Wish my dad was that cool.

No offense, but the Game drops plenty of hints at what the consequences may be.
Anyway, the consequences of that decision won't be gamebreaking or such, in other words, it still leaves open all possible endings and so on.

Never thought about it before, but yeah, if I could lose about 30 pounds, I might be able to pass for Paul. Also depends on his height - I'm only 5' 10" (and my oldest boy, at 14, is already 5' 11").


Damn. Your kids are lucky. Wish my dad was that cool.

I'd hardly say that I'm all that cool. They haven't played any of the games, so right now, they wouldn't know Paul Denton from Paul Reubens.

Gee, thanks... :hmm:

So are you by a 18 year olds standards! ;)

Mind you I am not 18, but point being we are all considered old (in most cases) by someone else at some point.

I like it. I am in the long hair on guys = good bandwagon. ;)
