>You bought the MaiMai? Wow, I did not expect it to have a voice!
Well, in the interest of full disclosure, that's the only thing it says. You know how most (if not all) cars in CP2077 have a "startup sound" when you get in? "Konnichiwa!" is the Maimai's. :)
Also, I have to admit I half bought it because of Wakako's sales pitch. "It's small, but it has room for you, your gun, and some groceries, and what more do you really need?" You have a point, Madame Okada. You have a point. Although, do people in Night City even buy groceries? I mean, my apartment has a burrito vending machine inside it.
Which reminds me, it occurred to me the other day, as I was out in the absolute ass-end of nowhere and came across a row of vending machines--who maintains them? Does somebody in a jumpsuit come into my apartment every now and then to stock up the burrito machine? Or is it supplied by some kind of automated system built into the space between floors of the megabuilding? And what about the ones out in the Badlands, and wedged into the darkest, farthest alleys of the city?
Which, in turn, reminds me that one of my favorite little bits of worldbuilding in Fallout New Vegas was the discovery that there is actually someone (or, well, some robots, anyway) restocking the Sunset Sarsaparilla machines when no one's looking, and you're not out there drinking 200-year-old soda pop. :)
