At the beginning of the game, you have the option for three backstories for V, the main character. You can make V a nomad, streetkid or corpo. Your choice affects how the game opens and alters dialogue available throughout. Having tried streetkid when I demoed the game earlier this year, I sold out and went corporate.
If you choose corpo the game's opening scene will be V vomiting into a sink, mom's spaghetti style, at a big corporation's HQ. You get a call from a friend and talk to him about how nervous you are. As this goes on, a nervous suit walks into the bathroom. You have the option to either say nothing or aggressively ask what the orderly is looking at. Either way, he'll skulk off.
