View Full Version : List of All Side Quests? *NO SPOILERS PLEASE*

08-25-2011, 06:18 AM
Does anyone know if there is a complete side quest list/guide yet? I looked at the wiki but it didn't seem to be complete yet.

If not, could someone tell me if I've done all of the side quests in Detroit? The ones I've completed so far are: Paging Adam Jensen, Motherly Ties, Cloak & Daggers, and Lesser Evils.

I thought that was all of them in this area of the game. I was about to advance with the main mission by going to China, but the game gave me a warning message saying that if I left all unfinished side quests would be failed. Does it always say that regardless of whether or not you've completed everything anyway?

All of these quests have began with a cutscene and a new character introducing themselves to you. I did just meet Taggart on my way to talk to Sarif. That seemed like the prelude to a side mission, but nothing has followed it. Also there the part of the main mission where Pritchard asked me to question Sarif. I did so and he said he would look into it further and let me know if he found something.

So that's basically my whole situation. Have I just not given the game enough time to initiate the next phase of some of these quests. Or am I supposed to leave and these plot lines will develop when I get back from Shanghai? Any help would be really appreciated. NO SPOILERS PLEASE!

I asked for a list of the side quests. Giving the names of them wouldn't give any spoilers by themselves. That's what I meant anyway.
