*Spoilers*, Tips, and "Hidden" stuff
This isn't for you if you don't like spoilers so stop reading now.

This is for you if you don't want to play multiple times to know what happens in different conversation options, if want to know if you missed something, or something is bugging you and you can't figure it out

Purchasing
-I think this applies for all steam purchases but if you can't get past purchase pending just wait two hours

Game errors
-If you get a black screen or a white screen and you can't do anything try disabling the in game steam overlay

Gameplay
-Leylines - if you can cast spells step on those white circles to cast them. Better cool down and I think possibly more damage with the larger circles
-Change difficulty options in the main menu
-Smartlink reduces aim penalties at longer ranges
-Biotech, Etiquette - corporate, and etiquette- gang comes up a lot (so far)
-your team members can now help with decking conversation options

Mansion
-The locked door in the south can be unlocked by monika at a computer at the southwest. It gives you pay data. Not sure what it's for
-Decking and Biotech doesn't seem to be able to do anything differently with Monika, but it gets Eiger to be less aggressive when you talk to her later
-You can't kill the orc with the mini gun but you can make him run away quicker
-Dietrich can summon a spirit in the north corner that can keep the orc busy even if the spirit escapes

Kreuzbasar
-Willpower lets you read glory's aura, but not sure if any of the dialogue options lead anywhere besides story
-Elves don't get any better options with the drug dealer just different conversation
-Biotech 3 gives you a free drug dealer special potion and I think $50
-The drug dealer potion can be turned into the doctor to be analyzed. Not sure what happens
-Not sure if this is true, but offending the gun merchant and then having etiquette - street (?) seems to get me extra items (? pretty sure this armor wasn't here before)
-Tipping the dancer doesn't seem to do much, but I haven't tipped her much
-At the magic shop you can resist the eyes if you have Willpower (4?) but it doesn't really do anything
-If you buy turkish coffee at the coffeshop you get an actual mission item instead of nothing like when you buy soykaf. I'm assuming you can give it to somebody later for something
-Having 1 point in decking gets you more money after you complete the 3 data taps with the coffee shop owner ($100, $150 with 3 charisma, $300 with 3 decking)

Drugpit
-I don't think all the locked doors can be unlocked
-3rd floor admin computer password is admin
-1st floor computer password for safe can be hacked by blitz after you meet him.
-4th floor bathroom can be unlocked by something you pick up on one of the floors. Don't remember which floor. it's not much anyways
-pretty sure buying the party girl cram doesn't do anything, but i think you get free cram somewhere later
-skip the 2nd floor. you can get to it better by a hole in the 3rd floor
-you get 1 karma for having intelligence 3 by talking to the frightened man

You get 1 point of karma for passing this skill check.

You can give it away to a man who sell to you a DVD player, instead of buying.

i guess its kind of save scumming but after awhile i just left a bit of karma left (like 10) that i didnt use to upgrade in case I found a conversation option that made the upcoming battle a lot easier or provided some good stuff. made things a breeze

it was pretty helpful in the one where you storm the power company

Yeah, always do so, for exploration reason.

I dont see saving and loading before conversations as 'save scumming', maybe not the most diehard RPG gamer purist thing, but unless it involves quick saving and loading for best combat results, it is AOK in my book.

to an extent anyways.

for RPGs like this, I always have a mental image of my character's background and how he would react to situations, so I tend to redo conversations trying to get the conversation string closest to how I imagine it should be going.

Believe it or not but the game explicitly explains all the stuffs you mentioned in gameplay section

There is an in-game help guide in SR
