Blood rain, giblets, and warm bullet casings
Mild, sharp, and sharper cheese tastings
Metal dudes shredding their taut guitar strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Well well well, if it isn’t the consequences of my own actions.

Based on the timing of this post I’m gonna say it was Steam maintenance since it hit me too, right as I dropped in a mission. Plenty of shit to give the game, but people not knowing about Steam Tuesday maintenance isn’t part of that shit.

How do you feel about the galactic war?

I really, really want to like that side of the game. I love the idea of players pooling together their tiny, individual actions towards a greater shared goal and what it can bring in terms of RP and immersion. Having new content gated behind community participation is an awesome idea, and I totally get the idea of simulating a...

I, apprehensively, hope it’s still just part of their growing pains. It boggles my mind to see sequels, time and again, leave behind good features and qualities that there were no reasons to drop. Load outs being a thing in HD1 but not 2 is frustrating. But I’m mainly referencing the galactic war. It was much less interactive on a granular level with no major orders or personal orders. But higher difficulties gave greater contribution to the war and you got a great sense of how your playtime actually affected the effort. Whether or not they are still tweaking numbers behind the scenes is debatable and they surely will never tell us since they love not telling us shit. But it really doesn’t feel like any particular time I play has any bearing on anything like it did in HD1. Best hope I can have is that we’ll get there eventually. Or maybe not and we just play this story out as they wrote it.

I can confirm the reports of the AMR scope being fixed are true. Why they never acknowledge this as a bug nor reported it as fixed is beyond our puny human brains. But that and the 30% damage buff makes AMR users happy pandas.

My brain has a bit of trouble comprehending every time I see this headline. Of fucking course friendly fire isn’t going anywhere. It’s in several PvE games and was a crucial part of HD1. Why is this even a sentence that was spoken? The bizarre effects of niche things becoming popular.

Old Time Rock and Roll by Bob Seger

Used to have a little toy guitar and would strum it while wearing oversized sunglasses with my favorite cousin while the song was blaring. Adults loved it

I had the California Raisins stop motion movie and watched it on repeat. Loved their versions of Heard it Through the Grapevine and Signed Sealed Delivered

Bout to be the most private site in the world if no one can make an account. If they think I’m going to keep checking daily to see when they’re “open” I’ve got some bad news for their future plans.

After hearing about Freetube, I finally set it up and was all on board, got it configured and then was deflated to see it apparently has no queue function? I use that feature on YouTube so much that I just had to stop using it pretty much immediately.

If I somehow overlooked that or it comes in a later development stage, I’d happily move to it exclusively.

Excellent, thanks for the heads up. Can’t wait to ditch the site.

Think you meant this for someone else. I see lack of suggestion algos as a good thing.

Never can tell what’s a bug and what isn’t with this game. But I sure hope that’s not one. The defense evac missions are so overtuned (possibly bugged themselves still without dev comment to my knowledge) that I’d venture to say anything 7+ would be impossible with even one modifier.

CH3DD4R_G0BL1N,
@CH3DD4R_G0BL1N@sh.itjust.works avatar

If you’re desperate enough and have a tough time getting a good group that can handle 7+, doing bug blitz missions (12min) is actually the way to go. The rock will spawn, you roll light for speed and hunt for it, which may take as much as all your time. Then use the emergency shuttle to extract immediately and bypass the extract chaos. This is a soloable, probably-not-going-to-complete-the-main-mission strat. Like I said, for desperation mainly. Your democracy officer does not recommend making this a habit.

I’ll give your absolute door-stop of a coworker the benefit of the doubt and say maybe he’s heard a common misconception that getting the snip lowers testosterone.

Sucks to be those misinformed idiots cuz it’s probably the best thing I ever did for my marriage and sex life in one cheap go.

I’m not normally into fantasy at all and I was gripped by Pyre’s story and characters. It’s a real testament to Supergiant’s writing abilities that I’d kill to see it picked up for a series by someone and it’s the game of theirs I most consider replaying just to spend time in the world again.

Nothing will kill my enjoyment of a show faster than the seemingly inevitable and obligatory musical episode. I pray it just stops at one since that’s probably my only hope.

A coop PvE game for two dads and three sons?
A shooter, preferably. Any recommendations, guys? The youngest lad is 10, so as little violence as possible. Thanks 😉

You can mod risk of rain for many more than 4 players.

Had you seen any of his other films? Lanthimos is an odd one you kind of have to take film to film. I liked lobster, thought the favorite was okay, kinda low key hate sacred deer while admiring some things about it, and loved poor things. I’ve never experienced that type of roller coaster with a director that has such a consistent style and voice.

I’m in the middle of watching Letterkenny on Hulu. I’ve been barely tolerating the 10 seconds of forced splash screens each episode that tell me I’m watching something on Hulu and the TV rating. The last straw that’s moving me to my own copy is Hulu’s sudden inability to keep track of my episodes watched. So if I don’t immediately watch the next episode I have to enter this repetitive dance of manually navigating to the proper episode next time or watching all these stupid splash screens twice and fast forwarding the whole episode in hopes it will save it, but usually it still won’t.

Figure it out.

Surprised to see wisecrack is still a thing after their enshittification. Good for them.

Not gonna lie, I’m a little concerned after this patch. I don’t think it’s entirely unfair to make comparisons to the first game seeing as it’s a sequel (up to you to agree/disagree). But with this patch especially, the philosophy differences between the two are becoming more apparent.

In 1, there was almost no primary that was useless altogether. Certainly no support or AT that was useless. And even at the high levels the armor spam wasn’t as ridiculous and we had more reliable tools to deal with it.

If they want things to be harder, why did they change the reinforce system to be objectively easier? That system change is my single biggest 1>2 gripe.

This after seeing one of the devs back this balance patch by constantly (and imo not so professionally, but I’m a boomer like that I guess) on Discord chide people not happy about the changes to “just go play an idle game” if they want an easy power fantasy cake walk.

Like I said, major concerns for me. The response to this will tell the tale. I never could get into DRG primarily because they seemed to prioritize difficulty balancing way over having fun in combat. Same thing with Deadlink which should have been a fave of mine. I really hope to not see HD2 go that route when I’ve touted HD1 as one of my faves and a contender for best coop game of all time for years now.
