Would have been nice if the Nihil fight (and puzzles) was in an environment, that didn't trigger severe vertigo. Whatevs, not much of a loss, narratively or loot-wise.

Now to wait for DE to pull their finger out and deploy another intermission, so there's more of an incentive to do the NW challenges.

So, I've been playing Deep Rock Galactic lately. Still trying to drum up the courage to put myself out there for multiplayer though.

Good game, been playing it a bunch with a mate. Find some friends for it, definitely a game that works best with communication.

What class do you like?

Still working on the whole 'finding friends' part of that equation...

As for what class, I'm liking the Engineer. I've always been fond of 'building' classes.

My power and internet got knocked out by a hurricane so that's my excuse.

It's all back now though. So who wants to find a beehive of a thread and punt it just to see what happens?

Ha, well if you ever want someone to play with and it can be arranged, I'll be more than happy to play.

Engineer is good. Was expecting you to say Scout, who's nice for solo play but pretty useless (imo) for multiplayer.

Mask mandate in stores and registered infection numbers x2-2,5 times those in the spring and rising. Things are getting a bit intense here. Granted, a lot more people are getting tested, so... And Covid-19 related hospitalizations aren't proportional to infections, so we're probably seeing a less severe mutation in circulation by now.

Catching up on some podcasts while grinding:

 

Stay safe.

Eh, the next Warframe revised is coming, I think that'll do the job well enough.

I'll keep the offer in mind, thank you.

I've heard he's often used for mining up Nitra for resupplies, going after some of the peskier bugs, reviving, and keeping an eye out for Bulk Detonators. Generally being Boscoe.

 

Speaking of Bulk Detonators, this is a meme detailing my recent experience with them:

I do all that as Gunner, just better. Better Zipline (as far as multiplayer goes), autocannon, guaranteed revive with the shield, autocannon, complete deletion of everything with his autocannon and, most importantly, autocannon.

Not sure if I've made it obvious enough, but I like the autocannon.

You'll get worse. I had one mission start with about 3 minutes of non stop panic. The sort of panic where you need to take a deep breath at the end of it and can feel your heart slamming.

Grabbers, Cave Leechs, Crassus, swarms of Grunts and Exploders, all right as we walked off the Drop Pod. Every room we ran to in blind panic had something else to cause an "oh S#&$" moment.

They say that, when a gun is not enough to prevent a giant space-spider from eating a structurally-superfluous new behind, then the answer is to use more gun.

But, what sort of more gun? Additional gun? or bigger gun? Is it better to avail yourself of four barrels of automatically-aiming death and one of your own? Or to equip two barrels which fire explosive rounds with ever-increasing pace? 

This requires further testing.

Ah.

Good to know I won't be sleeping after I play this game.

That one. Bigger gun. Then you overclock it for bigger explosions.

Your guns may auto aim, mine simply doesn't require aim :D. Just roughly fire in the general direction of enemies. Only problem is all the big bugs have explosion resistance.

Have you tried the Haunted Cave modifier?

May I offer you a Breach Cutter - AKA purple BFG in this trying time?

I have not.

I have heard of what is contained within and have been avoiding it out of fear.

Oh no no, it's good fun, give it a try. Even better, do it in Lethal difficulty. I promise, totally a normal mission.

Man I'll never understand why there are people who believe that something in a game that is so bad it might as well not exist is a good thing.

Not even talking about Warframe, I've been trawling around some other game boards and when some people ask "Can this be a bit better? It kind of isn't working for what it is supposed to do" they unironically get responses of "Shut up it's supposed to be bad noob!".

Not things like starter gear or low level stuff or even outright joke items, things that technically should work but due to design issues or other things doing what it is supposed to do as well as it does or better don't.

Leaving things unusably bad on purpose and demanding that something stay bad because it always has been just gives me a bad taste in my mouth when it comes to games, I don't get it.

Tried it on Haz 3 (since I'm not good enough to even reliably do haz 4 solo yet) and

 

I died to a normal grunt running back to the drop pod.

I would scoff like I said, but instead...

"Rock and Stone, brother!".

Ouch, normally I die due to being an idiot. Throwing myself off a cliff or standing on the Ommoran shell. I always run the active perk that allows me to blow everything up whilst downed, so my mate can always revive me.
