Amazon fucked up today and listed the deluxe edition of the game for $10 and I was able to get it before they fixed it. Any tips for somebody who's never played Battletech/Mechwarrior stuff before?

Concentrate fire.
Flamers are really OP.
Getting special abilities like Bulwark for your mechwarriors are practically mandatory.
LRMs cause a disproportionate number of head hits, unless you edit the game's .json files.
Don't underestimate vehicles. Some like the Shreck, Demolisher, SRM Carrier, and LRM Carrier can really fuck you up.
Expect to be outnumbered on many missions, unfairly so (supposedly changed on the newest patch though).

Meh. Played the closed alpha and now the open beta. Not impressed. I keep running out of ammo, and I can't slay bodies unless I have ammo.

You spawn with one extra mag, so you have to go to an ammo box at a control point to get one more extra mag. Dead enemies drop like 5-10 rounds.

It looks pretty cool. (Upped the contrast and saturation for this pic.)

Otherwise the game kind of has the same problem as Farcry 5 where the contrast is too high. Everything is either blindingly bright or dark as fuck.

I have a few hours into it. It's basically PUBG meets STALKER(-ish). The player base is low and probably won't grow much due to negative reviews and the $20 initial price tag. If it cost less, or had more people playing I'd recommend it. But unless it grows or the price comes down, stick with PUBG. there aren't too many bugs, I've only had it crash on the menu a few times but no in game crashes at all. I absolutely love STALKER so I'll keep playing this for a few weeks and see where it goes.

Open beta is starting on May 8th but progress is rolling over into launch so it's effectively a full release. Preregistration gets you some stuff.
http://gf.sunborngame.com/

Essentially it's the usual Kantai Collection/FGO team management game but with a actual tactical layer where you set up squad formations (eg, Handguns are buffers, SMGs are tanks that buff ARs, ARs are DPS that buff SMGs, though there are some exceptions, M4 buffs other ARs for example) and move squads on a map. Duplicates can be "dummy linked" to increase the effective firepower of a unit.

Microtransactions are mainly limited to cosmetics. All the "important" stuff like more squads and production slots are obtainable to regular players, though whales will just get the stuff faster. And some of the low-level guns are more powerful than the rare ones, the 2* PPK is one of the best buffers in the game for example, and you get the unique "main characters" (M4, M16, ST AR-15, SOPMOD) early on as story rewards.

The basic premise is that in 20XX a alien virus wipes out most of humanity, and militaries start using androids to replace human soldiers on preexisting equipment, eventually one of the manufacturers had their brand of robots rise up against humanity.

tl;dr it's Kantai Collection but with depressed androids and actual gameplay.

>but eliminates 2* and possibly 3* drops.

No, just eliminates 2* drops, and doesn't guarantee shit else.

In other news, Multiple MGs in an Echelon make short work of S.F. T-Dolls, despite the Ammo consumption. They work best with Equipment Mods that lower their ROF, since their reload times are a set interval, so prolonging that inevitability is of great importance.

1. What do friendship points do?
2. Has anyone ever gotten a limited drop?
>> No. 59335 ID: df967d
>>59333
I think I've gotten a limited drop, maybe once.

Besides a measure of how much your waifus love you, affinity does have gameplay purposes. When it reaches 100, you can enter into an oath with the T-doll (you marry your android war slave and no doubt subject her to sexual slavery, you fucking degenerate). When you have an oath with a T-doll, the maximum affinity is raised to 150 and they receive a boost to certain stats. I only recently oathed my PTRD so I'm not sure if the boost increases as you go higher from 100 to 150. At the moment it seems pretty small.

Also, winning battles and tapping the little hearts or giving them presents in the dorm make your dolls affinity-ize your ass. Losing battles will NOT make them like you less. Affinity goes down when a member of the squad straight up fucking dies. If you have the option enabled, squad members will run away once they get down to 5 or 10% health or whatever. That's fine. If you enter battle with that squad again, however, you need to stay on your shit to make sure you withdraw squad members before they get killed. Whenever your dolls lose affection, they lose a lot. The girl who gets killed gets -10, everybody else in the squad gets -5. So it's worth it to make sure your girls don't die.
>> No. 59337 ID: 8fc875
No, like the friendship points you get for liking dorms and deploying support echelons?

Do they do anything?
>> No. 59338 ID: df12a0
>What do friendship points do?
You can spend them in the "Friendship Store" located under the "Friend" tab. You can buy different backgrounds for the main screen, and profile icons for your player ID card.

...essentially, they're useless.

I'm hyped for it, though somewhat worried my crappy 750 Ti won't run it since it had trouble with Doom 2k16, but as I recall Machinegames did a great job optimizing TNO so I'm still optimistic.

Seems like its launch was not exactly a success. (saleswise)

Yeah, technical issues apparently because of course Bethesda skimps on QC. Though IIRC TNO didn't sell that hot on release either and was more of a slow burn.

Friend got it on PS4 and says it plays fine on it and is fun though.

I was hitting it pretty hard a few months ago. A couple major updates ago they fucked the servers and netcode and I've put it down for now until they get it unfucked. Last major update also turned hitboxes and scav AI into utter shit, so...more stuff to wait on getting fixed before I pick it up again.

  So, I'm amazed that there's never been a thread on this, but anyone else playing PUBG? It's full of bugs and problems and needs a lot of work, but I'mr eally enjoying it even after several months of playing it almost exclusively (Destiny 2 is now a distraction too. But that's another thread.)

I play with Chairsoft, Jack Burton, NLA (Baughb in video), and my roommate Malevoiy on a fairly regular basis, usually at least one night a week on the weekend.

I'm pretty bad at video editing and as a group we're definitely not top tier by any means in the game, but we have fun with it and I had fun cutting together a music video.

Play with a few friends a couple nights a week, somehow have 350+ hours now lol.

Got bored of playing solo a while ago, but still have a lot of fun with duo and squad. Getting excited for the new map as I've landed just about everywhere on the current one.

Love the randomness of the loot, seems games where we find jack shit we survive the longest and have the most fun.

>Love the randomness of the loot, seems games where we find jack shit we survive the longest and have the most fun.

Same! Had a GREAT fuckin squad firefight on the east bridge. Got set up to camp it with only a mag or two each for our rifles thinking we'd resupply off the dead. Well, somehow we ended up pinched between two squads who dismounted to fight and maneuver on us rather than trying to power through the ambush as most do. Ended up being a long drawn out fight as we conserved ammo and tried to push off one end of the bridge without getting rolled by the guys behind us.

We were dead as fuck by the end, but we held out a good 10 minutes or so. Was so low on ammo I was using my Glock on people that were getting too close for comfort. Even downed a couple that way. We all agreed it was the best gunfight we'd had in pubg in a long time, if not ever.
>> No. 59287 ID: 764560
>>59185

Same here. If we find a mother lode of loot and no resistance in the early game we're sure to get ambushed and slaughtered or pushed into bad zone position and killed between other squads. When we just have a decent gun, enough ammo for a couple reloads, and a handful of medicals, we're hitting top 10 or sometimes the dinner.

Same goes for my solo games, just won a duo round when my random teammate got killed right after drop at school apartments. Took out those guys and played a slow methodical game. Stalking duos and ambushing at the opportune moments when they were loading in cars and distracted with fire fights. Had a 9 kill win game alone. If they'd just fix the bugs this would be my personal 10/10 game. Its ARMA battle royale style.
