So you play some RPG where hacking is one of the career options - just to get murdered in the first major skirmish you can't hack around...

Perhaps the devs trying to send a message?

Shadowrun Returns - got to try it again tomorrow, maybe I was just a bit tired. However, IF a game offers different paths and one is not buffing damage, defense or healing, there should be ways to follow that path. A situation that just needs serious firepower alone is simply not fun and there should be means to avoid it.

For me it was Deus Ex HR where it happened something like that... first boss battle...

So is it any better a day later, or is it determined to teach you hacking is bad?
Comment by Equinoxe on July 14, 2014 at 1:04pm

I chose a stelth build in Deus Ex HR, but luckily had some heavy artillery with me (don't exactly remember what, but something beyond a mere pistol or assault rifle), so I kind of managed the boss fights (barely).

Hoped, that Shadowrun would do things better. Gonna start it up now, to see how I fare, after a dazed day of celebrating the world cup :D

Several tries and some crazy luck (rng taking half dmg or evasion) later I got through and actually reached a point where mercs are available. Hired some muscle. Next battle was easy peasy.

A new Era for the Show that's part Between Two Ferns part Tosh.0

You guys asked us to help you name the new podcast and I thought it was only fair I throw my two cents in since I have been listening and claiming that this is the best podcast this side of the internet click hole to all that would listen. Which aren't many, me and this show have that much in common.

So I when think AxeFactor, I think of something that started off classy and ends with plenty of knowledge and thought provoking convo but I also question what is was all worth when I wake…
