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...
Comment by Abel2Disable on July 14, 2014 at 12:09pm
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.

Axe Lords & Axehead Army Round Table...!!

After hearing about the news of EBA discontinuing in about another 50 episodes I wonder how far into the future that puts us time wise. 

More importantly I am sad and to be very honest with you I feel like something great would die. This gaming community has more spirit and intelligent conversation to offer than any other..!

Heres what I think.....

We need to have an adobe video conference..!!


Thank you EBC Crew
