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?

What game are we talking?

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.

My life as a Sim (part 3)

So many things have happened since our last talk. I don't even know where to start. Well, maybe i should start with the good news...

Me and Maaike are expecting a baby. Remco Jr. is going to have a little brother or sister. I think it will motivate him to do better a little bit. He hasn't been doing too well at school. We try to stimulate him as much as possible. Help him with his homework, teach him about music.. you know. It's not that he's failing but he's no Einstein that's for…
