I think it'll probably be insanely fun but the character models look weirdly PS2-era and it's putting me off

Maybe you should go look at some actual PS2 games

Any idea what Gat's skills are?

Shooting, stabbing, and his special is Flanderization.

Ok but what does that special actually do?

This game looks cool and good, though it's a little weird there's no co-op.

Doom '16 had a similar embargo and that ended up being awesome, but you're not wrong to be worried.

My hot take is, it can't be any worse than Gat out of Hell. And I didn't regret Gat out of Hell at all. If it ends up sucking at that level, I'm getting a physical copy, so I'll just play it through and sell it back.

From what I've read from a guy who has it, even if the story is poo poo the gameplay sounds really fun.

EDIT:

I'm currently at 94% completion with 75 hours in the game. Combat is the primary focus of this game and it's really addicting, the characters are all fantastic, and the map is just flat out beautiful. It gets my approval anyway. If there's anything specific you want to know about, feel free to ask. I plan on making in-depth reviews for different aspects of this game. So far I've only got one out about driving if you want to give that watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLQ8MSWXjUc

Gamespot just gave it a 4/10. 7/10 is a bad game these days.

Gamespot is not the only site that reviews games.

As far I can tell the synergy is just having diverse characters, so having a character good against shields, one good against armor, maybe one good at hacking, ect.

I preordered via digital download on Xbox. I take it you had to physically pre-order to get Gat?

From Gamestop, yeah.

Carnage a Trios (Braddock, Yeti, Daisy) is a really solid team.

It's so frustrating that the Relic trading stations reset whenever their corresponding outpost is taken by Legion. It just incentivizes you to get all 4 trading stations in one session, teleport back to the ark, and idle there for hours to farm money.

Got a fun bug where enemies aren't spawning in the Rama investigation mission, therefore rendering me unable to finish it.
And now also my HUD just decided to gently caress off for the day.

Yeah I've had missions bug out like that quite often, I had to restart from checkpoint to fix it.

Also I had a bug today where my UI completely disappeared and I had to close and relaunch the game to fix it.

Ohhhhh you can manually edit your character loadout at the bottom of the ship, next to the dark matter crystal. This whole time I've just been queuing into a mission and then backing out.

Yeti has a Panthro skin.

Oh I was wondering who that was referencing. Speaking of which, who is Fortune's cosplay outfit supposed to be?

Yeah Rama is Storm.

IIRC here are all of them

Hollywood = Iron Man
Fortune = Star Lord apparently
Hardtack = Luke Cage?
Braddock = Cable
Yeti = Panthro and Hulk and maybe Colossus
Daisy = Wonder Woman and maybe Red She-Hulk
Rama = Storm and Hawkeye
Joule = Harley Quinn
Red Card = ???
Oni = Joker
Scheherazade = Sub-Zero

I don't know if Kingpin and Gat even have cosplay skins.

Each agent only has one Elite Legion Tech right?

RatHat
Dec 31, 2007


Oni is really ridiculous with the Legion tech that gives his Intimidating Stare ability Disrupt. He's basically invincible against bosses/lone enemies.

SmallpoxJenkins posted:

I super enjoy how the game will just switch the difficulty level whenever the gently caress it feels like it.

Yeah I have that happen usually when I buy Super Agent levels.

With no way to show shards on the map I don't know how any sane person would manage to find them all.

RatHat
Dec 31, 2007


Nah, there are 350ish shards in the game. There's a counter on the Agency Progress screen.

I can't find a setup for Joule that makes her not a chore to play. She just always seems to do such crap damage.

Oni only really starts to shine once you get some good Legion tech for him.

Hey Volition if you want people to sit through the credits of your game don't put August Gaunt music over it.

drat that's unfortunate.

The lack of co-op probably did hurt sales numbers a bit but I doubt that was the sole reason.

Volition is kinda known for making good Co-op games, it wasn't really an unrealistic expectation.
