Past a certain point it doesn't really matter, just choose what seems good until then.

Blaster/elementalist carried me through the game, with a punch move from one of the fourth tier classes.

Interesting, playing medium difficulty I thought it was pretty straightforward since it's just one target the whole time. I by far had the hardest time with the Stick of Truth version of the boys

Captain Diabetes was in my party as much as possible.

It seemed that using all relics that boosted Ultimate Recovery and/or Ally Health comboed with the Psychic Ultimate (and later all the standard Plantmancer skills) trivialized the combat completely.

By the end I was pretty much using Call Girl, Captain Diabetes and Mysterion all the time.

On day 2, using the Blaster's Hadoken, and the "Confuse one enemy in range", "Damage and Defense Down in an X pattern" from Psychic, with the Psychic's Ultimate. Pretty much steamrolling everything, while not as simple this one seems just as easy as SoT so far.

Is it normal for the cats to disappear? There was one in a tree that I hit the branch but now it is gone and this is the next one BGA told me to find. There is a static thing on the branch now, though. I am guessing some hero will have the ability to put things back the way they were or something.

This is what I ended up doing. Psychic shield, Elementalist heal, Plantmancer roots. Captain Diabetes is strong because he can self shield while doing damage. Call girl can hit almost anywhere on the screen and taunt when you need it. Mysterion just does a lot of damage and is still useful even when he's dead. Psychic ult is always valuable unless your team is all full hp and full shield which is not likely.

I've got 12-something hours clocked finished day 2, this is already longer than I would like. I'm enjoying it waaaay more than Stick of Truth but that was a beautifully paced 8-ish hours.

I wouldn't have wanted the game to be any longer than it was.

Of course I just got it from the Redbox and knocked it out in three or four days, so I didn't really have a concern about cost/hour of entertainment.

Let's talk about where you're going.


Found an annoying bug (PS4 version) where every time you back out of the bank dude's money wheel game, you lose one income level. You still get the achievement for getting to 0.01%, but you can never take a selfie with him because when you leave the game you drop back down to 1%.

Also ran into a super-annoying unwinnable loop with the Morgan Freeman fight. New Kid and Cpt. Diabetes were KOed, Mysterion was a ghost, and Call Girl was charmed. Freeman had 700 hp left. Freeman would pass his turn, Mysterion could only do one of his haunt attacks, then Call Girl would pass. Freeman would immediately charm Call Girl which is 100% effective against her I guess. As soon as I had meter, I'd res Mysterion, but then Freeman would just bitchslap him to death, Call Girl would pass, Freeman would charm, ad nauseum.

So loving annoying.

I had that happen as well. Only difference was that it was the New Kid that was continually getting charmed by Freeman. In the end, I managed to defeat him by doing a time pause fart when I was able to do it, and hitting Freeman for about 500 damage at a time before I got recharmed. Took about 8 turns of that to defeat him, while dead Mysterion just hosed around doing ineffective moves on Freeman (as I found it was pointless resurrecting him as he just got instakilled next turn).

Yeah no kidding!

So in doing the mission at the end of day 2 (infiltrating the base), what happens if you go with Kyle on the roof? I found a side door, then went up there, assumed he was asking me to do whatever because it was the mission critical path, then went through the side door. The side door ended up leading me to the end of the level, and I even got texts from Kyle specifically saying "Hey are you coming to the roof?" and then "Fine, don't meet me on the roof, whatever, I'll see you later"

Are there two ways through the dungeon or did I miss something cool?

Managed to get the Farts over Freckles achievement - it wasn't all that hard but one wrong move does put you at pretty serious risk of your entire party being wiped out. In the end I had him down to about 1000hp when he wiped all but the New Kid out and I barely survived the direct hit he laid down to follow as his second move. That left me space to rez the party with my Ultimate (thank goodness) and put him down fairly easily.

Just The Token Experience left to go now.

Has anyone seen the Towelie gaming bud thing? I never saw him other than his small part in the the clinic. He's supposed to be pre-order DLC but nothing ever happened.

E: forget it. After looking at pictures, it seems that my copy didn't include him. It had the season pass and stick of truth but the towelie DLC wasn't there. So that explains that. Hmm...I wonder how I can get it.

E2: found it on the PS store and it was free for me to DL. Whatever. So, check the store and see if you can get it for free.

Has Not Actually Done Cocaine


Just bought this yesterday, although since I never beat Stick of Truth the last time I played it I'm going through that game first, which leads to the following 2 questions;

1) I know the game is divided into days, any content I should be aware of that is limited to specific ones?

2) Summons; so they can only be used once per day, but can't be used against bosses, so I'm wondering if there's any real reason to use them, cause so far all the fights have been pretty easy, even the singular boss I've fought so far(that group of Mongolians at the end of the City Wok quest), admittedly I'm still pretty early in the game(still need to bust Clyde out of detention) so that might change soon enough

The only thing that might catch you off guard is that some quests only trigger if you go into the location the NPC is in and speak with them, but the actual main storyline is likely to bring you into those areas anyway. I didn't encounter anything that cut me out of achievements/quests etc like Stick of Truth had, the only exception being a quest in the police station to hand out headshots for the police psychologist/counselor has to be delayed until after night 3 because the police are told to shut you out but as the storyline develops you get access back.

Your experience may vary, but I found that the difficulty picked up a bit around night 3 or so and the summons became handy though not necessarily required at that point.

That one is especially confusing because you get the ability that lets you complete the quest at the exact time you get locked out of the ability to turn the quest in. Seems like something that got messed up in development or was just poorly designed.
