dude this game is just waaay too hardare you just supposed to do the beginner missions for hours until you can buy better armor or something? wtf
>>5358652odd question but how old are you?
>>5358660ah well that explains it
>>5358652Use the cheat code and do a run with the money cheat.
>>5358652>are you just supposed to do the beginner missions for hours until you can buy better armor or something?Yes.Aside from that: If you go into hacking (Which you should as samurai), then the most important thing is to get your evasion up, or else you wont hit shit in matrix combat.
>>5358652Hacking missions are the only ones worth doing. The pay is so much higher for those than anything else.
>>53588062IIRC, the big pay out in matrix runs is selling stolen docs unrelated to the run itself.
>>5358843Err... I meant >>5358806
>>5358753>>5358806>>5358843That makes sense, I've barely tried to hack the matrix
Are you upgrading stats in hotels? Did you pick up a new weapon yet? Hiring other runners?
>>5358652It's supposed to be more of a classic RPG, one that can take forever to finish.That's just what it is, if you want a more newer quicker experience play the Snes one.
>>5358652This is definitely a question that doesn't deserve it's own thread.
>>5358652The game starts out pretty unfair because the game mechanics for SR2e have been more or less ported over into the game in their entirety. In an actual Shadowrun campaign, you wouldn't be started out at this low of a street level at least in terms of your character's skill.That being said, doing Gunderson runs are still some of the best ways to make karma, if you're taking into account of how fast you're running them. After getting your karma up and increasing your stats, work into doing simple level Matrix runs. You can easily get 500-600 nuyen just from completing the run, and you can get extra files and sell them to Roscoe downtown for potentially thousands more. You'll want a good deck and either have yourself be a great decker, or hire someone for you that can deck really well. Phantom over in the Renraku bar is a good starting decker.After that you can either move up to harder matrix runs (which will require an even better deck and skilled decker) or you can do Extraction runs, where you're breaking into some of the Big 10 corps and stealing shit. I wouldn't try those for now since they are a bit more complex and you'll need a fully loaded team for success.Hopefully that should help you out, just don't get discouraged if you're getting wasted early on every 5 min because that's how the streets roll.Oh, and don't do business with Vigore and Jarl.
>>5358652Starting out is a bit of a slog, yeah. Love this fucking game though.Ferry some dweebs and packages around for a bit, buy a better gun and then go blast some ghouls (only for more than 60Y a head). Get a better deck and then do matrix runs, as >>5359326 says.
>>5358652Sell the unnecessary equipment you start with so you can hire other runners temporarily and sell their equipment to get a push out the door.
>>5358652It has been a while since I played this but I remember the game getting more difficult as you get better equipment.Like once you spend a ton upgrading all your programs and gear everything will get harder to make it more or less obsolete.
The start is a bit of a slog, so save up to buy a predator pistol for self defense. As said the matrix will yeild the most money period.
I love this game, but it is one grindy fucking game. Early game is especially soul crushing. Just use ABACAB to get some starter money, and maybe a few more times for starter Karma. Don't forget to keep some junk programs handy in your deck for tar paper and tar pits, or you'll lose more on replacing the good program that got eaten than you'll take on the entire job.
>>5358652Beat this game back in the day but it took months on and off. It IS hard, but worth it. Fun as hell.
>>5359908You can skip all of the grind if you know what you're doing.
What's the difference between this and the SNES one? Which one is better?
>>5364410This is an action game with RPG elements and a very very very long grind to reach the end. The SNES one is an action game with adventure elements. They are two different games. Whichever one you like better you mong.
>>5358652>ABBACAB startDo it at the tittle screen
>>5364548It's weird. I haven't played this game in over 20 years, but for some reason I still remember this code like I had just blown on the cartridge yesterday.
>>5364706dude no one from the nes era will ever forget up up down down left right left right bee ay select start
>>5359452Nothing, that weird fucker is likely very lonely and well past his mid-life with nothing to show for it. Spends his time on anime boards throwing ambiguous shade at people like he's some fucking entitled video game elitist. They don't have any real argument pre anything to say. I'm sure his childhood was rough and his mom smoked during pregnancy. Ignore and move on anon, don't give them the satisfaction their depraved lives need to continue.
