Are you playing it, anon? It is a fantastic RPG/XCOM hybrid with tons of content, great gameplay, characters and soundtrack.Ask questions or discuss builds, waifus and whatever else comes to mind.
>>674665>Are you playing it, anon?Yes. Glad it seeming to become more well-known in general.
>>674665Bianca is for ___
>>674665Been a while. Did they add anything?
>>674774A new story stage was recently added with Giselle and Ray, more conventional compared to the horrors of Crabnam that the last few levels were.
>>674665For me, my favorite girl is Ray. Normally girls like that you think "she fucks old men for money" or "she is dumb and slutty" because of that looks. I don't remember the name, but they have tanned skin, bleached hair, blue eyes just like her. But she is a very sweet and lovely big-sister style girl and still hot but also cute.Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
>>674665Really excited to see if they thought of something special for the 100th update.We're at #98 now, so it's gonna be like 2 months until then.
The other thread is still in the catalogue you mouth breathing retard
>>674845To be fair its page 10 and autosage, can see how one would overlook it.

>>674665>>674665I was really disappointed when I realized there was only 2 tiers of classes since I reached the max tier 2 class levels in like 4-5 missions. The mastery system is really fun though, are there any masteries that increase mastery slots later on in the game? (not the TP total limit for each section, the amount of slots in each section)
>>675071>are there any masteries that increase mastery slots later on in the game?Yes
Before I pick this up, is there romance?
>I was really disappointed when I realized there was only 2 tiers of classes since I reached the max tier 2 class levels in like 4-5 missionsYeah you get to T2 really fast. You should still max out T1 though, but that doesn't last much longer. There's been mention that the devs want to add a third tier of classes, but I haven't heard anything specific about that.>are there any masteries that increase mastery slots later on in the game?Yup. There are a bunch of masteries that give one extra slot and two extra points for a specific category. It can be a bit of a puzzle to make optimal use of them but they're super useful.>>675119>is there romance?There are some mild hints of romance (like Heixing x Kylie but no actual romance at all.
Just picked this up recently, fun so far (just did the Sion solo mission where all the Alleys show up, to give an idea of my progress). Any tips for things to look for/avoid in the early game? So far I've mostly noticed the usual XCOM stuff (don't overextend and pull too many enemies, cover is good for not getting crit to death, etc) and that the free attack abilities (Forestallment, Counterattack, whatever Heixing has) are really useful.
>>675071>I reached the max tier 2 class levels in like 4-5 missions.How the hell? I am 45 hours in and have not even unlocked the tier 2 classes.Also holy shit the new captcha SUCKS
>>675071>>675434Nevermind, I literally just woke up and read your post wrong. In that case, I agree. The classes level up too fast for my taste as well.
>>674783The term you are looking for is probably "gyaru".

>>675298some of the shittier masteries are necessary for the mastery set bonuses and its pretty impossible to figure them out on your own since some of the set themes are kinda all over the place. might be worth it to experiment with some of the shittier masteries in order to unlock more sets. of course you could always just wiki them as well
Sometimes the shit breaks you
>>675298The early game isn't too punishing. Like you said, if you played XCOM you have a pretty good gist of it. But I'd advise against Counterattack. I also used it extensively in th eearly game, but that shit gives you a 30 wait time penalty, which makes it easier to get killed when surrounded by enemies. Also, experiment around with masteries as you see fit, equipping/unequipping doesn't delete them or anything and you literally never have to worry about those Training Manuals. Also, check out the food, some combinations give you stat bonuses.
Is getting into taming worth it? I've been running Giselle as a sniper and she's been doing amazing in that regard.
>>675521You can tame and use beasts even if you keep Giselle in the Sniper class. Some types can become pretty strong in their own right, and you can also spec them to support the summoner more passively. Perhaps most importantly, leveling up certain types of beasts can unlock certain masteries for everyone.
>>675521Even as a sniper she can deploy her own tank to go out and distract/draw out enemies.
>>675483Man, that was brutal. I really need to invest in better gear and rethink my masteries.
>>675521Absolutely worth it. Early on just getting a single Tima for her is enough to make a big difference (try to get a young one so you can evolve it yourself, it takes more time but it's worth it), and later on Drakis and Crabmits are completely insane if you can get them.I haven't used Giselle as a Sniper at all anymore in later levels since she can still snipe pretty well without the Sniper class, and her Hunter masteries can buff her traps and pets which makes them both super useful.Even if you do want to use her as a Sniper and not a Hunter, she can still tame regular animals which, if you train them up, are just as good as most of the legendary animals, or better since you get to choose their personal masteries while they're evolving. You don't get the masteries to improve your pets as a Sniper, but they'll still be strong if built right.
Anyone care to share their Kylie build?Really not sure what to do with her.Have her as a hacker right now with most hacker specific masteries.Move Protocol, not costing an action/Support Protocol costing only a single action, having a 100% to hack any robot, pretty good.Not sure what other mastery sets/masteries to give her though.
>>675635This is go for hacker build.
>>675635and here are skills and gear.
>>675538>>675534>>675562Thanks, I didn't realize that she could get the tame ability as Sniper. Apparently you have to first switch her over to the Hunter class in order to unlock it.
>>675298the amount of dudes you will fight will eventually get to like 100+, which is a lot more than in xcom. As such, you really need a plan to reduce AT, because even counters and forestalls add to AT.
>>675722Fellow Red-Black chad
>>675635I'm too lazy to craft her weapons, so I just use her to spam support protocol on Giselle as often as possible.
>>675635These are my builds for her. Not gonna claim these are perfect since Kylie is easily my least optimized team member, but they work okay.
>>675011Small indie dev team, please understand.
>>675119It's almost sexless.
>>675298>>675493Moves like Counterattack aren't so bad so long as you can reliably kill your attackers in one hit. The number of enemies you can do that to drops off as the game goes on, though, meaning you stack up 30 AT after 30 AT without the benefit of eventually thinning out the enemies causing it. It definitely has its place in the early game, but just know you'll have to change your tactics eventually.
>>676009It's still good in the late game, but you have to specifically build for it with masteries that refund AT. Albus is especially suited for counter builds IMO since his Master Swordsman class has pretty good support for it.
>>676009I quite like Counter Albus.Park in melee range, block everything, kill everything, heal while killing, end up in AT hell.Kylie used Wake Up.
>>676009>>676015>>676019Also fire cheese with Irene.

>>675544>>675483what mission, the one in which you have to rescue three squads of cops?
>>676329That what I assumed at first when I saw it, but he already has Heixing, and you get him after that mission.
>>674665Well, it’s not fantastic, I’d describe it as having a particular charm, especially if you like extremely convoluted plots.
>>675455I want so see Irene flex her biceps and humiliate me of having a more developed arm despite being way shorter than me.
>>675455>3. cool attack move namesShe's not the one yelling out her attacks like an anime character though. For some reason, Alisa is the one who does that.Fucking annoying to be honest, especially since her attack names are dumb. I refuse to use a counter build on Alisa just because I want to minimize the number of times she starts yelling QUICK SHAVING!!!
>>676195Usually I do just that and most games run fantastic, but this one lags and crashes
>>676444Not to rain on your parade, but I wouldn't count on her having monster arms. She uses kicks exclusively.
Do Forestallment and Counterattack work if a character's "main" attack isn't melee? I'm thinking of putting either of them on Ray so she can kick anyone who slips past my defenses in the face.
>>676729Generally, yes. Ranged characters can use melee reactions and vice-versa. The one thing to look for is in the attack's description: If it says "Responsive attack / Counter attack" you're good to go.
>>675455>>4. cute red panda pics
>>676787Take one look at this beast and tell me you aren't terrified.
>>676770I've actually noticed that line before and then promptly forgot it. Thanks, Anon.
>>676930The stance of a warrior.The eyes of a killer.
>>676727Just look at the art I posted dude, her arms are almost thicker than her legs and she is wearing pants.
On the fence between buying this or CoE4 and vanquish, sell me on it. I usually like tactical games, even nu-com, but sometimes the campaign map part frustrates me because I can't take it easy and do things at my pace, and they even make you lose missions because you can only pick one of many. Is there anything like that in troubleshooter?
>>677138Game is "comfy" in that sense. You can repeat any mission you want and, while some missions at the end are relatively hard, game isn't hard enough for minmaxing, just look how everybody uses different builds depending of their taste/favorite gamestyle. Also no permadeath.
>>677152I'm fine with permadeath and the game being hard, what I don't like is being punished because I wanted to play a mission instead of another one available at the same time while I had enough men to do both because lol one transport.If this game doesn't have that it's a good thing.

>>677164Its stage-based not strategic overmap with you reacting to pop-ups, and you can replay stages both 'main story' and side missions.
>>674665No because it refuses to stop crashing for me on linux. I'll get around to playing it probably if I ever get off my ass to make a VM for it.
>>676329>>676335Sorry for the late reply. It is the mission where you need to pacify a street. First mission where there are enemy snipers and you need to kill 9 of them, collapsed cars block the way and you have to go around and you have Jane as help. Hopefully this explains.But it was great in a way too, very tense+this mission finally after 45 hours got me into crafting weapons and mastery sets because I noticed "man, I really need to step up my game" and now I am stronger than ever.
>>677409Oh yeah, that mission took me several tries as well. At first I tried to blitz it but then they would destroy the police npcs while my party was all stuck on one edge of the map. I also kept losing key members to the snipers because I wasn't using smoke diligently and would get pinned down by other enemies before I could safely close the gap.
I HATE IMPULSE FIELD
>>677400Try d9vk and noesync flags. Or maximum settings.
>>677530Multihit attacks are invaluable because of this. Impulse Field only kicks in if the damage comes in one big chunk.
I'm 48 hours in... no Ray, no Alisa, no Bianca... harembros...
>>678086> no Raygit gud
>>678086But for real, if you this about it, it's insane. I played for 48 hours and still have not even unlocked 50% of the characters. But for some reason while playing Troubleshooter time just fucking flies so fast I barely even notice. And I am a mf that drops games fast.>>678088I guess I will focus a bit more in the red missions then, to progress a bit but I don't wanna leave all those side quests unattended...
>>678086>>678090The game is really slow-paced. You can speed things up by focusing on the story missions (and even turning down the difficulty if you want to get through them faster), but the levels are quite long and some levels, especially the violent cases, have more than 100 enemies to beat so it can take an hour or more for just one mission.
>>677409Yeah, I remember that one. I did it first try, but I only barely squeaked through it. The only units I had left at the end were Heixing, Jane, and a couple of cops. Fucking snipers, man.
>>678090Don't listen to him. Don't rush thevgame. Take your time and savour each mission. Your waifus will come in their due time.

Haven't played it in two years, any major changes?
>>679086Apart from a bunch of new content, nothing huge. Mechanically the game hasn't changed much in the last few years, just some fixes here and there and slightly improved translation.
>>679063Got completely BTFO after 37 minutes. Outskirt Road 112 is literally impossible for me to beat, I barely even finish 1/3 before everyone is dead. The amount of enemies is insane and they 1) stunlock me to death or 2) one-hit-crit me. Fuck this violent case bros, imma skip it for now. I know I could invest in Massiveness to try and counteract the stuns, but I don't feel like reworking my entire mastery board and I really think this would really help me win this because of said other difficulties. Oh well, I still got 9 side missions and the story ones left, gonna focus on those.
>>679116>1) stunlock me to deathVeteran>2) one-hit-crit meImpulse Fields
>>679116Like the other anon said Veteran is the proper counter to stun, placed on your melee fighters.Its been so long I can't remember which violent case Outskirt Road 112 is.But when it comes to them always remember you don't need to clear the whole thing to win, if things are going bad just take out a boss and retreat.When you defeat enemies you get information which gives you stat bonuses versus them, you also gain experience and new gear. Letting you basically 'chip away' at them over multiple engagements before eventually being able to just beat the whole thing in one go
>>678998she's tough as shit, the only real problem with her is she generally has low +hit. Prosperity + the one that drops your -at with every regen tick makes her the faster character I got as well as the free reactive heal if she gets focused. I even managed to fit mutant in her build so she has tons of buffs simultatenously.
Man, I kinda feel bad about killing them, they are not mindless beasts...
>>679145Altgough I guess if you defeat them it doesn't neccesarily mean they are dead, I defeated some spoonists bosses asses like 10 times at this point and they're still alive. I always thought some die, some go to jail and some just get away.
>>679145When you fight the frog clan it does begin to feel like you are committing genocide on struggling native american tribes or something.The frogs don't seem to cause as much problem for humans as the likes of the Timas or the Draki.

>>679617In the beginning, yeah. The cops are there to boost your power basically, but it might still be worth to take a look at your equipment and masteries.
>>679619Also holy fuck the mc is inaccurate as fuckIm fighting a fatso in a sidequest and I just keep missing almost every attack
>>679623Lmao, yeah but that fat fuck is somewhat of a "mini boss" IIRC
>>679627I dont see how the mc is able to beat him without over levelling

AAAAAAAAAAHGYARU-ONEE SAMA FINALLY JOINED THE GANG!But for real, her backstory was really sad (like a lot of characters desu). Especially that part where she couldn't get a job and then she managed to get one with a 50% pay cut only for that fat fuck to say "Hey, become a prostitute, I even visit you lots". But I'm glad she instantly shot that shit down. She is PURE! (canonically!)
Man, Sharky is like 300cm tall. He should ditch all this cult crap and join the NBA, that dude can dunk without jumping.

>>680136>bleached hairIt's her natural hair color though.
>>680139alright well take it up with the first dude, I was just quoting him
>>680094Sharky being tall as fuck is actually a minor plot point towards the end of the game.Actual spoilers: Carter kills Sharky and then uses Sharky's mask to take his place, which works because almost nobody knows what Sharky actually looks like, and Carter is also tall as fuck.
>>680136>the most universally applicable word is bimboBimbo would also imply she's dumb and slutty, which she isn't. You could argue she's naive, but not dumb and definitely not slutty.

Hey, when I have a repeatable (blue) quest and it says "NEW" and has a yellow font, what does it mean? I know it sounds really evident, like >It's a new mission, retardBut I am 100% sure I already did that mission because I always do them chronologically. Does this only mean there are new cutscenes there? But if yes, I always thought red missions are the new story missions.
>>680638> I already did that missionDid you finish it?They stay marked as new until you get a success.
>>680639Pretty sure I did, the only missions I start but not finish are very hard purple missions.I think it really just means "Hey, there is a new intro/outro cutscene here"
>>680136Secretly pure gyaru has been a fetish of mine for as long as I can remember, but everyone has this "gritty realism" shit now so no girls are virgins anymore.
>>680654There was nothing in the patch notes about it.If they add stuff, there's also usually no indication on the mission board.It's that mission where oyu have to exfill Lee the Trucker from the roof, where you first emcounter Tima.I think it can only be finished by moving Lee into the evac zone.Maybe some recent update broke it.
>Every single girl has 10/10 looks and 10/10 personalityHow the FUCK did they do it? I play and think "DAMN, I want to marry the cute but strong big tiddy tomboy Alisa!". Like 5 minutes later I think "Hold up, Bianca is really hot too, ahhhhh, I want a tsundere rich girl to bully me (constentually)!" Then I play some more and think "I take it back, Ray singlehandedly made me an onee-san loving gyarufag, I'll marry her instead". Then I play even more and think "Irenes sense of justice and autism are too fucking cute she is perfect, plus her backstory and loneliness is kinda sad I need to protect her". Then I keep fucking playing and think "tfw no mentally unstable loli Luna daughterwife". It just NEVER stops. And literally 3 minutes ago they introduced that blonde police woman, like give an anon a break. In 27 hours that chink character designer gave me like 8 new tags I browse nhentai by. I don't even look at 3D women on the street anymore, I just look straight ahead and I don't even want anything to do with them because they are 1000% inferior to the Troubleshooter girls in looks and personality. It's frustrating because of that and also the girls are not real, but I literally can't stop thinking about them and I played a fuck ton of games with a fuck ton of girls but no female cast made me feel THAT. Thinking about buying the artbook just for the girls, imagine paying for fucking jpg data but I couldnt find it anywhere and I need to look at them more. FUCK.

I have a question about the set we collect from quest.If I missed one part because I didn't saw the different color at first, am I fucked ?
>>681017Sorry, I was talking about the equipment part rewarded when we complete a quest, like the Trainee Gear. If by any case, I choose another reward than a part, will I be able to get it again another time or not ?
>>681048You can buy the recipes for those items for Valkyrie coins after you finish the relevant shop quests and then craft as many as you want.
>>681011I am not 100% sure, since I am somewhat new (55 hours in this game...), but with some quests you get "crafting recipes" for the set items, although I only saw them rarely. So my guess is, if you missed an item, you can get it back in the future. But others can probably say with more certainty.
>>681052>>681051Thanks guys, I'm relieved, I'm really in love with this game, it's really really fun, way better than XCOM
>>681011>>681052You can get crafting recipes for all quest items.Might cost you a few coins, but that doesn't really matter.They also introduced new tiers to the stuff a while back, so farming doesn't suck as hard in late game.
>>680177Before I got the game, I looked up some footage and art and immediately assumed Carter was Sharky because they're both flame casters and about eight feet tall. The biggest shock was seeing they were actually different people.
>>680268I assume it sounds a bit less silly in the original Korean.
>just got a quest to rescue Lee, the trucker for the fifth timeAt this point I might as well add him to the team.
>>681692I'd actually like a party member who had a 'fat' or 'big' character model on the team. Like the type you see on various criminal units.
>anne the 14 year old girl has the most detailed lips on the 3d model and she's always swaying her hipsWhat did the devs mean by this
>>681854I keep forgetting how fucked up south korea is
Wow, the difficulty really crank up when we first meet the White crew... I'm at chapter 4 with the Irene's day off where I have to save 7 civilians, and I had my ass totally blasted, even through the game was a breath until nowUntil now, I was focusing my gear on max speed and damage, but should I focus on more armor ?
>>682219The game tends to have a spike in difficulty every time a new gang is introduced into the storyline. White Tigers are the first big one, but the same happens for example when you start meeting Bicron bosses, or the clown dudes in Bianca's storyline.And yeah you should definitely invest in some defensive masteries. Early on you can get away with just killing shit faster than it can kill you, but once you start meeting melee dudes that take more than one or two hit to go down, snipers that trigger fire support off eachother all day long, etc. you cannot survive without good defenses on your frontliners.
>>682227>The game tends to have a spike in difficulty every time a new gang is introduced into the storylinePartly because they are stronger than previous enemies with new tactics/gimmicks you need to figure out, but also because of the 'intel' mechanic which means the more you beat foes the more information you gather on them giving you advantages in facing them in the future.
>>682219The virgin Angry Bulls vs the chad White Tiger[spoilers]AAAAAAH I HATE SNIPERS[/spoilers]
>>682219The Piercing/Blunt/Slashing Resistance masteries are great for that. Relatively inexpensive and boost them a lot.
>I will never cuddle with Irene on a cool, rainy day and feel her, certainly above average, body heat.
>>682311I only tend to have them on Giselle's tamed beasts, my actual character I don't have the mastery space to spare in their builds unless there's one empty defence slot left over and I've got no points left in it so I just slap one of the 0-cost resistance masteries in there to fill the space.I run dodgy glass cannons pretty much.
>>682325What kind of damage are bullets? Piercing?I usually get done in by some fag suppressive fire suddenly doing literally 5x the damage of everything else on the map.
>>682360Yes, bullets are piercing damage. You know what each stat does when you hover over it a bit.
>>682360Is that not just them managing to score a crit?
>>675635I have her as an engineer because the stronger attacks. Basically -most of- her engineer mastery sets + Awaken + Can't Wait Anymore.that way you can enter overcharge, double ult (consecutive attack), have your turn again because Deep Sea escape, and then either double ult again or reposition.Make sure you have consecutive attack (obviously) , nimble response attack (the set that reduces your AT whenever you use a responsive attack) and some other way of reducing your AT like Quick Grasp of the Situation or Best Condition, because she is kinda slow if she isn't proccing Deep Sea Escape or in the middle or the fray using Reactive Matrix ProtocolAs for gear you mainly want Perfect Draki Scale (less crit damage, immune to exposed and flanked) and Weight (50% extra damage on responsive attacks)
>>682368Good to know thx>>682372Maybe? I'm not sure how the damage mechanics work. All I know is that sometimes one of my characters gets wrecked out of nowhere, almost always by bullets
I was mindlessly browsing the screenshot section on the Steam page and spoiled myself that SPOILER DO NOT OPEN IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED THE STORYSharky is actually CarterReally sucks bros. Is this a big deal? I mean, of course I will continue playing and I'm not too sensitive when it comes to that despite my initial reaction, but still. Just see this as a PSA: Beware when browsing the screenshot section on the Steam page.
>>682549All I wanted to do was farm cute CGs of the girls...
>>682549It was already carelessly spoiled in this thread.And it matters less than you might think.A real spoiler would be telling who wins the game of dragons.Or who is secretly Ramjist since Chapter 2.
>>682559>is secretly Ramjist since Chapter 2.Bianca's cousin Yuri
>>682564> Her cousin is secretly her uncleNow that would be some M. Night Shyamalan twist.It's Lee.
26 hours into the game, and fuck, that first encounter with the White Tigers was brutal. Who did you pick ? Ryo or the Spoonists ?And fuck Fire Veil, honestly.
>>682549Once the story advances you can see that spoiler coming from a mile. Not a biggie.
>can't stablish any bonds with albus because he has zero extra affinities with othersWhy is he such a loner
>>682807He's their boss, there's always a distance professionally.
>>682807Albus is the easiest to establish bonds with (apart from Sion who's just a slut) since he gets a boost every payday.
>>682580ryo, its the one where its ryo, heixen, and (ray i think?) Just make sure your heixen is up to snuff and he can solo it while ryo hides in the cover.
>>682898>Albus has to be professional and not do anything while sion gets to fuck all the bitches
So when are we going to get to recruit the chainsaw loli?
>>682945Sion is a gay fuccboi
>>682950korea has not yet invented gay. that is why they can all dress in shit like fur and feather boas, it just means they are flashy.
>>682947Good ending: At update #100Bad ending: Never
>>676327The most recent version I can find is from May 2020, and the game seems to have gotten many bugfix patches since then. Is it still worth trying or will it be too broken.
>>683068Well I was able to transfer my save file from an older version to the steam version without any issues so its worth it just to see if you like the game or not. You'll probably missing out on a few features though (the pirated version I had was missing the entire bond feature, a lot of mastery sets, and probably a whole bunch of other stuff that I haven't realized yet)
This mission is fucking retarded
>>683166I had no problem completing it, didn't even have any citizens die.What is causing you such aggravation about it.
>>682549Thats not true though
>>683169Bianca and Alisa are being of a hindrance than anything, alerting ennemies without killing them because they miss half of their attacks.Ennemy gunners having Blood Thirst meaning they will nearly always act twice before you do.((((Impulsion Field)))))
>>683166That's exactly were I had my ass kicked for the first time in the game.So right now, I'm doing all the quests I can, create all the different mastery set I can and updating all my gear until I restart it. PS : If you go talk to Bianca and Alisa at the beginning of the mission, you will be able to control them
>>683166>>683181>>683297That mission is easy as fuck as long as you take it slow and don't aggro half the map like a retard after you get to the open area.As long as you don't somehow forget to talk to Bianca and Alisa at the start and you take the scattered groups of enemies one by one it's practically impossible to lose.
Why are the voice lines for Bianca and Alisa so bad?Bianca's lines seem to be recorded at three different volume levels and Alisa's constant "QUIT SHAVING!" is grating as fuck.
>>683318Just turn voices off, nigga.
>>683313Had to wrap things up quickly so I didn't talk to Bianca and Alisa at the beginning of the mission and had to let the AI control. It made things way harder than it should. Bianca and Irene got defeated.Yeah, I can totally see the mission being easy when you can control Bianca&Co. Still, wish they worked on the ally AI so that Bianca doesn't just aggro absolutely everything
>>683166I remember it as being rather easy, it's early on too...
>>683181Post Irene build
>mfw I'm about to kick Irenes, Annes and Rays ass in the VHPD training missionSorry girls...Also, Giselle finally got introduced, 57 hours in for me. And by the looks of it, she pretty much instantly wants to join the company? The first impression isn't too bad. >big milkers>arrogant and bratty like Bianca because she also got rich parents>THICK sexual tension/frustration with JaneBut I didn't instantly fell in love just yet, like I said, she just seems like an older Bianca but then again I literally saw like 2 minutes of her dialogue so I'll give her more time.
>>683519But they are the one.They have good chances, especially if they can tag Sion.Giselle has the skills to back up her behavior.She goes hunting in heals.In a swamp.Because she can.
>>683169>didn't even have any citizens die.Speaking of civilian casualties>Doing mission perfectly>Some spoonist charges my counter guy and dies>His body explodes and kills a civilianI hate that spell so much
>>683326>Removing waifu heroine irene voice from the gameNever
Ray can be mean if she wants!
>>683549Wonder if we'll ever get a team member who uses a pistol as their weapon.Have a legendary-tier of those, and a legendary hammer.
>>683166Have your irene Built4Loneliness. Rush the phone booth and call up either albus (magic knight-lifedrain) or heixeng (if you have enough defense shit in his build to solo for a while). Pretty much let Bianca die.
>>683318>Alisa's constant "QUIT SHAVING!" is grating as fuck.It’s “close shaving!”Leton is the only one with truly annoying lines.
>>683685I can’t remember if I could fit Phoenix in her build by that point, but irene’s number one mastery for soloing is cauterize, you’ll get raped by bleeds if you don’t include it.
>>683691Pretty sure it's "Quick Shaving", it is the skills name too
>>683691Leton's AW MY GAAWD is annoying but it doesn't come up nearly as often. Alisa shouts out every attack like a DBZ character.
stop bullying my wife alisa RIGHT NOW
why does anne look like she is constantly offering her ass
>>684021she's a SLUT
>>683685>irene Built4LonelinessUnrelated to the original post but I tried giving her the superhero loner bonus amd its kinda hard to set it upIt also goes against her cool pincer movement support bonus
>>683691>quit shavingbased and muffpilled
>>683832your wife is autistic
Will I ever be able to cheat like the enemy bosses and have>2 lives: phoenix heart/2nd heart>Triple counter (i atk, boss counters, i counter the counter, boss enrages and attacks me again killing me from full health)?
>>684208Just use the LoS like nigga.
>>684208The other two choices are memes, she’s designed to mostly run off soloing groups. Use v to keep an eye on los, and smoke reduces it by 2 so you can keep heroism up.
>>684380yesin fact Sharky can drop Phoenix
>>684506Im gonna grind that motherfucker
>>683028She's not in the Troublemaker list which is a good sign, but the fact that she doesn't have voice acting worries me.
>>684380if you get all of irene's unique masteries, when she gets KO'd she phoenixs back up, gets heroism, and the turn immediately changes to hers.
>>684208Solo Irene is bonkers, especially on melee-heavy maps. Build for counter and dodge, throw her into the densest tar pit and watch her kick half the map to death without getting a turn.
>>680268They are meant to be weirdos but their cult actually makes sense as to why people would want to be in it and what its stated beliefs are.Its a mass of regular people who are being crushed by criminals and feel abandoned by the system, so they are being gathered together by street preachers giving them a community and a belief to have faith in.That belief being that if they put on the mask and all care for each other and share resources they can gain more than they put in, and the fanatical Spoonist fighters work together to offer the group protection from the gangs and other threats that preyed on them before while they were alone and powerless (like say when the White Tigers went around openly murdering citizens in a neighbourhood to spread terror and try to undercut the state-sponsored bounty hunter groups after them).That's why they are called Spoonists, their most basic commandment/metaphor is everyone has their own bowl and spoon and if they share a spoonful of their own bowl to their brethren then their friends in turn will be able to share and return that kindness manyfold.
>>684380As the other guys said, you can do almost everything the enemies can do. I thing the only exceptions are the bicrons/destrons and a some masteries of classes that nobody have (yet), like that slaughterer and assassin. IIRC assassin only have a single mastery tho, guess they'll expand it with that Misty dudette.
>>685065It's kind of annoying that for the longest time Spoonists are just a bunch of losers and thugs, and then very late in the story you see a crowd of normal people spoonists including women and children and it gives the whole thing a very different perspective. If they showed much earlier that there are lots of normal Spoonists and they're not just another violent gang full of assholes who got rejected by the other gangs, it would feel a lot less stupid.
Do you guys have any tips about how to build my Albus ? I don't know what to do with him, it's a bit of a glass cannon. Bleeding builds seems cool, but it means I have to 2-hits ennemies, I don't see the appeal of it
>>685076As troubleshooters you only really encounter the violent arm of the Spoonists, and its only later on into their existence as a movement and gaining popularity that they have such a large amount of 'non-combatants' that they are explicitly moving them away to keep them out of reach of their foes.Early on they are mostly made up of punks who are angry at the system, Sharky goes out of his way to recruit the survivors of the Bulls gang that recently got wiped out and are being hunted down by their many enemies.
>>685075I'm not sure who is cuter there, Misty or Sion's brother.
>>685078A bleeding build works pretty well. Later on there will be a lot fewer enemies you can one-shot anyway. A Magic Knight bleed build allows for some very nice self-sustain though Life Drain and Blood Absorbing Sword.Though for my money, the best Albus build is a Master Swordsman build that focuses on reaction attacks. Counterattack, Forestallment, Overwhelm, Punishment all give extra attacks outside of your own turn and the Swordsman class has some nice way to boost those. Add Bladestorm on top which can trigger off any attack, including reaction attacks, and he can dish out a lot of pain without really having to do much. He's not the tankiest character in the game, but he's got decent Block and Dodge out of the box and with the right equipment he doesn't need to invest too much in defensive masteries to stay on the field. Picture related has been working very well for me.
>>685097I should add that bleeding itself isn't a very good status effect, but with a bleed build you can trigger other stuff (like debuffs and self--heals) off bleeding enemies which can be really good.It's the same with Irene and burning builds. Burning itself isn't worth much, it's about what you can trigger with it.
>>685078earlier in the game swordmaster albus is good for dealing with obnoxious autoblocking hp sponges, but desu they aren't actually threats to your team, just waste turns smashing them down. What actually kills your dudes is snipers nests and stuff like that, so I have him with gentle gust, wind walk, turning over a new leaf so I can tp right to the top of their huts and bring the pain to them. This build is a pretty good mix of esp and melee damage so he can clear them out, and has a ton of lifedrain so he has good sustain. Pure damage is covered by heixen and giselle, who between the two of them will generally do 90% of total mission damage, I just need a guy with mobility and sustain. Whats nice is Enough Rest also procs off your life drains, giving you another -20 AT, your turns come very quickly. Deathbringer procs off everything so on longer missions you get tougher, and it can get up 40 stacks near the end of a nasty arrest mission.
Why did the white tigers go full scorched earth on us all of a sudden?We literally never fought them before they go all in on fighting the copsHell why do they start the war anyway? The cops were all focused on the spoons
>>685295They noticed Albus' company cracking down on the gangs and wanted to keep thing going any further and create a mutual destruction situation like with Silverlining. Except they didn't count on the scooby gang being more capable than Silverlining and thus not only continue shitting on the gangs unlike Silverlining who retired when shit got too real, but also shit on the White Tigers themselves.
>>685331It didn't help the White Tigers that they no longer had their allies in the cartel, the two Tiger gangs sat back and watched the Bulls get torn apart and then went their separate ways as rival groups.
>>683166I was somewhat overleveled and had built my Irene for solo heroism. It was a little touch and go, but I did it in the end without even touching the phone or destroying all the jammers.
>>684217How very Korean.
>>685097This has done the trick, now my Albus is a motherfucking monster. Just got Giselle, I will try again the violent case with the leaders of the White Tigers, and hope than this time, Darius will not obliterate my ass.
>>682555If I could be any inanimate object in the world I want to be Biancas penguin pillow...
To who do I give this ?
>>685496Fire critical damage --> IreneShe is a real monster who can one hit everything that came. Build her for being alone, give her the mastery "One hit one kill" and enjoy the ride>>685380It was a success, nobody died, and Giselle didn't do a single attack, she is too much situational
>56 gangers die per missionHoly fuck how are there this many members in a gang
I haven't played this in a while. I got a bit past the dragons and got burned out.
>>680638you should do any mission that says New because that's where all the side story missions like frog genocide are. I think they stop saying New even if you don't clear them after a couple missions too, so keep an eye out.
>>685520> I think they stop saying New even if you don't clear themDon't think so.They stay new until you finish with a success.For violent cases, rushing one boss and then running like a bitch when it gives you the option still counts as a success though.
>>685513>dieDefeated*Barely anybody dies in this game.
>>685601Maybe we should be killing them then
>>685601I swear to fuck I've beaten Kevin's ass a dozen times and the cops just keep letting him out.
>>685601I'm pretty sure the Spoonist goons at the cemetery ended up pretty dead.
>>685601I would not say barely, in my headcanon it is like 50/50. Most of the wildlife gets confirmed killed, not arrested, and there were several post mission cutscenes that said so-and-so many VHPD/Spoonists died. When someone is out of action he is in critical condition, it's not like he just got knocked out, he got shot/stabbed/clubbed/*elemental effect* so hard he falls over unconscious and it is not unlikely they die.
Give this man Jason a break
How can I make irene regen? She doesn't put bleed so life drain doesn't work
>>685792Final Flame and Hellfire. Heal every time you hit a buffed enemy, heal every time Cauterize procs.
Is it worth to grind bosses like Pink Horn in order to get their equipment ?
>>685792Flames of regeneration (like lifedrain but with burn) and Cauterize with the final flame set (Causes cauterize to heal 8% of your max HP for every debuff it removes)
>>685858nah, you will find something better soon enough at that stage of the game. it is only when you start reaching violent cases like Draki Nest, Magenta street, Shadow wall culvert and onwards that enemies have gear worth grinding for
>>685865But Pink Horn is in Magenta street...
>>685890Not that Magenta Street, V46 Magenta Street.
>>685858I farmed him lategame for 100% entry since you can just solo him with Albus or Heixing or whatever. Early will take time and the gear doesn't worth it. Crafting will give you good stuff before the "endgame".
>>685890What ? Already done this mission twice and I never saw him, where the fuck is he hiding ?Just beat the mission with the train and the 5 bicrons and god dammit it was tedious, I was sweating bullet each time Sion was near deathJust unlocked the taming ability, do you have any recommandation of monster I should get before to advance in the story ?
>>686132I think he only shows up on Hard or higher difficulty.
>>686137Don't judge me too hard, game isn't easy :(
>>686132>do you have any recommandation of monsterWhat I'd do is go to the mission where Timas first show up and tame a super low level one so you can evolve it from scratch. He'll be weak at first so just have him hang back and passively leech XP for a bit, but that way you can make sure you get to select his personal masteries while evolving. Evolve your first Tima into an Ice Tima. You can get other animals and other types if you want, but an Ice Tima will make for a perfect tank/bodyguard and is basically all you need until you get Drakis or Crabs in the lategame.>>686143Nah I'm not judging, play the way you want.
>>685819>>685860NiceI'll give that a try.Her solo hero build is great but I want to be sure she is fully self sustaining
>Doing some random spoonist side mission>Suddenly some bull gang leader shows up and literally runs over sion and 2gunz guy killing them instantlyRagequit right there
>>686146Thanks mate ! I will get one as soon as I reboot the game
>>686196Was it Scott ?
The mission where you defeat the leader of the White Tigers and all the snipers on the roof was horrible. I sacrificed so much good soldiers in order to gain time... Thanks for your sacrifice Irene, Sion, Heixing, and all the nameless of the policeNever again. Each time I feel than I found the perfect mastery set for characters, mission like that put me at my limit
>Heixing does it for free
>>686478He's a janny from the Fortress of Suffering.
>>686367I think soGuy in a baseball cap and mask
Those 60+ enemy missions are making me tired of the gameI think I'm just gonna start skipping side missions for now, otherwise I'm gonna burnout
>>686566Ah no, that's Caohong and he's a Spoonist
>>686599He's a huge cunt is what he is
>>686618Yeah, but he can drop second heart
>>686633I hate grinding for a specific skill so if I never naturally get it I'll just learn to live without it
>>686478How does he afford anytging?
Update #99 is going to be delayed but we'll get "a good story".I'm kinda excited to see what they do for update #100 though, as in will it ve something special or "just" another update.
>>686696>the update has been delayedclassic dandyboi
>doing the mission where you have to find and destroy a Bicron and save Lee the trucker and Ray>send Irene to rescue Lee and Ray>find them being attacked by Turk>think it's going to be easy as Irene can easily kill him>it's Ray's turn>she tries to melee fight Turk for some reason>bitch get crit'd and dies instantly>mfwJUST
>>686696I don't see why people are presuming update #100 will be particularly special, its just a big round number and nothing else
>>686752You don't have to save Ray. You do have to save Lee, the trucker, though, and that's kind of a bitch because he has like 250 HP and any enemy can just leap out of the shadows and gank him at pretty much any time.
Jesus Christ, Irene
>>686752>>686766that mission ended instantly after I killed the bicron. Didn't even find Ray or Lee yet.
>>679382Just think of them as brown refugees, anon.
op pic gave me cancer, so no
>>686777I couldn't even destroy the bicron myself. I whittled it down to maybe half of its HP before it ran out of fuel and self-destructed.
>>686752Ayy, almost the same happened to me, she just got ganked up and got her ass whooped by 3 dudes before I could even reach her. You'll get her soon, but she really sucks at the start
>>686769Strong, independant hero that don't need no troubleshooter company
>alley lives matter What's next, bicron apologism?
GUYS, WTF is this SHITI just met the Frostcon on a violent case, and I just couldn't make his health descend. WTF is Special Armor ? It was triggered every single attack I did, I was obliged to abandon the mission because my mates was slowly dying because of this piece of shit. Had no trouble killing his friend the fire bicron, fuck this game, I don't wanna play it anymore
>>687269Buckle up, it's gonna get worse.
>>687270How can it be worse, he is fucking invincible...
>>687269Get a load of this damagelet! Craft some weapons m8.>>687275>How can it be worse than bicronsDestrons. You just wait.
>>687275IIRC special armor only blocks damage that's below a certain % of his max HP. Simply put, you just need to hit him harder.
>>687279God dammit, how will I survive. Should I farm and craft ? Is that how is the endgame ?
>>687269>>687275Special armor is probably the one that nullifies any damage that is lower than a certain % of HP.If it makes you feel any better, it costs fuel so just keep hitting him until he runs out of it>How can it be worseIn challenge mode, it can also spawn with another mastery that reduces any incoming damage that is greater than 25% of his max HP to that value
>>687275> he is fucking invincible...He only ignores hits that would take 25% health.You're police guys come with EMP grenades, use them.Hackerwoman helps immensly.> How can it be worseHe has friends.Like Fire and Lightning.And Red Eye if you are playing on hard.Frost is imo the weakest.Also, wait until you learn about Berserk.Also Destrons.
>>687286And here I was thinking that Dandylion where nice guys, seems like they are fucking assholes. I was enjoying being a fucking monster until now, but seems like my ass is being torn by everything now
>>687287>Also, wait until you learn about Berserk.>Also Destrons.>tfw challenge mode gives the black destron Berserk
>>687287I already had to fight the Fire one, it was way enoughSeems to me I should upgrade my Kylie, she honestly seems very weak and unpowerful until drones are upgraded a lot, but I'm sure she will become soon very powerful
>>687289That's actually easy to handle by running away and hiding like heroes.>>687290> seems very weak and unpowerful Drones are only powerful late game.For this case you don't want drones, because they block a hacking slot.You don't bitch about the Bicrons if you are the Bicrons.
>>687292Here I go for a Hacker Kylie I also tried a berserk build for Albus but I regretted it very quickly when I was unable to use him for like 4 turns and than he killed my hero
>>687284Crafting can definitely help, either crafting new gear if your current stuff is shit, or upgrading it if it's good. But before that, maybe take a look at your buillds and see if there's stuff you can optimize there.
>>687297>I also tried a berserk build for AlbusThe only playable character who should even consider a berserk build is Alisa. It's more hinder than help on anyone else.
>>687297His love for her is like a truck
>>687300I'm constantly ajusting builds, but it's true that I'm a little overlooking my equipment. I only crafted the electric set for Sion right now. I will see it looked tomorrow
no it looks like weeb shit
>>687304Berserk is a meme for alisa, the bonuses are not good enough to justify losing control of your character. Encourage/Enrage is better
>>687371I didn't say it's the best, but it's definitely viable. Which is more than you can say of putting berserk on any other character.You can basically just toss her into a crowd and stay out of her way as she wrecks everyone around her while being unkillable.
>>687083End Bicron slavery!
>>679116I'm going for my 3rd attempt at the Outskirt Road 112 violent case. With 5 side missions now too, so if I do it, this will be huge. The first two times I got by shit wrecked but now I got a decent Ray to help, upgraded my gear and overthinked my tactics. *breathes in*LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>687878Good luck bro. Don't forget you can peace out of violent cases and still get a win as long as you kill a boss, so if things don't go your way you don't have to 100% it.
>>687888Aw man, that was extremely easy! I didn't even lose a single guy and the team breezed through it like it was a stroll on the beach or something. Crazy that I got absolutely destroyed twice before even finishing 1/3 of the enemies before that. You can really feel the progression. Heixing was definitely the MVP in this one. He's like a force of nature.
How do I kill Spoonist Combattants without taking ages to do it
>mfw my dumbass only got into crafting big time 63 hours inb-better late than never...but seriously, crafting is lots of fun and really useful, make sure to craft the low level items with a bar, because once it is filled you unlock the upgraded version of ittook me forever to find out how to get perfect obsidians and the like
>>687953Crafting is fun but it gets pretty grindy for the high-level stuff, and it can be a bit of a puzzle to figure out the optimal way to craft and/or breakdown materials to get the ingredients you need.
>>687959Never sell things, break down everything.Identify newly crafted shit, break it down again.Still lack enough indigo black iron parts.
>>687939This is what I fucking love in this game. When you fucking obliterate a whole group of ennemies in like one turn
>>687953I just done like 1 hour of crafting right now, will try later to see if my team is stronger now
>>687965>Still lack enough indigo black iron parts.
>>687942Put castle gatecrasher on albus. Anything that drops block will rape them
>>687953You only need to starting really crafting later into the game.
Why does nobody told me a powerful is Heixing with Base Defense and all sets associated ? I just put him in place and he auto does all the work, noice
>>688235wait till you set up fire support Giselle, between the two of them they do like 90% of your teams damage.
>>688262>*Darkness Hunter in your path*
>>688262I will look into it, but my Giselle is already a real monster Even Kylie is starting to do some damage here, this game is amazing
Is "Tough Spirit" compatible with the "Berserk" status ?
>>688294>*flares*nothin personnel, kid
Is this shit fun or too autistic like xcom long war? i want to play a game, not fuck around for 200 hrs
>>688580Im 60 hours in and I haven't even unlocked the 5th team member
>>688580It's definitely a long game, with a slowly paced story, lots of optional missions, and levels lasting anywhere from 20 minutes to more than an hour. I'd still say it's much less autistic than Long War though, mostly because of how it's structured. Unlike XCOM, there's no overarching game to fail. You can fail a level, but then you just lose a bit of Motivation (which is trivial to refill) and try again. Levels can be played and replayed as often as you want, and the longest type of missions (violent cases) can be finished any time you kill a boss enemy, so if you just want to get a quick win you can rush the nearest boss and quit the level right there. It still counts as a victory. This gives the game a much more relaxed feel than XCOM where there's always an element of pressure. There's never anything like terror mission that you need to respond to right away, you can just take whatever mission you feel like doing at any time. That's not to say the game is super casual, because some of the missions are hard as balls especially on Hard or Cruel difficulty on Challenge Mode, but it's only as much of a challenge as you feel like taking on.
>>688580its more "grindy" and "soap operay" than autism. You can do a lot more build autism than xcom tho, but what sucks up the time is learning the backstory of the 100 different mooks you just dumpstered.
>>688585WTF are you doing bro, you should have already 8 mates
>>674665How do I stop being a retard that get detected every mission start?
>>688968Move slower and keep your team together?
>>688968Most missions don't have a time limit, so take it easy. Don't rush with double movement. The best fight is the one you start snipping a faggot and confusing his friends.
>>689266>snippingEr... sniping*. Late game you can start a fight snipping some niggers, but it won't confuse them.

>>689496It's better to buy the low-level crystals from her and craft the ones she needs out of them.
Bought this years ago and I've been sitting on it waiting for it to be finished. It sounds like they're still adding content even now? Do they have a roadmap?
>>689610>It sounds like they're still adding content even now?Yup, though technically the content they're adding at the moment is part of the first DLC, not the base game. They just decided to give away the DLC for free so everyone has it.>Do they have a roadmap?Internally probably, but there's no much we know about it. We know that there's a new DLC in the works (this time it won't be free) and that it'll introduce a new recruitable character named Misty (picture related), but we don't really know anything else about it.
>>689633Sounds like I should actually play it now then.
>>689663Sure. Apart from the sometimes dodgy translation, the base game is entirely finished, and most of the first DLC is finished too. So unless you want to wait for the next DLC there's no reason not to play it at the moment.
>>689538Yeah, I found it out myself soon after too! I already played for almost 70 hours but only recently got into crafting. My team is crazy strong now. But yeah, buying the 3 lower tier items that you can craft into the crystal costs less than buying the crystal. Crazy that I explore new stuff 70 hours in.

>>690083>And the strawberry chainsaw loliNot before she turns you into a collection of brutalized body parts.
>>690112Hey, the rest of the world can make up for it.
>>690042>>690083This, but also with every other girl and not only lewd but also cute fanart. There is some on Steam, although rarely.
>>690106That's kinda hot
>>689521>is the real villain...society???
>>689803For someone who frequents /vst/? Not that hard. If you're not used to the genre, it might be too much.
>>690273We got white and black tiger outfits after beating the base game. I wonder if we'll get clown outfits after beating the DLC.
>>690273You joke but it might actually be...
>>690273>>690834Constructs are Neutral
>>674665Can I transfer a pirated save into a bought game?
Skulls are fucking monster. Just met them, and waouh, they just O-HIT my mates one after the other. What am I supposed to do against them except throwing smoke grenade everytime I make a move ?
>>691559Skulls are weird. They seem like a super big deal when they're first introduced and even have a unique mechanic with the items you can get off them, but they almost immediately become entirely irrelevant again.
>>691568Looks like I will feel the same than I felt when I first discovered White Tigers
>>685133>lose one vigor for each dead mob>per stackThis sounds hard to deal with.
>>691641White Tigers at least had an actual story arc and were relevant for quite a bit before getting dismantled.Skulls just show up for like two missions, we learn that Giselle already wrecked them before coming to Wind Wall, and then their leader gets killed by the boss of the clown dudes in a cutscene.
>>691691The clown thing is a flashback and part of the reason why the Skulls are floundering as a gang in the present
>>691823Are you a red panda? Do you have autism? No? Then no.
>>691823Use your wind powers to hold your spaghetti.
>>691671It’s not permenant, it just to prevent weird looping behavior from stamina recovery on kill abilities
The deeper I go into the game, the more it become a fucking nightmare. What am I supposed to do against the Blood Yasha Matriarch ? I killed like 40 hatchling with Counterstrike Albus, but they slowly killed my team and then the rest. Damn, I feel like I'm retarded
Also, why the fuck SHOULD I kill 8 of my team with only 2 guys during VPHD mission ? I was thinking that if I failed it wouldn't matter but no...Looks like I'm going to desequip all my masteries set and equipment just to do this mission, it's not very fun
>>692096Kill them in bulk. Send your fire drone to purge them.
>>692157Yeah I played through the whole game on Hard/Challenge and that's the one level where I really have no idea how to win without cheesing it. Just unequip all your dudes and it's easy, but that can't be the intended way.
>>692177Giselle and Kylie featuring 9005 summons
>>692177>>692202That mission is poorly designed. No way you can beat your team without cheesing, not with bullshit like Sion one-shooting everything with memefield and an extra live.
>>692202Nah, on Hard/Challenge they kill the summons way too fast for them to be worth much.Maybe a high level Draki could tank it, but the drones and Timas I had at that point don't last and when you've got your melee dudes with moves that allows them to get on the platform without using the stairs, it's hopeless.
>>692168Shit, I will have to invest myself in drones now...
I will go capture a few Draki eggs in the next hour.What should I do with them guys ? Never done anything with beasts yet.Or should I focus on the story ?
>>692566Capture 4 in a row with reload + one shot one kill on the small drakis.I'd raise one of each type and a mix between barons and knigths, though I only have knights because they look cooler.You can forgo catching pokemon, but they are very useful in the later dlc and violent cases.
>>692640Ok, I captured two (I didn't have the one shot mastery in my build), will see later what to do with them, I will probably have to retry this mission for crafting so, will see later about what to with those fuckers
>>692157>>692216>>692177>>692202I beat it even with Heixing getting possessed by Vindictive Spirit midway through. Pic related is my current Giselle build, it hasn't changed much since I played the mission.
>>692566I like these:Black Knight (becomes Draki King)White Knight (becomes Draki Queen)Ice Knight (best tank)Lightning Baron (best ranged attacker)
>>692657Ok, I will make the couple Draki King and Queen, seems cool, thanks !
The finale mission of the season 1 is so boring. It's complete shit, it was too easy when the mission where tedious before that.Welp, looks like I'm done here, time to do the DLC
>>692640You should mention that Catharsis helps immensely for cooldowns.Also Barons are CUTE!CUTE!
>We tried to proceed with the update this week, but the developments so far are not sufficient and the completeness of it is not satisfactory.>We decided that we can't proceed with the update as it is, so we would like to ask for your understanding.update delayed. AGAIN
>>692931small indie company please understandI'd rather they delay it than push out something that isn't ready anyway.
>>692931>We apologize for continuously exposing our lack of development power and failing to improve it.>The development team is always sorry for not meeting your support.
>>692931As long as I get more onee-san content I'm good...
>>692931>>692969I mean it's basically a finished game, I don't feel like being bent out of shape about waiting for bonus stuff.
>>693321What problem do you have with it?
>>693255the game won't be over until we get an Albus+Irene sex cutscene (whille Bianca watches heartbroken though the keyhole)
>spend three hours playing a violent case just for the enemy to abruptly turn the whole thing around and fuck me in the last quarter>againI'm gonna take a little break I think
>>694461It really do be like that sometime.Take a rest, king.
>>694461>Destron violent case>go through the double railway>advance stops in the tower section with the ramp because there is a swarm of enemies in there>suddenly red destron comes from behind, snipes giselle and ray and leaves kylie at half HP>i hadn't even activated his pod
>>694875>i hadn't even activated his podIt's not XCOM bro. Enemies can alert other enemies.
I've just gotten Anen and holy shit between her baseline and equipment her stats suck. I mean, okay she's a healer, and a small child, but damn. What should I focus on to start with?
>>694906I made her pretty tanky at first, then full healbot/aurawhore with OP AT reductions once I got all masteries. Just give her speed at some defenses until you get the good shit and she'll be a immortal healbot. Also craft some gear for her.
>>694906Anne is rather weak at first admittedly, but 1) so is every character after the original trio because the lag behind on their class level and 2) she becomes extremely strong later on with her Black Witch build.
I wish the story wasn't 90% flashbacks. I was enjoying Albus building up his company at the start.
>>695040It kinda switches back and forth. The flashbacks give context to the story arcs, but the arcs themselves are all set in the present.
newfag hereI fucking hate magenta streetthat is all
>>695164wait until you reach crabnam
>>695166I hate the fact than they are waiting underground.At least Giselle flare is here for them but fuck it
One Shot One Kill is genuinely a game changer, holy shit.
>>695569Last few side missions I did were a complete breeze, although admittedly, they were probably not the hardest to begin with. But maybe I will increase the difficulty from Hard to the one above, where every enemy is an elite enemy.>inb4 I get my shit wrecked hard in the next violent case mission I attempt
So I just have finished the story. Don't see myself pointlessly farming beasts at the moment honestly.It was a great game, and if you're able to finish the mission with the destruction of the White Tigers, well done, it was for me the worst mission of the game when I done it. After that, all is alright
>i will never be called pretty by giselle with a smile on her face>but some mutant frog that hides in the bushes at night did>tfw negooris get more action than me
>>695874Women just can't resist a big black negoori.
>>695164If you mean the lvl 15 version, try scraping together the physical resistance 3 masteries for Albus and Irene, and don't try to be clever with builds. Just extend hit/crit/dodge/block for now.If you mean the other one...yeah.
