Sometimes Tetris seems like a totally fun game about stacking blocks

And other times Tetris is like "go to hell idiot, have z-pieces for the next hundred years"

Tried to use the Party Van loadout on the first campaign map it becomes available.

The Party Van loadout is characterized by having long-range weaponry, a decent movement speed, a unique horn sound...

And rather low armor and shielding.

That and the fact Iím still not accustomed to the tank controls meant I eventually gave up after enough attempts.

Adventure mode stage fighting Zelda and Yuri Kozukata, the latter constantly zapping me with the Camera Obscura, which paralyzes and does about 30% damage and has a very wide hitbox.

EDIT: When a battle has a rule that states "All fighters easier to launch", it really only applies to you, not the opponents. I was getting blown off the stage with as little as 20%-25% damage, yet nearly impossible to get a kill on a Yoshi with 50%-60% damage, which I've managed in other fights without the rule.

As someone who plays yoshi as a secondary I will say that the little bastard is deceptively hard to kill.  I'm not sure what exactly it is but my best guess is that he's heavier than he looks.  Can't speak for spirit or adventure mode gimmicks though, I don't touch those modes with a 20 foot pole made of notouchium.

I found Gruel, a unique legendary raider, just walking down the road in Malden. He had a skull next to his name, but I had an instigating hunting rifle and sneak attack and the critical meter was full. I knock off half his health in the first shot.

He fires one shot back and kills me, at full health and with several buffs.

It's been a very long time i didn't tried to get to orbit in Orbiter (still using the 2010 version as some of the addons i use aren't updated to the recent 2016 and apparently less stable version)

Ah that's still quite nice, i think i remember what to do to get a safe ascension with the XR-2 .

Oh well, at least it was a nice ascension until i screwed up :D
Back to reading my own reference docs about getting a fuel efficient orbit without dying.

I've been killing radstags whenever I see them. +25 carry weight for an hour is no joke in Survival, especially in the early game.

I pass a group of radstags and huck a grenade at them. It turns out one of them is legendary. I am so stunned by this revelation that I don't react in time. Did you know radstags have a special kill animation?

I found out there's a Jetstream Sam mode.  Kinda tough, lacking upgrades to speak of, but pretty rad.
Then I got to VR Mission 004 without any repair paste

It starts with a hint of what's to come- 2 shield guys charge instantly, with a warhammer behind them, supported by two shooters.  The shields would easily fall to a well-timed block/counter, except that their charge *usually* gets interrupted by them getting shot in the back for miniscule damage.  Meaning they're basically invincible at the start.  But eh, the only actual threat is the warhammer-guy with his occasional unblockable swings.  Sam lacks Raiden's dodge ability, but I eventually figured out his double jump can usually avoid the swing.

Then there are 3 gorillas.  They're tough AF and constantly do highly damaging grabs.  At first I could stick-waggle my way out, but I think that becomes more difficult the more you get grabbed.  Also some of the variants require really fast reaction anyway.  Since there's 3 of them, they tend to surround and grab from off-camera.  This was really tough without repair kits, but I eventually got 2 of them down...  which triggers 2 of the fucking silt-striders to reinforce the last one.  I quit out of VR heh.

But then I found a repair paste down the hall, and recalled that I'd somehow "used up" my rocket launcher in VR.  Sure enough, I was able to carry the repair paste back into VR.  And if I immediately quit out, and ran back down the hallway, the paste had respawned (along with one very unfortunate guard).  Took a while, but I tried again with 4 repair pastes.

I had barely scratched the surface of the BS this mission throws at you.  A chopper, two blade wolves with a bipedal...  I got to the swarm of armbots with 2 heavy troopers, and gave up.
Here's what it looks like if you can get perfect blocks, I guess, instead of trying to stay alive while wearing things down: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiwpTY8NlTE
(also I guess there *are* FC upgrades somewhere??  All I've got is 130% health)

A fight against Incineroar and Villager, plus there's the (hostile) assist trophy Sheriff. The only items that drop are those things from Galaga that drag you off stage. This fight is such utter bullshit. The Galaga thing is a pretty much guaranteed insta-kill, since it's all but impossible to break out of it even with a spirit that gives easier escape from binds/grabs(such as Cubivore's Pig). The Sheriff is also bullshit, since it's uncannily accurate despite only being able to fire in eight directions, and keeps repeatedly hitting me as I try to get back on the screen. Not only that, his bullets are unaffected by things like the Franklin Badge(which reflects projectiles back).

I don't think I got past the second enemy encounter in the Sam's story mode.

Sam lacks Raiden's dodge ability

He does, it's a sort of roll unlike Raiden's sidestep+sword swing. I don't remember it being terrible.
Bladewolf also has a dodge but IIRC it's kinda slow and shit.

That fight is pure suffering. The only good way to deal with it is to equip assist killer and try to get lucky and take out the Sheriff early. Once he's out of the picture it becomes substantially easier, though it still isn't exactly a walk in the park.

Edit - Actually, I might be thinking of a different fight. I can't remember whether the Sheriff can actually be KO'd.

I think so. I certainly can hit the Sheriff, so I assume he can be KO'd. Ironically, the support spirit that gives Assist Killer is... The Sheriff.

...That would probably explain why I was unable to avoid the final(?) dlc boss's yellow charges except for maybe 10% of the time.
Thread appropriate- I burnt out all 4 of my repair nanites on the first half of that fight, then hit a checkpoint.  I'm very much up a creek without a paddle, and only pride kept me from restarting the chapter.

In case it's not clear, though, I fricken love the DLC and respect the challenge it provides.  I really wanted to keep playing but my fingers hurt a *LOT* from using an XBOX controller for the first time in a while.

Advantage:  Reasonably possible to block, maybe even counter hits
Disadvantage: Increasingly bad physical pain
