A pretty much stock level 13 MiFi, advancing pretty well. Gear is pretty good, but of the decidedly uninteresting variety, which the maxed out Oka should be helping out with. D:14, I run into Louise. She's pretty much dead... and I get banished straight to Abyss:3. I'm slowly getting whittled down while searching for the exit, but I'm holding my ground pretty well as long as it's not any worse than 2v1. Then I round a corner and get mobbed. I pop a teleport scroll, haste, and start retreating the other way... an exit! I sprint towards it, and just as I move onto the tile, as I'm metaphorically diving through the door... the teleport takes effect.

Managed to get RLCraft to run through MultiMC.

Then I began to play RLCraft. That's how I died.

My squad is positioned at a chokepoint.

A hostile pops up, and, of the five people staring at them, only one person, a young Lokk'naar lass named Raya Dumbsmart, takes initiative. The target is scant inches away. With a knife in one hand, and a flamer in the other, she readies to attack.

And promptly sets three of her squadmates on fire, one of them, incidentally her commanding officer, fatally.

The fight against The Fury pissed me off from the beginning. I despise bosses that just sit a giant hitbox on top of you until you die. Unlike Foxhound or Dead Cell, the Cobras get zero build up, appear exactly once before their battle, and disappear with as little ceremony as they arrived.

The Fury and I were both down to a tiny amount of health. He dropped in front of me, facing the wrong way. I shoot him and he flies to the ground. He stands up, I shoot him again... and he's invincible now. He then kills me.

The game knew that I'd won, and decided to fuck me over anyways. Just when it was starting to grow on me, I suddenly never want to play this game again.

The Fury is the worst boss in the game.

The knife is surprisingly useful. I guess the issue is getting close enough to use it though...

Started playing Saints Row 2 again, this time (like all times) with the Gentlemen of the Row Mod.

Got reminded of why I stopped when the game crashed when I tried to start an activity, and realized that I wasn't willing to switch to windowed mode, fiddle around with the SR2 Powertools, and make a sacrifice of my own blood in order to get the game to run properly.

Still debating whether to do all that, but I think I might. The opportunity to throw trashcans at weebs is too tempting to pass up.

Slapped off a mountain by a flaming hand and landed in lava.

Banjo-Tooie.  I've probably died more in Hailfire Peaks than the other levels combined.  Sometimes intentionally since it was faster than running back to where I needed to go, and once because I got stuck beneath a comatose baby alien somehow and had to kill myself with grenade eggs...

Can't seem to figure out how to get Raikov's clothes. He seems to show up as soon as there's any kind of disturbance, which makes it very difficult to eliminate all the guards. Just when I think I've taken out all the guards it turns out there's one more just rounding the corner, ready to ruin my entire day.

I really, really wish you could just use CQC in the scientist disguise.

Just wait until a guard is alone, take off the disguise, then CQC? Use distractions like wall-knocks to separate guards as well. Also, sleep-weapons that you can use in disguise(Handkerchief, Cigs) are available if you look for them, these should insta-drop anyone in range of their effect.

If I remember correctly, Raikov's patrol path does take him into the locker room on the second floor, and there shouldn't be any guards in there. If not there, at least the adjoining break room.

I think you can put him in the bathroom on the ground floor too, but itís been a while since I played.

Facepalm moment. Got a mission: deliver 150 processors to a station. Payoff is 2.7 million credits. Just so happens that in my starting territory on the opposite side of the galaxy(there was a wormhole) there was a processor factory. I take the trip there... only to realize that I can only afford 15 of the processors I need. And the mission has a 30-minute time limit, so grinding up some extra cash is probably out of the question.

You're probably past that part already, but I usually wait for Raikov to go into the room at the top of the stairs, then gas him with the knockout cigarettes from the Granin institute. I think he always does this immediately after leaving the library at the bottom of the stairs, and if you're on the first cycle of his route then nobody will walk in on you as you drag him to the locker room. If you don't have the cigarettes, you can also use the awkward handkerchief shooting attack or just swap out of the disguise, choke him out, and then put it back on just in case.

anyway back to my self-imposed exile. good luck with snake eater

Stygian: Reign of the dark ones. Mostly great so far.  :P
EDIT: Skimmed trough reviews... In addition to slowpoke combat - all-save-breaking bugs, busted mid-story ending, great story while it lasts, fine everything else... Yep, all the things we like proper cultic games for.  ::) Hopefully in 5 years someone will make a fanpatch that restores cut content and fixes bugs.  And speeds up combat by 100%, this is crazy.

I am the commander of this outpost in the tundra, a bustling bastion against the ravages of cold was founded by a scant 80 stalwart individuals. I am the sole arbiter of light and warmth in this eternally frozen landscape. But I am kind and merciful; just see what my propaganda mills are reporting. Hundreds of refugees are flocking to my town because there is warm soup for all and medical facilities as far as the eye can see.

And after taking in all these poor souls seeking a better place, we have weathered the storm and I am prepared to lead them into a glorious future. All 87 of them.
