I hope so, because boosting over gaps toward the Junk Dealer on the bigger battery bike was "whew" while MULES chased my ass. :doge

Born on a mountain, raised in a cave.
Truckin' and Building Roads, is what I crave.


Got roads built past the mid-way mark to the Distribution Center. Thanks... to nobody but me. :doge

Now I'm trying to build the road from the Distribution Center to the last link but the material costs skyrocket and I can't put in contracts for people to put the materials into the road. :doge :'( Time to hunt MULES, I guess... >:(

I'll look forward to playing this once it's on megadiscount or PS+ and the surge of new players will make the landscape replete with bridges and stuff.

Has the game been on sale at all digitally on PS4? I keep checking every sale to tell my brother to finally buy it, but it never seems to be discounted at all.

Road Autism
[close]

2hours:30mins to do this mission because I was building roads from the starting area->mid-way distribution center (started here since the road I built a few days ago got here)->Mama's lab/city.

Go back and forth to get materials from the player-built shelters (sorry to anyone keeping materials there, but fuck you for not building roads earlier), build out from Mama's Lab to the Incenerator on the map and beyond that to the Distribution Center in the mountains. At that point I run out of materials and take the truck across the rivers up to the final stretch. Find a player built shelter, go "Fuck, let me see those materials."

Slight spoilers for Don
SLAM! fall over backwards onto Mama while being chased by Terrorist MULEs.

Sam: "OH MY GOD! I'm so sorry!!! Are you ok?"
16% damage.

At that point, I put the materials into the road next to the shelter (>:| not finished) and deliver the cargo to the area. Results above.

I would build the network, but testing it is a fools errand.

Also apparently you can't choose a direction for the zipline if there's multiple connected to one.

Huh? If your zipline connects to more than 1 other zipline you press the d-pad left/right to switch which one you want to go to.

Also building zipworks is a strategy of using the existing ones that are at weird places to make the mid-point sections between the ones you put down since bandwidth is limited.

You misunderstand. I've seen too many from the PC community that connect and the end point is on a mountain to where getting off has the tongs  drop over the mountain face and drop you like five stories to your death/damage cargo to where I'm leery about using them. :doge

Nah, those are great midpoints. Connect to them from max distance (using lvl.2 upgrades for the extra 50 distance to conserve bandwith) and then put another one max range away from that cliff dropper.

Reached the end of the second area. But now I need to figure out:

Actual game spoilers
How to cross the Tar Ocean
[close]

Which the game doesn't explain. At least in an e-mail I haven't gotten yet, and nothing ordered/required yet...

So I might go back and 5-star EVERYTHING connected and see if I can get a few of the dark-zone areas on the network and maybe finish building roads until/when the game tells me the information?

Edit: OH I AM A MORON. :snoop I can't believe the answer was that obvious.

I am pretty sure there is some kind of gated limits to how much they will pull into your game. Getting a really great route set up is damn satisfying though.

fwiw the Pizza delivery missions are intentionally troll missions. The one from the farm....fffffuuuuu

You weren't kidding. Holding R2 all the while crossing the infamous water-fall area to then get on the :bow road I built :bow2 (:piss Rest of the Community not helping me :piss2 ) to get there in 30 mins or less. :doge

There's apparently two more. I got one triggered doing the PChad Hale-LifexPortalxDS cross over event so that leaves one more after that, but this one is in the mountains. :stahp

Built a zipline Network up there nearly by myself. Dude isn't on the Network yet, so I now have to do their shit before building a zipline to zipline down to Mountain KNot and go around the mountain on my :bow roads :bow2 to deliver this last one.

Yeah, for the mountain and East Coast. The flat-area of the mountains for the most part already had bridges and my road network to where it wasn't completely awful doing those. In fact, I can go from Capital Knot to Lake Knot in the East Coast with little branches for the other ones right now until they decay. :lol :doge

However, Max Payne/Sam Lake and the Fimitsu dude took FOREVER, IMO to do. The others weren't too bad.

Yeah, that's most of it.

I got really into zip network and networked every single relay station together via ziplines in the main map. Was satisfying and made it a no brainer to 5 star most of them. Definitely took time & effort though.

"One last delivery" :mjcry Mads' arc :tocry

Not explicitly spoilerly but tagged all the same
Wasn't expecting the game to tie things together in such a touching way, particularly after the long beach sequence and its 'conclusion' (read after the fact in a comment apparently the IGN reviewer who gave it a poor score only played this far :p, though I avoided all reviews). Not sure any game I've seen nail such convincing crying rendering, apart from the solid performances themselves.

I enjoyed the sprinkling of levity brought by Heartman and also various of Higgs' sequences, particularly the latter's last fight styles. Only a Japanese game would throw in that. Also nice nod to Refn's lighting style in Heartman's room. Solid game, despite some grindy stretches if one wants better items. Was impressed at the snow traversal and effects, so those sections I didn't mind as much.
