Well I sank 8 hours into this today. Really enjoying it. I set up a button on my Steam Controller to be rapid fire for giving Likes, and can give almost 400 at once  :lol. Also set up a button to toggle both triggers to be held so I don't have to keep holding them manually. I work with my hands and holding the triggers hurts my fingers. Fucking love Steam Input.

Story is weird, as expected. Can't remember the last time I played for such a long period in one day.

What's with all the loose cargo going to the places I just went to on the way to the place I'm going?  :rage :rage :rage :rage :rage :rage

Kojimaaaaaaa this backtracking... :maf :lol

I haven't gotten a five star yet. I'm still in the "tutorial" phase despite being in "Chapter Two"/scene 2.

I set up a button on my Steam Controller to be rapid fire for giving Likes, and can give almost 400 at once  :lol

Loose cargo is usually cargo that's been dropped by other players that didn't bother picking it up. I think in the tutorial starting areas they just spawn a bunch of it to teach you about it. There will be more and more ways to deal with this stuff later so don't get too bogged down backtracking the early deliveries.

Protip: Don't think "Oh, I can just overload my bike and myself, it'll be fine." 1) The bike slows down 2) You slow down. 3) You run into BT's and can't outrun them apparently (much to my dismay as I did that a few times)

Now I have a shit ton of cargo to haul back to the last "strand" for the first area and a BT area that completely fucks me over. :lol :lol :lol :lol :doge

Reloaded a save like five points back because the game auto-saves at terminals or if you squat/rest. :doge

(Also the infamous PS4 save-file blowing up is in the PC version. Why doesn't the Decima engine/Kojima allow us to delete saves? I guess for recovery/screwing up purposes like mine but still... geez, I have saves going back yesterday morning)

Kojima!!!!

[close]

:beli Kojima...

(Norman or whoever they modeled the body on has no ass.)

Only on Master Race edition™
[close]

Finished the first actual boss of the game. The weapon combat so far is pretty wonky. I haven't gotten guns (which Kojima showed off in E3 demos?) yet, so the battle was "climb up and throw things at it" and then you pick up the "used" parts of it, but you can use those again even though I have a mountain of blood bags I haven't used. :doge :doge :doge :doge

So after the battle, recycled those. There's deliveries to do here but I dunno how beneficial it'd be to grind instead of going on the boat.

Also Pro-tip: Get the cities back online ASAP. It'll give you the bridges/etc. that people build. I didn't realize this slamming through the notifications until after I left the "network" area (going to the last point of the first area) that the builds don't reach past a certain point so I couldn't drive the Trike/Motorcycle up the mountain to the last area because it got extremely rocky and nobody had bridges up.

Which reminds me: Building is really awkward in regards to not being able to rotate and "ramp" things like the ladder or the bridges. The wind-farm is notable. I saw a bridge with a tree going through it, but you can't place a bridge to have the bike go down a "ramp"/slope to an easier area. So taking the bike through that area (so far) is really annoying.

I dunno if that's fixed on the PS4 version, but I do think Kojima and his team could make it a little easier to build things and have the "strands"/roads be better/continuous instead of these "gaps" where you're able to place a bridge but then you have to dodge rocks to get to the next one.

I haven't bothered with using the materials and that's kind of biting me in the ass with the amounts I've got in private lockers. The second area introduces "roads" and I don't know where to get Cermics from. :doge

:ohhh XL Cermics there.

80-100Kg weight. :beli

Built the first road in the PC version apparently, since none of the networks I put up had them until I did that. :beli

As soon as I did that, people started to build roads. :rejoice Being able to use the Exoskeleton on the road (but only on the "power strip" :beli ) :rejoice Free movement and very little having to shift.

Got the Trike/Bike blueprints so I can now fabricate the bike and no longer have to hoof it in this second area. :rejoice I might do a little more road building later on if folks don't do it for me.

I'm trying to figure out the best route for the

Sorta spoiler, I guess
pizza delivery
[close]

Since one of the requirements is "stays flat." So I'm sure climbing up a rope would utterly ruin that and nobody in the network so far has built a route or anything over that direction... So I might have to eat it and go scout that way before taking on the request.

Is it? Really weird to have bridges and ladders show up on the Network but not built roads for people to benefit from "those that came before." Until you do one yourself.

Yeah... not sure how that works, but that'd be too ironic if so. lol  And I wouldn't worry about finding stuff on building a trike, I think you repair your first one, but after that, just steal them or snag ones that people upload.  Stealing them though, you can store them in your garage for later....  if I remember correctly.

Sam Porter Bridges Pizza... is the pizza... for leveling up fast.

Bridge Grade went from like 4 to 32 just from a minute delivery via a bridge I built, a long-distance Bike/Tryke I built (since it's in no-mans land of no Networks/buildings) and getting there with it "flat" (though riding with a boost tilted it a little.  :doge)

This game is so satisfying though when you plan a great route and execute on it. Feel like a boss  8)

Wait until you get further. So much fun building routes.


My brother still hasn't played DS even though he likes MGS because he feels like it's going to be another one of those RDR2 kind of long ass cinematic story games and he finds those boring. I keep telling him that DS is like the exact opposite of that. DS is totally a gameplay af game.

Apparently, you can't take the story missions from ANY terminal. It has to be the last one. So I left the Weather Station (after unlocking forecasting which seems useless right now since the rain seems scripted) to do some missions while going back to the main road (since nobody has built roads this far/deep).

*Spongebob THREE HOURS LATER...*

Lost my bike fording rivers (reloading like 5 times), lost it near the scripted BT segment since rocks mean I can't get a good road over there so I abandoned it. Hopefully it'll be there when I load back in, but I got some deliveries done and got the third level Exoskeleton so now I should probably craft level 2 and 3 just to have them in my armory since the level 1 has been doing some decent work with the bike on battery from the Network.

Most folks are helping. I've been getting a bunch of "materials put in your road" notifications and the like, which is good. But there's no roads past the three outposts right now. :rage

I just want to Tryke across the map at this point. If there's one thing I wish Kojima would update it's the bike speed on boost. It still feels a little "slow" to me.

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... >:(

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

Well, got all the places to 5 stars finally. Now that leaves finding the last 40 or so memory chips I didn't get. :lol :doge

Please tell me you eventually built a zipline network.

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.
