    Hate I'm having to play this in small chunks but absolutely loving it.

    I ran into the guy that gives you the robot missions by accident, didn't even see him in the dark.

    Half the side missions I've encounter where just from exploring random places or hidden areas.

    So electric mods work better on robots and energy mods on humans right? Also, man guns and armor degrade so fast and it takes a lot of parts to repair them

    Same. Was kind of disappointed with the results

    Maybe there will be consequences in the future, but I didn't notice anything besides one group being disappointed.

    Yeah, maybe I should have specified and said the lack of anything meaningful happening disappointed me. I think TrustyPatches chose the other option, and it seemed like it was more memorable.

    Any chance I have to fuck over large corporations and those that serve and have slavish devotions to them, I'm taking it.

    This game is one of the best crafted decision based story games I’ve ever played. Decisions circle back around. The writers do an excellent job of keeping everything gray and sometimes the decision that seems obvious wrt the power to the people aspect may end up being something that would work out better otherwise. It really keeps you on your toes once you experience the first time

    Also, sometimes your dialogue skill allows you to alter the perceived direction of a decision after you’ve made it. I recommend investing in your dialogue skills heavy. It’s the best part of the game

    In all Fallout style games, I max out persuasion, lie, intimidate first.

    Usually always use the dialog skills in conversations. Also like that you can use science/medical for answers for XP boosts. I've been focusing on ranged weapons, lock picking, dialog, for my skills.

    Yeah it's a really phenomenal game. Going to probably try and do a speed run on supernova to go for the platinum

    Parvati is too good a character to leave home. I usually take her and the Vicar because he is fucking hilarious and his companion arc ending is 10/10

    It can't be a costume accessory. Has to be a real space's choice helmet. Not sure if that's what's going on with yours but that's what happened with me. Was wearing that moon man helmet and it didn't work. Went and bought an actual spacers choice helmet and it worked

    It seems to be a real helmet and like a workers shirt which is armor level 12. Maybe I have to go buy it? I don't know.

    Just finished over the weekend and reloaded to get a new ending. Pretty happy with the relatively short length...ain’t nobody got time for an 80 hour game.
