    Here you go. Worth mentioning that, when fully powered up, enemies drop gold-looking tokens until you've collected 200 (?) after which they'll drop energy tokens to recharge your guard/barrier. The token counter rapidly runs down and then you start over.

    So, in a move I'm totally blaming on you buggers, I've recently dug out my ancient 360 and set it up with my old monitor in tate just to play the few Cave games I have on there. Pleasantly surprised to find what I thought was plain old Mushi was actually Futari so £10 and an incredible amount of faffing about later (it's impossible to enter a password with capital letters via stick-only input on a 360, who knew?) I now have Black Label. God Mode is indeed wonderfully insane but I think I need to get some semblance of skill back first! Original mode it is, for now. Looking forward to a bash on EspGaluda II and DDP this weekend also. The release of Esp.Ra.De. shares a fair amount of the blame, to be fair, as it's one of my favourite shooters ever. I'm just lacking a decent control method for the Switch. The stick drift on my JoyCon randomly sending me upscreen to die is not the intended way to play it I feel. I've an 8bitDo controller on the way that hopefully has a decent d-pad and I'll probably end up picking up a convertor for my stick if an acceptable one exists. Fucking expensive habit this, isn't it?
  3. The maddest part of that article for me is that Gibson seems to have been responsible for re-introducing NATO straps to the watch world.

    Cave games are 60% off on Steam if anyone doesn't have them yet. https://store.steampowered.com/developer/Cave
  5. Just the Izanagi's Burden quest. It was impossible to complete for quite a while and they supposedly fixed it this week but have just broken it in a different way instead. I got the Gofannon key which just disappeared on use instead of unlocking part of the quest. Seen some redditors saying some of the rare quest rewards just disappear as well. edit: @K That too? Christ. Ah, it's not so bad. Just have one player on the island lobbing magic balls up to the main bit.
  6. They rotate daily unless I'm confusing it with one of the other trillion things to do in this game. It is frustrating they're broken still though. I could be working towards Izanagi's, Jotunn and whatever the other 'craft 10 legendary frames' quest is working towards all at the same time. The alternative is do a shit-ton of forges and then do it all again when fixed which I'm not enamoured with. Don't mind doing a few a week but there's too much to do for me as it is.
  7. Besides break them (again) so it's impossible to get Izanagi's Burden? Otherwise, I dunno, aren't they the same as before?
  8. For Infernal Sea, definitely, as they're the only band in that time slot. Last year, none of us got into Hundred Year Old Man when they were the only option as people were queuing down the corridors. Also, it's sold out this year so there might be issues if one band is way more in demand than the other in the same slot, it's happened before. You can usually cram in eventually, mind.
  9. @max renn It is all one building, yes. Tips? Pace yourself, remember to eat, earplugs, go see Big Business. There's a bunch of us going if you want to experience the full thrill of standing off to the side, nodding semi-enthusiastically and sipping a warm pint. There might even be a pithy comment or two.
  10. It does, you have to change it from the Start screen for reasons unknown. I much prefer it also, but be warned: there's a fair bit of combat dialog you may miss. They do like to waffle on mid-battle.
  11. There's a Smooth Turning option in the settings on PS4 at least, I noticed it earlier. It makes the X and O turns rotate you rather than snap in increments. This is pretty great in VR, isn't it? Barring anything more than ten feet in front of you being fuzzy. I spent half hour in the landing bay just gawping at the ships and waving at aliens.
  12. It just came naturally for me through leveling guns and frames and twatting around on Hydron/Helene. I've stalled at MR19 now, mainly because I've got most of what I craved and can't be arsed to research more. There's always something else to be doing if you're capping out. Like play Sekiro!
  13. Pretty sure it's a hard cap unlike syndicate standing. You could visit Ticker, stack up bonds and just hand in up to the cap everyday. Then go do something else until reset, like MR ranks.
  14. I'd forgotten about Baro in all the update excitement. There goes my attempt at earning free plat by buying an extra Jolt a few months ago...
  15. QoL updates coming soon. Including: Individual Extraction: Non-Wave Endless! You are now able to extract from Survival, Excavation, and Defection missions independent of your squad. FINALLY. Um, yeah, that's not a thing as far as I know. Bug, I assume? Annoying for sure. Excellent! You can now fill your orbiter with floofs because that is a perfectly normal thing to do. Honestly, they're fine. You both have Nezha, there is no content he can't do. Pick one with quick run-and-gun missions it'll be over in no time! Cheers! Will do, only been on briefly past couple of nights.
  16. With Gara, you can cast Splinter Storm on the Defense target for a 90% DR. Nezha can use Safeguard to cast Warding Halo on allies too, which I'd never bothered with until someone in a sortie cast it on my Saryn and it basically kept me alive for half an hour. A lot of the 'hard' missions in Warframe are really not that bad at all with a half decent set up. If you've done a decent length Survival then you've probably faced that level of enemy difficulty already and shrugged it off. I was scared to step into an Arbitration for ages but the worst thing that happens is you die and have to drop out. The other players are either still going or dropped out before you so it's not like they can give you shit for being rubbish either! I should do more Sorties but I frequently look at the mission types and can't be arsed. Are you on PC, @revlob? Happy to do the friend thing in the future if so. I just ignored the last lot!
  17. Oof, I hope you have an affinity booster! Certainly! Much like Xur, expect disappointment and then you can be pleasantly surprised when something good does finally turn up. Which is probably next week for consoles!
  18. Argh. The latter. It'll be back probably but if you like sci-fi pew pew guns, it's worth it. It's a gun you should own but I can't honestly say I've used it that much. And I have a riven for it.
  19. Just Primed Reach for me. Everything else on PC is pretty bum. Consoles get Primed Charged Shell and Supra Vandal, which is good for a laugh. Re:re: excavations. Try waiting for a Lith Excavation, kills two birds with one stone as you're cracking relics and earning cryotic on the side. Or vice versa.
