I do wonder if the bio description for the mechwarriors you can hire has any impact in game.

I'm not sure how that's related to injury time, but I think the descriptions do affect the base stats of a rookie warrior just like the character creations process.

Loving Battletech. Not having any technical issues with it, only thing that makes me fume is how misleading the difficulty skulls are.

I know right!?! 2 1/2 skulls - come up against 12 mechs of 50 tonnes or more. FARK!

MGSV takes away most of your "stuff" half way though the game.
Making me replay the early missions again for resources and new mercenaries is not cool. Especially as if you take too long your mercenaries which are sick can die permanently and I have only a small handful of S rank legendary mercs

Were in Iraq as the result of a democracy asking for us to come in there. Its not an invasion.

It is rather annoying when the game says that enemy has a lance and it turns out to be two or more lances. Or when the mission is to assassinate and extremely heavy mech so you negotiate for more salvage but then the extremely heavy mech turns out to be a 70t or 80t tank.

Currently running two Orions, a Battlemaster and a Highlander. Both the Orions are fitted with an AC20++ for extra damage and they just melt whatever comes their way.

Why dont you guys just backup your save game ?
That way if bugs or terrible AI or Just broken random number generator screws you good and hard you can just reload the game from a save state.

Iam sure the game will be patched down the road especially since plenty of copies sold
Are there any clan mechs ? Or is it just the inner sphere units ?

It could be deliberate though. A way to show the poor intel that a merc unit is sometimes provided?

Not that I've noticed. But I haven't been playing it that solidly yet.

MGSV has Microtransaction for the single player game, WTF Konami
You need to either grind the multiplayer for stupid Coins which are premium currency or pay real money. In order to get the Legendary weapons and base development

Honestly the Regular weapons are all pretty solid and dont really need Legendary weapons. But not being able to have 3rd or 4th base sucks.

Time.

I never sunk an extra dollar into the game and have something like 4 bases. They're not fully developed, of course but they were generating income/resources/research.

You're right about the weapons though, you reach a critical point where you have the guns you need and everything else is just fluff.

My usual loadouts:

Pistol: Silenced Tranq gun.
Sidearm: Silenced rubber-bullets Uzi
Longarm 1: Silenced Tranq sniper rifle
Longarm 2: Whatever 'fun' gun I was keen on, usually something loud and angry to offset my stealth/non-lethal weapons. Or, a rocket launcher if I was expecting armour.

I should probably log back in to see what's happened to my Diamond-Dog bros in the last 6 months or so.

Nope, no upgrades. On the contract screen you get the brief given by the employer and also one or two sentences given by your assistant that either talk about the reliability of the intel or what kind of lance would be best.

The devs have commented on it and said that it's a bug.

Im still loving in despite its quirks. Played a 4 skull contract last night expecting some spicy salvage. But no, ended up only facing 1 80T tank, 1 Tbolt and 2 Catapult C1s. Bummed as it was 4 skulls so dropped by pay out in favour of salvage.

Banshee piloted by a Gladiator spec pilot is a melee death machine.

Finished the current lot of scenarios in Frostpunk last night. Picked the game up on recommendation form Darkhorse and had fun. It's quite challenging to begin with, but after you determine the needs for each scenario, it becomes easier to make choices on what to build / research in each scenario.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/853140/A...anicus_Dominus/

There's an Adeptus Titanicus game in early access that doesn't look like complete trash.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/573100/B...othic_Armada_2/

BFG 2 now has a store page. There's a few interesting tidbits on the page; Necrons and Tyranids are also getting campaigns which as a Necron player I'm excited for and it takes in the Gathering storm setting.

Meanwhile Slay the Spire released their third character and it's a ton of fun.
