I now think it's not so I'm going to give this ago. Just wondering where I'll find the time, oh well, I could skip some more meals and reduce sleeping hours by another 25%

Diego96 wrote:4. The overreliance on the minigun, the slowness of the shotgun, the generally low damage of other weapons and the lack of a rocket launcher or splash damage weapons makes gun balance weird.

Semfry wrote:Finished it (on hard, as mentioned above), I also found all the secrets. The theme is really unique and has been done very little (at least in SP). The lighting is so bright it leads to some greenings at times, but it actually kind of works in the context of intense desert sun. The occasional large element is cubic but the huge scale geometry and structures mostly carry it. The fog use is also a standout feature and subtly adds a ton to the interior parts.
Semfry wrote:I don't know about the limits of editing it, but in an intense map like this is feels like it could have a much faster reload to be more powerful without being dominant.
Semfry wrote:As mentioned above the Pulse Gun being easy to miss seems a little odd, and it could maybe at least be put in another secret at some point.
Semfry wrote:Is the improved Krall tracking an EXU thing? Krall can actually be pretty dangerous when they lead you properly.
Semfry wrote:The mini-Warlords having seemingly unavoidable projectiles felt a little strange, even if their damage is quite low
Semfry wrote:Also, I'll spoiler this question about something since I guess it's supposed to be a surprise► Show SpoilerIs there something I'm missing with the new weapon? It seems to have some kind of charge up effect as you shoot it, but the damage of both modes seemed to remain pretty underwhelming for how little ammo it has, so I ending up ignoring it except for putting some minor damage into the final boss. In the large area with the friendly Gasbags and secret in the pool I'm also curious what that item I got out of the cup did.
