    I was trying out their tester's famous OP Rambo melee build. I was lied to. :argh:

    I see no issue with just stopping Melee Skill at 140/150, since you start at a 50ish skill, this is basically Lv 1 to Lv 6
    Then Level 7 - 12 can be spent on pumping Automatic to gain access to LMG or anything else you want really. Some enemies have way too much HP, and machine gun burst is the only good answer to it.

    Yeah I know, but I was eager to see how did their tester go solo through the game with melee. Speechcraft. Dude never even tried to do it through combat. You cannot possibly go through all the though combat as a melee, and those 300hp crits are pure bullshit. Maybe he did crit for 300, but it was probably on the god damn rat or wasp. Thank god I used companions for some time so they are leveled up enough to use good snipers and have the best equipment possible, otherwise I'd be screwed as fuck much before institute bunker.

    You probably need another 900 hours playtime then the melee build will work like he said. :lol:
    840 hours more for me to get to that point.

    Here's my melee build btw

    Yeah, I couldn't duplicate that build myself. Melee with buddies - sure, but solo melee? It takes a crazy person.

    Wubba lubba dub dub, fellow gamers.
    I'm pickle Atomboy, here to say we're FINALLY on GOG!

    Okay, you got me, I was trying to mask my sincere happiness with those memes just now. Really, how cool is that?!
    https://www.gog.com/game/atom_rpg_p...e?pp=cb4e5208b4cd87268b208e49452ed6e89a68e0b8
    GOG! And they made us a page and everything! So cool! Like, to get on Steam you just pay some money and you're on Steam! But to be on GOG you actually need to have a descent game, so they'd approach you and ask would you like to be on GOG!
    I know this is happening, but still, it's so damn awesome!!!
    Jeez! First the Codex GOTY, now this. I can't keep myself from laughing and flailing about! Damn!

    GOG, you guys!!! Atom is on GOG! Like all those other cool games! Not the anime visual novel ones, the old RPG ones! So damn cool!

    Congrats on getting on GOG. You guys deserve it!

    Just finished it today myself;Clocked in around 36 hrs according to steam. Character was level 17 I believe.
    Small minor nuisances in the play-through but overall it's fantastic. The ending zone was a little ridiculous though (the last battle in fact)... As a Lone Wolf with only the dog as a companion I had to be drugged out of my eyeballs to even have a chance! Which is honestly a funny visualisation ... a guy with an LMG storming in having injected every drug known to man in his veins and having a bellyful of beets, onions and milk.

    Looking forward to the DLC / Mod scene!

    Finally - purchased as promised :salute:

    Of course you had to wait and release it just as I'm leaving on a trip and won't be able to play for a few days :rage:

    Party runs are way easier overall.
    This is due to how the enemy AI always go for the closest target.

    If you have 3 riflemen in your team, you can simply take turns taking hits by having one of them moving one tile closer to the enemy.
    Next turn, pull that guy back and have another take the shot. Rotate as needed.

    Also, I finally got the dog at level 13. :lol: It's only level 1, so it's harder to keep it alive. Maybe dev should make the encounter more consistent.
    I was going to dismiss it, but the Dog doesn't trigger Lone Wolf Penalty, so it's somewhat useful.
    Put it in front of me as a living shield, then tell it to run behind me at the start of turn 2.
    Dog can't self-heal in combat, that's why it's not as good as the rest of the party.
    Now I need a helmet and body armor for it.

    Propose change:
    Food usage shouldn't heal. Instead, it should increase the Regeneration factor for X hours to improve resting time.
    What messes up the mid-game economy is when you start substituting stim-packs with food, there's just no sense of cost anymore. I hardly use stims outside combat.

    And when you rest in the world map, always teleport the character back to the fireplace when they wake up. This is to prevent easy escape from random encounters.

    Also: Are stims too cheap in this game?
    I recall in Fallout, stims and super stims are pretty costly to get. You can't even get a super stim for the price of a 10mm pistol. But in this game, first village? 1 stim = 50 rubles. That's really nothing. Milk a cow twice and you got it.

    In a solo run it still sips your XP and lowers your stealth...

    Yeah but it's a living cover that I can use to stand in front of me in combat.

    Not worth the hassle. Let's be honest, you use the dog because you want a companion.

    I don't know about lowering the stealh, but it affects the XP. One of the best things about solo is that you level faster. The dog eats your XP and dies all the time. He is only good to kill insects and other animals, but even then you need heal it with food countless times.
