    Yes and no. You can far too frequently do this, which I also dislike, but there are quite a number of situations where you can't and an NPC will get pissed at you. There is a crime system, particular in more civilised areas in the game, but even that is too lax. They had the foundation for a great system here, but kind of squandered it. Same with stealth.

    SpongeRats that don't die to 2+ shots of high level lazor pistols are a russian classic.

    "Senpai"?

    Hmm, I should have rolled a high Charisma char instead.

    Yeah, raids were pretty obnoxious.
    Interesting. I did it already, wonder what's there to change, just a tiny ok quest.

    Overall the game plays like it still in the EA. Especially in the new big locations, to say they're half-baked would be generous. Like there's no music track for Phalanx base. Not a unique one, just any. Another example of an EA game which get slapped a release badge and was thrown on the counter.
    The problem with them that most have mech damage type which isn't great. Still, viable.

    This is why I'm holding off for now. The day after I start playing they're going to announce a huge update or something. It's a game in itself of who blinks first. I waited out Shadow Tactics for five years before they finally relented and announced an expansion. Germans are sneaky like that. These Russians won't get the better of me eith- who said that?! Mad? I ain't mad. Merely a responsible consumer in an irresponsible world. So help me god, I will have that collector's edition.

    Let's hope they sell enough copies (neither too much nor too litle) so that Encased gets expanded and refined and next game be even better. Yesterday I asked Devs on Discord, and they said they're still 100% independent. Encased, ATOM and Stoneshard are 3 Russian RPG studios that should be on every Codexer's radar. No wonder they make good and based games, devs from all three studios post on Codex. Owlcats don't. Enough said

    My only worry for good indie devs is: how weak are they to SteamBabies tears. How fast will they nerf their mechanics to the point of them becoming meaningless, just so Robert, NY, ze/zer, won't leave negative review

    For example: Why NPCs barely react to you stealing their items? Because SteamBabies and Discord trannies complained how they can't loot everything without consequences. I mean even here, in this very thread, you have retards who complain that when you press ALT, small million of interactive things or lootable items appear which leads to his nerveous breakdown because he doesn't have enough capacity to loot everything. Do you listen to yourself sometimes? Nigga...just don't press ALT. And don't loot everything like it's IV Crusade. Problem gone

    My char: what are you doing working in male profession woman its 1976 there was very little womhyn mechanics and truck drivers back there... heck there is very little of them even now. Well at least she has no danger hair and tattoos.

    Game is very fun so far got to the Stop, fixed everything executed all the criminal scum robbers cause its not 2021 Kwanzania and found cool riffle.

    Not sure if my char is not too Jack of all trades but checked synergies and you don't need more of 6 or 7 to get them, I like all those synergies like 6 in strength giving you acess to intimidation or 6 in fortune better loot later on in survival tree those perks are even better than in Trutograd.

    P.S. Noticed that game lacks kneeling animation, its bit cheap to not add it to be honest but hope they will fix it in patch.

    Never said that. I rarely loot junk in RPGs, unless it's needed. My char has 1 strength and hasn't even reached half his encumbrance limit yet. I just said that placing random junk everywhere is shit design. Because it is shit design. You are just polluting the screen and making it easier for the player to miss the relevant stuff in the middle of all the junk with no real benefit in exchange. This game has its qualities but itemization is not one of them. Besides, there's barely any hand placed item, and those I've found were uninspiring at best. So far it's been very unfulfilling in that regard.

    This is a trend pushed by mainstream devs like Bethesda and Larian btw. For some reason their audience likes being able to loot used toilet paper from trash bins and other useless stuff. I'd appreciate if indie devs stopped copying them because the reason I play their games is because they don't have the need to cater to that audience.

    Dunno, the game kinda has that "been there, done that" feeling to it and plays on autopilot for lack of a better word. Enemies die like flies, sometimes you get these gated skill checks ala New Vegas, where no matter how you specced you're still gonna pass something without much trouble.

    The setting is not very original too. Granted i'm only in the first base with zombie scientists, but still.

    Oh and the art style is straight out of Prey

    Since game have no combat challenges, I decide to make "access all content" build and made 10 Perception/Int/Cha/Psy build.
    Luck aslo looks like it could uncover content, but oh well...

    I haven’t played it yet, but as-described: this type of loot system is absolutely garbage. Sykar your point about self-control I kinda get, but why populate the game with literal dirt if it does nothing. How does that advance the RP side of things?

    Again I haven’t played it yet so maybe there’s an angle I don’t appreciate, but this sounds horrible.

    I finally started this game. I apparently took the wrong car when leaving the starting location and they murdered me, and my last save was 45 minutes earlier before all of the tutorials.

    Hmmm that is not true. A lot of it is about container type,you won't find a nuke in the plant container or trash one. All the janitor containers have set type of loot in them. Also there quite a lot of hand placed loot too. Fallout have a lot more random loot than this game.
