Whilst originally 3.6 felt pretty light, as it turns out, the new law system brings some cool new gameplay in the form of an improved hacking mechanic requiring crypto keys; different laws within different regions and selling illegal goods at various new locations within Stanton, such as the new junkyards.
Being able to rent and buy vehicles allows for reasons to make credits (I'm looking at trade and transportation gameplay this patch), and with components persisting even when a vehicle is destroyed, upgrading them now make sense. You can, so I've been told, successfully log out in a bed to save your location now, too.
VOIP now includes local chat turned on by default, allowing us to talk and listen to anyone on the server nearby (I can't wait to tell someone to lower their weapon or I'll shoot); we can hail other ships and are automatically assigned a COMM channel for entering a vehicle, allowing us to chat to everyone onboard.
One of my favourite new features is the improved face tracking, which now can be used with a hold key bind. As well as a new control layout/setup that I've invested time into, flight will feel fantastic this time.
Thank you Gray, who understands my lack of games to play even tho I call myself a gamer and went on to let me know the gift is thanks for Brigade efforts, in which Gray recognises my passion and dedication. Well, you are very welcome and I hope I can continue to do the same for many members to come. I'm very much looking forward to entering Enderal, tomorrow morning!
The dates are in for the CCC event above (click the pic):
6th July, 20:00
If you'd like to participate, please let me know. I'll be joining them all, if time permits. Take note that the events will go forward if 3.6 allows it, so if the bug-monster general (who I've named El Loco) arrives with their armies, I'll keep you posted.
On offer ATM. Co-op. One of the other games I was talking about was 'A Way Out' - a prison break co-op game, looks very story driven in terms of interactivity. Still searching for the FPS co-op game; I'll make a comment if I find it.
