Deep Rock Galactic

Spectated a GWJ squad on Discord last night. *Eyes wide* Buckets, things ramp up in that game!
There was a BET-C and I haz a fraid.

Leeches? Breeders? Giant enemies that make everyone chant "Butt!" periodically? I have a long way to go. I can't even drink beer yet!

Don't worry - 21 comes sooner than you think....

...oh, you meant in-game.

Don't be afraid, BET-C is great once you get the ticks off of her and reboot her.

In a fit of hubris I ran my first mission as a Digger at hazard 3. I'm super-glad I looked up the controls for calling in a resupply (last few missions had me facing bosses with a pickaxe and a smile) cuz that flame-thrower guzzles ammo like mad!
Some of those cave layouts are brutal! This mission was in the Magma biome and things were blowing up and burning and collapsing and erupting and then there were bugs and flying bugs and then all of them died and I came home a hero.
I'm also glad that the different characters share mission progress, resources. I wasn't sure how that would be implemented so I drug heels on trying another class. Now I need to work on utilizing Bosco more effectively.

Edit: First assignment complete. Dreadnoughts can die in a fire.

...
And they did.

Damn you, Deep Rock Galactic! I was standing on the ramp! My feet were firmly planted inches from the gate when you threw me back into the pit and left me to die.

Also, flying enemies suck. Flying enemies that grab you and fly away suck even more. Pulled me off a ledge, dropped me into a swarm far below the mule tracks. Retreated into the wrong looping tunnel and the drop ship was always on the other side of a wall. Fun times!

The latest DRG patch just dropped today with the two new mission types and new cosmetics.

Here are the patch notes.

Caught a bit of the dev stream of the latest mission update today, they looked a lot of fun! It's been a while since I've played... time for me to jump back in I think.

We played the new mission types tonight and had a pretty good time.

The on site refining is a lot of fun. You get to skate on the pipelines you build and it's pretty exciting, although it can get a bit frustrating to find a path for your pipeline when there you have to go up a lot to get to the well.

The escort duty was ok, and it ends on a sort of final boss type of way that is pretty cool. I also enjoyed the sections where you are riding the digger and a swarm chases you from behind.

Sir Dodger, Nivek and I have been playing a lot lately. I think we all have Full Team Ahead now. We'd love more people to come and play with us.

Are you on Steam or Gamepass? I'm up to play on Steam whenever. Some of us still group up on Discord.

I've just started out on a new XSX. Are there groups that would welcome a newbie?

I have been playing and hour or two a day on xsx. Amazingly fun game. The pug groups have all been great as well.

Oh, we're Steam. Sorry, should have said.

I'm in too - just send an invite. UMOarsman on Steam

I've been meaning to get back into DRG again. Still low level but happy to team up with other Goodjers. I'm on the Euro side of the pond, I'll also keep a check out on the GWJ Discord.

For anyone playing on Steam, feel free to add me and shoot me an invite whenever.

I am interested in joining GWJer's as well. Newbish here so be warned

I've started playing this on Gamepass and I might be addicted. If anyone is still playing there, hmu!

Would love to find more GWJers to play this with. I mostly play on Steam, but just started over with Xbox Gamepass because my real-life friends have started playing on that platform and gave that game a try. I ran through the thread and added people who posted recently, hope none of you mind.

Would just like to bump a save file transfer routine I saw for anyone (cough cough me) who has put 100+ hours and doesn't want to restart completely, it's easy and safe to transfer your Steam save to GamePass and vice-versa:

Reddit thread on how to do this

Or the video version!

Two new biomes coming to DRG!

I wanted to start new on the xbox, so I've got a lowbie on xbl if folks want to friend me up there as well!
