24 HOURS IN AND STILL HAVEN'T LOOPED
When From fanboys say git gud, what they mean is 'play the game until you have learned everything down rote'.
Here git gud is actually about skill building, and sucking/learning is actually fun.
Best game in ages, and I'm still shit at it 21 hours in.
All yall need to get great (gg) XD
Give me one good reason why you're not playing as best character 2015 right now
I have never gotten past him
I'm 10 hours in
>Become one with the BRRRRRRT for a solid three seconds before all my ammo reserves are gone
This guy and Y.V. are probably my two favorite characters at this point. Holy shit.
Because it's literally the game's easy mode. Pop pop and Braap break then game in half if you have something like a bazooka or better and his passive plus trigger fingers are also OP as fuck.
>watched ster play the game
>wanted to buy it
>but never buy early access out of principal
>about to get it recently
>find out about the indiebox version
I'll have to wait until February to get it, but collector's edition
>double nuke launchers
Lil Hunter only has 3 patterns.
If you're close he'll use bouncer shotgun
If you're mid range he'll use the eraser
If you're out of range he'll fly away and land on top of you and summon IDPD members.
Your best bet is melee and keep flinging his bouncer bullets against him.
Too busy bodying everything
except those fucking Mothsas based Eyes
that's like 3600000000000000 of my local currency, man
>capped at 30fps
It's a fun game but unless you're retarded you'll be able to loop consistently after about 15 hours and after 30 hours it gets really boring. Despite the randomization there is still barely any variety, and once you know about all of the bullshit there's not much else to do. Also some of the features have been broken for weeks and it's locked at 30fps for no reason but incompetence.
I can't really compare those things cause I haven't actually
I'm sad to admit it, but "this".
The core mechanics are great, but it gets too repetitive after those 20-30 hours of gameplay. I'd say the game needs more variety in terms of maps and mutations.
>Why the fuck are you here, go play it
W-well now. It hasn't really been on sale, has it?
Try and refute me instead.
Obviously you can't.
You all know is shit.
>can't refute it
>better start the le tricky hooke shitpoasty!
Fuck off, faggot.
Just use those guns the way you'd use them with other characters if you don't have recycle gland+throne butt. Just because you're steroids, doesn't mean you have to constantly shoot
>Steroids revolver run
>Get trigger finger
>Press the fire buttons slightly offkey from each other
>Become absolute madman
The perma-death element is similar but that's about it. Risk of Rain has longer single sessions, while Nuclear Throne is more about dying rapidly and restarting util you get a good weapon/mutation combo going at which point you can beat the whole game in a couple of minutes.
>kill lil hunter
>avoid his dying phase
>get killed by snow tank
>all the recent /v/ threads get me to go back in playing
>enjoying it more than ever
>just feeling generally happy all day and cant wait to play more later
thanks /v/, made my damn week.
Not the poster you were replying to, but if I could recognize it in his work I'd agree with you. His opinions haven't affected the game at all, so I'm not sure why you think it should affect my opinion on the game.
But then again, I'm sure you didn't play it, and just wanted to shitpost
Nuclear Throne is pure gameplay
It's honestly not comparable to something like Undertale, which coasts heavily on it's 'story' and characters
We do have meme triangles, though
>I-it's pixel and indie so it's bad!
Of course it is, my 12-year old friend, of course it is.
I'm glad /v/ likes Nuclear Throne. I got it about a year ago when it was still in early access, and beat it a couple times. It's got a lot of screen shake, explosions and stuff.
I wonder if the game is any different now than it was then, when it was getting updates like every week or two. The
Nuclear Throneboss fight was pretty lackluster. I guess I could reinstall and see for myself.
>game that gets talked about a lot
There's no such fucking thing as a meme game, and even if there was, you dippy fucks have labeled so many things you don't like meme games that it's lost all meaning by now. Just fucking stop, holy shit.
It's their new word. They need to call things they don't like that so they think they fit in.
Or something i don't fucking know, it's retarded regardless. Can't fucking dislike something apparently, no the thing has to be shit.
>unlock new green guy
>horror, must be a tough son of a bitch
>check him out
>gets one more mutation, whatever, it's ok I guess
>shits out a green ray that doesn't even kill a rat at the cost of your level
What a shit character
The beam grows in power the longer you fire it for, destroys enemy projectiles and, so long as it hits the enemy, refunds at least some of the cost. You should still only really use it on large enemies until level ultra, imo.
>finally beat palace
>psyching myself up for throne fight
>accidentally hit generator and die
I will never loop
>trying to get Melting's B-skin
>get to the scrapyard
fuck the crows
fuck the snipers on 2-3 that are always fucking off-screen
fuck the bandits
fuck the shitty salamanders because I can never fucking get boiling veins before then
and especially FUCK shitty 2-2 spawns where I can't use my active because everyone insists on crowding around the fucking throne vault portal
You'll do it anon, it's not that hard. Like the anon said always fucking pick up boiling veins.
>keep dying trying to kill the generators
holy fuck he shits out way too many green balls i dont understand how the fuck you're even supposed to loop if you don't have weapons that one shot the generator
Stand in the middle to bait the laser. When you hear the tremendous screeching of ancient metal, get the fuck out of the way.
Also, it starts spastically spamming the giant orbs if you're to its sides so try and stay in the middle. A melee weapon is amazing for nullifying them, too.
That extra mutation means you can actually get a good build and reduce RNG. If you hit enemies with the beam, the drop the rads back. Late-game, the beam is basically a built-in ultra weapon, and a pretty good one at that. Horror is great dude.
so why did they release the game in this broken state? And why doesn't the metascore reflect the fact that dailies don't work, the game crashes on every other launch, and navigating the menu in certain ways breaks it?
No way. You can harmlessly destroy the throne's energy balls for one. Big Dog is a joke, especially with long arms for another
With long arms, they get decent range. With Trigger Fingers or Stress, slow ones become way more viable as well. In fact I'd say melee is OP
Whats good about this game and why should I buy it
every review on steam is autistic as fuck and seems like overhype
Is there any character worth picking besides Crystal? The game is about being swarmed in bullets, and he is the only character that does anything about it.
To put it bluntly, it's highly fast-paced and has changing maps every time you play, meaning instead of memorizing patterns, it's actually getting used to a fairly large amount of enemies all at once. Your health pool is worth dick-all and three shots from just about anything will kill you instnatly even on the sturdier characters.
Half the fun is getting good at dodging and going fast, the other half is getting over-powered weapon/mutation combos and destroying everything until you're overwhelmed by a lot of enemies.
Because the entire point of capitalism is the capacity of the consumer to vote with your dollar, you buy his game, you're signifying you approve of his business practices as well as his product.
There is no separating the work from the creator because this isn't art, it's a business, and you're an idiot.
If you want good defense, Eyes is probably even better than crystal. With slower bullets+stronger TK, projectiles basically can't hit you, but he's great even without those mutations
Anyway, crystal isn't that great late-game, aggression amd/or ammo stuff is more important there. Every character can work.
In terms of dealing with bullets:
Fish can roll to avoid bullets
Melting has blood explosions to destroy bullets
Eyes pushes them away with his special
sterroids and Y.V. have faster rates of fire which means you should rush the enemy before it can have enough time to swarm the screen with bullets
Rebel's minions can act as meat shields
Plant goes fast making it a bit easier to get out of the way of bullets
and Horror can destroy bullets with his special
>Get Throne Butt
>Thought the different characters would get different icons portraying themselves for that particular mutation
>It's Crystal everytime
What a dissapointment of a game
I bought it and played 5 hours and I think it's great.
These days, I've become apathetic towards games, jaded I guess. So I always give up after 30-45 minutes. Or, I die or something bad happens in the game and I give up immediately and just close the game.
But with NT, I actually keep playing and trying again and again. I tilt a bit though when I die after getting far, so then I run around wildly and sometimes just die immediately again. But I keep trying. So that's a nice feeling. Not giving up.
Not sure when I'll reach the Throne. I'm not sure what I should be doing differently.
>People aren't allowed to discuss video games
Nuclear Throne is great. It's good. It's fine.
But how the fuck do I git gud at Gun Godz?
Yeah the only real tell is that the chest don't shine.
Good news is that it's not a problem on Loops because there's bullets fucking everything; that chest is getting shot.
Now the Health Chest mimics, that's another level of fuck you.
>Finally get to YV's mansion as Steroids
>Unlock Golden Grenade Launcher
>Go to play as him again
>He only gets one 1 Golden Weapon
>Still gets the revolver in his other hand but is empty
any good strategies for Fish? thought he was shit at first but I really like him now
By far the least annoying rare monster.
Fuck big gators though, flak ball out of fucking nowhere every fucking time.
Bonus points if they spawn from a cocoon in crystal caves, it's like the fucking spanish inquisition.
