You can Google a few Docket codes as well... a little hit and miss but I found quite a few that I was able to redeem. They appear in your inventory in-game and you redeem them at the quartermaster. Not tried that bit yet but confirm they're in your inventory when you load up your character.

I'm around as normal tonight.

https://www.reddit.com/r/dyinglight/ has a list of active codes in the sidebar but it only shows 2 of those above. I can't find any more that aren't expired.

On tonight.

Ha! Since you're posting today I guess petrol station flowers and a foot rub saved your bacon!

We just re-did a load of quests on the driving part on hard. It was quite a challenge even against lesser zombies but the worst part is it is fucking brutal on your xp loss when you die. I was surprised how much of the quests I don't remember doing so I'm definitely happy to replay the game. Maybe even kick it up to Nightmare as I'm not sure I'd do it a third or fourth time.

Nuts pre-emptively ragequit. He says he's bored with the game but honestly I think the schizophrenia of the main character is giving him nightmares. "Yeah, yeah I'm just a good guy and I want to hel......screw you jerk you're boring ahahaha where's the nearest zipli.....oh god the horror, so many innocent dead and it's all my fau.....of course I'll help you find your lost puppy in the middle of this FUCKING APOCALYPSE!"

Cool, don't mind taking a break from it for a bit or carrying on, the DLC will keep rolling in so revisiting it later in the year should still provide new content.

I hear nightmare zombies are sponges so I'd rather do it on a difficulty we're likely to finish.

I think my quests were broken. I went to Asmir allah akhamed or whatever he is called and it cashed in about 5 quests I'd already done with you guys. Then I seemed to be re-doing quests I'd already done... bit odd really. It was good tidying up anyway.

As for hard...
2 or 3 runners, if you're not prepared, caught out in the open or at low health a couple of hits and you're dead.
The bigger zeds that knock you over are lethal in a group because if you're grounded your probably going to die after 2 or 3 hits.
The heavy armoured zeds that charge, if you're in your car, your insta-dead.
Medikits are not instant (healing each other is)
You can't see the damn volatiles.

But as chains said the crippling part is the Diablo style loss of XP after dying... sure you can make it up again quickly but you lose a lot if you die it was a little soul destroying.

I'm sort of with Mach on the difficulty. The game by design, like Diablo, is progressing you through hard... going to nightmare early we'd just find we're underpowered and don't have all the skills and perks we need to survive.

I recommend if you're at a loose gaming end, going on and playing on hard and levelling up your character. From what I've read legendary skills make the game easy again eventually.

Oh and dockets are a bit of a waste of time. Decent sort of weapons you'll probably come across playing anyway.... they're like top end for your level type of weapons but all the ones I got were double handed, and I prefer the single handed ones, blades and swords especially as lopping off heads is pretty darn effective way to dispatch zeds in a group.

War Thunder delivering a fine evening of entertainment there, along with PoE one of the best free to play games I've had the pleasure of playing!

I'm here Thursday then gone for the next 3 gaming nights in sunny Portugal.

Bundlestars has Flatout 4. As Mach is out the country I've got him a copy and picked one up.

Recommend we grab this!

For a game that's retailing at £29.99 on Steam I wasn't blown away by my first race... but we'll see how it plays with us all on. Looks closer to Flatout 2 than the previous offerings.

I'm not around this week anyway so have a good one all.
