As some of you may already know I wasn't going to buy this for 3ds but wait for the wii U version (feel I'd be more likely to play it more on there and actually finish it) but I cracked under how great everyone was saying it is and bought it.

So I've played up to the cargo barge mission just after you reach the colony & it really is top stuff, quite glad I didn't wait now. - Anyone else have it or considering to take the plunge?

I have it, though it'll be competing with M&L for my time whilst travelling to/visiting my family. I think I'm a good half way through though.

I barely play my 3DS, so am a little put off getting it on there & I need to get a charger for my 3DS.

But when I have played it, I did really enjoy and is the sort of thing that suites a handheld that who knows, I might turn my 3DS on one day and just download it.

I have joined the league of owners of SteamWorld Heist - couldn't avoid a second steam-related strategy game! Grin My thoughts when I've had a bit of a play.

I finished the outskirts section on this last night & the first boss was pretty smart, also what characters are everybody sticking to? I've went for Piper, Seabrass & Ivan though I think I am going to take the one's I haven't used so much back to older missions to level them up a bit.

At the moment I've only got Piper, Seabrass and Sally... I just got utterly destroyed in a mission last night because I'd equipped Piper with a gun that she could only fire if she hadn't moved first. Duh! Even the default pea shooter would have been more useful than that!

That type of weapon is tough to get used to as you have to keep her close to the back of your group & should always be moved last.

I did the mission by keeping Piper back to cover Seabrass and Sally's descent from the back-up bots that kept appearing. Seabrass bought the robofarm - which was terrifying, until the game told me he'd be brought back to life. Now I've got a tactic, I'm keeping the gun. Thumbs Up!

I'd also say that gun may only be suitable for certain missions, like the ones that don't force you to stay on the move.

Having now reached the point that you mentioned five posts ago, Jas, I can answer your question. Grin I reckon the team you arrived at might be the best, though a high-level Sally could be useful (some of the powers she gains make her an absolute killing machine). I like having the options, for sure.

Also, confirmed: barring a huge turnaround between now and the end, this is a brilliant game. Thumbs Up!

DLC lands tomorrow! The Outsider, it's called, and will apparently blend in with the rest of the game instead of being a new chapter after the main story, or something. I am supremely up for this. Grin Anyone else?

I've still not returned to finish the main story so I'll be passing for now.

As I tweeted, it's a pleasure to be back in this world. Loving what the DLC has added - so far I've cleared all the new bits in the first chapter and am looking forward to moving on to Chapter 2.
