    Fairly sizeable patch! I haven't been having many problems with the game, aside from FPS dips during combat, I think it fixed it for me.

    Only a couple hours in, and I already know me and this game will be best friends! ❤️

    Really enjoying it so far. I absolutely love Colt's personality, and the use of "regular" language and profanity in the game's tips, lol. I can feel a lot of people had fun making this game, it oozes personality.

    Damn... this actually looks pretty dope! I used to love brawlers when I was a kid, but this genre sort of died out. Double Dragon and Streets of Rage was the shit, yo!
    Genre never really lend itself to 3D very well, until Yakuza came out.
    Will deffo be keeping an eye out for this, looks fun af!

    The halvings you mention, is that the 4 year cycle I keep hearing about?

    Been playing the latest Wario game with my wife and my kid. If you like silly coop games on the Switch, deffo check it out too. Kinda pricy but you know... Nintendo.

    The first hour and a half of this game is honestly pretty bad and tedious, but as it finally gives some abilities I’m having a lot more fun with it.

    Crypto nerds will probably give me shit for this, but I really enjoy Coinbase. It has the best most clean UI of them all, and I tried a bunch. Thing is, lately they've been increasing their fees more and more, specially after they went public. You can offset a bunch of these, by installing Coinbase Pro on your phone, depositing USD, then convert to any crypto you like. A little more work, but no fees.
    Another one that I've started using recently, mostly because of the really great APY they offer, is Blockfi. I think they offer 5% APY on BTC and a few other cryptos, and 8.25% APY if you put your dollars on GUSD. These stablecoins are not risk free, but that's a hell of a lot better than the 0.01% my bank offers. 😛
    If you wanna go power user up this bitch, then you have BinanceUS, Kucoin (great for altcoins), Kraken, etc.

    I Dollar cost average (DCA) in index funds and ETF's that reflect markets that might keep growing. I'd be weary of individual stocks or even crypto... unless you go long on your buys.
    If you don't know what DCA is, it's basically a technique that entails investing a fixed amount of money in the same fund or stocks every month over a long period of time. That fixed amount is usually a percentage dictated by you, when you analyze your finances. (How much can you invest out of your paycheck every month, the more you put, the more money you'll have working for you.)
    I wouldn't park money on a savings account, you're loosing money to inflation, your money is literally loosing it's value every year (2%/3% annually on average, more so in 2021) so you need to make sure you're hedging for inflation at the very least. 
    If you don't know what hedging is, say inflation is 3% that year, and you have all your investments on the S&P500, which makes on average 8% a year. You actually made 5%. So you didn't loose money to inflation, you actually made some back since you put your money to work while you slept. That's hedging in a nutshell as I see it. There's other ways, gold, silver, real estate, etc. They're called assets (vs liabilities).
    That said, it's wise to have some money saved, it's called a emergency fund (usually enough money to survive 6 months without being employed, case anything goes wrong and you need access to cash, fast) to have more money than that pile up on a savings account, is widely regarded as a bad financial decision, since that money isn't being put to work for you, your bank does it for you without you even knowing, and you only see 0.01% back in interest.
    As for which Index Funds you think are the best, I always revert to index funds that reflect the whole US stock market, and other index funds that reflect the international market, and the S&P500. You're basically investing in thousands of companies at once, it's a big basket, so even if one company does horribly that year, you have all the others affecting the average, these things historically keep going up, decade after decade.
    If the market is down, you buy. If the market is up, you buy. You don't need that money tomorrow anyway, this is mostly for retirement so forget about daily, or even monthly market fluctuations.
    In the US there's retirement accounts like the RothIRA where your investments grow tax free, and others like the 401k where you invest your money before it's taxed (usually through your employer), study what options you have in EU / your country for retirement accounts, and look at the expense ratio of the index funds that they offer. The sooner your start DCA'ing, the sooner you can retire.
     
    As for crypto... I allocate 5% of my total portfolio to cryptocurrencies. It's a riskier investment, but having some exposure to it, so far has been my best decision in terms of investments, even with such a low percentage.
    As for which crypto to buy, I simply DCA on BTC, ETH, ADA and leave most shitcoins alone.
     
    As thiago said, dedicate some time to read about this shit, you'll be thankful you did when you get old.

    @Radu, this is what we call the "Guided Tour", it guides the player for 2-3 hours after the tutorial map. It's a necessity, before we built up the guided tour, players just felt completely lost, lacking a lot of knowledges from very basic concepts of the game.
    We decided to host this through the real maps, so the player can already spend time on them and learn informations that will be useful once this phase is lifted, but for a few hours we have to force the player to go through some key steps.
    Once you get through this, you become free to explore the maps and campaign.
    But still, we can't just let the players completely in the unknown to solve the big puzzle, there are "leads" that guide the player through the process. You can do these in any order you want, and as for previous games you can disable markers and other options if you want.
    The puzzle itself isn't the only important part from the game, it's also how you want to build up an arsenal, there are optionnal missions and vignettes we created to get some extra equipement/lore/rewards (which are usually harder to solve), learning the maps can also become very valuable (finding out new paths, new locations, shortcuts ...), especially in PvP... How you want to play with the loop!

    I'm sorry that it feels like too much information is thrown at the player, I actually have to agree on that. It's not necessarily a very complex game, but it's quite unorthodox. It takes a bit of time for the player to feel comfortable with it.

    SEC won't control shit, they can't even control their own money. BTW, it's still fine to get in BTC now, you can DCA as HP said and buy the correction during the bull market, easy to say, not easy to have the balls to buy when it's down 20%.
     
    I think the easiest is to put a fixed percentage of what you earn in BTC each months (dca), my personal taste is to put 20% of my monthly cash savings in BTC, and don't watch for the next 2-3 halvings.
    I just don't buy when we get close to the market cycle top, and keep it do double down once we get at lower risk levels.
     
    Just get started guys, start with small amounts and get into it asap.

    6 hours in and I've just shaken the training wheels. It does like to take it's time to explain how to "break the loop" which I honestly don't mind. theres a lot of mechanics and systems that needs a thorough explanation since it feels like the game opens up a lot after that.
    Some signs of a bumpy launch. I would have loved to try out online on my first level when making my first assassination but I couldn't connect to the online service yesterday. The game itself works amazingly good on PS5 with the 60fps mode.
    A funny incident with my first AI Julianna encounter. I had just setted up a turret for no apparent reason in the rooftop next to Colts aparment and when she showd up, I just ran past my turret off the rooftop and she just ran into my turret and got shred to pieces instantly. So my first Julianna encounter lasted less than 30 seconds.
    I quite like it so far!
