    PAYDAY 2

    One of my mates hooked me up with beta access to this on the weekend. Needless to say I spent more time than was healthy playing it!

    I loved Payday: The Heist and it was great fun playing with mates, however you just could not help and compare it to L4D in certain aspects.

    Payday 2 is nothing but a huge improvement on the first one. The missions are more fun and there are more weapons! You can now actually use the money you steal on heists to buy more weapons, upgrades, attachments, gadgets, masks etc. The missions are great fun too with some of them being "multi-day" missions where they are spread out from between 2 and 7 days (ie: "levels"). What's really cool is that the later day missions get easier or harder dependant on how "ninja" you got through the first day's mission.

    If someone has beta keys, bug them for access. It really is a great game and worth trying!

    Bought on Friday night.. 19.2 hours according to Steam, I loved the first but didn't really play it much.. looks like that's changed!
    I like the fact you now get set classes.. we roll with an Enforcer (me) , a Technician and a Mastermind.. figured the ECM Jammers weren't worth it as they don't seem to work in Beta (No @Rawns , Rocket's way isn't how you're SUPPOSED to use them, just the beta way )

    Pretty cool how the levels change from play to play too, doing the Rats mission and the first time we walked through grabbed the info and out, no problems.. second time we were double crossed and ended up with sentry guns on the stair case.

    Nearly Max level now, probably get there tonight

    EDIT: Just watched a vid and it seems the Jammers do work to stop phone calls etc.. not sure on Cameras still. Need to have a word with my resident Ghost and figure out what he was doing wrong.

    Interesting, did not know they don't work in the beta. How are you meant to use them?

    Max level? Bet you'll love it when the stats are reset on go-live day.

    Is this one of those games you need a close circle of people to play with or randoms will do? Think I'm going to miss out as I barely get to play these days and by the time i get round to it no one else will play it!

    Well they work in a radius, so on the jewelry store for example, you slap one on the outside wall at the front and one at the back of the main room in order to get full cell coverage for civ phones... in theory anyway. Not sure how they react with cameras, I've been seen by the buggers with ECMs up before.

    As soon as I hit 25 (max for beta) I'm rolling back anyway to start again.. or maybe I'll try to buy all those weapons.. they're damn expensive.

    @TechMonkey It helps if you have friends who play for communications sake and it will obviously be more fun / laid back, but randoms will get you through. I tend to go with a team of 3 and let an AI control the 4th character, he just acts as a medic.

    @GTX 24.99 for the pre-order, 29.99 for the Career Criminal edition, which comes with a Beta key so you can start playing now, and an extra key to give away.

    I missed this thread!

    I have beta too (in fact, still got a key to give away) and having a right laugh. Proper group together doing a perfect heist on overkill is a great buzz.

    Currently running Technician with MP5 as secondary and about to start testing the 7.62mm AK in the field. Also sensor mines are great for setting up a perimeter and meeting ambushes with ambushes.

    It's cracking ain't it. Me and mates always try and stealth it but usually there is three of us. On occasions, a random drops in and just charges in or gets spotted. We were so close to doing the bank with stealth once but the random got impatient so just ran in and killed the civvies. Seriously annoying! If you can get on a 4 man team that are tight and use voice comms, like you say it's awesome! And if it goes belly up, you know you all tried hard and battle your way through.

    I've been a bit overkill on it over the past few weeks so moved to Planetside 2 for a break. I'll be all over it next week. Conveniently, tomorrow is my last day in work for three weeks!

    As always, if you fancy a game or need one/two/three more, me and my roughneck bunch of misfit mates are always happy to oblige.

    Feel free to chuck me an invite! The game is possible with randoms but mostly on lower difficulties which are far too low payout to do anything but use them as practice heists.

    You say mates, but none of us actually like you. You're just bulldozer bait, you know that right?

    No heals for you next time you've been battered by the Feds.

    And good luck connecting onto my TS server later.

    I find it just as much fun now to join random games already in action, do the business while they are fannying around shooting people, get a nice payout, then disappear. Rogue operative for hire.

    Although I did get kicked from a game (after payout) because they had all bags from nightclub, then sat in the club fighting, even though i was stood by the van clearing a path. Got kicked for "not sticking with the team".

    That's why I get the extra van.. throw the bags out the window, then you don't get slowed sprinting across the street.
