    Steam post with all the deets

    Also the game's coming to Playstations and XBoxes on May 21.

    Oh and it's currently on a -55% Steam sale.

    Did I forget anything?

    Anyway, I'm not in the mood for a SSR replay just yet, but I'd be curious to hear from TTLGers who've given it a spin. What do you think of the new patch? Did it change things significantly?

    I stopped playing when I got frustrated because the 'Don't forget to salt the fries' achievement didn't trigger after I finished the game in the highest difficulty settings. I'll give it another go one of these days.

    I've been wandering through it again. The biggest difference seems to be the improved enemy AI. They're no longer walking right at you and shooting, but now seem to take cover. In one instance I was even flanked on either side by two enemies after I took cover, so that's a big improvement.

    That said, I'm annoyed that your movement is still hampered for a few seconds every time you pick up an email log or use an energy station.
