Whilst originally 3.6 felt pretty light, as it turns out, the new law system brings some cool new gameplay in the form of an improved hacking mechanic requiring crypto keys; different laws within different regions and selling illegal goods at various new locations within Stanton, such as the new junkyards.
Being able to rent and buy vehicles allows for reasons to make credits (I'm looking at trade and transportation gameplay this patch), and with components persisting even when a vehicle is destroyed, upgrading them now make sense. You can, so I've been told, successfully log out in a bed to save your location now, too.
VOIP now includes local chat turned on by default, allowing us to talk and listen to anyone on the server nearby (I can't wait to tell someone to lower their weapon or I'll shoot); we can hail other ships and are automatically assigned a COMM channel for entering a vehicle, allowing us to chat to everyone onboard.
One of my favourite new features is the improved face tracking, which now can be used with a hold key bind. As well as a new control layout/setup that I've invested time into, flight will feel fantastic this time.
Thank you Gray, who understands my lack of games to play even tho I call myself a gamer and went on to let me know the gift is thanks for Brigade efforts, in which Gray recognises my passion and dedication. Well, you are very welcome and I hope I can continue to do the same for many members to come. I'm very much looking forward to entering Enderal, tomorrow morning!
Very cool thing to do, Gray. 07

Chief.Neil · Going to play on Sunday, @Graymound . Will start earlier too; 17:00. Actually get a chance to have a good play. 22nd Jun
Chief.Neil · Well, this morning I came downstairs to find my house infested with ants. I went to get some advice online and that's when my PC decided not to power on. Spent an hour fault finding instead of having some fun with Enderal. I really can't keep this up... Still, luckily found the fault. No cost! 30th Jun
B.Graymound · Have you tried to look for the hidden camera then? 1st Jul
Chief.Neil · I'm starting Enderal with a new char. Going sword and board. Chop and block. May have to get some snacks on the go to keep my 'The Hound' character healthy, whilst I battle those dang bears and wolves. 3rd Jul
B.Graymound · might not make it for stream, got a little family thing sunday evening. 5th Jul
Chief.Neil · Hmm, maybe something for after Sniper. Maybe. 26th Jun
Chief.Neil · Speaking of which, I'm free Friday for some Sniper Elite. Play a few missions? Let me know if you'd like to do Brigade practice within the game too at some point. You'll see me play a bit differently if I lead a practice. 27th Jun
B.Graymound · cant really say now, I should be free but I never know how my motivation is after morning shift, also it is really hot here which makes me not want to do anything that will heat up the room more (1080ti is a radiator on its own). 27th Jun
Chief.Neil · Hot here too- time in the garden! \o/ Give me a nudge if you see me on and want to party. 27th Jun
The dates are in for the CCC event above (click the pic):
6th July, 20:00
If you'd like to participate, please let me know. I'll be joining them all, if time permits. Take note that the events will go forward if 3.6 allows it, so if the bug-monster general (who I've named El Loco) arrives with their armies, I'll keep you posted.
On offer ATM. Co-op. One of the other games I was talking about was 'A Way Out' - a prison break co-op game, looks very story driven in terms of interactivity. Still searching for the FPS co-op game; I'll make a comment if I find it.

B.Graymound · Yeah uhm...don't know how to say this but Dying Light is banned in Germany (Dying Light2 seems to be fine though...) 18th Jun
Chief.Neil · Oh, poor Germans. Can't find that game I was on about. Frustrating! Something like R6 Vegas 2 would be great. 18th Jun
For those of you looking at entering 3.6, here's probably all you need to know about the state of the game now and for what happens in a few weeks. That's right, just 2-3 weeks before the next goodies. Not massive amounts for 3.6 but extras nonetheless, including the anticipated hover mode (VTOL) and HUD/MFD updates (to the gladius only currently). VOIP back in the game is also pretty awesome for chat to other random players; "drop your weapon or I'll shoot!"
Likely live this week, the start of ship customisations. Persistent in the alpha. Everything can be obtained in game, or you can purchase a vessel and extras with RL money. Not pay-to-win but if you happen to be well off these kinds of things can place you well ahead of the curve vs someone who isn't, SC is heavily a paper, rock, scissors and numbers game tho so I don't see it being important in any way. Pretty cool.
OFFICIAL! This Sunday 26th May at 18:00utc I'll be playing through the newly released (this Tues) game, Observation.
It is a sci-fi thriller uncovering what happened to Dr. Emma Fisher, and the crew of her mission, through the lens of the station’s artificial intelligence S.A.M. Players assume the role of S.A.M. by operating the station’s control systems, cameras, and tools to assist Emma.
Stop by Brigade's twitch channel every Sun at 18:00 to join in and help win the story.
More Star Citizen to commence as 3.6 draws closer.
Chief.Neil · Playing through the game: Observation, turned out to be an adventure. With viewer Graymound helping to solve puzzles that little bit quicker as to not piss off Emma, our story protagonist (she doesn't like to be kept waiting). Yeah, kinda cool experiment for the channel. More next Sunday. 3rd Jun
