Connecting was a lot more stable tonight and didn't have any issues with receiving rewards so hopefully the issues are getting resolved.

This game is brilliant fun, best £30 I've spent in ages.

Push Square appear to hold a similar opinion to yourself, sawyer!

Push Square wrote:Helldivers 2 is a riotous affair, offering up best-in-class gunplay, a truly epic and often cinematic experience, mixed in with one of the best co-op gameplay romps currently available. Its present matchmaking issues hold it back from true glory, but when it works it really works, forcing you to feel a sense of patriotism for Super Earth as the score swells and bullets fly. Helldivers 2 is a hell of a lot of fun, and is the best laugh you and your mates will have on PS5. [9]

Can confirm this is hella fun. It’s hard. But calling in airstrikes and massive explosions is beyond incredible.

Do you need PS+ if you're playing this on PS5?

Yeah you do.

Might have to see how it performs on Steam Deck in that case.

The matchmaking has improved last couple of days. Although I have been booted a couple of times and I think steam went down last night.

There is nothing quite like the calling an air strike and seeing the size of the explosions. They are massive and so ott that it makes me smile every time. It’s got some rough edges, but it has fun and smiles at its very core.

I can see it getting a bit grindy. But beyond the initial hammer the gooseberry fool out of it, dropping in from time to time for a chuckle and blast will always be there.


Incredible fun. Suicide squad what?

Really like how different the robots are from bugs.



But dear me those poor scientists you're "rescuing

This appears to be a bigger hit than most folk had anticipated; apparently it hit well over 200k concurrent users on Steam overnight.

The developer, Arrowhead Studios, is looking to take on additional development staff although I wonder if the game will get new content quickly enough to support its popularity?

It’s a bit grindy. But there is massive scope for further updates.

I think there are at least 2 more factions coming, top and bottom on the galactic map. The bugs and robots are different. An alien race, maybe some rebels would be good? Vehicles are planned apparently.

It’s so damn fun. That whole concept of 30seconds of fun, over and over is captured here incredibly well. Absolute blast.

The escort missions yesterday were strawberry floating brutal. Trying to do them as a duo was just impossible. Endless dropships with big chainsaw strawberry floaters.

Well, I've ordered this, only £30, so not bad at all, who's up for some games?

Do you have discord set up? I’m on PC but we can play and chat cross platform with that.

You can also use the in-game chat but the other guys I play with on PC won’t be bothered with that (and rightly so).

You can join Fade, Chalky and I today at 10 and Sundays at 9.
I'm just level 5 and only have the base game so no xp boosts here so you shouldn't be underleveled.

This game absolutely requires voice chat to avoid friendly fire.

We've been a trio for many years now so no can do, sorry.

Thanks Pete, but I go to bed at 9.30 these days; the joys of having 2 young children. 7.30 till 9.30 is my window at the moment, not sure if that suites any of your days in the week?
