PAYDAY 2 Death Wish Update


Here is the trailer for the free update for the PC version of PAYDAY 2, which adds the Death Wish difficulty option to heists. Before this, heist contracts had normal, hard, very hard, and overkill difficulties. With death wish, Bulldozers have more armor, and are equipped with LMGs rather than shotguns. No word on if or when this update may hit console versions... and if it will be free.

Overkill is hard enough, but apparently you can't host a death wish heist until level 80. Once you get in the 50s it starts becoming a grind to level up. I would spam overkill quick stealth hiests and ones where I could collect the loot and bunker down hoping I picked the right spot out of 2-4 where the getaway van shows up. Now if you do too many of the same heist contract in close proximity you will get less xp and eventually none until you start taking up different and possibly less desirable contracts.

Here is the Trailer to PAYDAY2's Big Bank Heist DLC. At E3 it was announced that Overkill has committed to 20 more months of development for PAYDAY2 which will continue to feature paid DLC and free updates. Since the franchise debuted it has quickly become the second largest user community on Steam.


The PAYDAY series is handled pretty differently from other games. The games are $30, and the DLC goes for dirt cheap ($2-5) on steam sales not too long after they come out. Also, if anyone you know has the DLC, you can play the DLC with them without buying it... not only does that include maps but also special equipment drops or anything else that can be shared among players in a heist. Since PAYDAY2 has come out the game has changed a lot, and a lot of free stuff has been added. One time they made changes to where it was almost impossible to stealth missions anymore... after the fans cried out, they later added new skill sets and other aspects that made stealth possible again, while making the gameplay more rich at the same time... all for free. I'll buy any PAYDAY game that comes out in the future because the dev's really care about the product and I've always got my money's worth out of the game.

It depends on its structure. This is the first heist you can pre-plan. normally you can just buy assets and they show up in random places. For this you can buy assets and actually place them strategically. The devs said if the community likes it, it will be put on all the heists.


Some heists can be completely done in stealth, and are easier that way... getting caught could make these types of heists insanely difficult as the cops can shut off power and/or disrupt/jam/break your equipment slowing your progress. Completely all phases of these heists without being seen will give you a significantly larger amount of XP and pay. Other heists can partially be done in stealth and then a predetermined event will alert the cops and you will have to go loud to finish things up. And then there are grinder heists which are loud all the way through.


I'm thinking Big Bank is partial stealth because you have to drop a large object from a crane and that will def set off alarms. XD


Here is a good preview of the heist.

      Last Spring was an anime season of epicness. This season is of charm and adorableness. Meiji Tokyo Renka, My Roommate is a Cat, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and ENDRO have all captured my heart and they're not even my favorites this season. I'll def have my work cut out for me doing a full review at the end.

      I've been sick as hell for the last 5 days now. Damn sinus infection has wrecked me. At least I got some time in on God of War. Damn that game is amazing.

      I finally passed the anime in the AoT manga. This next half of season 3 is probably going to end before they explain everything, where the titans came from, the world outside the walls, and how everything happened. It's interesting, but I feel like it makes the series lose a major component which was the mystery of why anything was happening. The anime is about to get as intense as season 1 was, but after that I can see people getting bored with the next season unless the really fly through this section of explanations. I don't think they will though because the anime has been the manga verbatim.

      Totally hyped for the new expansion for FFXIV, Shadowbringers, after this mornings announcements at the Fan Fest in Paris. We're getting a 24-man raid devoted to Nier called YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse and Yoko Taro is overseeing its creation, fucking sweet. It's supposed to further the Nier story as well (and if the concept art is to be believed it's sometime after the Automata storyline).
      Say what you will about FFXIV but god damn do we get some awesome shit due to Square-Enix properties and their connections. I just fucking hope I can finally get my 2B glamour I've been wanting for my character. This just mean I need to quit being lazy and beat Automata before October (when this should probably launch since the expansion comes out in July).

      I'll pass on a review of the Fall simuldub lineup. Mostly because everything I like is bleeding into the new season minus SSSS.Gridman, ZOMBIE LAND SAGA, and Goblin Slayer. There rest was underwhelming, absolute trash, or not dubbed. As someone that enjoys a fanservice fest now and then, I don't get the appeal of SENRAN KAGURA, After 3 eps, I was like "holy shit this is so bad". I guess because it tries to be so serious. Anyways, I watched the first ep of Magical Girl Spec Ops, and it was pretty awesome. I think this is closer to what I was expecting from Raising Project. Seeing a magical girl slice up a bunch of people with a karambit was pretty awesome. Boogiepop and Others is interesting so far so I'll stick with it. Still waiting for Mob Psycho 100 season 2 to start the dub, and I guess I'll ride the hype train for The Rising of the Shield Hero when it starts.
