The more I see from this game my excitement level goes up.

I'm really liking the improvements so far with payday 2. I'm digging the new rpg elements that's been added, and the more diverse customization options. Looting and upgrading my character with new outfits,weapons, and equipment will definitely keep me busy. Only thing I hope now is that there's a more broader range of levels. Playing co-op in this game will be a good time indeed. Only a few more weeks and its game time, and for 30 bucks you can't go wrong.

So pumped for this. Exactly the sort of changes I wanted to see.

I just wish Overkill would 100% completely ripoff Kane and Lynch's fragile alliance multiplayer gamemode and put it into Payday 2. The concept of heist teammates being able to betray each other would add a lot of exciting moments... maybe it could be implemented as an optional mode or something, I don't know.

Besides that though, it is looking quite nice... I just wish there was more to it than "co-op with 4 friends like all other co-op games that allow 4 friends."

People mention that to them on there steam forums. Its something there thinking about, but they seem content on having it the way it is..

The gameplay demo really seemed great. Only weird thing was the intimidated guard not setting off the other one staring at him. Still seems like a really good compromise between stealth and action.

I'm going to try and play some of the missions stealthy on co-op.

Though it would seem to be difficult without a good team. From my experiences with the original, your going to have controlling, ignorant, bitchy, or don't give a fuck type players. There are players that like to work as a team,even without mics. So hopefully I can run across more of those types of players, and have a good time.

Already pre ordered. Second most hyped game for me behind GTA V.

It seem like the levels is going to have different stages which is nice. Thinking about it I might go ahead and cop the collectors edition. I'm just to excited for this game..

I'm really thinking about picking this up with a headset for PS3. Looks pretty good and it has I believe 30 different heists which sounds like quite a bit of content for a $40 game.

Not bad. I had interest in the first game but I'm not a fan of PC gaming. Glad to see they expanded their market this time around. Definitely will try this out.

Wow! I didn't know it had 30 different heist. That beats the original's 8 levels by miles..

#12 Posted by FourWude (2261 posts) -

It has 30 unique heists, i.e. Missions.

It has 17 unique levels, i.e. stages.

There are also 6 Escape Levels, where you're solely escaping from the fuzz.

Now that sound aswome, thanks for letting me know. I'm probably going to end up playing this game for months, like I did the original. I wonder if they're going to add in some extra DLC that would be cool too.

Here another gameplay vid with a dev talking. if anyone is interested to see...

I had fun with the first game it was rough around the edges but the idea to have a team based heist was pretty cool and something new other than wave or hoard based game play.

For me it was a nice break from military generic shooters, and it was alot of fun working with other people completing heists. I really enjoyed maxing out my character's classes. Playing the game on overkill 145 drove me fucking nuts, but I manage to beat all the levels and get the gold mask.

I hope in the new payday that when you beat a harder difficulty. That you will get more unique rewards, instead of just upgrading your character faster. It will give more players a reason to try out the harder settings.

Thinking about it I wonder what new enemy types well see, in the last game if I recall we saw....

Cloakers- Splinter cell looking dudes that can instantly arrest you (Most annoying enemy too)

Shields- Guys with riot shields that can only be hurt from behind (Can be a pain when in close corridors)

Bulldozer- Big ass heavily armed cop that likes to rush you ( Run out of ammo at the wrong time,and its over)

Taser- a cop that likes to paralyze you with its electric power ( 2nd most gayest annoying enemy in the game)

Sniper- Now you see me now your dead ( Don't go near an objective without taking out the snipers, or else)

I hope for payday 2 they add in new special cops. It would be interesting to see what there abilities are, hopefully they'll reveal them soon.

(The first payday yeah)

As for Payday 2 I can't say yet, but from the gameplay vids and people's experiences. It seems to be a much bigger improvement over the first, and stealth seems to be implemented better this time around.

The character names are just the names of the characters from Heat. Classy.
