This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Any fans of Deep Rock Galactic? AKA, the Squat FPS?

As a 40k squat fan, I'm drawn to anything with a tagline of "Danger. Darkness. Dwarves" with space midgets firing gatling guns.

Does it live up to the hype?

It's fantastic, really.
And thoroughly unique.

One of the very few games I just keep installed on my PC as I come back to it somewhat regularly when I feel like playing a round or two.

It's also one of very few games where you can actually play with random people online and won't have a terrible experience - I think this is mostly due to the facts that a) the game so strongly encourages you to stick somewhat close while also allowing everyone going their own paths (this does make sense once you play the game) and b) the game does give very useful and funny tools for communication (with voice chat being entirely optional, I never use it).
But you can also totally play it alone (you'll get a useful flying NPC robot).
 
Also, it made this possible:

Played a ton of this with my gaming group over the summer, but it has died off since then.  Great fun.
