Well, here it is. The replacement for Stimhack. It's a bit less swingy, (+4 instead of +9) but it's also neutral now, and doesn't cause brain damage.
I think we're going to see a lot of this card.
Because any time you know a run is going to cost you at least 5, this card is basically a Sure Gamble, that doesn't cost a click to play. And people like Sure Gamble. They like it a lot. Many people would add 3 more sure gambles to their decks if they could, and this card basically lets you.
It has most of Stimhack's advantages, too. You can throw off corp math, when they're trying to figure out if you can afford to get in. You can use the credits to pay for things during the run, like Self-modifying Code or Simulchip. You can use the credits to help you trash expensive assets. You can pay for things like Tollbooth or Whitespace. Or you can just crank up your breakers with more money than they expected you to have, and smash your way in.
It's good stuff. I tried out a deck with x2 Overclocked, and quickly added a third. I was basically never sad to draw it. If you haven't yet, give it a shot!
You can use Overclock for Tollbooth but not Whitespace, right? Tollbooth: "pay 3". Whitespace: "lose 3". You can spend the Overclock credits but not lose them.— ClosDeLaRoche
