    No, just allows you to examine skins.

    Yeah I dropped into Skull Town which was right near the dropship starting position and hotzone and there was no one there, it was uncanny considering how busy it normally is. EDIT: Got a second Champion! This time with Pathfinder, everything just went so well for us, did a proper grapple into a headshot like in the gifs

    Gaming tropes that need to go away

    My favourite part of that game is where you get to drive around while someone is telling you about the cars and their history, as someone who isn't a mega car nut it's great to actually get an introduction like that and baffling that games just assume you know your Impreza from a Subaru, it's like the bits of Top Gear that aren't filled with miserableness, celebrities or cringey overdone humour.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Games in the same franchise losing features and content with each new edition seems to only be an EA thing though, Ubisoft staff more people and they can seem to make things bigger as they get better looking (maybe too big, although that's a separate issue).

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Their big drive to lower costs is why everything feels increasingly cheap and cut down, Battlefield has fewer maps and modes every year, etc. Anthem itself seems like it's no exception, there's apparently three armour sets per class and very few cosmetic weapon variations in a loot game, a grand total of 7 story missions, and 2 of those are re-used for the endgame content (I have an inkling the 3rd one was originally in the campaign where that tombs grind list is inserted, before they realised having no unique endgame content would look bad). The whole game seems to be slightly bigger than a Vicarious Visions outsourced D2 expansion.

    EA in particular seem pretty bad for shoving stuff out early without features even previous iterations of the same franchise had, sticking those in the roadmap, and then inevitably cancelling most of the roadmap when the game underperforms because everyone knows it's essentially Early Access and stays away. You think at some point they'd look at these repeated failures, and the success of finished game Apex Legends and put 2 and 2 together.

    What series/genre should be 'battle royaled' next ?

    It started with Minecraft Hunger Games/Arma III BR in about 2014, only really blown up recently.

    A racing game would be pretty fun, would be like those Trackmania vids, but with actual players rather than just ghosts.

    Had some fantastic games last night, didn't win any of them, but feel I'm finally adjusting to the combat system, regularly getting like three to five kills a round, whereas before I'd often die at the first enemy we encountered. Also I finally unlocked Mirage and he's great fun.

    The UK has really good form for cheap and depressing events set up by absolute chancers designed to wring money from parents, see also, Christmas villages.
