This is a nice bit of publicity for the game and for Jeff and Gyles, but - with no disrespect intended to NIN fans - every single track of the original soundtrack is a much better accompaniment to these visuals. The added visual distortion/feedback slathered on by the director is also inferior to the visuals outputted 'naturally' in-game. Still, great stuff! :)

Michel Ancel doesn't think BG&E 2 is a Switch exclusive, and he would know

It the trailer is anything to go by, which featured anthropomorphised animals (gangstas, hustlas and hos) swearing pointlessly and being massively obnoxious and unlikeable, it would be a very strange home indeed as a Switch exclusive.

@lexlaureijssen1: Maybe it's uncommon, but it's bad and getting worse with me (voiceovers, in-game npc speech and audiologs, Bioshock only, haven't tried others). I spent a lot of time tweaking audio balance trying to get it to something I liked, so maybe that broke it! :)

Overwatch patch fixes Zarya, Winston and Mercy bugs

Golgo

2 years ago

IMO the worst issue with competitive play is the inclusion of Control mode. First to 3 therefore up to 5 bouts i.e. 25/30 minutes of utterly brainless and skill-less mayhem and spam on a few square yards of map. It really exposes the very worst aspects of the game. Even coming back to win from a 2-nil deficit is a boring grind. Why they don't change Control mode to have 2 or indeed all 3 nodes open at once I don't know, but I wouldn't be aggrieved to see Control patched out of competitive play altogether.

Golden Overwatch weapons to be a reward for Competitive Play

Golgo

2 years ago

Changes to make Assault last longer and be more to-and-fro are very welcome. I'd like something to be done with Control too. The maps are great and full of sneaky routes, but opening only one control point at a time just leads to a messy scrum on that one point. Why not open all three at once and let the play flow between them?

I'd like a control tweak for Lucio (console edition). It's very hard to wall run (hold X) and aim/shoot at the same time (right stick), which judging by his trophies you are encouraged to master. Will have a look in control customization to see if anything can be done, but if X/wall-run could be toggled on and off that might solve it. Awesome game. :)

This represents astonishingly bad value at £30, at a price that already looked ridiculous when it was revealed back in the early summer. I wonder what the £40 season pass on Star Wars will deliver. 25% increase on a big franchise season pass. The sooner this industry - in its current state - crashes, the better.
