Yes, at first I couldn't believe my eyes, how can anyone, let alone these guys design something so stupid and disjointed, no sense at all. Then it occured to me, that the base is just old combat with copied elements tacked on, but with perspective that ruins it. Amateurish mistake, and comes off as them just trying to copy actual trends with no confidence.

It's not only the combat, seems they did that also with tone, narrative, pacing, and general systems. Not sure how people who had such a laser focused thing before, went Fortnite for this one.

I'm going to keep playing, making sure until the end, just the theme alone with such production values would keep me on it. Have some faith in these people too, though wouldn't be surprised if it turned out there was a lot of personel change there. I'm also actually interested in what their take on fatherhood is, already used that on kids heh, see Kratos screams too. My style is actually quite similar tbh, harsh though much softer where necessary.

One thing is clear though, even if it turns out to be good here or there, it has nothing on old GoWs, that is actually obvious for me from the first 10 seconds.

Garth Merenghi quotes
Most of you will probably know me already from my extensive canon of chillers including "Afterbirth" in which a mutated placenta attacks Bristol.

Everyone has a special talent. Mine is being able to write, produce direct, act, paint... Other people are good plumbers, that's their gift.

There are rebels and there are innovators. I'm a rebel. I play a rebel brain expert who's in rebelliance against conventional logic, who's in rebelliance against the world order. It's about rebelliance. And if that's not being an innovator, I don't know what is.

In times of conflict, when you're up against an agressor, be he human, be he inhuman, whoe'er he be, often he is both.

Greetings traveller. Who am I? Perhaps you have met me twixt sleep and and wake - in the penumbra of uncertainity you call unconsiousness... you know, my books are essentialy about "what ifs". In "Black Fang" I asked - what if a rat could drive a bus? And what if it and its rat brethren took over and ate Parliment?

A lot of people say "Garth Merenghi? Doesn't he write that horror crap?" Well, you're an idiot, because my books always say something, even if it's simple like "Don't geneticaly engineer crabs to be as big as man". There's always a message or a theme.
