Yes, I am going to be completely insufferable when his update comes out.
The latest patch for action MOBA Smite dropped today, adding achievements, a brand new god, a revamped store interface and all sorts of item and god balance tweaks. Great! I’ll just watch this menu animation for the two dozenth time then.
