Woah, what’s that? The new slideshow disclaimer comment I’ve now turned into habit!

Remember that, if you make your browser window as narrow as possible, that’ll basically turn it into an article. Not ideal, of course, but definitely a better user experience than click-click-click-clicking through a bunch of individual Read more

Before these comments fill up with posts about the evils of slideshows, remember that, if you make your browser window as narrow as possible, that’ll basically turn it into an article! Not ideal, of course, but definitely a better user experience than click-click-click-clicking through a bunch of individual slides.

Wow, that really sucks! I know the patch notes said it’d receive a change, but I didn’t realize it’d be so drastic, nor so negative. If anything, you’d think Housemarque would make it heal you fully so you’d save time having to spam it... Major bummer.

Terrific advice. Astute analysis. Plus killer ideas (custom-build runs is genius). A Friday star for you!

I would have turned it down to easy too, to be honest... if there was an easy mode! It’s a one-size-destroys-all in terms of difficulty settings, I’m afraid.

Biiiig difference between making use of haptics in the most literal sense (get hit, take damage, controller rumbles) and making use of them in creative, surprising ways (Astro’s Playroom as peerless example).
