I have a few rules in my home. But one of them is simple and non-negotiable: Don’t eat food while using my controllers. You monsters out there eating and playing games sicken me. Stop it.

The world needed another hero shooter about as much as I needed another hole in my head.

I hate how often this is used as an insult against games, but seriously, this looks like a PS3 game. What happened? This is a billion-dollar mega-franchise. It feels odd to release what looks like a budget title.
