“It was initially a very small, very passion-driven studio, where, you know, everyone knows everyone,” one person told me. “Now the whole company is around 400 people strong, or something, and it’s not really structured to deal with that.” … [Read more...] about Paradox Interactive’s QA staff allege poor treatment, low pay, and mismanaged layoffs
E.O.D. Effect: Take reduced damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire. When picking up frag grenades, reset the fuse. Perk Slot: 1 Strength: High With the prevalence of C4 and other explosives in Warzone, E.O.D. is pretty much a must-have Perk. We don’t really care that much about being able to reset the fuse on Frag Grenades (let’s face it, that opportunity really doesn’t come up often), but the reduction in damage of non-killstreak explosives is huge. It gives you a fighting chance even after being hit hard by a C4 or RPG. You may not know, in fact, that E.O.D. will clamp the damage you take under certain circumstances so that even if you’re wearing just a tiny portion of armor, you won’t take any health damage from an explosion (unless it’s a direct hit). Powerful stuff. … [Read more...] about Best Warzone Perks for Season 5: every Perk ranked and explained

I feel like I'm trapped in horny jail. … [Read more...] about Gamedec aims to be cyberpunk Disco Elysium
But others find it irresistible too, and hence we have the Groundhog Day scenario that the house on Loot Lake is caught within. I parachute in, and as I near the ground, I see someone else has had the same idea. This almost always happens. And what almost always happens next is a sort of polite agreement that takes place wordlessly in mid-air. The person closest to the house gets to pick the landing spot, and common sense dictates there are really only two spots to consider here anyway. So somebody gets the house and somebody else gets the roof and the snug attic below, which can be relied upon to contain a treasure chest. Digging down from the attic is dangerous - even dropping down into the garden has its hazards. Digging up into the attic is generally suicide. Voila! The person who gets the house has to live in proximity with the person who gets the attic, as virtual architecture combines with a few basic game mechanics to conjure the reliable psychodrama of a good ghost story. And … [Read more...] about Fortnite’s on its way to being the world’s biggest game, and here’s what makes it special
