I think I started my first go at GoW on the second highest difficulty. And the early game is a fucking farce, it just does not play well if you're not used to solid combat systems. You get two shot by almost everything, even the basic Dragur take a hell of a beating, and so go...

The staggered release honestly just makes me think it's a server load test to avoid the shitshow that was GTA: O when that launched to everybody at the same time. But for some reason "load test" is a banned phrase in the AAA market, so instead it's a "beta". "Planned from the...
