    It doesn’t have VR.

    0/10 not trendy enough.

  • Bazzy

    Yup, that is what i thought. Its a checklist, even the overblown graphics effects that make the trailer look like it will make your eyes bleed are there. They did great on checking the boxes.

    A mishmash of what’s popular nowadays it seems. Even one of the characters looks like a Big Daddy.

  • Bazzy

    Oh his / their first game sits at mixed (44 reviews) on steam, so.. yeah this will most likely be trash.
