    Someone who thinks people want their autographs. They think it is because those are fans who would treasure them, or shysters out to make a buck selling them. Reality is that they make good dartboard material.

    Unless I personally knew someone involved with development I cannot imagine a more cringe event to attend than a PC game launch. At least at a console launch you have the chance for girls (or "girls") in cosplay.

    No it's still cringe, so if you personally knew someone involved it's your duty to drag them to drink a local dive instead to preserve their dignity.

    Its one of those things with mandatory attendance, the question is more why even bother? "Launch parties" on entertainment is more about establishing connections to get people (as they are more or less freelancers) involved in their other projects as in gaming ... its useless ego stroking from nobodies that want to emulate their big brothers without understanding why those things exist.

    On a related topic, Gungriffon Blaze could totally be the name of a metal band.

    How did they manage to find a 90's instructional video radical dude to make the walkthrough narration? Do they have a ready-to-deploy 90's rapper in the same room too?


    Anyway, at least that AC20 is firing fully automatic and the UAC has rotating barrels, which is the aesthetically pleasing way (this is because in an earlier trailer a King Crab was firing single shot, and I think that's how it is in MWO too).

    AFAIK AC20 could be fully automatic OR single shot, since every "Auto Cannon n" is only an abstraction for a wide variety of weapons.
    Also, if UAC is a rotationg barrel gun, how is it different from rotary AC?

    Well there's basically no consistency at all when it comes to autocannons in the material, you can have 203mm full automatics and ones that are like modern 120mm tank guns both classified as the same fucking thing (AC20), since like you said it's basically just an abstraction that's never been given any real definition (and is only made MORE confusing by UAC and RAC, and RAC is THE headscratcher). Hence why I said full auto is the aesthetically pleasing way to handle the autocannons.
