    Of course RockPaperSocialJustice likes the messy and gimmicky time-stop aspect, instead of superior Action Points mechanics.

    The notion of a weapons-grade laser being reflected outside of a laboratory environment is rather absurd, but then again, so is the notion of it being visible outside the vector of its polarization without a cloud of contaminants or ionization of the atmosphere.

    Looks like cool stuff. I might take the plunge on it at some point, as there's a serious dearth of proper mech games out there. MegaMek remains the best, of course; that or classic BattleTech in Tabletop Simulator.

    The core combat is very cool, its just lacking in content right now. Not a lot of mission or upgrade variety, no pilot skills, etc.

    It's been in development for closing in on four years, so if that's the case they've got a lot of work still to do.

    So, typical Epic Store treatment - they got their money, sales are low since most people don't care or even know about it, and there's just no incentive to work on it much. Real shame, it seemed promising.

    I guess they didn't add the RPG in this patch either, huh.

    Funny how it goes.

    these dopamine drip mechanics must come to an end, we must reject this shallow itemization.

    Itemization is one step away from grinding and loot boxes. The game keeps getting more and more disappointing.

    It went to shit so fast. From esthetics to mechanics. Looks like same thing that happens to many indies, they became bitchboys of Reddit through steam reviews. Main problem with that: shizos make terrible co-designers
