As someone with dyspraxia (a condition where it's sometimes difficult to concentrate on multiple tasks, among other things), I was initially worried about Marauders showing up often While the initial encounter was definitely a pain, I actually found them easier to deal with later in the game. You get a lot more space to move around, so it's easier to both escape them and take care of other enemies.

In my opinion, the worst encounter is the first; just an unfortunate side-effect of having it in a confined space to teach you how the enemy works.

Yeah that was super frustrating for me! I'm dealing with the rest of them as they appear but I'm definitely glad I can keep it on Hurt Me Plenty without guilt for now - can't imagine making them actually any harder.

I have boughten it but haven't started it yet! looks like I rolled back my save to a bit before the ending so I'd need to go down and fight the pit monster and some other stuff again. Might try to crank out that stuff this weekend and get back into the expansion.

That Fowlplay screenshot is killer. I wish I liked Hitman more - I think one of the issues I have with the game is that my fiancee usually likes watching me play and a lot of Hitman relies on waiting for NPCs to complete their routes - I get a little flustered at having to sit in a spot for a minute or two at a time. Should give it another whirl at some point though!

I have never installed Artifact since the original word of mouth was so bad. But it sounds like they're trying to completely redo it, which is nice?

“Artifact was an interesting failure in its first go-round." Newell tells Edge, “We were surprised. We thought that it was a really strong product.”

“We ran an experiment, we got a negative result, and now we need to see if we’ve learned anything from that, so let’s try again,” he says. “And that’s what [the Artifact team] have been doing and that’s what they’re getting ready to release. Based on the reaction to it, what was wrong with the product? How did we get there? Let’s fix those things and take another run at it.”

Edge reports that, internally, the follow-up to Artifact is being referred to as Artifact 2, though it's unclear if this will be a full blown sequel, a No Man's Sky-style comeback, or something else entirely, but Newell stresses that Valve has "to do a larger reboot in order to justify its existence to customers and to markets."

Thanks for the blog! My audio has been real bad since all this started but my roommate is a DJ / tape op dude so maybe I'll get him to come up and take a look at some of this stuff.

I am only a couple hours in but it's hard not to feel a little disappointed. I get the emphasis on weapon switching and chainsawing but it's just not super fun to me. Also don't feel like the traversal really adds much to the formula. It's early days yet, though, and I hope it comes around on me.

@quantris: The YT player is the default but it should save your preference if you switch it to the site player. It's possible that a cache reset on the site might flip it back for you, though. Let me know the next time it happens and I can check.

@quantris: Weird! If you can grab a screenshot the next time you see this happening? I can try to get it looked at.
