Gordon Freeman. He's a theoretical physicist who also happens to be great with every type of firearm. He will never tell us how he got there.

TELL US YOUR SECRETS, GORDON. HOW DO YOU JUMP SO WELL!? WHY DO YOU NEVER SCREAM WHEN YOU'RE IN PAIN!?

I really wish the PC had better legacy support. I don't want to have to make a weird XP machine to play GTR in 2019. And then trick it into thinking my graphics card is circa 2005.

Konami's going weird. Like, after being moaned at for not preserving their classics, it appears that's THE THING they're building their (gaming-ish) business on.

That was pretty packed and there's plenty to look forward to between now and November. Bit of a shame how Metroid Prime and Bayonetta are AWOL for another year, mind.

Yeah, the stewarding system is odd, like a guest judge in a reality TV show. I do wonder what former drivers would follow the circus around for 21 weekends, though. Also, these decisions are considered using all available technology. So there's telemetry as well as slow motion footage. I can see the decision being reversed but the dangerous precedent was already set when Verstappen was penalised for a similar incident. If they're showing consistency, it's right there.

Maybe they clear it all up next season?

Well, that definitely felt like an 'in between generations' thing. I even feel they bottled Watch Dogs 3 by taking it super future instead of the comical brexit clusterfuck we inhabit.

It's fine solo. I had a player drop out through mine and it didn't phase me. It adds to it but playing solo doesn't lessen things.
