Didn't they have a mode in Battlefield 4 (or was it 3?) that was basically a BR mode? I remember starting out each round with only a knife and a pistol and had to scavenge for better weapons before I got shot. While not a real BR-mode, it had ideas from it (or at least that specific one).

And then there's all the non-Steam copies. It's hard to guess how many that would be though. But seeing the copy from Uplay costs 20% less than on Steam, and tons of key sites like GMG has it for around 20% less than Steam, I can imagine that the 80k number is quite a bit higher.

Does this include those who downloaded it 'free' from the Xbox Game Pass?

No, Game Pass users are not included in that number.

I haven't read the article in case it spoils anything, but I wanted to ask what you and Matt think about the game? Does the story seem good, are the mouse and keyboard controls fine (or rebindable)?

I'm hoping it's good co-op fun, as I'll (if it's any good) be playing it with a close like-minded friend of mine. We won't have any problems agreeing with choices anyway.Reply

Our articles don't contain story spoilers, but they do explain what you do in a certain section of the game, so you can decide from there if you want to read further! The final paragraphs of my feature have a little sum-up of our feelings with zero spoilers.


As for our enjoyment, both me and Julian really enjoy what A Way Out has to offer. It's got excellent co-op ideas that are implemented really intelligently. The story is not as serious or special as many people had hoped for, but we both felt that doesn't matter much: the fun comes from the experience, not the plot. If you're looking for a Greatest Hits of Crime Cinema: The Game, then this is it, with all the pros and cons that comes with. Cliches everywhere, but they're fun to play yourself.

If they somehow managed to get both big and small publishers on board to get games at release day, then I'd be happy to.

Humble Monthly is great and always have lots of great games in them, but I've played 100% of the games in them that I would be even a little interested in. Obviously I'm not the target audience for Humble Monthly, so my opinion doesn't count (and is never going to happen), but that's what would be needed to get me to purchase the Humble Monthly.

I'm somewhat looking forward to this game. I usually don't like pvp games (or playing with randoms), but after watching 20 minutes of gameplay it looked fun enough. At least it's free for 14 days (which more than I need anyway) so it doesn't hurt giving it a go.

I wonder how bad it'd be with only two or three players in the team. Perhaps we'll be "forced" to matchmake with randoms.

NZXT Kraken X72 review: tall in stature and high in price, but falls short on performanceNZXT Kraken X72 review: tall in stature and high in price, but falls short on performance
nu1mlock Avatar
It's just my opinion, but I don't think that price should be a factor in a review. 6/10 sure sounds bad and by the number alone, one would think that it doesn't cool especially good, but in fact it's better than the X62 (although only a tiny bit).

In my opinion, a review of hardware should focus on its features and how good it is, while it's up to the consumer to decide if they want to pay the higher price for a small gain. The price should obviously be in the article (as it is) and it should be mentioned that the reviewer don't think the higher price is worth it, but the fact is that this is a superior product and shouldn't get a lower score because of its price.

But that's just me.Reply
Jacob Ridley Avatar

I believe pricing is one of the more important aspects of reviewing products such as this. Price vs. performance makes all the difference between competing products and is often the main consideration among consumers. The fact you can get near-enough the same performance, or even greater, for a vastly reduced price is key.


Having said that, regardless of price, the X72 is exceptionally large and it's, more or less, wasted space considering the relative performance of smaller units. It's not quieter than the Corsair H115i Pro for its bulky size, either.


Overall, it's an okay unit which won't disappoint. But for that price, size, and performance I couldn't realistically give it a better score compared to the other units we've reviewed.

But the resale value wouldn't be $800, so if miners sell the cards, you could pick it up on ebay for $20. :)

Suddenly a great PhysX card at that price ;)

Resellers have sold random keys for years. This is the highest odds I've seen though.


Even legit resellers like GMG have or are selling random keys with a chance to get something worthwhile.

Very true, key-boxes have been common for years now (added around the same time as G2A started doing worse-odds cs:go cases). All of their keys (whether listed in the title or not) are rolling a dice for the game. I'm looking forward to when they join the skin trading websites and let you choose the percentage yourself (for a variable price)
