What’s your favourite thing about Evolve: Stage 2? You only get one.
I love damn near everything about this patch so far, from how speedy my Wraith is to the fact that there seem to be a boatload of new players for me to eat contest myself against to the fact I can take movement speed, traversal recharge AND cooldown reduction perks and FEEL like a cheating bastard without actually BEING one. But I gave it some thought and my absolute favourite thing about this entire experience has been one fairly minor change.
There are no more scum-sucking butt-f***ing $#17-eating ~"@£:$>~"@£:$>"£@:$>~ CARRION BIRDS ANYWHERE.
Now I can skip through the map gaily slaughtering fodder and munching it up without having to consider whether I should be eating this 2 meat steamadon or waiting for a 3 meat mammoth bird then making my way to that tiny little overhang where I can cheat my last meal like the weight-watchers course from hell! If I see a pack of reavers I no longer think “oh ffs another thing I need to slow down, melee then leave”, now I think “SECOND BREAKFAST!” and descend upon them like a buffet of screaming alien-monkey canapés. It makes the experience of playing a monster feel far less like a hipster wearing a pretentious fedora taking pictures of his organic, locally sourced, free range qinoa and instead makes it feel much more primal - you are the apex predator and eat anything that moves, doesn’t move, looks at you funny or is taking the most ironic selfie of his life in his new fedora.
I love it, bring on the funny-smelling sky people with the pain sticks so I can turn them into even more blue bar.
