    I have this issue and their support website is infuriating. If you click on contact us it goes to a page where you can select the problem, then it has the list of things you shouldn't have (wireless devices, fishtanks, etc) but doesn't give their contact email! They do list their phone number (855-877-9099) so I guess I'll have to try giving that a call. Good to hear it's limited and that they're gonna fix it though.

    Single player was great and worth the 35$ I paid. I preferred the original's multiplayer though. The gimped customization of the mechs and their relative rarity was a big turnoff to me. That said, the first had a lot of rotating modes and some were more fun than the normal offerings, so i imagine this will be similar (especially with the DLC being free and not splitting the base as happened in the original).

    Sounds like they need a stand alone expansion that is really experimental but uses some of the beautiful assets they've created and then they incorporate ideas from that moving forward? Otherwise maybe it just has enough name recognition and prime time advertisements for the normals to pick up enough copies and keep the series buoyant.

    ps - i loved the Mako, maybe my fave part of mass effect haha, along with the rest of the 80s sci fi design (prometheus has badass space trucks too!)

    I feel like I could make a list of the coolest things I've discovered and it wouldn't even overlap with this list! This game has so much!

    The game is way too easy. Make one or two cuts, rotate, congrats you beat the level. It is really fun to watch your drunk non-puzzle solving friends play though. They get so mad. I've had more fun with 1-2 Switch surprisingly haha

    Definitely having the joycon disconnecting issue; even with the switch placed beside the tv and has about 10 feet line of sight to my controller. I unplugged a wireless keyboard receiver that was on the other side of the tv and stopped having the issue for the most part (if I put my leg up and block the controller it happens still sometimes. How did this get by?

    When I played 1-2-switch in tabletop mode outside there were no problems at all, even being slightly farther from the switch.

    Once my pro controller charged, I've been using that for Zelda and have zero issues. That game is great!

    Hopefully they do an update to boost signal strength even if it cuts battery life on the joycons. Gonna wait until the next iteration of the joycons or until nintendo fully addresses and fixes the problem before getting more (want more color options too haah).

    the controller issue is def worrying to me. I kinda hope it's fixable, unlike the dead pixels that were so worrisome in handhelds of generations past. At least they're detachable and I bet there will be some kind of solution before too long.

    @lonecow galleries are generally meant to sell art so your complaint "Except she is using that to help sell her game" falls flat there. Perhaps you mean a museum could provide free access to something like an art installation piece titled "Childhood Trauma," but in that case the artist would have already been compensated with grants, the work would have been donated, or some other form of payment has been rendered to the artist. The work Lily might even be featured in a gallery/museum. Why do you think it would be more valid being there instead of on the iOS store? I think the democratization of access to art is one of the great things digital distribution can address.

    As to you claiming you will "stand by that if the work doesn't speak for itself without having the artist say exactly what is happening in an interview it fails it's objective." You're welcome to do that, but you are (either through willful or actual ignorance) leaving behind a century of changes in the art world.

    As to "If someone has read this article and plays the game vs. someone who just picks the game up randomly their experience will be drastically different because of pre-knowledge they have going into it. In my opinion she does her own work a disservice by explaining it beforehand."

    I agree for the most part.
