Lawbreakers might just be one of the best shooters that few people are playing this year. Take a gander at the Steam charts, and the concurrent players for the Boss Key Studios debut game borders almost on non-existent. Which is baffling stuff, as Lawbreakers is a solid title with plenty of attitude, ideas and variety within its hero-shooter setup. So what’s the deal? Where’s the fanbase and how much do the numbers really matter in the long-term vision for Lawbreakers?
The problem with fishing in video games, is that it just cannot compare to the real thing. Unlike racing games that at least have an expensive physical solution that provides all of the thrill without the blunt force trauma of a car crash should you be unsuccessful in taking a corner, fishing doesn’t have that advantage.

The Astro A20 is a wireless successor to the more traditional A10s. It’ll make use of a 5.8 GHz signal to transmit sound to your brain, can apparently last for up to 15 hours on a charge and has foam-padded ear cups with microfiber upholstery. Much like the A10, the A20 is also designed to be capable of taking a serious amount of abuse without it retreating to its room to listen to Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory album.

Beyond the community and people who’ll most likely introduce an exotic Pulse Rifle that fires off sound effects based on Randy “Macho Man” Savage ring interviews (OOOOH YEAAH I’VE BEEN TO THE DANGER ZONE FUNKY LIKE A MONKEY!), there’s the visual aspect of this sequel. Destiny 2 on PC is going to look mindblowing on PC when compared to even the latest consoles that Microsoft and Sony have trotted out. It’ll sear your retinas, provided that you have a PC that’s capable of rendering those graphics in the highest of fidelities. I don’t have such a PC.
