Underworld Ascendant was a disaster. "Riddled with bugs and bizarre mechanics, Underworld Ascendant is a bafflingly poor debut from OtherSide Entertainment" was how Rick put it in his 25/100 review, and since release in November the development team has been trying to fix what is essentially a broken game.

Sharing highlight moments with your fellow Fortnite fans (or whatever your game of choice) is fun, but also a hassle. I don't know about you, but I'm usually too busy trying not to die to remember to record what I'm doing, and even if I do manage to come up with something watchable, uploading it to be seen by three people who are probably just going to tell me how much I suck anyway is an aggravation I can do without.
