    Salting on Switch owners. You are skeptical of Mario & Rabbids? (I watched the trailer, call me skeptical)

  2. Clueless says:

    So do you think this will be any different from For Honor?

    • enricofairme says:

      Yeah. Absolver is more like Street Fighter then For Honor (from what I’ve read)

      • Ham Fiddler says:

        Absolver looks really cool. I didn’t play For Honour. No sense trying now since 95% of their player base is gone lol. It’s a pretty niche type of game
