Hour of Power – Rough Evolve Beta and Smooth Acoustic Death Metal

[youtube http://youtu.be/S8WSQ1dGcXw]

I played a pretty solid amount of the Evolve alpha and besides some long matchmaking times, it was a very smooth experience. My first session with the Open Beta, however, was rather rough. I suffered terrible connection issues and even encountered a game-breaking glitch.

I hope my acoustic shredding made up for all the time spent in lobbies or connecting to a match. I know it’s scary to think that a game coming out in less than a month could have so many issues, but if it’s any consolation, my two following play sessions were far smoother. Matches connected quite quickly and I didn’t disconnect a single time. I’ll be spending a little more time with the beta today and I’ll be sure to share my experience with you guys.

  1. Awesome… I laughed when I saw the title, as I also thought that some death metal greatly improved my overall beta experience.. Of course for the most part I had a really good time. I got to watching a few replays to Sylosis in the background and almost forgot they weren’t made together. 🙂 Thanks for posting this.

    1. A little death metal makes every better, I feel. My second and third play sessions with the beta were far smoother. I was able to actual play an entire match without getting dropped, several times in a row even! The last few major online launches have been pretty rough *cough* Halo:MCC *cough*… I’m hoping Evolve has a rock solid launch. I’m super pumped to own this game.
