Cyberpunk 2077 no longer has wallrunning

CD Projekt Red have confirmed, to my great dismay, that the ability to wallrun has been cut from Cyberpunk 2077 over the course of development. Wallruning! The second-coolest movement in first-person games, after slidekicks! Tragedy. CDPR say they cut wallrunning "due to design reasons". Fair play, they probably know what they're doing with their own game. I think it still has the fourth-coolest movement, regular…

Amazon’s Crucible retreating back into closed beta

Less than six weeks after launching Crucible, Amazon are taking their free-to-play multiplayer shooter back into closed beta. It was not well-received or well-played, and last weekend didn't even break 200 players in-game at the same time. So they're taking it back into beta to fix and improve, then presumably relaunch later. Those player numbers are honestly not uncommon for a new multiplayer shooter, because…
