How evil can you actually be in The Outer Worlds? Find out here, live!

I know I'm probably biased, but for my pocket change you won't have a better time on a Wednesday night than watching our dear VidBuds Matthew and Colm hammering the heads off people in The Outer Worlds. The thing is that even in RPGs with deep choice systems, like Obsidian's space cowboy adventure, most of us don't actually do the evil thing, do we? This…

Disguises and slow-mo combat have me itching to visit The Outer Worlds
