One of my main critiques, of every video game I’ve played since I started my ESO habit, is a lack of John Cleese.

Powagrid succeeds in making you think you have a chance; it pulls you pack into missions even after you’ve been blown to smithereens more times than you care to count. This is what you want in a game: a sense of “I’m going to win this time; I think I’ve got it.”
