Whoa, you know what i just realized? You can't get the free weekend anyplace other than steam. Even the parent company's platform wants me to pay money for subscription. That's pretty weird, maybe Origin just doesn't have a "free weekend" feature coded into their store. They should probably get on that.

(Sorry, taking a swing at the anti-EGS crowd)

This game looks like it was designed for tweens.

The game you're looking for is called Hyperscape. Just pick up the Skybreaker and the Slam hack. Skybreaker is a massive one-shot rocket launcher that deals more damage and aoe the further it travels. So you get massive air with your abilities and rain down havoc from on high.

Because I agree, I've watched gameplay of Rocket Arena and it looks like it feels awful. Still though, it's free, so I'll take it for a spin.

I watched some paid streamers (I assume) play this for a bit, and my god it looked awful. It looked like it felt awful, if that makes sense. If you told me this was an unfun party game on a console, I'd believe it. Nothing about this game looked fun, challenging, exciting nor interesting. Oh yeah, and one of the heroes had some bland and boring and highly repetitive sounds. They sounded like placeholder sounds.

Before this free weekend, the average player count for this game according to Steam was approx 90. 90.. for an EA game released during a shutdown. Cooking Simulator has had a higher player count average over the same month timeframe. Let that sink in. That's good for ranking at approx #1360 on Steams charts.

Between this game and Disintegration, we have seen two top-tier (talent wise) games come out to 100% failures. You know your game sucks that if during a flu shutdown, people still won't play it. I read that Dis had exactly enough players to have one full game.. and a peak user count of 129. Ouch.
