How to add more twitch to an already over populated twtich market...speed up a game and slap a popular name to it. Sorry, but the original 1st and second were Epic and have not been reproduced here. This is just crap. Want a decent FPS for both twitch, tactic, and stratigic gameplay? Try AVA. (but it lacks large territories like BF)
