@Carl-G YES! I'm so glad I'm not alone. As soon as I saw the UI, I reached straight for the touchpad to control the cursor. Honestly, I wouldn't think this would take many hours to implement. I appreciate it's not the most important thing in the world, but I'd like them to add it in if they have a spare afternoon before release!

Another one bites the dust. Neither of these are the end of the world — October was already silly season — but I can't help but feel that EA are starting to really lag behind their competitors these days. FIFA's a juggernaut, yes, but they've ceded the NBA market, no one seems content with Madden, they messed up the Titanfall launch spectacularly (IMO), Battlefield 4 is broken, Hardline is delayed, and there's been very little word on Mass Effect, Battlefront, and Mirror's Edge.

@Punished_Boss @Jazzer94 I think their thinking is that with these hardcore titles, the people that want them know where to get them — they don't really need to put them on shelves.

I'm not saying that's right, but that explains the logic. Plus, I think a game like PS Vita Pets and Invizimals complements something like Minecraft much better at retail than Oreshika.

@iDangerMouse_ Considering how quickly you can get to 8, I'm thinking they may need to go higher than that. Having said that, there does seem to be a lot of awesome gear which is gated more by your performance in the Crucible/Exploration than mere levelling, so I'm guessing that will be the end game stuff, presumably.

Another good read, Robert. I think this game has the most impressive skies ever, which sounds like a really weird compliment, but it's cearly something that's been a huge part of their focus.

Did have my first groan moment with the game today in the Strike (?) mission. Really didn't enjoy the battle against the robotic spider and big sphere thing - both complete and utter bullet sponges, which I often find can be the bane of these types of games.

I am, however, really liking the deathmatch stuff.
