In a way, we kinda feel sorry for Three Fields Entertainment. The teensy indie start-up carries the burden of being "the Burnout guys", which means that expectations are raised every time it so much as farts. Of course, exposure is no bad thing for a team with about three employees to its name, but it also means the disappointment is all the more difficult to accept when it puts out something that stinks.

Take the recently released Lethal VR, which wishes it was Point Blank but is more Point W*ank in reality. [Editor's interruption: Yes, I'm aware I've used that gag multiple times now, but it's a good one. Let me recycle it.] This cop training simulation should be cool, but it's got all the entertainment of an episode of Question Time watched entirely on mute. Also, it's literally a tech demo that you pay money for.
