Singularity, the Forgotten First Person Shooter

Singularity did poorly when it came out in 2010. Ironically, the time-mechanic focused shooter was more of a victim of its release time than poor design.

I enjoyed core Assassin’s Creed Valhalla immensely, but by the end of the game I had lopped off one too many heads, dive kicked one too many bears, and Ubisoft had thrown too much incomprehensible Animus bullshit at me that I needed to take a hiatus from Valhalla. Several months ...
