It’s extremely complicated. Big weapons do the most base damage, yes, but then other weapons can get more hits in, there’s a difference between slashing and blunt damage, and armour skills change what potential damage each weapon can do. Honestly my advice is to forget about it and pick whichever one you find most fun Read more

There’s usually a 50 minute limit on missions - much more generous. The beta was overwhelming, but it does a better job of explaining things gradually in the full game. It’s still not exactly accessible, but it’s less arcane than it has been previously.

Basically, yeah, that's the size of it - Kotaku UK is run by a different publisher that hasn't licensed Kinja, so uses totally different tech. Including Disqus.
