Should you download the update? Should you buy the game right now? Neigh.

The game industry's mass of layoffs has led to a major update for a popular fighting game releasing in a completely broken state.

A new paid DLC for Them's Fightin' Herds added two new characters, one of whom has the ability to cause infinite unbreakable combos.

Publisher Modus Games reportedly fired the quality assurance team for TFH in December while the patch for the DLC was being prepared, according to a QA team member who was also the administrator of the game's Discord server.


Missed opportunity for a "DLC Dropped Them Fighting Turds" in the abstract.

It all sounds like a load of horseshit to me. What a shitty situation.

Thank you, Donald. I appreciate you doing this. I'd issue a redaction for my otherwise glowing review (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xG7poFgTpE ) given that the promising story mode is canceled and something with the cross-platform netcode borked the online play in subsiquent patches... Any competitive events will likely be run on old versions that don't immediately and hilariously implode.
