Deck13 Surge Into Gamescom

It would be easy, and honestly not inaccurate, to call Deck13's The Surge “Lords of the Fallen with mech suits.” But at the same time, that would be doing it a great disservice. As this quarter hour of gameplay shows, there's a lot more to it than that. Once you look past the basic presentation…
