Destructoid article regarding Gorgeous update

I'm now further excited about this update! I am however apprehensive about the gorge tunnels, considering marines can use them too. Sounds like a shooting gallery for marines. It seems like the entrance should be covered with copious amounts of whips. This also sounds like a fine griefing opportunity as well.

Yeah. Clog in the tunnel :P

Seems silly that marines can use it, when aliens cant use PGs.

Wow, knew nothing about this, vaguely excited!
God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

True, but you could say roughly the same about aliens having greatly increased mobility from using the vents on each map.

I'm really curious to see how these tunnels work out. It would be nice if it allowed alien comms in pub games to NOT go Shift Hive first (less games of doing celerity asap and dropping shifts all over the map to establish map control right away). I think it'll offer a lot of potential for turnarounds.

As a side note, the graphic updates look amazing!
