Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Dev Note:

I spent so much time trying to fix problems the first two weeks I wanted to work on some content for a change.
The new cards really feel like they enable more/different builds now from my tests, which is great.
Verdancy and Poison are now finally real builds, hurray!
Boomerang was quite a buggy weapon with no benefits for leveling, so hopefully the bounce change and new tier benefits will help 😀
Bow similarly was a very sad weapon, basically just a halfway between gun and sword with virtually no benefits, so the changes should make it very enticing to use.
Echo is the first new card that’s [Attach only], and hopefully is a good indicator of why I added the system. Similarly, some cards now have neutral stats like Heavy Hits or Persist, which make them better on some weapons but worse on others, meaning there’s value in attaching them.
