Star Wars: Battlefront II came out recently. I thought something weird was going on, and tried to remember the last time I stepped into a time warp, but couldn't. For some reason, people were very angry at how this game has pay to win microtransactions. That's strange, because I don't remember those, nor did I remember it looking that pretty. Then I realized that it's another one of those rebooted "let's release new games with the same name as old" games. Unoriginal lowlifes! So let's review an old game with the same name as a new one!
Place garlic, oregano, basil, and ground beef into a large mixing bowl. Thoroughly mix together. Mold into 12 (almost) half pound patties. Grill for about 15 minutes (or to desired doneness). Serve with buns and toppings (cheese, tomato, lettuce, etc...).
Road Redemption is a sort-of spiritual successor to Road Rash. I say sort-of, because none of the original people involved in it made this. I backed this when it was on Kickstarter several years ago. It went on Steam Early Access not long after, and I've been playing it on and off since. It recently came out for real, and it's been a great ride!
I'm not enthusiastic about "remastered" games, so when Blizzard announced when they were remastering StarCraft, I was suspicious about it. I know that an incredible amount of these remasters are for games that haven't even been out for 10 years. The original StarCraft is like 20. That's four console lives! Okay, fine, I guess I'll take it.
Hey look! I can play and review a game without it taking forever. Here's a game that's (probably) the last in a series of not-RPGs. True to form, this is still not an RPG, but at least this one ends well.
After spending hundreds of hours on open world RPGs, then their addons, and enjoying them, I wanted to play something very different: something light-hearted (and maybe a little shorter). You know, how games are supposed to be. I sorted through the hundreds of games that I have, mostly acquired through Humble Bundle, and quickly decided the next game(s) to play.
During the last Christmas Steam sale, I picked up the Fallout 4 Season Pass. I had considered getting it about a year prior before the price got jacked up to $50. But I had not played the game yet, so per my DLC policy, I passed. The season pass was on sale for $30 (its original price), and that seems about right for the regular price.
