  9. It turns out I was right as tomorrow's video, which is uploading now, is indeed the final video for Mad Max. It took 40 parts, but I finally reached the end and recovered the Interceptor.

    Next week I intend to start on Just Cause 2, (unless there are some technical issues to stop me) which I reviewed back in 2014, before Is started capturing review playthroughs. That, and how fun it is, are the two reasons for my selecting it.

    Have a Happy New Year everyone!


  10. Not only the week but the year has come to its end, and, unsurprisingly, there has not been much news this week. Still there is a little to cover, and I will start with the time sensitive news of the last free games the Epic Games Store is giving away as part of its Holiday Sale 2021. If you are interested in the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy, all three titles, Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, are free until January 6. These are not just the base games either, but the Game of the Year, 20 Year Celebration, and Definitive Editions of the titles, so you will also find the DLC included in this offer. Personally, I enjoyed them all and would recommend picking them up if you are interested at all.

    Speaking of the Epic Games Store's free games, when the Tomb Raider Trilogy offer ends, Gods Will Fall will be the free game the following week. It was not exactly my game, but I can see some enjoying it.

    The only other bit of news I have comes from 1047 Games as the studio is sharing some of the statistics from Splitgate. Though still in open beta, the portal-spawning title has been downloaded by over 15 million people and seen 108 billion shots fired, just in the second half of 2021. Speaking of portals, seven billion have been spawned and the distance travelled through them has added up to 163,011,470,780 meters. That is about 4068 times the circumference of Earth or about nine light minutes. The statistics also share there have been some 2,384,575 portal kills, so clearly they have not been used just to cross distances.

    To showcase these statistics, the company has put together an End of Year Recap video and infographic, and promised we can look forward to what more is to come in 2022 as the studio has gained significant funding following the game's success, and hired many experienced developers to make it the best it can be.

    Unfortunately that is about all of the news I have to share, but next week should be a fair bit more interesting. CES 2022 and other events are coming soon to announce the next generation of various technologies and devices. Until then, have a great New Year!

  15. So a package arrived last week from Techland and Stride PR that definitely succeeded at intriguing me because in the packing slip it mentioned a Christmas hat. Dying Light 2 is a zombie survival horror game, so I was curious to see what this might turn out to be. Well, the whole thing turned out to be pretty awesome and here is a video of opening the Christmas box.

    Thank you Techland and Stride PR. Merry Christmas to you as well and may the next 30 years be amazing.


  16. It's nice having the day off work, as it means I can get the video recorded a bit earlier than the evening. Continuing, near-finishing Mad Max again, and if I am right about how close the end is, might be able to finish it with the video next week. Wait... that means I'll need to get the next game figured out... Maybe Mad Max will continue a little longer :rolleyes:

    The video will go live at the usual time tomorrow.
