The orginal GRID was fantastic.
People done have to buy the maps individually, at their crazy prices. The steam ‘gold edition’, or whatever it’s called, gets slashed to crazy prices in every steam sale; and it includes all of the map packs.
Besides the complete edition, the map packs themselves become less than a dollar each during those sales too. It’s just so cheap I’m sure a lot of people pick them up, directly or indirectly.
This whole ‘share a coke’ thing is so bizarre to me. I was abroad most of the summer, and came back to find it running rampant in my home town. I don’t understand the big deal. Isn’t that what we do with them anyways? Why do we need it to be written on the bottle for us?
Great read. I’m not surprised that you used to be involved in poetry/readings. Your writing always has wonderful flow, akin to a well written speech or – now that you’ve pointed it out – poem.
On a side note, 15% gamer seems like a good number. I’m probably around 10% myself, and I consider myself an avid gamer. I read all the news, listen to podcasts… But I don’t work in the industry.
Hoping this is crossbuy. I never picked up the vita version, I’d be stoked if I could enjoy both!
