The Crew but it’s EA.

Everyone keeps saying that Payback takes huge inspiration from the new Fast and Furious films, but if you dial time all the way back to the original releases including 2 Fast 2 Furious (still one of best sequel names ever, shut up it’s brilliant) and Need for Speed has ALWAYS been on the same wavelength of the series. However more recently they ditched that in favor of trying to make better racers vs cops modes and zero’d in on that. Even the new 2016 self titled sequel had a hard time breaking the mold. But the continued success of the newest generation of Fast and Furious films have given rise to a better Need for Speed experience.

As far as reviews go, many reviewers weren’t too into it, but Vega disagrees.

More like Sonic Farces, amirite?

When the best part of the game is the soundtrack, it might be time to re-evaluate your plan.

The New England weather simulator.

Par for the course of HMG, we try to start talking about the game but then move on to other things. If you’re interested in the DLC because you enjoyed the game, it’s worth getting. It’s simply more of the game added on, and you can either play it post game or during an initial run/new game+.

Ignore Battlefront II, just play the first one some more.

Star Wars Battlefront II is making it’s way to shelves whether you like it or not. But if it sucks, why not just keep playing the first one instead. The first one doesn’t have loot boxes and has a great player base.

Quit bitching about the microtransactions, seriously.

Hard Mode Gamers is proud to say that during the course of reviewing the game, we did not spend one red cent on the loot boxes. Our reviewer had an absolute blast with the game and has it well on its way to getting a coveted 10/10 from our harsh review standards. Either way, it’s a good game, microtransactions be damned!

What’s your favorite adaptation of Middle Earth Tolkien tales?

Grind time. Maybe you should just watch instead.

It makes sense in context.

Okay it doesn’t.

But it’s not clickbait.

It kind of is but we address it.

We’re just saying it’s more fun to watch than it is to play, ok?

Also, that’s what passes for a plot now, is it?

Less is more?

Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite is definitely… a fighting game released in a year that is rich with fighting games. The list of games goes on and on and we could name them all but that’s no what we are here for. No, we are here to talk about what you can expect from this game and our guesses as to what they are doing for DLC.
