It was Double D who said, “Summer rains, you can never predict ’em.” The randomness of Risk of Rain 2 is its secret sauce that has kept me returning round after round. No matter how well I memorize map layouts or enemy attack patterns, I’m never fully aware or prepared for what’s in store.Continue reading Why Risk of Rain 2 Is Addicting
The SNES Classic Edition released Yesterday. No doubt, thousands of people lined up outside retailers overnight for a chance to relive 80s-90s video game nostalgia.
