Last week, Hoosegow Flask asked “How necessary is playing the original to understanding any references in the game?” about Wasteland 2. The answer is, of course, “None”… but I did have an excellent adventure at the Agricultural Center where giant vegetables were growing and giant rabbits were attacking me. If you played the original, you remember the Agricultural Center mission there where you eventually ended up taking on Harry, The Bunny Master.
In Wasteland 2, you can visit Harry’s grave.
Now, it’s just generally awesome to fight giant insects and giant bunnies in an overgrown Agricultural Center by itself. There is no need to have played the original to enjoy the heck out of that. But… well, the grave for the boss fight from 25 years ago was a nice touch.
It’s enough to make me not mind not playing Shadow of Mordor. I still am not thinking “I NEED THE NEW SYSTEM” quite yet… but I am noticing that Sunset Overdrive is a 360 exclusive. And I am noticing that quite hard.
So… what are you playing?
