This Codemasters game came out during holiday 2009. Thanks to a sale on Steam this holiday season, I was able to pick up this game for less than five bucks, and it is worth every penny. So why are we talking about DiRT 2 now? Because it does a lot of things right – as an arcade racing game, an extreme sports game, and as a PC racing title. If you can get your hands on a copy, it’s definitely worth your time.
We love us some Hero Academy here at NA headquarters (Truth: Robot Entertainment was our first stop at PAX East this year). Robot Entertainment returns the community love by deploying a FREE update, available now, that adds single-player challenges to try out new factions and strategies. The update also adds a tutorial, taunt award system, and additional Game Center achievements.
This is totally awesome for a couple of reasons: you now have something to do while waiting for your friends to take their turns (not pointing any fingers here). Or, if you’re as inexplicably terrible at this game as I am, you can jump into single player and try to figure out where things went wrong in life.
In any event, more Hero Academy is a good thing, and if you’re not playing, this is the best time to start!
