I wasn’t sure whether it was as a joke or not at first, but it looks like one person with enough cash to spare could be getting what will be the most expensive special edition of a game ever (and probably will not be topped any time soon). Codemasters revealed today that they will be releasing one version of their GRiD 2: Mono Edition. What is included with this special edition?
- PlayStation 3 Console
- Specially packaged PlayStation 3 version of GRiD 2
- Branded racing suit and gear
- A factory tour of the BAC plant, where they make:
- A 170mph BAC Mono supercar (in GRiD 2 livery)
How much will this special edition set you back? $190,000 (£125,000). Like I said, it will only be available to one customer, and will also go into the record books as the most expensive, commercially available game as a special edition. So, anyone going to gather up the cash to get it?
Gear heads and racing fans rejoice. If you remember back in 2008, Codemasters released a game called GRiD, Race Driver: Grid outside the Americas. It was somewhere between a simulation title and an arcade racer, but it allowed you to essentially run your own race team, with you as the primary driver. The game was quite popular and I recall having a lot of fun with it, especially given that it did a very good job of feeling like you were progressing in a racing career and it had a great, albeit sometimes hilarious, damage engine. Not many other racing games, I feel, gives players quite the adrenaline rush as that title has.
Many gamers have waited years for the sequel, which was announced in 2010, but with the focus for a long time still being on Codemasters’ popular offroad racing series, DiRT, GRiD 2 was kind of put on the backburner, much to the dismay of fans. Until now.
If you are a big fan of rally games, or driving simulators in general, this is a deal you shouldn’t miss. Dirt 3 is considerably one of the best rally games in its genre. With that in mind, Codemasters is celebrating the success with a complete edition of the game due out sometime this March. The complete edition will include every DLC since the game was released on May 26th 2011, that’s over $30 in value. It will include 12 new tracks, 2 new locations and plenty of cars for you to play around with!
Developed by Codemasters, Operation Flashpoint: Red River is a FPS military ‘simulation’. They were kind enough to send us a copy for review, and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to give this game a once over. I can say, I’m glad that I had the chance to play this! So on to the review.
So lets start start at one of the coolest intro videos I have seen in a long time, it’s gritty, it’s humorous, and its got some facts in there about past issues, conflicts, and political unrest. They put quite a spin on it, the intro really had me hooked and I then became invested in the story. It has a certain style, to which I can’t name, but there are commercials that follow the same style.
