Do you guys know about rocket league? The Rocket League video game has infiltrated my apartment and has captivated my excitement.
One Year Ago
About a year ago I was interested in playing rocket league and when I bought my steam link and steam controller. (Haven’t really used those much) however when purchasing the two pieces of hardware you receive two free games. Cool! I received Portal 2 (which I had played in the past with a buddy and already beat…great game btw) and I received Rocket League. I remember sitting down at my slightly chaotic office desk setting up my old Xbox 360 controller and loading up the game. At first glance the menu screen and graphics don’t impress but when you find a match and rev your engine, it’s on! Racing around the arena tapping the ball anyway I can while doing my best not to miss I found myself enveloped in the experience.
Flash forward one year forward to present day and rocket league is still alive and well in my home although it’s different. Now Rocket League is on my Xbox One. I mean who buys the same game twice….this guy does. Technically three times now. One for my PC, one for my Xbox One, and one for a buddy I play with for his PC. Every night for the past few months now my girlfriend, her cousin, and I play Rocket League as if it’s our daily routine. This game is great! Really! There are way too many good things to say about rocket league however I will try and boil it down to three words.
Exciting, Simple, and Cooperative
See I don’t play as many games as I usually prefer because of work but it really brings my home together and we get to participate in a shared activity. You know, other than Netflix and Amazon. We can only watch so many tv series. It takes no time to find a game and the games don’t last but 6ish minutes. No huge dedication to playing and slaying for hours on end like other games I enjoy. Just pick up and go and when you are done. It’s been under 10 minutes. Well Rocket League is kind of like puffy cheetos though. It’s hard to only eat one puffy cheeto and it’s hard to only play one game of rocket league once you start playing. All in all if you haven’t heard of the game or you were thinking of buying it I would say YES! BUY THIS GAME! You won’t regret it.
