I was browsing Xbox Game Pass like two days ago and came across Sunset Overdrive, a game I hear is real good. Well, let me tell y’all, it really is. I just got an Xbox One S recently so Game Pass has been really useful for trying out some Xbox exclusives and just some stuff I never got around to like Rise of the Tomb Raider, but wow, Sunset Overdrive is incredible.
Did y’all know you can equip any of the character customization options on any of the 4 body types, and the body types aren’t really tied to words like sex or gender? It’s kinda wild, this game came out in 2014. I can’t even think of another big game besides Battletech that lets you use any customization option on anyone. The game isn’t perfect - there’s some kinda racist vibes around Asian-appearing women and some language like calling people “crazy” and stuff, but it seems like the character customization stuff all relates to the game’s “be yourself” message it occasionally remembers it has, and whatever the reason, I think it’s really cool.
Has anyone else recently dug up an older game that’s new to you? I’d love to hear about a similar experience. I’d also love to just talk about Sunset Overdrive if anyone wants to do that.
