Have you seen Strafe? The uber-violent love letter to 90s shooters? Then you’re going to want to see these Collector’s Editions.
The big box is back! Sorta
Aside from in your face, over the top gore in games, the 90s were also known as the big box era for PC games. Though you wouldn’t know it now, since everything is digital, PC games used to be big business at retail stores. I remember the shelves at my local EB being overflowing with boxes. And most of those packages were monsters, some with cool pack-ins or interesting box features, all to make ’em as neat-looking as possible.
That era eventually turned into the little-box years. That’s when all PC game boxes were formatted similarly, after-which everything went digital. Well, almost everything. Every year there are still a few titles that go the boxed route.
Yes, like everything else about Strafe, it’s going to be for sale 90s style (as well as digitally). Devolver Digital and developer Pixel Titans have revealed no less than three CE’s today for the blood-soaked blaster. And yes, they’re all awesome.
