It’s The Pletteau’s favourite video game related feature: The Bargain Bin Review!
Here’s how it works: I dredge the depths of video game stores / Steam looking for cheap games in the $1-$20 range. Games that were once $50-70 and were either very bad or have been out for a long time. I then review said title, taking into account the quality of game and its price. I pass this information on to you and we are both richer for it.
Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
Remember Kane & Lynch: Dead Men? Released in 2007, Kane & Lynch looked incredibly promising. It followed a pair of prisoners, Kane and Lynch, forced to team up. You played as Kane and the catch with Lynch was that he was a heavily-medicated psychopath. It seemed really cool, but less-than-stellar reviews coupled with “Gerstmanngate” (the incident wherein Gamespot fired reviewer Jeff Gerstmann allegedly for a bad review). Kane & Lynch was, in a single word, awful.
