Review: The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition

An easy purchase for new players but maybe a hard sell for existing owners.

It was not until I reinstalled the original PC release of The Outer Worlds that I was able to really appreciate the improvements made with the release of The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition. Initially, I believed that this looked exactly like the same game that I had played on PC back in late 2019 when it first came out.

"I'm just not seeing what makes this Spacer's Choice Edition worth...

    Retire, Bobby.

    During a meeting with other senior managers and executives at Activision Blizzard, CEO Bobby Kotick said that he would consider leaving the company if he is unable to fix the issues that he helped to create. Kotick did seem to stop just short of saying that he would step down in the meeting that took place this past Friday. He merely left the door cracked open a bit if the issues weren't fixed "with speed."

    Now you too can smell like a chili eating hedgehog or sweaty muscle man.

    You ever just sit back and ponder what Sonic the Hedgehog would smell like? He's known for eating chili dogs, so would he smell like that or something else? He also likes running through lush green landscapes, so would he perhaps smell instead like freshly washed laundry drying in a summer breeze? It really makes you think, doesn't it?

    It's a whole lot of nothing.

    Battlefield 2042 has been available for those that ponied up the big bucks for the Gold or Ultimate editions, priced at $89.99 (USD) and $109.99 respectively. The standard edition of the game is slated to be released in about a day from now on November 19. To say that the game needs a ton of work would be a gross understatement.

    The only hope was the promised "Day 1" patch for the game that was said to arrive just prior to the standard...
