Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        IIRC the Special Edition was the most definitive? but yeah, when you buy it on GoG, you get like 3 versions of each game haha

          I saw posts about it earlier this week but was busy at work so I glossed over 'em. Guess I'll pick up both GoG bundles.

      Republic commando was such a great game when it came out.

      It has aged poorly however.
