Played through Mafia: Definitive Edition, the ground-up remake of the first Mafia game. I’d only played Mafia 3, which was really good, but I have a special fascination with prohibition/depression era culture. The story and setting really appealed to me, and by many accounts the team did a great job fleshing out the original narrative into a more complex story while retaining the original levels and spirit of the game.
They also added actual old pulp magazine covers (which I love) as collectibles and I managed to beat the infamous car racing level on Classic Mode. Go me. Mafia II Definitive Edition is going on my buy list for sure.
I also continued my tactical RPG addiction with a small game called Element Space. It had some good characters with fun abilities and decent combat. The story was also OK, but a number of bugs and confusing design choices really weigh this game down to a point that I can’t recommend it. In fact I’d say it’s one to avoid.
