    Of course, there’s no mention of the PC HD upgrade, something they were ready to promise following their fucked up release of the Oddboxx…

    Anyone who hasn’t played Stranger’s Wrath should get this. Stranger’s Wrath was one of the best Xbox games that didn’t get as much attention as it deserved. I have really missed Oddworld games on this gen, I hope Lorne and crew get it together for the next gen, and these updated HD ports aren’t all we get from oddworld..
