Outriders, the next big online looter shooter, releases later this week for consoles and PC.

See, the headline is a pun based on the classic song “Riders On The Storm.” BUT also, there is a deadly anomaly storm featured prominently in Outrider’s intro. So there are really multiple layers to the joke, which according to the rules of comedy makes it funnier. Though not as funny as the Snoop Dog remix of “Riders On The Storm.” Few things are funnier than that thing.

Anyway, I’m excited to play more Outriders. The demo was neat and I like People Can Fly shooters like Bulletstorm. So I’ll give this a shot. It’s launching on Game Pass too, so I might as well play it.

its weird, i liked destiny, love warframe, i enjoyed remnant, even, goodness help me, i enjoyed anthem, but something about the aesthetic of this game just, i have no interest. i like shiny and glowy, this is gritty and blah.
