It is a tough time to be online right now. We are watching as a whole race rises up against the systematic oppression they have experienced for years. It is hard not to be upset and the urge to help is strong. If you are in Australia you may feel like helping is too hard, the distance too great. Player 2 would like to remind you all though that Australia is by no means innocent. Indigenous Australians have been victimised and silenced by ingrained systemic racism and police brutality for generations. We, as a nation, have treated them in such a bad way for so long their voice is no longer even acknowledged let alone heard. So helping starts at home. Write to your local state or federal MP. Donate or assist a charity that works with the Aboriginal community. Educate yourself about the traditional owners of the land you are now sitting on. These are just some of the small but important steps each and every one of us needs to take to make Australia and, by extension, the world a better place. Player 2 would also like to say it is important to recognise all marginalised voices in this country, from the LGQBT+ community to disabled Australians to other minority ethnic and refugee groups, and work together to make this a truly equal place to live.
Become the Original Made Man – Mafia: Definitive Edition Launch Date
We’ve had the Mafia II and III definitive editions on our hot little consoles for a couple of weeks now, but the real question mark hangs around the original Mafia remake. Well, 2K has released a trailer, which doesn’t show very much, but it does show enough to look very much like modern graphics and high res/def everything!
The media release focuses on how this remake is going to retell the story of the first game, following protagonist Thomas Angelo. It promises a rebuilt-from-the-ground-up remake of the first game, including updated script and new dialogue, expanded backstories (read: side missions) and extra cutscenes.
It also suggests the game has been made in the same engine as Mafia III, citing, “the same stellar game engine that powered Mafia III’s best-in-class cinematics”. I’m not quite sure what that sentence even means, but we’ll find out come August 28th, which is when Mafia: Definitive Edition is launching.
Check out the trailer and start tawkin loik a wise guy in anticipation!
