Rise of the Triad


Rise of the Triad is up for pre-order on steam for $14.99. I am not usually one to go for pre-orders, but the price is pretty cheap and pre-orders get a copy of the The Apogee Throwback Pack (normally $9.99) for free. For those of you unfamiliar with Rise of the Triad, it is a remake (or reboot?) of a game that was first released in 1994 by Apogee Software (formerly 3D Realms). The game had a pretty fun single player campaign, but what I remember the most fondly was the absolutely insane multiplayer mode. Right now the multiplayer gaming landscape is full of realistic tactical shooters, so I am absolutely ready to mix things up a bit and go old school with Rise of the Triad. If you think your reflexes can handle it, pre-order a copy and I will meet you online.
