I don't know how you were unaware of Rocket League until so recently, Bucky, but yeah, I think that's how it goes for everyone. I also believe everyone should own this game...I think you'll find that NO ONE on Blue's has anything bad to say about it, which is a goddamn miracle.
I've bought MOST of the DLC, not only because I feel they've earned my money, but because almost every pack was something I wanted. I'm bummed you can't do any personalization on the Delorean, but come on....it looks fantastic as-is.
I'm glad this developer managed to bring in enough to fund at LEAST one big game, if not two or three. Despite being Indie, the game is gorgeous, runs smoothly, and is properly supported post-launch. I have no doubt that small developers are looking at RL as "the way to do it right".
I'm just hoping to see some crazier maps, like SARBC had. The pirate ship one looks amazing!
