Radical Heights Launched

Radical Heights is now available for Windows on Steam, offering what Boss Key Productions calls X-TREME Early Access for their free-to-play battle royale shooter. They also now are selling a Radical Heights Founder's Pack with cosmetic items and in-game currency for the game, noting, "This product is not eligible for refund." Here's the trailer showing off gameplay, and here's word:
Welcome to RADICAL HEIGHTS, a free *X-TREME Early Access* BATTLE ROYALE shooter. Partake in high-stakes battle royale gunplay in a sunny SoCal dome as contestants drive-by on BMX bikes or stalk other contestants from the shadows in search for weapons and prizes...but also CASH that you can bank - win or lose! Whether you spend that cash on righteous customization in your personal prize room or pull it from an ATM to purchase weapons early in the next game -- building a wealth of cash is as important as taking down the competition in this irreverent 80s-themed action game show where everyone wants to be rich and famous!

And everyone involved on this thought 'Yeah, this is gonna' be fucking radical, bro!'? Wow. Just wow.

However, never underestimate the negativity and cynicism among gamers. A game like this, even if it were good, would likely suffer the same response. The wounds are still fresh from LB. It's the game equivalent of a parent beating their child (shut down LB) and then two days later throwing a party (Rad Heights announcement and launch). Parent, "Oh, I didn't hit you hard! Hey, have some cake! It's rad."

It's not just negativity and cynicism, it's personal grudges, fragility, and entitlement.

You see it in anything with fandom, but video games just happens to have a higher percentage of fandom. Movies can be another area, to a lesser degree, but I honestly saw someone the other day say they refused to ever see a movie with The Rock because of how bad Scorpion King was. That movie was almost 20 years ago, when he was a nobody in Hollywood and was happy to get a speaking role - WWF wrestlers usually got put into garbage at best and he was taking what he could. How insane to ignore things created just for people like you, that tons of people like you love, for something almost 20 years ago.
