Risk of Rain 2 - Indie Game Hidden Gems

Looking for value for money in terms of replayability? Look no further than Risk of Rain 2, an excellent buy for anyone that likes roguelike and/or looter/shooter games. First off, it is difficult to place the game in a single genre as it spans a few genres successfully. At the simplest level Risk of Rain 2 is a 3 rd person shooter with progression meaning the more you play the more you unlock, allowing you to get further in the game and thus unlock more items and characters, and so on. If you haven't played the original Risk of Rain, not to worry, neither have I, and I thoroughly enjoyed the sequel anyway. Unlocking and collecting items is where the main appeal of the game lies, the various loot you collect stacks to affect your abilities such as movement speed and attack damage and changes the gameplay every time (run) you play. This means that, whilst at first the levels will seem very similar and repetitive, as there are only small variations, the way each level unfolds differ

COVID-19 Blue Skies Are Fading - Cape Town Smog 2021/07/16

Whilst there are not a lot of good things to say about the Coronavirus/COVID-19 one major positive, if you live in or near a big city, is/was the reduction in smog levels. Cape Town skies were a lot bluer for a while, though my view of the city skyline is slowly returning more to normal, a muddy blue. View from Salt River - Cape Town - 16/07/2021
