I loved Road Rash growing up but this series and others from this era like Skitchin' seemed destined to remain relics of the past.  Thankfully, after a Kickstarter campaign Road Redemption was born.  I didn't realize how much I missed that game premise, and the improved graphics and functionality is amazing.  I picked the game up in the latest Steam Sale, and was delighted to see that the Shovel Knight is a select-able character.  This game is still "Early Access" and hasn't been updated in a few months, and many of the "update" areas of their website haven't been touched in awhile so I can't tell when this game will be completed.  However, in the meantime there is a ton of fun to be had here.  I would like to see them improve the firearms, as they are nearly impossible to aim while also avoiding crashing into obstacles.  The melee weapons however, are pure delight.  As is timing a kick into a oncoming car, or placing C4 on their bike while you quickly try to get out of the blast radius.  Expect a full review soon as I get further into the game.
