I was deeply into Rocket League a few years back. I initially got it on PC when I was doing a weekly game night with some friends. They lost interest quickly, but I kept at it and it became one of those sort of EVERY NIGHT kind of games. Then after a while a buddy of mine became interested in playing it on Xbox One, so I grabbed a copy there and got into it AGAIN. When it was announced for Switch I figured I'd pick up a copy at some point. But now... it's FREE.
I just got in a PDP JoyCon grip thing that makes the JoyCons feel beefier - like a real controller, plus adds better triggers, AND it came with these stupid little nubs to put on the analog sticks that I CAN'T BELIEVE really do make a huge difference. And I wanted a game to test this thing out on. So I fired up Rocket League.
For whatever reason I decided not to link my old Steam or Xbox accounts, and just start fresh on Switch. It was like hitting the reset button. But my goodness. It's all coming back to me. (And now that horrible Celine Dion song is stuck in my head).
The first match I played online just to test this controller out, my team won 4-1 with me scoring 3 goals. Yeah. I love Rocket League. It seems so simple - SO SILLY - it's soccer, but with cars. Yet... it's amazing.
I feel like I'm going to get sucked right back in.
