I feel bad for certain heroes. People who just want to have a nice Christmas holiday, or retire gracefully, but end up being right in the thick of things when evil stirs. Heroes like John McClane and Rico Rodriguez don’t get to retire or have a holiday. No, they get explosions and one-liners.
Similarities with Bruce Willis aside, Rico Rodriguez does have a pretty hard life. Explosions everywhere, people trying to shoot him, stopping at nothing to wipe out our parachuting protagonist. They even use the weather as a weapon, but it seems ol’ Rico doesn’t mind that too much. It just means there are more things to use his grappling hook on and sexy backdrops for his wingsuit escapades.
Just Cause 4 releases next month on December 4 for PC, PlayStation and Xbox One and it seems Avalanche Studios is throwing everything at Rico to see if he can take it. Luckily good one-liners seem to have the power to heal heroes, otherwise they would be in real trouble. You can’t shoot the weather… Okay, nevermind in Just Cause 4 you can. Eat that, Michael Bay.
