As son of Redbox’s Chief Marketing Officer, Aidan has some big expectations to live up to! While he succeeds in many things (including being an all-around awesome kid), he’s especially pretty great at video games. Aidan took some time to chat with us and tell us all about one of his new favorite games, Rocket League. Check out what he had to say!
What do you enjoy most about Rocket League?
The thing I enjoy most is the variety of options for nearly every aspect of the game. For example, you can pick game modes, customize every aspect of your car, choose the type of match you want to join . . . everything! I also like how well the CPU’s are balanced. You typically can’t find well balanced CPU’s in games – they’re either too hard to play against or too easy but with Rocket League, the CPU’s are well done and easily fit to all skill levels.
What’s your car of choice?
The car I enjoy the most is the Ripper! It’s a dangerous looking car and when you add the spiked Ripper wheels and the Nitrous Rocket Trail, the car looks ready to take on anything!
Do you ever play basketball or hockey modes? Do you enjoy them?
I don’t play either too often but when I do, I like the hockey mode because it’s so similar to the soccer mode. The basketball mode is not my style because I’m horrible at wall driving and the basketball mode revolves largely around that.
Are you competitive? How often do you practice?
I’m not an “uber” competitive player with this game but I do like to beat my friends when they come over to play! I don’t practice too often on my own because I prefer to play games when my friends are around (and my parents only give me so much video game time).
Do you ever practice controlling your car in the air?
I like using my rocket boost to make myself fly around and try my best to control it and get better while playing but I haven’t practiced with it too much otherwise.
Do you play with friends? What is your strategy on the field? Do you prefer being a goalie or out in the field?
Rocket League is the favorite among nearly all my friends. When I play with them, my strategy is to follow the action which is usually around the ball. I occasionally play goalie, but it’s not my favorite. I like being out in the field. No matter what I decide to do, there is never a dull moment. That’s what I love most about this game.
The developers are constantly working on the game and adding new features. Are there any features or modes you’d like to see added to the game in the future?
I would love to see some sort of keep-away game or a mode where the goal is to destroy other cars. I think it would also be cool to have some type of World Cup feature.
