I think I want to play American Truck Simulator as Jack Burton


This can only end well

American Truck Simulator is out on Steam next week, and we have Patrick on point for the review. That’s all well and good. But lately, he’s been coming into our staff chat with what I have decided must be hip trucker lingo, and I just can’t get it out of my head. I need all the mental space I can muster to untangle these dang puzzles in The Witness, Patrick!

When I saw the launch trailer tonight, it dawned on me that I kind of want to play this game despite never touching any of the Europe-based truck sims, and more than that, I want to do so as ol’ Jack Burton, the wise-cracking, tank-top-wearing protagonist of Big Trouble in Little China.

I’m unsure if this is a great idea or a horrible one, which means it’s probably worth pursuing.
