So Payday 2 came out a couple of days ago and everyone is throwing out their reviews and giving their impressions and all that jazz and, well, BH Impact doing the PR for 505 Games' Payday 2 provided Gaming Blend with some review copies and I get the opportunity to write about a game I didn't have to pay to play.
Payday 2 is here. The game from Overkill Software and 505 Games has officially launched. The title has been a passion project for the developers and is one of the most highly anticipated games to release this year, despite not having a $50 million dollar marketing budget or a ridiculous advertising campaign.
Some uber good news today for fans of Overkill Software's heist-shooter, Payday 2.

Next up, a new video has been released showcasing how you can do a bank heist as stealthily as possible.

Stealing from the Russian mafia... sounds simple, right?

Too bad it didn't happen that way.
