Who will survive this clash? There was peace and prosperity in the Kingdom. The king - the gracious ruler - dealt not only with matters of great importance, but also with small problems of people who were poorer and lived in more distant lands. One sunny day, a messenger came to the ruler with news, after hearing the news of which the King's face changed completely. One of the villages next to the marshes reported that there was a group of Trolls prowling the area, who had not been seen for many, many years. More groups of adventurers were sent to the Troll Wetlands. Unfortunately, neither of them has come back with the shield so far. After many, hearing was lost.

Max Rockatansky doesn't have an easy life, but nobody does out on the wastelands left after a nuclear war. Mad Max is an intense, harsh, and brutal journey for vengeance and a relative peace of mind. A third-person brawler with robust progression of both man and his trusty car, Magnum Opus. Will you brave the lawless wastes ravaged by bandits and destructive sandstorms?Vast and beautiful wastelandThe wasteland of Mad Max (PC) is a dried out sea, with shipwrecks and naval infrastructure spread all over it. Drive to a massive tanker repurposed for a garage, help people squatting in an old lighthouse, and investigate crevice’s left behind when the sea evaporated. And it's all open for exploration!Despite the harshness of the environment, the dawns and sunsets paint the setting in rich colours, making it one of the most picturesque images of post-apocalyptic wastelands in gaming.Intense car combatIt wouldn't be a proper Mad Max game without exciting car chases, and it delivers! Drag enemy drivers from their seats with a harpoon, shoot the exposed fuel tanks with your shotgun, slam into them with all the force of a front-mounted plow and more. High-speed chase scenes and vehicular combat are the true meat of Mad Max gameplay, and becoming a road warrior is satisfying, rich in explosions, and frequently bloody.Brutal brawlingMax has no time for fancy moves. When he gets out of his car he delivers powerful punches, crippling kicks, and stunning grapples. Add to this some old-fashioned shivs and limb-breaking and Max becomes the kind of opponent his enemies were unprepared to handle.Engage in dynamic combat promoting carefully planned combos, devastating counter attacks, and killing foes with their own weapons. Just be careful: Max can dish more than he can handle, and he'll die easily if you aren't careful!Sabotage and infiltrationTake down bandit bases through any means necessary. Snipe their spotters, detonate fuel tanks or pipelines, eliminate the war criers, tear down the gates and disable flamethrowers. Every base is a puzzle, and the solution is premeditated destruction and murder.And the best part? When you eliminate the bandits, you get to reap benefits from the place!Robust progressionGather scrap on your travels to upgrade Max's inventory and the Magnum Opus. Create leather jackets, pouches, and fashion brass knuckles from wrenches and screwdrivers. Put spikes on your car to prevent boarding parties, upgrade rims to shred enemy cars' tires, and install various V6 and V8 engines. They are but a few of the upgrade options, and you can pick and choose which upgrades you want active at the time. But be mindful: all car upgrades come with a drawback. Can't have heavy armor and top-notch acceleration, after all!
The first lesson is about gratitude. It talks about taking the time to appreciate all the blessings in your life, no matter how small.

Chessa's worries about her husband reach a fevered pitch as he closes in on winning the nation's highest office. How can she support his candidacy, even if it will mean becoming first lady? Meanwhile Darren's opponent, Leif Mitchell, is selected from his humble life as a stable hand and country rock singer to run for political office. His charm and leadership pave the way for him to become a national hero and a real threat as the leading Republican presidential candidate. A powerful Darren will stop at nothing to bring Leif down, causing Leif to reconsider his high road approach to politics. When Chessa finds out Leif is preparing to seek revenge on Darren in an attack that not only will destroy her husband's candidacy but will probably cost innocent lives as well, she is suddenly faced with a decision: Should she preserve peace at all costs, protecting those who would become collateral damage as a result of the ensuing battle and in turn sacrificing her freedom and risking her own life? Should she try to stop Leif, which may ruin his chances but save his soul? The Peace Maker is based on the story of David and Abigail in the Bible's first book of Samuel, a story of hardship, struggle, courage, and faith that God will lead his people if they but let him. 1.
