2XL Games’ Robb Rinard discusses Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad DLC and more

A few days ago, we reported that racing legend Jeremy McGrath would be donating his share of the profits from Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad towards a bone marrow registry program. Very inspirational news, but is there anything to report about the game itself? As it turns out, yes.

New addition to the XBLA Fans team, Paul Acevedo (@segacon), recently interviewed Robb Rinard, Creative Director at 2XL Games, and learned all kinds of interesting things about 2XL’s racing games, including Offroad. In fact, Robb even teases the game’s first DLC pack. Read on to learn what’s in store for Jeremy McGrath’s latest racer.

Jeremy McGrath commits game profits to bone marrow donor program

By  •  News

Motocross racer Jeremy McGrath, 40, plans to donate his portion of the profits made off of last month’s XBLA and PSN release Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad to charity. McGrath’s haul from sales of the game will go towards “Be the Match.” The bone marrow registry charity maintains was crucial in finding wife Kim McGrath, 36, a donor this past week after doctors diagnosed her with leukemia back in May.

It has been a harrowing couple of years for Mrs. McGrath. Two years ago she was informed she had breast cancer, a disease that the American Cancer Society estimates estimates there being 226,870 new cases of in 2012 in the United States. One in eight women are believed to suffer from “invasive” cases of the disease during their lifetimes, and the chances of dying from it are about one in 36. As terrifying as those numbers are, the good news is that they are on the decline. There are currently two-and-a-half million survivors in the U.S., including the racing star’s wife.

She fought through the disease, enduring what she said in a blog post were “months of treatments and several surgeries.” Fifteen months later she said that she “was finally getting back on [her] feet.” The breast cancer survivor, having had the chance to recover and regrow her hair to the point at which it was once again “cute,” had reached a point at which she had turned her focus to getting on with the rest of her life.

Sadly, another excruciating battle with a serious illness — one that approximately 44,600 were diagnosed with last year in the United States — was on the horizon. More chemo was needed right away, and the mother of two would need a bone marrow transplant. Hospital visits lasting an entire month were in order, and her hair would fall out again. But that was nothing compared to the very real danger of losing her life if a donor was not found.

Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad review (XBLA)

Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad review (XBLA)

Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad was developed by 2XL Games and published by D3 Publisher. It was released on June 27, 2012 for 800 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Off-road racing is a relative newcomer to Xbox Live Arcade. Only two other titles have braved otherwise untouched territory, Sega Rally Online Arcade and the Mad Riders, left us feeling that as good as they were they could have been more. 2XL Games’ Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad is the third competitor in this relatively small market. It pits would-be racers against McGrath and six other racers in varied environments and vehicles. Unfortunately it doesn’t stack up to expectations, and while there’s a solid racer underneath, whether it’s a solid game is another story.
