What We Like (And Don't Like) About The Second Hitman Episode

This week IO Interactive released the second episode for their new Hitman game, full title Hitman 6: So You Want To Be A Hitman? After some costume changes and a few grisly murders, we decided to put our heads together to talk it out.


Alienation Is A Great Way To Kill Aliens Together

Between its flashy explosions and deep weapon customisation, the PlayStation 4’s latest co-op action role-playing game is transforming me into a ruthless alien killing machine. Want to watch?


Sailor Moon And The Curse Of The Candy Crush Saga

Released this week for iOS and Android, Sailor Moon Drops is everything you every wanted in a Sailor Moon game, as long as everything you wanted was a Candy Crush Saga clone.


Unchained χ Is A Pleasant Little Slice Of Kingdom Hearts

Big Overwatch Update Makes The Game Better In A Lot Of Small Ways

Overwatch got a new update this week and it’s a big one. It’s also a good one, for the most part. In addition to the usual balance tweaks, the ramifications of which will likely become more clear with time, the update added five main things: a new escort map called Route 66, a new Hearthstone-inspired mode called Weekly Brawl, much-improved Play of the Game functionality, better progression with achievements and penalties for leaving matches.


Obsidian's Tyranny Is An RPG Where The Bad Guys Already Won

Let’s get this out of the way upfront: Tyranny is not Pillars of Eternity 2. It’s a different animal, a decidedly more sinister one. But the gulf between them is more than skin-deep.
