The Latest Hitman Episode Is The Good Kind Of Difficult

Hitman’s latest episode, “Freedom Fighters,” is very serious. Agent 47 infiltrates a militia compound in Colorado in pursuit of four targets. There’s not a lot of room for fun on the compound, for Rube Goldberg-esque murder traps that make Hitman memorable, but this fifth episode is great in another way. It’s hard.

Paper Mario Color Splash: The Kotaku Review

I love when Nintendo games aren’t afraid to be weird. Paper Mario: Color Splash is funnier and more irreverent than anything else on the Wii U, occupying a strange, occasionally conflicted territory somewhere between platform-adventure and RPG.

Burly Men At Sea Is A Small Game About Shipwrecks

I have a thing for shipwrecks. Readers might remember that I lived on a boat, which sank. I have a tattoo of Shackleton’s Endurance sinking. Boats sink a lot in Burly Men at Sea. But unlike in real life, in the game I actually wanted my boat to sink, just so I could see what would happen.

Super Paper Mario Is A Role-Playing Game About Nintendo

Super Paper Mario has the typical hallmarks of a 2D Mario platformer — stomp on enemies, jump over pits, and avoid obstacles — but failing carries minuscule stakes. If you fall into a pit, you only lose a single health point. The enemies are weak, by and large, and powerups and Shroom Shakes are plentiful. That it’s nearly impossible to die in the game garnered a lot of criticism in 2007, with players claiming Super Paper Mario made too many concessions to young children and was ‘dumbed down’ for the masses.

But this criticism misses the point: Super Paper Mario is not a platformer so much as a role-playing game, a meta-commentary about acknowledging gaming’s past alongside its present.

How Xenoblade Chronicles X Made Me Rethink JRPGs

Travelling the alien landscape of Xenoblade Chronicles X (Chronicles X) is sublime. You really feel like you’ve crashed onto a whole new world, where even gravity is different and you leap through the awe-inspiring environments of Mira.
