Hitman Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Linux, macOS

Hitman, a series I’ve wanted to like since it launched, but still have not found the right game in the series. Well, it’s time to tackle another one. We come to Hitman or Hitman 2016 if you want to differentiate it from the other Hitman game from 2000. This is the IO Interactive’s attempt at episodic content. Let’s see how they did.

Hollow Knight Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, macOS, and Linux.

I previously talked about buying three games in January of 2018, as they were some of the most interesting games of 2017. Included in the pack was Sonic Mania, A Hat in Time, and Hollow Knight. Now I’ve reviewed all three games on Steam, and recently re-reviewed A Hat in Time as it was part of the Humble Monthly Bundle of August 2018. We actually have to go back to the three pack a second time, as I am beginning my reviews of Humble Monthly Bundle of November 2018. So how does Hollow Knight play?

Timespinner Review

Played on Windows
Also Available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, macOS, and Linux.

It also was going to be out in November 2015, so it’ll be a quick turn around. Yeah… I don’t back Kickstarters anymore for a lot of reasons, but let’s see if Timespinner lived up to its promises.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Review

Played on Windows
Also Available for PlayStation 4, (3DS in Japan only)
Coming to Nintendo Switch

At E3 2018, I remember going into the convention center excited to play something new. The first thing I saw in the South Hall, was Square Enix, I wanted to play something by them, and while Kingdom Hearts 3 was already building a big line, I saw Dragon Quest XI next to it and got excited. I’ve been a Dragon Quest fan for quite a while and while it’s never been the top franchise for me, I still enjoyed their games and their classic adherence to JRPG styles. So does Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of An Elusive Age live up to the grand series?
