Weekend Whammy: What Are You Playing This Weekend?

The weekend has snuck up like some sort of professional hitman and executed a perfect stealth take down on my sorry excuse for a body. Still, weekends mean its time to pack in a whole lot of gaming, movies, books and other entertainment. Let’s do it!

I’m going to keep this one relatively brief as my new nephew (he’s four months old) has come to visit this weekend. For the most part I’ve been putting in the time with Darksiders 3, a game I’ve been eagerly awaiting and was genuinely afraid we’d never see given the IP was in limbo for a long time. It hasn’t blown me away so far and I do sort of miss the loot system from Darksiders 2, but it has been a pretty solid action romp with awesome art design.

Hitman 2 Review – Near Perfect Assassination

So far I’ve knocked out people with a fish, a brick of cocaine, a thrown apple and a variety of blunt objects. I’ve also drowned people in toilets, blown them up with fireworks, fed them poisoned chips, shoved them off cliffs, dropped sharks on them, squashed them with speakers and so much more. I’ve dressed as a waiter, a garbage man, security, a fast food vendor, a servant, a racing driver, a doctor and even a pink flamingo. It’s all just in a days work for a professional Hitman.

Hitman Intro Pack Review – It’s A Hit, Man

Agent 47 returns in controversial fashion as Square Enix implement a bold episodic plan for one of their biggest licenses, something which we’ll discuss later in this review. But for now we have a taster of what is to come, enough to get a handle on whether IO have managed to bring their iconic character back into the favor of gamers after Absolution, a title that I personally really enjoyed but is often cited as being much weaker than fan-favorite Blood Money. Simply titled Hitman this fresh approach to selling a triple A game could be seen as a soft reboot of sorts, one that could potentially be the herald of big changes within the industry if its business model succeeds. There’s a lot riding on this, then, so is it any good?
