^Season One is a little more like classic Hitman games than Absolution in that it's a series of jobs, but with an overarching story. In a straight play, it's shorter than Absolution, but it has more to do (e.g., every target has multiple ways of execution and many of them are fun enough to be worth the replay). It's not literally sandbox, but it's the most open world the series has ever been. They dropped intuition (which was a new feature in Absolution), but you don't need it to get Silent Assassin.



I think Hitman has become my favorite video game franchise. My first was Mega Man (and there's still a lot of nostalgia for that cute lil Asto Boy knock-off), but I honestly couldn't beat all those and I never got into the X series. For a long time, I would've said Metal Gear Solid was my favorite, but #4 was like a continuous FMV that you were occasionally allowed to play and truthfully I've now replayed Agent 47's adventures much more than Snake's. Mind you, PS1's MGS itself is a better quality game than any single Hitman title, but the following games didn't maintain the same level.

So Mike Matei reviewed Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, reminding me that the game does exist and that I need to get around to playing it one day.

NothingButSkillz plays Spider-Man, part one

Goddamn, the game is gorgeous (granted, he's playing on a Pro, but there isn't a significant difference between baseline PS4 and Pro). The game really seems to be Spider-Man's version of the Batman: Arkham games, if you will: a major game about the character with a serious benchmark for quality.

I really will need to pick this up sometime soon.

^Mike Matei beating TMNT (NES) without scrolls or Don. That final battle had me laughing pretty hard.
