What am I playing? [December 2018]
Like usual, the end of the year get’s crazy with cool games coming out. It’s a bit of a challenge to prioritize what to play next. So this is what’s currently on my list.
The HiTMAN from 2 years ago was a pretty good surprise. I remember that I told myself that I will only buy one episode to see how it is, considering that I burned myself with the Hitman that came out in 2013. Well, I got that first episode, then the second, then the third … and just like that I bought the full game right before the autumn sale. Oh well, I regret nothing! You can read my HiTMAN 1 impressions in this video.
HiTMAN 2 brings out more levels and continues the story from HiTMAN 1. Not only that, but if you own the first game, you can play it in this improved engine, basically you have the same HUB for both games. Good stuff. A small down side is that your progress from the first game does not get imported, so if you unlocked something hard, it’s not going to be there. For me this is fine since I only scratched the surface of the first game.
So, what about the levels in HiTMAN 2? I enjoyed them but I didn’t had that “wow” moment like I had with Sapienza in the first game. But that’s fine. It means I’m more mature. Haha
You can see the locations in this article.
I loved the 1st map (Hawkes Bay) because it was small. It was a good introductory level. Miami the 2nd map is also pretty amazing. The 3rd map (Colombia) was so so. Mumbai was an ok map. U.S.A was lovely. Another smaller map with a nice autum american look. I would like to go back into it to unlock the rest of the challenges. The last map is the Isle of Sgail. A beautiful looking castle with lots of things to explore. Maybe my 2nd favorite map.
Red Dead Redemption 2
November 2018 was a trully beautiful month because I got to play this beauty of a game. By far my favorite game in 2018. The world was beautifully crafted, I didn’t felt that I had to go all over the map to pick up “Crafting resources”, the minimap didn not feld like a Trello board where you pick up tasks to do. Arthur was a much better written character than John. A trully beautiful game.
Normally I would have skipped this, but EA has Origin Access, a service where for 15$ a month you get access to a lot of games, including the latest from EA, including BF V 🙂
So yea, since I burned myself with BF1, I didn’t want to spend full price with it so a 15$ tryout feld ok. The game is pretty enjoyable.
Crusader Kings 2 – Holy Fury (DLC)
Even my favorite Paradox game got an update. Holy Fury DLC brings out a lot of fun improvements like the shattered world, the randomizer, etc. Didn’t had to much time to play it.
Battle Brothers – Beasts & Exploration (DLC)
Even Battle Brothers got a DLC with new events, bigger map, new weapons, new monsters. This was my “go to” game in the past 3 days. You can read more about Battle Brothers in the review I made last year.
Other Games …
I got Middle Earth – Shadow of War on sale. 59 lei … on PS4. I have to try this out.
Parkitect version 1.0 is out. I have to try this out.
Football Manager 2019, like every year (almost) I feld into the trap and bought FM. I started playing with Notts County. I’m in the 4th season in The Championship. I would play more but it feels a bit of a waste of time right now. Not in the right “state” of mind & there are games that distract me a bit better 😀
Pinball FX3 – We got Williams tables. I played a lot of Medieval Madness! I even prepared a video that I didn’t released 🙁 And … guess what. Tomorrow we get another pack of 3 tables! I’m super exited to play Attack from Mars.
I just realised that after years and years I started to play the Wolf Among Us. I totally forgot to continue play it. Last time I logged into the game was 2 months ago 🙁
