Heroes and Villains of 2017

Welcome to the second part of Whatchaa.com's best and worst of 2017 series! Now, I don't think that a game necessarily needs a powerful nemesis for it to be a good game (The Last of Us comes to mind). But if there is a nemesis (and let's face it, in most cases there is that … Continue reading Heroes and Villains of 2017

Thief- Still my favorite stealth game

Thief (the 2014 reboot by Eidos Montreal published by Square Enix) was one of the very first games I played on my PS4 back when I bought the console three years ago a few weeks before Christmas (That's right, the PS4 was my very own Christmas present). I loved it, very much, actually, but didn't … Continue reading Thief- Still my favorite stealth game

My First Foray into Virtual Reality (PSVR)

I am, actually, one of those people who don't quite understand the 3D-movie-hype. Because, you need to understand that, instead of experiencing awesome effects, all I see are colorful yet blurry lines. And, therefore, even though I thought the idea of taking on Virtual Reality on my PS4 fascinating, I was reluctant to try it. … Continue reading My First Foray into Virtual Reality (PSVR)

Aragami is a beautiful and fascinating stealth game true to its name and nature

Having played a lot of shooters this year (namely SNIPER ELITE III and SNIPER ELITE 4, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Wolfenstein - The New Order and Wolfenstein II - The New Collossus) I found myself craving a change of scenery, which, for me, means stealth. Since I had already finished the badass … Continue reading Aragami is a beautiful and fascinating stealth game true to its name and nature

Wolfenstein II – The New Collossus delivers swashbuckling dialogue and badass combat along with a riveting story

Watching the trailers for Wolfenstein II - The New Colossus, you'd never guess how good this first-person shooter's writers are at storytelling and characterization. They handle the balance between fast-paced action sequences and easy-going dialogue with such brilliant ease that a full-blown homecoming party right after a harrowing shootout feels like real relief and not … Continue reading Wolfenstein II – The New Collossus delivers swashbuckling dialogue and badass combat along with a riveting story

HITMAN: Patient Zero Campaign Mission 4, Patient Zero

Alright, this is the last mission of the campaign and, daring to be bold and on the clock since I actually did this in the early morning before leaving for work, I finished it in a five minute speed-run. I have updated that speed-run since. Agent 47's last target is one Owen Cage, a cultist … Continue reading HITMAN: Patient Zero Campaign Mission 4, Patient Zero

HITMAN: Patient Zero Campaign Mission 3, The Vector

Next on Agent 47's list of sleeper agents is one Dr. Bradley Paine. Dr. Paine (what a name!) is hiding out in Colorado at the militia camp from Season One and he has already infected four of the soldiers with the virus in order to spread it around. Agent 47 has to eliminate all five … Continue reading HITMAN: Patient Zero Campaign Mission 3, The Vector

HITMAN: Patient Zero Campaign Mission 2, The Author

Once I had finished the first mission of HITMAN's new "Patient Zero"-campaign in Bangkok, I was intrigued by what would happen next. For what did happen once Agent 47 checked out of Thailand was Diana calling to tell him Nabazov's death had triggered what appeared to be a wake-up call for a number of the … Continue reading HITMAN: Patient Zero Campaign Mission 2, The Author
