So, today I read on Variety.com that Netflix will be bringing The Witcher to the small screen. Not the game, of course, but the Witcher-saga by polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. I love the books and I really adore CD Projekt Red‘s The Witcher III-The Wild Hunt, but… Why the hell do you have to go … More Too much to ask for? (This is a rant)
I don’t like shooters. That was, for a very long time, something I firmly believed. The main reason for that was not necessarily that I really suck at shooting, which I usually do, but had more to do with the fact that I find picking off targets arcade style incredibly boring. There are a very … More SNIPER ELITE – A Stealth-Survival-Shooter, I think. And pretty awesome.
As mentioned in my last Favorite Mission-post, this one brings us back to the Assassin’s Creed-franchise, more specifically back to Assassin’s Creed II and beautiful Venice. Why this game? Italy! Venice! Ezio! Need I say more? That’s what I thought. Seriously, though, I still consider Assassin’s Creed II the best to date (Let’s face it, … More Favorite Mission Four – Assassin’s Creed II, Deja vú
While I really don’t listen to the radio, I love discovering new music. Some artists I get to know through video games, others by way of Twitter. Not every artist that catches my attention ultimately becomes a favorite, like Code Elektro did two years ago, but here are some that did. (Actually, I’ve been meaning … More It’s all about the music
I remember browsing through last year’s E3-coverage and that there were a few games that caught my eye: Horizon: Zero Dawn was one of them, Vampyr another, but the one game I am really excited about right now is the upcoming sequel to the excellent Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, which is called Middle-earth: Shadow of … More Horizon Zero Dawn is out – And I don’t really care
I thought the first DLC Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, System Rift, was excellent, but A Criminal Past upped the ante (even without Faridah Malik, who I secretly had hoped to see again). It also leaves some interesting question marks. Now, you really shouldn’t play this DLC whithout having finished the main game, but that’s been … More Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – A Criminal Past or The Winner Takes It All
So, in case you were wondering what I’ve been up to these past few days, I actually did a lot last week and tried a few games I had wanted to try out for ages. Also, I played the For Honor Beta-version. Destiny First, I finally started playing Destiny on my PS3, only to find … More A very pleasant weekend in games
Dishonored leaves the player a lot of choices, the first and foremost being whether to play it stealthy and (mostly) non-lethal on Low Chaos or to go in guns blazing and with a lot of casualties on High Chaos. Since the level of Chaos affects the world itself, you better choose wisely. I absolutely adore … More Dishonored 2 – Three Ways to Play
First of all, I miss Aiden Pearce. Which is why, after having finished WATCH_DOGS 2, I promptly returned to Chicago, police chases and gangster shoot-outs. Don’t get me wrong, WATCH_DOGS 2 is a highly entertaining open world game. It also does a lot of things better than its predecessor. But it still is one of … More WATCH_DOGS 2 – Worth the bucks?
Hey, folks, Welcome to 2017 and welcome to another of my favorite missions! For starters, Deus Ex: Human Revolution remains one of my most favorite games to date and just playing this mission again felt so awesome! Now, why this game? As previously mentioned it is one of my favorites. What I like most are … More Favorite Mission Three – The mother of infiltration missions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution
