Welcome to the second part of Whatchaa.com's best and worst of 2017 series!

The games I start playing and then end up finishing in more or less one really, really long session are rare. The driving factor usually is curiosity. I simply want to find out what happens next. Not necessarily because the story is so gripping, or emotional, as was most recently the case with Hellblade-Senua's Sacrifice. … Continue reading Dishonored: Death of the Outsider or To die or not to die
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, which was announced during E3 2017 and coming in September, is the story everyone who played Dishonored 2 saw coming from miles away.
