    The cutscene in which the hair appears and disappears on Alex's character's head was juuust goofy enough (and intentionally so.)Thanks for the QL, Alex, Vinny and Abby!

    Like 'Halo', 'Gears' felt done by the end of '3' (though in the case of the former, I did enjoy '3: ODST' and 'Reach'.) And watching this...I dunno, this game's just not inspiring me all that much.Jef...

    There's a sidequest-character-bit wherein the player is required to take a shit to progress the quest line?Nice

  • borealum wrote a review of Hitman 2 Gold Edition.
    'Hitman 2' (2018)

    In my humble opinion, this is one of the best games ever made, in its genre or any other - certainly, it was my Game of the Year for 2018.Taking the foundation of 'Hitman' (2016) and improving upon it...

    This brings to mind one of those dime-a-dozen post-apocalyptic sci-fi MMOs from the mid-to-late 2000's meets 'Destiny 2' meets 'The Division 2'. Even if I'm being unfair in that statement and the game...

    Very much appreciate Alex's three-hours-in spoiler warning near the start of the video here. There is a distinction between dipping one's toe in with a QL and knowing how events (a few hours in) play ...

    100% agree with Alex about the 'max efficiency' farms some people seem to favour. A big, empty and arid space with grids-upon-grids of crops just feels wrong to me, somehow. Give me a verdant forest a...

    Dan's enthusiasm is a joyous thing to behold and hear. Thanks for a great QL!

    Honestly, this game died when the choice was made to not rip off 'Smash Bros.' hard enough.
