Hitman: Episode 4 - Bangkok (PS4)

Too many Kooks

Like milk and cookies, fish and chips, and a copy of Ride to Hell: Retribution and the nearest volcano, hotels and Hitman go together very well.

NieR Automata May Get a Lengthy Playable Demo Before Release

Three seasons planned

Despite looking like a disaster prior to release, Hitman's episodic model has actually worked out swimmingly.
