Playing Hitman: Absolution, Borderlands 2, XCOM and Fallen Enchantress
Andrei Dumitrescu: It’s been another busy launch week and I once again feel the pressure that comes from seeing big and important games launch without having the time to actually sit down with them and see what they have to offer.Instead of picking up Hitman: Absolution, which my colleague is playing, I plan to spend more time this week with Fallen Enchantress, trying to finally take one of the good factions out for a spin and get a win, something that I have only been able to do during previous games with the Fallen empires.
It will be a turn-based strategy themed double bill this weekend as I also make my return to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, trying to get through an Ironman game without actually feeling the need to take save games from their original folder in order to have a back-up in case I mess up royally during a mission or another.
Andrei Dobra: This weekend will be spent with a few interesting experiences, as after completing Hitman: Absolution’s story, I’m going to jump wholeheartedly into its Contracts multiplayer mode.
Many of the assassinations from the story were impressive, but I’m eager to see just what the community can create when given free rein to choose the targets and various other rules in a level.
When I am not violently ending the lives of my unlucky targets in Absolution, I’ll no doubt jump back into Borderlands 2, as I’ve yet to try out the recently released Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage DLC for the first-person shooter.
As always, I’ll be jumping back into Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer mode for a few matches in order to complete the current Operation Privateer weekend challenge. I’ve been neglecting my Vorcha and Batarian characters, so I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with them.
