Is there such a thing as too many good games at once? This week sees the release of Hotline Miami 2, Ori and The Blind Forest, GTA V heists and Cities: Skyline. And, I’m going to be playing all four.
Ori and The Blind Forest
First up, let’s talk about Ori and The Blind Forest. I’ve been playing a bit of it since Saturday. I haven’t quite finished it yet, but I’ll post my review later this week. Many websites have already published theirs and the game is pretty much universally praised. It’s one of the most beautiful games I’ve played in a long time. The best way to describe it is ‘tough beauty.’ Sometimes it can even get frustrating, but I’m loving every minute of it. I can’t recommend it enough. And, the soundtrack is amazing. Moon Studios knocked it out of the park Ori and The Blind Forest. You can pick it up on Xbox One or PC tomorrow.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
Speaking of soundtracks, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number also releases today for PS4 and PC. It’s the sequel to Hotline Miami and will conclude the Hotline Miami saga. Awesome tunes and tight gameplay set in a violent world. What’s not to like about that? The replay value soars with HM2 thanks to custom levels via the Steam Workshop.
GTA V Heists
Any GTA V fans out there? Our day has finally come. GTA V heists are available right now on Xbox One and PS4. Get your friends together and plan out your heists.
Tired of all the violence? Cities: Skylines is for you. You know what you wanted SimCity (2013) to be? That’s what Cities: Skylines is.
Man, I don’t even know which one I want to play first. It’s a great problem to have. And, March is just getting started. We still have Bloodborne, Battlefield Hardline and more. March is the new November.
