April 26 is the release of the second installment of the new episodic Hitman series. The first one was very entertaining and well put together as far as characters to disguise as, earning an 8/10 in our review. That episode really made it feel like you were at a French fashion show. There is not a lot of info out for this one but a picture and YouTube teaser have been released not giving us really any detail at all, but you can hear the ocean in the background and see a boat on the coastline. The upcoming episode is called "Sapienza". So maybe Agent 47 will be getting a tan? Assassinating lifeguards ? who knows but I'm excited. Also coming with episode 2 is an update that is going to fix some bugs in the game and most importantly supposedly going to cut down those load times i bitched about before which will be amazing! But really is it April 26th yet? Check out the screenshot below and update details as well.
In the latest update, the following fixes have been made:

Here We Are One Year Later
One fateful spring break just over a year ago would to us hypothesizing a concept. We loved playing games together, good or bad, and wanted to express that online some how. After streaming for the first time ever, the talks grew stronger, and thus came Player2Reviews. Other names were discussed, but this was the one that stuck. We new it would be a long and arduous road to becoming anything remotely popular and reputable in a field where so many were already established. So rightly so, we were the "Player 2's" in the field so to speak, the underdogs, the second choice in someone else's home court. After one year though, here we are, still pumping out material, making new relationships, and growing the brand. This is for all our friends and followers that helped us get here.

Doom is coming in just over a month, and this new trailer kicks it up all the way to 11 to show off how action packed the title is going to be. I dig these kind of action forward titles, and after the success of Wolfenstien The New Order, I am positive Doom will deliver. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think.

Letter Quest, the genre bending word game, is coming to Xbox One in just over a week. The popular mobile game is making the jump to consoles with improved visuals. Spanning 40 stages each with 4 playthrough variants, the game boasts an impressive 160 collectible stars. Also included is an endless mode, which definitely will add to the replayability. Mixing word games with RPG looks to be quite the combination. It looks like equal parts Boggle and 10000000, which should make for a fitting title on the Xbox One. Check back here on April 8th for our review.

An all new mode is coming to Rocket League next month. Previously teased on Twitter earlier this month, Dunk House was officially named and slated for April via a tweet today. This is excellent news, and add to the original modes as well as the hockey themed Snow Day variant. Rocket League has quickly become one of my favorite games, earning the sites first 10/10 for Xbox One games. We'll be sure to post some game play once the mode is out.

This trailer came on during my showing of Batman v Superman (which i thought was great) and when i saw Ratchet my jaw dropped thinking it was the same character from the PS2 games I played growing up. When they showed Clank I freaked out. Now i couldn't tell you anything about the games from the PS3 titles but i enjoyed the PS2 ones very much. Seeing this movie got me excited seeing that they're taking a game story line and making a movie that from the looks of the animations it looks great. The only downfall i see is the target audience they are probably going for may have not played those games meaning that connection might not be there, but it still looks like a good kids movie overall. Check out the trailer below!

After 32 hours with Ubisoft’s squad shooter The Division, I am still finding new places and things to do. As an open world shooter taking place in a disease ridden Manhattan, the game has been extremely ambitious since its announcement. For the most part, it delivers on its ambitions. Nearing the end of the game, I can say without a doubt this is the best cooperative experience I have had on the current gen. I have tried to play solo as little as possible, as the parties of up to four players makes for the best experience. Throughout intensely fun firefights, detailed exploration, and exciting looting, The Division is quickly becoming one of the most enjoyable games on the market right now.
As you walk the mostly abandoned streets of New York, the scope of The Division is quickly realized. Blocks away in any direction players can find a variety of things to do. From narrative based missions and side missions, to gathering resources and collectibles, the game is not short on things to do. The Division is an elite group secretly embedded all over the world to fight back against disasters from the inside. After creating your character, you are active to help fight back against rioters and newly formed militias that are wreaking havoc all over Manhattan. A solid amount of boroughs are yours to explore in travels to find out who caused the Green Flu epidemic and why, as well as the mystery behind the missing first wave of Division Agents. The narrative is great if you pay attention before and after the excellent gunplay brought forward, and is a story I am eager to finish.
What great news to see today, as the hands down best creators of party games Jackbox Games have announced some new upcoming titles. First off is Drawful 2, the follow up to the wacky drawing game of the same name that was included in the first Party Pack. You can watch the teaser below, which announced one of the first new features which allows players a whopping 2 colors! Though it may not seem like much, this will make all the difference in detailing the quickly made doodles. Drawful 2 is slated for a spring release.
They also announced Jackbox Party Pack 3, which will contain 5 new games and release this fall. This pack will not contain Drawful 2, avoiding double purchasing of the title. I have covered both Quiplash and Jackbox Party Pack 2 in the past, and own Fibbage and the first party pack as well. They have made my Xbox One the life of any get together and are an absolute blast. I am looking forward to getting hands on with these upcoming titles and showing them off to my friends. We'll keep you updated if any release dates come our way!

Resident Evil has long been one of my favorite franchises, and today it celebrates it's 20th anniversary. Creating the original standard for survival horror, Resident Evil has seen dozens of games released over it's 20 year span. Most recently re-releases have been all the rage at Capcom, with Resident Evil 0 coming to current gen and RE 4, 5, and 6 coming later this year. Resident Evil Umbrella Corps, the FPS online shooter, is also coming later this year to PS4 and PC. Many anniversaries are happening this year, with Pokemon's 20th anniversary happening late last month and our 1-year anniversary happening this week! Coincidentally, the site came about after we streamed Resident Evil Revelations 2 together, and the rest is history. Check out a special celebratory interview below and let us know how you are celebrating 20 years of horror in the comments below!
