Hitman 2 Review

The tagline for Hitman 2 is “make the world your weapon.” It’s much better than 2016’s “enter a world of assassination,” which ushered in Hitman, that year’s soft reboot of the murder simulator series. The previous slogan was hilariously overwrought. It also didn’t accurately describe what these games are about.…

Diablo 3 on Switch Unlocks Its Best Mode from the Start

Diablo 3 on Switch is an absolute delight. I’d actually argue the game plays best on consoles in general (that dodge roll just feels right). But there’s one big bonus for playing the Switch version specifically—and it’s not just being able to play undocked. Although that’s nice, too, and should…

Marvel’s Spider-Man Review

Peter Parker is the heart and soul of Marvel’s Spider-Man. That should seem obvious. The perennially put upon hero only dons a mask to protect those around him. The man beneath the red, black, and blue is still basically human. His motivations certainly are—more-so than other ultra-popular superheroes like Batman and…

Red Dead Redemption 2 Review in Progress

We here at Fanbyte didn’t get a review code for Red Dead Redemption 2 until launch day. Given how massive the game is, and the fact that Red Dead Online doesn’t launch until later this month, I’ve opted to do a review in progress. This page will house my thoughts about the…

Have you ever run into a bug in a Bethesda game? Assuming you’ve played a Bethesda game, the answer is probably yes. The massive Elder Scrolls and last few Fallout games are rather infamous for it. But how would you describe those bugs? Would you call any of them “spectacular”? That’s the…

Sequels Are the Perfect Cure to My Chronic Backlog

I fell off Assassin’s Creed: Origins pretty hard last year. That’s unusual for me. Ever since Assassin’s Creed 2, I’ve devoured Ubisoft’s period piece murder sims from stem to stern. I climbed every tower. I mopped up every side quest and hunted every kind of whale. I even collected all those damn feathers.…
