After the colossal week that was the release of Black Ops 2, things just aren’t slowing down, as we see the long-awaited and long-overdue return of Agent 47 in Hitman: Absolution, and a sequel to the Wii exclusive Epic Mickey makes its jump to a multiplatform co-op adventure.

Hitman: Absolution

20 November 2012

Agent 47 returns this week after a lengthy hiatus, and fans of virtual choking and body-dragging should prepare for the bald-headed assassin’s biggest challenge yet.

Backstabbed by his organisation and those he trusted, Agent 47 must go up against all odds to bring down those responsible for his betrayal.

Smarter AI, gorgeous visuals, incredibly detailed environments and hundreds of ways to dispose of targets will give Hitman: Absolution more depth and variety than ever before.

So expect some sharp-dressing and silent violence this week.  To prepare you for the game, Square Enix released the sharpshooting precursor game, which you can read about in MyGaming’s review of Hitman Sniper Challenge.

Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

18 November 2012

To the jubilation of platformer fans and followers of the great mouse everywhere, the Epic Mickey sequel is making its way to the Xbox 360 and PS3 this week.

Featuring Mickey and Oswald the rabbit, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, features full drop-in drop-out co-op multiplayer, which will be sure to add a lot more action and excitement to the vivid world we caught a glimpse of in the original.

When played co-operatively, players will have to work together to use Mickey’s paint and thinner abilities, while complementing them with Oswald’s ability to control objects around the environment.

Epic Mickey 2 was developed under the watchful eye of Warren Spector, so expect some serious love and care in the upcoming sequel.
