Die a Reboot or Become a Trilogy – Vidjagame Apocalypse 403

With the rebooted Hitman hitting its third installment this week, we’re joined by Tony Wilson of Framework for a look at three other franchises whose reboots were successful enough to spawn sequels and become new trilogies unto themselves. Then we dig into Hitman 3, talk about Mortal Kombat movie news, and look at the mostly dead gaming genres you’d love to bring back.

Question of the Week: In honor of Hitman, what’s your favorite everyday object to use as an in-game weapon?

  1. QOTW: my answer comes from the timeless RPG masterpiece: Fallout New Vegas

    I had just finished getting fisted by a reprogrammed security robot so I took a second to bask in the absurdity of the situation before leaving the building. It was than that I was accosted by a small gang of 50s houswives adorned with curled hair and pink sun dresses, brandishing rolling pins. I then proceeded to turn them into piles of gore in glorious slow mo and claimed a rolling pin for myself. That rolling pin, although much less effective than a super sledge or machete, would go on to be my primary melee weapon for the rest of my playthrough.

  2. QOTW: The Engineer’s wrench in Team Fortress 2. It was a tough choice between that, the Scout’s baseball bat and Demoman’s drinking bottle. But it’s a wonderful gameplay mechanic to have the engy run around whacking his machines for upgrades and repairs. It’s also hilarious having him hit any suspicious teammates to make sure there’s no ‘spy sappin’ muh sentry!’.
