Random Encounters, Ep. 47: ‘Hitman Go’, ‘Pokemon Sun’, PSX, and The Game Awards

| VIEWS 1090

As we head into an unseasonably (and unreasonably) cold winter, you could do a lot worse than warming your ears up with the latest episode of Random Encounters.

We start things off with Hitman Go, another in Square-Enix’s spin-off franchises that seem to accompany a lot of their mainline entries. Can a high stakes game of chess starring Agent 47 actually work?

Next up is Pokemon Sun, an incredibly exciting new take on one of Nintendo’s signature franchises. Is this the best Pokemon game ever? All signs are currently pointing to an overwhelming “yes”.

We close things out though with a bit of multimedia coverage as we tackle The Game Awards and PSX. The Last of Us: Part IIUncharted: The Lost LegacyDeath Stranding, and Mass Effect Andromeda are all on the plate for a little discussion as we unpack the pile of information that has come out over the last couple of weeks.
