Happy Wednesday! What games have you been playing lately? I just finished Hitman‘s Paris and Sapienza missions. If you love games involving stealth, disguises, and figuring out multiple ways to accomplish goals, Hitman will keep you busy for hours. I also started Night in the Woods and am obsessed! I relate with Mae returning to her hometown and feeling disconnected from yet drawn to the people and places she knew.
Let us know in the comments or on Twitter what you’re playing! Here’s news and links we’ve been thinking about.

At Sidequest, we have a flexible staff of some 40 contributors. Publishing a Game of the Year list for each of us is simply unfeasible, and there’s always a lot of overlap.

Melissa Brinks is Sidequest’s editor in chief, co-creator of the Fake Geek Girls podcast, author of The Compendium of Magical Beasts, and an aspiring beekeeper. She once won an argument on the internet, and tweets at @MelissaBrinks.
