In Case You Missed It – Gaming News for the Week of March 13 – 19, 2017

Alright, I’ve got Mass Effect: Andromeda pre-purchased, I’ve re-downloaded GTA V, and I’ve avoided talking about how bad Nintendo Switch cartridges taste. What to do this week..? Hm. I’ll think about it later. For now, let’s go over the past week’s news in another installment of In Case You Missed It!

In Case You Are Waiting for the Next Elusive Target in Hitman

Here’s something to read in the meantime. IO Interactive posted a retrospective from the past year on their blog, detailing some of the wackier shenanigans players have gotten up to and all the additional content the developers have added since launch. My favorite bit of info: “70 people died in one puddle in the game.
