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 Thought Redfield Looked a Little Different in RE7

Capcom wants you to ignore the discrepancy. Since Chris Redfield was announced as the star of a future DLC for Resident Evil 7, fans have since noticed that the classic character looks a bit off from his previous incarnations.

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.
