Doublejump Reviews Hitman 2 – Doublejump

Although Hitman is quite a venerable series, spanning eighteen years and six games (eight if you count mobile versions Hitman Go and Hitman: Sniper), most would agree that it was with 2016’s episodic soft reboot that it finally found its stride. While the earlier games have their fans, especially 2006’s Blood Money, Hitman 2016 finally saw developer IO Interactive find a […]

Doublejump Reviews Tetris Effect – Doublejump

Although it was greeted with some surprise on its unveiling at this year’s E3, Tetris Effect has been a game long in the making.

Doublejump Reviews The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset – Doublejump

Last year’s Morrowind expansion built on these improvements, while dangling a nice, fat […]

This week, your Geek Resistance Heroes are sending noble warriors back in time to 1984 and 1991, desperately trying to rescue Sarah and John Connor. We talk about where it all began for the Terminator films, and we start with the two offerings that arguable define the franchise. There’s Naked Arnie. There’s prop-based puns.
