The Week In Games: The Baba Yaga Is Almost Here...

John Wick Hex is releasing this week, bringing the Baba Yaga his own video game. It looks cool and I’m excited to play it. I hope there’s a pencil in the game I can use to kill everyone. That feels like a perfect Easter egg to include.

I didn’t see the first John Wick film until a few months before the second film was released. I initially thought that the film was about candles or something like that. I’m very stupid. I should have Googled it. Once I did watch it, I was very surprised by just how good it was. It didn’t include any candles, but it did include Keanu Reeves. I hear that dude is breathtaking.

Beyond John Wick Hex, a bunch of other games are releasing next week including, if you look hard enough, a new Vita game. It is 2019, nearly 2020, and the Vita is getting new games. There’s also a new side-scrolling Yooka-Laylee game, which looks good. And a new entry in the Trine series with Trine 4. Plus the old Trine games are coming to PS4, Xbox One and Switch in one giant collection. Very convenient!
