You heard it! The sequel to the awesome Hotline Miami, the game I wrote my first review, and first blog article, on this blog is coming out! I’m very excited!
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong number takes place just after the events of the previous game, this time there are new masks such as the Swan that allows you to play two characters at the same time, one with a chainsaw, and one with an automatic machine gun, but you can’t change weapons. There’s a Zebra mask that allows you to do rolls that dodge bullets, and you can wear Biker’s old helmet and imitate him, cutting through enemies with a huge cleaver.
Are you excited about this game like I am!? Can’t wait to try out the new mask!? Time to meet the makers of the mask!? Tell me in the comments below

But when this game got into the hands of Australia’s Classification Board, that’s run by their government, they classified it as refused yesterday. Meaning that Hotline Miami 2 might not see the light of day in the land down under.

It’s infused with drugs and sex, which you don’t see, but the violence is clearly on display. Mitchell Dyer from IGN (I used to know him from NerdBlurb) pretty much explains that not an awful lot has changed from the winning formula of the previous game. But what he has noticed is that he’s more shocked about this game than the previous instalment. Maybe this will be something I discover when I get my chance to play this game. But I will admit that the new Swan mask duo characters look pretty damn cool! Continue reading →
