The last quarter of the year is often stacked with release dates and there are many reasons for this, such as the holiday rush for consumers or the end of the fiscal year for publishers—hence the need to release big titles. Despite this being a yearly occurence, 2018's last four months still looks especially wallet-destroying in particular. At a low estimate of P2,100 per game, we're already sitting at P35,000 to cop everything we want to play during the ber months! Not to mention where to find the time to play all these!

Hitman 2 - November 13
Thankfully, there's a bit of a gap after the previous game (which you will definitely need to finish it) but things get intense again in mid-November. Hitman 2 kicks things off.
