About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


18. 'The Order: 1886' (PS4)

The Order: 1886 re-writes history by introducing a vision of Victorian-Era London where myths and technology co-exist. As a member of an elite order of knights, join a centuries-old war that determines the course of history.

Redmond Carolipio: Sometimes I don't want to explore. Sometimes I just want to kill shit, and this game offers me the chance to do that in stylish glory. With all the open-world and existential stuff on the horizon, it's always good to have a straight-up action game. I find the steampunk medieval vision of London endearing, and the game's action atmosphere calls up a mix of "Van Helsing," "Underworld" and a little of RDJ's "Sherlock Holmes." Toss in the fact that the game looks stunning, and I'm expecting a good time.

Rhi "StormyDawn" Mitera: The PS4 is finally getting some awesome exclusives. The Order: 1886 has a distinct story approach that I don't think I've ever seen in a video game: quasi-steampunk third-person shooter with overtones of King Arthur mythology. The only place where this game falls short is being single-player. If it had been 4fourplayer co-op instead (a la Left 4 Dead), I think this could've been the best game coming out in 2015.
