“For Honor” Review: Medieval Multiplayer Mayhem

Last weekend I played the new video game For Honor pretty obsessively. After playing a demo at PlayStation Experience and the beta a few weeks ago, I enjoyed the combat but found it really challenging too.

That’s why, in this second post about my favorite quests in video games, I’m featuring one of these stories. (*Quest spoilers to follow!)
