Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's 101 trailer is strangely on the nose

Game trailers often apply one of two methods: the cinematic/narrative option teases some story to hope that would-be players become invested in the events happening in this make-believe world, and gameplay trailers attempt to entice people ...

 
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Pretty boy Steven Hansen enjoyed  our Xbox One Game of the Year Rise of the Tomb Raider, saying that it was "perfunctory Hollywood boilerplate, down to the set up for the sequel, but competently done." I agree with ...   read

Eidos is holding Deus Ex: Mankind Divided back until August

Eidos Montreal has pushed the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to August 23, 2016. A fairly substantial delay, considering the game was previously slated for February (and, heh, remember that canned pre-order program that would have let ...

Adam Jensen is brutal in this Deus Ex trailer

Between the ceiling full of mechanical arms and that man with the golden mask, there's a lot to like in this trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. But as someone who adored Painkiller's stake gun, one of the all-time greats in video game we...

Deus Ex: Human Revolution likely sneaking to Xbox One's backward compatibility

Square Enix and Eidos Montreal are concentrated on the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided early next year, but that doesn't preclude it from turning its attention to games of the past. With Microsoft's E3 reveal of Xbox One backward c...

 
Deus Ex
After watching twenty or so minutes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, I sat down with executive narrative director Mary DeMerle. We spoke about the streamlined gameplay, Human Revolution's flaws, and their plans for tackling sensitive issues in a critical medium.   read

25 minutes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gameplay

There's so much to talk about in the first minute or two alone. Going in on mechanical Apartheid. Sexy leather pants. Jensen's spiky ass designer facial hair (and skull hair). The fucking Illuminati!!! A game that isn't piss yellow. Higher...

 
Deus Ex
There's been a negative reaction online to Eidos Montreal's use of the racially-charged term "mechanical Apartheid" in its promotion of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Speaking with Destructoid today, we asked the title's Exec...   read

This is Eidos' new engine for Deus Ex

You're looking at Eidos Montréal's new engine for current-gen consoles and PC, the Dawn Engine. The studio says it "will form the cornerstone" for future core games in the Deus Ex franchise and "any other projects that will help brin...

 
Hitman
Square hasn’t been afraid to use the Hitman IP in fun and creative ways. Hitman GO was a critical success for doing something unique, and while Hitman Sniper isn’t on that same scale, it is still at least a ton of fun.   read

Turn-based Hitman GO comes to iOS next week

Square Enix Montréal's turn-based strategy title Hitman GO looks like a decent excursion while we wait for the next major franchise installment from IO Interactive. It's coming real soon -- first to iOS devices on April 17, followed ...

Square Enix trademarks Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

The folks behind Human Revolution are working on a new Deus Ex for current-generation consoles and PC. Could its title be Deus Ex: Mankind Divided? Square Enix trademarked the phrase in the United Kingdom, reports CVG. It sure seems themati...

Square Enix brings Deux Ex: The Fall to Steam early

As of today, Deus Ex: The Fall is now on Steam following its mobile release last year. Players command former British SAS mercenary Ben Saxon as he tracks down a drug conspiracy in 2027. Once you get over the fact that the protagonist is J...

Now that Thief is out, Eidos Montreal lays off 27 people

AAA development works, the large studio tells you. "Yes it is true we've let 27 people go today," its press release reads as you imagine it dabbing crocodile tears with a fan of c-notes. "Unfortunately it's something that every major studi...

 
Thief PC Port
The Thief series began on the PC, and it's one of those games that old people like me say has its spiritual home there. So it's no surprise that the new Thief reboot/remake would come under scrutiny as to how well it performs...   read

Review: Thief

The original Thief was one of my favorite PC games of all time. It was unique in that it completely focused on stealth -- a mechanic that wasn't used often at the time outside of a few select games like the original...   read

Watch what Thief is all about in this new launch trailer

Thief is almost here, and you can get a glimpse of a bit of gameplay (but not much) from its launch trailer above. As expected, there's tons of looting, sneaking, and swooping, compliments of the master thief and hero of the story, Ga...

Steal everything in sight in this Thief gameplay video

There doesn't seem to be any doubt about it, Thief will certainly live up to its namesake. In this 17-minute video that shows the game's first mission, Garrett gets his klepto on and does his best magpie impression, as he pockets ever...

New Thief video teaches how to steal in style

The title of this Thief video calls it a trailer, but I'd be hard-pressed to classify it as such. Not many trailers run six minutes, but whatever this is, it remains interesting the whole time. I guess badass thievery and murder have ...

Let's look at the customization options for Thief on PS4

We already knew that the upcoming reboot of Thief was going to have lots of customization on PC, but it's good to see the PlayStation 4 (and presumably all console versions) will have those options too. From the start of the game you can s...

Deus Ex: The Fall is now on sale for a buck

That Deus Ex mobile game The Fall is now $0.99 on iTunes, which is a decent price to check it out at. It basically pares down the Human Revolution experience into a mobile offering, but it still has that "stealth, wits, or br...

New Thief trailer introduces us to the Queen of Beggars

As one of the first big titles coming out in 2014, it's no surprise to see another trailer for Thief arrive on our doorsteps. This time we're being introduced to the secretive Queen of Beggars as she narrates the woe of The City. It's a gr...

New Thief trailer shows the death of Garrett's apprentice

Anyone who played the old Thief games might remember Garrett taking on a young apprentice. Apparently, Eidos Montreal doesn't want to have a young thief following him around, because during VGX they released a trailer for the new Thief, wh...

The UI and difficulty levels in Thief are moddable

Some of the worries about the new Thief title from Eidos Montreal come from how a studio can make a big-budget stealth game that will appeal to a mass audience. Hardcore fans of the series worry that the game will watered down but in a new ...

Thief dropping QTEs because everyone hated them

Feast your eyes on these new Thief screenshots
