This gameplay trailer for Thief ticks all the right boxes

There's a fairly short list of things that I'd want to see in a new Thief game: water arrows, sneaking past guards, shiny trinkets ripe for the plunder, some casual pickpocketing, and a city shrouded in a seemingly endless n...

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut out on Oct. 22

We've already learned of the next stage in the Deus Ex franchise but Eidos Montreal isn't forgetting about Human Revolution. The Director's cut of the game will hit current consoles and PC on October 22 in North America and ...

That Deus Ex: Universe trademark? It's not what it might've sounded like. Eidos Montreal has lifted the lid on its future plans for the franchise, which include multiple games for PC/consoles as well as mobile titles, books, and graphic novels -- that's what Universe is all about.

"The concept behind Deus Ex: Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games," writes studio head David Anfossi. "It's a commitment on our part to deliver meaningful content that expands the franchise on a regular basis and to deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games, creating a more immersive and richer experience than ever before."

An important first step is a new core game from the team behind Human Revolution. Announced for next-generation consoles and PC, the title is currently in production and you can see the first concept art above. We actually asked for this! "[The artwork] shows trans-humanism segregation, which is a backdrop to our vision for the next Deus Ex," says Anfossi.

"It represents a "ghetto-city' voluntarily built in order to separate the classes. The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex."

The Bank Heist is your Thief pre-order DLC

The thing that surprised me about the trailer above is not that there's going to be pre-order DLC for Eidos Montreal's upcoming Thief title but that the game is set for a February 25, 2014 release. I thought I had being payi...

We've been talking a lot about some big AAA games the past few days, so what's one more to close out the week?

Thief is looking mighty fine based on our hands-on time, and we're going to have wait until next year before we can steal whatever we want. Thief will be out on February 25, 2014 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

In the mean time, here's a brand new cinematic trailer that showcases what's going on in the overall world while you're busy stealing things. The rich are taking everything from themselves, while the poor struggle to survive.

Review: Deus Ex: The Fall photo
Review: Deus Ex: The Fall
by Chris Carter

After a pretty tantalizing teaser, Square Enix was all set to announce the anticipated follow-up to the successful Deus Ex Human Revolution -- and much to the ire of fans, it ended up being a mobile exclusive.

It's not all bad news though, as Deus Ex: The Fall actually works pretty well considering the platform, and offers up a lighter, more portable version of Human Revolution. That said, it would have been a much better experience on a dedicated portable -- or at the very least, anything offering tactile controls.

Thief confirmed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

This Thief demo sees the return of a trusty tool

Thief has been getting a lot of well-deserved buzz since its announcement, not the least of which surrounds its new Focus mechanic. Is it game-breaking, or harmlessly non-intrusive? Well, I'm here to to tell you none of that...

Thief is going to be an exhilarating game

We've already covered Thief and the latest demo we saw was largely the same: go in someone's house and steal their most precious item. Steven Hansen broke down a lot of the mechanics already, so I just wanted to touch on how the actual game feels playing it. Which is that it feels great -- exhilarating, in fact.

The atmosphere that developer Eidos-Montreal has created really is thrilling. You quickly find yourself so engrossed into thinking you're the world's greatest thief, and because of that I tried my hardest to be as sneaky as possible. Any time I would get caught I felt defeated, to the point I wanted to restart all over again.

Granted, you don't have to start over, and the actual combat is really cool. It's more that I wanted to try all over again to prove I can be the greatest thief there ever was.

What happens when 70 limousines race in Just Cause 2 photo
What happens when 70 limousines race in Just Cause 2
by Jordan Devore

A few days ago, I saw that the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod was going to do another weekend test run. Having so far failed to participate in a single one of these events, including this latest one -- screw my short-term memory -- the video above cheered me up. 

How could a limousine race of this absurd size set to music from PaRappa the Rapper not have such an effect? I'm not made of stone. Upon further investigation, it turns out that the mod organizers are keeping it up for the rest of this week. Check it out if you're interested in open-world multiplayer shenanigans along these lines.
