Relive the past with Agent 47 in this Hitman HD trailer

Hitman HD: Trilogy is nearly ready for release, so IO Interactive has whipped up a trailer that showcases footage from all three games, and a small teaser for the brand new Hitman: Sniper Challenge bonus. Whether you're a se...

New releases: Skulls of the Shogun will slay you photo
New releases: Skulls of the Shogun will slay you
by Fraser Brown

Monday has once again arrived, so you know the drill: it's another week of new releases. We're leaving January behind in a somewhat subdued fashion, but there's certain to be something that will catch your eye.

Skulls of the Shogun has caught my eye this week, though lamentably it's only dropping on platforms I have no access to. Maybe it's time for me to upgrade to Windows 8? Nah, probably not. Regardless, it looks like a fun strategy romp for those who like to chuckle while commanding undead minions.

Other than that, there's co-op shenanigans in the form of the medieval theme park scrapfest, Dungeonland; the IGE award-winning Antichamber drops on PC; Omerta: City of Gangsters opens its doors to prospective mobsters; you can shoot people in the face and make things go "boom!" in Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear; the 3DS gets some love thanks to Bloody Vampire and Witch's Cat; play the most hardcore sport of them all in Let's Fish! Hooked On; and more platforms get Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault. This and a whole lot more magically appears this week.

Anything floating your boat?

Check out this real life Hitman video featuring Agent 47

So I'm a huge fan of Timothy Olyphant (basically Justified above all else), but the Hitman movie left a lot to be desired. Enter this neat little fan video, directed and edited by Michael Shanks, that hi...

The DTOID Show's 400th Episode Spectacular! photo
The DTOID Show's 400th Episode Spectacular!
by Max Scoville


Here's today's Destructoid Show, which is the 400th episode. According to the folder we keep on the server, which also contains a bunch of E3 videos, so technically it's not the 400th episode. But we wore sombreros anyway. 

Metro: Last Light has a new trailer, and you can get the first game, Metro 2033 for free for a limited time. There's a Hitman HD Trilogy on the horizon, and SimCity continues to look awesome. Meanwhile, Capcom celebrates two 25th anniversaries at once with Street Fighter X Mega Man, and you can win a PS Vita copy of Street Fighter X Tekken. Find out how on the show!

Hitman: Absolution's death threat stunt goes very wrong

It seems controversy and Hitman: Absolution are destined are go hand-in-hand. Square Enix drew fire earlier this year for a trailer in which Agent 47 beat the crap out of fetishized nuns, and was criticized incredibly harshly...

There's some Adam Jensen in my Hitman: Absolution

Adam Jensen of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has great hair. Agent 47 of Hitman: Absolution has none. Still, that won't stop him from dressing up as Adam with some new DLC. He gets the Deus Ex Suit and the Deus Ex Zenith gun as ...

Review: Hitman Absolution photo
Review: Hitman Absolution
by Conrad Zimmerman

Six years seems like a long time to have to wait for a new Hitman installment, but I/O Interactive certainly kept themselves busy during that time. With a powerful engine under the hood (in the form of Glacier2), the baldest assassin of all-time is stepping out with a taut, exciting adventure that doesn't skimp on its depth of exploration.

Is Absolution the best Hitman yet? Maybe not, but it's definitely a contender.

Freddie Wong's vacation is a 'far cry' from the norm

With Far Cry 3 less than a month away, the freddiew team of Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch fuel the hype machine with an appropriate homage. A sunny, beach-side getaway in Belize is too trivial for ol' Mr. Wong. He needs a...
