Unleash the technicolor yawn in this latest trailer for Styx: Master of Shadows

In the latest skills-focused trailer for Styx: Master of Shadows, Cyanide Studios sheds some light on the clone-barfing ability we mentioned back in July. Your clone is one of four Amber-fueled powers that you will...

Metal Gear Solid V pre-TGS tease: Quiet jumps from a helicopter, goes invisible
by Steven Hansen

...And that's it. Well, there are some angry raccoon eyes at the end, too. 

Wait. Clearly the soldiers see the helicopter above them. And Quiet doesn't even turn invisible until she's mid-fall. Why even turn invisible at that point? To show off? It's like a needlessly flashy version of the Ghost in the Shell intro, which I would link except that it has boobs and also I can only find the Ghost in the Shell 2.0 video with CGI that makes my eyes sad.

I hope I have GitS on DVD somewhere because I really want to watch it now.

But I did just notice the handcuffs so maybe she was being carted away from Mother Base for some reason and then decided to show how cool she was when the helicopter is in the air? Who knows. I want this game

Styx: Master of Shadows apes Ubisoft with 'Assassin's Green' trailer

Styx: Master of Shadows is described as an "infiltration game," and it's coming next month from developer Cyanide Studios. It'll hit the PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms, and promises expansive worlds and stealth gameplay. You can check out the above video to get a look for yourself at some of the gruesome deaths you'll be able to enact. The game is being released as a downloadable-only title.

Review: CounterSpy photo
Review: CounterSpy
by Steven Hansen

CounterSpy's stylized Cold War re-imagining is on point. It looks good, with its spindly spy running, rolling, and leaping like a jumping spider. It sounds good, with its jazzy soundtrack that reminds of James Bond

Unfortunately, the rest of it feels half-baked.

Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.

Gunpoint designer Tom Francis has made some good progress on Heat Signature

Last time we saw a bit of Heat Signature, it was essentially just a proof of concept. The thruster physics and heat detection was functional, but the procedural generation of ships was a little wonky and there were no clear ...

Barf a clone into existence in Styx: Master of Shadows

To dye for: Invisible Inc. is my kind of strategy-stealth game photo
To dye for: Invisible Inc. is my kind of strategy-stealth game
by Steven Hansen

A chasm in stealth games tends to be player skill and the supposed skills of super sleuth avatars. You're often eased into the situation, your lack of skill assumed, or you just fumble your way through -- especially with the recent trend of stealth-optional games -- feeling like Mr. Magoo. Or you're good at stealth games. It's one of the reason's they can hold up to replays. Coming back with mechanical knowledge and slinking through areas like the pro you're meant to be is exhilarating. 

Invisible, Inc. is meant to be replayed, but that familiarity and advance knowledge is not where you get your sense of empowerment, as everything is procedurally generated and, thus, different each time. 

Klei's founder Jamie Cheng sat down with me and showed me how "active stealth, by moving and doing rather than waiting," is a great fit for a turn-based system.

Twin Souls, a Kickstarter for a Tenchu inspired game is pretty rad

I've played what amounts to hundreds of hours of Tenchu back in the PlayStation era -- mostly the first two games, and that wonderful, wonderful level editor. So when anything advertises itself as inspired by the franch...

Video: Metal Gear Solid's trademark weirdness returns in The Phantom Pain
by Jordan Devore

Don't send a sheep back to Mother Base with the Fulton recovery system during a sandstorm -- that's my main takeaway from this Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain impressions video.

Max got to see the same extended presentation that Steven wrote about yesterday and if this game can come together into a cohesive whole, Kojima's going to have some real happy fans.

For now, I can't stop watching that trailer. Must've seen it six or seven times by now.
