Deadbolt review

Review: Deadbolt

As someone who was way into Risk of Rain, a tough side-scrolling shooter that only grew tougher as time ticked by, I should have believed its designers when they called their next game "extremely challenging." But after cl...   read

Hitman review

Review: Hitman

Hitman is the funniest game I've played in a while. IO Interfactive's subtitle-free reboot of its long-running assassination franchise is, mostly, side-stepping cinematics full of S&M nuns and returning to the realm of sl...   read

Hitman's launch trailer is flashy, shows off variety of scenarios

Square Enix is keen to show off what will likely be the last trailer for Hitman until launch, and it does the trick. The sheer amount of different mission parameters are staggering, which won't all arrive at once due to its episodic mo...

These new Styx: Shards of Darkness screenshots sure are colourful

Styx: Master of Shadows was a really great, pure stealth game. Not only that, but as a prequel to Of Orcs and Men it did an excellent job of fleshing out Styx’s character with a surprisingly interesting story. If these new screenshots...

Despite wonkiness, Hitman runs alright on PC
