Hoodwink  



Clicking with Hoodwink


5:00 PM on 07.07.2012



What's with all these adventure games cropping up all over the place? It's almost like people still love these games or something. Well, until somebody warns the developers I shall keep enjoying them. The latest potential avenue for my enjoyment is an intriguing title called Hookwinka delicious, almost edible, looking cell-shaded adventure game from E-One Studio.

Apparently it harkens back to the days of yore, when adventure games were played from Lands End to John O'Groats (or Florida to Maine if you'd rather). Pointing and clicking is promised, along with tough puzzles and weird characters. So there's this thief, right? And he's in love with a dame, but a mean ol' corporation is gettin' all up in his business. There are also chocolate loving robots. It's certainly piqued my interest. It's out now exclusively for PC, and is unfortunately exclusive to Origin.

Batman comic will provide the Arkham Knight's origin story

If the headline sounded like "Arkham Origins," don't be frightened. Rocksteady is back and WB can't hurt you any more. Except with delays into late June. But that's a "it's for your own good" hurt, like forcing you to eat you...more
