Described as a brutal stealth-action game inspired by titles like Syndicate and Grand Theft Auto, Flat Earth's Metrocide has me very, very interested. With a visual style that appears right at home in Devolver Digital's stable of hardcore neo-retro titles, this top-down murder simulator looks like it just might have what it takes to stand alongside games like Hotline Miami.
Metrocide invites us to play as contract killer T.J. Trench in a dystopian cityscape where police drones patrol the skies, gangs roam the streets, and heavily armed citizens all lie in wait, ready to leave you as fodder for the cleaning droids. Check out the official trailer above.
This is currently slated for a PC and Mac release in the second half of 2014.

Archelon Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score?

Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too. OverlordZetta Huh.

Hype!Avoclefo Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?Niero Desu Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.OrochiLeona Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?Nathan D After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now. Pixie The Fairy When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.
