Now that Thief is out, Eidos Montreal lays off 27 people

AAA development works, the large studio tells you. "Yes it is true we've let 27 people go today," its press release reads as you imagine it dabbing crocodile tears with a fan of c-notes. "Unfortunately it's something that ev...

PC Port Report: Thief photo
PC Port Report: Thief
by Alasdair Duncan

The Thief series began on the PC, and it's one of those games that old people like me say has its spiritual home there. So it's no surprise that the new Thief reboot/remake would come under scrutiny as to how well it performs on the platform where so many people enjoyed the first adventures of Garret. 

Whilst Chris Carter found the 2014 Thief solid but not exactly memorable, I think I've been having a bit more fun with the game, especially in the side missions where you can just pit your wits against the game. Although it's a great-looking game on a good PC, Thief isn't without its issues.

Nosgoth goes into closed beta today

Nosgoth is that free-to-play third-person shooter set in the Legacy of Kain universe. It's also that game that makes us wish there would be a new legit Legacy of Kain game every single time we have to talk about it. Anyway, y...

The last few times we've written about Murdered: Soul Suspect, the discussions centered around next gen ports. Well, that and the protagonist's unfortunate choice of head wear and other accoutrements. I mean, the fedora is somehow not the most egregious fashion choice. Wallet chain? 

But now I've gotten a chance to play and have a bunch of different things to complain about.

You can use the Konami code in Bravely Default

Once you've beaten Bravely Default, a secret movie will unlock that essentially serves as a bridge to the upcoming sequel -- Bravely Second. But apparently you don't need to complete the game to unlock it, as you can use the...

Cactuar with a mustache & a bunch of Theatrhythm videos

Theatrhythm was the first 3DS game I bought. I'm super excited for Curtain Call's 200 songs and whatever other additions it has. It's coming out in Japan in April. Hopefully we don't have to wait to much longer, or it's curtains for Square Enix.

DOOM 4 beta, Yokai Watch & Final Fantasy on PC photo
DOOM 4 beta, Yokai Watch & Final Fantasy on PC
by Max Scoville

Hey everybody, I’m back from Japan! And here’s your quasi-timely news update for the first two thirds of this week. Irrational Games closed, pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order gets you a beta for the new and technically unannounced DOOM game. Square Enix has trademarked “Shinra Company,” there’s a possibility of new Final Fantasy games on PC in the future, and in the meantime, Final Fantasies VII, VIII, and XIV are currently on sale.

Level 5 is getting me all hot and bothered by teasing a western release of Yokai Watch, which is selling like adorable ghostcakes in Japan. PC and PS4 owners will get Zombie Studios’ Daylight in April, and next month sees the release of Towerfall Ascension, the expanded version of the former Ouya exclusive.

Thief is almost here, and you can get a glimpse of a bit of gameplay (but not much) from its launch trailer above. As expected, there's tons of looting, sneaking, and swooping, compliments of the master thief and hero o...
