We have been looking forward to playing Monaco: What's Yours is Mine from the comfort of our own homes for years now. The cooperative stealth-action game has taken some big awards in that time, including the 2010 Independent... more
Last year, a really slick-looking, stealth-based platformer called Stealth Bastard completely passed under our noses. Developed by Curve Studios, which was also responsible for Explodemon! and Fluidity, this freeware title i... more

Some new screens for Dishonored have arrived, and they're about as spooky as the last ones, as the game's cultural elite continue to done masks fashioned out of nightmares. Who told that lady the "human moth" look was in this... more
Even though some other games piqued my interest at this year’s E3 (*cough* Watch Dogs), I must shamelessly admit that I was ultimately excited about Assassin’s Creed III more than anything. I even whimpered and sq... more
