Hotline Miami 2's level editor is ready at last

The level editor for Hotline Miami 2 is no longer in beta, and to celebrate, I think a Carpenter Brut playlist is in order. If it seems like this rollout has taken its sweet time, I agree -- the game is over a year old and, initially, I tho...   read

Ruiner is a pretty slick cyberpunk shooter

There's a slew of great concepts this year at PAX East and within Devolver Digital's booth we have Ruiner, a cyberpunk action-packed shooter. It stood out to me specifically as some kind of Blade Runner and Drive movie crossover with a Hotl...   read

We'll soon be able to make tiny levels in Hotline Miami 2

One of the common complaints for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is its large levels. Were they too large? I didn't mind them. Sure, it felt bad to die from the last guy on the floor after pulling off a miraculous string of executions, but th...   read

Lots of games are morally bankrupt, we get it

With Hotline Miami 2 recently released, I realized I am really, really tired of games that belong in its genre. When I say "genre," I refer not to "action games" or "indie games" or even "violent games," but a subtler, more hypocritical cla...   read

I'm going to play the Hotline Miami 2 soundtrack on repeat until I'm utterly sick of it

If there's one thing we can all agree upon re: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, it's that Dennaton Games did an exceptional job matching songs with the tone and feel of specific levels. This series wouldn't be what it is -- a brutal, gory, a...   read

There's a fun little Easter egg at the end of Hotline Miami 2
