Oh good! Twin Souls, that Tenchu-inspired undead-assassin game, still exists. It's now known as Aragami, which should help it stand out better, and the footage in this re-reveal trailer is more exciting than what I remember of Lince Works'...   read

I want to vacay in Hitman's Sapienza

Despite my confident, casual unholstering of the word "vacay," I've never actually taken a vacation, on account of all the poverty. Still, feels good to dream, and Hitman's take on Italy looks downright idyllic. I mean, not the weird bit wi...   read

Trine developer's new game, Shadwen, sneaks onto PC and PS4 in May

Shadwen is a stealth game that is actually a stealth game. There's no other option. It doesn't subscribe to the Assassin's Creed-style mindset of "Now you've made a mess of things, time to clean it up." If the player is seen even...   read

Would you rather kill Gary Busey or Gary Cole?

Well, Hitman is no stranger to out-there advertising strategies. At least this one doesn't allude to a heavy flow. Also, preemptive joke reminder: Gary Coleman died in 2010.   read
