Review: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

It's always tough to review a Ninja Theory game. They breathe a certain spark of life into their projects that practically no one studio can replicate. Yet, they insist on crafting relatively simplistic action sequences that detract from mu...

I'm hopeful Hellblade will be worth the wait

I'll have to be extra sure to wear headphones while playing Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. Ninja Theory is inching closer to its August 8 launch on PC and PlayStation 4, and this week brings a short, gripping scene from the mythological act...

I forgot to mention Tameem's f***hat in that Hellblade video

When I typed up that post about Hellblade's newest developer video, something jumped out at me: director Tameem Antoniades' hat. I made a mental note to mention it, but then ended up focusing on the motion capture. I've made a grave mistake...

Ninja Theory's facial tech for Hellblade is pretty rad

Although I trust Ninja Theory in terms of gameplay as far as I can throw them, they know how to make a pretty piece of art, that's for sure. This new developer video explains the process a bit for Hellblade, mostly in terms of how the faci...

Watch raw Hellblade gameplay while it lasts

This is basically what I played of Hellblade at gamescom in this excellent preview and interview I posted a couple days ago. This also isn't an official account and this footage is b-roll, typically meant to be edited into video previews a...

First hands-on with Ninja Theory's Hellblade

Ninja Theory has felt like a mercenary of late. Enslaved didn't sell as well as it should have (neither did Heavenly Sword), and so the last five years has been spent 1) making a mobile game for EA-owned publisher Chillingo, 2) trying to re...

Hellblade is the new game from Ninja Theory

Yay! A new game from Ninja Theory that's been straddled with one of the most unimaginative names I can remember. Hellblade? Sure, there's not been a game called that already? No release date so far but it will be a console exclusive on PS4...
