Don't expect IO Interactive to try Kane & Lynch again

The two Kane & Lynch games were, on paper, exciting propects. The first, Dead Men, was intended to be a pulse-pounding, squad-based heist thriller, similar to films such as Heat, but was a fumbling, awkward game. The 2010 sequel, Dog Da...

Review: Shooter

Shooters seem simple. You step into the shoes of your typical tough guy space-marine or mercenary and empty clip after clip into the faces of Nazis, or aliens, or alien-Nazis from the vaguely disembodied gun bobbing up and down in front of ...

Enslaved sells 460,000, Kane & Lynch 2 breaks a million

Am I the only one who finds this just a little freakin' insane? Enslaved: Odyssey to the West failed to even sell half a million copies, while the absolutely dreadful Kane & Lynch 2 -- with its half-finished campaign, crappy multiplayer...

Eidos: 'Artistic' Kane & Lynch not ready to die yet

Has critical and commercial failure spelled the end for the Kane & Lynch series? According to Eidos president Ian Livingstone, it hasn't. He believes that the characters of Kane and Lynch are just too good to kill off, and we have not s...

IO: Some reviewers didn't 'get' Kane & Lynch 2

It would appear that "you didn't get it" has officially become the popular way of developers to escape acknowledging criticism of their games. While talking about Kane & Lynch 2, IO Interactive has joined the ranks of Silicon ...

The Kane & Lynch movie needs a new director

To me, Kane & Lynch seems like an ideal candidate for the whole game-to-movie conversion process. You strip out the technical and mechanical issues, and hopefully, hopefully, you have an interesting story. Jamie Foxx and Bruce Willis ar...

Kane & Lynch 2 DLC already on the way

If you play Kane & Lynch 2 and feel that there's not enough content with its five-hour story mode and limited multiplayer maps, then don't worry. IO Interactive was busy preparing downloadable content instead of finishing development of...

Review: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men was one of the most notorious games of this generation. Famously bad, the game made headlines after a GameSpot reviewer gave it a low score and ended up fired because, allegedly, it had upset Eidos and the site's ...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days gets a launch trailer

While this launch trailer is all CG, it captures what the game is perfectly. A gritty f*cked up shooter starring two anti-heroes that don't give a damn. We've seen the game a ton already here at Destructoid -- from the single-player to the...

Kane & Lynch 2 gets yet another trailer

I'll say one thing for Square Enix and Eidos, they've not been shy on the trailer front. Here is another video for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, this one centered around Marcus Kane, the embittered ex-mercenary who decided to travel to Sha...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days trailer and screens

Here's a brand new trailer and a batch of fresh screenshots for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, otherwise known as pretty much the only retail game in August that I'm looking forward to. The latest trailer is pretty mental, with lots of viol...

A quick glimpse at the Kane & Lynch comic book

We previously told you that a Kane & Lynch comic book was on the way. All well and good, especially considering the flawed-but-interesting nature of K&L, but now we have something even better: a couple of pages from the debut issue,...

Jimpressions: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days demo

I'm one of the most forgiving writers you'll find on the subject of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. No, it wasn't a good game, packed full of balancing and technical problems, but its commitment to miserable protagonists and unconventional game...
