Mafia III studio suffers significant layoffs

Hangar 13, the developer behind 2016's Mafia III, was hit with a round of layoffs today. It's unclear how many of the Novato, California-based studio's employees were let go; LinkedIn estimates the company's size to be around 150 employees ...


The original Mafia is once again available digitally

Now, you might not be itching to play 2002's Mafia right this second. I'm definitely not! But, if and when that time ever does arrive, you'll be thankful to have quick and easy access to this defining open-world action-adventure title. It's...


Mafia III gets its first DLC nearly six months after launch

Mafia III didn't hit a lot of the right notes for a lot of people, but if you're still into the idea of playing past the slog of a campaign, there's some DLC in the pipeline. The first of three packs is actually available today, and wi...


Brazzers now offers Let's Plays featuring famous pornstars

Much as how adult entertainment giant Playboy embraced gaming with its well written editorials and Gamer Next Door series, Brazzers hopes to do the same with their own line of Let's Plays. On their safe-for-work YouTube channel Trendzz (ha)...


Mafia III breaks 2K records, ships 4.5 million in a week

The Washington Post is reporting that Mafia III has shipped 4.5 million copies in its first week on sale. This breaks records set by previous 2K games like Borderlands, BioShock, and NBA 2K. This also makes Mafia III the fastest-selling gam...


Review: Mafia III

As I played Mafia III, I found myself thinking more and more about Assassin's Creed. Not the Assassin's Creed of today -- a series overrun with options and bloat -- but the original game. The trigger for my recollection is because Mafi...


Review in Progress: Mafia III

Mafia III begins with protagonist Lincoln Clay playing a part in a grand heist. It's not something we haven't seen before in video games, but it still feels kind of unexpected. This game's predecessor, Mafia II, spent far too much time...


Mafia III is locked to 30fps on PC (Update)

[Update: A representative from 2K sent along the following message:  "We currently have a patch running here at the studio that includes 30, 60, and unlimited frames-per-second options in the video menu, among other improvements f...


Last chance on Mafia III deals before Friday's release

Step back into 1968 New Orleans this Friday if you're a fan of the Mafia franchise. For everyone else, you've now been informed that the third installment is being released to all platforms on October 7. The open-world title tends to get ea...


Fuck up the KKK in Mafia 3

A lot of games have let us dispense of nazis with hot-leaded-justice, but what about groups that have since perpetuated the Nazi's occult-lunacy-derived racial superiority? Sure, the KKK existed before the Nazis, but Mafia 3 is set in 1968...


Mafia III destroys more rackets than John McEnroe

Further proof positive that I am bad at this job. That headline is an extremely unclickable headline. John McEnroe references in 2016? Like, who's going to understand that? I cater to the four percent of people who understand both crime sy...


Mafia III rhymes with DLC, baby!

Mafia III has a season pass, because of course it does. The price for standalone purchase is $30, while paying $20 more will net you the digital deluxe edition that includes the season pass. If you opt to do each add-on separately, you'll s...

Mafia III protagonist's life has been anything but a cakewalk

We know that Mafia III's Lincoln Clay hasn't had it easy. He's a black man in the American south during the 1960s (a struggle that developer Hangar 13 hopes to do justice with its New Bordeaux setting). He's also a Vietnam veteran. Oh yeah...

Mafia III knows what the word 'family' means

When you think of the mafia, taking care of business comes to mind. You know, empire building by way of putting cement galoshes on guys and dumping them into the river. Do that enough times and you're feared and respected. Mafia III&n...
