Hitman Footage Shows Off Very Little Man Hitting

Since an overall sense of disappointment with Hitman: Absolution, (a game I'll be honest, I actually quite liked) fans have been pretty vocal about what they wanted from the next iteration of the Hitman franchise. Large, living-world levels, a freedom to choose your approach and a selection of ways in which to bring about your targets departure. In short, they wanted another Hitman: Blood Money.

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms IP Rights Return to Developers

Both Kevin and myself played Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms (official Facebook page) last year, and Kevin was somewhat impressed by the action-RPG. The trouble is, publishers bitComposer Entertainment fell into insolvency soon after Shadows was released. In a welcome turn of events, developers Games Farm, have acquired the distribution and publishing rights to the game and have grand plans for the future.

Train Valley Coming September 16

A good train management game can be a thing of excellence, just think back to the Railroad Tycoon series and bask the glow of glorious train timetabling and management. It is a genre which I've largely lost track of in recent time, but the upcoming full release of Train Valley on September 16th could change that.

Onto the Land – A GTA V Wildlife Documentary

Being one of the most trend-setting gamers around, I've always got my eye out for the newest and most unknown titles. This month I've been trying out something called Grand Theft Auto 5. For those of you that don't know, Grand Theft Auto 5 is an impressive open world game in which you travel the fictional state of San Andreas with camera-phone in hand, taking pictures of the fascinating wildlife and interesting scenery. Occasionally you'll run into mostly unpleasant characters who will try to encourage you to perform rather unpleasant and often unlawful acts, but otherwise you're free to explore the land and oceans in relative peace.

Editor’s Blog – Adventures with Windows 10 (Part One)

As everyone knows by now, Microsoft have released Windows 10 to an expectant public, largely eager for a new system to wipe away the horrors of Windows 8. It also faces the daunting challenge of convincing Windows 7 users that upgrading is worth their time. For me, the chance to upgrade my devices to Windows 10 gave me cause to do some small hardware tweaking. This is Part One of my Adventures with Windows 10.

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition – Shown off in New Trailer

Larian Studios have spent their development career working on the Divinity series, a history which has seen them dive into the traditional RPG-fair with Divinity II: Ego Draconis and RTS/political-sim hybrid Divinity: Dragon Commander. Their true success however came with Divinity: Original Sin (see my Verdict), an RPG with a highly interactive world to explore with some hardcore turn-based combat thrown in for good measure. It was a great game, and is set to become even better with an Enhanced Edition.

Clearing The Backlog – The Crew

Take a pinch of the multitudinous number of activities found in Burnout Paradise, a slice of story (a rarity for driving games) like Driver: San Francisco and a dollop of open-world antics from Fuel. Mix those elements all together and finish off with a topping of Test Drive Unlimited and classic Ubisoft open-world traits and you are left with The Crew.
