If you were a pensioner, and we said "1960s San Francisco" to you, you'd probably roll your eyes, or else go all misty-eyed and complain that you just can't get decent LSD anymore. It depends what kind of pensioner you are, really. As it happens, this is the exact setting for Hei$t, the Hollywood-inspired robbery sim from developer inXile - though the closest you'll get to any peace-and-love daisy-age nonsense here is driving your getaway car through a crowd full of hippies.
It's been a while
As we watched the 30% complete version of Heist, Maxx Kaufman, of developers InExile, wanted us to "imagine it looking awesome all the time."
You can see why. At the moment, this safe-cracking, '60s-set, free-roamer looks a bit basic. The banks are blank, the robbers struggle with scenery and the chatter is stilted. But if the team can polish the graphics as well as they generate ideas, this will be one to
Remember the Arkedo series on Xbox Live Indie games? Possibly not. Well, Sega bought the promising studio and this is their first game together. It's about an undead bunny who goes around disemboweling cartoon monsters. Not your typical platformer, then, but that's exactly why it's likely to stand out from the crowd.
By now, Hellboy fans have had time to wash the filthy taste of 2004's PSone disaster Hellboy: Asylum Seeker out of their mouths. Don't know what we're talking about? Let's keep it that way - the big red paranormal investigator is lumbering back onto the videogame scene in the fall, and this time it looks like he's coming correct.
We've stomped through two levels of Hellboy's upcoming brawler (just titled Hellboy for now), and although the game is still in really early form, it's already
Imagine being a fighter pilot in World War II. It was – to coin the biggest understatement this side of Wall Street bosses telling traders they might need to have a few quiet nights in – daunting. Your plane is made of plywood, you can’t fly upside down too long for fear of stalling the engine and there’s every chance some German pilot will have perforated your parachute just prior to your requiring it.
Connor, Duncan and now Owen MacLeod. Is it us or is this two MacLeod’s too many? Well not according to Eidos, as the revealing of Highlander illustrates. Apparently, there’s a lot of material left to mine from a franchise that has struggled to relive the appeal of the 1986 Lambert live-forever-slasher. We even miss the mullet. The game is being scripted by David Abramovitz, who has worked on the Highlander TV show, so expect plenty
Following a half-decade in hiding, our favorite hired gun has finally emerged from the shadows again. But like his survival-savvy Square Enix stablemate Lara Croft, Agent 47 now seems to be on the defensive. During our E3 demo, which primarily took place in a Chicago library after business hours, the bar-coded badass - sporting his signature shorn scalp and sharp suit - wasn’t plotting a...
Our friends at Official Xbox Magazine ask Hitman: Absolution's developers the tough but necessary questions. What's new? What's different? And what's the best way to murder someone: a fire axe to the forehead or a syringe to the jugular? Get all the answers to these and more...
One of two things is happening here. Either IO Interactive are trolling us, and are getting ready to properly reveal the current-gen Hitman game you're hoping for at a later date (possible, and I’ll explain why over the jump), or Absolution really does lack a lot of what made us love the series in the first place.
Click on. Details await...
Hitman: Absolution pre-order customers are getting more than the average bonus when they throw down their hard-earned cash at GameStop - they're getting Hitman: Sniper Challenge, a combination demo/downloadable game that unlocks in-game rewards for the actual title. We've played through it a few times, and come out with some thoughts...
