Thief Debut Trailer Finally Comes Out Of The Shadows

A bunch of malarkey may have transpired today considering it’s the fools parade that is April Fool’s Day, yet Square Enix has decided to get a bit serious. No, badass undercover cop extraordinaire Wei Shen hasn’t returned in a Sleeping Dogs follow-up as we instead have our first “look” at the new Thief title.

Legacy of Kain Could Finally Be Coming Back [Rumor]

We may soon receive one of those rare occasions in which we’ll receive a sequel or at least a reboot of a video games series that deserves to make a triumphant return. For years there’s been a dedicated sect of gamers who wanted to see the Legacy of Kain series continue in any fashion, either through games focused on Kain or somehow further continue the Raziel series even though his journey seemingly came to a rather ironic and bittersweet ending.

Square Enix Expands Montreal Team + Opens New Studio (Interesting Hitman News Inside)

Things are going good for Square Enix ever since the company bought the remnants of Eidos back in 2009.  Unlike most mergers or major acquisitions, Square Enix didn’t cannibalize what was left of Eidos but instead decided to nurture the company and make it an integral part of the Western centric goals that Square Enix has.  With the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution being a success for both Square Enix and the team at Eidos Montreal, Square Enix has revealed their plans to strengthen the development team in Montreal as well as what the future holds for the team.

Thief 4 Storyboard Images Give Us A Small Look At The Game

Now that Deus Ex: Human Revolution has gone on to become a mega hit Eidos Montreal will be able to put their full efforts into Thief 4. Long in development and publicly announced to a degree, details on Thief 4 have remained as elusive as the titular character, with only minor glimpses or murmurs here and there.  Square Enix has been keeping Thief 4 in the shadows for now but we’re bound to get a proper reveal in the coming months, either at E3 or even earlier at an event like GDC.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Deus Ex: Human Revolution comes as close to deliverying on its campaign promises as any game has ever dared before. The story line is an epic web of conspiracies and lies interwoven with a question of humanity and what it means to each player. By the end of the game you'll have created your own individual Adam Jensen whose final choice may surprise even you. 

The Pros: 

+Brilliant sci-fi noir-esque story.

+Interesting and relatable characters.

+Plenty of replay value.

+Deep and expansive world with plenty to do and see.

+An almost unpressidented level of 'play how you want'.

The Cons: 

-The game does heavily favor stealth, if that's now how you play/wanted to play you can miss out on some of the side-quests/rewards of the game. Rating : 

Just over two years ago now I was lead into a private booth on the floor of E3 to catch my first glimpse of Human Revolution. The demo that I saw then would set an impossibly high bar that no game could ever match. The demo show cased gorgeous cinematics, stealth-oriented gameplay, ridiculous take-downs in the form (in single, double, and five-at-a-time varieties) combined with dialog from the development team; which wound up selling me with one quote: "You can play through the entire game without killing anyone."

A Blurry Screenshot of Thief 4 Emerges, But At Least It's Something

I may be excited for it, but amidst all the other games being released or announced, I kind of forgot that Square Enix was still making Thief 4.  Unlike other games whose development has about fifteen different layers of subterfuge to it, Thief 4 was indeed announced publicly to be in development, though not a single peep has been said about it.  The lack of immediate publicity and or details for Thief 4 can likely be stemmed from how Eidos Montreal is handling the project and as we all know they’re busy finishing up the possible GOTY candidate that is Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution in-game screens revealed

Earlier today we got an extended look at Deus Ex: Human Revolution via a sexy CG trailer.  Seeing a CG trailer is nice and all but in this day and age it’s all about the quality of the in-game graphics.  I was somewhat worried that the graphics of Deus Ex: Human Revolution would be a mess compared to the Square Enix produced CG trailers but I can breathe a sigh of relief as the game looks fine.

Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution E3 trailer

After being teased earlier this week, the new Deus Ex: Human Revolution trailer has been released and it’s rather awesome.  Heavily evoking vibes of Blade Runner, the almost four-minute trailer properly introduces us to the augmented mystery man from the previous trailer and the world he inhabits.
