There was much lamenting (not least from myself) when the teaser for Deus Ex: The Fall turned out to hyping a bloody iOS game, but that title does now appear as if it’ll get a PC release too.

IO gives details on next Hitman game, actually sounds good

In an open letter to the community, IO Interactive have offered some details of the next game in the Hitman series – being developed for PC and “next-gen consoles”, which I’m guessing means “current-gen consoles”, since they’re out – and it actually sounds rather good.
