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.

Urine luck: Basso returns to Thief in first Stories from the City trailer

I don’t know, Thief. I just don’t know. You seem so eager to please, with your little references to guys from the original series (this new ‘Stories from the City’ trailer is narrated by a new version of Basso the Boxman) and a clunky attempt to acknowledge its unique linguistic quirks (Garrett is now known as “Taffer” to some, which means his nickname is a term of abuse.)

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Adventurer’s Log 1

I still don’t have a goddamn chocobo.
Part of this is doubtless down to the fact that I’ve had to play several other games to completion, so my Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn time has been limited.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Tim’s Early Access Experience
