Hitman is saved, claim German games site - Io retain rights, season two is still comingHitman is saved, claim German games site - Io retain rights, season two is still coming

Selling Hitman with IO is the only way to get any value from it what-so-ever, given the only other things that can be attributed to it are Kane & Lynch & Mini Ninjas...Reply

To befair the first Kane & Lynch was a pretty good co-op game.

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is a handsome remaster, but it's no substitute for a sequelBulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is a handsome remaster, but it's no substitute for a sequel

Bollocks. The only reason most people want this is because the original licensing agreements are a quagmire and as a result, the original isn't likely to be updated to make it backwards compatible for consoles or strip out Games for Windows: Live from the PC version.

Nobody really cares for the stuff Gearbox are adding - they just want a working game again. That Pitchford shot down anything like a loyalty discount for existing PC owners using the existing licensing deal as an excuse basically sealed the deal in most eyes - £10 on sale at best.

Heck, it's not like 'but you won't get to play as Duke' is a deal-breaker these days...Reply

And I'm a much bigger fan of Steve Blum, anyway...

Why I'm addicted to buying random Steam keysWhy I'm addicted to buying random Steam keys

Another good source of random dross is Steam Gifts (www.SteamGifts.com) - devs or indie publishers often dump piles of keys for random tat on there to push it post-Greenlight with a good chance of winning because of the volume of keys dished out by the RNG.

If anything, even if it's a load of drek, you can use a Card Idler to get a few pennies back for your Steam Wallet.

Dell U2717DA review: a beautiful, floating panel with an unfortunate pro-level price tagDell U2717DA review: a beautiful, floating panel with an unfortunate pro-level price tag

Dell usually use a standard mounting system across all their monitors - surely you can acquire the arm separately (for £X) then attach it to another more suited Dell screen?

Heck, do they have any G-Sync monitors under the Alienware brand?

Prey takes place in an alternate timeline where JFK wasn't assassinatedPrey takes place in an alternate timeline where JFK wasn't assassinated

Wait, I thought if Kennedy survived, he was impeached for improper sexual relationships and Hoover took over, plunging the world into chaos after mobsters found compromising pictures of him.

All because Lister wanted a curry.Reply

These lazy developers can never get their alternate history right. /s

Bulletstorm with Games for Windows: Live gutted out of it would be good.

EA were concerned that people didn’t know what WW1 was when DICE pitched Battlefield 1EA were concerned that people didn’t know what WW1 was when DICE pitched Battlefield 1

So, in reality, it's less "we're not sure the youth know what World War 1 is" and more "We're not sure this is going to sell millions so we'll invent a fallacious reason to drop it".
