Does anybody remember Crystal Dynamics' cult third-person action adventure title, Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver? Some of you

IO Interactive Staff Up For "One Of The Most Exciting Projects" In Its History

Someone call Kane & Lynch -- tell them they're fired

Why? Because Danish studio, IO Interactive, is staffing up for what it touts to be "one of the most exciting projects" in the studio's history. We're guessing this has more to do with Hitman than Mini Ninjas. The role — for a "Lead Character Artist" if you're interested — notes: “We are looking for an exceptional..

North America Can, Ahem, Get To Grips With Aya Brea From March 29th

Parasite Eve is back

(Sort of.) Square Enix has readily slapped a March 29th release date on Square Enix's PE spin-off, The 3rd Birthday. Bizarrely, the game will only release on UMD, with "no plans" for a digital version. We don't get it. What's the disadvantage of releasing the game on UMD and the PlayStation Store? Weird. In addition to the release date, Square's also confirmed that..
