Remember That Hitman 5 ARG? Now It's Kicking Up Screenshots!

Remember that alternate-reality Hitman 5 game we told you about the other day? Well now it's kicking up bonafide screenshots

Four of the images reference the Canada's CN Tower — the world's largest free-standing structure. Fans are speculating that this suggests Hitman 5 will be set in Canada. It's the fifth image that is most interesting though. It looks to be a screenshot from a CGI movie,..

The taster comes with a unique scenario featuring Lightning, as well as the ability to carry any in-game items plundered into the main game. In..

Spot of make-up and a touch of botox and look at that, good as new

Crystal Dynamics has released some comparison shots for their upcoming PlayStation 3 Tomb Raider Trilogy.

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

Well as of tomorrow you'll be able to revisit the PSone classic as it launches for £7.99 on the European PlayStation Store. For those unfamiliar with the title, it's pretty moody. If moody is your cup of tea, then step right ahead.

ESRB Rates Parasite Eve For PlayStation 3 & PlayStation Portable

Looks like Square's readying that digital copy of Parasite Eve just in time for the series' upcoming spiritual successor, The 3rd Birthday

The survival horror classic has been rated by the ESRB for a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable release — presumably via the PlayStation Store. Don't hold your breath over a European re-release — the game never came out over here.

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..

There'll be no more Final Fantasy spin-off action once the upcoming Duodecim hits store shelves next month

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..
