Will probably too, at least for the lowest digital tier that gives me the game. I'll buy it later anyway, so I can as well spend the money right now.

I like the unit graphics in that one. Wish I still had the patience for that sort of RTS.

Grey Goo looks cool.  Not my cup of tea since I don't usually play RTSs, on account of sucking horribly at them (I generally like to take my sweet time in tactical/strategy type games, which is fine in turn-based and not at all fine in real-time), but I appreciate the genre and the skills necessary to excel at them.

NExt-Gen Hitman To be Revealed Later this Year

 

 

 

Hitman developer IO Interactive has confirmed that the latest instalment in the series is due for a full reveal later in the year.

 

Though the new Hitman game was first mentioned in January 2014, little has been said of it since. Developer IO Interactive previously confirmed that the game will depict "a globetrotting Agent 47 at the prime of his career", and confirmed it will ship on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

 

Following a protracted silence, one fan asked IO Interactive via its official twitter account when the new game will ship, to which the studio replied "there's more info coming this year and we can't wait to share it".

 

According to comments made by IO Interactive last year, the new Hitman game will retain the "core" of the series, insofar as players can use a "wide range" of tools to take out a diverse group of targets on a global scale.

 

 

The game will run on a form of the Glacier 2 engine, which powered 2012's Hitman: Absolution.

 

"We're packing in an extreme level of detail on the largest levels we have ever built for a Hitman game," IO Interactive stated at the time.

"We've adopted an open, non-linear level design approach to the game, ensuring the game will play out across huge, checkpoint-free, sandbox levels. Our aim is to create living, breathing, and believable levels which will allow gamers to play around with the AI to create those unique moments every fan of the Hitman franchise loves."

Contracts Mode, a mission-editor feature that allows players to create murder scenarios, will also return for the new Hitman game. Players will be able to create these challenges and then share them online.

 

"You will also be glad to hear that we have removed 47's magic pockets," the developer said. "We believe that's all we need to say about that subject."

Hitman Absolution, the last triple-A instalment in the series, was released in 2012. Since then, series co-developer Square Enix Montreal has been working on expanding the IP to mobile, and in April last year it shipped a puzzle game called Hitman Go, which was nominated by GameSpot as one of the best mobile games of 2014.

For those who haven't seen this yet, a web site called XP4T is running a best RPGs of the 80s poll.

 

Great idea but I  sadly haven't played one of those games  :blush: 

 

But its not my fault, I grew up near the end of Apartheid and we  didn't have access to certain things as easily as others

I wasted many, many hours in Battletech: Crescent Hawks Inception

 

Is that the leg actuator or the coolant exhaust port?

Has there been any word on the progress or potential release date of Pillars of Eternity?  I don't believe I've heard much in the past few weeks as far as updates and wanted to see if anyone here has heard anything?  

I'm guessing March/April. I hope it isn't March 24 as I have seen on some sites. That's the same release date as GTAV PC version.

Total War: Warhammer?

There have been rumors before, but this seems solid.

Games Workshop's whoring out of the Warhammer license continues.  This time they can finally deliver the bug-filled, utterly broken experience their fans have been craving by partnering with Creative Assembly!  :shifty:

didn't the license just go with Relic when Sega bought them?

THQ had a license for 40K exclusivity, not fantasy. And that license just died with THQ.

 

Now there's no exclusivity on 40K, but no rumors of deals either.

The entire Total War series is just a dumbed-down version of Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat anyway. /care :shrugz:

Doesn't Slitherine own the 40K license now?
