Loot: The Kane & Lynch 2 Demo

By Jim Rossignol on July 27th, 2010.


You can get it on Steam, because the game itself is all snazzed up with Steamworks n stuff (matchmaking, steam achievements, stats, etc). The demo features a slice of Kane & Lynch’s ultraviolent criminality for you to sample, something which Io’s Niels Jørgensen describes as “tension and excitement not found in other games”. Why not see if you agree with him? For all we know this could be exactly the tension and excitement found in Armadillo Run. But anyway, I’m hearing good stuff about the full game, especially the multiplayer, which Quintin was yammering about last night. We’ll take a proper look at it soon. In the meantime, download, judge!

Grimacing: Kane & Lynch 2

By Jim Rossignol on November 18th, 2009.


Yes, you read with your eyes – those same eyes that are squeezing out a single tear for the lack of a new Hitman game – that Eidos and Io Interactive have confirmed Kane & Lynch 2 for release in 2010. The press release offers an entertaining snippet of hyperbole to go with this news: “Introducing a new visual experience, Kane & Lynch 2™: Dog Days is inspired by documentary filmmakers and the user-generated era. Every aspect of the game has been designed to deliver a fresh perspective to the words ‘intensity’ and ‘realism’ in video games.”

Wow!™ We can hardly wait.
