Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood shows off wolf stealth

World Of Darkness 'em up Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is just around the corner, so the developers over at Cyanide Studio have begun releasing some videos to show off a closer look at how it plays. Today's developer diary gets into your werewolf's rage resource but I've gotta say that what really caught my eye was the wolf stealth bits.

BioWare share artwork from the cancelled Jade Empire 2

A long, long time ago in video game years, before BioWare were known primarily as the Dragon Age and Mass Effect studio, they were working on a sequel to their action RPG Jade Empire. After multiple internal reboots from Jade Empire 2 to Jade Empire Modern, to spiritual successor Revolver, the project was eventually cancelled internally without ever being announced. BioWare art director Matt Rhodes…

These Hitman 3 speedruns happen so fast I hardly know what happened

Hitman 3 has now been out for just a couple days, so naturally speedrunners have already managed to beat its levels in under a minute. I really like puzzle-y stealth games but I approach them as I do a game of chess: thoughtfully, slowly, and badly. That makes me the exact opposite of the folks who are already making their way through Hitman 3 levels quickly,…

Yes, Valve “definitely have games in development”, Gabe Newell says

While he's spending quarantine in New Zealand, the national news channel has gotten Valve guy Gabe Newell to sit down and pointedly not answer some of his very favorite questions. They did their best to ask about all the games that end with threes, but Newell of course declined to say anything on the subject. He was willing to say that the company has games…

Skyrim modders are getting creative with this AI text to speech tool

The magic of AI-powered text to speech continues as Skyrim modders get their hands on an application that generates speech from text based on voice samples from Bethesda games. It's already inspired a trailer with AI-only voice acting and a new mod that gives Skyrim characters lines to compliment your dragonborn's naked figure. Oh, the things modders will do.

Hitman 3’s progress migration site is down but Io Interactive are working on it

Launch day log in issues aren't a thing I'd expect to hear about surrounding a single player stealth romp but hey, it's 2021. There are no rules. Hitman 3 is out today and it seems that the website meant to import your prior hitmaning progress into the newest murder fest is having a bit of a struggle. That wouldn't be so bad, except waiting to…

I hope you're not full up on early access announcements yet because I've got another one for you: Rustler, which has nicknamed itself Grand Theft Horse.

If equine heists are your thing, you can find it riding off into early access in February.

Put words in game characters’ mouths with this fascinating text to speech tool

Machine learning is absolutely fascinating and yet I mostly just enjoy when people use impressive tech to create weird skits and memes. That's exactly what everyone appears to be doing with an extremely impressive machine-learning tool that lets you type in text for various characters to say out loud. Want GLaDOS to read you bedtime stories? You can do it. Should Team Fortress 2's Scout…

This spooky squirrel surveillance game launches in February

"Ah, what another lovely looking game about photographing animals," I thought to myself upon first glance at Nuts. Look at the beautiful colors. Spot those quirky squirrels. I'm sure it's quite relaxing. How wrong I was. Nuts has announced a February release date for its squirrel surveillance story and there is definitely something sinister going on in this new trailer.

Phasmophobia’s worst objective is getting removed, thank goodness

Yes, I know official spooks month is long past now. Yes, I am still playing Phasmophobia. The co-op ghost hunting simulation is just too much fun to mess around in with pals. The more familiar we've gotten with the game though, the clearer it is that there is one ghost hunting objective that is the absolute worst. It doesn't sound like much, but snapping a…
