Feature: Bane of my unlife

Dark review

There's a heatwave sweeping across this part of the world, which means I start to sizzle like bacon on a grill as soon as I pop my head out of the front door. I haven't turned to dust yet or begun to sparkle but I fear that my skin will peel if I don't shelter indoors and I'm becoming increasingly moody about the lack of…

We’re Basically In The Dark About This

I have to admit that I am intrigued by Dark. A sci-fi vampire stealth game doesn't turn up every day, so even if Dark doesn't look like it's going to be able to compete with the highest AAA production values, it's going to be fascinating to see how it plays. That we've yet to see any kind of hands-on with the game might not bode…

Will It Be Any Good? We’re Still In The DARK

Kalypso Media describe a vampire as "the ultimate killer". Maybe I'm being picky, but I'd say the ultimate killer is one who doesn't die if he sees the sunshine. Or if a cocktail stick pricks his chest. Or if his head is cut off. I mean, those are some pretty severe weaknesses. I'd argue "the ultimate killer" would be one who can go outside whatever…

Dark’s Gameplay Trailer Shows Squatting, Darkness

Kalypso and Realmforge's stealth action game Dark has revealed its sneakings and dude-throttlings in a new trailer, which you can see below. The sci-fi vampire game, which is still scheduled for Q2 of this year, looks intriguing, with references to Splinter Cell and Deus Ex chiming in with its more Masqueradey vampiric associations. The trailer shows a lot of the sneaking action, as well as…

Skulking, Sulking: Dark Has Vampiric Stealth, Grumbling

I really quite like Dark's premise, which basically amounts to vampires tossed in a scrumptious stew of stealth, role-playing, and gritty near-future conspiracy. On paper, that reads to me like Vampire: The Masquerade meets Deus Ex, which is something I'd expect to find in a box labeled "All of Nathan's Hopes and Dreams." There would also be a pony. But then I see footage, and…

Dark Peers Out Of The, Er, Dark

It's been a long time since we've heard from DARK, a spooky action-RPG. Six months, in fact, with pretty much radio silence from its publicity machine. So to reappear with only more screenshots at this point seems a little odd. It's time for some more footage, guys. Moving pictures. This doesn't feel like progress. The last time we saw it was May's rather impressive teaser,…

Supernatural Splinter Cell: DARK Is A Vampire Stealth RPG

When I first saw the words "vampire" and "RPG" appear in DARK's elevator pitch, my brain immediately made a mad dash down the portion of memory lane marked "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines." But then my incredibly rare T-Rex-like vision disorder cleared up, and I saw other words skitter out - for instance, "stealth-action" and "RPG elements." So no, this probably isn't the long-awaited successor…
