Lara Croft GO review

It sounds like hyperbole to say it, but I think Lara Croft GO [official site] is about as close to perfect as games can get. It’s also something of a backhanded compliment, because so often what we love, what stands out most about games, is where their ambition reaches beyond their potential for perfection. But at achieving its aims, at delivering within its own boundaries,…

Lara Croft Go [official site], the tomb-raiding puzzle game spin-off in the same turn-based vein as Hitman Go, finally has a proper PC release. While I was off on my hols scrambling up hills and round waterfalls last week, she arrived on Steam doing much the same. John is a big fan of it on Android so coo, I'll have to check out this Alice…

Square Enix have released the video game. Nothing weird. Hitman Go: Def Ed is a fancied-up…

Hitman Go: Definitive Edition Sneaks Out Next Week

Hitman Go [official site] is a pretty little take on the murder simulator, reimagining it as a turn-based puzzle game of sorts for pocket telephones. It looks like lovely murderdioramas. It's been on PC for a fair while, for newer versions of Windows through the Windows Store, but I forget about that because I forget about the Windows Store. Not sure I've ever used it.…

IO-Nara: Squenix Montreal To Make Next Hitman

With Hitman's latest subtitle so recently creeping into public view, IO are already talking about 47's future. Speaking to OPM, Absolution's director Tore Blystad confirmed that the next title in the franchise will be developed at Square Enix Montreal rather than remaining in-house. Blystad reckons development will follow a similar pattern to work on the Call of Duty games, so presumably we can expect development…
