Life Is Strange Mod Gives Max An Emo Makeover

It didn’t occur to me that people might mod Life Is Strange [official site] – I guess it seemed a better fit for Tumblr cosplay and fanfiction and fan art so I didn’t really think about people tweaking the original until the Max Punk mod turned up.

The idea is that it converts Max’s clothing, makeup and hair to present her more in line with the teen emo aesthetic. You can now imagine her listening to a lot of Evanescence and (and I’m aware of how badly I’m showing my age here) having a Livejournal. Actually, I think Max would probably have an Instagram and a Tumblr and maybe be part of all manner of classic camera communities ALSO she would probably be a really active part of the lomography community.

Hitman’s Third Elusive Target Now Live

Honestly, you wait ages for one elusive target and then… No, I can’t even be bothered to finish that joke. Let’s get to the meat of this announcement so you can get on with your life of assassinating targets and polishing your barcode.

The third Hitman’s [official site] elusive target – The Prince – is now live in Sapienza. Well, he is unless you’ve already taken him out, in which case… good job? Leon would be proud. If not, read on for more:

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Transhuman Future Feels Too Cautious For Comfort

Shower scenes seldom Make You Think, unless it’s about what exactly you’re getting for that Premium Netflix subscription, but if anything sticks out for me about the impressive yet oddly unexciting Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site], it’s the sight of Adam Jensen washing his hair. Eidos Montreal’s latest presentation begins in Jensen’s new Prague apartment – a casually affluent man-den where you can phone other characters, watch newscasts that track your decisions through the story, answer emails, tinker with crafting resources, and generally get acquainted with the sleek, cadaverous sort-of-human in your charge.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided: Gameplay Footage, New Project Reveals From 4.30pm

I have never played more than five minutes of a Deus Ex [official site] game, but I do find the transhumanism and the artwork fascinating. I also had a dream pretty recently about Adam Jensen where it turned out that instead of being a modified human he was actually a secret bee with all these insecty body mods.

His sunglasses were actually his compound eyes and he had a weird stabbing wing that he could shoot out of his arm and pin people to walls with what was inspired by the foreleg of a praying mantis. I think he might actually have one of them in the real game but not from a mantis, more from some kind of galactic hypertriangle or something. He also slept in a hive and was often covered in honey. LOOK IT WAS A DREAM I DON’T KNOW.

Anyway, I feel like that’s as decent a set of qualifications as you need for writing a post explaining that you can watch the Deus Ex Universe pre-E3 livestream thingummy here from 4.30pm BST.

Final Fantasy XIV’s Revenge Of The Horde Update is Live

FOR THE HOR—wait what? Different horde? Well this is awkward… anyway, the new 3.3 update for Final Fantasy XIV [official site] is live today. It’s called Revenge of the Horde but has surprisingly little to do with shamanism or the phrase “zug-zug!”

Patch day is always a fun day because it means another hearty helping of things to dig into, and Revenge of the Horde seems pretty damn hearty. Going live yesterday, the new updates includes new dungeons, raids, storyline quests, PVP modes, and everything that Final Fantasy XIV tends to pack into it’s bigger releases. I’ve been unsubscribed for a few months, but I think it’s time to rectify that.

Just Cause 3 New DLC Dated, Adds Mechs & Gravity Gun

Never one for the conservative approach, Just Cause 3 [official site] is getting another batch of ostentatious DLC that’ll see protagonist Rico Rodriguez pilot powerful mechs and get to grips with an antigravity gun.

Mech Land Assault follows the Sky Fortress DLC expansion and marks the game’s second offering of additional content. Publisher Square Enix have now announced it’ll launch on June 3 (this Friday) for Season Pass holders, and June 10 for everyone else. Its big features include:

Head-Spinning Heights: Hitman’s 360° Marrakesh Trailer

It’s tough being hip nowadays, what with all the mobile cellular telephones and social medias and streams and memes. Another fad that seems to be becoming increasingly popular is 360 degree “interactive” videogame trailers. I like these and the latest Hitman [official site] number takes us to Marrakesh, should you wish to visit the Moroccan city before getting your hands on Agent 47’s latest outing that’s out today.
