LEGO DC Super-Villains moustache-twirls onto PC today

Considering the gleeful destruction in TT Games's LEGO series, there's really not much difference between heroism and villainy - all the better for those wanting to take Harley Quinn for a casual hammer-rampage in LEGO DC Super-Villains, released today on PC. It's yet another in the all-consuming series of kid-friendly superhero sandbox games, and this time gives you the chance to create your own costumed…

Rumouramus! Harry Potter open-world action-RPG footage supposedly leaked

If you want to murder monsters as a wizard, video games already have you well-covered. But if you wish to murder monsters as an official Harry Potter's Wizardly World Of Wizards And Wizarding wizard at Hogwarts? You'd better cross your fingers and hope that supposed leaked video footage of a shiny new wiztacular going round today is real. The rumour says an open-world action-RPG let…

Middle-earth: Shadow Of War is having a free weekend

If what you’re missing this weekend is a chance to torment some orcs, worry no more. Middle-earth: Shadow Of War is available to play for free on Steam, so you can make all the nemeses you could ever want without paying a penny. And if you want to continue those rivalries past the next couple of days, you can also grab the full loosely Tolkien-based…

Hitman Season One missions remastered for Hitman 2

All the missions of Hitman's first season will be updated and playable within Hitman 2, IO Interactive announced today. Which is great. This will give the missions news ways to do murders, as well as a little extra visual fanciness and new modes. Which sounds pretty chuffing great. IO do specify that season one owners will get the revamped counterparts in Hitman 2 for free,…

Feature: "Sorry sir, I lost the suspicious bald man with the barcode on his neck in that crowd of five people"

Hitman 2’s crowd-skulking is quiet but effective

The man who kills bad guitarists is back. Hitman 2 looks mostly to be polishing the first game’s bald head, which makes sense when you think of it as the stand-in for a 2nd season that never happened. As a sequel, it doesn’t appear to be changing much, apart from giving assassins a bunch of new murder playgrounds in which to plot against wealthy charlatans.…

Middle-earth: Shadow Of War gets a demo and a discount

Walking into Mordor used to be fairly simple, but the way in was guarded by the dragon of commercial necessity. Now that Middle-earth: Shadow Of War finally has a demo--nine months after launch--that dragon will turn a blind eye if you want to slip into Núrn for free. He's probably hoping you'll come back and pay £15/$20 to stroll around the rest of Mordor before…

How not to be a villain, with LEGO DC Super-Villains

LEGO DC Super-Villains, TT Games' latest plundering of the Danish toy-chest, seems pretty determined to be That Suicide Squad Trailer Everyone Liked: The Game. Which is to say, bug-eyed mischief-making, faux-fanzine stylings and wall-to-wall Harley Quinn, whether you like it or not. Only, y'know, for kids. The game's been singing for its supper at the just-begun San Diego Comic Con, showing off the villains vs…

Welcome to Miami in Hitman 2’s “gameplay” trailer

Bienvenidos a Miami in a new trailer for Hitman 2 which crept out of E3 earlier this week, following its cinematic-heavy announcement. It shows Ian Hitman goin' to Miami--the city where the heat is on--to off people during a supercar race day, which will offer some exciting opportunities for creative murder in the stealth sandbox. This is a "gameplay" trailer in the "lots of clips…

J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot forms games division

Bad Robot, the production company of J.J. "I make every show and movie starting with 'Star'" Abrams, have officially opened a video games division. They have dabbled in games before, including collaborating with Valve on Team Fortress 2's Pass Time mode and with ChAIR on the still-unseen Spyjinx, but now they're really going for it. Video games are a good match for J.J.: they share…

Hitman 2 revealed by logo on Warner Bros website

Welcome to leak week, those pre-E3 days more leaky than a colander of leek soup. This time, it’s Warner Brothers. They've only accidentally left a logo for Hitman 2 sitting around in the innards of their website, the big sillies. It’s gone now but was there long enough to be spotted by Twitter persons RobotBrush and Wario64. Hitman developers IO Interactive had been teasing an…

Shadow of War’s captain Baranor stands out by fitting in

Warad, a child from the southern lands of Middle-Earth, is taken from his family and sent north as a hostage of peace. Adopted by one of the principal families of the country, he takes on a new name — Baranor — and rises through the ranks of the Gondorian army to become second-in-command of one of its principal fortresses. One of the few men capable…

LEGO DC Super-Villains turns baddies good

Seeing DC's superheroes are as bad as villains these days, at least going by their movies, it's perhaps no surprise that the villains are becoming heroes. Warner Bros today announced LEGO DC Super-Villains, the latest in the fight-o-build-a-platformer series from TT Games, and it'll see baddies becoming goodies to save the day. We'll get to build our own custom villain to lead the adventure, and…

Shadow of War expansion Desolation of Mordor out now

Middle-earth: Shadow of War Desolation of Mordor is the most nonsensical sequence of words I have typed in some time. Yes, this is the second expansion for the popular orc dating simulator set in the land of Lord of the Rings, featuring two brothers who love to fight sand and all the animals that live in the sand. It’s out now, and a free update…

Meet the boys of Shadow Of War’s Desolation Of Mordor

A new cinematic trailer for the second (and final?) story expansion for Middle-earth: Shadow Of War introduces the brothers who'll stab orcs into a sandy new land. They're off to the land of Lithlad, which sounds like the name of an electro-powered superhero's sidekick. Here, watch the new Desolation Of Mordor trailer.

Middle-earth: Shadow Of War removing loot boxes

Monolith have announced plans to remove loot boxes from Middle-earth: Shadow Of War in July, eight months after the open-world enslave-o-stabber launched. They've realised that they make the game worse, they say. The 'War Chest' loot boxes in Shadow Of War contain random items, orc slaves, and bits, and are sold for either the virtuacash earned in-game or for a microtransaction currency bought with real…

It’s official: LEGO The Incredibles announced

The supervillains at TT Games at continuing their fiendish plot to turn the world's superheroes into virtual plastic. Having trapped Marvel and DC champions inside a string of games, now they're making LEGO The Incredibles to snare Pixar's heroes too. It'll do those usual TT LEGO fight-o-jump a things, this time with the combined superpowers of the Parr family. It'll will launch in a few…

LEGO Incredibles on the way? Not so much of a stretch

The success of the LEGO games and films as a vehicle for legitimately good family comedy continues to be one of geekdom's most pleasantly inexplicable surprises. The LEGO Batman film had no right being so funny (or self-aware), and the LEGO Star Wars games even managed to make the prequel trilogy palatable. As such, pairing Pixar's knack for visual comedy and TT Games' consistently solid…

Shadow Of War’s Blade Of Galadriel expansion out today, along with free nemesis system update

My favourite Middle-earth: Shadow Of War nemesis story isn't my own, but one I found on Reddit. It was about a musician Orc who the player mercilessly humiliated time and time again, until his mind had broken and all he could do was murmur about how he'd "lost his song". It's tragic stuff, and while the new behaviours added in today's patch might not generate…

The Atom is joining Injustice 2, and he looks amazing

The Atom, DC’s shrinking scientist, is coming to Injustice 2 this month. It’s Ryan Choi, the character created by Grant Morrison, rather than the probably better known Ray Palmer version. That version is currently being played by Superman actor Brandon Routh on Legends of Tomorrow, a show that I love, despite knowing it's bad for my health. Becoming really tiny never sounds like a great…

Klonk! Powie! Zowie! Injustice 2 punches onto PC

Superheroes, supervillains, and superantiheroes from DC Comics are now kicking seven shades of heck out of each other in Injustice 2, the new fighting game from Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealm. The supersequel hit consoles in May and finally launched on PC today. Our Adam already played a bit on PlayStation 4 quite likes it so good, grand, ta.
