Big video game news is coming in drips and drabs, so Headlines and Hot Takes isn’t packed with massive stories or anything, but we do have a few things to talk about. Deus Ex lead designer Harvey Smith is working on a new game, so we discuss whether that could be a new Dishonored or something entirely different. Also, it may be nothing, but there’s a rumour floating around that Ubisoft Plus is coming to Xbox Game Pass. And we were obviously going to give that a mention.
In Show and Tell, Matthew comes with opinions on Hitman 3 after getting his hands on a preview build. He hasn’t been able to play the whole thing yet, but the first two levels have given him a hankering for more murderings. Meanwhile, Colm’s been playing Super Meat Boy Forever, and now he just wants Super Meat Boy 2.
