The best thing about Hitman is its huge sandbox levels, and fortunately this year’s sequel will continue that trend. IO Interactive’s keeping a lid on the full roster right now, but it has been showing off its Miami stage, which is built around a race track. Depending upon the actions that you take, you’ll alter the outcome of the Grand Prix – and open up new assassination options.
As is the case with its predecessor, this level is a sprawling sandbox with a multitude of different murderous opportunities. You’ll be able to masquerade as a mascot, infiltrate a kitchen, and even work as a mechanic. Exactly how you kill your targets is up to you, and it looks like there’ll be even more options than ever before.

The Puppet Master series has been consistently running for almost 30 years. With The Littlest Reich, there are now 12 films to the slasher franchise. And with that many sequels comes a precipitous drop in quality and budget down to one film only shooting 30 minutes of new footage. It hasn't been great. But when you reach these kinds of lows, you can only go up from there, right?
Yes. Yes, as it turns out you can. Watching an army of Nazi toys kill droves of people in brutal and disgusting ways has never been so fun. I dare say that Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich is the best Puppet Master movie of all time.
Bold words, I know.

Weta Workshop, the props studio behind the Lord of the Rings franchise, has revealed a new Lara Croft figure based on a tense scene from Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The $800 USD statue is a 1:4 scale model made of polystone. It was designed by Weta's Daniel Falconer and was first shown off at San Diego Comic-Con back in July.
It shows Lara in the jungle as she's pursued by a jaguar. The richly detailed model shows Lara with her fighting tools like her knife, bow, pistol, and pickaxe. The tree the jaguar stands on is covered in moss, while the entire figure stands on a base that looks like stone. Only 750 of these are being made; you can pre-order now from Weta's website.To survive in the deadly jungle, Lara Croft must hunt or be hunted. Deadly enemies swarm the forest floor. And from above, stalks the Queen of the Peruvian Jungle.Learn more about the exclusive statue designed by @WetaWorkshop: https://t.co/m55v1UlP5Y pic.twitter.com/SrEawf6DQh — Tomb Raider (@tombraider) August 16, 2018
"I fondly recall staying up far too late playing the original Tomb Raider game into the small hours, so it was a delight to revisit Lara Croft two decades later to dream up pose ideas for this statue," Falconer said. "Lara is the fearless badass we all wish we were!"
The new Lara figure is part of Weta's new Shadow of the Tomb Raider collection....

I have this weird relationship with Steam sales. The large seasonal sales offer so many games that I struggle to find anything of interest. But the smaller scale sales? I can't stop myself from falling for them over and over and over again, no matter how large my backlog gets.
The newest Spike Chunsoft sale this weekend is no exception, let me tell you.

Those who enjoy the Souls series are currently in need of a fresh set of bosses to test their patience and skills against, but action RPG Death's Gambit aims to fill that void. With fast-paced but precise combat, gigantic bosses with unique tactics, stunning pixel art, a mysterious story, and a killer soundtrack, the game aims to offer players a similar experience - just more sidescroll-y and pixel-y.
In this action RPG, you play as Death's right hand in a world where immortality makes a few powerful beings quite troublesome. Death doesn't seem to be taking the undying graciously, so it falls to you fell these colossal, dangerous immortals and purge their souls. Not exactly an easy task, but you'll be able to choose from 7 different classes, each with its own skill tree to develop, to choose your own path to ending these endless lives.
The path is not a lonely one, though, as you may encounter some curious folk with tales to tell along your journey through the gloomy countryside. With a little persistence, you may uncover some secrets places and pieces of information as well. If neither of those interest you, you can continue on to the next monster to decimate (or more likely be decimated by, as the game's foes are extremely intelligent, demanding skill and tactics to outfight).
The Jackbox Party Packs are known for irreverent wordplay/drawing games that are great to play with a group, like Quiplash and Fibbage. However, you can only have so much fun with letters and doodles, so it looks like the team is trying something new; today Jackbox Games revealed that the final piece of Jackbox Party Pack 5 is a slingshot-physics game called Zeeple Dome.
Making sense of the action in that trailer isn't easy, but Zeeple Dome is clearly more action-focused than Jackbox's traditional fare, with an emphasis on aliens, weapons, and explosions. Plus, it supports up to six players.
We'll learn more about Zeeple Dome when Jackbox Party Pack 5 releases this fall. For a closer look at the title, you can see us play a round of Patently Stupid, another new creation for this year's compilation.
The Switch needs heroes.
With the Diablo III Eternal Collection now officially confirmed to be coming to the Nintendo Switch this autumn, there’s been much buzz about certain other games Blizzard could eventually release on the platform.
When asked by GameSpot if the team-based multiplayer title Overwatch would ever make it to the Switch, Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell said it was "feasible":
