Hitman 2 is still as weird as ever

He had stolen the mascot outfit, and was waiting to meet the same driver, Sierra Knox, that I had been assigned to kill. While you could always play it straight in Hitman, there are plenty of ways to get weird, like walking down a catwalk disguised as a supermodel to get closer to your mark. “I think it’s very much about providing temptations,” said Hitman 2 executive producer Markus Friedl at E3. (Friedl was mum on if we’d see any celebrity elusive targets, like Garry Busey or Home Alone’s two

Resident Evil 2 Features Tactical Zombie Dismemberment

Resident Evil 2‘s announcement during Sony’s E3 2018 press conference on Monday caused quite a stir. Several examples of how gunshots effect zombies in Resident Evil 2 were shown in the demo.

In the past several years we’ve seen the Resident Evil franchise reinvent itself, and it seems like the Resident Evil 2 remake will continue that trend. Re

Best ways to share files securely

These are not exclusive so don’t be afraid to combine them if necessary, or look into other ways to share files safely, too. This is especially useful when you want to share files that are too large to email. PGP/GPGPGP and GPG are two programs which make use of public key cryptography to send files securely. The advantage of this is that instead of having to share files via a cloud service like Dropbox, files can be synced directly between two devices. More devices can be added to share files w

A lovely PS4 theme celebrates Pride Month

LGBT Pride Month kicks off June 1 — which means it’s running right now until the end of the month. A free PS4 theme called “For All the Players” is now available on the PlayStation Store — a quiet release that Sony merely calls “a special theme.” The theme’s aesthetic is rainbow-themed, appropriately, transforming all menu icons into far more colorful versions of themselves. There’s also a big, rainbow-colored signal boost of the DualShock-inspired PlayStation logo toward the top of the screen,

Horror, melodrama and porn are the same genre

However, the ways horror, melodrama and porn overlap can teach us a lot about how emotion is depicted across cinematic genres. All three categories fall under the header of “body genres,” which means they privilege provoking a physical sensation over plot development or narrative closure. The purpose of a body genre is to provoke a specific emotional response in the audience, be it fear, sadness or arousal. Despite how popular body genres are, they’re broadly considered low culture, largely beca

PS1 Classic could well be the retro console that fills time before the PS5 lands

The PS1 could be the latest game console to get the ‘Classic’ treatment, if a statement made by PlayStation chief John Kodera is anything to go by. Speaking to Mantan Web, Kodera was asked if there were plans to make a PS1 Classic, to which he replied “There is nothing we can talk about at the moment." I think there are various ways to do [a classic console]. Perhaps a Sony classic would fill the console shaped gap that the next three years could be leaving us with. With a back-catalogue of game
