Other / 31. 12. 2019

Summary Silent Assassin blends fast-paced, cat-and-mouse style combat with the unpredictable antics of a frenetic multiplayer shooter. Players can use the coins they receive at the end of each round to obtain more weapons, perks, and gear. Silent Assassin was created by community developer TypicalType, who learned how to code from building his own games on Roblox. Silent Assassin, the hit stealth action game on Roblox, has been unleashed on Xbox One! Blending fast-paced, cat-and-mouse style combat with the unpredictable antics of a frenetic multiplayer shooter, this is one unique thriller nobody should miss out on. In Silent Assassin, players are randomly assigned one of three roles at the start of each round. There’s the titular assassin, whose quick feet and cloaking ability allows them to outmaneuver any foe. They have two objectives: stab the target, then escape from the scene of the crime. The target, meanwhile, must avoid the assassin and survive at all costs—which, admittedly, is easier said than done. They’re not entirely defenseless, though. Everyone else is a guard who comes fully equipped with an arsenal of firearms to help them protect the target and eliminate the assassin. But watch your back—if the assassin gets to you…

Other / 31. 12. 2019

Veteran tabletop role-players don’t have to think too many years back to recall a time when their hobby was well outside the mainstream of popular culture and the broader landscape of gaming.

Uncharted: Every Director the Movie Has Lost and Why
Other / 31. 12. 2019

Most fans of the Uncharted franchise are probably taking a “I’ll believe it when I see it” approach to the long-gestating film adaptation. First announced way back in 2009, the Uncharted movie has been trapped in development hell ever since, frequently gaining and losing writers, directors and actors over the years. The good news is that there’s been some recent progress on the Uncharted front. Sony has even established a new in-house development studio called Playstation Productions, one tasked with turning various Playstation franchises into blockbuster films. The bad news is that Uncharted’s revolving door of directors keeps spinning. Travis Knight is the latest director to drop out of this decade-old adaptation. Continue reading…
