This week the lads return with a massive review catch up show. Enlisting the help of Sneaky Bastards front man, Dan Hindes, the guys take a look at Splinter Cell: Black List, Puppeteer, Rayman Legends, Diablo III and give their first impressions of GTA V.
It’s been a week since life returned to some semblance of normalcy in the shadow of PAX Australia. There’s been plenty to read about the three days dedicated to gaming, some good, some bad and I thought I’d weigh in from both a media and personal point of view.
PAX AUS: Sneaky Bastards’ Stealth Gaming Panel with a non-traditional stealth expert speaker from rawDLC
At an event the size of PAX AUS fleeting moments of disappointment were inevitable. With the sheer volume of people in attendance it was nigh impossible to get into every panel, game demo or concert. The Stealth Gaming Panel was one such hot commoditiy.
It’s been a while, since Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, that pure stealth multiplayer left any lasting impact on online gaming. While it may be incorporated in aspects rawDLC and Sneaky Bastards’ Dan Hindes lament its loss and ponder where it could resurface in the future.
When Dan Hindes dropped in to rawDLC he was on a mission to educate the lads on the misunderstood stealth genre. Line of sight and sound are key components in gameplay, but just how important is the investigative A.I. and the rules it has been programmed to follow?
On this week’s podcast Dave and Josh are joined by PC Powerplay’s Daniel Hindes as the lads take a balls deep look at stealth gaming. Dan dishes the goods on his Sneaky Bastards website and its Kickstarter magazine project before the trio power review Hitman HD Trilogy.
