Crack the Deus Ex: Human Revolution code

Richard Cobbett at

Have you seen the cryptic code on the Deus Ex: Human Revolution title screen? Reddit has, and its codebreakers are already at work. A URL? An SQL injection? Part of a longer reference to Megadeth? All theories are welcome, and if you're looking for a hacking challenge slightly more involved than realising you can click multiple nodes at once when attacking systems, here you go.

This mysterious code follows up promises of a special announcement yesterday, which could be anything from DLC to news of an expansion, to a slightly premature celebration of Deus Ex at least temporarily kicking Zumba Fitness from its perch on the Top 10. At the very least, it looks like there's something interesting on the way, regardless of how long it takes this code to be cracked open.

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion can't sleep tonight, because a maniac has charged a bandit base with an Ak47 and everything is exploding.

E3 2011: Far Cry 3 dev: "Games flirt with vulgarity. If done incorrectly, they become pornography"

Owen Hill at

Ubisoft Montreal's Jason Vandernberghe has been talking to PC Gamer about how games deal with mature content. Far Cry 3 is set to be an M-rated game when it releases next year, but the narrative designer stressed the badge doesn't give developers reason to pack games full of filth. He also hinted Far Cry 3 might be more of a cerebral experience than gamers who spent FC2 burning everything might expect.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood review

Tyler Wilde at

The most important thing you need to know before starting Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is that, after the first hour, you’re never forced to man any more asinine cannons. Don’t be discouraged by the frustratingly pointless, cinematic-heavy introduction, because everything after that is compelling. I couldn’t stay mad at the game for long—not after nimbly scaling Rome’s famous Coliseum and flicking my blade into the necks of three hapless gunmen, all entirely undetected. Brotherhood’s massive and complex open world is an engrossing, blood-soaked playground.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood trailer goes to Rome

The latest trailer for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is all about Rome, and how you won't just be assassinating targets when you visit the Italian capital. You'll also be leading a revolution, rebuilding the city and bringing justice to its cruel leaders.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood lets you drive a tank

The latest trailer for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is a narrated walkthrough that shows super stealthy assassin Ezio sneaking into a guarded facility. It looks like a standard infiltration mission, right up to the point where Ezio climbs into an armoured tank. Watch the full trailer below.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands review

PC Gamer at

A disconcerting sense of déjà vu blankets The Forgotten Sands. It’s not that this latest Prince of Persia evokes the marketing surge for Disney’s just-released Prince of Persia movie – Ubisoft would be quick to point out that this is not a movie tie-in. And it can’t be that the game is too similar to the Prince’s last outing, because this is actually a return to the earlier The Sands of Time trilogy, taking place between The Sands of Time and Warrior Within.
