Kane & Lynch 2 demo released

Sunglasses at night? Some folk have no class.

Dog Days is the sequel to Eidos' lukewarm 2007 pyscho-em-up Kane & Lynch, to which 47 out of 10 people said they preferred that other Eidos game with a bald killer in. Not to be deterred, they've tried to make the sequel better, including the welcome removal of Games for Windows Live. The game's out on the 20th of August - grab the demo on Steam now, and let us know if it's convinced you.
