Weekly Stealth Update?

I'm thinking that a weekly podcast about the stealthy videogames news of the week is probably not the best way to expose this information. So instead I'm going to try a weekly update in which I lightly cover all the stealthy news of the week in one blog post.

We have some release date delays this week, along with an absurd amount of videos, and a videogame that's been turned into a board game.

Desmond Is Trapped In Assassin's Creed: Revelations

This trailer for Assassin's Creed: Revelations shows us what happens to Desmond at the end of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, which is apparently getting trapped in the Animus.

Use Your Instinct In Hitman: Absolution

Accessibility is one of the biggest challenges game developers face. That's why IO Interactive took so much heat for saying the next Hitman game in the series was going to be more accessible. For a lot of games this often means that it's tailored for the lowest common denominator. So how will IO make Hitman: Absolution accessible but still challenging? With instinct.

The demo seems to start at the beginning of the game in which Catwoman is captured by Two Face. There's some playable combat on her part and then we get to see Batman glide across the open city.
