Hitman: Blood Money

Hitman: Blood Money was released today, May 30, 2006, for PS2, PC, Xbox and Xbox 360. The newest Hitman game does a good job of keeping the old features, while making them better and adding new ones to the game. The AI is a little weak, but not as bad as it has been in previous games of the series and many other games are thousands of times worse than this game's AI.

The storyline is good and unlike the other games in the series is open-ended. After Each mission is completed you get a daily newspapper, which sums up the crime you commited, it really makes the game feel more a alive. The graphics are far better than what they were before, but on the Xbox 360 a little behide other games. Overall I rate this game 8.3, Blood Money is really worth your money.

Microsoft Buys Massive

Microsoft buys Massive, which is a advertising firm that specializes in serving ads in online games, so it looks like Microsoft may start putting more advertisement in it's games. Rumors of Microsoft buying Massive have been circulating for about a week. One interesting thing about this buyout is that Massive already signed deals with Sony Online Entertainment, Microsoft main gaming rival. Ads may soon start appearing on Xbox live.
