sniper elite 3

For many people, no doubt games are a distraction or “escapism” – just as books or films are. But, for some of us, these creative mediums are so much more. Our line of what games mean and should mean and should be doesn’t have to align with yours; I’m certainly not demanding every gamer take games as “seriously” as I do. Apparently, that’s a bad thing because obviously people don’t make a living from games, run crappy or amazing businesses, have their lives ruined or made by the industry, cry while playing games, experience great joy and sadness – nope, all games are all dumb and meaningless. I should stop taking it so seriously.

Sniper Elite 3 Releases in North America on July 1, 2014

Some say Hitler shot himself in a bunker in Berlin in 1945. Others believe he fell to a sniper bullet two years earlier during a secret trip to North Africa. Or was it his double? Decide for yourself when you get your hands on Sniper Elite 3’s pre-order bonus “Hunt The Grey Wolf.”

Hitler, Allied code name “Grey Wolf”, and his double have embarked upon a clandestine trip to the Libyan port town of Tobruk in 1942. In order to prepare for this mission, and that crucial final shot, you must infiltrate the ancient streets and crumbling rooftops of the German-held town using stealth and distraction. Featuring an expansive open environment, and randomized target identities, journals and locations, no two playthroughs will be the same. The question is – can you tell fact from fiction, the real target from the double?

You can pre-order Sniper Elite 3 at GameStop or other major retailers. The collector’s edition for Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 features a limited edition ammo tin box, dossier, three exclusive ammo and weapon DLC packs, collectible playing cards, sniper shooting range target, dog tag and a bullet-shaped torch pen.

The latest chapter in the award winning series, Sniper Elite 3 takes players to the unforgiving yet exotic terrain of WWII’s North Africa conflict in a battle against a deadly new foe. Sniper Elite 3 will release at retail in North America on July 1, 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 4 system and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. The game will also release digitally on July 1 for Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PlayStation Network for both PlayStation 4 system and PlayStation 3 system. The PC version, which is being self-published by Rebellion, will release on June 27.

MY BALLS EXPLODED! Sniper Elite 3 Gameplay! Part 4!

UK development studio Rebellion claims that a batch of Steam keys for Sniper Elite 3 has been stolen, and access to the game from accounts which purchased

In addition to their being some question about the legitimacy of Rebellion’s claims, even if this were completely true this is still an absolute scumbag move. If keys for your game were stolen, that’s your problem, don’t take it out on your customers. I hope that all those who had their keys revoked will be fortunate enough to get a refund from the distributor they purchased from, but even if they do, I hope that we see a boycott of Rebellion over their piss poor handling of this. It certainly seems like they deserve it.

Full disclosure: I did not purchase Sniper Elite 3 and am in no way affected by this, it just disgusts me to see a developer behaving this way.

I do wonder if Sniper Elite V2 and Sniper Elite III’s respective X-Ray kill cams qualify the series as 420SC material…

I mean, you’re liberating a heck of a lot of fleshbois from their non-calcium-based bits and pieces, and the game sees it fitting to reveal the skelebro within every so often.

That said, there’s also a lot of exploding skulls in there. Maybe that’d qualify as a form of murder in the Skeleton Collective.

I guess that means I have to stick to testicle shots, from now on. Thank you, Tactical Assistance!
