While quite a bit more straightforward than the recent "Creative Kills" trailer, this video highlights stealth gameplay, a major element of Dishonored. You'll be able to visualize enemies' lines of sight and, unless I'm mistaken, even how far the noise you make by running travels through the environment. And, of course, leaning. Lots and lots of leaning. (Jordan Devore)
Rockstar has graciously released four new GTA V screenshots to go along with the other screens it drip-fed this week. Altogether, that's amounted to ten whole images this week. Man, that'd be enough to almost justify a single post! (Jim Sterling)
Imagine broadcasted or streamed advertisements that are playable as mini-games, with an online element so that you could play with other viewers. A new Sony PlayStation patent, found by GameNMotion, seems to spell out how this would work. (Dale North)
It may lack some of the community niceties, beloved maps (Assault, anyone?), and little features of past games, but Global Offensive delivers on the promise of a faithful, polished, and better looking Counter-Strike for whoever wants it. Even if the community doesn't meet the golden standard of 1.6 and Source, CS:GO will remain a multiplayer classic for those willing to put in the time to learn the maps and weapons.

That's right! Destructoid is hosting an open bar drink-up at PAX Prime this year, and it's all thanks to Interceptor Entertainment and Apogee Software's Rise of the Triad, and Razer. Best of all, you're invited!All you good looking people should head to Buckley's sports bar in Belltown on August 31, from 8PM to midnight. (Hamza Aziz)
Gearbox has released an official 16-bit retro demake of Borderlands 2, which is now available to play for free. It's a top-down shooter containing all the combat and loot-gathering fans have come to expect. (Jim Sterling)
