Let’s get something out the way real quick, people. The first Kane & Lynch felt like we were forced to watch two adults with down-syndrome knife fight – it just didn’t seem right. It was an abortion from the womb of atrocity, and it left many bad tastes in our mouths. But that was the past, and that monstrosity is nothing but a dying memory as we continue to push forward with our gaming.
Things seem to have changed with what we’ve been seeing as of late, though, with Eidos’s sequel, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days – where you take two of gaming’s most notorious criminals and lay waste to the baddies in Shanghai, China. The game looks nuts. What else can you expect from a game where two of its protagonists are, well, insane.
Because this game looks insanely good (pun intended), we’ve decided to include some screenshots for you, along with information regarding the exclusive Xbox 360 demo facts, which I found to be pretty interesting. If you’re interested to take a glance at what I’m talking about, you might want to hit the jump. Believe me, it’s worth it.
Exclusive Xbox 360 Demo Factoids and Info
IO interactive has just revealed some startling details surrounding the restricted demo released to a limited number of Xbox 360 users.
One thing is for sure – crime definitely pays.
To date more than 27 billion dollars have been stolen through successful heists. That’s approximately 161 million dollars laundered every hour.
Or in real world numbers, 27 billion dollars is equivalent to JP Morgan’s 2009 annual staff compensation.
Who says the big money lies in hedge funds?
Get rich quick schemes always come at a high risk, though.
More than 116,000 players were killed in the act of pulling-off a heist. More staggering is the fact that only 8,000 of those kills were made by undercover cops.
This means the vast majority of players share a common characteristic with gaming’s two most notorious criminals – you’re all a bloody bunch of untrustworthy crooks!
