Casual games are not everyone's cup of tea, as evidenced by our controversial inclusion of PopCap puzzler Peggle among Joystiq's top ten titles of 2007.

In the third of the Kane & Lynch Insider series, the developers at IO Interactive discuss the multiplayer mode of the game and the (offline only) co-op. One thing that stands out to us as we watch the video is that the graphics aren't all that spectacular. A petty complaint perhaps, but e...

So far we've been pretty impressed with what we've seen of Kane & Lynch. The blackguards at Joystiq seemed to enjoy their time with the game at E3 as well.

We've been impressed with the IO Interactive (Hitman) title Kane & Lynch: Dead Men ever since the first trailer popped up nearly a year ago. While we haven't seen much in the way of gameplay, the trailers so far have shown that Kane & Lynch should offer a compelling story at the very least....
