It's not everyday I drop a post saying 'oh, look everyone, this random game is now available for you to purchase', but for Mark of the Ninja, I'll gladly make an exception.

There's just something special about games that make you sneak. The push, the pull, the contemplative pause... and the rush of action. We've been spending the last week playing one of the most enjoyable stealth games in recent memory, and so we thought we'd take a closer look at the genre. What makes sneaking so much fun?

Most people might take their stealth tips from Solid Snake or Sam Fisher. Me, I'm more in tune with, uh, the Kool-Aid man. Seriously. Just burst into the room in the most reckless way possible and "problem solve" by shooting people up close in the face -- that's how I do things. Patience, finesse and furtiveness aren't my thing.
