HITMAN First Anniversary Infographic

IO Interactive celebrates the first anniversary of their episodic HITMAN game with the release of a one year of HITMAN infographic. This includes all sorts of tidbits and factoids, such as how there is more words in the game's AI dialogue than in the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. Here's their concluding message:

By the way if you haven’t tried out Contracts mode in a while, there have been a few changes. There is a search and share system plus there are now tags so you can quickly select the type of contract you want to play - so if you love Sapienza and sniper rifles, then you can quickly find a Contract to your liking and with over 250,000 Contracts available to play today that’s a good thing.

We are having a blast making this game, and we hope you are enjoying playing it, whether you joined us a year ago, more recently with the launch of the box or you’ve just joined today..! The HITMAN community is continuing to grow bigger and more awesome every day.

Dota 2 New Juggernaut Arcana Style

Steam News details the release of a new patch for Dota 2. A separate update on the Dota 2 blog has more on what this adds to Valve's MOBA:

Today the Juggernaut receives a new ‘Origins’ style for his Bladeform Legacy Arcana. Score ten kills with Omnislash to unlock this second form. With a new gem counter and overhead effect that track your total Omnislash kills, you can watch your tally increase in each battle as the Juggernaut’s mask burns with the energy of the fallen.

This update includes the release of Player Cards for The Kiev Major. Head into the Compendium section of your Battle Pass to unwrap your cards and start planning Fantasy Challenge rosters. You can also add Player Cards to your Dota 2 profile to show off your favorites.

Out of the Blue

Was a quiet evening here at the BlueTower, here's hoping that if you were celebrating St. Paddy's that you didn't suffer too badly this morning. Speaking of suffering, it sounds like we're being spared some here today. There was another dumping of snow in the forecast, but its approach has been met by repeated downgrades to the projected accumulation. At this point it sounds like this probably won't require shoveling at all, which is certainly a relief to those of us who already had to dig out once or twice this week.
