NEW RELEASES: ‘SPLINTER CELL: BLACKLIST,’ ‘NOW YOU SEE ME’ & MORE [GAMES & DVD ROUNDUP]

Any doubts gaming’s summer swoon has ended are stealth-killed from behind, courtesy of master agent Sam Fisher who is back doing his remarkably addictive sneak-and-kill thing in Splinter Cell: Blacklist. If more direct assaults on enemies are your thing, Killer is Dead and Lost Planet 3 will help you get your visceral assault fix. There’s also a stunning RPG in Tale of Xillia and the charming platformer Rayman Legends. On the home video side, it’s sex, violence and conspiracy-laden TV series week with Da Vinci’s Demons, Spartacus: War of the Damned and Ancient Aliens all scrapping for your attention, as well as the stylish magic-themed conman thriller Now You See Me, which looks to make some of your cash disappear.
