Southpeak Games has announced that Velvet Assassin, as every single game before it, has gone gold. The publisher celebrates this accomplishment with new screens, including one of heroine Summer Violette stabbin' Nazis in the chest.

While that may be enough to sell you on the World War II era game, the publisher's proclamation that Velvet Assassin "excels in its ability to make players feel something more than just gameplay" might just send you into a tizzy.

Interestingly, nowhere in the press release announcing the game's imminent release—it ships to retailers on April 30th—is the word "stealth" mentioned. Sure, "clandestine acts" are mentioned, as is Violette's need to "sneak her way into heavily guarded Nazi strongholds" but one might think the S-word is passe!

Nothing about the concept of this game sounds fun.

-WW2 game

-stabbing mostly

-not the best graphics

-stealth game that isnt MGS or splinter cell

-as a female, she is not the most attractive i've seen in a game before

-mental instability

-killing dream sequences

i dont see this game selling well, nor do i see it getting good ratings, or being fun. but i know i'll see soon.
