Mark of the Ninja Steps Out of the Shadows, Now Available on Steam
The shroud has been lifted off the PC version of Mark of the Ninja, and if all the enthusiastic accolades about the hit XBLA game are any indication, it's a title well worth picking up on Steam for $14.99. The stealth side scroller is a beautiful, violently crafted love letter to those enigmatic Japanese master assassins, and PC gamers with even a remote liking for throwing shurikens and unsheathing samurais should be right at home with Mark of the Ninja. While the price of admission isn't too steep, so are the system requirements, as anyone still holding on to their Windows XP systems with AMD Phenom 9750s or Pentium D 800+ CPUs and GeForce 7800 GTs will easily be able install the game and start hunting enemies from the shadows. If you've seen the trailer for Steam, set your sights on last month's Mark of the Ninja launch trailer for a quick slice of the game's foreboding premise.
