The video arcade made me what I am today!


I can't remember if Blood Money reuses it, but the crouch animation in Contracts was the worst. You don't even "crouch" you just drop into a weird uncomfortable position with 47's leg kind of tucked under his other leg. And then sneak-walking was this painfully slow ordeal where 47 drags one leg behind him while he's bent over like a hunchback.

It seems like sneaking in Blood Money was basically the same except the sneak was faster. But still, it never seemed like you had to actually use the sneak option. Walking straight up to a guy from behind and then just garroting him always seemed to work fine.

No the traditional bad idea advert for Blood Money was a picture of a dead woman with a GSW to the face with the caption "beautifully executed"

Pictures of real life dead people with the tagline : Silent assassin above them, dotted around high streets and playgrounds for all to see.Guaranteed complaints and controversy.

Replica bodybags with the hitman logo emblazoned on them, left in parks and outside local police stations and old peoples homes.

Big signs saying "YOU'RE NEXT" and a picture of 47 leering at you, left outside selected local schizophrenics houses for maximum carnage.

I hope this game has a bunch of humorous ways to kill people like Blood Money did.

My personal faves were shooting out the bottom of the glass hot-tub in the Hugh Heffner stage or the glass atrium roof over the swimming pool in "A New Life"

I also derived sick pleasure in throwing everyone on the upper floors of the Hotel/Casino over a balcony.

Or the occassionial terrorist attack, hiding a bomb in a gift box or food tray and dropping it on a crowded dance floor.

What is wrong with me???

I enjoyed what I played of the beta but its a bit easy. Being able to chuck a marble bust fullbore into a dudes face to knock him out right before breaking a guys neck is pretty cool though.

The snippet of gameplay in the beta makes hopeful, but yeah it has seemed a bit easy. Concerns me for the episodic structure of its only going to be a mission an episode.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation. I actually named my daughter after the Pink ranger and will provide proof if challenged.


Sucks you couldnt kill the fat dude at the Meat Baron mission by suffocating him with the chicken you can carry in as a waiter. You could hide a gun in it sure, but just putting it on his head til he suffocated would've been better.

Absolution was also pretty easy on the "normal" difficulty but got better on the higher levels, they will probably do the same for this game. At the very least removing the spots over the disguise-breaking enemy heads would go a long way

I was alway creeped out by the ad with the dude with the chello and his throat is cut and it says something like "CLASSICALLY executed" or some poo poo. Hitman adverts always sucked. its probalys because they have no idea how to market the game publicly.

You don't. Fortunately you don't need to. I never actually saw any of those ads outside of people talking about how controversial they apparently were.

Maybe, but not as easy as this. Blood money didn't have any tools that were remotely as strong as the new "chuck object at head instant KO" move. You had to sneak up behind someone and syringe them and that wasn't always easy.

I've realized something important.

This game is about a gun-toting artificially created supersoldier with an iconic black and red color scheme who betrays the source of his genetic material and who is morally grey in a series of increasingly edgy games that have suffered from hamhanded writing, staff turnover and an unclear vision of the core game dynamic.
