People love the Hitman games for the meticulous ways you can take out a target. Wear an outrageous outfit, slide in between the shadows and NPCs and perform an assassination with meticulous stealth. Yeaaah, there's none of that in the new comic from two dudes who worked on the last game featuring Agent 47. It's pretty…
'Tis better to have bought and saved than never to have bought at all.
It's all about timing in the companion app business. Some people might tell you that it's best to get out a mobile application that keeps track of your performance, equipment and the latest right when the game is released — the sort of people who buy milk with their cookies so they can enjoy them at the same time.…
Playing Hitman: Absolution professionally requires a lot of stealth and planning. You scope out the scene, and land your kills in such a fashion that no one will notice.
Look, it's already pretty clear that the folks at IO Interactive like a particularly adolescent style of joke-making, what with the closet-humping and all. But the latest effort at promoting the Square Enix published game invites you to fling their poor taste at your Facebook friends. It's pretty tacky.
Hitman: Absolution lets players don a variety of disguises. And now, one of those outfits is the Deus Ex suit. Because if you want to blend into a crowd, what better way to do that than with a futuristic body suit!
Hitman: Absolution's "Contracts" mode has seen more than 50,000 levels created by the community, Square Enix says.
Hitman: Absolution begins with 47 driving an ice cream truck, so it's not that much of a stretch that one of the weirdest easter eggs in the game features the vehicle's deadly return.
The video game industry isn't all fast cars and trips to Japan. For every studio head basking in the glow of media attention there are 100 developers lower down the food chain whose job can be a little more mundane.
Far be it from me to only harp on Hitman: Absolution's less admirable qualities. The game is also frequently funny, and often very well-written. The overheard dialogue is often worth sticking around and listening to, and the crowd chatter is among the most convincing I've ever heard in a game. (The game itself is a…
Hitman: Absolution is a game that requires a lot of sneaking around, and like most sneaking games, you'll find yourself regularly incapacitating guards and stashing their bodies. Every time you stash a guard in closet, his body will slump standing up over to the left side of the enclosure.
Hitman: Absolution's "Saints", a troupe of stripper nuns, aren't actually in the game for long, but they'll forever live in infamy for their appearance in a rather silly pre-release trailer for the game.
Hitman: Absolution is a wickedly smart, darkly enjoyable video game, one that's as generous to players as its protagonist is merciless to his victims. You'll stab, strangle and shoot your way through level after level, sometimes grimacing, sometimes scowling, sometimes laughing. When all is said and done, you'll…
The next Hitman title is just around the corner, releasing this coming Tuesday. We all know what Conan O'Brien thinks of the title, but maybe you're still curious about the stealth game that approaches.
Oh, Conan. You surely are the clueless gamer, but you manage to make some of the best commentary regardless.
The Hitman series has long been about choice-bald-headed 47 was set loose inside a semi-sandbox with a target or two, and players could come up with any of a number of ways to do away with them.
