Hitman Devs Sorry About Stupid Hitman Trailer

Hitman's E3 trailer, which showed a squad of sexy ladies dressed as nuns being slowly and methodically beaten to a pulp, created a bit of stir.


So much so that the developers of the game, IO Interactive, have apologised for its content.


"We're sorry that we offended people – that was truly not the intention of the trailer," IO's Tore Blystad told IGN.

"Of course we understand, this has been a very big topic for us and we've been reading as much as we could of the articles and responses. We were surprised that it turned into such a huge topic. Something similar happened with our Sniper Challenge pre-order bonus... We just wanted to make something cool, it wasn't the intention to stir up anything."

And there you have the reason I didn't like it. This is what they thought was cool? When people want someone to blame for the dire content in so many blockbusters, you sometimes have to stop pointing fingers at "evil" marketing and "stupid" publishers and sometimes point them at the people actually making the game.

I'm sorry, (not really) but what is this a big fucking deal here?

'Oh no! This trailer released about a game and I find it offensive! And, everyone knows, that when something offends me I must take up arms and make sure all people everywhere know my disdain for said offensive material and make sure those people, whom hear my bitching, share similar hatred for it, least I try to force my beliefs down their throats.'

Seriously. Everyone. Ever. Forever. Needs to get over themselves right the fuck now. There will always be material that you hate. There will always be something going on in the world that you loathe and, no amount of whining, complaining, or incessant bitching will stop it.

Congratulations for your futile efforts to make others care.

We get it. You have feelings. And you want everyone to know what they are and how they are being affected. No one cares. Why? Because this complaining is no different than anything else game related. There have been so many petitions and so many posts from people, lately, about how some games upset them. So many that no one should take them seriously anymore.

The moment you stop complaining about everything there is for a while, and bring up something that deserves your wrath down the road, then I will care.

Til then, quit acting like spoiled children.
