Load up on expired cans of soup, flamingo costumes, and explosive golf balls. Hitman 3 is almost here and it’s time to kill some assholes.

A few weeks back, I finally got around to playing Hitman 2 beyond the first level. I have no idea why I waited this long to get around to playing it, but I’m so happy to be back.

DISCUSSION

I’m going to pass on Hitman 3 not because I don’t like the franchise in principle (I’ve particularly enjoyed Bigmooney06's Let’s Play videos on YouTube of the series) but because I massively, enormously, “I thought I was good at video games, what’s wrong with me?” suck at Hitman.

It’s more fun to watch someone who plays the game in a manner that doesn’t make them look like they’re wearing oven mitts.
