The Week In Games: Hit That Man

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Hit That Man

Can you believe it? Hundreds of ice-cold bodies later, the fifth episode of Hitman is upon us! What better way to greet the cool autumn air and crackling foliage then with the deadly silence of a flawless assassination.


Other than that, uh, well, let’s call this a nice pale September reprieve from the glut of high profile games that’s sure to bombard us in the coming holiday season. Plenty of time to farm engrams in old Russia if you know what I mean (and I dearly hope you don’t).

Shantae was delayed awhile ago. It is not coming out this week (though I wish it was!).
