The Games Cabin: Square Enix are set to host a special party for a "secret" E3 game, the only problem is, it looks they they've given the game away early.
I've been asking for Kane and Lynch 3 since before the last Hitman was announced. When will I finally get it? I wanna see how there story ends once and for all.
Considering the second one (dog days if i remember right?) bombed hard, it's doubtful they'll invest heavily on a third one. Shame, I liked the first one, cracking story, but I couldn't bring myself to go through even the first level of the 2nd one.
You gotta finish it. Yeah it's short and the story isn't as good as the first but it's still very intense and decent.
Maybe Hitman will have a Kane and Lynch assassination mission?
lol... at least they'd wrap up the K&L IP... give it some respect. I like the idea! Haha. Make it DLC so it is outside of the main story.
One of the worst series of last gen. I hope it stays dead.
I want Freedom Fighters 2 after the new Hitman. I must've played that game a dozen times!
Wasn't Freedom Fighters from EA?
Yeah, they published it. I'm pretty sure that IO owns the IP though. In Blood Money, in the mission in the suberbs, there was a poster in the girls bedroom (where the guard sniffs her panties) that featured a punk girl wearing a Freedom Fighters T-shirt. Kane and Lynch also cameoed in a newspaper article later in the game.
Yea Kane and Lynch is defiantly one of the best games of all time so we should get a sequel to that.
Eh, would rather have a different "Kane" (:
Oh please let it play like Blood Money, I loved Contracts and Blood Money so much even though I never actually owned the latter. I'm going to be pumped.
I agree, Blood Money felt like the most solid Hitman since 2 came out. Absolution was good. Just not great. But felt like a tech demo. Very rigid, harder to make random encounters entertaining (like the casino & neighborhood missions in Blood Money). The rules need to be loose again. Make it truly free form in how you complete the goals.
Last Hitman was garbage. But the developer took the criticism and ran with it. Promising that the next Hitman will be open environment and more true to form. Hopefully they weren't lying.
"Last Hitman was garbage" Say What? did you ever complete Absolution?
absolution was dumbed down, it spat on the Hitman franchise
The disguise system was pretty bad even though I get its intention. It often took the fun out of the game as well as the general linearity feeling as compared to Blood MOney
if absolution was any other game it would have been an ok game, but as a Hitman game it was terrible, completely removing elements that make Hitman, Hitman.
Something about the way tutorials shouted in my face the basic mechanics of stealth and hitman put me off
@Devil yes I played and even Platinumed Absolution. If it wasn't a Hitman game it wouldn't have been bad, but it was and it was catered for the casual shooter crowd.
I wouldn't say it was complete garbage, but it was thoroughly lacking in every department compared to Blood Money. Still pretty fun though, hope they learn from their mistakes in Absolution.
looking forward to this if its anything like absolution i give up
Less linear, more like Blood money.
Yes!! One of the more underrated series is back.
Seriously... best feedback I've ever seen before on an N4G thread. Couldn't click Agree hard enough for these comments. It's an untapped gold mine of feedback for Square Enix, to help take Hitman where it deserves to go. If they can put Hitman at the same level as The Last of Us & GTA... it would be fantastic.
Considering they have another movie in the works, this would make the most sense. Just please go back to the roots of the series. Absolution was really watered down and took away the immense freedom of choice that the series was known for. Disguises felt pointless, AI was terrible, and everything was too streamlined making the levels feel cramped. It wasn't a bad game, nor was it a good Hitman game.
IO Interactive have been dropping hints on Twitter since the beginning of last year that they would be announcing a new Hitman game at this year's E3, this isn't what I'd consider a "super secret"... Here's 2 GameSpot articles rounding up some of the things they said: http://www.gamespot.com/art... http://www.gamespot.com/art...
Screw their "secret" then Make a damn console turn based JRPG for once in your lives.
Well I did enjoy the Hitman that they gave out in plus. I think its called Absolution but I can't really remember the name. Its good news if true.
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Why square Why don't you give us Legacy of Kain? sh!tman is stale just like FF stop milking the same old sh!t and give us that dead sun.BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO
I thought absolution was great, but shyed away from blood money in terms of freedom. If they bring the absolution gameplay back with hitman 2 style environments and let you choose your tools for the job etc then we have something truly great here :-D
But IO interactive already said they were hard at work on a Next Gen Hit man and that they'd be revealing this year. And Square confirmed as much. Not surprised, and the next hit man is hardly a secret.
