  1. I really hope they overhaul the weapon gaining/gear progression system, maybe allow you to actually fucking upgrade shit too.

  2. People keep saying it’s going to be just Hitman, and I can see that, but honestly it just doesn’t feel right for them to just give us another 5 sandboxes and call it a day because 007 is very different from Agent 47, while there has been many versions of Bond throughout the years, I could never see him as a sociopath that just straights up murder innocent people to get to his objective, if anything he is about avoiding as much collateral damage as possible every time and I don’t think the slap on the wrist that is losing a few points when you kill someone who is not a target is enough to convey that, I just can’t play as a Bond that can kill anyone at anytime and still feel like I’m playing as Bond. But I can’t see Hitman sandboxes being as fun if you are severely limited in what you can and cannot do. It’s complicated.

  3. Anyone tried Hitamn 3? Is at least good as H2? How’s the performance?
    I don’t use chink lanuchers and these doesn’t even have a forum so…

    • Hitmanforum is a thing, anon.
      And the game is overall weaker than 2, the levels are smaller but more gimmicky though, which could be more to your taste. It has a bigger story focus too. Main issue is that H3’s post-launch content was really lackluster.

        I only post on Ganker and steam. I don’t want to make a new account because these can be hacker and later send you massive spam to your emai account. And making a fake one it’s a pain.

        But thanks for the reply. Hope that in steam we’ll get the complete edition.

    • 3 is good, but it’s really just more of the same. It’s not a true sequel like 2 was to the first of the reboot trilogy where they changed the UI and added new mechanics. The most 3 adds beyond its new levels is a pocket camera for 47.
      But if you like the gameplay, then all the levels are pretty good imo.

    • I felt every level has such a great intro to them, you’re sucked into these amazing locations only to dive further and realize the levels are not as kino as I expected them to be.
      China was possibly the worst fucking level I’ve ever played in a hitman game

        • Ching chong is very disappointing because what sells you on the level is not what it focuses on. The appeal is these rainy, neon filled streets but then you play the level only to find out that’s barely three streets and that most of the map is devoted to an apartment complex and an Umbrella facility. It’s a letdown

      • Hitman 2: Lets have all the same gear to unlock as hitman 1 except with a shitty tramp stamp on them and no stat difference!

        • To be fair Hitman 3 is also guilty of this to an extent. A sizeable amount of the unlocks are an already existing item with a tacticool reskin.

  4. I think if they do a thing where there are clearly marked infiltration missions, but also a few action set pieces with more robust third-person shooter mechanics, it could be a really cool experience.

  5. so is this game like a fully original story that uses no existing bond actor’s likeness and what not? that would be kind of neat.

  6. Sounds great, as long as there are levels set in some of the more fantastical locations from the series.

    • >and doesn’t get the girls
      He just doesn’t care about it, being basically asexual. Getting invited to women’s hotel rooms, which ends up being an asset in his assassination plan, is a running gag

      • And that’s why he’s so boring. Don’t take it wrong, I like these games because you can always can find some fun/wird way to kill you victim but… his character is to dull like in these old jrpgames with silent protagonists (for self insert)

        Reply
        • No, I completely get you. Being practically an empty shell of a person is part of his character, so it’s understandable that he wouldn’t come off as very compelling. I find it interesting, personally, it’s like seeing something alien trying to adapt to a world he isn’t a part of

    • pretty much the entirety of On her majesty’s secret service when Bond was undercover.
      Also in You only live twice when Connery pretended to be Asian

    • This has to be the dumbest fucking comment I have ever read on Ganker and I’ve read some dumb fucking comments before

      >When does Bond ever use a disguise?

      All the fucking time? Do you think MI6 standard issue uniform is a fucking Tuxedo? You people need gassing.

      Reply
      • I like that Bond’s infiltrations are actually 99% confidence though. He barely bothers with a costume or a cover story. Most of the time he just marches in and nobody questions it, because he walks around like he owns the place.

        Reply
        • yeah. but he should use disguises more any way. one of the few good scenes in Diamonds was when he stumbled around that lab and improvised some speech about what he’s doing there.
