    • I found the JFK bit they did at the end really entertaining, and was legitimately caught off-guard by the swordfish.

    • Yeah speaking of the theme song, it never really fit the show at all, kinda can’t believe they’ve been using the same song for like 13 years now. Even the intro has some flavor text dating back to episodes from early ‘08

    • yhatsee should change his theme song. Been watching for over a decade, at first it was cool, then kinda nostalgic for when people actually listened to rock and metal, now its more akin to an edgy 8 year olds idea of cool. It's just really an odd fit considering theres probably been one or two metal references in the history of yahtsee, maybe even abandon the idea of theme song all together, it is a convenient way to artificially lengthen your videos, but I'm sure you can do the same with actual content.

  • I love the sandbox mode, but the levers were so disappointing compared to the previous installment. None of them even come close to the first Paris level of the first Hitman reboot. The last level in particular is a joke. I wanted an epic concluding mission (not a story). Hokaido is still the best out of those. This was just sad and pathetic.

  • The best way to play the newest Hitman trilogy is turn off all the assists! You actually have to think to solve the giant puzzles set for you and fully explore the maps to find all the pieces. Sure it takes waaaaaaaay longer but it’s so satisfying when you figure it out!

  • Can't agree enough with the situation being the worst part, they are really well made and funny sure, but they really limit your options if you want to assassinate targets without having your hand held. There are a billion people with eyes in every direction so you kinda have to do a situation to get the target somewhere safe (or not so safe i guess) That is if you don't want to throw pennies around all the time.

  • Hitman is 1% gameplay, 99% desperately trying to figure out how to do anything remotely productive (murder-wise) without setting off an instant and permanent cock-up cascade. I'd rather play Dark Souls or Nioh, to be honest... at least when they kill me, I can go back and try something completely different, rather than stare at the game for five hours trying to guess exactly, exactly, EXACTLY how to do things "right". I could shoot some magic, bait the enemy to a better combat area, try another weapon or stance/grip mode. In Hitman, you get to guess, try, fail and guess again. "Oh, he could totally see me from way over there. Huh. Oh I see, some youtuber solved that by tossing a coin past him first, that makes total sense for a trained security guard to be distracted by that for the ten seconds it took to strangle that target behind a low hedge." Not my idea of a fun game.

    Gregor McscrungusGregor Mcscrungus24 päivää sitten
    • @Gregor Mcscrungus Yeah the story is what keep me going in Kane and Lynch if one thing i would like in Kane and Lynch 3 is better AI,more open level's ,multiple choice's, mission variety,longer and online and that's it that's all i'm asking for.

      The CrowThe Crow24 päivää sitten
    • @Gregor Mcscrungus Yeah it' been what 11 year's since Kane and Lynch 2 Dog Days came out im just waiting IO or Square Enix whoever own's Kane and Lynch to make a 3rd beacuse Dog Days ended on a clifhanger we need a satysfing conclusion .The reason Kane and Lynch has better story than Hitman Trilogy beacuse you have these 2 guy's who are human's they make mistake's, show emotion's and have chemistry where Agent 47 is just a clone who displays any human emotion he almost act's an obidient slave.

      The CrowThe Crow24 päivää sitten
    • @The Crow It's weird. Kane and Lynch is like the opposite of Hitman. Crappy gameplay, but it has a great story that's packed with emotion, and is also really "Unsafe" in terms of appeal

    • Kane and Lynch had an amazing story but the gameplay definately needed improvement overral i love to see Kane and Lynch 3 . Hitman need's to take a break.

    RichardRichard24 päivää sitten
  • Why can I not post? Ok it stuck. Who remember the Mary Whitehouse Experience? Nobody. Anyway, back to serious matters... I can’t believe Yahtzee actually believes Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated president Kennedy! It’s less cannon/lore/commonly believed than [reference to current affairs/politics and vague relation to video game industry joke]. Amirite?! Edit: Hannah Montana’s virginity bracelet! Hannah Montana is a video game. Or am I thinking if two scary twins I forget the name of.

  • Suit only Silent assassin for the actual game. Mission Stories and disguises are good for learning the levels. If you just played each level once with a 0 star rating your wasting your money and not really playing the game IMO.

  • I mean, you could just turn Mission Stories off if it’s really a bother. I never have them on even when I was going through the levels the first time. It means I can explore around without caring about where the guiding hands take me.

  • I remember playing Hitman Blood Money. In the mission where your primary disguise was a Santa hat like the rest of security, I climbed up on top of the elevator then fished for guards with my garrote wire. Every time I thought I ran out of guards and could safely go for my target, I'd drop down into the elevator and fine another guard. Eventually I had the entire guard staff on top of that elevator. Walked up and stealthily poisoned the guy's drink. Didn't get a great score from that, so I loaded a save and brought a sniper rifle. Shot out the bottom of his glass hot tub that, if I remember right, was suspended over a ravine. Too funny.

    Taylor WallTaylor Wall24 päivää sitten
  • It feels odd to criticise the game for the cartoonish absurdity of 47 being a blatantly obvious killer when, at least from I played of Hitman 2, that's part of the humour. The game is played half for jokes and the other half entirely straight, the plot and setting thinks it's part of a serious spy thriller while the game knows it's a sandbox playground, 47 is a Looney Tunes character that thinks he's a serious spy. You're not supposed to treat the targets as genuine threats because the moment they're a target they're transported from the plot into the game where the main character can you use a starfish as a shuriken and blow a man off a roof with a massive industrial fan.

  • Haven’t played Hitman 3 yet, but one of my favourite things in this series was pulling off “silent assassin”, “suit only” and “sniper assassin” all in one go in the Miami level. It took hours and lots of thrown briefcases, but it was worth it.

    LOZFFVIILOZFFVII24 päivää sitten
  • The "people don't recognise Hitman" thing is just a silly part of the silly gameworld. That way, Hitman can be set in Dubai or India, and the pale, stern-faced man doesn't suspiciously stick out because everyone is pretending, so you get a sandbox you can play in.

    RG001100RG00110024 päivää sitten
  • The mission stories are by far the best parts of the levels actually. Just turn the hints off so that you actually have to explore the level to discover them. It makes the whole experience so much more rewarding rather than following sign posts to the next part of the objective.
