    @beastmaster

    While the rest of us cry with pity, gnash teeth in frustration, and pour out our feverish rants on here about how they've raped the soul of 47, pissed away an excellent opportunity, Squeenixed it into an atypical action game, you'll be sitting there thinking:

    "This is great. What's everyone complaining about ?"

    You lucky bugger.

    Fuck that. Complete lack of understanding of what made blood money any good in evidence there.

    Eek.

    Still, at least it wasn't too late to cancel my order.

    Eep. I await Tuesday with equal dread and enthusiasm. Part of me still has hope.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    I'm hoping you can still force a Hitman game out of it, even if it takes a lot of willpower and patience. Going to play it that way and hope the DNA is still there....... Shopto for me too so may see it monday too.

    Afaik, it's just one of many options how to kill that target, and QTEs are understandable seeing how the game will hardly have a sophisticated fisticuffs system . Could still be a well designed level.

    Mind, seeing how I always had a love/hate relationship with Hitman until Blood Money, which I think has probably the smartest level design of any game ever, I am as worried as anyone else after the PC Gamer review, but I can't really draw any negative conclusions from that video as such.

    If this gets bad reviews next week, I may kill myself.

    Maybe.

    Will see what the reviews are like but the videos out there don't look good...

    Still, the HD collection is out soon & they can't mess that up surely...

    Buy the Halo 4 Limited Edition, like I did, then you can spend even MORE money!

    P.S. You're not buying Halo. I don't believe it will happen.

    I do kind of vaguely. I think I did for the level or map or arcade preorder thing you were supposed to get. I never fucking got it.

    Anyway, I thought the last splinter cell was superb when everyone else hated it, so maybe I'll like this.
    If it was Shopto & the preorder Sniper challenge then the d/l code was available within your Shopto account/order history too. Quite enjoyed it for a bit.

    Just turning it over in my hands... The wife/kids are going out for a couple of hours. I'm meant to be working at home for that time.

    That cellophane is coming a little loose.

    Going to talk to my wife.

    OMG look at that wrestling footage :-( So sick of QTEs and having them in Hitman?? Jesus

    Still despite cancelling my Birthday pressie it looks like I'll still get this next week as Mrs bad09 has bought it for me as an late extra one today (end of the year really is Christmas for me with games :) ). Got the others installed so might put everything on hold and do some killing before getting disappointed with the new one

    I hope the performance isn't as bad as PC Gamer make out.

    Ah, my copy has arrived.

    Latest Edge gave it 7 (it's just arrived through the post).

    "At it's worst, Absolution is never less than a solid action-stealth title".
    "But if many of Absolutions additions are misguided, contracts isn't one of them"

    Overall, it's been diluted by fashionable trappings of other stealth titles that have intruded upon the series.

    It seems as though the title is saved by the amazing MP. Who would have guessed.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Well, I just did the second mission and I can confirm something for all the doubters :

    This is definitely a Hitman game.

    Same concept and execution as the others, but this time with a fancy new engine and a few new bells and whistles.

    Really enjoying it so far.

    Im on the fourth and Ultrasoundwave is correct the game plays like a hitman game yes not all the levels play like your going after a hit but you play then as you like guns blazing or silent.

    I want to give contracts a crack but want to complete the story first.

    Playing it on Hard are yes it is very hard trying to find everything. Ive set instinct mode so I can see people but no paths or hints which adds a nice extra challenge.
