Did you manage to take out Hitman's first Elusive Target?

Over the weekend, Hitman players had a single chance to hunt down a unique character. Sergei "The Forger" Larin was the first of the game's Elusive Targets -- one-off encounters that go live for a limited time and won't return. There's no s...   read

Don't get Hitman GO for Oculus Rift if you already own it

The era of VR exclusivity has begun, and it's just as I feared. Not only are consumers expected to have a VR-ready PC, but they also have to deal with platform fragmentation. Case and point -- Hitman Go: VR Edition, a fabulous port of an al...   read

Review: Hitman: Sapienza

Hitman's first episode was a measured, strong proof of concept: that Hitman works best in large sandboxes with interstitial systems, rather than trying to string what are effectively set-pieces into a linear narrative. The job (professional...   read

Hitman GO VR is an Oculus exclusive, VR features not coming to Steam version

I want to vacay in Hitman's Sapienza

Despite my confident, casual unholstering of the word "vacay," I've never actually taken a vacation, on account of all the poverty. Still, feels good to dream, and Hitman's take on Italy looks downright idyllic. I mean, not the weird bit wi...   read

Naked body pile executions are why Hitman is so good

You may remember from my review that the new, episodic Hitman is good as heck, "a dope slapstick murder comedy." I recounted a few funny tales here, including a pretty amusing, but not all that creative kill (it's practically set up for you...   read

Would you rather kill Gary Busey or Gary Cole?

Well, Hitman is no stranger to out-there advertising strategies. At least this one doesn't allude to a heavy flow. Also, preemptive joke reminder: Gary Coleman died in 2010.   read

Maybe bloody advertisements in the women's bathroom aren't the best idea

Review: Hitman

Hitman is the funniest game I've played in a while. IO Interfactive's subtitle-free reboot of its long-running assassination franchise is, mostly, side-stepping cinematics full of S&M nuns and returning to the realm of slapstick. For an...   read
