Recent Buys: Episode 15 - Of Paper Bags and Absolution

Hitman Absolution Open

After seeing Conan O'Brien's "review" of Hitman: Absolution, I caved in and got myself a copy. Having not played any of the older Hitman games, I don't really know what to expect. I am very tight on cash right now so this purchase went through some deliberation which ultimately ended up with me spending 1850php and getting Hitman: Absolution for the PS3. This is an R3 copy and includes a few DLC redeem codes for Sniper Challenge, Agency Gun Pack, High Teck Pack, High Roller Pack, Public Enemy Pack and the Contracts pass code. I have no idea what the contents of these DLC packs are, I was just excited about the game. Contracts looks to be multiplayer related wherein you create custom missions for other players to download and play online.

Off topic, it looks like Datablitz is going green. I was a little surprised when they put my game into a slim white paper bag as opposed to the yellow plastic bag that I am so used to seeing. I don't mind the change but I will miss the small but tough yellow plastic with the print of different consoles on it. I believe I also saw a few Datablitz eco bags while I was there. They probably give them out if you purchase something big or your purchase reaches a certain amount.

Hitman: Absolution - First gameplay trailer

Hitman AbsolutionI won't lie to you - I never got into the Hitman series.  The gameplay never appealed to me. But Hitman: Absolution seems to give you the choice of either going guns blazing or silently assassinate targets, and I love  going guns blazing.  Check out the trailer below.

This trailer is actually making me consider giving the old Hitman games another try. But It'll probably take just a few hours until I give up and lose my patience at going all sneaky. Really not my strong suit.

Hitman: Absolution is planned sometime the 4th quarter of 2012 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.


Hitman Absolution Teaser Trailer

A teaser video of  a new Hitman game is out letting us know that it's coming. It's called Hitman Absolution and they are stating that it will be a completely different experience than previous games of the series. 


Not that much information yet about the game but expect Square Enix to show the game on this year's E3.  The game's site is also up but only provides the teaser video above.

Game director Tore Blystad is quoted as saying, “For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy. This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games; something our silent assassins will relish, as will all those new to the Hitman world.”

Hitman Absolution will be released for PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
