Hitman Absolution “Streets of Hope” Developer Walkthrough

There aren’t many games that will let you dress up as a priest to strategically hunt down and whack an enemy in the forehead with an axe, but if that is your cup of tea, Square Enix has the game for you!!

Hitman Absolution’s PR took a bit of a hit pre-E3 this year due to some unfortunate marketing that involved some sexy nuns and extreme violence upon said nuns. It looks as if the folks behind the game have gotten things under control and put out an AWESOME developer gameplay video earlier today.

Eighteen minutes later, I sit at my desk with my mouth agape and an urge to both spend money and wear a mechanic’s outfit. I marvel at the sheer number of options you have at your disposal when it comes to killing enemies. They range from uber-simplistic run-and-gun shooting, to living Rube Goldberg-esque mouse traps that will take multiple play-throughs to explore.

I jokingly say that I would love to see the wireframes and decision trees that comprise all of this madness. These guys must be amazing chess players.

Take a look at the video and tell us what you think in the comments below or on the social networks.

E3 2012-Brand New Hitman: Absolution Gameplay Footage

Again, why can’t I have this now?

Hitman: Absolution = WOW

Looking at games on the horizon I thought I might do a little refresher on some of the goodness coming our way. One of those games is Hitman: Absolution. Me being a huge Splinter Cell fan kept me away from ever getting into the Hitman series; But after watching this gameplay video I might have to take my first plunge into one of these games. Here is the video:

The updated graphics, amazing lighting and tight camera angles add a level of immersion that I’ve been looking for in a stealth-action game. The AI commentary seems to add a great layer to the gameplay and your “Hitman Vision” looks awesome. I REALLY hope that the action specific music you hear during the helicopter and getaway sequences is in the game. It really adds to the level of badassery you will undertake while resuming your role as the iconic Agent 47.

This game looks amazing. Tell us what you think and if you liked this story hit one of the share buttons below.
