  1. The DF stuff is the pits. I watched a video of it last night, and wondered how certain people get any joy at all from games anymore. They were showing picture in picture comparisons of what looked (to me) to be the same picture! They even at one point looked at 47's damned eyelashes and said they looked better in the second game. I dunno, it just bores me to tears. These to me, all look the same, and while I know there's bound to be differences, I'm quite glad I can't see them/don't care about them. The forensic analysis of every pixel is bordering on lunacy. They also babbled on about lighting, and showed one comparison where the newer game with all the light magic going on looked fantastic, reflections everywhere, sunbeams through the curtains, reflective floor tiles, the lot. The problem was, it was so good as to be totally unrealistic. Tiled floors don't reflect like a mirror, sun rays don't penetrate like the lord above himself is trying to communicate with you. Everything was glistening like a WWF wrestler from the 80's.
  2. As far as achievements go, will all of the achievements from H2 go over to H3? I mean, will there be certain achievements/trophies from 2 that won’t unlock if played in 3?
  3. https://profile.hitman.com/ Thats the progression carryover web page. As predicted it’s getting hammered at the moment. Who could have predicted that one?!
  4. Yeah it should do it as you go along. If you open the card it’ll say something like xxx/10,000 if it does you’ve already been given them. Mine for instance says 1375/10,000. If yours is showing 10,000/10,000 then you should already have them in your points balance.
  5. Well the Hitman punch card didn’t come back. They assured me it would so I can only presume it’ll be back after initial release. Perhaps they only had a limited amount of preorder suit skins. Saying that the rewards app has been rather slim for the last few days. Hopefully MS aren’t pulling the plug on it.
  6. @KartoffelKopf Ah! That makes sense. Good job I read this, I was this close to sacrificing a chicken.
  7. I’ve created an IO account in preparation for getting everything crossed over and all that. No idea how to link to my gamer tag. Seat of the pants stuff eh? I’m awaiting further instruction. I can only imagine it involves an incantation at midnight and a feather up the arse or something.
  8. IOI Have produced a very informative instructional webpage explaining how to easily redeem the different versions of Hitman across the various platforms. I've printed it off to save me some time on release.
  9. @cassidy I had the same problem at first. If I remember rightly I went to the support page, selected I was having trouble installing a game, then was put to the “virtual chat”. That is useless, so after negging every suggestion it threw up it finally put me through to the rewards page. I emailed from there and it worked. If I can find the page again I will link it. It was through this page if that helps. https://support.xbox.com/en-GB/contact-us
  10. @retroed Do not pre order it yet! It’s coming back. I emailed them.
  11. I liked Absolution. It’s not a proper Hitman game, but there’s a lot of stuff in it that made its way over to the new trilogy. If the “proper”, Hitman games were a successful TV show, then Absolution would be the inevitable big budget movie spin off. I’ve got an old, dusty 360 copy sitting here. I own the remaster, so If anyone wants it let me know and I will fling it in the post for gratis. It’s backwards compatible.
  12. Well when you put it like that. I’m still confused, but slightly less so. So thank you.
  13. I’ve read it. I don’t understand it, but I’ve read it. I thought the solution would have been a bit more elegant, but at least there’s something in place.
  14. They could be setting up for a remake. Actually, story wise I don’t suppose that would make sense.
  15. This was the only reason I was holding off pre-ordering until the last minute. 6000 points is basically a free fiver for simply ordering a game I was going to get anyway. Marvellous, time to cash in some moon points.
  16. Holy tits, balls and willies! Hitman 3 is released in 10 days lads! I must say I’m rather excited. I never buy games at launch, but for Hitman I will make an exception. IO seem like a great bunch, and much more deserving of our money than some of the more usual (questionable!) suspects.
  17. One’s left. As it were.
  18. It’s a slow burner. Ammo is scarce so be thorough in your searching. Also there’s a lot of stealth required in places. It’s not a run and gun game really, apart from the places where it is of course!
  19. I started playing Death Stranding before lockdown, and became absolutely absorbed in it. I love the atmosphere, the desolation, the Reedus, the Madds and the Babbeh! The slow pace was enjoyable, the production and design is amazing, and it’s simply bonkers from start to finish. There’s nothing quite like it. Rather apt that it became a prediction for the state of the world only three months later! The stand out part for me was the fist time the Low Roar music kicked in and just over the hill you saw your first “city”. It just goes mental from then on, but that was a great introduction. As was incinerating the first body! Oh, Oh, Oh I’ve thought of another great bit, Peter Englert and his trolling pizzas! Following on from that, and during lockdown, I played Metro Redux and Last Light. Again a vision of the future perhaps, I loved them both. A bit of Doom, a bit of Half Life, and a lot of Russian! Excellent stuff. I was late to the party as usual, but a fitting game for the year I think.
  20. Me too. Perhaps a new year bonus? Ah well I will take it. @BubbleFish the 5k thing ran out yesterday, but the actual sale goes on until tomorrow I believe.
  21. See, stuff like that is why Valve, when they give a shit are just top of the tree. Sigh, maybe one day Gabe will do a George Lucas and flog the lot to Disney or something. We’d have more Half Lives and Portals than you could shake a baby Yoda at then.
  22. Ah great good to know. Are there any recommendations for fun, relatively easy 1000 pointers? My recommendations for those who are yet to rinse them would be Edith Finch, Day of the Tentacle, Fractured Minds (not the best game, but if you read up on it, it’s worth supporting), Carrion, and Nightcall (if you fancy a weird text based taxi adventure).
  23. I’ve tried clicking on that and keep getting an error. Just me or..?
  24. Here’s some from the tail end of 2020. I finished the Queen’s Whatsit one yesterday.
