Comic Book From Writers Of Hitman: Absolution Isn't What You'd Expect

People love the Hitman games for the meticulous ways you can take out a target. Wear an outrageous outfit, slide in between the shadows and NPCs and perform an assassination with meticulous stealth.

It’s pretty much “insert sword into demon, dodge attack, shoot face off, repeat”, all of it drawn by an artist famous for gory action.

This Manages To Make Hitman: Absolution's Stealth Seem Hilariously Broken

I adore YouTube user Cricken. I don’t understand how he manages to break games the way he does. Here he is playing Hitman: Absolution, making me feel like I put too much effort into trying to be sneaky when apparently Hitman is more hilarious when you’re sloppy about it.


Hitman: Absolution Site Wants You To Threaten Your Friends [Update]

Look, it’s already pretty clear that the folks at IO Interactive like a particularly adolescent style of joke-making, what with the closet-humping and all. But the latest effort at promoting the Square Enix published game invites you to fling their poor taste at your Facebook friends. It’s pretty tacky. Update: Square Enix apologises.


Dress As Adam Jensen From Deus Ex In Hitman

Hitman: Absolution lets players don a variety of disguises. And soon one of those outfits will be the Deus Ex suit. Because if you want to blend into a crowd, what better way to do that than with a futuristic body suit!

The Bromance In Hitman: Absolution Is Hilarious
