All of these games I've wanted to pick up when they were on sale, and luckily newegg was doing such a thing. But I have heard mixed things on most of these, other than Vinny's love for Binary Domain and need to experience Big Bo for myself. And the last time I played a Hitman game was when I was younger and I don't have the real fond memories everyone else had of it.
SSX, that game had so much potential to be a great reboot to the series... and I'm not sure what the hell happened... I liked Absolution, maybe it's because it was my first Hitman game, but I don't see it as the awful piece of garbage everybody else says it is. As for Binary Domain, I've never played it but Big Bo seems to be an awesome character.
SSX. I bought it on launch. Played single player for a few hours. Got wrapped up in some other games. Came back to it for some multiplayer about three months later . . . dead as fuck. Which makes no sense, since it was a pretty good game and everyone praised it and apparently had a blast with it. Such is the life of the modern $65 "play it for a week and the world moves on to something else" game.
Hitman is a stealth game, you should have a certain amount acceptance and patience for it before coming to it.
Binary Domain is just fine.
SSX however I found infuriating you'd fall down pits or get flipped round and lots of bullshit. Just dosnt make it feel fun.
I had a bunch of problems with SSX, and mostly missed the online ship. I think I paid $10 or so for it when Best Buy had it on sale and it still felt like too much. I loved the way the single player was presented, but the actual playing never hooked me.
