I thought was tired of Hitman videos. But then this happened.

Specifically Vinny's segment. Holy shit.

Never listen to Dan. He barely understands how the game works.

Three Things:

(1) In hindsight, it would have been really cool (like, REALLY COOL) to see them hold some sort of contest before this where 4 community members make a specific contract for each of them. This is essentially what contracts mode was made for; kill so-and-so with this weapon while disguised as this person. You could even include a wild card in the mission description - "Also, Mr. Gerstmann, we'd like you to set off an explosion in the catwalk room for no goddamned reason." It at least would have been interesting if they had made contracts for each other before this.

(2) Dan's rule about not being allowed to subdue a target before killing them is some major BS. If you're smart enough to subdue someone, hide their body, change into the disguise/weapon you need, and make your way back to finish them off, you should totally be permitted to do that.

(3) I'm obviously nitpicking in the interest of giving constructive criticism. This was still fantastic.

I fucking love how Brad is just the worst actor ever. It gets me every time. I imagine that's exactly how I would act.

If they weren't so scared of guns they would have a much easier time with this game.

When Vinny casually threw the knife over the ledge, I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

Vinny is the new king of Hitman. I totally lost it when he threw the knife off the balcony.

That Vinny Kruger run was magical. Laughed my ass off. If he pulled the whole thing off it would have been the greatest christmas miracle. Never change Vinny.

I really don't understand why they never shoot anyone. The guns aren't that awful to use. They're actually alright.

How is that after all this time Jeff is the only one who pays even the slightest bit of attention to the minimap when he's played the game only a couple times?

For real though...this video is the best. I cracked up like half a dozen times just watching Vinny's run alone.

Oh wow

Hitman is the new Metal Gear Scanlon. It just keeps on delivering.

This might be the best thing they've done with this game.
