Is this an unofficial series? Brad and Dan play Hitman together?

Unless you're a blood bank, don't name your company Sanguine.

EDIT: "We find this truth to be self-evident: That butt needs a bomb."

Am I the only one that thinks the episodic idea is kind of smart?

Think of it this way: You spend $15 and if the game isn't your cup of tea then you can at least breathe easier that you didn't spend $60 on it.

I want to watch this but I probably won't until I play the game myself. Too short of a game (at the moment) and I love Hitman too much to have it spoiled.

this looks great but i'm not sure to wait for full edition or get it now... i mean howmuch content can there be for 13 bucks? this isnt stardew valley

I hate that they just show you where to go , and i like that you can turn that off , but i would rather have that be tied to your difficulty level so everyone that plays the same difficulty has the same experience. And then maybe onto that they could add a "tick whatever you want" difficulty like Thief (2014) did.

After watching the last Quick Look, I dusted off Hitman: Absolution from within my mountain of Steam games I never played, and have to say that I had a good time playing it.

I'm cool with it.

I paid full price for Blood Money, beat it, and proceeded to play A House of Cards about a thousand times. And then every time I went back to that game, I played A House of Cards another hundred times. I got well more than full price out of just that mission, so I'm pretty sure $15 for this will keep me entertained. Especially when the price/hour equivalent of other forms of entertainment is taken into account.

Your mileage may vary though.

@theseguy77: Agreed. I thought (stupidly) for the longest time that they didn't get along. But recently their quick looks together have been a lot of fun.

Looks gooood. I think I'm now bummed over the episodic part just because it won't allow for a "Dan & Brad play Hitman" feature. Well, this particular Hitman at least.

I'd tentatively be interested in coming back and QLing the subsequent maps as they're released. Definitely gonna play all of them one way or the other, this game is good.

20 minutes in and I just want to say that I really hope this becomes a feature. It's a lot of fun watching Brad and Dan play through these opening missions, and as someone who doesn't have much interest in playing Hitman, it would be a great way to see the content.

Once a month for the new game (or whatever the schedule was) or even go back and play them from the beginning.

As a Premium Member I think I speak for everyone when I ask for a "Brad & Dan play Hitman" Series <3 Brad plays while Dan advises in a similar way to MGScanlon (also they need to play it on Hard) :D Man that would be so good! You could call it 'HitDan Brad-Money' XD

This looks exactly like what I wanted from Absolution. Some hardcore ass complex AI routines and playing dress up.

The hand-holdy stuff isn't to my tastes but I'll turn them off and hope that the core systems aren't built around them breaking the game. So keen now.

Lovely, now we have to pay for demo's. Oh how the times changed from shareware where you got a substantial piece of content for free to test.

Going to watch this later today, but I think Dan and Brad could learn a thing or two from this video here from Eurogamer.

Warning: loads of spoilers about the many ways you can kill targets.

If we've learned anything from these last two Hitman videos, is that @brad is way too wishy-washy and not nearly confident enough to be a proper hitman. At least I definitely won't be hiring him to kill my enemies.
