I bought Hitman 3 on launch day. Still haven't beaten the first level. Having more fun watching people play it than actually playing it.

I LOVE this idea!! I was thinking before that speedrun races would be fun to watch from the GB crew. Hitman is an obvious choice.

I love how they go spicy to their own detriment. In Dartmore you can be quiet, nab that detective's outfit then you can go just about anywhere.

@baillie: Pretty sure it's due to packet loss, but the problem is a bit tricky to troubleshoot the way we're sending these feeds to Jan.

It's so dumb, I love it.

I like that Vinny looked at a game about being patient, crafty, and taking things slow, then decided "this, this is the one I will speedrun."

Vinny was born in the world of assassination, Brad merely adopted it

Brad had such a great start in Berlin going for the agent up top and getting his covert SMG. But then he made the mistake of running all the way back down and never using that gun. You can pick off four of the agents with it unnoticed right from that general high ground area he got it from.

Edit: Okay, maybe just three. It's hard to land a killing shot on the sniper from there.

I enjoyed that second one, Brad. Interesting to see the plot.

That lady did seem unpleasant.

While it's the third game and GB crew are still clueless about some mechanics like what being compromised means, these videos are extremely enjoyable nonetheless! Keep em coming!

(all targets from Paris to Carpathian Mountains with all the DLCs and Special Assignments go go go! or maybe some Escalation races?)

Another idea: pick one level that is well known to all participants and see who can get Silent Assassin / Suit Only faster.

Thank you!

seconds please!

@brad's way of playing pays off in Berlin - but I bet if they played the first two maps again he would be even better.

I'd love to see you guys take on the escalations.

When I started this, I thought they were playing this so much that they were good enough to do a SASO run or something.

Nope!

It was way better than that

Brad choosing to do a story mission while he's supposing to speedrun the level surprised me quite a bit. I feel for him, he has too much anxiety about acting quickly and doesn't know the maps well yet it seems, you can definitely get away with a lot in hitman when you know how but you have to be willing to push against the limits of the systems to get there. I hope he'll get crazier in future videos!

Great feature. I concur with everyone else that they should try doing escalations on a smaller map.

Brad trying to find the elevator while standing next to the elevator TWICE is one of the funniest and most frustrating things I've ever experienced.

It would be kinda fun if you get some amount of time shaved off for every star you get in the final rating.
