I could happily watch Vinny play this game for hours. I'm currently mastery level 16 on Dubai, trying to get to 20.

Vinny trying to do all 3 games in an hour sounds insane but that first level went really well so now I believe.

Huh, I never really looked at the word assassin closely enough.

Vinny's a speedrunner now!

I think to do it in under an hour Chongqing might need to be a starting point exception. There's a starting point that doesn't give a disguise but makes the data core optional, the data core thing and end sequence could just take too much time. Also I'm so curious how quick you could make it through the train, I tried to do it quick earlier and it still took me 15 minutes lol

If Vinny wants to have the best chance possible of doing this he shouldn't restrict himself to starting equipment and the original starting zone. He should use whatever he needs to and start where ever to make it happen. Different starting zones can help a lot, people are doing 9 second runs on Dubai by starting at the entrance.

I'm liking this Hitman speedrun format. I also want Brad to do his version of it too. Maybe Brad and Vinny can compete for the fastest times.

Counting all the main locations between 1-3, there's 20 of them. I'm not sure there's a way to squeeze all that in one hour, even when using all the gadgets and best starting locations. But I will gladly have Vinny prove me wrong & enjoy watching him trying to accomplish this task!

I can't believe we get to watch history being made, as Giant Bomb posts the world's first attempt at the Hitman 3 Vinny% speedrun.

Thank you Vinny.

This was very entertaining to watch as I recently finished the game and tried to be as meticulous as I could when completing all of the missions, this is the complete opposite of that which was fun to watch. My jaw dropped once he got the first target on the first map because of how fast that was.

So I haven’t looked at any Hitman speed runs, so I don’t know how much glitching and stuff is involved when people beat missions in like under a minute, but if you could beat each mission in under three minutes, you could finish the trilogy in under an hour.

I feel like achieving that would require a lot of replaying to learn absolutely everything and probably/definitetly some glitchy jank too. I hope Vinny manages to keep it fun for for plenty of episodes before it becomes too frustrating, like mentioned on the Beastcast.

This is good.

I would also love it if they could somehow combine this so other members of the crew could play along. In another thread, I proposed the idea of HITMAN horse, where Vinny/Alex/Brad/et. al. would go into contracts mode and design a hit that the others then had to replicate or else they get a letter. Last person to spell HITMAN is the winner.

Maybe they could combine the two? Make a contract, but it's something that has to be completed in under an hour.

Is this supposed to be premium? There isn't a premium star from the main page, and also the other party of ones released today are not premium.

That would certainly explain why he seemed to refuse to use Hitman vision and relied solely on the map to find his targets.

@scylo: The data core is always optional after beating the level once. My best bet would be to do it sniper style by luring both targets out with the drone mission story?????

The full game speed run world records for each individual game is under 10 minutes. So they theoretically could all be done within 30 minutes.

I don't think that's a realistic goal to reach but I will enjoy watching Vinny improve his time for as long as it is fun to him.
