Humble THQ Bundle

Anyone not yet aware of it should take a look at the Humble THQ Bundle ( http://www.humblebundle.com/ ). There are several excellent games are in the core bundle, and Saints Row: The Third is the bonus game if you pay above average for the bundle. Soundtracks for some of the games are also included....

Re: Hitman Absolution

Would the 360 version of Blood Money be the best one to get (on console, at least). Don't think it was released on PS3 was it? You're absolutely right that it is currently only available on PC (incl. Steam), PS2, Xbox and Xbox 360. The 360 version is excellent and the controls have been fitted to a...

Re: Hitman Absolution

It's all on the Glacier engine, so hopefully a few tweaks here and there are possible. That said, the Steam versions still don't work for a lot of people with no word from IO on any attempts to fix the issues, so they might just be upscaled ports. We'll have to see.

Re: Hitman Absolution

Both Chinatown levels, the Terminus Hotel and the Streets of Hope are pretty good in terms of exploration, freedom of movement and the largest number of hit options. But, yeah, Blood Money is a masterclass in level design for sandbox environments. Silent Assassin too, but that's quite tough to go ba...

Re: Hitman Absolution

I've always liked Agent 47. This could be a case of Stockholm Syndrome a la David Hayter's Solid Snake, but David Bateson's voice is synonymous with 47 in my eyes, and I enjoy his performances. As for Absolution, I can count on one hand the number of missions that reached the heady heights of Silent...

Re: WIN Hitman: Absolution Professional Edition [CLOSED]

I couldn't agree more with Leon's chosen winner. There were several good entries, but Wizard Of Odd's brought the biggest smile to my face, as extreme as it was! As Leon said, PM your address and I'll dispatch as quickly as Peter Molyneux will dispatch a restraining order if he ever reads that post....

Re: Game Suggestions for the Podcast

Minerva's Den is on par with Fort Frolic as my favourite part of the BioShock games. I can't wait to replay it before the shows.
The depth of narrative in Minerva's Den is astounding, and the condensed pacing (that could have been an Achilles' Heel) actually served to the benefit of the story.

We got into the nature of games and when the line is crossed into interactive experience during the Dear Esther show (Issue 34).
