IC - the story isn't really vital. If you're looking for some story though, it's best to play 2 and Contracts. Blood Money is it's own league, you can play it through without missing anything.

Yeah it is the shit. Normally I just walk upto the cunt in the pool and shoot him in the skull w/ a silenced baller.

See I don't like changing costumes on Blood Money. I do it rarely. I kick arse on the house of cards mission.

I'm addicted to this game so bad... it's eating up all my spare time...

 

Yeah, I went out onto the balcony in the Playboy mansion level, looked down and my mark was in the jaccuzzi with 4 chicks ordering drinks, this glass bottomed hot tub is built into the deck area so that the bottom looks down over the shoreline below some 100 plus feet. I took out my silenced 'baller and blasted a hole right in the bottom of that fucker... you wanna see a jaccuzzi drain in a hurry? Funniest hit I did yet. :)

 

 

Nick, and I think Don will agree, pick this one up... play it, actually the plot will tie in to the other 2 in terms of his true identity from previous games, but it won't ruin it. This installment is more like a story told by someone, Unusual Suspects style, and then comes full circle towards the end.

 

This game really is in a league of it's own, I'd agree with the Don on that one.

I mean the other 2 games are awesome, but truly appetizers to this one. Get it as soon as you can...you won't regret it.

 

 

I mean, you can decoy as a cowboy... how cool is that?

Truly is a fantastic game.

IC - Don't worry if you're buying it for PS2, I heard they've really config'd that fucker to run just aswell as any other console. I heard the graphics are tonned down just a slight, but not enough to make it an ugly game.

 

yes indeed, you can play as a Cowboy, or a Preacher for that matter!

Have you ever gone absolutely insane on '' Till death do us part '' ?

It's fun as fuck. I killed everyone but the pride once, using the pump action.

It's a bitch to crack DOJ, because of the fucking anti-crack program Blood Money uses. Of course it's avoidable, all you need is Daemon tools and the actual crack. Make sure you get the all purpose crack that you can actually mount.

 

You might also want to get the blood money update patch, it addresses a number of issues experienced with ATI cards and GForce 4's.

Ah good, so you're actually experienced!

 

You should be looking forward, there's plenty of fun in this one.

I can stop playing the casino level. It's becoming a problem.

 

MM - that dance w/ the devil level scares me.

It's fucked up, but I do like the ambience in Heaven. Dunno if you've dressed up as the CIA agent as yet, but it's fun walking around blasting party members with such a fucked up costume

I played for 8 plus hours straight last night and today ...

 

I had tried it, but yeah man, I love that level. It reminds me of an underground rave place in Montreal, called the Snake Pit. I love the pyrotechincs and the ambience...very real and macabre...

 

Hell is where it's at... think 8MM the movie! :yup: Check out the chicks having sex near the Torture Room!

 

 

here's a great pic from hitman forums of Tony getting his share in the new Life zone level...

Though many game pundits have called the face off between the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii the "next-generation console war," one of gaming's leading lights does not see the conflict in such terms.

 

"Nintendo is not working on a next-generation console," said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata in an interview with Japanese news service Nikkei Business' Tech On! spinoff. "'Next-generation' implies that the console is an extension of previous installments. We believe that extending our current line will not lead to larger markets, and could possibly even lead to smaller markets."

 

In the Tech On! interview, Iwata further distanced the Wii from other next-gen consoles with some familiar arguments. He said the increasing complexity of gameplay has put many novices off, and that the Wii was going after said novices with an interface that "would appeal to anyone."

 

As proof, Iwata cited the success of the DS as a reason for the Wii controller's existence. "When Nintendo opted for the dual screens for the DS, more people were shaking their heads," he said. "Yet the market turned out favorable to the DS. ... I feel that this had led to more people looking upon our new [Wii] controller favorably."

 

Still, the decision to go with the so-called "Wii-wand" form factor was a difficult one. "Some of our staff disagreed with changing it," said Iwata. "Yet after some hands-on time with the prototypes, we knew we had a working formula."

 

Iwata also told Tech On! that mass appeal was the main factor behind the decision to add a speaker to the Wii-wand. "We introduced it fairly recently," he said. "Households sporting 5.1 channel speakers will certainly be able to enjoy realistic sound, yet not all homes have such audio equipment."

 

Potential Wii-owners will likely be most interested in Iwata's comments on WiiConnect24, the Wii's online network. Unlike Xbox Live, which makes users download demos, WiiConnect24 will automatically deliver Wii and DS demos to any connected console--presumably at the user's discretion

 

"Let's say your Wii is connected to the Internet in a mode that allows activation on a 24-hour basis," explains Iwata. "This would allow Nintendo to send monthly promotional demos for the DS, during the night, to the Wii consoles in each household. Users would wake up each morning, find the LED lamp on their Wii flashing, and know that Nintendo has sent them something. They would then be able to download the promotional demo from their Wiis to their Nintendo DSes."

 

I'm loving Nintendo more an more everyday.

 

 

 

 

In a video interview with Kikizo, Microsoft's Peter Moore states, "Nobody is concerned anymore about backwards compatibility. We under promised and over delivered on that."

 

Yeah, and someday monkeys will fly out of my ass. As a side note I was at gamestop and asked how many X-box games can you play on the 360. They said only a handfull and for some reason you can play the Barbie game while the games worth playing you can't. I'm glad I don't own a shitbox anymore.

ive wondered about that, i dont hear as much talk about backwards compatibility and i found that odd, does the general market not care as much about this option as i do? Its the reason small things like the Wii also serving as an emulator get me hyped: i dig old games too.

 

So, Nintendo's gonna assume i leave shit on over night and send me traiers on all kindsa shit? im sure there's an option to say "no sports tittles, please" but its still an odd variant. Anyway, keep the news comin, NT.

Nick, do it, then run right out and get this one, fucking sweet... as far as gunplay and mechanics of the game play...

 

it is how you wanna play... stealthy for the high ratings and coin or go in guns blazing in a blaze of fury.

 

The fucking wedding level is a repeat of Kill Bill if you open up during the ceremony man... funny shit.
