Hitman Absolution
I guess I missed this one at E3, because I just noticed under the news feed in Steam after buying Hitman:Blood Money during the summer sale. Blood money was an awesome game, so hopefully this new one is even better. The cover based stealth seems a little bit like Splinter Cell...

Hitman: Sniper Challenge now available for PC users with pre-order

by Stephany Nunneley
IO Interactive has announced the launch of the Hitman: Sniper Challenge for PC users, which is a sniper experience available to play the moment Hitman: Absolution is pre-ordered. PS3 and Xbox 360 users have already had their chance in the spotlight, now itís time for PC users to start scoring. The PC version of Hitman: Absolution will be shown for the gamescom later this month.

Anyone else preorder? Greenman had a good deal a few weeks back, 20% off, plus with store credit it was less than $30. Not sure if they have the sniper challenge keys or not...

edit: well it seems like Greenman is not getting Sniper Challenge keys, I still don't have one, yet the version it says I've preordered is the Professional Edition. Serious fail on Eidos's part if you ask me: they say any preorder gets it, yet only Gamestop is listed as an official retailer, but Steam players have it on the promised release day and Greenman and other digital sources are screwed.

Bateson is back. About time too.

You guys realize you can get this for $29 on Greenman, right?

Pretty sweet deal, but apparently the review from PC Gamer is going to be pretty poor (hasn't been released yet but the supposed review was posted on Reddit). I think I'm going to wait on this one. I also discovered this website for pre-orders that is extremely cheap. Has anyone ever used this? I'm guessing you get Russian or Asian keys or something?

Never heard of that site, personally I wouldnt trust it, I know GMG is safe, as is gamersgate, and gamefly. Have bought from them all.
And that guy's review on pcgamer is known to be biased, apparently he gave maxpayne3 a 55, there's a thread about it on steam,
Upcoming issue of PC Gamer claims new Hitman "is a mess" - Steam Users' Forums
I think I'll trust Eidos to make a quality product, and if not they'll fix it. At least my gut tells me. Too bad Borderlands DLC comes out that day too!
That reddit article is so old, it still says they dumped Bateson and Kyd which is wrong. And why is it in spanish?

So it's released on Steam now. Anyone try it?

I'm not down with the whole hot nun killing thing. It could be habit forming.

I had it going last night shortly after 7pm after it unlocked, then friends couldnt get it activated a few minutes after I started, so I kept playing when everyone else had to wait till midnight. Some achievements were locked on me, they didn't start unlocking again until today. Quite enjoying it though, on a fast system it sure looks pretty. The greenman deal is still on, worth it for fans.
