Something i realised i want to be the norm after playing the elusive target are targets that don't show up in instinct mode...at least not innitially. So you actually have to find them yourself. Then once you do see them, diana will do her usual "this is x, his hands are deep in criminal activity...kill him via any means necessary...blah blah blah" then the target glows red in intinct mode and can be tracked.

It makes no sense that 47 can detect exactly where the target is, through multimple walls, from 3 miles away. It would help give a reason to explore and find interesting means to kill without it feeling contrived. just happening across areas and items while you're looking for your target. Rather than just bee lining straight to them.

There are a lot of things like that that i would change about this game.

If you can't turn off either the target location or even Instinct mode itself, doesn't higher difficulties or the highest one make your Instinct mode not locate the target through walls or disable it completely?

I don't have the game and I'm waiting for the 100% complete game release in December, if I'm not mistaken. Just asked because in most games you either can turn off these things or they are disabled in a higher difficulty setting - Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell games, Rise of the Tomb Raider, etc.

What I want is no hand holding "Opportunities". I guess they were afraid the broader audience which is by the way brain dead would miss them all and that's a dollar's work they fail to show.

The games comes out next year on disc, there are no difficulty modes, and while you can turn off instincts mode entirely...that isn't what i want. I just don't want to see a glowing red target 3 miles away the second you start the level. The instinct mode for the rest is fine. Its proximity based, the closer you are to someone the clearer they appear, and its only useful at a distance lf about 15ft...but for some reason the decided to make the targets visible all the time, no matter the distance. Its kinda dumb.

This stupid 6th sense BS is keeping me away from this. I love Hitman games, but I hate dumbing down tendencies. No satisfaction at all.

to be fair, all hitman games have had a sixth sense due to the map and being able to track exactly where everyone is in a level. BUT, it was an inconvenience since you had to break immersion and remove yourself from the game to check it. in this game it's maybe a bit too convenient to just press a button and see through walls, which isnt ideal, but it works quite well besides my complaint above.

Damn, I think I'm okay with these settings as long as I'm playing as 47

Say what you want but for some people like me episodic release is the best model they could come up with. Nowadays I struggle with continuously playing long games if it's not on weekends, and a new level every 2-3 months is just perfect.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (10 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (11 Hours ago)
