    Hitman 2 - November 13th, 2018

    What a shame. After saying I wouldn’t get round to playing this for a while I’ve ditched RDR2 for now and have been replaying the remixed Hitman 2016 missions in Hitman 2 and falling in love with it all over again. Lord knows how many times I’ve completed Paris now but I’m still finding new things all the time. It will be sad if this is the end for the series but the fact is with Hitman 2, the Hitman 2016 legacy levels plus at least two DLC maps to come, there is enough Hitman content here to give fans of the series hundreds of hours of playtime. Think back a few years. Back then we thought we’d be consigned to playing the Blood Money levels over and over for ever. I’m extremely thankful after Absolution that the series got back on track and became the best it’s ever been. I honestly never thought we’d get this much Hitman goodness. I’m going to get the Gold edition as soon as my MS reward points arrive.

    Wow, I didn’t realise an external 5400 drive would be as fast (if not faster) than the internal drive. I’d been copying my ‘in use’ games to the internal assuming it’d be quicker!

    Surely everyone does that? I just did the mobile bing search and the default content for the search field is “popular on bing” and if you look at the search suggestions it’s all “popular on bing 15, popular on bing 16” which clearly comes from people farming points.

    It’s all part of the plan. MS will start selling the harvested discs on eBay in 15 years for £££. Also, games are just zeroes and ones and ripping them from discs hasn’t presented much of a problem in the past. If the data stayed on the disc then I would’ve thought that would be far more fragile.

    I bet they pop just as the MS £5 reward goes goes back up to full price.

    I did one a couple of days ago and the rest last night, nothing yet. I assume MS points are functionally identical to XBL points?

    Hitman 2 - November 13th, 2018

    Totally agree. Hitman is one of my favourite franchises ever and I adored Hitman 2016. I've followed IO's fortunes closely and was obviously elated when they were able to survive being ditched by Squeenix and retain the Hitman rights. I'm probably going to get the Gold edition within a few days but to be honest it's mainly a show of support for IO at this point, not because I have any intention of getting stuck into the actual game what with me being balls-deep in RDR2. It's a terrible time to release a AA title like this. Presumably it can't have been that expensive to develop. I assume a lot of it was done by the time SE dropped them. I dunno how much distribution costs, though. At least they have a renewed platform on which to release DLC.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Have you turned GPS off in the menus by any chance?

    It's also the case that, as big as the map is, it's still nowhere near big enough to create the illusion that a gang of outlaws could somehow be lying low somewhere in it. In that Chapter 2 mission where the Pinkertons show up to threaten Arthur, if they just looked up a bit they could probably see the camp from where they were standing. Just like how Martson's home and family ended up being a few hundred yards from one of the main routes in the game. It doesn't really make sense when the map is actually only the size of Harrow.

    Are there 6 chapters? Are they of roughly equal length?

    Cheers, I've done that. It's quite a cool little challenge. It'd be much better if the reward steps popped immediately in a rewarding fashion rather than there being an indeterminate lag and no push notification of when you'd done it.

    You don't have to do them in order do you? I got a FH4 one while I was downloading Wolfenstein The New Order.
