All Hail ‘Hitman: Subtitle’

By Alec Meer on May 16th, 2011.

Because 'Hitman: Another One' would have been going too far

Morning, giggles. How’s every little thing? To start you off for the new week, let’s have a good old belly-laugh at leaked marketing materials for the mysterious Hitman: Absolution. Or, as these presumably work in progress box covers (via Kotaku) claim it’s called, “Hitman: Subtitle.” Y’know what, I’d have bought extra copies if it really was called that. There’s an honesty to it. “The bit after the colon doesn’t mean anything but people expect it – just put any old melodramatic guff in there.” So Hitman: Subtitle it must officially remain on RPS, forever. Coming up next – Red Faction: Sequel.

Bald Spot: Hitman 5′s Trailer And Title

By Alec Meer on May 10th, 2011.

Snicker

Here we go… After a flurry of rumour and ARG-based teasing, a comeback for the murderous man with the marvelous pate is now officially confirmed. We have a name – as has been series tradition since the third game, there’ll be no number in the title. This is not Hitman 5, but instead Hitman Absolution. But what will our stern Agent 47 be absolving himself of? Forgetting to put the bins out on time for the sixth week running, is my guess. Maybe it’ll be something to do with assassionation, though. Anyway! The first trailer, all 27 bloody seconds of it, is below.
