Of which you only need Blood Money, the other ones are varying degrees of... not as good as they could have been.

BM is clearly the high point of the series, but I had loads of fun with both Hitman 2 and Contracts too (never played the first one). BM might have the most refined mechanics, but there are some great scenarios in the other games.

I tried Codename 47 but the jank was a little too much. Also I think it crashed when I was exiting the first elevator.

Just FTR I think GMG's Blood Money requires their own client (Capsule) to download.

E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy is today's daily deal on steam. I wouldn't exactly recommend it, but if you can tolerate the frankly inexplicable plot and lore, it can be a pretty entertaining cyber ninja fantasy simulator. Maybe.

(Psi ops was kinda funny. "Psykers" can essentially have a 360 aoe blast if enemy is right next to you and i didn't notice my friend was right behind me.)

I have the feeling that I would've enjoyed EYE if I understood it. I relly tried but the lack of savegames and the whole confusing abilities and lore made it impossible for me to enjoy.
Also I started one of the story missions, got spotted for hundreds kilometers away, got killed and never understood how to continue said mission.

I actually really loved EYE. It is definitely not polished and the game doesn't make a lot of sense, but once you realize that you are playing something closer to the fourth episode of DOOM (Thy Flesh Consumed) than Deus Ex and you grab as much ammo and gear as you can carry, it all comes together and makes for some fun murdering. And I love how the inventory system makes every single re-arm feel like a montage from a movie.
And once you've gotten your gunplay high enough you can start playing with psyker abilities and magic and the like, which is also fun.
Also: Ugh. Apparently the devs changed where saves were stored but googling how to back stuff up still sends you to the old folder. So the saves I made a point of backing up before my reformat a few months back are gone. All because a dev refuses to use steam cloud saves...

If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

And yea the fish assassination is great, same with invading the ninja lair lol :D
All the levels were awesome in that game IIRC, and great weapons!
Kuala Lumpur; the pizza delivery to the basement, the fat guy in the bath (am I making this up?) and something else all based around the same skyscraper. (Edit: Looked it up, this was all Hitman 2)

I absolutely loved EYE Divine Cybermancy and might even be a bit of a fanboi when it comes to the game (which means, disregard all praise coming from me). It's certainly one of those older types of games, where you've got all the information at hand and the game isn't affraid to kill the player. This makes it seem daunting, even impenetrable. Do I really need to know that stat xyz increases another stat by dividing a base value through another stat, then multiplies it with a modifier from yet another stat and increases... yeah along those lines.
It certainly helps, at least in the beginning to have a good two second look at the stats, tell it to go fuck itself and just play the game. Same goes for the story. It actually does make sense, but not until you've basically beaten the game a couple of times and seen the alternate paths. Might not have been the best idea. True. But there's even a decent explanation why the maincharacter is such an idiot to begin with. To enjoy this game, you need to be able to roll with not understanding everything. This may seem anachronistic in these times of tutorials and overexplaining, but that's the way the game works. You also need to have some nostalgia for old first person shooters, at least for the early parts. Death is frequent. However if you stick with it, you'll get to feel like a real badass. Not one of those "I need to show restraint" superpowered guys. No, you're an all out imba death machine. A typical mid to late game scenario could play out like that:
You enter the street, a group of enemies is on the ground level, another group is upstairs. You remotely kill an enemy by teleporting right where he was. Now stending on a ledge you offer a nice katana to the face to the other guy nearby. He accepts by exploding into pieces. Activating cloak, you then hack a nearby cyberbrain, turning him hostile against his friends, followed by activating your Cyber Jump and soaring into the sky. Some poor goomba's head breaks your fall. He dies. Your dermal sheath implant protects you from the aftermath of firing the Excidium at close range. A 40 mm cannon that shoots explosive rounds and makes quick work of the rest.
Which is why I love the game. What it doesn't support is proper stealth play or any approach that can't be summarized by "come on, it's personal now". Personally, I found a few things fundamental to enjoying this game though:
1) Turn down spawnrate in the options. Purists will cry bloody vengeance, but there are still enough enemies to go 'round.
2) Set the AI to Stealth Friendly (this "solves" the onehit wonders on extreme ranges)
3) As soon as possible, research the medkit. You want it.
4) As soon as possible, buy the cloak. It's almost mandatory.

The developers of EYE are making a Warhammer FPS. Can't think of a better studio for the job. The player character feels ridiculously powerful.
11-01-2014, 08:45 PM #10374
But under no circumstances must you ever buy Absolution for more than Two Currencies.
And EYE is definitely worth it at that price, unless it isn't- there's no real way to know whether you'll like it til you play it. Good for you that there's a demo. Just don't expect it to be nice. It's an LSD-infused Half Life 1.5 mod crossed with a pen-and-paper RPG from another dimension.

Drox Operative, The Game They Don't Want You to Play, is 75% off and available for £3.74/€4.99.
12-01-2014, 04:12 PM #10377
I enjoyed what I played of Drox; the fact that I haven't played much beyond the demo has a lot more to do with my short attention span and reluctance to sink enough time into getting good at it than with the game. I don't regret buying it. Since the sale lasts for another 16 or so hours at time of writing, I'd suggest that anyone on the fence about it downloads the very generous demo from http://www.soldak.com/Drox-Operative/demo.html and/or reads Adam Smith's Wot I Think.
12-01-2014, 07:21 PM #10378
Yeah been waiting for a Drox sale, I see there's an expansion available as well from Soldak for 9.99 USD.

Drox is amazing - it's an ARPG in space but unlike other games which attempt that, this one WORKS
It has all the usual Soldak magic - the universe is alive around you, stuff happens whether you're there or not and you not doing things is as likely to have consequences as you doing stuff.
Everyone needs a Soldak game in their lives - Depths of Peril for RPG players who like tactical intrigue, Dins Curse for people who prefer a more direct 'dungeon explorer' and Drox if space is more your bag.

Pool Nation is the Steam Daily Deal. You absolutely want to buy it.
