Knives To Meet You: Hitman Absolution

Marketing is a funny old thing, by which I mean it's the sort of amusingly affable codger who will tell you anything you want to hear if you give him a handful of coin for his troubles. Conversely, sometimes he'll be hawking something awesome, say an actual magic carpet, but he'll insist on unpicking some of the ancient weave in order to stitch in a crude simulacrum of a woman, 80% chest, 20% backside. If you ask him why, he'll tell you such unsaucy sauciness is the only way to sell something as mundane as a mystical object. What I'm trying to say is, after the Contracts mode reveal, I'm happy to soar through the sky on Hitman's back no matter what Mr Marketing might say. Here's a new trailer.

That's actually quite a good trailer. Well done, Old Man Marketing, sometimes you're not such a bad sort after all.
