The Contract Is On: Hitman - Absolution

My relationship with Hitman and his latest subtitle is one of love at fifth sight. It hasn't been a whirlwind romance, instead starting with something more like a few gentle but malodorous gusts of disappointment, but now I think we're just about ready to snuggle again. The Contracts mode, with its freeform hits, could have been designed to twang at my heartstrings and with David Bateson's back on vocal duties whispering sinister somethings into my ear, I'm ready to be impressed. I wrote about Contracts in a hotel room, eschewing offers of German beer in favour of typing excitedly about simulated murders. Here's an eighteen minute video very similar to what was shown at Gamescom.

Hitman: Absolution is out November 20th. There are an intimidating number of very interesting games happening soon.
