I've actually never seen so many people from an AAA studio respond so childishly to people questioning marketing choices as I have with this game, the game better review well, I'd hate to see how they react to people taking any issue with the finished product (probably something like the Suicide Squad actors saying that people who don't like the film aren't real people). Augs Lives Matter (Jim Sterling's Article) Other thoughts were given from multiple Bioware, Microsoft, Fallout/Far Cry developers, Paizo, and people who have written for Gamespot, IGN, Vice, Polygon, Giant Bomb, etc talking about marketing, poorly co-opting real world messages when you don't have confidence to create your own setting. Most who talked about it got/are getting outraged, troll, or racist responses. Always weird to see people who clearly don't care about video games spend so much on gaming sites or harassing critics and developers for large corporations, if the developers can't intelligently stand behind their own work no reason for random people giving them money to have a tantrum over it. Sad to see, I was looking forward to more intelligent commentary, but if you aren't being paid well it isn't healthy for most people to deal with gaming communities and reactionaries so it's understandable.

  7. Well tough, you'll be waiting 'till 2017. Even if you pre-orderd First off, full credit to The Static C on XBL for letting me know about this. He told me reckoning this was worthy of an "Angry Rant". I know Joe won't hear about this through this topic, but I felt it was worth talking about anyway. Here's the text from the VideoGamer.com article I found and I don't think I've read this caliber of bullshit from a publisher/developer in long time, especially the highlighted paragraph; http://www.videogamer.com/ps4/hitman/news/hitman_disc_release_delayed_to_2017_2.html I know this basically the same way that Life is Strange was released but the difference here is; Life is Strange was built from the start be an episodic game like a TellTale title and it works well like that, even though I still insist that episodes are annoying even considering that. Hitman should be a straight up single game like it was meant to be in the first place. Life is strange releasing on disk was an afterthought, a collection, and had a few extra bells and whistles. It was never intended to be published this way, it's just an extra alternative for after the game was already long out. They announced this delay on Hitman one day before the game comes out digitally, ONE FUCKING DAY! They shouldn't have let people pre-order physical version at all or at the very least let the word about this delay long before now, like when they first announced this was going to this bullshit episodic platform. I mean, what more is there to say other than...
