    Yeah, the maps are huge. Unreasonably so.

    Could do with better compression.

    I think that textures are unreasonably huge. Doom 2016 updates were also more than 100GB.

    Look at Skyrim for example. It has reasonable size for such huge world and still looks amazing.

    I'm somewhat annoyed at how everyone I kill has a laundry list of reasons why they deserve to die in the nu games. It's not that I'm against killing evil people, but I don't need to have Diana spell out how they kick puppies for a living. The environments and ambient dialogue should be enough to convey that...

    You have always killed bad people in Hitman, though. I sort of get what you mean but they're just using voiced dialogue more instead of text to convey things since that's how things are done nowadays.

    I've complained of the same in the previous thread, I think. If you take cues from actual assassinations, things are a lot more morally grey. I choose to pretend Hitman is a parody of a 90s TV spy series.

    Loving the new engine - I subdued scores of bad guys in Colorado, and now loading a savegame crashes the game. 8 GB DDR3. This never happened to me with the 2016 Hitman.

    This is like retroactively episodic. Now you can buy Miami level (plus a limited chance to kill Sean Bean and some silly things) for $12: https://www.ioi.dk/hitman-2-miami-pack/

    It's certainly a strange scheme, but I think this is just a way for them to gateway drug people into buying the full game later.

    I'm almost done with mastering Miami, just 3 locations left to discover, and a few discovery challenges to complete. Overall, I like the Season 2 locations better, although my favorite - Sapienza - is still unsurpassed.

    The feeling in Sgail where I snatched the necklace without anyone noticing after doing all the preparation work, it was a genuine feeling of achievement I can only compare with opening the vault in The Bank mission in Thief 2.

    There is also a patch out today. Pigeons now stay killed and don't respawn after loading a game. Also, there is a "Silent Assassin-eligible" indicator so if you lose chances for Silent Assasin you can just reload. I imagine it will be very handy.

    You can wear the disguise of the dude that owns it (can't remember his name) and just pick it up (after disabling electricity).

    Paris is still my favourite, probably because it was a really long time since I played a Hitman game, and I was surprised how good it was so I ended up getting really obsessed with Paris and replayed it a ton.

    Sapienza is good but for some reason I just HATE non-assassination objectives so that kind of kills it for me.

    Holy fuck they took a long time to implement this.

    I loved the fashion show too, but it felt a bit too symmetrical, and Sapienza was a killer in every way.

    I've been wondering what's the point of retarded rewards like the blueberry muffin or the blue flamingo outfit.

    Escalations. Besides that, there isn't a "point" to many things. Not really about why, but rather why not.

    Why not make items that have a point to existing? Instead of having "Lockpick", "Lockpick MkII", "Classic Lockpick"

    Because you eventually run out of ideas and art guys need to be put to work somehow. Practically everything in the game already fills every role.
    The mark2 stuff was dumb. The classic lockpick is just a cosmetic you get for a challenge.
