What a year this has been for PC throwbacks. We’ve had the revival of the XCOM series, the reimagining of the Thief/Deus Ex-style immersive gameplay in Dishonored, and coming in November we’ve got Hitman: Absolution, a return to the multi-path, open-ended sandbox of mayhem and a character we haven’t seen in six years. IO Interactive and Square Enix have sent over a developer diary showing off all the hard work into creating dynamic audio experiences, not only with immersive sound effects or a haunting score, but also with believable dialog. Hit the jump for the full video, be sure to check out our review when it hits on November 20th, the same day the game releases on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
I've been gaming since my dad made the bad decision of buying me a Nintendo when I was four years old. Every day I'd find myself with my face glued to a TV screen, punching away at buttons, getting furious with Bowser, Dr. Wily, and those freakin' birds in Ninja Gaiden. Since then I have failed to get my parents to play any board game with me, I sold my full copy of Earthbound with box and guide for $300 to some dude in Austria for rent money, and I still believe in Nintendo even after all these years.
