I'd like to play the new(est) Hitman game. I don't mind the episodic nature – I always wait so long to buy games anyway that it's no problem to just pick up the whole set. What I can't get over is that parts of the game have already disappeared forever behind time locks. Not just your standard seasonal events but actual story-based content. As Super Bunnyhop said, it's a "counterstrategy to smart and responsible spending", or in other words, it's designed to persuade people like me to spend more and spend sooner. Not happening. It's also bullshit that you can't progress with the game in offline mode, only replay parts you've already unlocked. If anything like that applies to the Remake I'm gonna be mad.
