Whoa, whoa, hold on a second here...you have to beat all these challenges (and presumably the level) to unlock higher difficulties?

You have to reach mastery level 20 to unlock professional difficulty, which means completing a bunch of challenges (since they give mastery xp).  You don't have to complete every single challenge, there is more xp in all the challenges for a given level than you need to get to lev 20.  But yes, you can't just start the game on professional difficulty, you need to unlock it.

I hate games that lock difficulties behind other difficulties, and it's especially garbage to do it on a Hitman game, of all game series.

I'm not a fan of locking difficulties behind lower difficulties either, but roughly 50% of games that have multiple difficulties do that (if not more).  :shrugz:

For most games, it usually doesn't matter, though, because the higher difficulties are terrible, and offer very little in the way of making things more difficult outside of increasing the damage sponginess of enemies. If, however, the best experience comes on one of the higher difficulties (...and for Hitman, I believe it does for at least a certain segment of its players), then you'd just be shooting yourself in the foot by locking it away. So of course, that's exactly what they did.

I feel kind of insulted here.  For level 4 of this particular escalation in Sapienza they added a "wild card" which alters some mission objectives.

What are the changes you ask?  Before I had to kill 2 targets both with a sniper rifle.  Now I still had to kill both targets with a sniper rifle, only they had to be headshots.  As if I wasn't killing them with headshots before.  IO Interactive, please, what kind of sloppy rookie assassin do you think I am?  Give me a little bit of credit.  :facepalm:

I think that its fair on games like DMC where it would be impossible to beat a difficulty without having unlocked all the powers and upgrades beforehand.

I did it!  My greatest HITMAN accomplishment thus far.  The loadout:

The exit (still wearing my stylish as **** Requiem suit):

Silent Assassin Suit Only on an elusive target.  I am a shadow in the night.  I am everywhere yet nowhere at the same time.  I am the inevitability of death.

Supergiant definitely don't disappoint in the visuals department.  FOr now the Steam Overlay is not working in the game (on Linux, at least) hence the Steam screenshot function doesn't work.  I missed a bunch of cool screenshots because of this until I realized this and started using trusty ol' Print Screen.  I'll get more screenies soon.

I cannot overstate how amazing the artwork in this game is.  Easily Supergiant's prettiest game to date.

I think AoW3 also but I quit that game on the first mission and never went back so I could be wrong

It was just a guess, you're probably right. :p

It is AoW3.
Not a game for everyone. It did a lot of things right for those of us who loved AoW, AoW2 and AoW:SM.

still playing Wildlands on a regular basis, I'm nowhere near done with the story (about half way through), because I just like driving or flying around the map clearing out enemy bases and checkpoints. 

 

this actually may be the game that portrays, what being CIA's Ground Branch operative is like, most accurately. I find myself leading local guerrillas into battle and relying on them more than on my own team mates (the latter being almost completely useless anyway) almost on every objective. 

 

first I soften the enemy up with a mortar barrage, then I send in a small squad of guerrillas to create a diversion on one flank, and finally conduct a full-on assault from the opposite direction with two other squads. works great every time. 

 

but enough talk, here are some pics.

this was an interesting moment. I had to tail a vehicle without attracting any attention, and it just happened to merge with a cartel convoy delivering drugs somewhere (the vehicle in question is between the truck and the trailing Humvee in the pic). usually I destroy these convoys, but this time I had to restrain myself to not fail the mission, so we drove in a column for a couple of miles, until the target separated from the convoy. I believe this is what they call "emergent gameplay"

 

also, had to kidnap someone's girlfriend
