Reqiuem: MU

Well, looks like Megaupload is no more.

I suppose those of us who used it for legally uploading files can just go fuck ourselves.

For the time being, all the mods I've released here on the blog are apparently un-released, until I find another decent file-sharing service to upload them to. Once I have found such, I will update the relevant posts with corrected links.

Edit: and a thought just occurred, it is apparently the entire Mega* network, and not just Upload -- I just checked Druuler's comics (images hosted on Megapix) and they're inaccessible, too.

I have to wonder how many legitimate files this axed.

Hitman: Absolution

For many years I've been a considerable fan of the Hitman series of stealth assassination games. While the series has been saddled with poor controls that effectively make it impossible to play it like an FPS; the games are nonetheless glorious -- perfect "hits" often end up as orchestras of planning, timing, and a little luck.

It's been some years since the last title (Blood Money) was released, and with its ending there was no doubt in anyone's mind that the saga of everyone's favorite genetically engineered assassin wasn't over.

I was reading around this internet this morning, and came across some info on the upcoming title.

David Bateson will not be voicing Agent 47.

Vivienne McKee, who has always voiced 47′s handler, Diana, has been replaced by Marsha Thomason.

The original soundtrack for the game is composed by Peter Kyed and Peter Peter, replacing the game's previous composer, Jesper Kyd.

The new title will feature an online or possibly multiplayer option unlike previous titles.

Different 47. Different Diana. Different composer. Multifuckingplayer mode.

Multi-motherfucking-player. In a Hitman game.

If anyone needs me, I'll be quietly sobbing in front of my altar to Silent Assassin.
