Hi there, I started to play the Kane & Lynch series and after I finished both games I decided to continue with Absolution since all these 3 games have the same dark vibes that I love so much.
Then I notice something. Kane has the nose broke, so that means the events takes place after the prison bus break out. Then there is the bag next to him so that means it must be before the first heist on the bank.
But looking at Lynch he got the same outfit\appearance form K&L 2 including the sport glasses where meanwhile in the first game he had Aviator style glasses.
Then, many missions after this encounter, you find Kane in the prison cell writing the letter to Jenny without having a broken nose. A moment where he still doesn’t know Lynch.
I guess I’m looking too much into this and it must be a detail that escaped at IO.
Speaking about these 3 games, after playing them I like to believe they are their own trilogy.
They are unite by the same dirty, greedy and dark atmosphere that takes you into those real miserable places out there in the world. The studio back then did an amazing job to bring those aspects to life and I have to say about that scene in K&L 2 where they are cut and Xiu gets rapped… That one was very well dramatically made. I don’t know if there is anything like this out there.
Truly an amazing game.
