Damn it you got to that joke quicker than I did.
I get what you mean and I appreciate the feedback. Well the parts that aren’t braggadocio. But still…
Mate, I think this is a brilliant post. You’re so spot on. I especially love the part about Cassidy understanding soft power.
I didn’t think I would have so much positive reviews on this, so thanks Doom. One of the things I like is that IO seem to have recognised that spycraft and security occupations has changed so much since we hit the digital age. There are three things I think (greatly) facilitated the development of spies: regal diplomacy, mutually assured destruction and computers
If ANY of you say Dawood is your least favorite target your argument and opinion is invalid.
Well, fuck, alright. Put me back in my place. Nolan Cassidy <3
You can still hate Nolan Cassidy if you want. If I did truly change your mind then that is good. If I didn’t then you can loathe him for other reasons. My intention was to clear misconceptions not to indoctrinate you into some Cult of Cassidy.
As I said his personality is normal and is overshadowed by others, he does have a small route (but I feel his paranoia justifies it) and he does lack opportunities (but I fell that leaves room for creativity and the vault kill is one of the games best to me).
Just out of curiosity did I genuinely change your mind or were you being sarcastic?
His moustache is still shit.
Also, no, I wasn’t being sarcastic. I’m not entirely closed-minded.
Well any 'stach is bad in a Post-Skurky Hitmanverse.
I still get nightmares about when Dexter Slapped 47 with Skurkey’s rubber hand sex whip
Right, well, moving on. Fuck Sierra Knox.
Sierra has to be the worst target by a long shot in this game and the last. Can’t stand that they put her in a car that does the same thing for so long and being a Suit Only player, it really ruins the entire mission for me.
Wow, thanks. I wasn’t saying you were close-minded at all just so we are clear. Like I said Cassidy is not issue free but he is far from the bottom of the list for me.
If you hadn’t have said “suit only”, I would’ve just suggested disqualifying someone. But… yeah. That sucks.
I don’t know if Elusive Targets count, but if they do, at least gameplay wise, The Revolutionary was kinda bad. All the guy did was sit in this shack. He didn’t move a single time once he entered it.
I mean, I didn’t think they counted but I can’t see why they wouldn’t… The Revolutionary actually pissed me off quite a bit as well. Had to constantly restart so I could have him close to the starting location for a poison kill.
I fucked up and got shot trying to disguise as a guard. That was before I knew how to restart too, and i’m still slightly annoyed about it because I totally could have restarted before I died.
3-months-ago me is not a very smart person.
It’s happened to us all, I would imagine. I only ever failed one Elusive Target in Season One by making that same mistake. Never again. Ever.
Sorry, but that’s my line, and I already went on a rant stating that he is my least favorite and, why near the top. Seriously, screw Dawood Rangan.
