Awesome: Hitman's next elusive assassination target is Gary "Wildcard" Busey

"Speak into the microphone, squid brain!"

We haven’t been covering Hitman’s Elusive Targets on a week-by-week basis. I figure if you’re playing Hitman you already know the deal: Every week or so, Square tasks you with tracking down and killing a random NPC on a random map. You have one chance to succeed, and if you screw it up then the mission disappears.

The schedule’s been somewhat unpredictable, so other outlets have taken to writing “The next Elusive Target is live!” stories. That’s not our thing. But what is our thing is “Really Stupid Gimmick Ideas,” so it is with some small amount of pleasure I write this story about how the next Elusive Target is Gary Busey.

Yes. Gary Busey, the actor. Now known as “The Wildcard.”

Hitman - Gary Busey

Fans were polled on whether they wanted Gary Busey or Gary Cole, and really, it’s an obvious choice. You’ll have one week to take him out on the sunny streets of Sapienza, starting this Thursday at 5 a.m. Pacific.

More of this please, Hitman. Not every Elusive Target needs to be a gimmick character, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun. Vin Diesel? The Rock? Arnold Schwarzenegger in full Predator camo? Tim Curry in his Rocky Horror Picture Show garb? Or how about we kill the actor who played Agent 47 in that terrible Hitman: Agent 47 movie Square greenlit? Endless possibilities.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
