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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
