Boom! Headshot. If you make a drinking game out of how many times you say that while watching the following video you might have to call in sick for work because of the hangover you’re going to be suffering from the following morning. Heck, that doesn’t even begin to describe just how painful it is to watch some of the sniper shots rolled out in a near-seven minute video from the recently released Sniper Elite 3.
I’m not going to waste a lot of words because I just want all of the x-ray shots to sink in like someone digging their finger deep into your earlobe after giving it a good saliva bath. Check it out, courtesy of Ak87Berlin.
Ohhhhh…. did you see that shot at the 1:21 mark? Hold on, hold on. Let’s rewind that, let’s stop it and let’s look real good at it.
Yep, that guy just got the fastest, most undeserved sex operation you could possibly imagine.
It looks like Harry just got turned into Harriet.
I guess someone knocked his balls out of the court.
Oh look, I Just got a telegram from 100 B.C., it looks like they need a eunuch for the history books.
Anyway, Sniper Elite 3 recently released for the old-gen, wheelchair bound consoles and for the new-gen, pristine and clean eighth-gen consoles (sans the Wii U).
The review scores for the game aren’t half bad, but we all know how review scores can go, right? The best bet is to find your favorite YouTuber (like Angry Joe) and see how well a game like this plays out. Alternatively, just watch a Twitch stream and ask some questions. That also seems to work.
Based on what I’ve watched of the game, it’s far from realistic and if you’re looking for a near arcade-style sniping game then that’s what you’re going to get with Sniper Elite 3 since there doesn’t appear to be any bolting on the guns, no recoil and no weight mechanics to change the way the firing mechanics work. That’s all assuming you like that kind of stuff in shooter games.
You can pick up a physical or digital copy of the game right now for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 or PS4. Need more info? Pay a ballsy visit to the game’s official website.
