Liked everything i saw aside from the xray vision and the conviction style "kill everyone" button. I dont intend to use either, i just hope the game doesnt punish you for not wanting to use it. Conviction did, hence why i hated it.

Well.. you are punished... it's harder.

I'll certainly be using those functions as I work up to playing the "Purist" difficulty.

Harder is fine. But conviction was DESIGNED for use of mark and execute. Where it funneled you into confrontation. Sure you could ignore the mechanic, but you'd have to break the way the game was designed to do so. I don't want a single instance of that in this game. I want to set it to hard, and do things my way...the old way...the better way.

the old way is the only way...

Yeah, like in the first Splinter Cell where the only one person you have to kill is Nikoladze and you can leave everyone else alive. Non-lethal gameplay in that game was hard but fun, surely not punishing.

My god, they've done it. I was convinced by their Chinatown walkthrough, but with all the disguises, open levels, and traps here I'm sold!

I thought at the E3 will be shown newspaper cuttings ...

I think the game looks quite impressive - and I don't know if it's a testament to that, but I think I would actually enjoy watching someone skillfull play this at twitch.tv more than playing it myself. :-)

About the game


What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido I mean, how often does it come down to managing to hit a key a milisecond or two faster, as compared to not being shit at the game? :P (35 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido I wonder how many people are even good enough at the games they play to have that make any significant impact :P (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are some new low-travel switches that a lot of people like for gaming too but are bad for typing. Not sure that appeals to me. (39 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Well i mena the clicker thing is gone completely, but the notch in the switch seems to keep some of that tactile feel still in the brown switch. Looks like a good option. (45 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: From the videos and descriptions i could find, it seems like the brown switches are a little quieter than the blu, and that's pretty much what i'm looking for. I like the clicking :) (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX If you don't like the natural level of noise you could consider trying adding o-rings too.. I've never actually tried it. (50 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Brown seems like a good middle ground, and i found a keyboard with brown switches for a decent price as well, so i might just go for that. (51 minutes ago)
