Don't know if you all heard, but LJ is being taken over by the Russians [it's like a plot to a bad post-Cold War Avant Garde espionage thriller, or something. anyway...] and they're changing EVERYTHING INTO CYRILLIC.
I'm leaving for Army Basic next week, so maybe this is a good way to say goodbye to LJ and all the folks I've talked to on here. Maybe one day when I do another SC photo op, I'll find you guys on another forum and share those photos with you.
This comm. is pretty much dead so far as I can tell, but I'd be remiss in not saying goodbye to everybody. Best of luck to you all!
So no doubt everyone is playing Conviction lately, but lately I've been wondering about Double Agent. Not the 360 version. The ORIGINAL xbox version.
I was wondering if anyone here has played it? I've played the 360 version (and was not fond of it), and now I'm thinking I should have bought the Gen6 version back when it was in stores (yaye amazon!)
Anyway. Thoughts? How does it fare on its own, and against the Gen7 version?
Hey folks. Just wanted to talk to other fans about what they think of recent games.
1.Conviction has been out for a few months, what do you think of it?
2.How should the next SC game play out?
3.Any other Clancy games your looking forward to?/What do you think Ubisoft should do with future Clancy games?
Here are my thoughts:
1. I honestly thought the single player was a lot of hero worship (which I despise). Everybody and their mother in the game seems to know who Sam Fisher is, and a lot of the bad guys are foul mouthed buffoons who talk a lot of shit. The co-op was so much more enjoyable over the single player. In fact, it was better than the single player, and past co-op modes (CT and DA) combined.
2. With recent R6 (Rainbow Six) and SC games, Ubisoft has adopted P.E.C. quite often, adding a certain RPG element to these two series, which I think is a great idea. Players should be awarded in game for their feats. The next SC game should be even more of an RPG, including suit customization, and even facial/sex customization (like in the latest R6 game). The story should revolve around Anna officially taking over Third Echelon, and sending her raw recruit out to locate Sam. In this way, the recruit can be male or female. I wouldn't go so far as to say the next SC game should be like Alpha Protocol, but it'd be neat to send your lone operative to various locales, by your choice. Like various leads that you track down at your leisure, and maybe even sidequests. This probably sounds a bit like heresy, coming from a hardcore fan of the first game, but hey...formulas for past SC games obviously didn't last very long. It's good to change it up.
3. I think the next R6 game should revolve around team Rainbow hunting down the guys who purchased intel on the organization's members (not to mention that unresolved plot detail where Gabe purchased warheads). Like following a crumb trail, starting with the last level of Vegas 2, and then continuing on into South America, maybe to Central Asia, Chechnya...fun places like that. As usual, they should retain V2's formula (exp points, P.E.C, etc)
Anyway. What do you folks think?
So I bought a 360 and Rainbow Six Vegas Two. I get to the end of the level for extraction, and into the helicopter jumps a curious figure in all black and green NV goggles.
He comes with you to the next level in the Nevada Desert, but you two split up on the basis that this fellow "works better alone."
You couldn't believe my fanboy craze when I first saw the character jump in randomly. Throughout the next level you communicate through a headset with him, and he's known only as an "NSA Agent."
Partly because I saw the character (and because the level is set at night), I went and customized my character to look exactly like a Splinter Cell. Very light armour, balaclava, goggles...anyway, really, really cool. Anybody else here play rainbow six?
