The game fucking rules, plain and simple.

I've played the Xbox demo through about a half dozen times now using different tactics.

All of the hype you've heard about it is damn true.

I haven't heard any hype about it. What's the hype?

The preview people have always raved about it.

The hype is usually graphics, atmosphere, AI, stealth gameplay done right, etc.

There's tons of cool and useful gadgets.

I don't think anyone's heard any hype about it:).

About the only game I've seen mentioned anywhere and remembered has been Natural Selection, the new uber mod for Halflife.

I always suspected this forum was kind of out of it with regards to games.

People obsessed with sub-par Blizzard games to weird football games to silly web-games... ;)

I've never heard of it but then I don't go out of my way to look at X-Box games 'cause I don't have one. :beer:

You forgot to mention that we are split over our views of Civ games and Sid Meier, too.

Split - well 1/2 a dozen might like it - the rest think it sucks worse than a lollipop in a vacuum cleaner.

I didn't actually play it. I never expressed any opinion about it at all, except that I'm not paying money for it.

Splinter Cell is coming to all consoles and the PC.

But thanks for playing anyway. ;)

Still never heard of it.

There are too many games currently. I'm happy with finding out about the good ones after they are released.

Me either, the fact it has something to do with Tom Clancy is a turn off.

Voltron!

Not a Clancy fan?

Not Volton, you fool.

Still haven't heard squat about it, Ash. That's an invitation to bubble on about it.

Someone provided links.

Darkstar

You expect us to follow links? You should know better then that! :D

Your loss then.

Darkstar

Not really. ;) But I was giving you a chance to talk about the game nicely, which I'd consider when/if I ever say it for a platform I own.

Asher

It's coming to PC next year.

Voltron...that's shameful.

Not Voltron I mean. Voltron is cool. Calling Starscream, Voltron, that's bad.

Yes. Run and hide in shame. You shameful shame monger of shame.

You're right, I could never humiliate you that totally.

Keep on trying, it's the only way.
