The phrase “gunsmith” always makes me imagine the Ghosts ducking into a wartorn alleyway, only to discover a comfortable alcove occupied by a jolly, thick-bearded dwarf and his robust set of smelting tools. They sit down and banter for a bit over a thick hunk of black bread and some finely aged cheeses. It’s all very pleasant. Evidently, however, Ubisoft and I don’t exactly see eye-to-eye on the subject of mythril and its effectiveness in modern combat zones. Granted, when someone else says “gunsmith,” I don’t imagine that this is what immediately springs to mind either.
So, right. I’m not entirely sure what I just saw there, but I have theories. Regardless, I can’t decide if it was really, really dumb or just awful enough to be kind of great. At any rate, Ghost Recon: Suture Folder is out on June 15. Are you looking forward to meticulously poring over ergonomic gun triggers for hours on end? Will you do it on a bus, in a box, or with a fox? I mean, I’m all for customization, but does anyone in the crowd actually care this much about total control over their armaments?
