    I've never played a Ghost Recon or Rainbow 6 game - I don't play games like that in MP at all - is there a decent/worthwhile SP option in there?

    Also Hawx? Yes or no?
    The Vegas games are actually VERY fun, even in SP. your AI is dumb as hell, but the shooting is fun and fairly satisfying. Just keep in mind they aren't the "plan your way through the map and execute everything perfectly" games. They are the "SCout a room, blast open the door, execute the terrorists to save the hostages, repeat on the next room where the terrorists never heard you even though you were throwing frag grenades left and right". In a lot of ways, it captures all the best moments of the original Rainbow Six games without the strategy and thought required to plan a map.

    Never played GHost Recon: Future Soldier (controls didn't work when I eventually tried it...), but the GRAW games are actually REALLY good and are pretty much the same as the original Ghost Recon games, but modernized. They are still VERY tactical and still have a lot of the great "stealthy approaches followed by completely bonkers shootout as you hold off reinforcements" that characterized GR1. If you want something frustrating as hell but fun, GRAW (PC) fits that bill.

    Future Soldier is neat. Gun porn. Great visual design. Not really challenging but still satisfying as hell.

    I'm the resident Splinter Cell Conviction/Blacklist apologist. I think both are dripping with so many good ideas and freedom of execution they justify the a separate franchise to Splinter Cell, Conviction is like Chaos Theory before it 3 different games all wearing the same clothes.

    1: Conviction: Campaign is a Hollywood linear action game with stealth elements, you also have the super hero power of "not needing to bother aiming" at 3 or 4 guys once for every time you give a mercenary a surprise hug.This game is quite good if a touch funnelled.

    2: Conviction: Deniable Ops is a stealth skirmish, can choose the conditions of your opposition, you can play it coop, in a horde/defence mode or linear through a story. Its well polished carefully designed and customisation of both your character and the challenge you face is excelent.

    3: Conviction: Spy vs Spy is a multiplayer stealth/action game with an excellent twist, you and your 1 opponent are being hunted by up to 2 dozen guards, these guards are no match for you but can still kill you near instantly if you are exposed, but they are not your quarry, you want to kill your opponent the other human controlled spy. This is the best thing in conviction and nearly no-one ever played it.

    Interestingly Blacklist has realised the customisation is fun and its a few games too, a "EFF yeah america"(but not really if you read deeper) campaign, a beautiful recreation of Chaos Theory's Spy vs Merc multiplayer brought up to modern graphical standards, but what many people don't realise is that Blacklist is actually the greatest homage to HOTLINE MIAMI going with comboes and scoreboards, attack dogs and painfully limited ammo. Drop the silencer, get an assault rifle/shotgun and play on the hardest difficulty and play an embassy 4E mission. Most stealth games with guns I toyingly call hide and seek with guns, but without a silencer Blacklist can often veer right into peekaboo like Hotline Miami. You need to be highly mobile and thoughtfully mix your tools to efficiently kill before the next part of the wave of reinforcements arrives. just like HM you'll run out of ammo drop your gun and have to salvage the equipment from the fallen, except the attack dogs who sadly cannot be distracted with a dog mask. You need to move and adapt your plan on the fly and you die brutally fast at the first mistake you make.

    Both games Along with Chaos Theory should be essential reading for anyone trying to make a stealth game.

    Be VERY wary of Rust as there is currently a massive cheating/hacking epidemic and the game itself is very much about the strong getting stronger and the weak never actually standing a chance.

    Oh, good to hear. I was thinking of buying this, but it sounds like I should wait.

    I would recommend that. Even if the hacking is fixed (allegedly Garry is planning on doing that, but checking reddit and the forums makes it sound like he thinks he already has it handled with the current system...) the game itself takes the problems of DayZ and cranks it up as you don't just have heavily armed veterans: You have heavily armed veterans in forts you can't take (because they have secured all the explosives) who tend to work in teams (because Rust actually has teamwork :p).

    DISCLAIMER: All information was obtained through youtube, reddit, and the steam/facepunch forums. The game itself really interests me but every time I research it I find more problems.

    Any idea when the Skyrim DLC will come down to a more reasonable price?

    Any of the previous two Steam sales? I forget the specific price, but I think it was 2 or 3 bucks per DLC and probably 10 bucks to just re-buy Skyrim with all the DLC. Good deal for the Solstheim DLC, okay for the vampire one, and about all I would be willing to pay for the shittiest house.

    No, I looked, they hardly dropped at all, certainly not that low.

    I got the legendary edition for £10.19 in the winter sale, that's as low as it's been.

    Yeah, but IIRC the LE was significantly cheaper than the individual components. I think the story DLCs were €10 each, while the LE was like €20 or something.

    LE was down to €13.59, even. It was a bit puzzling.

    Yeah the LE was as cheap as the both the two story DLC's. If it helps you at all to know, if you own Skyrim and then buy the LE just for the DLC, you don't end up with another copy of Skyrim in your library. Your current copy will be upgraded to give you access to the DLC.
