Non-Lethal Nerve-Punching: Splinter Cell – Blacklist

Sam Fisher of Men deviates from the assault and battery that didn't make him famous to demonstrate some of his shadowy, stealthy takedowns. It's not the kind of stealth that involves shooting a light, becoming one with the darkness and leaving a group of men trying to work out how many terrorists it takes to change a lightbulb - instead, in Blacklist young (old?)

Don’t Worry, Though, Splinter Cell Still Has Stealth

As Alec recently pointed out, Sam Fisher isn't acting much like his old self these days.

PC Gaming: E3’s Dirty Little Secret

It's a bit odd to cover E3 with a PC-focused slant. Initially, I felt horrifically out of place roaming the LA Convention Center's banner-plastered halls. The Kratoses and Master Chiefs of the world leered at me from their billowing sky perches, and I longed for the warm embrace of, say, a game about embracing people - as Rambo.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist (I’ve Been On A Few Of Those)

All this week, I shall be standing outside with a bucket, attempting to catch as many ephemeral droplets from the downpour of videogame sequel news as I possibly can. Well, I wish I was outside.
