What Works And Why: Unfair intel in stealth games

What Works And Why is a monthly column where Gunpoint and Heat Signature designer Tom Francis digs into the design of a game or mechanic and analyses what makes it good. Games about one player character against hundreds of enemies generally have to give you some kind of unfair advantage. In action games, it's usually resilience: getting shot in Call of Duty covers you in…

Sneak A Peek At Project Stealth

It was way back in 2011 when RPS last covered Project Stealth, and even then Jim was commenting on how the previous video was released in 2009. That's a long time for a game to make no visible progress. This should have been on my PC yearrrrrs ago. The promise is there, but they've yet to deliver the re-imagining of Splinter Cell's Spy Vs Merc…

Silent Kill: Splinter Cell – Blacklist

The voice at the beginning of the new Splinter Cell trailer sounds a lot like Jigsaw, the dying/dead/metaphorical villain of the horrifically dull Saw series. This voice is threatening the whole of America though, which means he might not be Jigsaw, who is more likely to spend his time righting individual wrongs, such as finding a chap who inadvertently left the milk out of the…

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?) Sam…

In Outlast, The Greatest Horror Enemy Of All… Is Man

There are many frightening things in this world. Some of them are to be expected - for instance, giant, violently writhing millipedes and whatever primeval force gave Gary Busey the power to "smile." Other things, meanwhile, are less expected. Things like penguin mouths. And still others are so expected that they've lost their chill-inducing mystique entirely. That's where videogame monsters enter the picture. I mean, it's…

Splinter Cell: Conviction Set For February

Splinter Cell: Conviction has released a super-gruesome trailer to make clear its release date. The 2nd of the 23rd month of the year. Which I believe is called Fructosember, of course originally named after the Roman god of naturally occurring sugars. Wait, hang on, it's that backward American dates thing isn't it? They meant the 23rd of February. Who picked that? Do you Americans write…

Splinter Cell 5 – “Who Said Anything About Hiding?”

Sam Fisher's been off the radar for a little while, Ubisoft having given the old lad some time off whilst they made that bloke in the hood from Assassin's Creed their stealth-man of the hour. Well, the guy who pays Michael Ironside's rent is coming back this year, in the long-delayed Conviction. In the CGI and in-game footage below, it's clear this is an earthier,…
