Who Cares About Rainbow Six: Patriots?

Posted by jakob187 (21665 posts) -

Here's what I wanna see...

Lavar, Xaos, Guillermo, Woody, and Yelena are Bravo Squad, the toughest sons-a-bitches this side of the schoolyard. When a terrorist threat hits home, Bravo Squad is called in to do what they do best: knife assholes in the face, shoot rockets up their ass, and bust a cap on some muthafuckers!

Features of the game include:

  • Play single player or five player co-op campaign (because four player is for pussies) that shows the crumbling of America's library system at the hands of a nefarious terrorist organization!
  • Each squad member has their own unique skill set, and advanced training and new moves can be learned by...you guessed it...reading a muthafucking book!
  • 256 player online play on huge ass maps with gigantic mech robots from the future, because why the fuck not, bitches?
  • Karaoke Mode lets you sing along with famous Reading Rainbow songs, like "Old School Reading Rainbow Theme Song" and "New Reading Rainbow Theme Song"
  • Survival Mode globe trots you across the country to different libraries and pits you against the evil forces of a completely different terrorist organization! Save national treasures including Los Angeles Public Library, The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Boston Public Library, New York Public Library, and the big daddy of them all - The Library of Congress!
  • Separate pre-order bonuses at six different locations unlock additional multiplayer weapons, multiplayer skins, and more!
    THREE SKINS HAVE ALREADY BEEN ANNOUNCED!!!
    GAMESTOP PRE-ORDER BONUS: Geordi La Forge skin (as seen on Star Trek: The Next Generation)
    BEST BUY PRE-ORDER BONUS: Kunta Kinte skin (as seen on Roots: The Gift)
    WAL-MART PRE-ORDER BONUS: Family Guy Lavar (as seen on Family Guy)
  • Limited "READ THIS!" Edition features a 1:1 scale bust of Lavar Burton's head!
  • Coming to Xbox 360, PS3, and PC 2012

***UPDATE***

All fully paid pre-orders for the game at any location will get you a free copy of the new downloadable update, Contraversial!!! Co-directed by George Lucas, Contraversial updates a classic like you've never seen it before...because you can barely see shit due to all the tasteful "updating". George Lucas made a comment on his involvement with the project:

As a long-time fan of Contra, I looked at the technology that we had available to us at Lucasfilm and ILM and said "if I can replace the guns in the hands of people in E.T., why don't I just replace the guns with black bars in Contra?" It was like a stroke of genius that only I can have. I think gamers will find this new and fascinating way a pure thrill to play through.

Also confirmed was a cameo from Giant Bomb editor Brad Shoemaker. He will play the head of a tree that photobombs some dirt.

The "trailer" footage just looked like a series of context-sensitive button prompts. I mean...

...nevermind. QTEs. DONE WIT 'EM.

I can't believe you actually took the time to think that out and type it all...

*serious face* What's not legit about it?

(I haven't done anything with photo editing in a long time...)

#8 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

@jakob187: Oh. NOW PREORDERED! Thanks for the heads-up!

#9 Posted by Ghostiet (5252 posts) -

Fucking pre-order bonuses, man. I just hope the books aren't included in those.

#10 Edited by jakob187 (21665 posts) -

@Ghostiet: I contacted Ubisoft. Rather than the usual "no comment" or "we're not speaking about that at this time", they had a pretty...interesting...response:

"FUCK YEAH WHAT THE SHIT WERE Y'ALL 'SPECTING, DAWG?!"

Those Frenchies have obviously been playing Modern Warfare 3.

Announcing the game 14 months early ... I guess it's "epic" then, right.

Dood... You have to save the American library system from terrorists. Of COURSE it's epic! Ben-Hur will lick its nads, and The Iliad is just a dumb sounding word in comparison.

used to play rainbow six games.

then i got completely sick and tired or military shooters. and also completely lost faith in ubisoft's ability to do anything without fucking it up.

how much you wanna bet the endless machine gun audio glitch is STILL going to be in this game?

#14 Posted by Contro (2040 posts) -

If it's in the same vein as early Tom Clancy games, me, but sadly it doesn't appear to be. Rainbow Six is all swish now.

#15 Posted by jakob187 (21665 posts) -

@phrali: Tom Clancy's Reading Rainbow Six features cutting-edge graphics and gameplay that transcends the genre. You will be missing out. They just released the first screenshot. It's got some big spoilers in it as to someone who is helping Lavar and Bravo Squad in their fight against the terrorists, so if any of you don't want spoilers, make sure to not look at the picture below.

@Contro: Tom Clancy's Reading Rainbow Six is not like any FPS you've ever played before, and it's better than any of the previous Tom Clancy's games. Tom Clancy himself has written off on every piece of fiction and character, so you know that we're not just using a Tom Clancy's name on our title in order to sell you a Tom Clancy's game.

Maybe Mr. Caffeine is a skin? GET HYPE

After reading this, I think it's a great time to reboot the text adventure genre.

Not to post this because I don't think already know. I'm sure your post was sarcasm, but here's an interesting video.

It's probably the worst time to do something like that. The news should be going out tomorrow that Tom Clancy's Reading Rainbow Six has also sold two million pre-orders in its first day of announcement.

Sorry, man. The family-friendly shooter market is where it's at! At this rate, we might actually see Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal 2 finally happen!

Well I was just posting the video with your comment since you did happen to mention it. My reply to you wasn't necessarily intended to be directed just to you. I didn't want to make it seem like I was the first to point out that it's the same person.

Steam bonus. Naked Gabe newel skin? 
#25 Edited by jakob187 (21665 posts) -

@The_Laughing_Man: Why the hell would there be a Naked Gabe Newell skin? Gabe Newell has no involvement with the process of Tom Clancy's Reading Rainbox Six.

Oh, right. Steam. Yeah...no.

Also, there is rumor going around that we are considering a port to Mattel Aquarius. This is not confirmed, so please do not spread that rumor around.

I'm excited, as long as there is terrorist hunt and the gameplay is fun, I'm in.

@xobballox: Direct word from the developers: "NO COMMENT ON DAT ISH, MY DAMIE D!"

#29 Posted by sickVisionz (1268 posts) -

All I know is that the trailer better have a helicopter being shot down during the, "butterfly in the skyyyy, I can fly twice as higghhhhhhh," part of the song or it will be worst game ever.
