It's crazy how now I can recognize who posted the video by just reading the video description. Oh, Alex. You're a thing.

I need my Ironside, man.

If it's anything like Conviction I want nothing to do with it. Haven't enjoyed Splinter Cell since the first couple of games.

Jeesh, I hate seeing how Splinter Cell became CSI with assassinations.

It's crazy how people still dredge up the most tired and rote commentary about Alex's writing style well past the point of it being obvious.

I'm logged in. I order shit from the store. This site knows I'm over the legal age.

Why the hell am I dealing with an age gate on this video?

ehhh conviction was lots of fun for what it was (ie a new style of splinter cell game). Once you accept all games are not exactly like their former games you can be much happier in life.

Posted by JEC03

Looks like it could be good I liked conviction but they need to expand the combat. I'm not sure how I feel about the killing in motion seems like it would make the game way to easy who knows maybe this will be a great game hell FarCry 3 looked like generic shit in early previews but turn out to be one of the best games of last year.

No Michael Ironside, do not want.

Posted by ChuckDeNomolos

Wait, so is this about Sam Fisher becoming the stealth president? This trailer doesn't make much sense,.

Posted by insanejedi

No ironside, no splinter cell.

Does anyone really care about this game at this point? It's like when Rainbow 6 no longer was Rainbow six, when they discarded the planning stages... RUN, AIM, SHOOT, REPEAT! Also, no Michael Ironside, no sale...

Posted by Spitznock

Sorry, I fell asleep about 10 seconds in... what did I miss?

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

needs more stealth

Posted by mcmax3000

This is probably for the best. Would rather have the game a few months later, than super glitchy.

I do. I don't really care if it's not like previous games in the franchise. I just like fun stealth action games. The idea of judging a game based on how much it emulates other games is silly. It's like saying Duke Nukem 3D was terrible because it wasn't a 2D platformer anymore. All I care about is whether or not it's a good game.

Any reason they don't show Obama's inauguration when they show video from so many others and only use audio from his?

ehhh, this doesn't look particularly interesting.

I guess it's just way too simplified for me. Duke2D - Duke 3D was a vast improvement. I mean come on, working mirrors, AND flushing toilets!?

Posted by SikNastiWitIt

All I care about is spies vs mercs, if they get that right I'm sold. I will prolly never touch the story mode.

Posted by Alexander

The series has moved well on to a different audience.

Defaulted to me being born in '59 (teehee), so I didn't have to click anything. But guarantee it's a mandate by Ubisoft.

Posted by RobertOrri

I won't lie, I will play this just like I played every other Splinter Cell game. *sigh*

Posted by MeatSim

I will still take drunk Michael Ironside over this.

Posted by kennybaese

Hm, hopefully I'll like this more than I liked Assassin's Creed III. Then again, maybe I'll just go play Dishonored again if I want some stealth action.

Posted by woutr

'We're not gonna stop the attack. We'll stop all the attacks.' Really? Thats the line you went with?

Posted by AssInAss

It at least looks more like Chaos Theory with these kind of moves, dragging bodies and non-lethal returning:

Still very skeptical.

I'm still very much wait and see on Blacklist at this point.. However Splinter Cell: Conviction remains one of THE BEST GAMES EVER. Possibly my favorite game this generation not called Spelunky. Criminally underappreciated game

I wish Sam Fisher was more like Snake :\

WHEREZ MAH DOUGHTER

Posted by Terjay

Unless this gets some insanely good review scores I'm not getting it. I was super disappointed in Conviction. It was so damn bad I didn't even finish it.

Posted by Humanity

I can only hope theres a "I'm getting too old for this shit" line in there somewhere.

Posted by XChairmanDrekX

Damn, I wish this didn't remind me of this games existence. Splinter Cell was a trilogy, culminating to greatness with Chaos Theory. Not sure what the hell happened after that.

Like almost everyone else here, I too am upset that Michael Ironside is not coming back as Sam Fisher. But, in my honest opinion, this negativity is getting really ridiculous. It feels like everyone is being way too judgmental on this game, just because he's not in it, and it's not even coming out until the end of August.

That said, I'm a lifelong Splinter Cell fan, and I'm loving that this game is bringing back the sneakiness of Chaos Theory, with the action-focused approach that Splinter Cell Conviction brought. It's looking awesome, so far.

So, I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm doing my best to accept Eric Johnson as the new Sam Fisher, and I wish everyone else could do the same.

MMURIKA FUCK YEAH!!

Posted by aquamarin

Splinter Cell: Blacklist? I think I'm confusing franchises, maybe this with Ghost Recon. Was this the one that they showed the trailer of and everyone was like "they've turned Splinter Cell into yet another brown shooter"?

Posted by Delta_Ass

The voice is godawful.

Posted by Quarters

Blacklist is hard for me. I think the gameplay itself looks good(and I really like Conviction), but the lack of Ironside is really weird. That, plus the de-aging of Sam is just strange and hard to get used to. I want to like the game, as I've gotten increasingly more into the series, but certain decisions just seem ill-advised. I'm sure I'll play it, and I figure it'll at least be decent, if not great, but not having Ironside in there is going to be a constant distraction.

Posted by GERALTITUDE

Looks bland. Or old maybe? Hope August gives them enough time to add interesting visuals.

Edited by Grog

The new voice guy sounds too young compared to Sam's age at this point, and from what little audio we've heard with him talking so far, he sounds either bored or going too overboard with the "I'm a hardened soldier, hooah!" kind of affectation. At least Ironside has some personality in his voice and seems to fit the character well.

edit: Oh. It's the guy who played Lana's original boyfriend on Smallville. Now it makes sense.

Edited by Stokes

Thoroughly enjoyed Conviction. Play it on the hardest difficulty and it become a lot more like the old games. Either way, this game is looking like it'll be more of that. I feel like I'm in a good place having liked both the old Splinter Cells and the new.

Yeah. I noticed that too. Maybe its because he is the current president, so footage may have restrictions that don't apply to other historical recordings.
Posted by yevinorion

Comes out on my birthday. I enjoyed Conviction, so I'll give it a go.

Edited by AV_Gamer

I don't know if I can play a Splinter Cell game without the voice of Ironside; he is Sam Fisher.

I know I sure as fuck don't, not really looking for another excuse to virtually shoot and torture foreigners because FREEDOM BLACKOPS TACTICOOL GUNZ WALKAWAYFROMEXPLOSION

Posted by HerbieBug

If they put mark and execute into this I swear to god I'll... I'll! Well I won't buy it just the same as I didn't buy the last one. :/

Posted by xite

I remember when Conviction was released Jeff called out Michael Ironside for being an asshole drunk, a terrible voice actor and that he shouldn't be hired again. Weird now that everyone wants him back.

Posted by doe3879

EPIC

...trying too hard to be

Posted by Psychohead

Eh. I'll miss Ironside, but whatever. This guy sounds fine.
