After reading the reveiw on joystiq i had to see it to believe it, but it is true honest Abe is here to kick alien ass. Having not played either game in the series i have to say this is a crazy plot point. Also seems someone at High Voltage listens to the bombcast.

Thom Clancy could probably write a pretty solid Lincoln Force novel.

Craziness!

It might not be exactly what Ryan wanted, but this might be as close as we get to the actual thing.

Suddenly I demand an endurance run of the Conduit 3 if Lincoln is to play a major role.

Wow, that was stupid and awesome. Also, this thread reminded that Conduit 2 exists.

The best part is just how he shows up.

Ford:  "WTF?  You're..."

Abe: "Here to help."

*BOOM* Title card and credits.

My mind was completely blown when I saw this ending. Abe's random appearance made playing through the single player worth it. Looks like Washington in the back as well.

I just found out about this! This almost makes me want to play this game.

Anyway, I found a higher resolution video and here's a pic. That definitely looks like Washington in the background.

I am super-hyped for Conduit 3 now. Skip the first two.

And to think that Ryan probably never ending up playing through this.


Screw LA Noire for story telling poignancy! Conduit 2 is where it's AT.

The best. Ending. Ever. Fuck Red Dead Redemption that crown goes to Conduit 2.

Great ending & agreed with Patrick, the sequel to this needs to be in HD & looking forward to seeing more of it. Wouldn't mind seeing more games with excessively crazy endings.

Yeah I guess it is cool Honest Abe and G. Wash show up to kick some ass but an ending that is under 2 minutes in this day in age to set up a sequel that may or may not happen is pretty shitty.  I bet if they even make a Conduit 3 you won't be playing as either Washington or Lincoln but as the same doofus as the first two games.  So what is the point ?
