Valve says they're bringing Steam to the PS3. Let's say I bought L4D. Will I have to pay again for a special PS3 Edition, or can I just download the sucker from Steam and play? I do understand that I won't be able to play my Space Quest Collection on the PS3, but for once, it'll be nice to play the games I love on another platform without having to pay out the bunghole.
Come on, Valve. I love you. I will always love you. If you make me pay, I will, sadly, still love you, but I will hate the PSN with a passion. Now be cool, Valve. Be really cool. Be four-portal cool.
I was hyped for this game forever. I was following it when he had the long-haired look and the 'blend with the crowd' mechanic, and all that jazz. I was constantly looking for new information on my favorite franchise. I've played SC since the first one, and I couldn't wait for the new one. I'm still waiting for info on SC6.
From what I've seen, Conviction appears to be a crime against the franchise. The Splinter Cell community seems to hate it. My take on it is this: It's a great game, objectively. If you replace 'Splinter Cell' with 'Man of Action', and disregard the previous games, it is a fun and complete game. In regards to it being a full Splinter Cell game, then I agree, it's toned down for people who are easily frustrated.
However, I still think it's a fun game, and find myself playing it frequently, regardless. It's better for quick action, whereas the previous games always had a way around, and the challenge lied in finding that path.
