[i]Splinter Cell[/i] in its two previous incarnations brought innovation to the stealth genre, and just like that, Ubisoft had a winner of a series. The third installment, [i]Chaos Theory[/i], polishes the series and adds some very welcome elements to the best stealth series in gaming.

If you have played a previous [i]Splinter Cell[/i] game, you will be familiar with the ins and outs of [i]Chaos Theory[/i]. You once again play as Sam Fisher, and it is up to you to get behind a terrorist plot. You use stealth as your main ally. Your suit is equipped with light sensors and sound sensors to keep you quiet and hiddenA

Halo 2 update!

April 25, 2005

Bungie.net has released the update for Halo 2 that should fix a lot of the problems that people are having when playing online. For example, cheating and map glitches. Also the ranks and stats are being reset and other online stuff is being fixed. Thank God for all those things being fixed, maybe now I can hop back on to play.

In other news, Pandemic released a few new screens for Star Wars Battlefront 2, new maps, improved gameplay, and now you can fight in massive space battles. Should be cool with new improved graphics and more Episode III maps as well. I also heard you can play as Jedi. Cheers!!

Cold Fear Contest

April 25, 2005

I have 3 copies of Cold Fear along with 3 strategy guides to give away. As soon as I get a chance I am going to put the contest online and I will either draw all 3 names at the conclusion of the entry period or I will draw 1 entry every few days, I haven’t decided. I have copies for Xbox or PS2. Stay tuned….

Chaos Theory

April 25, 2005

I finally made time this weekend to dive headfirst into Chaos Theory and while I am not one for sneakers, I am quite impressed. Ubisoft has really refined SC from the first game into not just another stealth action game, but [i]the[/i] stealth action game that all others are compared to. I still need to hit up some Co-op and jump on Live. Hopefully I can make time for that this week.

I am gone for a week, and the industry blows up with rantable news. Gamestop ganks EB Games, Adobe ganks Macromedia, and someone ganked the right to use Arial for the back of our t-shirts. Arrrrgh.

Anyways Vegas was a blast, though by some oath I cannot elaborate upon the instances that took place, be it in all their innocence.

Now that I am back I have to get back to work, I have a few reviews I have sat on, and if I sit on them any longer Cone will have me offed.
