Review: Splinter Cell Conviction

It’s been four years since Splinter Cell: Double Agent was released across every platform known to man, and while it didn’t live up to our expectations it didn’t take long until Ubisoft announced Splinter Cell: Conviction, the fifth chapter in the story of Sam Fisher. After years of delays and completely rebuilding the game from scratch it’s finally here. So how does it hold up to the kings of the stealth genre? Let’s find out.

Puff: Hello and info!

Hello! Puff here speaking.
I make this update without permission from my boyfriend Sir Tobbii; but I'm sure he'll notice in no time. While looking through Achievement Unlock I realized that I've done little to add to the gaming spirit.

So I'll do my share this weekend. I'll sit down and play through the game Clock Tower for the Super Famicom, I'll then put up a Retro-Review of the game here.

So, get ready for some classic horror.

(Cleaned up some things. //Tobbii)

Major Updates! (UPDATED!)

Alright, important matters first.

Jimmy Lindmark, one of the founders of Achievement Unlock is leaving tomorrow for Stockholm, naturally this means that while he still will be a part of the website he probably won't be making any more videos with anyone down here in Kalmar for the time being. Unfortunatly, this means no three-way Final Fantasy XIII review that I was looking forward to shooting. So allow me to sum it up shortly; I think the game is worthless, so does Jimmy. However, Jonis happens to love it so much he named it "The Best Final Fantasy Ever". So make with that what you want.

But on to more positive news! We've got a brand new writer here at AU! I'd like to welcome Marty Karlsson to the team, let's hope he won't have to move any time soon. Next important bit is about the 2010 GamerScore Race. Jonis has officially dropped out as he sold his X-Box 360 last week. But Jimmy and me are still going at it and of course I will win in the end ... or not, we'll see.

The next upcoming review by me is one of these three; Resonance of Fate, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Alan Wake. All games that I've been looking forward to a whole lot, so let's hope they lived up to their potential. We also have a little bit different design on the site now, so enjoy that as well not to mention that soon we'll have a profile section for all the writers at AU.

Now, I might not be write that much on twitter the upcoming days, as my wait for Alan Wake also means that I'm staying away from internet to avoid spoilers as best I can.

UPDATE!
The Profile sections is up, now to get everyone to write something! Also, the twitter/gamertags are now available under Contact.

Gamerscore Race (Day 101)


Tobbii''s Notes:
It's too bad Jimmy lost his Memory Unit and +5000G of progress on the race, but at least he's getting back into the race and I'm sure he'll pick up quick enough. Also, we will both be more precise with going online on our profiles from now and then to secure our score. Any way, make sure to read my Lost Planet 2 Multiplayer Beta impressions below!

[Preview] Lost Planet 2: Multiplayer

I love Capcom, and who wouldn't? They brought us classics like Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man and Bionic Commando. Their name is synonymous with quality, or at least they most often is. Lost Planet 2, the sequel to 2006's popular X-box 360 game is unfortunately a very mixed bag, at least in its current state. But what does that actually mean? Hit the jump to find out!
