Snake was always the go-to guy when it came to stealth games in the 80s and 90s. In the early 2000s though, gamers were introduced to Sam Fisher in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell. To me, he mirrored Snake in many ways, except that he replaced boxes with green, three-eyed goggles and stuck to the shadows more religiously. The series has become successful and well established, garnering its own mass of fans. Some decided to make their own film using the sneaky protagonist.

Tom Clancy, arguably the most influential modern military novelist, and certainly one of the most read ones, has passed away at he age of 66.

Not so long ago, I had the strangest thought: what if the 17th century English poet, William Congreve was around today? Would his famously paraphrased quote “Hell has no fury like a woman scorned” be re-tweeted and re-blogged as “Hell has no fury, like a gamer scorned”?

The awesome guys from Megarom and Microsoft hosted us in Bryanston last night for an awesome night of drinks, food and games.  We got some hands on time with the Splinter Cell: Blacklist code, and I drank plenty of girly boozy drinks.

Because I’m dumb, I chose a score for the last Last Stand challenge that was too easy to achieve; in fact the guy who managed it did it within 5 minutes of the post going out. Or perhaps he went back in time and won before the competition even went live. I digress. Sargon will soon be receiving a shiny Splinter Cell LED torchlight thingamabob because he rocks this party. Today though, the challenge is more open, and more fair.

Yesterday, we asked you really quite incredible readers to posts scores in our very first game, Lazygamer.net Last Stand, at somewhere around the 32 100 mark. that actual total was pretty much impossible given how the scoring works – but quite a few of you managed to hit the closest possible score. In fact, 8 of you got 32085. The person who did it first though…

Think your PC has what it takes to do some covert assassinations to the tune of some night vision goggles lighting up? How the hell should I know, I’m not privy to this information dammit! What I do happen to know though, is that you’ll need a decent-sized rig in order to run Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Graphic card-breaking leaks after the jump.

I was a huge fan of the original Splinter Cell titles but I have to admit I started losing interest and this latest title hasn’t really been getting me excited, that was up until this morning.

The latest iteration of Splinter Cell is due for release fairly soon. Once more you step into the silent shoes of Sam Fisher, but how will this game improve over its predecessors?

And how are we all feeling after this first wicked day of E3? Since I’m writing this before anything has been announced I don’t know if Microsoft has redeemed itself or if Sony has also assigned itself to the hatred corner.

Say what you like about it, but I really enjoyed the last Splinter Cell game, Conviction. By not being a typical Splinter Cell game, it was actually better. Gone were the time-consuming stealth mechanics and in its place was a far more fluid way of taking down enemies. And it also had a fantastic co-op section added in as well. Something that I hope Blacklist can improve upon even further.

I’ve been interested in Splinter Cell ever since we saw that great Gamescom trailer last year - bu there have been a lot of complaints about whether the game is being dumbed down for the COD generation or if perhaps they are slowly ditching the stealth elements of the game.

Ubisoft have released a new Splinter Cell Blacklist trailer that specifically showcases the advantages and features of the Nintendo Wii-U version over the others. It’s nice to see a developer specifically targeting the strengths of the new Nintendo console.

Gamers a re a weird lot. I don’t mean that in a negative way, but it is tricky to gauge what is and what is not acceptable in the industry these days. While sitting down for a session of flavour of the month FPS, you’re going to see the usual amount of popping heads and blood sprayed everywhere. But torture? Hoo boy, that is something that gamers do not dig, one bit whatsoever. At least, that’s what Ubisoft is saying, as they’ve taken out that segment from the upcoming Splinter Cell” Blacklist, with extreme prejudice.
