Splinter Cell: Blacklist's "economy system" is explained, seeks to reward players

There are three ways to play Ubisoft's upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and the game aims to reward players for doing well within each of them by incorporating what is called "the economy system." Unlike the real-world economy, it also aims to be fair, balanced and easy to understand. (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Xbox 360)

There was a lot of hype from a certain group of people for Splinter Cell Conviction but almost no hype for Splinter Cell Blacklist. Why is that?

People learned their lesson with Conviction?

Seriously, the ability to tag up to four people and kill them all with a press of a button is ridiculous. Not saying this will be a bad game but they have made some sorry choices for Splinter Cell.

Used to be 2 guys in the same room was a challenge. Stalking, biding your time. The tag and execute made a mockery of classic Splinter Cell gameplay. They might have well just made it a generic 3rd person shooter.

It's kind of sad this game isn't more anticipated. I loved Splinter Cell: Conviction (and the prior games as well).

I'm really looking forward to Blacklist, except the new character build and voice. It's not quite the same without Michael Ironside.

I honestly wish they made a new ip instead of changing splinter cell as it was perfectly fine. Chaos theory is still top notch.

Because Conviction went dead for a long time. Then all of a sudden it came back out of the blue. I was hyped about the original Conviction, despite it's obvious similarity to Ass Creed. But they went back to the drawing board and this is what we got.

The game turned out to be some EZ Mode stealth-lite game; more attuned to casual baby necessities than what a Splinter Cell game should be.

Half of the people who bought it won't be duped into buying a game in which they know is being developed in a similar fashion.

On the flip side there is of course all those casual nooby babies, that get off on features such as Mark and Execute, aka the 'Shit Easy System'; (which went on to find its way into multiple games after that like Hitman Absolution; another turd game made for people who don't like its respective previous games. PATTERNS HERE?)

It made money. So they'll continue. First order of business. Make the shit easy system EVEN MORE EASY! Move'n'Mark'n' Execute! heehehee, The babies will be wowed by that!

Will not buy lul. Watch the Spys vs Mercs turn into some generic waist-high-wall-hugging shooty bang-bang game where magic numbers pop up in the middle of the screen, to make you feel good about making a kill with auto-aim.

It'll get mad reviews though, of course.

Probably because Conviction was exclusive and Blacklist isn't.
Bathyj  +   866d ago
I think its more like because Conviction was pre-Conviction and this is post-Conviction.
They should add stealth to this game I think It would be cool!

you clearly missed the alternate stealth e3 demo they did because children don't understand what demoing off new concepts means and cried.

Clearly you have to spell out sarcasm with a big /s for it to be recognized on the internet.

LOL you work for the government sam but you've gotta make you're on money bahahhahaa. I hope this fucking IP runs into the ground because the faster it does the faster we can have a reboot and move on from this crap.
Honest_gamer  +   866d ago
im not getting this game, i just wanted to post to inform you all that im not gettng it, have a nice day
Bathyj  +   866d ago
Thanks man. I was wondering what your stance would be on this title. ;)

EDIT
Yeah I hope you took that as lighthearted as I meant it. I mean I put the wink thingy in there.

good, you got one approve and one bubble for that comment! i just thought with all the usless crap that will be posted, i may as well add into it lol
TENTONGUN  +   866d ago
i will get it. not cause its sc, but because it looks decent in its own right. but i would prefer a different old school evolution of chaos theory though.
Bathyj  +   866d ago
Its good that you can use alternate play styles, but I hope you do get punished for assault. If you want to go all guns blazing I think one or two hits should kill you and no regenerating health. Going loud should be a last resort.

Ive always been a panther style player, not a ghost. I always sneak and go slow, in every game that lets you, but I dont sneak past, I kill everyone and try to stay undetected. Thats why I'm loving Farcry 3 at the moment.

Blacklist is already more stealth then Conviction.

Heck your rewarded for being stealth.
