Conviction producer says players shouldn't fear the new 'Mark and Execute' feature

Ubisoft Montreal producer Alexandre Parizeau told Joystiq that gamers should not fear Splinter Cell: Conviction's new 'Mark and Execute' feature. Since first showing off the feature during Microsoft's Pre-E3 media briefing, Parizeau says some gamers fear the game will become too easy. "Have no fear at all," Parizeau told Joystiq during a one-on-one interview during E3 2009. "It's an added tool that lets you do the first step when storming a room or area or a situation. But you'll have all the tools that you used to use as well."

I live in mtl514/real-city(suwoop to the B-gang) and worked next to them , near TQS station . I used to sneak in and try to get a peak @ the above floors and see if Jade was hawt in real life but never got passed the secratry office loll.

All the games thay have made this gen are great.

I trust them and i wont be fearing the new mark and execute feature.

morganfell3109d ago

It isn't exactly new. It's right out of R6 Vegas.

gaffyh3109d ago

Yeah, why did they do this, it almost seems like the game will be too easy with this feature. If they just made a proper sequel to SC I would be happy, they don't need to mix it with their other IPs and mess it up :(

lokin3108d ago

is this under ps3 section?

theKiller3108d ago

am scared already. the torrent file may contain a virus since it will be on PC.

Yeah that's true and all but I think it's great there adding this and making Sam a more baddazz fluid character. It might be out of rainbow, but if you think it's easy then don't use the feature.

LOL - it's new to the Splinter Cell Franchise though, isn''t it?

--> Ubisoft Montreal producer Alexandre Parizeau told Joystiq that gamers should not fear Splinter Cell: Conviction's new 'Mark and Execute' feature.

It doesn't say it is something no other game ever had does it?

Didn't you claim it makes the game too easy? Well there's the developer's response to those concerned.

Am I missing something?
How come this game is listed as multi-plat?

bokspeed3108d ago

I thought it was exclusive to the xbox360 until a read that. I think a recall Ubisoft confirming 360 only but never say never!

AssassinHD3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

Because Xbox360 + PC = Multiplatform.

Edit: I can't believe I got a disagree. Let me break it down. The PC is a platform. The Xbox 360 is a platform. If a game is releasing on more than one platform, it is releasing on multiple platforms, so it is multiplatform.

This lesson brought to you by the letter "A".

@below. That is a very good point. It should not be in the PS3 section.

ShabzS3108d ago

solidus means why is the article under the ps 3 channel

beans3108d ago

I wasn't aware that conviction was announced for PC. DO you have a link with this confirmation and release date? Also I don't find anything wrong with a game coming to PC and 360 as long as it's console exclusive.

AssassinHD3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

Wow I don't even know what to say to that. Did you even watch the E3 conference? Go watch the Ubisoft conference at about 1:12 and you can hear the confirmation directly from the developer.

Oh and "console exclusive" is just another way of saying "not exclusive at all". I will be playing Splinter Cell: Conviction without owning an Xbox360.

psycho3603108d ago

And yet when there is PC news then we dont find any of you trolls there?

So it means most of the sony franchises are not exlusive since i can play GT on psp, ps2, MGS on psp, ps2, xbox

AssassinHD3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

If you are going to disagree at least come out and explain why. I respect Beans for doing that much. The phantom disagrees just show that you are weak. Phantom disagrees to stated fact just show that you are ignorant, in addition to being weak.

@2.6

I have never disagreed with that. MGS Rising is indeed multiplatform, but then I don't believe Sony tried to play it off as exclusive at their conference either. As for Gran Turismo, you do have to own a Sony console, or handheld to play it. If you want the full GT5 experience, you will have to play it on a PS3. If you want the full Splinter Cell: Conviction experience, you can just play it on PC.

"So it means most of the sony franchises are not exlusive since i can play GT on psp, ps2, MGS on psp, ps2, xbox"

Not really,you can play GT mobile only on PsP,MGS Peace Walker only on PsP.MGS 4 only on Ps3.
I didn't hear confirmation but apparently conviction is only on 360 and PC,much like the first was,

Grown Folks Talk3108d ago

the 1st was originally created for the Xbox, but later came to other systems, such as the PS2. The Xbox versions have been quite a bit better than other console versions however. As far as Double Agent, I can't compare between the PS3 & 360 versions because I haven't played the PS3 version. The regular Xbox version of DA was different, but much longer, & still had the co-op missions ala Chaos Theory. As of right now, Conviction is 360 & PC. Doesn't matter to me if it releases for the Colecovision as long as the 360 version is still coming out.

Sir Ken_Kutaragi3109d ago

Isn't it 'Xbox 360 + PC'???

+ Soon to be on 'PlayStation 3'??? ;-D

ShabzS3109d ago (Edited 3109d ago )

the mark and execute feature is well explained in the gamespot stage demo ... you can mark and execute 2 things at a time ... those 2 things can consist of either lights, people or explosives...

before u sweep the room ... optic cable the room ahead and mark any of those things (baddys, lights or explosives) ... only 2 marks are allowed... as soon as you enter sam guns those 2 things down... the rest of the room you have to clear manually...

DreamTension3108d ago

I was watching G4 interview a dev during a walk through and he stated it depends on the weapon. For example if you enter a room with a shotgun you would get 3 spot and marks while a pistol only gives you 2.

This game will rock.

ShabzS3108d ago

yah? .. they didnt mention that on the gamespot demo .. thanks for the info dude .. yah this games is gonna rock

KionicWarlord2223108d ago

I dont remember him say that it will be a specific gun.

Grown Folks Talk3108d ago

The weapon determines the amount of targets. Also, M&E is not unlimited. You earn the ability by doing stealth takedowns & whatnot. Kind of like in Wanted how you earned the curving bullet ability by getting headshots. You don't even have to use M&E if you don't want to. Don't understand why people complain so much about optional things. Oct 21 can't come fast enough for me.
