Rather than running directly on OUYA, the titles stream over the cloud. During my trial, I was able to play LEGO Batman 2 in 720p and experienced zero noticeable lag or delay. “In this beta, we will be employing for the first time the power of a public cloud system,” said Guy de Beer, CEO of Playcast Media. “Initial results have been very encouraging, and we hope to expand the program soon.”

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is only a few weeks away, so it might be time to clear out your backlog of Ghost Recon and other Tom Clancy games. At least, that's what Microsoft thinks, hence the Tom Clancy DLC sale on Xbox Live. Downloadable content for both GRAWs, Splinter Cell Conviction (my favorite Clancy game), and even the high-flying HAWX games are all on sale for half off for Xbox Live Gold members until Tuesday.

I know I'm a little late to the Splinter Cell: Conviction party, but for some reason I never tried the game until this year. After reviewing the Windows Phone version for my other job, I decided to give the Xbox 360 game a chance. I enjoyed the stripped-down version, and its big brother even has both split-screen and online co-op for 2 players. How could I go wrong?

It would appear that Ubisoft has been busy working on another sequel for the Splinter Cell franchise, as we are starting to see some images of an apparent menu screen. The dissection of this image is very straight forward, as VG24/7 states:

When looking at game design, a few things are necessary in order for co-op to work properly. Most of these things gamers don’t think about on a day to day basis - and it’s not covered in our Co-Op Terminology guide. It’s the core principles for getting players to work together, which Ubisoft designer Patrick Redding disclosed at GDC. He talks about moments where he is very satisfied with during the co-op test phase, and things that every developer (should) think about during co-op development.

CES is about gadgets. Most gadgets don’t apply to us, but when we get a solid lead on a new headset that brings players together through communication we can’t help but get a little excited. The new Steelseries Spectrum 7xb is a wireless headset that does just that for the Xbox 360. The headset features a retractable microphone, easy to use settings on the right earcup, and a few different settings to really bring players into the game.  We we're big fans of the wired 5XBs, so the 7XBs sound like a worthy upgrade.

It’s a the dirty term to PC gamers everywhere: DRM (Digital Rights Management). Ubisoft has so far been the industry leader in limiting, locking, and generally DRMing your games to the point many gamers will steer clear of the publisher at all costs. It’s a new year now, and one of Ubisoft’s resolutions for 2011 is to “relax the DRM” they add to their games. Not perfect, but it’s a start.

Every successful national or global operation abides by a set of documents; these are sometimes called control forms (as in the United States CFR system). Everything is documented, all the way down to each request for a box of pencils. After playing a full co-op mission of Splinter Cell: Conviction together, Mike and Jim wondered what a mission file full of control forms would look like, as penned by operatives Archer and Kestrel. What follows is an accurate picture of what our Nation’s top operatives REALLY think.

A few months ago we came across an interesting article that shed some light on Sam Fisher's peculiar shooting stance in Splinter Cell: Conviction. Today we’ll take a look at traditional poses and see how the new one holds up as a credible way for our favorite rogue operative to dispatch bad guys.
