The Xbox Live Marketplace is having a rather large sale on Ubisoft titles. Splinter Cell: Conviction is on sale for $9.99. Outland, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World , and Babel Rising, are each on sale for 400 MSP (about $5). Each game offers some form of co-op.
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?
In case you were looking for a way to fill up your entire XBox 360 hard drive with downloadable co-op content, Xbox Live Marketplace's summer deals have you covered. Mission packs for older games? Check. New Arcade releases? Check. There's only one caveat - some of these will expire soon, so don't twiddle your thumbsticks. Well...do twiddle your thumbsticks, but only after you've browsed the below list.
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.
There's a handful of deals this week for co-op gamers, especially if you are a fan of Tom Clancy games - which have always been a fan favorite. There's even a spiffy deal on the Games for Windows marketplace if you're looking to snag the upcoming Bulletstorm.
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.
Most gift guides are full of holiday cheer and all that crap - screw that - instead of giving you a guide on what to buy your friends and relatives for the holidays - I'm going to tell you how to blow a ton of cashola on yourself with plenty of goodies for your PC Gaming experience.
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.
Splinter Cell Conviction's first set of co-op DLC is out now and it's called Insurgency. The DLC adds four new maps for the game's Deniable Ops modes which can be played solo or the preferred method of co-op. These maps range from San Francisco, to a New Orleans cemetery, a Portland Prison and a hidden research complex in Salt Lake City.

Ubisoft has announced the first pack of premium DLC for Splinter Cell Conviction. The pack is called Insurgency, and will be available on the Xbox 360 and PC on May 27th. With the pack you'll have access to brand new missions in the Deniable Ops mode on four new maps. The locales range from the docks of San Francisco to a New Orleans cemetery, a prison in Portland to a hidden research complex in Salt Lake City. These missions are all playable in two player co-op.
Good news for fans of Splinter Cell Conviction, community manager Li Kuo has stated that some "killer DLC is almost done" and that the game's co-op mode is a huge hit. Could this means that new cooperative modes are in the making for the game? Perhaps it'll add in the previously rumored 4 player co-op modes. Hopefully we'll know more soon.
