I'll never pay $60 for this game, let alone any game from Ubisoft. I got mine for $35 (unopened) from some dude at overclock.net who is selling them. Now I just gotta wait until it is delivered.

The vast majority of gamers have accepted $60, you're going to have to come to terms with it or wait for sales. Piracy is never the answer.

That said I got it for $45 from amazon with preorder... amazon preorders are awesome.

I love this game when it's sneaky... the more balls out action moments are less fun, but still good.

WTF are you not using the five-seven?! After I got that pistol I pretty much used it only.

Of the two silenced ones, that one is better. I don't want to use non-silenced ones.

How is that one better? The Five-Seven dominates every gun in the game... pistol or not!

EDIT: Oh and the Five-Seven is silenced... it is integrated into the barrel.

Ah, well I may not have noticed it was silenced... I'll take a look!

That's sort of the point. I don't WANT to accept the $60 charge.

Most gamers have accepted started with MW2, and I still haven't purchased that game.

I guess I wait.

-edit-

Btw, you have a floating computer speaker in your last shot

Got it yesterday and it's pretty cool so far.
You can either shoot everything whats in your way or you can go stealth.
In my opinion, both things are possible. But there's much more action and brutality than in the previous Splinter Cells. Some people won't like it I think. But for me, Sam's "new" style fits right in.

I'm looking forward to continue Sam's vengeance journey and I'm excited what's gonna happen

I got the deluxe edition on steam, and how exactly do I enable the extra suit and that infiltration mode?
