I think it is wierd on all the screens and videos and images ive seen of this game Sam's goggles have 3 bright green lights on the outside. So if the room is completly dark wouldnt guards be able to see 3 green lights coming right at him? It doesnt bother me i just think it is strange. It looks cooler with the green lights i have to admit but it is still kinda wierd.

whats weird is how the bodys dont use karma physics when the Unreal engine has it BUILT in. I saw sam break through an office window, shoot a guard, then take him to the edge and drop him and half of his body was lying flat on the ground, although there was no floor there. They needed the physics of UNREAL to do it.

Actually, the three "glowing dots" emanating from my goggles serve as an indicator: it shows the player where I'm facing in pitch-black darkness (until you turn on the night vision... obviously). Same thing for the radio on my back (goggles=front, radio=back). It is for gameplay purposes. If you wanna learn more about how nightvision works, check out this link:

It's pretty interesting.
Hope I anwsered your question.
I'll see you all in november

Isn't that his Palm device?

Oh, and please...Palm?! Isn't their stock like .17 a share or something? Come on, Sam. Get a Sony Clie or a PocketPC or something. :-)

As far as the "glowing green pad" on my arm (as you like to call it), it's emits a slight glow, but only when I activate it.

I think it's his radio. He has an earpiece to prevent others from hearing it, and he can just talk and it records.

When he talks he doesnt have to speak audibly, all he needs to do is whisper, as he has a Cochlear implant, which is an amplifier placed in his tooth that senses vibrations of the jaw and transmits them over the radio in the forum of sound waves...or so i reckon...

"Cochlear implant" Seems to imply that it's inside the cochlea, a part of the ear that's shaped like a shell.

Here's a drawing of the cochlea and semicircular canals used for balance.

Indeed, you are correct, i got that backwards...he has a cochlear implant in his ear, which allows him to hear vibrations that are transmitted over the radio as sound waves...basically the radio makes the thing in his ear a natural telephone.

And i reckon he has a chip in his tooth too to transmit, not a microphone...

But THE_SAM_FISHER would probably know for sure.
