Hey Kimi,

When is the BETA for Ghost Recon Future Soldier coming out?

Do I need to keep my copy of Splinter Cell Conviction to play it?

And best wishes to everybody at Ubisoft and Red Storm as well. It's been a tough year - hopefully 2011 will be better.

Be reassured that nothing is wrong with me; I'm perfectly fine thank you.

I'm not wishing ill on anyone. On the other hand, I don't cry for people shooting themselves in the foot.

You're wrong in saying that Ubisoft is making games for me. Since around 2005, I'm not their target customer by any stretch of the imagination.

The last UBI games I bought were Athena Sword and Far Cry (by Crytek) in 2004. They were amazing games by the way - truly the last of their kind. I would have bought Splinter Cell Chaos Theory as well if it didn't contain a rootkit-based malware called StarForce.

Around the middle of 2004, it became clear that Ubisoft took the decision to dumb down all its franchises, especially the Tom Clancy ones. It became also clear that their PC games would not be given even just a tiny bit of quality insurance. The following years confirmed what was an evidence for me at that time.

Why am I here you are wondering? The answer is morbid curiosity I guess. With each new iteration, I'm curious to see how deeper into the mud a UBI franchise is being drawn. For instance, the Silent Hunter series has reached the inner core of the earth as we speak.

It's the same morbid curiosity that pushes me to borrow or rent a UBI game to see for myself how pathetic it is. I can't believe I finished Far Cry 2. I can say the same thing for Vegas 2. I could not finish the PC version of GRAW 2 because the game was too buggy. On a side note, I had great fun with R6 Lockdown because my friends and I rented the Xbox version in order to have a good laugh at this moronic failure of a game; we were not disappointed (at least on this aspect).

I did not play Splinter Cell Conviction because I had enough garbage to watch from the trailers on the web. I'm pretty sure I won't even rent GRFS after what I saw from E3.

But be sure that I'll never stop to follow what Ubisoft does, because as far as we used to say ''the survival of the fittest'', we are now in an era were we witness ''the survival of the most pathetic moron'', and it is truly fascinating from a sociological aspect.

Happy Holidays to those who know the meaning of truth, pride, and integrity.

No new date announced yet. Keep your copy of SCC unless you get a beta key through other means. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

first of all, kimi is not making anything, she is not at a keyboard punding out code, she's in marketing/PR, you know the people who try to keep us engaged without actually giving us any information.
