This is how you get folks to watch a video about a community manager discussing the stealth and combat in Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Show him getting choked out by a combat consultant right off the top. We assume the chokee is okay because he and the choker are shown to be getting along swell later on in the video clip.
Also this is all about Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The adventures of a new Sam Fisher in a new version of Fourth Echelon are just what the stealth action fans have been waiting for now that Metal Gear Rising appears to be all about the action. Sneaking and killing should be a totally different experience than just killing bad guys directly. We'll see early next year just how well Blacklist is sticking to its roots.
