Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 3

By Stormblade - Posted on 03 October 2015

No. 3 - Rainbow Six Siege

In a simpler time when cooperative video games were fun and the Herd of Cats always got along, some of the most fun we had playing together was playing Rainbow Six Vegas. Okay, it's possible we didn't always get along, but we really did have fun playing Rainbow Six Vegas.

In fact, if you look through the Lexicon of Death, many of the phrases listed there came from our days playing R6V. This was during the heady days of the initial CoD games, which were the cause of one of the most dangerous mistakes in R6V. This was to 'mistakingly' throw a grenade when trying to crouch. The reason this was a problem was in Rainbow Six, friendly fire was on. One had to pay attention for single word phrases like 'crap!', 'dammit!', or 'oops!' and then one had to run. Fast. The fact that we were able to get anywhere in this game with friendly fire on is still amazing to me today.

This leads me to the next game on my list, Rainbow Six Siege. My anticipation for this game is based completely on the hope that it will be at least as good if not better than R6V was in its day. I’m hoping it will recapture the magic that led us to waste many evenings in Vegas.

Asps ... very dangerous ... you go first.Asps ... very dangerous ... you go first.
Tactical teamwork

While these are two words that are almost never associated with the Herd of Cats, we actually got pretty good at this in R6V. Of course, we were playing solely against the AI. While I look forward to trying multiplayer against multiplayer in Rainbow Six Siege, I do hope that there will be a well fleshed out co-op against AI mode in the game.

Of the five games that I am anticipating the most, this one has the highest risk of disappointment. I'm prepared to take that risk if there's any chance it will bring back the fun we had playing Rainbow Six Vegas.
