      They also let people who played the PC version talk about it finally. Sounds like a great version with having a ton of graphics options, moving the hud around / being able to adjust the opacity of it, key rebinding, multi monitor support and crazy keyboard customization w/ logitech ones from what some of the videos I've watched said.

          Even before he died, he released way too many books every year for them to all be written by him. He definitely had a couple of ghost writers ala Stephen King.

            I don't think they ever tried to hide that? They always have Tom Clancy in huge letters, novel name by ____

        He's dead now, but he was one of the co-founders of Red Storm games that made the original R6 games and a few others before Ubi bought them.

        Tom Clancy is a fictional character, like Colonel Sanders

          That's not true! He just became Lieutenant Colonel Sanders.

        Ubi purchased the rights to his name for what I assume was trucks loads of cash

          ah, that makes sense. it's kind of weird though. do they sell more games with his name attached? i didn't think the gaming industry still works like that.

        Tom Clancy is what Ted Cruz likes to call his penis.

        Ubi bought the rights to the "Tom Clancy" brand for video games back in 2008

        Red Storm Entertainment who made most of the early Tom Clancy games was founded by Tom Clancy.
