1. Neal plays some kind of joke every year, so I was expecting something.

2. I don't link directly to the forums. I always go to the front page first, so when I saw the add for SH5.1 on the XBOX I kind of figured something was up.

He no foola me this time.

I like the catchphrase 'No power greater than X' LOLZZZZZ

Somehow the XBaWKZ theme is fitting for a UBI game.

No way, all you'll need to do is take down the forums and leave an HTML page that says that Subsim has been sold to Ubisoft and that users will have to pay, and it can only be accessed through U-Play and various other attrocious things... it'll be good I promise



Or not....
