The Sam Fisher Roundup
Well, that ends our time with Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher. Let's take a look back at what we learned, eh?
Character Breakdown: Sam Fisher
We lay out exactly what makes Sam an iconic character. His stealth, combat, and military prowess, his dark humor, his storied military service background, and his dark, dirty little secrets.
The Sam Fisher Workout
Here we laid out a workout that emphasizes muscular endurance and conditioning, for when you really need to hang from that pipe for an extra ten seconds to get the drop on that soldier, or you need to crouch walk for a mile and a half before you get to your designated target.
The Skills of Sam Fisher
We looked at the basic qualifications of a Navy SEAL(the branch of special forces Sam started in before moving to third echelon), how to walk in a stealthy manner, how to perform a split jump, and an overview of Krav Maga, Sam's martial art of choice.
The Mind of Sam Fisher
Compartmentalization is key, when you're dealing with such nasty stuff as Sam does. We learned how to deal with traumatic events while still maintaining focus, and the ability to do what we need to do.
As Sam slinks off into the dark night to get ready for Blacklist, we're going to get ready for our next character, who cuts a rather more curvy figure, even as she gets ready for her upcoming gritty reboot. Until then, make sure to follow me on Twitter, like the blog page on Facebook, hit up the Tumblr, and continue to be awesome!
