America's Army Recon Demo

A bit earlier than anticipated, NVIDIA is the first site to offer downloads of the Recon demo of America's Army: Operations, the free first-person shooter game that was developed by the U.S. Army using the Unreal engine. The Recon demo requires a whopping 203.9 MB download, and offers "four single player basic training missions including a rifle range, obstacle course and weapons course," as well as "six multiplayer missions including a homeland defense operation, urban training, freeing prisoners, and protecting against an act of ecological terrorism." Word from HomeLan Fed is that the login authorization and multiplayer servers are not due to be launched until the original release time of 3:00 AM EDT (midnight PDT) though. Further mirrors can be expected on the official site by that time as well. Update: Mirrors are already online at FilePlanet (registration required) and 3D Gamers.

"It's kind of like Microsoft. It's just so easy to point at the big guy and call him Asshole."

Hey are you forgetting that Bill Gates not only stole the Windows operating system from IBM, but he's tries to get open sorce software banned every opportunity he gets. C'mon, wake up! Gates is every bit as bad as the American Government.

The whole point is... that the American government is lying to it's people and has pretty much declared that we are going to be "at war" until we have access to all of the world's petroleum and any other natural resources that it deems a necessity. OPEC and all of the multi-national corporations are now in control of the US government and every political decision that it makes is in the interest of big business, not the people it has been elected to govern. Republicans and Democrats, both are in the pockets of big business. Besides, I thought video games weren't supposed to influence or promote violent behavior. How is this a valid propaganda tool if that's true? Or is it the militaries way of just pissing away a buttload of cash so they can say, "Oh well, that video game idea didn't work. It must be because we didn't spend enough of the tax payer's money. It's time we ask for a bigger budget."

I've seen some of the posts on this message board and some of you are losing site of what the real issue is here.
