America's Army 3 Released

The America's Army Website announces the release on Steam of America's Army 3, the third iteration of this freeware military shooter designed by the U.S. Army, which launches along with the promised America's Army online graphic novel. Here's a bit from the game launch announcement:

In America's Army 3, Every Detail CountsTM and as a result, the game has more authentic military elements including training, technology, weapons, and audio than any other military game. Built on Unreal Engine 3, AA3 delivers stunningly realistic environments, lighting effects, animations, and team-based experiences so that America's Army players can experience how Soldiers train, live, and advance in the Army. Players are bound by Rules of Engagement (ROE) and gain experience as they navigate challenges in team-based, multiplayer, force-on-force operations. In the game, a player's actions and demonstrated Army values are integral to successful mission accomplishment and affect a player's career progression.

The game is launching with five different environments, each with three different mission scenario options for a total of 15 different map/mission combinations. Initially, the core of the gameplay focuses on an Infantry Soldier (11B). Players first complete Basic Combat Training and then progress to Advanced Individual Training for a variety of specialized roles that the Infantry Soldier performs, such as Advanced Rifleman, Automatic Rifleman, Squad Designated Marksman, and Grenadier. This advanced training allows players to unlock new abilities and gear, customize their gear and equipment loads, increase their in-game skill level, and progress in their Army careers.

Yea, good job...run away in defeat and then try to insult me in the process. My job tenure there was not developing the game, I worked as an AACM that oversaw the IRC networks and volunteer staff, so I didn't contribute to anything there. I was, however, a beta tester on the original project for over 4 years, so in a sense I did contribute there...suffice to say, I still know everyone personally on the project and have spoken to a few of them on this regard, so take that as you will my friend, I'm sure you'll have some way to distort it to make it seem like Valve is all rosy and good.

That said...the only one who has issues here with comprehension is you, Dagok, as we are all looking at things from a majority perspective and seeing that that majority is having issues with Steam's content delivery service. You, on the other hand, seem to have this notion that Steam is some god-send to gaming and that nothing they do is every bad...we like to call those types of people clueless fanboys.
