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.

Hell ya, it's all about the oil. The world will see great repercussions within the next 10 years when the oil supply becomes exhausted. And, of course, the US, consuming over half of all petroleum used the world, is right in the middle of it. We're all screwed. Sure, we could switch to coal, and increase the greenhouse affect tenfold. But on a lighter, more comical note, my brother downloaded and installed Army Ops. He got pissed because the drill instructor kept making him redo the climb down. Seriously, he must have done it 20 times. Then, he asked me to TRY. 2nd time, I did it fine. Oh, yeah, he's in ROTC,(reserver officer training core... or is it corps? oh well) and is going to field training in one week. It just proves how no matter what type of game you play, it's still a GAME. It doesn't give you any REAL SKILLS. And yes, my brother plays CS (bah, game sucks, became old over 2 years ago)
and many other games on a daily basis, which relates to post 145. "But believe me, no matter how good you are at Counterstrike or Q3, it only takes one real bullet or shell or grenade fragment to maim or kill you. So be careful. Think, think, think. War is a means of last resort. "

Amen, Mawwman.

And, Finally- My opinion.

....this GAME is good. For about 10 minutes. I like how you get called for a safety violation if you fire your weapon before the drill instructor finished briefing you on it, but firing in the air is no violation at all. Uh huh. Just wait till those bullets come down. Ouch.
