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.

197. Sick of the "Dont give a shit" attitude Jul 6, 2002, 01:39 JoeBlack
I've been reading a ton of "I don't give a shit bout the army" attitude and frankly it is sorely disappointing. I know there are millions of people who are thankful for the service, but this kind of attitude is disgusting.

Ok so let's say the army DOES suck. Would you rather they just fold up and cease operations? How about retract all military officers and put them back into civilian life or immigration guard duty. Let's see how long the United States lasts without a fully functional military.

And while we're on the subject of retracting military forces, let's pull trade and industry out of every other country and make the United States solitary and confined, I'm sure we can survive on our oil reserves for several decades until we develop better solutions. I'll bet that'll make Europe, the Middle East and Asia happy. Oh and while we're pulling all these back, why not stop immigration for good and just build huge walls guarded by the retracted Military forces.

There are going to be some greatly pissed off Country political leaders about why we have just suddenly gone into a self isolation mode.

Now we can also solve unemployment by having unemployed and homeless people doing what overseas manufacturing plants were doing.

Fucking christ..
