An Army of One Big Price Tag

It has been commented more than once that the "free" price tag on America's Army, the upcoming Unreal engine Army game/recruiting tool, is relative, since it is being paid for by tax dollars. Now Army gets into game development business on CNN Money places a figure on the development budget of the game, said to be currently around $7 Million, offering a bit of detail about the planning and concept behind the game, and even providing a reaction from the president of Americans for Tax Reform.

I think what he means is remanants of things in the bible have been found. Lost cities, artifacts, things like that. And The dead sea scrolls which proves that at least the first part of the bible has been around for an extremely long time. I have never seen or heard of any proof in any other theories. You can believe in whatever you want, but I think that the theories of Evolution and Big Bang make less sense than there being a God.

", I'll stick with the religious point since a Lot of the things in the Bible have been proven to be correct. "

What are you talking about? Give some examples....

Proven to be correct? Oh my, what crazy zealot educated you?

He's not gullible, it's his belief. I think you are gullible for not listening to what someone like him has to say, instead you blindly believe these "experts" who say, hey, a bunch of rocks blew up, and now we are here. You need to stop sucking your cock and take your head out of your dogs pussy. Oh, one more thing, take a shower, I bet you smell like shit.

I guess you can think that religion is make believe, but tell me this, do you think that the "Big Bang" created us? Evolution? I think thats all shit too, and until someone can come up with a reasonable answer to how we were here, I'll stick with the religious point since a Lot of the things in the Bible have been proven to be correct.

What happened to this thread over the weekend? It seems that no sooner is nationalism invoked than someone will disinter the moldy corpse of religion so we can all fight even harder!

Ignoring the huge pile of cruddy posts about who invented what, and how America clearly leads the fight against Global Terrorism (I can only imagine the definition of Global Terrorism is Terrorism by the Global Nations against America as they seem pretty disinterested in smiting any other terrorists at present) I want to talk about Real War.

Real War has many bad points. It DOES touch upon logistics - and you can work on many different ways to bring supplies into your base - Air Force, Army and Navy - but it completely ignores most of the logistical concerns of running an Army. Those points are accumulated, spent and refreshed - there is no drain on them from maintaining your existing troops.

In addition the Media war is totally ignored. War should be a matter of accumulating large standing conventional forces to physically hold and defend land and also constructing highly trained strike teams to wage limited offensive war aimed at your enemies logistical or strike capabilities. The side that can maintain logistics, territorial superiority and strike capability whilst also winning the media war wins. That's why wars are fought very carefully these days - it would be possibly to totally win the military side of a war and lose the media side of it, and have your successes made counter-productive.

Real War ignored these truisms - it made you establish and defend supply routes and it made you have to cope with the air threat, but land warfare and naval warfare assets were risible. In addition it allows you to build a nuke - can you imagine a US or Coalition force EVER deploying nuclear weapons against a tactical threat? The possibility is laughable!

Let's leave Real War behind now - as it deserves - and discuss the new FPS being made by the Army.

I think, from what I've seen, that the Military have done a bang up job this time. I haven't seen it running - which is the true test - but it almost doesn't have to be fun. It's a roleplaying game - especially when you add in the 2D strategy game that they're releasing alongside it. The Army only needs to provide a technically competent offering along with real Army flavour, tech and doctrine. If it isn't "fun" that says as much about the player as the game!

God or no God you people should learn that the human mind NEEDS spirituality. We are wired for it. If you deny that need, you will pay for it in the end.

I'm not telling you to go out and find God, there are many, many forms of spirituality. Plenty of which do not require the existance of a deity.

"Real war" is a strategy game that is supposedly a commercial version of a US army training program. It was crap, the graphics were awful and it lacked any kind of real world strategy. And if I meant real warfare I would of said "you'll know what I mean if you have ever been in a real war."

On the subject of religon I agree that God is make-believe but its not my belief that that is the purpose of religon. In my mind religon is a set of principles to live by the will improve your quality of life. Heaven and Hell may not exist but by striving to live to the virtues of religon you will be a better person because of it.

"played real war" Is that what they say now? That they played in WW2, or Desert Storm, or any other major military conflict? Besides, it's a game, they never said that what the GAME is is the real thing. Of course if you ever wanna find out what real war training is like I'm sure they'd point you in the right direction...
