Iron Storm Site

4X Studio and Wanadoo have recently launched the official Iron Storm site, showcasing this upcoming first- and third-person action game set in an alternate World War I that's still raging in 1964. The multi-lingual site requires Flash and offers plenty of information on the game's backstory, missions, characters and weapons, as well as 16 new screenshots, some artwork and wallpapers, a familiar movie trailer, a brief FAQ, and even a Flash sniping game. Thanks ToTheGame for the tip.

I guess I see anti-hero stuff more because my Modern American Lit teacher really pounded the concept into our heads when we read Catch 22 for class
And I don't know if it was the intention or anything, but it does remind me alot of the way Yossarian would act. Shown by such quotes on the website as:
when the hell am I going to be left in peace
He only has one motivating desire: to survive.
Psychological profile: he is at breaking point…

It seems to fit into that catagory mostly because in a war fiction setting, there seem to be about five types of characters: fearful, patriotic, manipulative, indignant, and apathetic. From the way they talk about Weasel, he seems to be the fifth. He doesn't seem to care about the war, he just wants out of it. But he can't get out of it because he's so good at killing things, which he does only to survive. (Huh. Sounds like a catch 22 :))

Although if you want funny, read about the rest of the characters under "Pawns on the chessboard". I can't wait to see what happens with the trigger-happy manic depressive.
