America's Army Launch Details

U.S. Army Launches "America's Army" PC Game on the Internet is the press release with further details on the plan to release "a special 'Recon' version of 'America's Army,' an innovative, realistic computer game providing civilians with an inside perspective and a virtual role in today's premier land force: the U.S. Army." This is a 10 level version of the "Operations" action-oriented portion of the game that will be a massive 220 MB download. Here is more on this release:

In the July 4 "Recon" version the virtual soldier experience begins with basic training missions that include the rifle range, obstacle course and McKenna Urban Training Site at Fort Benning, Ga. After completing basic training, players progress to online multiplayer missions ranging from defense of the Alaskan Pipeline against terrorism as a member of the 172nd Infantry Brigade (Separate) from Fort Wainwright, Alaska, to homeland defense as a member of the 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) from Fort Drum, N.Y. Throughout the summer the Army will make additional missions available for download, culminating with CD release of the full game at the end of the summer. The game was developed using the latest version of Epic Games' "Unreal Engine." and is optimized for NVIDIA GeForce2(TM) graphics processors.

"2.) to keep a portion of the population in front of their computers not thinking about what's going on until every single right and freedom is stripped away from them by the government that's controlled by major corporations."

Now thats just funny (in a paranoid "Big Brother is watching" kind of way). Go back to your shack in the woods and clean that rifle.

Really tho, promoting (or propaganda as you call it) the (place the service of your choice here)military has been around for a long time. Whats the difference of handing out free T-shirts or pencils at job fairs, etc to making a video game....well the video game is a lot cooler than a pencil IMO.

But to say its a ploy to turn us into idiots to distract us of the outside world is just a bit much. As a disabled vet I pretty much play nothing but games now most of my time but I'm vary aware, if not more so, of whats going on in the world (not from the games mind you but from surfing news sties and watching CNN as I play).

Just about every game has had some kinda of enemy "created" for me...just becuase this is being produced and has the US Army stamp on it makes it a Gov. Conspiracy? I dont think so.
