    Although i am a huge fan of fighting games, i do venture off into other gaming territory. If You havn't heard already, the Army introduced a new Online FPS that costs absolutely nothing. To sum the strory up, It's under a budget of 6.3 million dollars, and has been in the works for 3 years. It is strictly online, and best of all, its free.

    Heres the link where you can make the Download. Be weary...its 201 mb....YIKES!!

    (just go to the bottom of the article, click the 'CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD', and you will brought to a suffice doanloader from (i believe this file is only a few hundred kb. After you get that downloaded, you can start the real one for the Army program.

    I think the game is called America's Army, and I hear that it may be used as a recruitment tool.

    Watch out for those black helicopters.

    Been playing AA:O Recon with my old Q2/UT/T2 buddies since it was released last Wednesday evening.

    Once you get past the MOUT McKenna authorization snafu, figure out how to use a server browser other that LameSpy, and logon to non-HomeLAN servers, the game itself is excellent (gameplay- and graphics-wise)!

    Hopefully a patch will be released soon that will feature an in-game server browser, better auth code, and dedicated server implementation, and this game might... just *might*... start to approach CS levels of popularity (featuring the next-gen Unreal engine and being a free download doesn't hurt, either!).

    I now have a small private server running America's Army: Operations Recon, for those interested in playing without having to deal with the LameSpy/HomeLAN/MOUT issues.


    Load up the game and press ~ (tilde) to bring up the console, then type "open" (without the quotes) and press enter to join the server.

    Good news -- you don't need to qualify in MOUT McKenna to play on this server!

    For now, there is no kosher way to utilize a map rotation in an automated fashion (until the patch comes out early next week), but I manually switch between the 3 best maps available once in awhile -- Bridge, Insurgent Camp, Pipeline (all three use real guns and 'nades rather than MILES training equipment).
