So much more than war...

The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Nerds Going Commando

Sorry for the lack of updates on Friday. I was gone all day because, in an unlikely set of circumstances, I was being trained all day by navy SEALs. Then I drank too much.

This was for Sony's upcoming PSP game, SOCOM: Tactical Assault, which, like Ratchet & Clank, I'm not allowed to talk about yet. Bah.

I can talk about the day however, which was educational and thrilling. It all took place at a giant Airsoft facility, which for those of you who do not know, is basically a place where you shoot each other with full-auto military replica BB guns. They seriously sting.

The SEALs taught us how to storm a room, how to provide covering fire, how to control an area, and other drills. Then they unleashed us in teams of five on a hostile "Panamanian Village" with different objectives - from escaping to the U.S. embassy to rescuing a hostage. Very fun (because the bullets weren't lead) and I know more about urban warfare tactics than I ever expected to.

Note to Panama: Heads up.

In the end, I was sweaty (it was like 100 degrees), a little sore, and better educated. I also suffered the "Forrest Gump" - I got shot in the buttocks. It left a welt.

Then I flew to my brother's 30th birthday party. The drinking speaks for itself.
