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...

U.S. Marines To Get World's Coolest Video Game

Sure, they say their new holographic  "Infantry Immersion Trainer" is all about training, so then why do I want to play so much?

From the San Diego Union Tribune:

The Marine Corps is embracing breakthrough holographic technology to teach combat tactics and battlefield ethics at Camp Pendleton as troops there begin another major round of deployments to Iraq.

The 32,000-square foot, $2.5 million training ground became reality after a request from Gen. James Mattis, former commander of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Pendleton.
It takes its inspiration from a city block that U.S. troops typically would patrol in Iraq, complete with a warren of shops and houses. Hardly a detail is overlooked among the props modeled with Hollywood set-design techniques: Wash hangs on the clotheslines. A cooking grill sits against the wall. Propane tanks are placed here and there amid the musky scent of unpaved streets and alleys.

Perched in the rafters are projectors that cast life-sized images of civilians and insurgents on wall after wall in the building. Live actors and pyrotechnics round out the integration of sight, sound and smell.

Sounds like a blast when it's not the real thing. Going to Iraq to experience the non-holographic version does not sound like fun in the least, especially considering one of the guys working at the facility had both his hands blown off.
